I haven't been blogging, and our new project, "The Week," disappeared after just two weeks. What gives?
In this case, a picture will suffice:
We'll be back with new shows later in the month.

You may remember that Jeff was recently offered a shot at being on TV. Well, it looks like he's not the only public radio figure being courted by the networks! Car Talk goes visual with a new cartoon on PBS this July.
I have to wonder though, after This American Life the TV show and now Car Talk, are we seeing a trend here? Are TV stations coveting the longevity and loyalty public radio shows are capable of? And if so, what will be the next NPR mainstay to go visual? A teen drama set in Lake Wobegon called Garrison's Creek? Maybe Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me could morph into Are You Smarter Than a Celebrity Comedian? Or how about Fresh Air with Muppets? I'd watch that.
