Ebert adjustment

I had thought there was an earlier title for the Siskel & Ebert series, but couldn’t remember it when writing the previous piece. Luckily, Ebert has a goodbye-to-the-show column up that reminds us of it: Opening Soon at a Theater Near You. Yeah, there’s a title that trips off the tongue and falls on the sidewalk!

But I still don’t understand how this is a goodbye any more than the previous switches.

I also don’t understand how this is at all a smart move for Disney. Yes, simply adding some features to the existing show might conceivably have pumped business somewhat. But it was like they were almost trying to start their own competition that would sap more viewers than their new move would gain.

I guess that’s why I’m not a big-time TV executive.
