I LIKE how they think!!

How radical would THAT be...put a non-magazine-format news show on a major network in prime time?? And one they're already paying for anyway?? You'd think that would be a great money saver, and who knows...people might actually WATCH!

OK, who else read deeper into the article and went to the site with the The Sound of Music drinking game??

I think they should give it a try, after the first of the year. :-k

They should Simulcast 'Countdown' on NBC for two weeks just to see how it does. [smilie=pdt_piratz_20.gif]
