Stop Me Before I Kill Again...
Hollywood Grave Robbers Gone Wild!
For anyone who follows the world of television – whether from inside the Hollywood machine or simply as a viewer – Tim Goodman (of the San Francisco Chronicle) is always worth reading. In a column this week, Tim wields his pointed wit to dissect the disturbing, disheartening, and utterly brain-dead trend towards remakes on broadcast television.
And guess who's leading the charge to exhume and reanimate the past? That's right, Jeff Zucker -- as current captain of the Titanic, er, NBC, a one-man wrecking crew and poster-child for Really Bad Ideas in television programming. The man is a living, breathing example of the Peter Principle in action.
Seriously -- his idea of a creating fresh new show to capture the imagination of America is to remake "The Rockford Files."
Unbelievable. What a maroon...
