Among the news nuggets to emerge from yesterday’s TV critics’ press tour:
* If American broadcasters can’t keep Ted Koppel sufficiently occupied, what to do? Become a special correspondent for BBC America. (In the meantime, Koppel’s Discovery documentary on China, The People’s Republic of Capitalism, left, begins tonight.)
* But enough about living news legends. Bring on the naked teens and dinosaurs!
* African-American-focused channel TV One, stunningly, plans on spending a bit more time covering the Democratic convention this year.
* Style Channel joins forces with a massively obese woman.
