First the Reagans, now Michael Jackson

First the Reagans, now Michael Jackson
: Pity CBS’ scheduler. First, they had to scramble to replace The Reagans. Now they have to scramble to replace a Michael Jackson special that has been “postponed.”

Given the gravity of the charges against Mr. Jackson, we believe it would

be inappropriate at this time to broadcast an entertainment special.

However, we are very mindful that Mr. Jackson is innocent until proven

guilty. We will consider broadcasting the special after the due process of

the legal system runs its course.

Or they could send it to VH-1. [via Cory Bergman at Lost Remote]

The Day After

The Day After
: Twenty years ago tomorrow, The Day After — a TV movie from the time when TV movies mattered — depicted a nuclear holocaust in America. I was a TV critic then and, as I recall, I liked it.

The movie was filmed in Lawrence, Kansas, and so the amazing Lawrence.com remembers the time when TV destroyed the town.

Now this might sound trite but it is true: On September 11th, when I came out of my haven in Chase Plaza II after the first bits of sun broke through the black cloud of debris, I looked around at a world covered in the white dust we all came to know so well and the first image that came to mind was from The Day After.
