Remakes, Paris Hilton, acts of desperation -- today is the deep dark sludge of TV news.
Today has been a strange day. Not only might there be another halfway decent ABC Family show, but the very fabric of reality TV might be starting to unfurl.
RIP Party Down.
Piers Morgan finally begins his assault on CNN. And world domination, probably.
Damien Echols will appear tonight on Larry King Live -- not in the studio, alas, but evidently the show is sending a camera team to death row, where Echols is still incarcerated.
For those of you not familiar with the case, you can read about it here, but better than that, I'd recommend renting the documentaries, Paradise Lost: The Child Murders At Robin Hood Hills and Paradise Lost 2: Revelations, both of which I believe aired originally on HBO. (You can get either/both from Netflix.) Recently, DNA evidence has come to light that may change the circumstances of all three defendants, so the interview with King could provide some new information for followers of the case.
