David Bianculli, James Best and The Best of TV CONFIDENTIAL

Catch replays of our conversations with David Bianculli and James Best on a special "Best of" edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, premiering Monday, Nov. 22 at 9pm ET, 6pm PT on Shokus Internet Radio, with encore presentations Tuesday, Nov. 23 at 11:05pm ET, 8:05pm on PIV World Radio, Friday, Nov. 26 at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio,, plus three times a day on through Sunday, Nov. 28.

The first hour will feature an encore presentation of our May 2010 interview with television critic David Bianculli (Fresh Air) on the legacy of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, its impact on prime time television in the late 1960s and how Tom and Dick's battles with CBS executives over censorship issues led to the abrupt end of the program in April 1969. David is the author of Dangerously Funny, a comprehensive look at the careers of Tom and Dick Smothers and the legacy of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

In our second hour, we'll replay our May 2010 conversation with actor and author James Best (The Dukes of Hazzard), whose book, Best in Hollywood: The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful, is filled with great stories about his work with such motion picture legends as Burt Reynolds, his experience teaching young actors camera technique in Hollywood and at the University of Mississippi, his early days as a contract player at Universal Studios and, of course, his years playing Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane on The Dukes of Hazzard.
