Roger Ebert returns to TV with new show

Even though he can't talk, movie critic Roger Ebert is returning to television.

His new TV show "Ebert Presents at the Movies" premieres this Friday on PBS.

The 68-year-old is the executive producer on the show, but he won't be hosting it.

That job will go to other movie critics, but he will have a segment called "Roger's Office."

Ebert will use a computer-generated voice to go on what he calls "Rants and Raves."

Ebert lost his ability to speak after cancer surgery in 2006.
