ABC's John Stossel moves to Fox

john_stossel_20_20_ABCYou might think it's surprising that 20/20 anchor John Stossel is leaving ABC for Fox, but it's not really much of shock. It seems to me that there have been other high profile names that were once considered liberal firebrands -- Geraldo Rivera and Dennis Miller come to mind -- who've grown older and changed their stripes, finding a home at Fox.

Stossel, whom I recall as a staunch consumer reporter and a man who liked to tear down hypocrisy at every turn, has been a regular at ABC News for nearly three decades. Now, he's moving on to Fox Business Network where he'll have a weekly show, and Fox News where he'll make frequent guest appearances.

Idol's Ellen DeGeneres decision sounds eerily similar to MNF's Dennis Miller manuever

Ellen DegeneresNow regular Squad hoppers know I'm no drooling American Idol watcher, so maybe you think my opinions on this show are worth less than the U.S. dollar injected with swine flu.

But this move to bring in Ellen DeGeneres, a talk show host, actress and comedian, screams of another move in the world of TV commentating. A move that seemed well reasoned enough but went down in a glorious ball of blue and orange flames on live television.

Comedian and long time TV fixture Dennis Miller's very short stint as the color commentator for ABC's Monday Night Football screams of similarities louder than that guy in the Edvard Munch painting watching the Orson Welles sex tape. Great, Miller's voice is back in my head again. Thanks cha cha, I mean, Ellen.

Dennis Miller's HBO legacy on DVD

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 11th 2009 8:07PM
Dennis Miller: The HBO SpecialsWhen you think of HBO comedy specials, some big names come to mind. George Carlin sets the pace, with 14 specials, many of them classics. Robert Klein carved out the format in 1975 with the first one-hour special, and is now working on his ninth. Chris Rock has five, including last year's Kill the Messenger.

But do you think of Dennis Miller? If not, maybe you should. ON March 31, Standing Room Only Entertainment will release Dennis Miller: The HBO Specials, and there are seven of them on three discs, from 1988's Mr. Miller Goes to Washington to 2006's All In. Over the span of those seven hours, you can track the king of the obscure reference as his politics changed, from a few early swipes at Ronald Reagan to his lean a bit more right after 9/11.

Did you get Amne$ia?

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Feb 23rd 2008 3:38PM
AmnesiaYet another game show premiered last night. This time, it was NBC's Amne$ia hosted by Dennis Miller. This show has a similar premise than FOX's The Moment of Truth: contestants reveal secrets and facts about themselves in order to win money. The main difference between the two: Amne$ia does it tastefully while Moment goes for the ugliest and dirtiest secrets and somewhat doesn't care that your relationships go awry after the airings.

Dennis Miller gets a new show on some channel called Versus

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 5th 2007 4:23PM

Dennis MillerWhen Dennis Miller took over doing the color commentary on Monday Night Football several years back, fans of the show either loved him completely or hated him completely. You either really dug his arcane references and humor or you sighed a lot and wondered why he was in the booth (for the record, I don't really like football, so I didn't mind him in the booth at all). Now sports fans can relive those glory days!

Dennis Miller to host Grand Slam

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 6th 2007 3:02PM

dennis millerLet's give Dennis Miller credit: the man isn't afraid to try new things. He's been a comedian, an actor, a sports announcer, a political pundit (of sorts), a talk show host, and a radio show host.

Now, he's going to host a game show.

On August 7, Miller will host Grand Slam on the Game Show Network, a new series that will test players' knowledge in math, verbal skills and current events. The twist is that all of the contestants were big winners on other game shows. Jeopardy! champ Ken Jennings will appear on the new game show, along with past winners of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

Jon Stewart"Pull-Out Method": Minority Leader John Boehner is having a little trouble with benchmarks and contradictions. Plus, he's not fooling anyone when he says that his name is really pronounced "Baner". I'm still trying to work out how tropical fish worked into the House... and I have a sudden craving for a bucket o' peanuts and some Pork & Flag On A Stick.

"Showdown at Justice: Hereunder referred to as the 'Nonvoluntary Lawyer Disemployment Program' vis a vis certain events on or around 7 December 2006 (C.F. Appendix B, Codicil IX, Paragraph 7)": Alberto Gonzalez isn't doing so hot. So, what else is new?

Jon StewartMark Foley's blaming his scandal on alcohol? Holy crap. Jon's "Young Boyschlager" joke ("It's got real bits of boy in it!") was funny, but I think I like "Satan's breast milk" better. I also quite liked the word "catastrofuck"... I will have to use it sometime in the near future (perhaps in my midterm paper). Maybe Jon's feeling the pressure to coin some new words/phrases, especially after Stephen Colbert created and popularized "truthiness" and "Wikiality".

Dennis Miller & Hannity & Colmes

Dennis Miller on Fox NewsDennis Miller's gonna be with Fox News this fall, joining Hannity & Colmes, and will also be content provider and commentator for the network's website. Does this mean we will see Norm MacDonald one day pop up as a correspondent on Nightline? Or how about Tina Fey joining Anderson Cooper 360? Nah, just kiddin'; Dennis Miller has long ago moved over from the funny side into stone-cold punditry. Fox News is exactly where he belongs. I'd like to say "Dennis, Dennis we hardly knew you," but between his first talk show, his MSNBC CNBC show, his previous Hannity & Colmes guest stints and his two-season NFL tryout at ABC, we know him pretty well.

Hanks, Howard and Miller go on a ballpark tour

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 20th 2006 10:50AM
Dennis Miller, Ron Howard, Tom HanksOK, since all three of these guys have been on TV at one time or another, and I first heard about this on TV, I think it loosely can apply here. I just think this is cool:

When I was watching last night's Mets-Reds game on SportsNet NY, the camera showed Dennis Miller, Ron Howard, and Tom Hanks taking in the game, which was played in Cincinnati. The announcers mentioned they were taking a ballpark tour, and showed the massive luxury bus they were using. Well, this article confirms that. Turns out Hanks decided to take his buddies on a trip to seven parks to help celebrate his 50th birthday. They may not make all seven parks, it turns out, but they've already gone to three and will go to a few more.

Anyway, considering I try to go to a new-to-me ballpark every year (this year was U.S. Cellular in Chicago and Miller Park in Milwaukee), I absolutely love the fact that these superstars -- well, two superstars and Miller -- are doing this.
