Welcome To My World
Welcome to my world! The start of the fall TV season tonight seems like a good time to start my TV blog, so here goes....
Channel 12 News
Look for a change in the weather at Channel 12. Jude Redfield, weekend evening meteorological for 3 years, is going to WTHR-TV (Channel 13) in Indianapolis. His departure is a bit of a surprise, considering he's a Fort Wright native and '95 Covington Catholic grad. He had interned at Channel 12 in 1997, then was hired in 2002 from a station in Norfolk, Va. His last day is Sept. 29.
Did you watch the Emmys? I found them fairly entertaining, and I agreed with awards for "Everybody Loves Raymond" (show and cast) and "Lost." I figured that one of the "Desperate Housewives" would win best comedy actress, but giving it to Felicity Huffman puzzled me. Not my choice.
I like Ellen Degeneres, but they gave her some dumb time-wasting things to do (chatting with bartender, taking TV set into the women's restroom). Could have used that time to air more clips. But Jon Stewart (deserving double winner) was terrific, and so was S. Epatha Merkerson's wardrobe malfuction that kept her from reaching her prepared remarks. A priceless, spontaneous, hilarious moment...
New TV tonight
Looking forward to the fall TV season starting tonight. Too bad the best two new comedies air at 8:30 pm against each other -- "How I Met Your Mother" on CBS (Ch 9) and "Kitchen Confidential" on Fox (Ch 19). Those without TiVo stuck chosing just one, take "How I Met Your Mother" and forgive CBS for the soon-to-be-tired Bob Saget voiceover. Personally, I'm most geeked about new "Two And A Half Men," the best sitcom now on TV.
Of all the new sci-fi shows, "Surface" was to me the least impressive (8 pm, NBC, Channel 5)
And don't forget to catch Martha Stewart tonight on Letterman.
