This has been a great season for Curb, once again – how about Salman Rushdie appearing as himself, last week, to give Larry tips on the unexpected babe magnet appeal of “fatwa sex”? But tonight’s episode promises something even more delicious: Bryan Cranston, guest starring as Larry’s therapist, and dueling with him verbally in a counseling session. Cranston, of course, has worked with David before – on Seinfeld, where Cranston memorably played a dentist.
The Walking Dead launches its eighth season Sunday with the two sides inviting each other to a game of All-Out War. Given the story arc of Season 7 and the saturation promotion Season 8 has been receiving from AMC, that’s about as surprising as hearing that zombies are deficient in personal hygiene. Slightly less expected, perhaps, the creators drop in enough time-shifting and dream sequences that sometimes it takes work to figure out how it all fits together.
The horror, the horror . . . The Simpsons’ 28th Treehouse of Horror. Boo, it’s coming again on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, where Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie have been taking up residence since a Dec. 17, 1989 Christmas special. It’s so long ago that ABC’s original MacGyver and Dynasty series were still on the air and since have reemerged as reboots on CBS and The CW. Fox sends the latest Treehouse every October, always with an accompanying vessel full of Halloween candy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
