Amanda Congdon Debuts on ABC

Here's a link to Amanda Congdon on ABC Her first show is up today and it's already been reviewed by the New York Times, Amanda Congdon - TV - Column - New York Times.

I learned a new word, abstemious. From the NYTimes:
Slim, swan-necked, with the upright bearing of a dancer or cadet, she doesn’t exactly lean in for intimacy with the viewer. She’s not relatable. She seems a touch abstemious. The news, it seems, kind of grosses her out.
Nice job Amanda, on dissing the whole Javascript interface of your vlog on the first show. That was pretty funny.

I was interested to hear that Tori Spelling's yard sale was part of her reality show. I saw a report on that on another network where they didn't say that, so it gave the impression that she was just having a yard sale.

Your report on it was better.

Where are the links to the snowflakes you talked about? Or the protest video? I looked around and couldn't find them.

I did find a direct link to the video though, Amanda Returns.

Looks bloglike and allows comments. Over there was also a link to subscribe to a feed for Amanda at ABC News, although without RSS 2.0 and media enclosures.

Send Amanda Congdon a video. SayItToAmanda!


  1. Hi Steve! Yes. The links will be up a little later today.. I will also have a post on chronicling my experiences getting the show up and running. I'm really happy because they didn't touch the content of the show one bit-- no edits to the script-- but we are still having some infrastructure issues. Hopefully many will be solved by next week. Not the javascript though, that will take a couple months-- jeesh! I WANT AN EMBEDDED PLAYER! haha

    I had trouble finding the links and comments, too. I didn't get the javascript joke right away, but knowing Amanda, figured it had something to do with ABC's web design.
    Here's my two cents. I emailed her because I couldn't find the comments area. Turns out they showed up when I refreshed the page. Also, I was looking on the damned pop-up player window.

    Yeah I just found out about this last night myself. It's great to see her back to work.
