Twentieth Television has added three more stations to air its upcoming revival of first-run newsmagazine A Current Affair. The program will remain focused on entertainment, gossip and crime-related stories and be hosted by Fox Sports commentator and former NFL star defensive-end Tim Green.
I don’t have a clue who Green is and I don’t care. When I was a kid I didn’t want to direct dramas – I wanted to direct dramatizations! I loved the violent, dirty-sex, static-y, quick-cut style Affair took with any topic. I still remember the Chappaquidick expose. I loved – LOVED – tabloid television.
And I secretly wanted to hear Connie Chung berate Maury Povich when he came home from work. Can’t you just see her throwing the remote at his face and screaming What the hell was that?!
