I am anxious to see the new season Of GST this week. It looks like a good beginning and it seems that there are no major structure changes to the show FOR ONCE. Although, I have read that the panel will have some sort of change. I just hope that the other segments like "Best Story Ever" and "Something you might not know" return as well.

Has the CNN show finished. At last count, only 9 shows out of 10 have aired. I believe that there is an episode (Osbourne/Penn/Mortimer) that has not aired. I guess what with all the preemptions that it won't. I also don't think it may return next year. Not that I don't think he's great, but what with all the preemptions and the strange reviews, it does not look that good.

The Panel will be more of a round table with a revolving group of regulars and a guest panelist. I have not seen it in action yet.

I don't know any more about the CNN show. It helped the show make connections if nothing else.
