    I used to love ET in the old days because it was almost as good as Print Variety in REAL Hollywood news. At some point I don’t recall, it lost me, maybe when LBB took over–Too Splashy–Too much time promoing the next story (I once clocked around 10-12 minutes of real content once, The rest were promos for the story after the break). I still watch for after Emmy/Oscar stories–where Celebrity! news is fine, but the Hypocrisy of stories about anorexia and then the style gurus say “they looked fat in that dress” (in a more polite way, of course), The stories about abuse in Child Pagents and then promoting the shows about them. The stories about out of control PapaNazis and then publishing the very same type of private time photos of celebrities on the street that they buy. Sheesh! Sell the soul of good taste for higher ratings like A Current Affair.
