Aaron Barnhart's "Tasteland"


TV critic Aaron Barnhart joined me on WHAS/Louisville today to talk about his book, "Tasteland," in which he reviews the last decade-and-a-half in television via the columns he's written for the Kansas City Star and his website, TVBarn.com. Among the topics we covered:
  • whether the current roster of shows qualifies as a Golden Age Of Television;
  • how on-demand viewing has changed what we watch;
  • whether Jay Leno can resume his position as a late-night leader when he returns to "The Tonight Show" this evening;
  • whether NBC's horrible new show, "The Marriage Ref," would be on the air if Jerry Seinfeld weren't its producer
  • the rumor that CBS is talking to Anderson Cooper about replacing Katie Couric in the anchor chair
