Whats Up With This, EW?

Whats Up With This, EW?

I have long placed Entertainment Weekly on a magazinial pedistal.. But what is going on with this? Not even December, and they are announcing the Entertainer of the Year. Now, Im not arguing J.K. Rowling’s title – she is the most obvious choice – but I’m wondering about this change in editorial… For nearly 20 years, the last issue of the year was called “Best of [insert year here]”, as many of us know. That included entertainers, films, TV, music, etc.. It was an issue I eagerly awaiting from the age of 7 on. What will become of it? Are they simply splitting it up into a bunch of issues all through December (and thus ignoring Decembers events)? Next week will there be a picture of Josh Brolin on the cover and “Best of FIlm”? This kinda smells of a cheap way of spreading out whats likely one of their best selling issues.
