Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
A disagreement involving Fox and several cable systems almost led to a pulling of network programming earlier this month and could have resulted in the Sugar Bowl game not being televised.
Cooler heads prevailed and things went on as scheduled. However, Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says this issue could come up again, and with different results.
But, he adds, such disputes are simply among a whole list of other things viewers may be noticing the rest of this year.
Reality shows will remain in abundance with the major figures being the judges rather than the contestants. Police shows will focus more on the officers' problems and its "tough guys" are most likely to be women.
And we can look for more ghost and vampires. And yes, Sokolsky says, that does seem creepy. But what can we expect of a year that opens with networks threatening to pull the plug on post-season football games?
