I had my doubts whether Brian Williams could fill the void left by Tom Brokaw. However, he's doing a great job. I now actually watch NBC News regularly. Of course, uncertainty and irregular appearances by the ailing Peter Jennings and the fact that CBS can't make a decision on a Rather replacement helps.

I never did like Peter Jennings... his Canadian, socialist views always seem to ever-so-slightly bias his newscasts.
