Yesterday, after covering the Republican and Democratic National Conventions for two long weeks, CNN partied as hard they could! The newspeople did it by getting down to Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline. Can you think of anything Whiter than that? It was as White as Wolf Blitzer’s hair and beard. Did you see him trying to Rock out to the chorus? It was even more boring than watching his daily newscast.
It is really hot and humid in Philadelphia today and it is hard not to sweat in that type of weather. If you are a male news anchor covering the Democratic National Convention, then you have to wear a suit with a jacket and that makes you even hotter when you are reporting outside. So hot, if you are Today‘s Carson Daly, you will sweat through your button down shirt even though it is paper thin. It’s like he entered a wet T-shirt contest and didn’t even know it.
I bet he can’t wait to get back on The Voice where the studio is ice cold thanks to air conditioning. Air conditioning is our good friend!
WTAE aired a story about a new study on butter’s healthiness, and when they came out of it Ryan Beesley found out he is not as a smooth as butter. The meteorologist asked Mona Nair, “What do you think about boner?” Realizing her weatherman’s mistake, she said, “Butter? Well, I am a huge butter fan.” Wait, which is she really a huge fan of?
I wonder how Beesley will be able to weather this storm.
Most of us know what it is like to have a wet T-Shirt on, but do you what it is like to put one on? It is not easy. Imagine trying to put 13 on in one minute so you can be in break the Guinness World Record. That is what Today tried to find out today, so they had Natalie Morales, producer Alex Ficquette and fan see if they could break the record.
Did they break the record? The fan came the closest and she only managed to get 5 on. So I guess it is harder to get into a wet T-Shirt than to have someone get it off of you.
On a really hot day, why don’t you try to break this record. Whether you do it or not, it will probably feel really good. That and you know you want to.
HLN’s biggest name is leaving the network in October after 12 years. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will be joining “a very large digital component.” At this point in time, she is not ready to disclose what that is.
Just like she reads too much into a story, I am doing the same. I wonder why she is really leaving. Did they not renew her contract because her ratings are down big time? Did they want her to take a pay cut because of that and she refused? Or maybe she was ready to move on and so were they. The “news” network changes their identity like every week, so maybe they wanted to try something new in that slot. Although with the Bill Cosby trial coming up, I think that will be a big mistake. But then again, I have never seen her show.
Will you miss her?
There was a Greek reporter shooting a standup outside of a horse’s stable and the horse was ready for its closeup. No matter how hard it tried to get his ear, the reporter ignored the requests. So the horse literally took his ear and still his request was ignored.
But what the TV news guy got was the best standup of his career, even though he didn’t realize it because of all the horsing around going around behind him.
Olympian Barbara Kendall was driving home from Yoga on Tuesday when a Twister suddenly appeared in the New Zealand sky. All of the relaxation she got from it quickly disappeared when she saw it. Which you can’t blame her because look at how huge that thing is. It is of epic proportions. It is the type of storm that penetrates your inner body leaving all of your hairs standing up on end in electrical excitement.
I don’t know whether to drive towards it and then away from it and then towards it and then away from it. You get the picture. What would you do?
Anyone who has been crazy enough to drink Apple Cider Vinegar straight, can tell you it is one most of the disgusting things you will ever put in your mouth. Just like how most things that taste bad are good for you.
Yesterday on KCTV’s Better Kansas City, the three anchors decided to do a shot live on the air. Rob Finnerty went first, as soon as he swallowed just the tiniest bit of it, his face contorted. Then Lisa Teachman covered her nose and downed the whole shot in one gulp. As soon as she swallowed, she felt like it was going to come right back up. Leaving the two of them fighting over the sink to drink water straight from the faucet to get that taste out of their mouth. Finally, there was Alexis Del Cid and she drank it no problem. She is the bravest woman I know today because there’s no way I would ever drink that stuff straight. I took the pills because I am too much of a wuss.
But back to the anchor, this is why newspeople hate May Sweeps. You never what wild and wacky things that they are going to make them do on the air. For example, drink Apple Cider Vinegar straight from the bottle.
The Today show posted a mug shot of Al Roker, so does the weatherman have something to tell us? Yes, he is reporting from Alcatraz today as part of their National Parks series this week.
So even though he didn’t really commit a crime, let’s pretend that he did. What do you think he was arrested for?
Fresh off of the heels that Michael Strahan is leaving Live with Kelly and Michael for Good Morning America, comes news that Billy Bush is departing Access Hollywood for Today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, unlike what went down with Live, the staff of AH is aware of his departure.
No word what his role will be on the morning news show, but they are speculating he will be co-hosting the 9a hour.
When it comes to who will replace him on the Entertainment News show, no mention of that as of now. I hope they go with an actor like Extra did.
