“the Pauline Kael of reality TV.”

Jon Kroll, Emmy-winning reality TV producer

“I don’t really watch a lot of reality television, mind you, but I must admit my day is never complete without a peek at Andy’s flawless Weblog devoted to the subject, realityblurred.com.”

Whitney Matheson, USA TODAY

PRSA Orlando

“Andy provided great insight into today’s media culture as a moderator of our program on sex, race and religion. His work as a blogger, author, and educator helped guide the panel discussion so our audience better understood the relevance of the topic. His expertise on reality television also added a unique perspective to the conversation.”

“a Virgil to guide you through television’s latest ring of hell”

Entertainment Weekly

KCRW's The Spin-Off podcast

“Andy, for over a decade now, has been one of our leading chroniclers of unscripted television. What I love about his tweets and his site is [that] he’s the perfect mix of a reality fan and critic. … He’s a little bit of a treasure on the unscripted front.”

quotation marks

“Andy spoke at the public library about the use of advertising in Facebook; he spoke in an engaging manner and presented the information in understandable terms to an audience of older adults who do not always trust social media sites. Audience members left with an understanding of how advertising is used in Facebook and what they needed to do to protect their privacy in Facebook.”
