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.
Remember when Wolf Blitzer majorly bombed on Jeopardy? Yesterday, he reminded us of that epic failure. When he was talking about the passing of the legendary Prince, he said, “All of us, of course, remember Purple Haze.” I don’t remember Purple Haze, do you?
There is really is no excuse for him not to know that film and album because he was old enough to know it when it came out. Plus, it is one of the best selling soundtracks of all time and the movie was one of the biggest ones of that year.
How are we supposed to trust CNN if their anchor seems to be clueless on so many things that are so obvious?
via FTV Live KWCH‘s Molly McCollum was doing weather the other day, and looks like the people of Minnesota are going to penetrated by the tip of a major storm front. To make matters worse, the people in her town of Wichita, Kansas are balls deep in it. Now when it comes to Iowa, they are stuck in the middle. They will feel it, but it just won’t be as stimulating as it is for the surrounding states.
You know, if storms looked like this when I was growing up, I probably would’ve gone into meteorology instead of hard and entertainment news.
The other day when Willie Geist was introducing the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Today, and he mispronounced the last word of the title. He left out the c, the m and the d, so instead he said one of the 7 words you can’t say on broadcast TV.
In his defense, it was bound to happen. I mean not only does it rhyme with the curse word, you can spell Schmidt without sh!t.
The Today show did a story about how men are taking their manscaping to lower levels. They are now not only shaving their privates, they are also shaving their legs because women prefer it. When Savannah Guthrie heard this, she thought it would be a good idea if her male co-anchors tried it. So he gave Carson Daly a razor and some shaving cream and off the hair went. Well, at least it was a start because it will take more than one razor and a can of shaving cream to get those hairy legs silky smooth.

WNCN had a chyron on the air for their story that left them looking like the word they misspelled. They had a Health Watch story on about a “New MRI to assess military trauma.” Only problem is that they left off the fourth S in assess, therefore their viewers so the word a$$es instead.
If you are going to assess the problem, then think of it this way. We use the word a$$es much more than the word assess, so you can’t really blame the chyron operator for the error. You just want to shake their hand for doing it because it is very funny.
Remember when Geraldo Rivera shared a shirtless Selfie of himself and you were totally grossed out by it? Well, yesterday as he was awaiting his elimination from Dancing with the Stars, he posted another one. This one is even grosser. Not because he is older, but because he does not look good as a blonde.
Thankfully, we won’t have to suffer through him trying to dance on the ABC competition show anymore.
Virginia has new laws against pub crawls in their state and WJLA wanted to see if people were observing the new legislation. Basically they wanted to know if people would stay clothed while they celebrated St Patrick’s Day.
Kimberly Suiters asked Jeff Goldberg, “Everyone keeping their clothes on so far?” Almost as soon as she was done with her a question, a woman walked by with her shirt lifted. So the answer to that exposé is nope. Someone had to uncover the truth on the boob tube, right?

WBAK‘s Aaron Perlman was doing the weather and the station was showing the their weathercam on the green screen. All of a sudden a big black crow was ready for his closeup and flew right towards the lens. As soon as the weatherman saw it, he ran screaming like he was starring in Birdemic 3 or a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. Then when he finally returned to do the weather, he instructed the crew, “Clean up in aisle 5.”
Now before you think, how could he be scared of something that couldn’t possibly hurt him? Two years ago he was attacked by a spider live on the air. It’s like he is in his own horror movie and he is the victim that is always attacked and never dies! Kind of like Nancy Thompson in Nightmare in Elm Street or Laurie Strode in Halloween.
For some reason Flavor Flav was in Salt Lake City, and he did an interview at the local Fox station KTSU there, you know what I am saying. Actually he didn’t just talk the anchors, they made time for him to be the weatherman for a day, you know what I am saying.
How did he do? Good enough that he isn’t public enemy #1 there, you know what I am saying?
BTW you know what I am saying?
