I love game shows. But even more, I love game show hosts. My top 3 favorite game show hosts of all time are: Chuck Woolery, Alex Trebek and Bob Barker. And even though Pat Sajak, from Wheel of Fortune, seems like the creepy uncle I never had, he has a special place in my heart too.
Our dinner break would be two and a half hours long while they drove in cars and boats and gazebos…. We had a place called Los Arcos…. They had great margaritas, so Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six. And then come and do the last shows, and have trouble recognizing the alphabet.
Well Pat’s not the only one with questionable behavior. Here are some other game show hosts behaving badly:
1. Meredith Vieira gets hot and bothered for a young Navy pilot
“I’m ONE OLD HORNY WOMAN!”
“You can put your wet finger wherever you want it”
Please read Part I of the Jeopardy controversy HERE to get more fully up to date on the craziness that is happening among people who are usually too busy memorizing vice presidents, English royals and no longer circulating currencies (I kid, I kid. I love you guys).
A few days ago, I reported that Jeopardy has decided to close registration early for its online tests to qualify to be on the show. Usually, you have until two hours before the test starts to register. This year, they closed it off DAYS early without warning. Rumor has it that hackers may have been a factor. Really, Jeopardy, just because we Jeopardophiles are smarter than the average bear, doesn’t mean we don’t participate in some good ole fashioned procrastination.
Things got awkward when they were still showing commercials saying you could register, despite the fact that registration was long since closed.
The correct response is “What is a douchey thing to do?”
Closing reg while still saying register on the tv sucks. I’ll be contacting Sony, SEC about false advertising, FCC, and the state Attorney General Department of Consumer Affairs. Hope others do the same.
I’m not going to delve into the whole politics of Occupy Wall Street for this post. I do love a good protest and I do hate a bad drum circle, but that’s besides the point. What I’ve found missing from both sides of the debate is some good ole fashion humor. I feel like two sides have developed: you either are committed to the cause and take yourself way too seriously or you are one of those curmudgeonly curmudgeons who hates those Anti-American, anti-freedom rabble rousers (I may be simplifying things a bit).
That’s why I was oh so happy to see Triumph the Insult Dog on the Conan O’Brien Show visiting Occupy Wall Street. It’s a bit crass, but it plays around with both sides and challenges in a (for me to poop on sort of way) some of the hypocrisies going on.

So I usually don’t delve into television news on this blog, but I had to stop the HAHABUDA presses when I heard this: David Cross is joining the cast of Modern Family as a city council member who battles housewife Claire Dumphey (Julie Bowen). Modern Family just upped the ante.
After the jump some of my favorite David Cross videos:
