Bill Cosby thinks I'm an asshole.

Recently, Dr. Cliff Huxtable himself visited our station. He was here to do an interview with our main anchor.

Now, I've always been a comedy nut - ever since I was a child. I told the Cos I owned "Bill Cosby: Himself" on cassette. I was very happy to meet such a legend.

Then the story takes a dark, tragic turn. Actually, it turned into a great story that I thought was pretty funny.

At the end of the interview - someone asked Mr. Pudding Pop where he gets his Philly Cheesesteaks(he's from Philly)... and the Cos couldn't remember. But he did shout out a phone #... 555-932-2252... rapid fire went this phone #.

So afterwards, trying to be funny, I say "Wow, you can remember that phone #... but you can't remember your favorite cheesesteak place." to which he replied, in his famous drawn out Cosby voice "That's my home phone number you asshole!!"

He was kinda joking... I think. Still, having a beloved entertainer call you an asshole is kinda cool.

I miss Johnny Carson

I was a huge fan of Johnny. And this clip reminds me of that.

Here, Carson visits the man he thought was the rightful heir to "The Tonight Show" - David Letterman. I know this has nothing to do with promotion - but it is still fun to watch.

I wish some cable net would acquire the rights to Johnny's old show and air it in it's original timeslot. Although I love Dave - there was nothing like falling asleep to Johnny, Ed and Doc.

This spot in disgusting!

Here is a spot from KXAS in Dallas - probably from the 90s.

Many stations have a "dirty restaurant" report and this spot uses humor to get the message across.
