Media writers, unite!
We joined George Stephanopoulos for lunch this week to discuss “This Week”‘s upcoming move to the Newseum (first show: April 20).
Of course, we wanted to know what’s going to happen to “This Week”‘s legendary green room (each week, a chef whips up tasty, customized omelettes). Sadly, that won’t make it to the Newseum, but they will have catering that provides scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, fruit, and bagels and lox (no omelettes). With Wolfgang Puck’s “The Source” nearby, good food is never far away (budget willing). (And fear not: Green Room Courtney will still pose for pictures). “This Week”‘s roundtable, however, will be moved to the Newseum studio.
Stephanopoulos said he’s enormously excited for the move, especially for the great view of the U.S. Capitol that the Newseum’s studio provides (the Capitol will be over his left shoulder in the shot).
We asked how this move fits any hopes that “This Week” has to eventually top perennial ratings champ “Meet the Press.”
The hope is this will just give viewers another reason to watch.
Loads more after the jump…
