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?
