THE 2000s: "THE PLATINUM AGE OF TELEVISION"
December 30, 2018  | By David Bianculli

CNN, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

I mentioned yesterday that CNN was ending the year by repeating its most recent TV-centric installments of its ongoing documentary series devoted to each decade since, and starting with, The Sixties. Tonight at 8 ET, CNN repeats the lead-off two-hour episode of The 2000s, with a title it borrowed, with my blessing, from the title of my recent book: “The Platinum Age of Television.” I’m interviewed on camera, briefly, but recommend this program regardless. And since the year 2019 literally begins in a few days, it won’t be long – a year so two, tops – before the producers of this series gets to work on The 2010s, or The Tens, or whatever they decide to call the next entry. I hope to keep my streak going by participating in that one, too, but I never take anything for granted. Especially the future…
