TV Upfronts: ABC, FOX, and NBC Announce Renewals, Cancellations, and Series Orders, ‘Clarice’ & More Heading to Paramount+

Even though they’re not quite as celebratory or hyped as usual thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s TV upfront presentations are still unfolding this month. So far, NBC, ABC and FOX have revealed series orders and trailers for the new shows coming up for the 2021-2022 season. But with new shows coming in and the reliable ones sticking around, there are plenty of shows that won’t be coming back for another season. Find out the latest updates from the 2021-2022 TV upfronts presentation...

This blast from the radio past will give you plenty to talk about

Ever wonder why certain things are the way they are in radio? Ever want to use little-known radio trivia in casual conversation to impress your friends or at parties to meet the person of your dreams? You’ve come to the right place. I got the idea for this subject matter by talking with friends and realizing … a lot of what people think they know about radio isn’t necessarily right. Here’s one example: • You may have heard — I’ve even written it here — that the iconic jingles used in the Boss Ra...

Baseball Report: Are The White Sox The Best Team In The Majors?

(CBS Chicago) — MLB has played a quarter of its regular season. And with most of the league around the 40-game mark in their schedule, no team has really distinguished itself as a dominating force. Even the Los Angeles Dodgers, thought to be destined for another 100-win season en route to a World Series defense, have dropped to third in their division. There’s a lot of baseball left, of course. But parity is keeping things interesting now. This week’s Baseball Report looks at the Chicago White S...

Dodgers’ Edwin Rios reflects on shoulder injury: ‘it just wasn’t getting better’

LOS ANGELES  ― Edwin Rios didn’t know how serious the pain in his right shoulder was until an MRI revealed the bad news: a partially torn labrum. On Wednesday, the Dodgers announced the 27-year-old infielder will undergo surgery, ending his season. Thus ended a frustrating couple months for Rios, who was a key contributor off the bench as the Dodgers ended their 32-year championship drought last year. His power stroke never returned after he reported to spring training, or for the first month of...

Alexander: Kevin Garnett provided Kobe’s NBA template

It might be stretching things, from the prism of hindsight, to say now that Kevin Garnett was the guy who Kobe Bryant wanted to be. And it is sort of a weird confluence that as Bryant is posthumously inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday, he will be joined by Garnett, who blazed the preps-to-pros trail that Bryant followed, as well as enshrinees Tim Duncan and Rudy Tomjanovich. Role model? Certainly. Garnett was the first player in two decades to make the move from high ...

Sparks, WNBA celebrate 25th season and progress

From the “We Got Next” inaugural campaign to this season’s “Count It” slogan, honoring 25 years of WNBA basketball ahead of the start of the 2021 season Friday, those involved have been taking stock of the importance of the league’s longevity. “The younger girls on this team have always had an opportunity to dream of coming here,” said Seimone Augustus, a four-time WNBA champion and three-time gold medalist who retired Thursday at 37, on the eve of the Sparks’ 2021 season opener against the Dall...

Star Wars Celebration moves up dates for 2022 event at Anaheim Convention Center

The world’s biggest gathering of Star Wars fans set to return to Anaheim in August 2022 has been pushed forward a few months as convention centers begin to reemerge from pandemic closures and event dates get shuffled. The Star Wars Celebration will return to Anaheim Convention Center in 2022 on May 26-29 — more than two months earlier than expected. Lucasfilm initially announced last summer that the Star Wars Celebration would return to Anaheim in 2022 on Aug. 18-21. “We can’t wait to welcome fa...

How the Parkland survivors inspired ‘Us Kids,’ a documentary about their post-shooting activism

Samantha Fuentes says she trusted director Kim A. Snyder to tell the story of how she and her classmates survived a school shooting with empathy and understanding and a shared sense of purpose. Still, Fuentes was nervous as she took her seat in a theater at the Sundance Film Festival for the premiere of the documentary “Us Kids” last year. “It was a highly emotional experience, especially because I was not only in the room with my close friends and family, but also a room full of strangers,” say...

Are Dodgers balancing long view with sense of urgency during slump?

ANAHEIM >> They have become like daily affirmations for the Dodgers as they skidded through their worst stretch in four seasons. It’s a long season, they said nightly. And, doggone it, things are bound to get better. “It’s easy to make a big thing of what’s going on. But we’re playing fine,” Walker Buehler said after Wednesday’s loss in Chicago. “We’ve been in these games and we’ll just keep plugging away. Obviously, we’ve got to expect some of these things to turn for us. I think we have the pe...

