Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So, how many ways can you say goodbye?
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky calls that a key question these days with Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien finally saying final farewells, leaving even their most loyal sympathizers wishing they would get on with it.
However, Sokolsky wonders, will this eventually lead to a new category for the Emmy awards?
Might be interesting, he says, especially since so many shows appear to have saved some of their best work for their last outings.
Sokolsky says the clear winner would have to be the Bob Newhart finale that blended his two sitcoms…
Also named as contenders -- the Mary Tyler Moore group hug and Johnny Carson's 1950s variety show, ending with his giving his studio audience everything from cue cards to a producer.
