Richard Roeper gives thumbs down to "Ebert & Roeper" contract. He will leave the show next month.

Richard Roeper has given two thumbs down—and two weeks' notice—to a contract offer for his stalwart movie review show.
After being unable to agree to terms to renew his contract with show producers, the Chicago Sun-Times columnist announced plans to leave At the Movies With Ebert & Roeper after eight seasons cohosting with Roger Ebert.
Roeper's last flick of the thumb will come the weekend of Aug. 16-17. The following week, At the Movies will be in the unprecedented predicament of being without either of its titular critics.
