Roger Ebert has pulled the plug on his movie review show, for now. “At the end of December, our public television program Ebert Presents At The Movies will go on hiatus,” he wrote Wednesday (Nov. 30) on his blog, “while we find necessary funding. This move is necessary to allow the public television stations that carry our show to plan their programs for the beginning of the new year. We held off as long as possible but we had to give notice today.” Ebert said he hopes the hiatus will be brief, and the show is considering a Kickstarter campaign.
