Congratulations to The Brady Bunch, named one of the 100 all time greatest television shows by Entertainment Weekly.

New Favorite Radio Station

My new favorite radio station is Entertainment Weekly radio on Sirius 105.  Launched three weeks ago, the network discusses television and movies 24/7.  They did a great job covering the death of James Gandolfini last week.

Daytime Emmy award-winning game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, daytime’s #1 show and the longest-running game show in television history, will bring its fifth annual casting call to Philadelphia on Tuesday, June 25 for contestants to appear during the 42nd season of the game show. In each market where the casting call is taking place, representatives from the participating local CBS owned and affiliated station will be on hand to interview and videotape contestant hopefuls vying for free trips to Los Angeles and guaranteed spots in the studio audience. Two participants will be selected from each market to fly to Los Angeles and attend a taping of the legendary game show, starting in Fall 2013. A bidder’s spot on Contestants’ Row will be guaranteed to one of the two participants, who will learn if they are selected to “come on down” when they hear their name called during the show’s taping.
