Steve says: We all know how successful Jeff Zucker was at NBC now he's apparently looking to do the same to CNN. (see story below) Really if you take news, especially hard news off CNN what's left? If I want entertainment news I'll go with Joel McHale and E network every time. I'm old enough to remember when CNN started and was fortunate enough to be able to provide them content from the TV station where I was working.

This one's on E and it's called #RichKids of Beverly Hills. That's really the name with the hash tag and "RichKids" as one word. It's described as "exploring the lives of a clique of children". Here's one clique I don't want to spend one mintue watching. And don't you think it should be "exploiting" not "exploring"? It premiers on Janauary 19 at 10PM.
