  1. Tom Gibney, the longtime news anchor at CFTO TV in Toronto from 1973 to 2007, died today at 84. He was not an actor by any means, but he can be seen (and heard) as the announcer on the fictional Howard Beale Show in Sidney Lumet's 1976 masterpiece NETWORK, starring Peter Finch. NETWORK was mainly produced at CFTO's Toronto studio, as Lumet figured no American TV station would be willing to provide their premises given the content of the movie. Gibney's career spanned the history of TV journalism, from typewriters and film to computers, satellites and live trucks.

  11. December 15 is when the Library of Congress will announce this year's entries to the National Film Registry. Likely, TCM is airing an evening of films that are new to the registry this year, but obviously those films would be under an embargo until the formal announcement.
  12. Sir Sean Connery, the actor who defined James Bond, has died aged 90 Obituary here: https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-13087132
  13. Anyone been seeing this on the schedule this afternoon? Maybe some action is finally being taken on the complaints they have been getting on social media and email (there have been many). I still find it hard to believe that TCM would completely overhaul the website overnight without any user acceptance testing whatsoever -- it's standard practice in my experience to do so.
