Ahem. Remember when I was ranting about those three TV movie review shows still on the air these days? Well, they're down to two now because Reel Talk with Jeffrey Lyons and Alison Bailes is, in the words of Anne Thompson, kaput.
Incidentally, this now means that Ben Lyons is now one up on his dad Jeffrey Lyons, because Ben still has his hosting gig -- to the non-amusement of all the serious critics who of course are on the street.
Meanwhile, his dad not only has no show anymore-- he also has no job. Canned at WNBC. Another critic bites the big one. Ouch.
No word yet on that Roeper-Ebert effort they're still cooking up.
