Say goodbye to Roger Ebert‘s rebooted At The Movies. The movie review show is in danger of cancellation at the end of this season. When Ebert revived the program, he did so by paying out of pocket. Ebert explains on his blog that he and his wife footed all the bills. “We paid for the pilot. We paid for the titles. We paid for the set, the lighting, and all of the salaries … lunch on taping days, everything.”

That’s not to say that the program is officially dead in the water. There’s a chance it could remain on the air if the program finds an underwriter with deep enough pockets. Let’s just go ahead and cross Bam Margera off the list of potentials. (Ebert’s Blog)

Movie reviews won’t be the only thing Roger Ebert will be premiering on his New PBS show Ebert Presents at the Movies. The Legendary critic, who lost his lower jaw to thyroid cancer in 2006, will be showing off his new facial prosthesis on his new public television program. A rather convincing prosthetic will cover the entire area, and will restore Ebert‘s appearance to something far closer to it’s original appearance. Prior to the prosthesis, Ebert has said he “studiously avoided looking … in a mirror,” although hopefully now he can be proud to show off his new look while ripping the worst movies of the week brand new a-holes. Welcome back, Roger. We missed you! (Vulture)

Roger Ebert‘s “At The Movies” redux doesn’t launch until next Friday, but that’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy the opening twenty-two seconds now. It really whets my appetite for watching him get all robo-bitchy toward The Dilemma. (Ebert’s Blog)

We miss you, Gene.

Film critic Roger Ebert has chosen his co-hosts for the revamped version of “At the Movies,” the groundbreaking television show he previously helmed with the late Gene Siskel. Christy Lemire, a well known critic for the AP, and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, a contributor for Mubi.com, will both assist Ebert with his weekly movie rundown. Several others, including CBS’s Jeff Greenfield and The Hitlists’ Kim Morgan, will also contribute to the show, while ScreenJunkies’ own Wookie Johnson will leave offensive comments on the show’s website.

Roger Ebert Revives ‘At The Movies’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/roger-ebert-revives-at-the-movies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/roger-ebert-revives-at-the-movies/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Roger Ebert isn't one to let a lack of a jaw stop him from jawing on about what movies do and don't suck ass. With "At The Movies" officially off-the-air as of August 14th, Ebert has unveiled his newest program, "Roger Ebert Presents 'At The Movies'." It's pretty much "At The Movies" but with occasional appearances from the Roger Ebert Cyborg. Appearing as the show's main critics are Christy Lemire and Elvis Mitchell. And if Ebert's sagging chin flesh pouch and Elvis's dreadlocks don't do it for you, Kim Morgan will also appear in weekly segments. It'll be like when the hot weather girl shows up on that fat guy's show on Telemundo. (Sun Times)
