  • With all due respect to the Paiey Center; I believe that the annual Paley Festival is one of the highlights that such an organization can put together each year. However, there dosen't seem to have enough vintage programs--ones that have let the American airwaves twently years and longer! Many of the people in front on the camera and behind are slowly dying off! Their voices and the shows behind them still hold highly to those that respect them. How about saluting some programs that were wonderful in their day but forgotten now, such as Pip the Piper, The Dinah Shore Chevy Showroom, The Good Guys, or even Sing Aong With Mitch??

    Perhaps some of those that were part of the above titles may already be deceased, but at least I'll show up to watch 'em again!!

  • Yes, I do watch several of these shows (like Hot in Cleveland) and I enjoy them. And I'm sure that True Blood is being 'honored' again because it's a guaranteed sell-out crowd.

    But what about other very popular current shows, like Castle, that have a big following for the show itself and hundreds more fans who would come just to see Nathan Fillion because of Firefly?

    Another show conspicuous by its absence is the new Hawaii 5-0, although that could have been b/c of scheduling issues. 5-0 itself has big ratings and the four leads each have a core fan following. If Orci and Kurtzman showed up, too, then that would be icing on the cake. Maybe not a sell-out crowd, but sure to bring more people in than something like Community.

  • Mostly crap shows. Why do they do the same shows all the time? You think they could have a better variety.

  • "Glee" - 2 years in a row
    "Community" - 2 years in a row
    "True Blood" - Done in 2009 and 2011
    "Supernatural" - Done in 2006 and 2011
    "American Idol" - Done before

    Can't they come up with something new?  The festival has become a marketing tool for some producers rather than honoring the best from old and new TV. 

    They are only doing one night honoring shows that are no longer on the air ("Freaks & Geeks/Undeclared").  Yet they already had an evening honoring Judd Apatow just a few years ago.  So even the one retrospective evening is somewhat of a do-over from a few years ago.
