Ebert, Roeper, and Thumb-Based Film Criticism Returning to TV?


Are you one of those hard-to-please viewers who finds Ben Lyons's trenchant film criticism on the new At the Movies okay, but too ... thumbless? Great news! Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper are apparently plotting a return to television. Responding to a reader-submitted question, Ebert casually slipped this line into today's edition of his weekly Answer Man column: "Another chapter to this saga will begin when Richard and I shortly announce a new movie review program." We're not sure how any of this will work, since Ebert, technically, can no longer speak. Even so, this is the best news we've heard all week.
