HALLOWEEN 2009 ON TV
Friday, October 30, 2009
You couldn't turn on the TV this morning without seeing your favorite show getting all spooky for Halloween.
Regis & Kelly changed outfits a bunch of times like they do every year for their Halloween special. This year, they paid tribute to reality TV. They started the show as Jon and Kate Gosselin. Gelman dressed as the balloon boy, with Art Moore by his side as his crazy father. Reege also dressed up as Britain's Got Talent singer, Susan Boyle. While Kelly changed outfits to be Lady Gaga. The show ended with its annual best costume contest.
Elsewhere, Ellen Degeneres dressed up as the cover of O magazine. Her outfit was of her pushing Oprah on a swing. Pretty funny. Rachael Ray spent the day as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Wendy Williams dressed up as Dolly Parton. She had the perfect body for it, fake boobs and all! Tyra Banks changed her outfit a few times. She started her show dressed as Whoppi Goldberg, with a cardboard cutout of the other ladies from The View attached to her. Just like Kelly Ripa, Tyra also sported a Kate Gosselin wig. Martha Stewart and her audience dressed up as characters from Where The Wild Things Are. Martha's guests included Jimmy Fallon, who she treated to some frightening Halloween-inspired foods.

WOMEN BARE ALL IN TV NEWS SWEEPS STUNT
Thursday, October 29, 2009
Here's a way to get ratings: show two naked women in evening newscasts and call it "news."
Today, is the first day of November sweeps. Oddly enough, it's also the day that WJLA in Washington is starting a series on breast cancer detection. The series will feature two women fully exposed on late-afternoon and evening newscasts.
The station realizes that the timing of this story is sure to raise some eyebrows.
"People will say we're doing it just for ratings," general manager Bill Lord said. "But we're a commercial television station... we're trying to get people to watch us. Yes, this is an attention-getting story, but it's also an important story."
So, they are doing it for ratings.
By the way, one of the subjects is a 28-year-old woman. Wonder what she looks like.

Great episode of Jimmy Fallon last night that's a must see for Howard Stern fans. Artie Lange was on in what was one of his best appearances by far. He stuck around for the entire show and killed it. The segment with Olivia Munn was hilarious and the special guest ping ping player was the icing on the cake. Amazing show. Here's a clip from Artie's first segment. Check out Jimmy Fallon's website to watch the whole show. It's worth it.
