Courtney and I are just broken up over Tim Russert passing. We haven't updated this site in a long time because TV is so bad these days, beyond bad, but Russert was one of the few people we always watched and enjoyed. We'll miss him.
USA Today details how many people are being cut at which parts of the NBC empire. We think they can afford all these cuts mainly due to Campbell Brown’s ability to cover everything from Weekend Today to elections. Go Campbell.
Sad day. One of our favorite non-NBC shows is 60 Minutes. Sure, sometimes it has its own agenda and the stories seem slanted from the very beginning, but they do a great job of covering stories no one else has even glanced at. Even their celebrity coverage is really interesting.
Bradley was one of the best of the group, if not the best. He had a flawless interview style and a voice that was perfect for TV or radio. He is simply a legend of TV news that will be missed.
While we enjoyed the light-hearted and predictable antics of “Friends” for most of its 10-year run, we really don’t miss seeing new episodes or learning about what happened to Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Rachael, Ross and Joey. We certainly don’t need to hear from Joey ever, ever again. But Jennifer Anniston is open to doing a “thanksgiving episode” reunion-type one-off. OK, maybe we’d watch that.
