What's On Tonight: Fade to Black

Taps for Elissa Bass's TV column on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012

What’s On Tonight: Fade To Black

Dear TV Friends: Today is the last edition of ‘What’s On Tonight.’ I first started writing a TV column for The Day newspaper in 2001, when I was named features editor at the paper and we launched a daily TV page. Back then it was called 'The Remote,' and I had the best time ever writing it. When I left The Day in 2010 and came to Patch, I kept it going, renamed 'What’s On Tonight.' Eleven years of a daily TV column = 4,015 columns. 4,015 x 3 shows per column = 12,045 shows. My love of TV runs deep. The fun I had — and the friends I made — have been by far the most rewarding parts; if I got to watch some great TV along the way, well that was just gravy. Thank you to all who have read this little piece over the years. It’s been a blast.

We had so much fun over the years, didn't we! As Crash Davis once said, 'When you speak of me, speak well.'

Good luck to you in your future endeavors, Elissa. I was so happy to see you on the Patch after missing your fun articles in The Day. Maybe I'll see you somewhere else in the future. You'll definitely be missed! Marianne Morgan

Thanks Marianne! I am staying with Patch, just moving on from writing about TV. You'll still be able to find me! Take care, Elissa

Glad to hear you are staying with Patch. I will miss your insite into TV programs especially The Amazing Race. Everytime I see Phil lift his eyebrow I think of you. Good luck to you I look forward to following you.

Thanks gail! We'll always have Budapest, and that spicy Hungarian stew/puke.
