Charlie Rose on Google Video...

Although Charlie Rose is the master of spouting CV... I am a fan of the show. His show does seem to pry more (insight) out of his guests that your average 24hr cable TV newz show.

Google Video has been hosting his shows for a while now.. and from then to now, they have been playing with various methods with how to pay for it.. He and Google have tried things like...
  • Have the 'current' episode free via streaming.. but pay for the d/l version. At the same time, all 'archive' shows were for pay.. with the first three minutes free.
  • Have all shows free for streaming.. but play one or two commercials during the stream. Again, all d/l versions are pay.
Now.. it seems like the whole catalog is free for streaming.. but its IMPOSSIBLE to get a search of all the episodes in date order thus its very hard to find the 'current' how.. Arg..

Google.. fix Charlie Rose!
