The New York Times covers This American Life's debut on television:

Mr. [Ira] Glass still liked the radio versions better. "Part of what is a mystery to me and the rest of the staff, honestly, is that it is so much less of a writer's medium," he said in a phone conversation one evening from Chicago. "Or we haven't figured out how to be writers in the medium the way we are in radio."

I still don't understand TV or movies.

Showtime has until December to decide whether to pick up the series, which would mean commissioning 10 to 13 episodes. But Mr. Glass also has the option to walk away, and he is not sure what he will decide. "I feel like I am really going to have to think about it," he said.
