Well guys, welcome to another episode of Response. Today is June 7, 2011; and it’s very special because….
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!
Thank you, thank you. I’ve been looking on my Facebook wall and I appreciate all the wishes I’ve gotten so far.
Anyway, the big news today is this from TVBizWire at TV Week. Katie Couric could very well become the new Oprah. Jeff Zucker is going to be executive producer of a new daytime talk show slated for the 3 PM hour on the 12 ABC O&O (owned-and-operated) stations.
I’ve got mixed feelings about this, to be honest. What, I ask, is wrong with a game show? It’s cheaper and easier to produce than a talk show. In addition, daytime TV is flooded with talk shows. The only 4 games in syndication are Millionaire, Feud, Jeopardy, and Wheel. It would be refreshing to see more.
Of course, we did have that debacle in the past 4 years with Temptation, Crosswords, Trivial Pursuit, DonD, 5th Grader, and Lyrics. Of course, all this has happened before. Will history repeat itself? I don’t know.
As I begin another year of my life, I’m going to make it worth something. I’m going to make this blog the best it can possibly be. I hope you’ll be there with me on this journey.
