Anyway, it's more than worthy if you like the subject matter. I'm also going to check out the documentary when it airs.
Tara Bennett has 'caught' this world at its best - and the not-so-best parts Hart Hanson said it best "...running an American show is like sex...no matter how much you ask around or how many courses you attend there's no real preparation for the real thing."
Kudos to Ms Bennett for such an excellent read, and to all the people who's hard work makes sure we are entertained week after week. (And for providing us 'talent' with work! - if not for them...) 5 Thumbs up!
