I Miss This Show
20 January 2002 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

I don't know about anybody else, but I really liked "WIOU." I thought it had a great cast, a good story line, and was quite compelling. If you think about this show and "SportsNight," it's amazing that serious shows about the television business can't seem to make it before the mass audience. Meanwhile, fluff like "Murphy Brown" and "Mary Tyler Moore" hit it big time. I'm just happy to see that so many of the cast of WIOU have had long and distinguished careers. I hope to find this program on TV Land sometime soon.
