Survivor Special

Sep 23, 2019

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. Even though everyone in the home office was busy with assignments we were lucky enough to have guest correspondent Trey Johnson cover the Heroes & Villains and Walker Stalker FanFest in Chicago. He got interviews with all ranges of people from stars, authors, artists and of course the COSPLAYERS! Enjoy!

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.

An upcoming film about the late author and former Illinois State University professor David Foster Wallace opted not to film in the Bloomington-Normal area and instead chose Michigan, reportedly for the state’s more generous tax breaks.

Robots from space attacked Chicago, blowing up buildings and vaporizing residents as they ran through the streets. A mad villain flipped a semi-trailer end over end and blew up a hospital. Two blues men drove through a suburban mall, crashed into the lobby of the Richard J. Daley Center and caused a pileup of police cruisers while tearing around the city on a holy mission.

"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.
