The Best and Worst of 2008: This Week on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

The year in television will be the focus this week on TV CONFIDENTIAL, Tuesday, Dec. 30 beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.2008 said goodbye to The Shield and The Wire, but hello to Swingtown and Life on Mars. It was a year that saw the election of a new president, and an award-winning HBO series about the life of one of our first presidents. It was also a year in which Saturday Night Live rose once again to watercooler status… while CNN went just a bit overboard with some of its high-tech graphics. We’ll look at the good, the bad, the ridiculous and the sublime… both as we see it, and as you see it as well.

Join Frankie Montiforte and me, along with our guest, David Krell, as we look back in the year in television—the good, the bad, the ridiculous and the sublime… both as we see it, and as you see it as well. It all starts Tuesday, Dec. 30 beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:30pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org. Ed Robertson
