New Yorker Trashes Lifetime
August 8, 2007 1:26 PM
Whew. Sure the folks at Lifetime TV are not too happy about “Women’s Work,” a review of the cable net which appears in the upcoming Aug. 13th issue of The New Yorker. Writer Nancy Franklin doesn’t hold back her dislike for just about everything on the channel, including its new hit series “Army Wives.”
“Yes, I’m hard on Lifetime, but that’s because its failings call attention not to what it has but to what it lacks: balls,” she wrote.
So don’t miss this two-page diatribe. It’s definitely over the edge. But heck, it’s The New Yorker and not Entertainment Weekly.
