​As I reported elsewhere, Chicago Tribune ​film critic Michael Phillips will be hosting TCM's Spotlight on post-war melodrama. Phillips will be a familiar face to many TCM viewers. He previously hosted TCM's September 2013 Spotlight and returned to guest host on Friday and Saturday nights in September 2016.
