    over the last few months the show has lost celebrity guest hosts and critics to only leonard maltin and a woman reviewer, with todd newton as the moderator. i can't remember the lady's name, but i never saw her before this show.
    as of this week it seems to have dropped newton and only has the lady and maltin giving either a hot or a not for movies.
    ok it's not an exact clone because they do have some actor guest clips taliknig about their movie.
    i thiught the first version of the show was better with usually 2 or 3 guests discussing the movies.

    Yeah, the show was better when they had a guest panal on every week. But I have to say that I never really cared for Todd "cool dude" Newton.
    If it stays like this, it won't last very long.

    I think Newton quit the show because he is set to do the new version of Press Your Luck on the Game Show Network.

    This show was horrible from the get go. I saw the first couple of episodes and I just couldn't believe Maltin agreed to do this (even though he is a creampuff of a critic). I hope for his sake the show is canceled.

    I believe I heard it has been picked up for a 2nd season. I watched a couple episodes earlier in the season when they still had the celebrity guests, and I didn't care for it too much. If they added Jay Sherman to the show instead of that other lady (who I caught while flipping through the channels last week), I'd watch for sure. [​IMG]
