I love to talk trash about TV! In my other blog, thecartoons.net.
I complain about Jimmy Kimmel a bit (especially about how he barely mentioned it when Veatrice passed away), and his lame bits, over there, but I still do watch him at times. He’s a good interviewer.
I got all excited when you announced one night last week that Governor Rod Blagojevich was going to be on. I did a Blagojevich cartoon a few months ago, and was fascinated by him last winter as he got knocked down and just kept on coming. Plus, I tend to like Mafia types. Your first interview that night was a man who is married to Mariah Carey. Don’t know his name, but that’s all you talked about with him. You were all awkward, kiss-ass, and uncomfortable.
Then Ex-Governor Blagojevich came on (I think he’s ex-gov) to pitch his new book, called The Governor– so maybe he’s not an ex-governor?? I found him very interesting. He said there were a lot of secret tapes that he is NOT allowed to talk about, that would clear his name, and that the whole scandal is upside down. Hmm. I hope those tapes are in the book. So, Jimbo, you let him talk about that – and he is an interesting speaker – and then you made him talk about his hair, and how he conditions it. Funny as hell. The 2 of you hit it off, didn’t you? Youtube.
Kimmel did a piece about how he would auction off Rod Blago’s chair, which as a former ebay fan, I thought was kind of cool. I thought it might be a joke, but he signed it, and I found it, on ebay!
To see the entire list of people who had sat in Jimmy’s/ Rod/ Blago’s chair, please see my post in my other TV blog. This is just as the chair was listed on ebay, and it’s long gone now, so you won’t be able to find the description many places online now!
I write more about Blagojevich (spellcheck, please) and another man with a lot of hair – here.
