News: At the Movies Get New Hosts

Source: Ain’t It Cool News

It was just over a year ago when it was announced that Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper ended their involvement with At the Movies and were replaced with Ben Lyons and Ben Mankiewicz.

Well now it is being reported that the two Bens have been fired from the show and they are going to be replaced by the Chicago Tribune’s Michael Phillips and the New York Time’s A.O. Scott, both of whom previously guest-hosted with Roeper when Ebert was sidelined after jaw surgery.

They aren’t Ebert and Roeper themselves, but I respect the critics enough to begin watching the At the Movies reviews again.
