Report: Brian Williams once lobbied to host ‘The Tonight Show’

NBC is surely hoping that people — especially those in the media — will forgive and forget Brian Williams over the next six months, while he serves his suspension from NBC Nightly News. But that long of a time period will also allow those who cover the media to do some reporting and uncover some information that could be unseemly. We may have seen the beginning of that with a...

Craig Ferguson’s Final ‘Late Late Show’ Was — Yeah, a Little Subdued

So it was the final episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night, and it was okay. Not really a big spectacle on the level of The Colbert Report wrapping up–although Ferguson wisely had his all-star romp (with different celebs rocking out to Dead Man Fall’s “Bang Your Drum”) at the start of the show. It was always kind of a tradition for Ferguson to wrap...

Maple Leafs attempt to use deodorant Zamboni; it gets banned

Only one organization in hockey is so remarkably snakebitten and incompetent that it could screw up a Zamboni. As any hockey fan would have guessed by the end of the last sentence, we are talking about the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs are the most profitable team in hockey despite the magnificent incompetence of not winning a Stanley Cup since 1967, but that doesn’t mean they...

Horsepower Meets Brainpower at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion

It’s common to see Go Pro cameras suction-cupped to vintage race cars at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, but one competition machine is different. It has not only several cameras affixed to its bodywork, but also a variety of aerials and is that a GPS antenna on its roof? That rumbling race car with the antennas means a Stanford University class is in session.  For...
