Knowing that this week was Michael Ausiello’s inaugural column in Entertainment Weekly Magazine and being somewhat of an Ausiello aficionado, it should come as no surprise to readers of theTVaddict.com that this TV Addict took some time on what has turned out to be a surprising beautiful Friday afternoon to pop into my local Indigo Bookstore [Canada’s Barnes & Noble] in order to get a first look at the new issue of Entertainment Weekly — that won’t arrive in my mailbox until Monday at the earliest because Canada Post has their head… well that’s another rant for another day.
Needless to say, imagine my disappointment when I discovered that the much—anticipated column from Michael Ausiello turned out to be nothing more than a condensed version of the scoop that he already posted on EW.com days earlier, alongside a few ‘Burning Questions’ that he [you guessed it] already answered!
As a self proclaimed TV Addict I’m used to summer reruns on television. But in magazines? Talk about your disappointment weekly.
Which brings me to my burning question. If Entertainment Weekly is simply going to rerun its online content in its magazine a week later, why exactly am I spending my hard earned money on a subscription?
