TV guide has posted a great story covering the new Fox “What’s Adam West Watching?” promo campaign as well as an interview with Adam West. Here’s an excerpt: Adam West, star of a new Fox network promotional campaign called “What’s Adam West Watching,” couldn’t be more comfortable with comedy. This is the man, after all, who played one of the darkest crime fighters for campy laughs. “They have the Dark Knight, OK? I’m the bright knight, if you will,” says the star of the ’60s series Batman. The 81-year-old actor’s cool deadpan still serves him well in duties ranging from mayor of Quahog on Family Guy to the new promos, in which he tells viewers which Fox shows he loves, with much comedy along the way. TVGuide.com recently caught up with West. The rest of the story can be found here.
