More Random Musings
- May 8
Well, more thoughts just seem to be coming through my
brain, so I need to share them all with you.
¦ There was a bit of trepidation this past week when Ty
Treadway was announced as the host of "Lets Play
Crosswords." That, along with the name Rossi Morreale as
the host of "Temptation" sent a collective "Huh?" there
as well. My words of advicewait and see. I give Merv a
lot more credit (Rolf Benirschke, notwithstanding) to
give unknowns with talent and drive a chance at
greatness. I mean--who would have thought Howie Mandel,
Bob Saget, Meredith Vieira, Penn Jillette would become
good (and in Meredith and Howies casesvery good)
hosts. Give it time, and on September 10...cheer them
on...dont root for them to fail because they arent the
ones you wanted to.
¦ I think GSN is going to either have the biggest hit of
the summer or the biggest case of bad press when
"Without Prejudice" premieres in July. Having been in a
rehearsal, I can say if they keep the British format and
they dont just cast touchy feely types, this could be
explosive in the post-Imus fallout. My predictionthis
will be the water cooler show of the summer season.
¦ Okay, people. We all want to know who the next host of
Price is going to be...but there has been so many
rumors, red herrings etc. that I am starting to tire of
the chase. Lets just wait for the announcement and get
on with life, ok?
¦ Heres a wild bit of cynical speculation...is David
Hasselhoff that crazy enough to release a tape of
himself drunk because a) he has an autobiography coming
out on May 15 and b) Americas Got Talent is coming on
in early June? Or is it another sad state of the
"gotcha" electronic journalism of the TMZs, ETs and
¦ Outside of the pop charts...wheres Chris Daughtry? I
mean, he got paid to use the second single from "Daughtry"
(Home) on American Idol. But even though all five
winners were on there...you would kind of expect him to
be there since his album has sold over 2.3 million
copies, no? I mean, are you that bitter, Chris?
¦ Paris Hilton in Jail? Now, THATS Surreal.
¦ Why is it that so many people have to either get naked
in Playboy (Kristin Lefevbre) or full on hardcore (Toastee)
to get their point across....I think that shows you are
relying totally on your body and not your brains...
¦ And finally, its Mothers Day. Call your mom,
grandmom, stepmom on Sunday. They were the one who gave
birth to you and took care of you all those years. As
you know, my grandmother who lived until 103 was one of
the most special people in my life. Dont forget the
special people this Sundayor the other 364 days of the
You agree or disagree? Fire me off a letter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
