ET (and its even worse sibling The Insider) completely turned into fetid rotting garbage about the time they started covering Anna Nichole Smith's Son's death. ET put that slimeball Mark Steines on as an anchor, and the show turned into a circus where they'd go into every story with a sleazy quid pro quo with the subjects to show them in the best light (aka "give their inside story") in return for exclusive access, with piles of cash sealing the deal.Originally Posted by Elainesc5;3741632;
I remember watching ET as a kid and kind of liking it. These days? It's agony.
