Roger Ebert debuts new TV show

Roger Ebert new tv show 2011

Influential U.S. film critic Roger Ebert will debut his new television show across the United States in January, in a return to TV after a long battle and recovery from thyroid cancer.

The Pulitzer-prize winning Chicago Sun-Times critic, who lost his ability speak four years ago after surgery to treat his cancer, said "Roger Ebert presents At the Movies," will play in 192 markets in major U.S. cities and be broadcast worldwide through the Armed Forces Network in 175 countries.

Contributing critics for the show will use the trademark thumbs up or thumbs down rating system Ebert created with late film critic Gene Siskel, who died of brain cancer in 1999. Ebert said he will contribute regular segments of his own on the show.
