20 years later, Entertainment Tonight remains THE #1 source for entertainment news and features--even if we have major competition with "E! News Daily" (which I also like) and "Access Hollywood"! And it has joined the ranks of "Wheel of Fortune", "Jeopardy!", and now "Judge Judy" to become one of the most popular and successful syndicated shows ever, seen around the world in countless countries.

I've been a longtime viewer of ET since the mid-'80s and every year, the show has been getting better and better with their "Cover Stories", one-on-one celebrity interviews from Julie Moran and Jann Carl, the "ET Insider", and of course, their wall-to-wall coverage of the Emmys, Golden Globes, Grammys, and Oscars. And Mary Hart may be reaching her 50's, but she is still a stunner.

You may call it "tabloidy", you may call it "too gossipy", but "Entertainment Tonight" is still the best entertainment news and information show there is, was, and ever will be!
