Mel Brooks Handicaps Upcoming PBS Special

Here’s a fun challenge for DVR manufacturers. How can a future machine be set to truncate a program that “is about 73% really good and the rest… in the crapper”?

That assessment comes from the person at the center of the May 20 episode of PBS’ American MastersMel Brooks. And when you consider the Woody Allen-worthy jazz soundtrack coursing through the promo below, it may also be time for The Woodman to cast Brooks in a movie. Before it’s too late, for either or both of of these Your Show of Shows alums.
