So "likely" would seem to be the word. Last we heard, the »
Stupid For Movies is a weekly live streamed web show airing on Ustream every Thursday at 8 Pm Pdt. Created by Mike Rotman (Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show, Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher), the show is hosted by La Film critics Mark Keizer and Wade Major (IGN's The Digigods). Each week Keizer and Major discuss the best and worst in movies, including reviewing the latest movies to hit the theater, recommending DVDs to “Buy, Rent or Burn”, and talk news with special anchor Chad Vader. Rotman was kind enough to invite myself and my photographer (Aka: boyfriend), Stuart, down to the Streamin’ Garage studio, named for the fact that it literally is a converted garage, to view an episode taping. Though the show does run live, episodes of the show are then converted and uploaded to blip.tv (a job Rotman does himself, a bit of which we witnessed as we »

Web TV network Revision3 issued an open offer letter to NBC's The Tonight Show host Conan O'Brien to take his show online. After the embattled late night star rejected a proposal from NBC to move the show to another time slot, there are talks of a separation agreement, in the $30-40 million range, letting O'Brien leave the peacock network as Jay Leno prepares to take back over the 11:30 Pm time slot.
