Cosmopolitan Answers a Few #BonerQuestions

If you have to ask about the hashtag in the headline, then you obviously weren’t paying Twitter attention yesterday.

AndyLevyRedEyeThe magazine’s social media team, led by Elisa Benson, used Twitter to curate questions for its minority male staff. (There’s no pun there; get your mind out of the gutter.)

Anyway… We’re not just saying this because it’s about the only question we can safely reprint here. Perusing the resulting article by Frank Kobola, we can honestly pick the following as our favorite FA(B)Q:

7. In what season of Growing Pains did Boner leave to join the Marines?

Season 4, Episode 13: “Semper Fidelis.”

Well done, Andy Levy! This accomplishment is something the Fox News commentator (pictured) may well want to consider adding to his Red Eye bio. (And again, please; get your mind out of the gutter. Red Eye and Growing Pains in this context are only TV show names.) To check out the 17 other questions deemed worthy by Kobola and co., click here.

Hack Talking Head Claims Hack Leno Joke Was His First

A “Leno Joke” is a term used by comedy writers for the first joke you think of and throw out…that Jay Leno will do that night. Leno is many things, but a joke stealer? No. His jokes are not difficult. They’re obvious jokes. His stage act is slightly edgier (think more dick jokes) but really he’s a white bread – middle-of-the-road – middle-of-the-country comedian. And he has an army of writers and people called “faxers” who write the jokes he uses. He pays for all of them. He has final approval of all the jokes he tells.

Enter Andy Levy, a guy you’ve never heard of, on Red Eye, a show no one (including Leno) has ever seen. Red Eye is an after hours gab fest on the Mecca of comedy and wit, the Fox News Channel.

Morning Media Menu With Red Eye‘s Andy Levy

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we are joined by Red Eye‘s “ombudsman” Andy Levy who tells us about his circuitous route to “surreal” late night TV. It was a route that began with a stint in the Army, followed by ten years in Hollywood, and finally took him through the bowels of the Huffington Post commenting system!

levy_2-11.jpgToday we even had a caller, from Red Eye‘s core group of “stone drunk college kids” who asked the “legitimate” question: Who’s the hottest girl you’ve ever had on the show?

We also discuss about two issues close to our hearts: Twitter and DTV. You can listen to the podcast live every morning at 9amET on BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. You can also subscribe to the iTunes feed of the podcast by clicking the “iTunes” button.
