On this week's podcast, CHML's Scott Thompson wants to know about my recent trip to Los Angeles to cover the Warner Bros. International TV press tour. The big lesson for me was how excited some members of the foreign press were about shows that are off my radar here, such as Supernatural--which is apparently quite big in Brazil. Then shows that are of more interest in North America--especially sitcoms like the Big Bang Theory and The Middle--are not such a big deal in Germany and Sweden.
Scott brings up something I missed--Harry Smith's live colonoscopy performed on the Today Show earlier this week. And he repeats David Letterman's joke that during the whole procedure they were finally able to find Conan. HBO's tremendous new WWII miniseries The Pacific gets discussed, and I sneak in a story posted in greater detail below about Joel Gretsch and his Olympic moment with Captain Kirk. You can listen in here.