Angels’ Joe Maddon values Patrick Sandoval as ‘middle-inning closer’

ANAHEIM — Two games into Patrick Sandoval’s season, he’s shown encouraging signs of being ready to take the next step in his big-league development. Eventually, that will likely lead Sandoval into the Angels’ rotation. In the meantime, though, Manager Joe Maddon said there’s no need to rush him to high-leverage spots in the bullpen, because he said there’s plenty of value to be had as a long reliever. “I love middle-inning closers,” Maddon said. “That’s been a big part of the success that I’ve b...

Angels pile on struggling Dodgers, end their own 5-game slide

ANAHEIM — Desperately searching for the missing ingredient that will turn around their extended skid, the Dodgers tried to borrow a cup of sugar from their neighbor only to have the door slammed in their faces. Justin Upton and Taylor Ward hit home runs in a four-run second inning and the Angels piled on the struggling Dodgers, handing them a 9-2 defeat in the first game of this year’s Freeway Series at Angel Stadium. The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Angels. While this was a wee...

Dodgers will start Clayton Kershaw on short rest Saturday

ANAHEIM — Clayton Kershaw won’t have to wait long to put the shortest start of his career behind him. The Dodgers will start Kershaw on just three days’ rest on Saturday night against the Angels. The left-hander became an option to fill a vacancy in the starting rotation created by Dustin May’s season-ending injury when he lasted just one inning in Chicago on Tuesday. “I think it was just kind of what happened his last start,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Just feeling he could get back ou...

Dodgers activate Joe Kelly from Injured List

On Wednesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said reliever Joe Kelly would join the team “soon.” “Soon” arrived Thursday afternoon. The Dodgers activated Kelly from the Injured List in advance of their three-game weekend series against the Angels. Left-hander Scott Alexander replaced him on the IL with shoulder inflammation. Alexander had not pitched since Saturday in Milwaukee and Roberts said Tuesday that Alexander had come up “sore” and was unavailable for the doubleheader in Chicago. Before We...

Dodgers lose in extra innings again, get swept by Cubs

The Dodgers seem to be stuck in ‘Groundhog Day.’ Like weatherman Phil Connors, they might have to die a thousand deaths before they can break out of the loop. The Dodgers blew one-run leads in three of the last four innings Wednesday night – first on an eighth-inning error by Corey Seager, then on a blown save by Kenley Jansen in the 10th and again in the 11th – and lost to the Chicago Cubs, 6-5, in 11 innings. The loss completed a three-game sweep for the Cubs. It is the first time the Dodgers ...

Hoornstra: For minor league baseball players, the psychological effect of a lost season was real

When the daily activities at the alternate site camp ended, Josiah Gray went back to the team hotel and took a nap. He would wake up in time to watch the Dodgers’ game at night. Then the 23-year-old pitcher would go back to sleep, rise early the next morning, and head back to USC – rinse, wash, repeat, until the 60-game regular season ended and the playoff “bubble” opened to prospects such as himself. At least that’s how Gray remembers it. There wasn’t much else a minor league player could do la...

LAUSD Board of Education decides not to extend 2021-22 school year

Rather than mandate a longer academic year, schools in the Los Angeles Unified district will only be required to provide the typical 180 days of instruction for the 2021-22 year — although individual campuses will have the option to offer extra class or staff development time, the Board of Education decided on Tuesday, May 4. The board’s unanimous vote, based on a recommendation by district staff, came a day after LAUSD leaders scrapped a proposal by Superintendent Austin Beutner to tack on 10 m...

Should The Edmonton Oilers Be Feared In The Playoffs?

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, It has been inevitable for some time now, so it’s easy for hockey fans in other markets to see the Edmonton Oilers clinch a playoff spot and simply shrug their shoulders. But for long suffering Oilers fans, whose team has made the playoffs exactly five times now in this 21st century — and just twice in the past 14 seasons — it is time to stop, maybe crack a beer, and enjoy a long slow pull. With a 5-3 win against the Vancouver Canucks Monday night, ...

Clayton Kershaw exits early and Dodgers lose opener of doubleheader

The force was not strong in this one. Clayton Kershaw allowed four runs and threw 39 pitches in the first inning of Tuesday’s doubleheader and the Dodgers went on to lose 7-1 in the seven-inning game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The 39 pitches in the first inning were the most Kershaw has ever thrown in the opening inning of a start – and he didn’t stick around to throw any more. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts pulled Kershaw after one inning, the shortest start of Kershaw’s major-...

José Quintana struggles, Anthony Rendon injured in Angels’ loss

ANAHEIM — The numbers didn’t add up for José Quintana in the Angels’ 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night. Quintana got off to an electric start, striking out five of the first six hitters, and he finished with nine strikeouts and just one walk. In between all that, though, he still managed to give up five more runs and get knocked out in the fourth inning, another disappointing performance. “Bad luck is the only luck this guy’s got,” Maddon lamented. Meanwhile, the Angels are hoping t...
