Over the past two years, Thompson, the director of Syracuse University's Center for the Study of Popular Television, has been quoted in the press at least 972 times, more than once a day. It leads you to wonder how any one person could offer expertise on such seemingly unrelated topics as: * The design of aviator sunglasses: "When it comes to nostalgic stuff, there's always a little tweaking" (Thompson quoted by Tacoma News Tribune)

Ripping off a rival TV show has been as common as pigeons on a New York street. But copycatting reality shows has accelerated to such a degree that rival networks now can find themselves showing similar programs at the same time. Last summer, ABC launched The Bachelor, a dating show with one guy picking from 20 women. Earlier this season, Fox launched Joe Millionaire, a dating show with one guy picking from a pool of women. The twist was that the women were told he was filthy rich, when in fact he was a construction worker.

That tune and its unforgettable refrain were played widely for weeks afterward. "The Bravest" became a kind of verbal breakwater for our grief. In just 270 words, it contained the uncontainable. But audiences still aren't ready to embrace films that explicitly depict the tragedy.
