TV The Alan Partridge programmes are finally being shown in US:
"(Steve) Coogan finally makes his American television debut this spring in The Alan Partridge Experience, a compendium of three short series shown in the U.K. between 1995 and 2002. Taken together, these 19 episodes trace the hilarious downward spiral of a second-rate talk show host. His abject failure on his prime-time program Knowing Me, Knowing You With Alan Partridge turns into even more palpable humiliation on the two later series, when our hero returns to his provincial hometown with his tail between his pasty legs. Dumped by his wife and living alone in a generic businessman's "travel tavern," he DJs at the local radio station, trying to tempt listeners to stay tuned with promises like "In three minutes' time I'll be talking to Norwich's youngest butcher."
At least it's not The Tony Ferrino Phenomenon ...
