Point/Counterpoint is a recurring feature on BDCwire which explores the pros and cons of various parts of life in Boston. These arguments may, or may not, break any new ground, but are meant as a starting point for you too to make an argument. Today’s debate surrounds the popular annual television event, Shark Week. What do you think? Are you pro-Shark Week or anti-Shark Week? Here are our two sides, but be sure to cast your vote below. More
Batman Day is today, coming shortly after his 75th birthday, and he couldn’t be more beloved than he is right now.

We could've seen it a mile a way, but whenever Jimmy Fallon has an opportunity to dust off the old Neil Young impression, it's both accurate and completely against anything the real Neil Young would likely perform.

Let the dogs have their day!
It's the good, the bad, and the ugly this week in late night. Some nights Fallon is killing it with his guests and music choices, and other nights Letterman is on point. Either way, if you’re being lazy this week and don’t feel like making your way to the abundance of fun events going down in Boston now that the weather is nice, you may find yourself watching some late night talk shows. Here are some of the best and not so great guests appearing this week.More
