OUT OF THE CORNER OF MY EYE - 9/18/13
Here are a few more news items I've noticed over the last few days:
- A&E really, really wants you to watch Bonnie & Clyde, its new 2-part miniseries. How bad do they want your eyeballs? They're airing it on 3 networks.
- Japanese-born entertainer Reiko Douglas, a fixture on talk shows in the '60s and '70s, has died at 77.
- Don't look for quick cancellations this season, as networks plan to rely more on longer-term ratings data.
- More people are using HD Radio ... at least according to the folks who came up with it. Although, with so few HD Radio stations around here, one wonders if that is actually the case in the Tri-State ...
- And down in Nashville, they'll be looking for a new boss at legendary 650 WSM as GM Tom English has announced he's leaving the station.
