Simon the Barker


More rambling from "Primetime in No Time" host Frank Nicotero:

"Barbara Walters Presents The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011": I live for this special every year! But this year, I can't believe Barbara Walters really thought the Kardashians were worthy of being called "Fascinating." Well, I guess the whole "famous-for-being-famous" thing is KIND OF fascinating. But I'll tell you what else was: Katy Perry's mom went on a date with Jimi Hendrix, and "Modern Family's" Eric Stonestreet (Cam) really dressed as the "Fizbo The Clown" character when he was a kid. Oh, and Simon Cowell's first claim to fame was producing a music video of dogs barking to music. Oh, if he only he had a "Simon" judging him way back when! Click on the following link to see what I mean.

"The X Factor": None of the semi-finalists blow me away when it comes to performing. Sure a couple of them can sing, but they don't have that aura that is supposed to come with somebody who has "The X-Factor," ya know? There are millions of songs in the world, and we got several songs we've heard on "Idol" and other shows repeatedly. Why was everyone so mad at Nicole last week? Rachel was the lowest vote getter so clearly America doesn't want her to win!!!

"America Caught on Camera": Funny show, right? A great writer named Michael O'Rourke actually does all the hard work watching the clips and writing the jokes. Other cities we'll have include: New York, Miami and New Orleans. Hope you liked it.
