For me, David Bianculli on "Best TV Tomorrow" was TV Worth Watching.

That could be at the same time the best send in that in reality preferred examining. It's actually not every single day that many of us support the chance to figure out the very first thing.

Welcome to our little community Aver! YOu're a little late, David used to post daily "blogs" of which shows he recommended we watch, or NOT watch (hahaha). For some reason he decided to stop updating this site, although you can still hear his recommendations on Fresh Air from time to time.

The rest of us loyal followers stay here hoping that someday David comes back. If you're so moved, please sign our petition!
