I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango: Jan. 5-9

In late night, talk show, Uncategorized on 01/05/2009 at 3:38 am

Hello chickens! Happy New Year and you are WELCOME; I knew you’d be grateful that I spared you from my best of the year lists and other tiresome proclamations. Why would I bother when there are so many really smart people out there who’ve already done it better?

But on to business. The roundup of talk-show guest lists is a little lifeless this week. Kiefer Sutherland is stumping for 24, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway are promoting Bride Wars and Glenn Close is chatting up Season 2 of Damages. I guess everyone else’s trying out new hairdos and gaudy dresses as the days tick down to Sunday Jan. 11’s Golden Globe Awards. But at least there are very few repeats. And yes, we are thankful. Thank god the holidays are over.

Oh, and if you’re wondering who the sam hill I am, may I present Denise Duguay, author of the Montreal Gazette’s TV blog, Inside the Box, located at montrealgazette.com/tv   I’m spreading the word by duplicating posts here at my personal TV blog. So you can catch me here or there.
