The governor speaks
If you want to hear and see Gov. Bob Taft’s last State of the State address, you’ve got several options:
--A live webcast will be streamed at the governor’s web site, www.taftnews.com. Archived video will be available after 3 p.m.
--If you just want to hear him, tune in Oxford’s WMUB-FM (88.5). It will also be audiostreamed at www.wmub.org.
--Taft’s address also will be available on a podcast after 3 p.m. on www.taftnews.com.
The new CW
Thanks for all the comments yesterday about the UPN-WB merger into the new CW network.
I agree with you: Keepers include Gilmore Girls, Smallville, Everwood, Veronic Mars. But Everwood may be on the bubble, having been knocked of the air for “Beauty and the Geek.”
There are lots of questions: Will the CW bring back 7th Heaven, which WB announced last month it was dropping due to the expense? Will CW keep the Monday night African-American comedies, the only place on broadcast TV you can find such diversity? Will Geek, Top Model and Smackdown squeeze other quality shows out of the lineup?
And if Channel 64 gets CW -- as Channel 38 owner Elliott Block expcts -- what's left for Channel 38? What brand identity will it develop without the UPN brand? And will Time Warner Cable (which only carries Ch 38 on evenings) consider dropping it without a network affiliation?
Close the book
NBC has canceled “The Book of Daniel” after only three telecasts, citing sinking ratings the last two weeks on Friday night.
