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.

* Oh, and that whole business about the TV critics’ tour being a soon-to-be-extinct dinosaur? Aaron Barnhart and Eric Deggans beg to differ.
