Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani Explains Why He Was Hosting AMC's 'Mob Week' (VIDEO)

Rudy GiulianiBefore he was elected Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani was a successful federal prosecutor and, as he told Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM on NBC), he was the scourge of the Mafia.

"I prosecuted hundreds of them, and thousands of Sicilian mafia people in the 1980s."

In fact, Giuliani became so familiar with the so-called "Five Families" in New York and their habits, that he's uniquely qualified for yet another career: Mob Tour Guide.

"Anybody want to take a tour," he joked, "I can take you on a Mob Tour of New York City." Now that sounds awesome!

Rudy Giuliani: Japanese People's Response to Disaster 'Really Remarkable' (VIDEO)

Rudy Giuliani was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), where he discussed the ongoing disaster in Japan.

Giuliani told Morgan that he goes to Japan on business quite frequently, so he wasn't surprised by how "enormously disciplined" the Japanese people have been in the wake of the earthquake, the tsunami and now the nuclear crisis. But the former New York city mayor is still impressed.

"If God forbid this had to happen anywhere, this is a country that can handle it," Giuliani said of Japan. "They're getting pushed to the point of ... it's really remarkable that they are able to handle it as well as they do. When you see the long lines of people lining up for water. No riots, no disturbances, no looting in any of these cities. Boy, you got a heck of a population in Japan."

Rudy Giuliani Wants Sarah Palin to Run for President ... So He'll Look Better by Comparison (VIDEO)

Appearing on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on CNN), former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani did something fewer and fewer Republicans are willing to do: He presented a scenario in which Sarah Palin could be elected president.

Giuliani acknowledged that Palin currently doesn't match up well against Obama in the polls, but he offered some historical context: "If we were looking at the 1980 presidential election, at this stage of that election Ronald Reagan would have looked too polarizing to beat Jimmy Carter ... Well, he turned out not to be too polarizing."

Given Giuliani's relatively rosy assessment of Palin's electoral chances, that means he would be less likely to run for president if Palin takes the plunge, right?

Actually, quite the opposite, as he told Morgan with a smile. In fact, Giuliani believes a Palin run would make it easier for a more moderate candidate like Giuliani to win the GOP primary. And suddenly Giuliani's comparison between Palin today and Reagan in 1979 seemed even more dubious -- and quite self-serving.

A Daily Show: January 31, 2008

Jon StewartEveryone knows that CNN can be a bit of a sensory overload, especially with its fancy new floating pie charts and whatnot. The flashiness took a huge jump when Situation Room first came around and showed off its needlessly numerous screens. At least some fun finally came of it, in the form of a totally random mix-up during recent coverage of John Edward's concession. Apparently, dancing Spongebob Squarepants makes everything better. That's right, no context for you.

A Daily Show: January 30, 2008

John OliverIn case you missed it, Jon made a very special appearance on The Colbert Report Tuesday night. The situation is already a bit confusing, and Jon's explanation of it didn't help much. Actually, don't even think about it too much. Just focus on the fact that Jon is a very tiny man. What he lacks in height, he makes up with well-played self-deprecation.

"Indecision 2008": Big news! John Edwards and Rudy Giuliani have both dropped from the race. Edwards fixed up his hair and delivered a speech to say good-bye and Giuliani, accompanied by his supporters and funny eyebrows, dropped out in Florida. He also got an earful from the media for putting all his eggs in the Florida basket, whatever that means.

Jon StewartJon kicked off the episode by running a few rounds of paper football. Not that I'm a big paper sports enthusiast, but I couldn't help but notice that he wasn't holding the football quite right. Jon, your story just doesn't add up. He then flubbed a gag with a toy robot, which was pretty precious, even though it didn't make much sense. What can I say? I like satirists and robots.

"Indecision 2008": The Democrats took on Nevada and the media took on the world's most cliche Las Vegas metaphors to cover Hillary Clinton's win. However, Jon had them all beat with his "bet on black" comment. Of course, Hillary's win was met with criticism and Bill Clinton defended her like he's already the First Laddie. And then that drew even more criticism. So it goes.

Timberlake gets slimed and so does Giuliani

Justin Timberlake is about to get slimed. Justin Timberlake was the host extraordinaire for this year's Nickelodeon's Kid's Choice Awards. Many of us have little reason to have watched the actual broadcast, but what good would the ceremonies be without a massive sliming of the host.

Speaking of slime, on the latest episode of The Amazing Race, the contestants were forced to eat a 24-inch Polish sausage before they could continue the race. What went in a yummy sausage, came out slime in this TV's Top 5! moment from last night's show.

Some get slimed, others make slime, but Barbara Walters asks the slimy questions...
