NOW has few sponsors
Anyone watch NOW without bill Moyers last night?

They have cut the show to 1/2 hour and replaced the second half hour with the WSJ Editorial Board, which is like replacing a porsche with a handful of oily wingnuts.

I noticed that NOW without Bill has only one sponsor. Anyone know what's up with that?

1. NOW proudly proclaims that they have only had one sponsor
...since the show's inception--That insurance company.
Cutting it to 1/2 hour sounds dreadful. At least your station is not following it with pinhead Tucker Carlson's show.

3. Discovery and the History Channel have nothing good on...
...so I channel surf and end up on news programs or Cspan. I find those to be dreadful and without insight, so I turn off the tv. It's just another day.

5. It was a good half hour, but I'm still disappointed.
