“The news” as we know it to be is a very vague term. Which is why there is room for news programs with different formats and subject matters.
Entertainment Tonight has been on the air since 1981. The basic concept of the program is similar to a traditional news program. However, instead of focusing on the days events, Entertainment Tonight, or ET, focuses on the goings on in Hollywood.
This show has been around for nearly 40 years. It obviously it had some legs and a good number of viewers. It wouldn’t be on the air for almost 40 years if it wasn’t getting the ratings that it is. I used to watch it during college, however, I prefer to watch other things these days. Granted, it is an entertainment news program. But, it feels a little mindless and honestly, I would rather watch something else if I could.
Do I recommend it? Not really.
