If you missed the big, um, event last week, Harry Smith had a colonoscopy live on 'The CBS Early Show.' So of course David Letterman had to have him come on last night and do the Top Ten List for the "Top Ten Things Going Through Harry Smith's Mind During His Televised Colonoscopy."

Next week, Homer Simpson will undergo a colonoscopy

Homer SimpsonThe Simpsons is about to go some place it has never gone before: Homer Simpson's colon.

According to The New York Post, Homer is going to undergo a colonoscopy this season. Actually, it's not going to be part of the long-running FOX show, it's going to be part of the multi-network cancer benefit on September 5 titled Stand Up To Cancer. The Post even quotes a line from the segment that already has me laughing, from Marge: "There's his wedding band! He told me he was having it polished!" Which begs the question, do Marge and Homer even wear their rings?

Stand Up To Cancer is an ambitious telethon that will air on all four networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX). The three network news anchors (Katie Couric, Charles Gibson, and Brian Williams) even went on the morning shows several weeks back to promote this rare display of unity between the networks.

Hopefully Homer will be clean as a whistle, despite 40 plus years of eating fried foods and donuts.

More changes at CBS: Katie's doc hired

Katie CouricThey're not just changing the sets and the theme music over at The CBS Evening News, they're also changing the personnel. In a move that is becoming more and more controversial, CBS has gotten rid of medical reporter Elizabeth Kaledin and hired Katie Couric's personal doctor, Jonathan LaPook. Kaledin says she is "heartbroken" by the move.

LaPook is not only Katie's doc, he's also the son-in-law of veteran TV producer Norman Lear.

Maybe we could use a new song for Katie, sung to the theme from one of Lear's shows, Maude:

Miss Couric had a colonosopy
She didn't care if the whole world looked
CBS got rid of Liz Kaledin
And then they hired Dr. Lapook

Hey, I never said I was Cole Porter.
