The controversy surrounding The Birth of a Nation has soured the wild success of what very well could be one of this year’s Oscar contenders. After the news went public that the director and star Nate Parker had been accused of raping a classmate when he was in college at Penn State, but then was acquitted, it was all anyone could talk about in reference to the film. Parker himself has answered questions about it in interviews before and seems very open to discuss the incident, although careful never to admit guilt, and now CBS has posted a preview clip of their 60 Minutes interview with him that will air this weekend.
The sitcom is, and always shall be, an ever-changing art. There exists no perfect formula for success between various three-camera and single-camera efforts over the years. While some may bemoan the heightened situations and laugh tracks of a three-camera outing like the modern 'Big Bang Theory,' others remember how 'Cheers' and 'Seinfeld' among others perfected the format. So according to a recent '60 Minutes' poll, what's the greatest sitcom of all time? Is it as funny as a bag of airline peanuts?
Mike Wallace, the legendary reporter and interviewer for CBS' '60 Minutes,' has died. He was 93 years old.
