Gargano Mystery Continues

I was just listening to The Fanatic, and when a listener tried to ask about Anthony Gargano, the hosts said Gargano wasn’t fired, but wouldn’t elaborate. Then a minute later, a taped commercial with Gargano’s voice played, which would indicate that he is still employed by the station.

What’s going on?

 

Dancing with the Stars is Back

Nancy “Jo Polniaczek” McKeon from the Facts of Life will be one of the celebrities on Dancing with the Stars this season. The question isn’t whether she can dance, but who will be sitting in the audience for her? I hope it’s her brother, Philip McKeon, who starred on Alice.

Another New Normal for CBS3

So much for the CBS3 tagline, “Your New Normal” about Ukee Washington and Jessica Dean. Dean announced she is leaving the station, but didn’t say where she is going.

Maybe CBS3 can bring back Dean’s predecessor and lookalike, Susan Barnett, who can be seen on the station in the commercials for the law firm Kline and Specter.

Sports Radio Shuffle

It was shocking that three weeks into the Eagles season, The Fanatic let go of morning personality Anthony Gargano a few days ago.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up on his former station, WIP again.

 

Game of Thrones Concert Coming to Town

If you can’t wait until the next season of Game of Thrones on HBO, go to the Game of Thrones: Live Concert Experience at the Wells Fargo Center October 2nd. Peter Dinklage just won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

I would love it if there would be a concert of television theme songs. My setlist would include the themes from Alice, Gimme a Break, The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, Welcome Back Kotter, Laverne and Shirley, Three’s Company, Growing Pains, Family Ties, Veronica Mars, Charmed, One Day at a Time, Mary Tyler Moore, Magnum P.I., Dallas, and more.

 

Kelly Clarkson Talk Show Coming to Philly

Philadelphia will be one of the 11 NBC stations to air the new Kelly Clarkson talk show in the fall of 2019. Over the years, Clarkson has proven she can perform as a coach on The Voice, talk show guest, and special events host.

It will air at 2 p.m. before Ellen.

Emmy Ratings Plummet

It’s easy to figure out why the ratings for the Primetime Emmy awards were the lowest in history.

Because there are literally hundreds of shows and places to watch those shows now, nobody is watching the same shows. So when a show like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel wins lots of Emmys, nobody cares, because hardly anyone even knows what it is, let alone watches it.
