Jimmy Tingle takes his “Andy Rooney” act to the subway

Back in the day, Jimmy Tingle almost fashioned himself a television career as the next Andy Rooney when he got hired to deliver Rooney-style commentary for CBS and its short-lived 60 Minutes II. This new video, in which Tingle talks about why we like the idea of public transportation in theory but not in reality, shows that Tingle still is ready to fill in for Rooney and be just as common-sense nutty so no one will know the difference. He can even let his eyebrows grow wild, if need be. You hear this, CBS?
