PBS Press Tour

Today was one of my favorite events of the year, THE PBS PRESS TOUR.
I love it. I get to see all the new shows coming to PBS, and all my favorite PBS celebrities. That's right, though I would never think of asking George Clooney to stop and take a picture with me, I can't help myself and accost Henry Louis Gates,Jr. and tell him I love him at the PBS press tour.
PBS has this power over me. I blame it on Seasame Street and Electric Company. They hooked me when I was young and I didn't know what I was getting into. Now they've got me strung out on Nova, Antique Road Show, Masterpiece:classic and regular, Frontline, and lets face it anything Ken Burns.
I'll be posting upcoming shows as their air dates come up. I believe the first one is Henry Louis Gates, Jr.'s Faces in America. This time he tracks the lineage of various celebrities including Kristi Yamaguchi, Yoyo Ma, Dr. Oz, Eva Longoria, and several others. It air Wednesdays Febuary 10th- March 3.

Thanks for the heads up on Gate's new show. I loved his last one and look forward to seeing more.

Loved the last two columns. I'm interested in the fab boys now, and I don't know if I'd have given it a look if you hadn't gushed about it. Really looking forward to the Faces sequel; the last one was fascinating!
