Guess who's coming back to his original home on PBS?

Legendary film critic Roger Ebert returns to Chicago's WTTW, original home of the pubcasting fave At the Movies, in January 2011 with Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. This time around, Ebert is producing. Co-hosting will be Christy Lemire, film critic of The Associated Press, and Elvis Mitchell of KCRW's The Treatment. In addition to reviewing new releases, the two will comment on new media, classics, on-demand viewing and genres, and there'll be more on the show's website. The program will use the famous (and copyrighted) "Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down" format invented by Ebert and his longtime collaborator, Gene Siskel, who died in 1999.
