TODAY SHOW: I Recommend My 6 Top Spring Must-See TV Shows

03.31.2017 | By |

 Me watching the screen with Kathie Lee Gifford and Craig Ferguson (Hoda is out on maternity leave) reminds me of Mystery Science Theater 3000. There were a few surreal moments about this segment. First, I loved the set design. It’s a lot more casual and real. I didn’t touch the popcorn because I knew I wouldn’t get a word out. Two, Craig Ferguson dedicating time to flatter me over my name is absolutely nuts. I guess Detective Rico doesn’t sound so bad, lol. That makes Christian Slater and Billy Bush who have done that. Really nuts. Three, hearing my podcast said out loud on national TV is a point of pride for me since it’s so difficult to market your show to a wide audience. Nevertheless, enjoy the spring shows I selected just for you and read below 5 trivia moments you don’t know about Netflix’s Five Came Back

TODAY: Must Things To See And Read For Thanksgiving Weekend!

11.6.2016 | By |

Of all the segments I have done for the TODAY show in the last 3 years, this was by far the most challenging and visually dynamic one I’ve done. The concept is simple: discuss three cultural topics, under 5 munutes, on three stages with three hosts. It sounds like an obstacle course, right? Lol. From what I was told, these types of segments have been done before but with THREE contributors. The fact that TODAY producers allowed me to do all three means they have tremendous trust in me which I highly appreciate them for it. Also, I found out it was the first time they were testing out the new format so whatever you see here has never been done before on their show. I’m very fortunate to have had the opportunity and for actually pulling it off!
