Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
All right. They've covered the Winter Olympics. So what does NBC do now? And where does it go from here?
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says that question particularly applies to the week nigh 10 p.m. hour where that comic held on for a few months -- and what ever happened to him?
For the moment three repeat series are filling the time slot. So are two comedies. One of them, "Parenthood," marks yet another attempt to adapt a decent 1980s film. For now, though, Sokolsky says, it seems to be influenced by ABC's "Brothers and Sisters."
The other series is "The Marriage Ref" featuring celebrities advising married couples on such problems as dealing with a dead pet the wife never liked.
But Sokolsky says there may be more here than is currently meeting the camera. For example, did that shadow on the set belong to Dr. Phil? And is he actually scouting the minor leagues to obtain future call-ups to his show?
