2012 in Review
I would like to thank everyone who made Wait! What’s a Dial?’s first year so successful. Every view makes writing and editing this blog worth it. Since WordPress.com has compiled a 2012 annual report, I have decided to share our good news with everyone.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 13,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals

Let’s make this year even better than last!
Sincerely,Allison LipsWait! What’s a Dial? Editor/Founder
Introducing Our Newest Blogger: Jeremy Einbinder
I’m Jeremy and I am majoring in Radio/Television/Film at Rowan University. I have an interest in sitcoms and stand up. My favorite show lately is Community.
I hope to work in TV production or writing of some kind once I graduate. This is my first time working on a blog, but since it is about television, I feel like I’m in my element. I will always have a strong opinion and a unique perspective, one that usually differs from that of the general public. Sometimes things thought of as good, even exceptional, tend to bore me. Other times, TV thought of as horrible tends to hold my attention. It could be that I genuinely like it or because it’s a car crash I can’t turn away from.
Regardless, I’m excited to find my voice and to put my name out there. I will continue to be an outspoken contributor. Whether you like it or you hate it, I’m going to be doing the job.
Introducing Our Newest Blogger: Stewart Norton
I have a degree in advertising. Therefore, I enjoy watching the SuperBowl more for the commercials. I am a huge fan of nostalgia, especially everything from 90s Nickelodeon.
Some current shows that I like are The Biggest Loser, The Celebrity Apprentice, Family Guy (and the other Fox animated sitcoms), South Park, and anything with Gordon Ramsey.
I also am fond of Nintendo, especially Mario Bros., and Pokemon as well as Pixar and Toy Story.
Welcome to Wait! What’s A Dial?
At Wait! What’s A Dial?, you will read a twenty-something year old’s opinion on TV. As someone who is studying radio/television/film and journalism in college, I hope to give the opinion of a young person, who actually knows what they’re talking about.
I have a particular fondness for late night television. I love Jimmy Fallon, Conan, David Letterman, Johnny Carson, and Steve Allen. (Yes, I’ve actually watched the latter two men.)
My favorite shows are anything with Steve Allen, David Letterman Hogan’s Heroes (don’t judge), The Monkees (cute boys), Burns and Allen, The Jack Benny Program, Good Eats, and British panel shows.
Current shows that I watch are America’s Got Talent (because it reminds me of the Gong Show, again don’t judge), Law & Order, and sometimes 30 Rock.
