Watch more TV.

Anderson's on The Tonight Show tonight, and The View on Friday, which reruns on the 14th if you, say, sleep in the first time, or completely space on the date until noon, as I so often do.

De-bate Round-up!

A good down-home round-up of reviews, opinions, facts and lies about the CNN/Youtube Debates, just like Ma used to blog. Presented in no particular order, unless you count my bookmarks.

And there's probably more, but what news and reviews can compare with Tom Ford continually wooing Anderson? Probably none.

Check out the fun whirly website for the upcoming Planet in Peril HD special, being shown in October, according to TVNewser. It's fun, a spinny globe and seamless embedded video.

Unrelated, but of interest to some. It's been flying through the rumour mill that Thomas Roberts, the unfortunately gone from CNN Thomas Roberts is in talks with CBS, NBC, Paramount and Freemantle. It's also been said he's been auditioning for hosting gigs with certain unnamed game shows in LA. Hmm. Either way, I'm super excited to see what's going to happen next.

A Crawl.

Slow news life lately, so go enjoy the wallpapers over at CNN Observations. They are big and plentiful.

Come on.

Gawker has some video of the Paris Hilton snark going on last night on 360.

CNN has made a huge mistake letting their anchors cover the story this way. Whether they like it or not, it's news. People want to hear about it, even if you don't. Either cover it, and cover it fairly, or don't cover it at all. It's a slippery slope from making fun of Paris Hilton to Lou Dobbs-style airing of personal opinion every night. Let's not go there, please.

Oh, Rufus.

Disclosure: I love Rufus Wainwright more than almost anything in the world. I remember with disturbing clarity the first time I heard April Fools, the exact moment I bought Poses, the crippling joy when my best-friend-cum-partner asked if I liked that Rufus Wainwright guy.

So, my first reaction upon hearing Rufus had said this (via Queerty):
If they stay in the closet, they’re going to make a lot more money. I go to the same gym as Anderson Cooper. When I look at him lifting those 5-pound weights, it makes me think, He’s just trying to live his life and be all that he can be. But he still goes to the gayest gym in New York.
...was not really shock, anger, or even mirth but mostly OMFG THEY GO TO THE SAME GYM. I'm what you'd call "objective."

Gawker wants to know what, exactly, is the gayest gym in New York. Perez loves it. Page Six is all NUH-UH. But ASL has the prettiest pictures.

What a diva.

Not even Anderson, but Larry King. Via TVNewser:

And who else caught Larry's other dig at Anderson last night? He said something about how he'd be there for an hour, but Anderson would be there for three. It was pretty damn awkward.

The next debate is an experiment in web 2.0 meeting cable 1.0. It'll be moderated by Anderson Cooper, but the questions will be submitted via YouTube. Good luck with that, CNN.
