The Talk > The View

After watching today’s episode of The Talk, I’m not surprised it is practically tied with rival The View in the ratings.

The Talk’s current lineup of Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood has more chemistry then the current View lineup of Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters, who is scheduled to retire in May.

The View seems to have lost its way with the departures of Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

I wouldn’t be surprised if McCarthy gets the boot in May.

Another Blow to Local Programming

I’m sad to report that the Comcast Network canceled the last remnants of CN8, It’s Your Call With Lynn Doyle, Voice of Reason with Larry Kane and Art Fennell Reports.

Philly has suffered the loss of many local shows over the years, including the entire CN8 network.

Howard Stern Birthday Bash

Forget the awards shows – the best celebrities from music, movies, television, and comedy were at the Howard Stern Birthday Bash Friday night. 

I have been a faithful listener of Howard’s since his show was simulcast on WYSP in 1986.

Would Your Child Like to Be a Weatherperson?

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8 AT PLYMOUTH MEETING MALL

 

 

CBS 3 Mobile Weather Lab on site

 

 

 

Philadelphia, January 30, 2014 – Does your child have dreams of a career as a TV weathercaster? CBS 3 Meteorologist Kathy Orr is giving local youngsters a chance to show off their forecasting skills on television. Orr and the Eyewitness News weather team are hosting auditions for young broadcasters to audition at the “Kidcaster Search” Saturday, February 8, 12 noon to 3 p.m. in the Center Court at Plymouth Meeting Mall in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania.

 

Orr, who has helped area teachers develop coursework for children in meteorology, began the program in 2004 to give area youngsters a chance to play TV weathercaster while encouraging their enthusiasm for science.

 

CBS 3’s entire weather team — Meteorologists Kate Bilo, Katie Fehlinger, Carol Erickson and Justin Drabick will join Orr in Plymouth Meeting for the auditions which are open to young people ages 6 to 16. The CBS 3 Mobile Weather Lab, the station’s weather station on wheels, will also be on location at the Mall, demonstrating the latest in weather technology.

 

The best performances of the February 8th “Kidcaster” try-out will be featured on the early morning and 5 p.m. editions of Eyewitness News the week of February 17th. Auditions will also be posted on CBSPhilly.com.

 

Youngsters will be videotaped delivering a one-minute forecast on a simulated weather set. They may bring their own forecast, make one up on site or a script will be provided. “Kidcaster gives us a chance to meet local children,” says Orr, “and, hopefully, get them excited about future careers in science and math.”
