Bravo Takes on a New York Staple

On Wednesday, February 16th, Bravo will air The Approval Matrix, a version of New York magazine’s great recurring feature. The 30-minute show will be hosted by Faith Salie, who will lead three panelists and celebrity guests through a discussion of what’s hot or not in the pop culture world for that week.

The Approval Matrix show will also be horrible, because things that are good in one way are very often not good in another. Think about it. Shaq the basketball player was (yes, was) good. Shaq the actor, not so much. The A-team TV show was fantastic, The A-Team movie was garbage.

Anyway, you get the point. But feel free to check the show out, we just wanted to warn you first.
