Create Your Own Adventure

We're too busy and too tired to write today. Therefore, we're declaring this "Audience Participation Thursday." Here's the plan: we'll supply the topic we'd write about if we had time; you write the smartass observations and nasty remarks in the "Comments" section. Here we go:

• Hair Crisis Mussing Omaha's Female Anchors: Deb Ward, Calvert Collins and Tracy Madden. If you saw 'em last night, you'll know what we mean.

• According to Sean Weide's Reader columm, WOWT weekend morning anchor Andrea McMaster returns from 14 weeks of maternity leave this Saturday morning.

• Weide also reports that KPTM is delegating freelance reporting chores to another beauty pageant contestant. This one is named Suzy Stark and was a Miss Nebraska runner-up.

• Finally, an alert reader tells us that KETV may debut its new weekend morning newscast on Saturday—a week or two earlier than previously indicated (TV listings notwithstanding). Apparently if we get a big snowstorm on Friday or Friday night, they'll roll it out. That's what we've told, anyway.

That oughta keep you busy.

This isn't one of the topics up for discussion, but wanted to ask for a second opinion.

How many of you feel that if you put a turban and robe on Elicita "Omarosa" Hammond, that she would resemble Osama Bin Laden?

Anyone, Anyone?

It did look like Tracy Madden tripped on an electrical wire.
Did anyone else happen to notice that, during their 6:00am intro to weather this morning at KM3, CT was back in the Weather Lab. While he was talking, one screen behind him had the Threat Tracker and the other had animated cartoons. Because I'm not well-versed in cartoons, I couldn't tell you which ones they were, but I could point it out if I saw them. Obviously CT is less worried about impending snow and more worried about keeping up on his cartoons.

I have commented before that Channel Three's women look like they forgot their combs on senior picture day for those horrible pictures on the website.

Tracy Madden was entertaining. While Brian Mastre was talking, she would stare at the camera, followed by a quick turn to her right, stare into space just off camera, quick turn all the way to her right, stare at the big BM, quick turn back to camera, stare, and repeat the cycle till the big BM finished. With her fresh from the wind tunnel swept back look, it reminded me of a Leghorn rooster, looking for sustenance. Sadly, she did not peck at the Pornstache's flower.

KETV is doing a "practice show" this Saturday morning. IT will not hit the air until 1-28

Miss Nebraska Runner Up. Isn't there like 4 runner uppers. Not counting the people who don't make it to the top 10.

KETV is starting a Weekend show.....when will WOWT start a show to compete with Ben Gray?

I know they can bring back the one and only "Queen Pat" with panelist like....well ok it will be her telling us how good she is for 30 minutes. Not sure she could converse with anyone for 30 minutes. So what do you think, Ben vs. Pat…..My money is on Ben

Tracy Madden and former Styx guitar player Tommy Shaw were separated at birth.

6 needs to give the anchor spot to Courtny Gerrish (sweaters required) and let the other channels drop from our airwaves.

Forget the hair...what's with the 1980's suit with the oversized jacket, huge shoulder pads, neon colors and huge buttons??

Since you brought up wardrobes, someone needs to stop Julie Cornell from raiding the costume department of the Designing Women set.

Well let's see since I'm in San Francisco and don't have access to Omaha's news I'll just make some stuff up.

"Andrea McMaster has never looked better. She still that healthy glow of a pregnant woman and her breasts are the size of zeppelins."

"I'm not saying that Calvert Collins has put on weight, but when she moons someone, the tides change."

"Suzy Stark is really thin, when she turned sideways to the camera she disappeared. They had to put ankle weights on her so she wouldn't blow out of the studio."

"And speaking of blowing out of the studio, what's the deal with Tracy Madden? She really was rushing through the news last night, some where to go Tracy?"

How's that? Snarky enough for you?

Hey hosh, that's First Warning Weather Lab to you, sucka!

I hear you unlstu. Madden would be better at her job if she wore sweaters more often than the mom-look blazer.

Saw Larry "Calvert" Collins in the lobby of the Omaha Playhouse, looking every bit like a business girl at a convention. Oh wait.....isn't that how she got into the biz to begin with?

almost forgot...this morning Ann Curry refered to the now late Wilson Pickett as the legendary soul singer Wilson Puckett. Genius.

Watch the "other" 42 cast the other night. I think I giggled as much as C.C. did. It's interesting especially when they cut away for a report from some female who looked like she just took off her helmut. The guys with no ties, come on, and this is something the "younger demo" is going to watch on a regular basis. Heck, are they not out somewhere at that time each night anyway?
