CNN's Rick Sanchez Freaks Out During Earthquake Coverage

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 1st 2010 1:31PM
Is there a worse news anchor than Rick Sanchez on TV right now? I can't think of one. He's over the top, arrogant, pushy, massively exploitative, and just unwatchable. I truly can't even listen to his voice. The tone, the cadence, the delivery... It makes me vomit a little bit in my mouth when he's on. I certainly don't want to have a "national conversation" with him. Thank God Shep Smith is on at the same time.

Here's Sanchez during the Chile earthquake coverage a few days ago. Savor the moment when he actually yells at the expert he has brought on. I think Jacqui Jerras just wants to get off camera somehow and hide in her office.

The Office is coming to Chile

The OfficeApparently, having versions of the show in France, Germany and the U.S. isn't enough. A new version of The Office is going to Chile. The Chilean version will star Luis Gnecco, whom I've never heard of but will undoubtedly become a household name in Chile soon if he isn't already.

With all these international versions of the show being broadcast, it's a wonder that Ricky Gervais wants to work again. I'm glad he does. I really enjoyed Extras.

I recall reading that each version of The Office in each country has certain characteristics reflective of that country's attitude towards work. I wonder what characteristics the one in Chile will have that will make it unique to that country?

The Amazing Race All-Stars: No Babies on the Race

charla; mirna(S11E04) We're already down to eight teams after last week's elimination of David & Mary from Kentucky. Now the race gets real serious because the weak teams have been weeded out. Plus, the field isn't so cluttered so we get to spend a little more time with each time. I loved how the teams went from saying they didn't care about Rob and Amber last week, to calling them "the team to beat" this week.

This week, the Racers flew from Chile to Argentina. The challenges weren't terribly impressive this week. One of the Detour options was super lame and the other was bad for poor spellers. Even though it wasn't very exciting to watch, it did change the entire race, putting the first placers (Rob & Amber) way back at the end of the pack.

My thoughts on the teams (AND SPOILERS) are after the jump:

The Amazing Race All-Stars: Beauty is Sometimes Skin Deep

(S11E02) This show has to be considered an aerobic exercise. Sure, I'm sitting on the couch, but my heartrate is always up when I'm watching The Amazing Race.

This week the teams are off to Santiago, Chile (they ended last week in Ecuador). We don't get to learn much about the country or any Chilean traditions. I like that part of The Amazing Race, so hopefully that tradition will return.

Warning: Spoilers after the jump!
