I used to watch this as a little boy with my uncle every night at 7:30PM or 8:00 PM? I remember john tesh and mary Heart. I loved the show as its a good source of nostalgia.

    I don\'t like how \"Entertainment Tonight\" now shares an hour with \"The Insider\". I don\'t like how the two programs share credits. I really enjoyed this show when I was younger...It\'s just too bad that they had to compact it. I only watch this show when I\'m gearing up the VCR for AFI\'s annual \"100 Years...\" special.

      It\'s hard to believe how much ET has changed in the close to 30 years it\'s been on the air! The original intro seems to fashion it like a local arts and entertainment program, however now every night it\'s about these... media circus events.
