Mixed reviews

Some readers apparently like it and are ordering it.

Some readers dislike it, as expected, and don't want to order it.

So it goes for our new premium TV book, which debuted Sunday and will be offered as a free sample in our Sunday papers through December.

After that it will become a subscription model, and some readers clearly will enjoy the added content.

As I wrote Sunday, this book includes everything I've heard readers say they want over six years.

As any editor knows, any change to the TV book sparks concerns, and I've heard them every step of the way. 

This premium book restores cuts and then some, coming at a small cost to readers who really want a TV book. We're glad to offer it, at a time when no more than 20 percent of our readers opted in for our previous book.
