MICHAEL WEATHERLY STARS IN "BULL" ON CBS

It was tough to see Michael Weatherly leave “NCIS” since it was one of my favorite shows. I watched it mainly because of him. I liked his cocky and suave character, Special Agent, Anthony DiNozza.

I tuned in for Weatherly’s new CBS show “Bull” which debuted Sept. 20 and will air Tuesday nights at 9/8c. It took a minute to warm up to “Bull,” but I’m still going to give it a chance.

“Bull” is actually inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, yep, the talk show host, Dr. Phil.

Weatherly stars as Dr. Jason Bull, the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting...

Finally, “Empire,” is back for a third season and returns Sept. 21 on Fox.

Look for “Murder in the First” star Taye Diggs to join Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yass” Gray), Andre (Trai Byers) and the rest of the eclectic cast of “Empire.”

Diggs landed a recurring role on the show and will star as Angelo Dubois, a well-heeled New York City councilman that most likely is going to butt heads with the Lyons.

This should be another exciting and riveting season that will also include guest appearances by Sierra McClain, Mariah Carey French Montana and Birdman.

One major change of note is the departure of Timbaland who led the music team for Seasons 1 and 2,...

COLIN KAEPERNICK AIDED BY CHANGE IN CLIMATE FOR PROTEST

By: Richard Prince, “Journal-isms”

Sports and political commentators might be debating San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem, but what might be most remarkable is the change in climate that permits Kaepernick to make his protest without penalty.

That’s the view of William C. Rhoden, who wrote his final column for the New York Times last month after...
