He had surgery a few weeks ago. Ebert has papillary (thyroid) cancer, a common (and curable) type.

Yeah, on one show a couple weeks back he looked really scary, like he'd had a total stroke, and they didn't say a thing about it...

They must have gotten lots of calls/emails, though, 'cause Ebert explained the next week that he'd just gotten out of surgery... He didn't discuss what kind of surgery it was... Simply said that he'd just had "part two of the surgery that last year's was part one of"...

He was talking like Stallone. One side of his moth would not move when he talked.

Although I don't agree with his reviews too often, I hope he sticks around with the show for a long time. I don't think I can handle a "Roeper & ????" show.
