The Hollywood Reporter Lands TV Critic Tim Goodman

Wow, just after we got done bashing The Hollywood Reporter for their new website, they go out and land some great new talent. THR just announced they picked up San Francisco Chronicle TV critic Tim Goodman as their new Chief Television Critic–a huge score in our book. Goodman is routine guest on ESPN blogger Bill Simmons‘ wildly popular podcast and has made a name for himself by creating a TV “power ranking” system, much like sports reporters use for baseball and football teams.

Aside from penning reviews, Goodman will also launch a new blog that will serve as a companion feed to the Live Feed TV blog. We’re excited to see what he can do here in LA.
