Sorry for the outage, but based on all the emails and phone calls and IMs, you really do read The Beat! It’s a touching thought and we won’t let you down again.


  1. Rumors had circulated that PW had drooped The Beat from their network, or at least that glamorous Beat star Heidi MacDonald had been removed from the show.

    I envisioned that they would keep broadcasting The Beat, only they’d try replacing Heidi with Sandy Duncan, like they did to Valerie Harper on Valerie’s Family.

    But Duncan would screw it up so badly that within a week, the PW people would have to beg Heidi to come back for 10 million dollars and get The Beat up and running again. Works for me!
