Yet another TV columnist/critic for a major newspaper has been let go. Like Ed Bark in Texas and David Bianculli of NYC before him, Doug Elfman of the Chicago Sun-Times is a victim of the staff layoffs at that paper.

It's probably just as well if the networks get rid of their upfronts altogether since pretty soon there won't be any more TV critics to cover the stories. Instead of a variety of opinions, angles, and voices, we'll be reduced to just getting press releases spoon-fed to us about upcoming shows.

A good example of why the latest season of 'The Wire' is so timely.....
