Frankly, I thought all Dick Cavett did anymore was some nifty voice-over work for ads for the University of Nebraska. You know, the ones that run during nationally televised Husker football games, where at the end somebody in the room inevitably pulls an Iron Eyes Cody and tries to act all sensitive with a crocodile tear down their face. Oh no, Dick Cavett still can give, as Tim Goodman points out. Tim must be having quite a summer. He did a live blog on a recent PBS Special called "Pioneers in Television", and it's actually quite an entertaining read. So in honor of bsmokedturkey's little Nixon post, we're sharing Tim's work on what Cavett still thinks about Tricky Dick. I'm not sure if I can speak for the rest of the boys in the band, but when I think "TV PIONEERS", the name Tony Orlando doesn't come up in my search engine until about the 212th page. Good to know the former lead singer of "Dawn" says Jackie Gleason was difficult.
I guess we're all a lot like Tim Goodman. There's just nothing worth watching short of a Barry Bonds at bat until Curb Your Enthusiasm comes back in September.
