Roeper to continue show…

I hope that Ebert can join him and that he passes the “Thumb” thing along with him.


Roeper To Revive Movie Review Show
2 September 2008 10:38 AM, PDT

Chicago Sun-Times critic Richard Roeper has told Broadcasting and Cable magazine that he plans to announce shortly that he will be reviving the movie review show that he hosted with colleague Roger Ebert for Disney’s Buena Vista Productions. “There’s room in the marketplace for a continuation of the most successful and the longest-running movie-review show in TV history: the show that was Siskel & Ebert, and then became Ebert & Roeper some eight years ago,” he told the trade publication. He said that it remains to be seen whether Ebert will contribute to the show — he is presently unable to speak as a result of complications from surgery — or allow his copyrighted “thumbs up/thumbs down” critical designation to be used on the show.

It would be nice to see this somewhere else, possibly on iTunes or even on another station or something. Its just wrong that it has been done away with.
