The End Of An Era

| Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers


After 24 seasons of At the Movies, the syndicated review show is coming to an end.

Though we'll admit it was never the same after Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert .

As for the show's distributor, Disney-ABC Domestic TV, they've released the following statement:

After 24 seasons with us in national syndication, the highly regarded movie review show "At the Movies" (formerly known as "Siskel & Ebert" and "Ebert & Roeper") will air its last original broadcast the weekend of August 14, 2010.

This was a very difficult decision, especially considering the program's rich history and iconic status within the entertainment industry, but from a business perspective it became clear this weekly, half-hour, broadcast syndication series was no longer sustainable.

We gratefully acknowledge the outstanding work of the program's current co-hosts A.O. Scott and Michael Phillips and top-notch production staff, and it is with heartfelt appreciation that we extend very special thanks to the two brilliant, visionary and incomparable critics that started it all, Roger Ebert and the late Gene Siskel.

Even Ebert took to his Twitter account to say, "RIP, At the Movies. Memories."

Though if you miss watching Ebert's reviews on TV, you can always check out his comments on his online blog.

Will U miss At the Movies?

    Roger Ebert's blog posts (check the link) consist of some of the most beautiful, profound writing in any medium in this century.
