If I Didn't Write For This Blog, I'd Still Read It

From IMDB:

Springer Says He Wouldn't Watch His Show

Jerry Springer has admitted that if he weren't hosting his daily talk show, he "wouldn't watch" it. In an interview with the Philadelphia Daily News, Springer remarked, "I get it. I get why it's entertaining. But I'm 64 years old. If I were in college, I would probably like it." Springer made his remarks at West Chester University prior to a lecture on TV's effects on pop culture. His show, he said, has "no redeeming value" and subjects are selected for their "outrageous" potential. "People come on our show to get attention they don't have in their regular lives," he acknowledged.

Hey, aren't we gonna get some sort of 'pre oscar predictions' or are you just deferring to Ebert?

What about all those myspace film producers... there should be an award program for them too -- amateur awards. That'd be fun.
