AFI LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD: A SALUTE TO MEL BROOKS
July 24, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

TCM begins tonight’s all-night salute to Mel Brooks, fittingly, with A Salute to Mel Brooks, a repeat of the entertaining AFI Life Achievement Award special televised last month by sister network TNT. But here, the festivities are presented uninterrupted by commercials, and in a longer, uncut version. And that’s just the start of a Brooks lineup so good that, for the first time in the history of TV Worth Watching, every entry of today’s Bianculli’s Best Bets will be devoted to a single artist network. Thanks for all the laughs, Mel!
