| TV Show Information
Smartline is a late-night panel discussion show aired on Channel 6 and hosted by Kent Brockman. It is one of the more highbrow programs on Channel 6, particularly when compared to Eye on Springfield, the opening sequence of which features semi-naked women winking at the viewer. The show invites several guests from the local area, each of whom have strong opinions about a certain issue, and has them to participate in debate. Brockman often presents the show in a manner biased to one side of the debate.
Behind the Laughter
Smartline is a parody of Nightline, a late-night news program on ABC which Ted Koppel anchored from 1980 until 2005.
