Entertainment Tonight, in syndication
ET Online; IMDb; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

An entertainment newsmagazine show, which started in 1981, and is still going (as of 2012). However, it never aired in my area until... oh, I don't remember. Sometime in the 90s, I reckon. And now I'm not really sure if it still airs on any local channel, though I could probably find it on TV somewhere, if I really tried. But I haven't watched it in years. At some point, it became more of an entertainment tabloid than an entertainment news show, which doesn't really appeal to me. Anyway... the original host was Mary Hart (who we like). And when I first started watching, John Tesh was her cohost. Over the years there have been tons of hosts and correspondents. I suppose I saw Bob Goen for awhile, and Leeza Gibbons (who we like), and film critic Leonard Maltin, and probably some others. Though the majority of people who've been on the show were either before or after my time.

Anyway... I can't really think of anything else to say. Except I remember one time... it must have been either the tenth or fifteenth anniversary of E.T., that the show aired a clip made by the cast of Murphy Brown (as their characters, the cast of "FYI") wishing the show a happy anniversary. (Or maybe it was "happy birthday," I forget.) It was funny. I wish I could find it on YouTube or something. Sigh. Oh well.
