Univision’s upfront presentation Tuesday in New York City included some surprises and lots of more-of-the-same programming announcements. There were some humorous moments, though, including a collective seizure (i.e. Harlem Shake) performed by Steve Mandala and his top sales team. However, … Continue reading ?
This blogger is so tired from all this partying busy this week, that a proper upfront round-up will not come until the weekend (sit tight.) However, I thought you’d like to know that barely minutes after Univision wrapped its upfront presentation … Continue reading ?

Speaking of Cinco de Mayo and concoctions that make no sense, Dos Equis is now offering some kind of Cinco de Mayo Combo featuring “Mexican cuisine” (i.e. chicken wings.) In short: When in doubt (about what’s Mexican or not) just stick … Continue reading ?
I hate Cinco de Mayo in the U.S., not so much because it’s a reminder of how clueless people are about Mexican history, but because it is also the time to market some of the stupidest, senseless food & drink concoctions … Continue reading ?
