With changes, there's a new lease on Glass' `Life'

Entertainment Television

On radio, This American Life is a treasure - a brilliantly conceived form of quirky, true-life storytelling that has spawned a host of imitators and stands with the finest work the medium has delivered.

But on TV last year, not so brilliant. While the first season on Showtime was promising, mistakes were made - even host and executive producer Ira Glass says so.

Information This American Life begins its second season at 10 p.m. Sunday on Showtime. Tonight's live event starts at 8. For ticket information, contact Bel Air Cinema Stadium 14 at 410-569-8276 or Snowden Square Stadium 14 at 410-872-0670, or go to fathomevents.com.
