    I've seen the first two episodes.
    Definitely worth checking it out, especially if you're a news/newspaper junkie.

    When I was hanging with Leon Carter last March, we talked about this show and he told me there is a sports angle to it, although you know it's going to be lame.
    If my memory serves me right, it's about an intern covering a Liberty game.
    Guess the Yankees AND the Mets were both on the road that day, hmm?

    I'm pretty sure MLB gave zero or very limited permission to Bravo when they wanted to shoot something from the sports side of the paper. I think the film crew was allowed on the field before the game, but not in the press box or locker room. I believe Bravo also wanted to film reporters in their homes or during "down time," though not sure if they got any takers. Not everyone in print wants to be on TV for the sake of being famous for a minute. And not everyone in print wants their personal life on display.
    But I'll still watch it.

    As a former Daily News intern who has covered the Liberty, I resent that.

    For some reason Bravo isn't showing it up here but the Globe TV critic wrote a whole damn column on the show. WTF?

    So you're going to be on TV?
    And I'm sure the Liberty beat has its high points.

    American Bravo and Canadian Bravo aren't the same network, JR.
    You'll have to get DirecTV. ;D

    Thanks. I didn't know that.
    And no, I don't think so. :)
  9. This is a tremendous idea, and using the NYDN and not the Murdoch clown show up the block is the reason why.

    Unfortunately, No.
    And one of the high points is Becky Hammon.

    It's sitting in my DVR and I'm trying to get myself to take the hour to watch.
