Letters to Calendar: The good, the bad, and everything else from the Oscar telecast

The good, the bad, the Oscar telecast

After the debacle of the Academy Awards ["Broadcast Did More Than Hand Out Gold Statues," Feb. 29], I'd like to suggest that the other networks and major cable stations stop showing reruns against the telecast because they're afraid no one will watch. Please, bring out your newest, best, brightest episodes and give the TV audience some real entertainment to enjoy — no need to be frightened of big ratings for the Oscars anymore.

Thanks for trying, Chris Rock, but I'm convinced a song-and-dance person who can tell a few jokes is a better fit as host. Ever watch the Tony...
