Wednesday, November 24, 2010
If you like trashy talk shows like Jerry Springer, Maury and Steve Wilkos, then get ready for the Jeremy Kyle show. The show is already a huge hit in Britain and is coming to the states next fall. Broadcasting & Cable reports the show has already been picked up in 70-percent of the United States, including nine of the top 10 markets. Debmar-Mercury will produce new episodes for America.

The holiday season is even greater if you have Sirius Sattelite Radio. All week long, The Martha Stewart channel has been getting subscribers ready for turkey day with its annual "Thanksgiving Hotline." Chefs like Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali have been answering people's cooking questions live on the air. If this doesn't get you in the Thanksgiving spirit, than nothing freakin' will.
If you're already in the Christmas spirt, Sirius is offering up a bunch of channels that play only Christmas music. "Holly" (ch.3) features traditional favorites from artists like John Mayer, Josh Groban, Mariah Carey and Michael Buble. "Holiday Traditions" (ch. 4) plays all the classics from artists like Nat King Cole, Paul McCartney, Andy Williams and Bing Crosby. Love this station. Coming December 1, there's "Holiday Pops," which features classical Christmas carols (ch. 79). On December 10, Christmas goes country with the "Country Christmas" channel (ch. 62.)

NANCY O'DELL GETS THE E.T. HOSTING GIG
Thursday, November 11, 2010
When Mary Hart announced she's leaving Entertainment Tonight after this season, the natural choice for her replacement would have been Lara Spencer. Lara has hosted ET's sister show, The Insider, for years. It seemed like the perfect fit. But now, word that Lara has been pushed aside. Nancy O'Dell will be the new co-host of ET starting next season.
O'Dell left Access Hollywood last year, claiming the show was too tabloid. (Rumor has it she didn't get along with egomaniac co-host Billy Bush). Lara Spencer has been hosting The Insider solo since Pat O'Brien was kicked to the curb for bad behavior. In August, it was announced that she'd be Mary Hart's replacement. Spencer even moved her family out to Los Angeles, thinking the job was hers. Unfortunately for her, Nancy O'Dell has really good representation.
Sources say ET's executive producer, Linda Bell, gave the thumbs down to O'dell months ago. But that didn't stop O'Dell's agent from calling the head of CBS, Les Moonves, to convince him to bail on Spencer.
The New York Post claims Spencer is pissed about being looked over. But Spencer claims that couldn't be further from the truth (yeah, right). Today, she spoke out to People magazine.
"There's no feud. I have a great job. I host a show that I love and that I helped launched," Spencer said. "Nancy is a really great choice. I've known her for years and she's going to be a great addition to the team."
Talk about taking the high road. Let's see how long Lara sticks around on the set of The Insider.
