It’s tough to counter-program against the Super Bowl pregame show.
Then again, C-SPAN2’s audience is a bit different than the CBS’.
Yesterday, the “BookTV” show aired a 3-hour interview with Eric Burns.
The longtime Westport author and media critic talked about his books, including his most recent: The Golden Lad: The Haunting Story of Quentin and Theodore Roosevelt.
Burns and his host took viewers phone calls, and responded to tweets — for 3 hours. That’s a long time — though mere seconds compared to the pregame telecast.
This Thursday, Burns heads to the Savannah Book Festival. On February 25 he’ll be at the Westport Library, discussing his TR opus.
