There has been much discussion over the exit of Ebert and Roeper from At the Movies and Ebert himself finally addressed the matter this morning at Roger Ebert’s Journal.
“I was surprised how depressed I felt all day on July 21, when Richard and I announced we were leaving the Ebert & Roeper program,” he begins. He goes on to talk about how the show began, whose idea Spot the Wonder Dog was, their first appearance on Johnny Carson and his love-hate relationship with Gene Siskel.
He good-humoredly concludes with a couple of oft seen YouTube clips of him and Siskel repeatedly taking the piss out of each other during the filming of some promo spots.
