Time Runs Out for "Ebert & Roeper"

In a rapid-fire end-of-an-era double-announcement, Richard Roeper and Roger Ebert are severering ties with their review show At the Movies. I always enjoyed Ebert (particularly in the old days) and I was fine with Roeper (he did have some of that old Gene Siskel man about town quality about him to temper uberintellectual Ebert). But it seemed as if a change was in the air anyway. I bet Roeper will be on the first plane to Los Angeles for some project or another (he apparently has another show lined up already).

Here are links to articles about the two departures:
