Discovery’s Henry Schleif wishes he included stories ‘influential on society today’

murder time on television

Henry Schleif runs Discovery ChannelTravel Channel, Crime Channel and other channels So – the question is – why does TV do so many police shows?

Schleiff: “True crime is high stakes, life and death, the bad guy to be caught. Fascinating, engaging, compelling stories. Add a catchy ‘Wives with Knives’ or ‘Southern Fried Homicide’ interesting title. A compelling host and clever addition to the thread Marketing perspective is involved.

“It is the front page of a newspaper. CourtTV’s attraction was OJ, JonBenet, the Menendez brothers. It is not difficult for viewers to watch this material endlessly.

“You may hate OJ personally but guilt drives passion. It skewers more women 25 than 54 because of their instincts.

“There is occasional dissatisfaction with our coverage but we show respect to the victims and, with sensitivity, ask those close to us to allow us into their families.

“Hopefully, today’s technology and forensics will eventually lead to the unsolved case of JonBenet and whoever is responsible for his death.

“My regret is doing wasteful stories that are influential on society today – like domestic abuse. And 400 mass shootings this year.

“You can’t drive a tank down the road. Not allowed. It’s military equipment. Why isn’t a shoulder missile launcher also classified as permitted military equipment? Want to use it? Join the military. That’s it. Don’t let anyone enter a store or school with it and kill kids, people, whatever moves.


It’s prime time for ‘murder’

Considering the catastrophe of the murder, Hulu got Martin Short’s “Only Murders in the Building”. It’s shooting/killing them, lying about how they die and getting knocked over in their Upper West Side upper high-class upper type lift. , , Also John Lithgow’s “Dexter” returns again, where the good John is not a good killer.

Plus, we got a corpse of tales of police corruption, international intrigue, murder, spies, stab ’em grabs and just plain old slash and murderer for us to watch before bedtime. Q: What could be better for our children?


Finding ‘Beast’ Mode

hometown hit

Tomorrow for Tony Bennett’s 96th birthday, singers Larry and Amanda Meyers take their “Tony and the Lady” revue to Vegas, New York, and on the street. An uptick in history to keep their music, memory and Gaga duets alive. , , And apologies to coworker Steve Cuozzo, who started eating out while still in utero I just visited in an Italian restaurant. Preferred Chase Palminary on West 46th and Dew on Third Avenue and East 79th. just sayin’.

Only in New York, children, only in New York.
