PTC Getting Excited About Howard Stern For Nothing


PTC Getting Excited About Howard Stern For Nothing

Why would Fox think it would be a good idea to have Howard Stern act as a judge for next years American Idol? Does he have any musical talent at all? Didn't think so.

Maybe they are thinking that with Simon moving on to his new show they will need someone to help keep the ratings going.

Now, I've stayed quiet on the Stern stuff because the whole notion seemed ridiculous from the outset. Do you think Fox would risk its top-rated family-friendly franchise by putting Stern on the air? Correction: On the air live? And despite his popularity among radio listeners, the man is Kryptonite to TV advertisers -- just ask E!, which used to run his talk show. Fox wants ads from Coca-Cola and Ford, not Valtrex and phone sex lines.

And now we get this

The Parents Television Council has extended its broadcast TV neurosis to a new level: issuing press releases about events that have not happened.

Usually, something actually has to occur on television for the PTC to get upset. Dirty language. Boobies. Etc. Now the PTC is upset about rumors that Fox is considering Howard Stern to judge "American Idol" ... even though Fox hasn't said a word.

“Fox should move immediately to repudiate these rumors and instead commit publicly to keeping ‘American Idol’ safe for family viewing..." blah blah.

At any rate, PTC is demanding Fox clarify its stance on Stern. Here's why the network is probably going to stay silent: There are two institutions no semi-smart media company will comment on. One is Howard Stern, the other is the PTC, and both for the same reason -- they're publicity mongers that will use anything you say to make themselves seem more important.

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full ride to college, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is stuck in a meaningless job and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him.
