So now, of course, WGN-Ch. 9 needs to bring back "Bozo's Circus."
After all, what's the point of WGN declaring its independence from The CW Network if not to march to the beat of its own big-top band once more?
There will be very big shoes to fill, to be sure. But 15 years after axing the final iteration of arguably the most popular and enduring local kids show in the history of American television, there's still no single person or character as associated with Channel 9 as Bozo.
Admit it. If you remember any of his four-decade run on WGN, played by Bob Bell and then Joey D'Auria, you're smiling now as you think about a potential revival.
