My generation will no doubt remember that old Ironside TV show on NBC, back during the late 60's to the mid-70's or so. It was huge hit for the network. If you remember the show, I'll bet you can remember how the show's theme music started. I'll also bet that it's even been sampled by rappers.

Objections from the families of both women aside, I watched about 30 minutes of it, and, I'm sorry folks, I just couldn't continue. There's a Lifetime movie aesthetic that just isn't for me, but clearly it works for some. I don't have the ratings/viewership numbers yet, but Lifetime will likely issue a press release with those details, which we'll share here once we have them.

He's quite forgotten today, though there seems to be a lot of high schools across the country named in his honor. But I'm willing to bet that if you asked every student in all those schools and about 90% of the teachers, they would have no idea who Whitney Young was.

It's not a "black show" but it's a very good one, and I recommend you watch it - those with Netflix accounts (if you don't have a Netflix account, you'd have to sign up for one - it's only $8 a month - and check out the strong work that is House Of Cards, the on and offline film rental and streaming company's original series, set to compete with premium cablers like HBO and Showtime).
