KTLA Channel 5's coverage of the Rose Parade got higher ratings in Los Angeles (again) than the three big networks combined, says Michael Schneider in Variety. I didn't watch the parade, but an anonymous e-mailer observed unusual tension this year between co-hosts Stephanie Edwards and Bob Eubanks. "She -- politely, in that Stephanie Edwards way -- even told him to shut up in so many words at one point..." Anyone else think so?
A reader emails: "Good to read that someone else shared my own perception. I was a little jolted by what could only be described as testy exchanges between Bob and Stephanie. Can't give you any direct quotes, but believe me, the conversation wasn't always in the duo's jolly, gee-whiz spirit of past years."
