LAT in 90 Seconds

sonsofhollywood.jpgRich People Are More Interesting Than You, Part XXVII: The sons of Rod Stewart and Aaron Spelling are working with someone Robin Abcarian dubs a “baby mogul” on a reality show about — being the sons of Rod Stewart and Aaron Spelling and a baby mogul.

But still, good on CNN for premiering an actual news show on Jan. 20.
