Five Creepy Game Show Hosts

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 22nd 2010 2:02PM
Fergie Olver, host of the game show Game show hosts by their very job description creep me down to the bone. It's just in their nature. They have to go out of their way to make ordinary people look comfortable, even though they have never been on television.

Some housewife from Minnesota who is one number away from owning a new Ford Focus is so nervous, she could fly into an eye-bleeding seizure at any moment. Enter the host. He has to step in and calm her down before that happens.

However, there is a fine line between comforting someone and invading their personal space with the force of a German infantry. These are the hosts who put that creepy feeling you get whenever you hear the phrase, "Come on down!"

Yes, Trump still hates Rosie - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 13th 2007 4:42PM

Trump and RosieThe feud continues.

After Rosie O'Donnell announced on The View that she has been treated for depression (and that she hangs upside down every day), Donald Trump had to go and make a statement to one of the gossip shows about it (seriously, does The Insider have a crew stationed outside his office 24/7 in case he does something?). The video is after the jump, but here's the text of what he said:

"I have no compassion for Rosie...I can fully understand that when she looks in the mirror she suffers from depression."

O'Donnell wrote one of her poems about it on her blog, and if she comes up with more gems like "it has been my goal/for so long/to give a balding billionaire a boner," I might have to bookmark her site.

Hey kids! It's Warren Buffett!

warren buffett cartoonBillionaire investor Warren Buffett has some financial advice... for kids. He is going to provide the voice for a kids' cartoon series that provides basic lessons about finances and economics. Thirteen episodes of the cartoon, called The Secret Millionaire's Club, are already in production. The premise of the show is about a group of kids in Omaha who find a box of sports memorabilia that turns out to be very valuable. After making millions on the sale, the kids each become secret millionaires, investing their money based on advice from Warren Buffet. The company behind the project is DIC Entertainment and they're not sure yet if the cartoons will go directly to DVD or if someone will actually want to air them on television.

I'm not sure what age of kids these cartoons are supposed to target. One of the creators said it's important for kids to understand basic finance so, when they graduate high school, they don't make the mistake of getting a bunch of pre-approved credit cards. I agree. But, do kids watch this kind of stuff? Really?
