Cancellation of 'Up Late with Alec Baldwin' Puts Viewers Back in 'Lock Up'
With the mutual parting of MSNBC and Alec Baldwin's Friday night show, should the cancellation of "Up Late With Alec Baldwin" be considered a programming failure for MSNBC or just another self-inflicted wound by Baldwin? "Up Late With Alec Baldwin,"was suffering from low ratings and MSNBC seemed to have a hands-off approach in planning and formatting the show. However, the average TV viewer is well aware of Alec Baldwin's "hot head" persona and thus his brand. So why would MSNBC give Baldwin a show, then run for the hills when Baldwin acts like, well, "Alec Baldwin!" MSNBC did know they gave AlecBaldwin a show, right? To be honest, we were a little surprised when Baldwin was given a show. Now we suspect MSNBC will fall back to its lazy programming on Friday nights and send its viewers back to "Lock Up" (which suffers from even lower ratings).
"On The Shoulders of Giants" is a great film to see in light of recent developments in the NBA. The film was written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (also the executive producer) and Anna Waterhouse. The film was released on February 11, 2011.
In Memoriam There are those in the media who are gripping about the "stars" or well know performers who were left out of Oscars 2018 " In Memoriam ". We think the focus was on the behind the scenes people and lesser known performers who also contribute the magic of making movies. Lots of attention was devoted in the media to the passing of Adam West (we went on endlessly in social media about West) as we grew and Glen Campbell , but the award show is being slammed for not including them. We ask, how much attention did the media give to the people who were included?
