Storyline

Oliver Platt plays Wallace Benton, a journalist for a New York tabloid magazine called the NY Ledger. He works along side his soon to be ex-wife, and various other people, using his journalistic instincts to get the story no matter what it takes. He seems to drink heavily, and he curses, so he's clearly an average guy, with no super human qualities about him. On the side, he teaches a class full of journalism students, who sometimes go along on his researching "missions," and he frequently uses them to get information on stories he has done, or is doing, to save himself some time. Benton is a smooth talker with a lot of tricks up his sleeve, always searching for more information to add just the right touch to his articles, and he sometimes finds himself using somewhat devious tactics to get that information.

Great
24 October 2002 | by acm4413See all my reviews

I think this show is great. I didn't watch it when it was actually on NBC, but when Bravo played a few of the episodes last week I fell in love with it. I think that it had amazing actors and actresses, and it was quite funny at times. It was interesting.
