TelevisionWeek's new blog by World Poker Tour boss Steven Lipscomb marks this publication's second blog by a member of the television industry. As the founder of WPT, Steve often is credited with starting the televised poker boom. He's also known to say a controversial thing or two.

Just as Rich Goldfarb, senior VP of sales for National Geographic Channel, offered candid insight into the upfront advertising selling period, Steve plans to pull no punches in discussing the people, practices and pitfalls of the television business.

And remember: TVWeek.com encourages you to respond to what you read here. So feel free to post comments on Steve's blog.

Okay, Bad Blogger!!

Waaaay too long since I checked into the blog. I was particularly reminded of the absence this week as one of my dear friends in Paris, the Aviation Club’s own Bruna Fitussi, told me that he had been reading the blog — and that my English was a pain in the ass to read.

All feedback welcome. Even the tough love kind.

I am back on a plane tomorrow (which is when I usually get a chance to reflect). I will take time to get back on track. Thank you to the TVWeek guys for not giving up on me.

And, how about that election!!

Just talked to my very reliable conservative source who is scared about losing both the House and the Senate …

What a difference a few months can make …
