David Frost Dies at 74
As a twentysomething American, my exposure to Sir David Frost is limited to little more than the Frost/Nixon movie. Since nothing I write will do the man justice, I’ll let BBC News do things properly. You can watch one of the interviews, where they talk about the Watergate scandal, that inspired Frost/Nixon below.
Sonny and Cher on ‘Late Night with Letterman’
On November 13, 1987, ten years after their divorce, Sonny and Cher appeared on Late Night with David Letterman. The duo stopped by for an interview and to sing their hit “I Got You Babe.”
During the interview, it is apparent that Sonny and Cher still care deeply for each other.
Richard Branson is The Man
Richard Branson is awesome. The British billionaire is the only person who can talk about a Pamela Anderson shaped cola bottle and legitimizing the mile high club and not come off as a total sleaze. Despite his antics, Branson has somehow managed to stay married to the same woman since 1989. In the clip below, Conan interviews Branson as Branson shamelessly flirts with Salma Hayek.
Cool TV Video of the Day: Jon Stewart Interviews the Mayor of London
Today’s video is a few months old, but it is still entertaining. In it, Jon Stewart constantly pesters London Mayor Boris Johnson about New York City’s soda ban. Soda loving New Yorkers will be pleased to know that London will happily take soda ban refugees.
Cool TV Video of the Day: The Most Censored American Talk Show Interview
On March 31, 1994, Madonna appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. Throughout the interview, Madonna brought up topics that are inappropriate for network television and cursed excessively. Because of Madonna’s language, the interview is the most censored in American talk show history with 13 bleeps (in this case audio drops) just for f*** alone.
Part 2 is after the jump.
Larry King’s Back
It has been over a year and a half since Larry King hung up his suspenders and retired from Larry King Live. Since retiring, the 78-year-old has expressed a desire to interview people again. His wish has been granted. The first episode of Larry King Now is up on YouTube. King’s first interview on his new show is with Seth MacFarlane.
Timothy Poe Admits He Fabricates Stories
America’s Got Talent contestant Timothy Poe spoke to WFAA, an ABC affliate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, admitting and apologizing for fabricating stories. However, Poe refused to say he lied. Instead, he gave excuses such as:
“I mean, as far as everything I said, I believe it wholeheartedly myself, but I feel like I’m going crazy.”
“I really don’t know right now what’s reality and what’s not reality.”
“I don’t feel like I’ve lied. That’s what’s driving me crazy, because I truly thought things have happened to me.”
In the past Poe has also claimed to have served in Iraq, but there is proof that he didn’t serve there. When asked about Iraq, he responded:
“I don’t know. I’m thinking, why have I for the last, over two years, believed things have happened to me and they might not have?”
In past interviews about his service, Poe did not stutter, so it is probable that it is not real.
I’m not a doctor, but it looks like Poe is a pathological liar. Poe even told WFAA that he knows he needs help and has already contacted the VA to make an appointment.
The video of the interview can be found here.
