As Survivor embarks on its 39th season this week, Front Row hosts and resident super-fans Lou Hare and Brandon Davis discuss their history with the reality TV juggernaut and what they're looking forward to in Season 39.

It's never a dull time at the Network when con season comes around.

When you think of how iconic the Carol Burnett Show was, one of the key parts of that success was the impeccable physical and improv comedy of one Mr. Tim Conway. Consistently on a vendetta to make his fellow actors crack, Conway was a master at reading the audience and taking them exactly where he wanted them to go. His comedic genius will be insanely missed in this world. Our Brandon Davis remembers him.

"When two elephants fight, it is the grass that gets trampled." 

 African proverb

In the legislative battle now under way between two heavyweight industries — the telephone companies and the cable television providers — what's at risk of getting trampled is the public interest.
