This week, Y.P.R. presents “I Love I Love the [X]0s,” in which contributors share fond memories of and incisive observations about VH1’s series of decadal retrospectives.
We’ve assembled a blue-ribbon panel of D-list celebrities to provide running commentary on the shows. Their serialized coverage will run Monday through Friday, with two back-to-back ten-hour marathons over the weekend.
And, of course, there will also be the usual Y.P.R. fare of short stories, personal essays, and the like, each celebrating a series of TV shows that celebrate the recent past.
