Is Robert Osborne Ever Coming Back To TCM?

First his celebrity guest hosts said that he was “taking a well-earned vacation” and that he would be back in the fall.  Well it’s almost October and stilll there is no sign of TCM’s great host Robert Osborne.  

Tonight, a new guest commentator, a film archivist, was interviewed my film critic Leonard Maltin.  We expected Mr. Osborne to be back by now.  Tonight was a totally new segment and not seeing Osborne was strange indeed.

Several weeks ago I published a story which came directly from Robert Osborne’s Facebook page.  http://thedamienzone.com/2011/09/12/tcms-robert-osborne-issues-public-statement-on-facebook/

Well, weeks have gone by and not a peep from, for or about Robert Osborne.  I don’t like the quietness.  Guest hosts have  even stopped saying, “the vacationing Robert Osborne.”

TheDamienZone really misses Robert and if he’s not coming back, we wish him only the best, but if he is indeed coming back, we are so thankful that he’s well enough to get back in front of the camera.

  1. There have been wonderful guest host on TCM, but no one can take the place of the great R.O. I appreciate his desire for privacy, but any celebrity with a fan base as large as his should at least let us know how he is fairing. We miss you Robert and wish you only the best. Please hurry back so we may enjoy your great knowledge of film and enchanting personna. I miss your smile and laughter!

  7. Thank God!!!!

    December 1st is still awhile away, but at least we know now when Robert will be back. He has been sorely missed, no offense to all the guest hosts who have been standing in for him.

    Be well Robert, can’t wait until December 1st.
