Station Breaks: John Miller Joins CBS, Bones Returns and Suburgatory is Okay

John Miller, who long ago was a local reporter for Channel 4 (WNBC-TV) here in New York and who also served as Deputy Police Commissioner for Public Information, has been named a Senior Correspondent for CBS News.  He’ll report primarily for The Early Show, but also for other CBS News broadcasts, including 60 Minutes.

Miller was most recently Deputy Director of the Analysis Division for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, working across such agencies as the CIA, NSA and FBI.

Also a former ABC correspondent, Miller is a true investigative reporter who has countless contacts in government and law enforcement.  He is perhaps best known for his 1998 on-camera interview with Osama bin Laden.

In other news, Bones with David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, returns to FOX on Thursday, November 3rd at 9 p.m.

A new FOX show, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, premieres on Wednesday, November 30th.

Finally, I finally got around to watching Suburgatory on ABC and it wasn’t half bad, particularly the story line that revolves around the teenagers.  In the show, single father George Altman moves to the suburbs with his daughter, Tessa, to escape the fast city life.  But, what he finds in suburbia is more surprising than anything either character encountered back in the city.  As a single father, George is a fish out of water among the over-the-top moms in the PTA (a la The New Adventures of Old Christine).  Tessa is also out of her element with the kids at school, who are the typical “mean girls.”
