BORING TV: GOLFWEEK's Martin Kaufmann writes when Ahmad Rashad greeted Tiger Woods for the first interview of his new show, "The First Word," by asking, "What's up, brother man?" that question "arguably was the toughest that Rashad put to Woods." The segment "illustrated what happens when you combine a bad interviewer with a subject who is programmed not to say anything interesting." Kaufmann: "You get bad TV. If you missed it -- it ran opposite of the NCAA Final Four Saturday -- I wouldn't recommend seeking out a rerun" (GOLFWEEK, 4/6 issue).
