TMR: Another tough one. I spent 15 years in Hollywood and wrote on more than 100 episodes of sitcoms, plus a lot of movies that never got made (and, ahem, one that did). A lot of it runs together. The two things I co-wrote overall that I loved the most was a pilot for a reboot of “The Muppet Show” — I am a Muppet freak. Maybe you’ve seen a show recently that seems to be inspired by it.

“Shane looked great last week in practice, obviously he’s not in great football shape,” Broncos coach Vance Joseph said after Wednesday’s practice. “But Shane’s going to play … he’ll start. Shane provides, opposite of Von, that great rusher so they can’t tee off on Von. They Kids Basketball Jerseys Cheap can’t Design Cheap Jerseys chip Von, they can, but it would force them to run three-man routes. We like that.”
