About Paige Wiser
I'm a free-lance writer with a full-time job: I'm Director of Communications at Saint Viator High School in Arlington Heights, Illinois. I'm an alum, too, Class of 1988. You should enroll your children there immediately.
In my down time, I'm the TV critic on ABC-7's "Windy City Live." On Sunday nights, I talk entertainment with WGN AM-720's Bill Leff and my former movie-reviewing partner, David Plummer. You can find a lot of my writing at Michigan Avenue magazine. I also free-lance as a muse when I can fit it into my schedule.
During the last couple of decades in the newspaper business, I served as reporter, critic, and columnist at the Chicago Sun-Times. Regular columns included "Planet Paige," in which I wrote about the quirkier side of the news; "Camera Obscura," which celebrated B movies; and "BioFeedback," which distilled celebrity biographies.
I earned my bachelor's degree at Notre Dame and my master's at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. I'm thinking of putting "philosopher/adventuress" on my business cards.

“The Challenge: Rivals” (9 p.m., MTV): I’m not entirely proud of this, but I have not missed an episode this summer. I watch for Kenny Santucci, who should be cast in a (non-dancing) remake of “Saturday Night Fever,” and CT — who erotically enslaves every woman by just standing there.
“Friday Night Lights” (9 p.m., TNT): The movie, set in 1988, with Billy Bob Thornton and Tim McGraw.
“Confessions: Animal Hoarding” (9 p.m., Animal Planet): Updates from fan favorites — including the guy with more than 100 chickens!
