TV Bites: Fox Introduces the Kilborn File
· It's official: Craig Kilborn is returning to the air with a six-week run of The Kilborn File, to be syndicated on Fox affiliates around the country. The half-hour program will premiere on June 28th in major markets like New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Philadelphia in different time slots, from 6:30 PM to 10 PM. The new show will feature Kilborn's sardonic take on current events, a changing panel of celebrity guests and the "5 Questions" segment he used on Late Late Show. In a press release yesterday, Kilborn said, "Mom, I'm home. The last few years of triathlons and charity work have been fulfilling, but fulfillment is overrated. Let's get it on." Who's ready?
