Things I’ve Been Watching Over Vacation

Here are some of the things I’ve caught over the last week or so:

Boyz in the Hood (at least 3 times on either Spike or VH1)

Can’t Buy Me Love – Seemingly on Oxygen every other day, I’ll never pass up a chance to see this movie with Patrick Dempsey

Every goofy countdown show on VH1

The Notebook – The unofficial movie of ABC Family Channel

The finale of Celebrity Rehab on VH1 – Can’t wait until the spin-off, Sober House.

Sopranos reruns on A & E

Cosby Show reruns on TV Land

It’s a Wonderful Life on NBC

10! Show Looking For Chef

NBC10 will be holding on-air auditions to become the chef for the 10! Show.

Five contestants will be selected to compete on television and the winner will get to join the show permanently with Bill Henley and Lori Wilson.

The 10! Show airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on NBC10.

This isn’t the first time NBC10 has held an open casting call for a job.  Traffic reporter John Ogden (who just departed the station) was hired after he won The Greatest Summer Gig Ever contest.

Murphy’s Status

Comcast SportsNet confirmed that former CN8 sportscaster Gregg Murphy is doing work for CSN, but said his long-term status has not been determined.

Murphy, a St. Joe’s graduate, who was a producer and on-air talent for CN8, recently lost his show, Out of Bounds.

The Thrill of Victory, The Agony of Vacation

It was great that the Eagles smashed the Cowboys, but because it happened between Christmas and New Year’s, on Comcast SportsNet Eagles Post Game Live, it was third-stringer Ron Burke instead of Michael Barkann or Neil Hartman; and on WIP Monday morning, instead of Angelo Cataldi, it was Big Daddy Graham and other replacements.

Hurricane Engaged!

According to Dan Gross, NBC10 chief meteorologist Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz is  engaged.  This will be his second marriage.
