I don't know anything about Miller's politics, because I don't care. But I thought he was an odd choice on Saturday Night Live.  I also recall him not being that great commentating on Monday Night Football. 

I do like most of his movie selections however. It would be interesting to hear his comments.

He's blown every job since SNL, we'll see if he can handle this one.

Well, I for one haven't seen The Big Picture, an early directorial effort from Christopher Guest before he settled into his better-known mockumentary films. I'm intrigued by that, at least. And it looks like a good chunk of the other selections are outside the traditional TCM "library", at least, which I always encourage.

I was just typing this when sewhite2000 replied!  THE BIG PICTURE (1989) may be a premiere.

It's a great little film. Martin Short gives one of his best performances as an agent. I'm looking forward to that. But the others... well... With the exception of "Meets Frankenstein" which I could watch all the time.

Well it is nice to hear opinions from someone in the business-he may have unusual insights in the movie making process.

I much prefer they invite those "in the biz" as hosts & commenters. Pros make it look easy.

These people know how to speak and engage with an audience on camera far better than us "fans", even those of us used to being on TV. Nothing is more cringe-worthy than seeing someone (myself) nervous on camera, you know you're not getting the full impact of what they want to say.

Per MovieCollectorOH's data, The Big Picture is indeed a TCM premiere.  (Fingers crossed for the next 3 weeks. 😉 )

"The Big Picture" marked the memorable film debut of Teri Hatcher (pictured below with Kevin Bacon), years before she became popular for her starring roles on TV's "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" and "Desperate Housewives."
