Friday Scrapple

After listening to David Arquette on Howard Stern's radio show, I have one question:  Why didn't Courtney Cox dump this loser years ago?

What's up with all those newspaper political polls?  Every one says something different, and they've become more annoying than useful.

I know it's not over yet, but I expected more out of the Texas Rangers.

60's and 70's in late October = great weather.

Conan O'Brien says he's taking his old NBC bits to his new TBS show, even if he has to go to court to do it.  Translation:  Conan can't think of anything new.

Charlie Sheen's sitcom makes a ton of money for CBS.  Therefore, he gets away with bad behavior.  A spokesman said Sheen had an allergic reaction to some medication.  I'll have to remember that one.

The NBC sitcom "Outsourced" has slipped a bit from its first two episodes, but it's still better than most.  UPDATE:  I watched Thursday night's episode on Friday morning.  It was very good.

James MacArthur has passed away, one of television's greatest second bananas.  "Book him, Danno."

James Wall died Wednesday.  He was a stage manager for CBS News and Sports for decades.  You might remember Wall as Captain Kangaroo's neighbor, Mr. Baxter, one of the first, if not THE first African American characters on kids' TV.  Wall was 92.  In case you haven't guessed by now, I was a big Captain Kangaroo fan.

Scott is making toilet paper without the cardboard tube.  Isn't science amazing?

People went nuts when President Obama appeared on "The View."  I didn't hear any complaints about Obama's visit to "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central.

I wish Brett Favre quickly retires, and those NFL games in London (there's one this weekend) are a waste of time.

When did the Travel Channel become the Eating Channel?

I still can't resist walking through a big pile of leaves.
