So how about those Lakers? Better yet, what is your opinion on the coverage of the NBA finals? Who provided the best/worst commentary? What do you want to see in future basketball TV coverage? How about what kind of post-championship street riot coverage you'd like to see?
Also - how about the season premiere of "True Blood"? If the HBO series stays true to itself, this will be a great season as indicated by last night's episode. We particularly enjoyed the imaginative flashback scenes of the Sam Merlotte character. Did you watch "True Blood"? What did you think?
Does anyone remember the CBS special "I Get That A Lot" which featured celebrities working menial jobs undercover? According to The Hollywood Reporter, it turns out that April Fool's airing was a huge winner and CBS is now ordering 3 more hours of the special.
