Advanced Negotiations

That's what this article claims.

Also, even though this piece  contains nothing new or earth-shattering, I'm posting it because it comes from the UK. Although America has tried to school them for years, the British still have a very rudimentary, imperfect grasp on English. This means that they employ a ton of random bizarre witticisms, such as claiming that Alexis Glick was "poached" from her old job. Rule Brittania!

Sid Rosenberg finally got a job. I really liked Sid. Wish he was back in the NY area, but at least he's back on the air in Florida.

Now that they will apparently be televised by a NEW network, hopefully Imus can bring on some new and fresh guests to interview...

Out with the old, in with the new...

Al said...

lol...

maybe Imus can "poach" some of these stale, tired old guests that he regularly has on...

poaching kool, next will they be rustling?

CG said...

Glad to hear that Sid has found a job!

Ha, I can think of several guest appearances they could "poach," too. :) The British are awesome.

Bernard McGuirk alert!

Bernie will appear on 'Hannity' tonight...he will be on the panel, which usually comes on in the last half-hour of the show.

...maybe Bernie will do one of his increasingly popular IITM 'Bernie Briefings'

I've been traveling a lot and missed a few weeks. Does anyone know why Sid is no longer doing his spot on IITM? I'm happy to hear he has a job. Also very glad that the show might go to FBN--where more of us can watch it.

I didn't like Karith at first, but after going to a few remotes and seeing how darn nice she is, I definitely changed my mind. I miss her and her stories.

Hopefully Karith will end up back on air ?Where? She has an impressive resume now, she also worked for the View too right?

CG said...

Good for Bernie! Thanks for the heads-up, I caught it this evening. He did a great job.

One of my favorite Karith stories was about a certain guy that her friend had been seeing. The two had really, really hit it off on their first date. They got along so well that when he picked her up on their second date, the guy asked her if she wanted to meet his parents. "Sure!" she said. And the guy drove her away...to the GRAVEYARD.

It will be a long, long time before I forget that one. And, let's be honest, I think we've all had a date like that

Imus thought Sid okay, but not much worth to the show...in other words, he had no place for him. He tried having Sid watch NASCAR, which Sid hated, and Sunday Talk Shows, which Sid Hated... so Imus stopped using him...which Sid hated.

DL said...

I kind of took it as Imus just trying to help Sid out for a bit and keep him "noticed" while he tried to find a job. Never thought Sid would be around long.

Last and final time Imus fired Sid was for making fun of breast cancer. Maybe Imus realized the "hypocricy" of that firing.

Best interview Imus did this week was today, with Slingblade(aka Robio)...

Slingblade Carl was one of the funniest bits to date.. MORE!!

Al said...

Imus' ratings would only get better if he would do more Slingblade Carl kind of interviews!!

CG said...

Yay Carl! :) I'd forgotten the whole subplot about marrying the chicken.

"Hrmmmmm, hrmmmmm, yessir"
