This time he was more aggressive and blamed Spencer for losing the game. If only he knew the real reason behind Spencer’s performance, maybe he would’ve curbed his jerkish reaction. Coop and her mother’s relationship is very charismatic and charming on the […]

‘The Neighborhood’ Makes a Welcome Addition to Fall Lineup

CBS’s new comedy The Neighborhood (beginning Monday, Oct. 1 at 8/7c) is a lighthearted comedy that pokes fun at race relations.

The Johnsons soon realize fitting […]
