Delta Burke as Mary Cherry's mother (Cherry Cherry) on Popular was one of the funniest tv characters ever.

She went to my high school. Not when I was there, alas.

I've seen it a couple of times while getting my teeth cleaned. I thought dentist offices were their major demographic.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Matt Lauer is the dude in all the blinds who's fking all the female anchors, and the only way they get their jobs is through his personal casting couch, right?


When Ryan Seacrest can do your job better than you it's time to end yourself. The job Matt did at the opening ceremonies of the Olympics was horrible.

And he was ten times better than the chick

TheJoe03: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Al Roker is a pro-DEA, anti-legalization moron. fark him and his pathetic weather forecasting.

Really, how did that ever come up? He's a weather man for fark sake!


www.newscaststudio.com

"The weekend looks wet and rainy in Humboldt County, where all the dirty, dirty hippies are growing their marijuana, with a high of 87. Speaking of high, the dopeheads and grass freaks will be terrified by the thunderstorms that arrive at the beginning of next week. That's the national weather, now let's check in on the weather in your neck of the woods, which hopefully isn't overrun by reefer dens."

screw that piece of human garbage. Lousy hypocrite. This guy runs his mouth over things like what Don Imus says, saying how he should be severely punished, etc. then he goes and makes jokes about peoples severe medical conditions (seizures) but then begs for forgiveness and understanding, it was just a joke, etc etc.

He should burn in hell.

a) what was the joke her was trying to make?
b) whom was offended and why?
c) why is this news?

He's on Howard Stern fairly often and I must say, he comes across as a very interesting, bright individual. And he's fine even without the Today show gig - he's got a very thriving production company right now.
 
2012-08-17 07:51:47 AM
Oh "under" the bus, I thought he said "back" of the bus. I was already to be outraged about some racism! Good thing I got the brace on my knee today

Let's be real here. If you had the chance to nail Natalie Morales, you're not passing that up.

True, but I've been staring at Amy Robach since she was the traffic reporter for FOX DC.

Al Roker's the guy who demanded Don Imus be fired for "nappy headed hos" but didn't see the big deal when people called out Al for mocking epileptics on the show. Douche.
 
2012-08-17 08:20:09 AM
I use to watch the CBS morning show, but once they ditched everyone and hired Gail King I said "that's it, all done". I think she has the journalistic talent of toad.

I liked Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and Erica Hill.

Fade2black: Ann Curry sure wasn't doing anyone any favors with how fake she was in that studio, but you can't ignore the fact Matt owns that place in a big way. I can't imagine what the christmas parties are like.


I still would bang that 55 year old Ann Curry

Can you tell me the last time someone got fired for something they said that wasn't about race?
 
2012-08-17 08:49:03 AM
Can anyone explain his comment for those of us who don't want this show? Who got thrown under the bus? Who's Ann Curry? WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

ChrisDe: The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: brap: I don't understand celebrity culture. Especially when people like Al Roker are celebs.

Al Roker is a celeb because he was a jolly, fat man who made jokes that made middle-aged American white women laugh while their husbands went off to another 10-hour workday and left their needs unfulfilled. Then he managed the difficult celeb pirouette from jolly fat man into somewhat creepy looking, somewhat inappropriate pervert, who is still loved by middle-aged American white women, who now laugh because they want his Nigerian rain stick inside of them while their husbands go off to another 10-hour workday and leave their needs unfulfilled.

What I'm saying is... It's good to see Roker nailing Lauer instead of the harem of grandmothers he normally is.

When I work for ten hours a day, it's to fulfill my wife's need for a car and a roof located in a nice part of town that she can put her head under.

You put your wife's head under a car?


Well uh...mistakes were made.
 
2012-08-17 09:41:27 AM
Even if he got fired, he'd have a wonderful career ahead of him as a television game show host.
 
2012-08-17 09:43:22 AM

brap: That was kind of funny though better than the nod and grin shiate we usually have to choke down.


Exactly. Just tell me the freakin' news. I miss Chet Huntley and David Brinkley.

Good. Though they should have fired him when he stopped being fat and black. Hopefully they will hire some hot biatch with fantastic tits to take his place.

ABC should hire him and have him as a guest weather caster just to stick it to the Today Show. But then again, then that means less air time for Ginger Zee.

They bought them 3 or 4 years ago, I have a friend who worked there at the time and he said the NBC execs were a bunch of idiots, if a weather event wasn't happening on the east of west coast and wasn't a tornado or hurricane they were not interested and felt they could skip over bad thunderstorms in the mid west to report central park was 3 degrees above average that day.

Her shoulders are lopsided too! It's almost like she's leaning a little. Weird. But I'm sure you're right.

vudukungfu: Some one please explained:

b) whom was offended and why?
c) why is this news?

/Yes, I read the article.
///3 times.


A couple of months ago, even though the Today Show was at the top of the ratings of all the morning shows, NBC removed Ann Curry as co-host and replaced her with Savannah Guthrie without any real reason. Roker's joke was that NBC was "winning" the ratings, and yet NBC (and possibly Matt Lauer) through Ann under the bus. 

It falls under news because there was a bit of controversy when the change was announced a couple of months ago, as it seemed like Ann was simply being replaced by someone younger (and maybe prettier), and not necessarily because she was a poor anchor or the replacement was better.

This.

Essentially, if Ann was hotter and younger and didn't mail in her performances in the fluff pieces she wouldn't have gotten fired.

I wish the US had a real morning newscast that just reported news, and didn't have celebrities, fluff and blatant product shilling.

farkers at CBS just got rid of the only thing on that show worth watching. Erica Hill, guess she shoulda been friends with Oprah. Charlie Rose has proven (in 7 or 8 months) that he is incapable of being and anchor sucks.

2012-08-17 03:27:54 PM
Well, I'm quite liking the CBS morning news for those very reasons (no to very little fluff, celebrities, and/or product placement). I like Charlie Rose quite a bit; Erica Hill appears to be pretty sharp, too.

The only issue I have is Gayle King: She seems to know little to nothing about anything, but that sure doesn't stop her putting her pronouncements and opinions out there. She also horrible at interviewing and tends to go off on random tangents that are all about her, rather than the person she is interviewing. She is just plain annoying as fark.

But I'm thinking that CBS may be wise to how annoying she may be to the viewers -- her screen time seems to be increasingly limited to the last hour or half-hour of the show. I have hopes she either get bored and go on to whatever else her BFF Oprah has for her to do, or she'll just piss Charlie Rose off enough that he'll get her off the show. A male host getting a female host fired would be a lot more acceptable in this case, because said female host is frankly incompetent.
