If you missed it, as you should have, Ben Lyons and Ben Mankiewicz (collectively, the Bends) debuted this past week on “At the Movies,” taking over for Richard Roeper and Roger Ebert. The show has been around now for 33 years, and though watching it always made me inexplicably bristle, seeing The Bends (who have been doing red carpet coverage and a TMZ show, respectively) in the chairs of Siskel and Ebert inspired in me a special kind of loathing. The sort of loathing that makes me want to hand-create a Golem from sewage and mud and sic it on The Bends for desecrating the memory of Gene Siskel and shitting on the chair of Roger Ebert.

33 years, folks. And now two putzes who will no doubt fellate every movie on display have taken over. Let’s see how quickly The Bends can drive it into the ground. I give it a year, tops.

Here’s a clip. Hold your breath.
