The Spaghetti Cat Clarification

This was from our tip box:

Spaghetti cat: You say it “… isn’t trivializing for a news show.” It’s not a news show. Stop confusing most Fox programming for news. From the show’s own description: “The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet features a unique mix of celebrity interviews, audience participation and engaging segments about topics relating to viewers’ lives. Hosts Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy lend their dynamic personalities to discussions about hot topics in pop culture; family-focused subjects such as women’s health, fashion, parenting and relationships; and general entertainment. The program is broadcast live from the FOX studios in New York, Monday through Friday.

Yeah, you caught us. We were confusing Mornings with Mike and Juliet with Good Day LA – both of which we used the term ‘news show’ as sarcastically as possible. Mike and Juliet have run promos where their is late breaking ‘news’ coverage. Or we could be confusing it with Maury.

Our sister site TVNewser noted that there is now the Spaghetti Cat page on Cafe Press.

So now it’s official: more people have seen the bleep photo than the show it came from.

It’s The Simpsons to The Tracy Ullman Show.

Fox’s New Morning Show — How They’ll Cover the Stories That Mean the Most to Los Angeles

huddyjerrick.jpgFox is adding a new national morning show to its roster at 9 a.m. on Jan. 22, when it plucks Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy from FOX News Channel’s Dayside, and gives them the The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet.

This is a NY-based show, but both TV personalities have been reporters in L.A. in their past lives: Jerrick hosted a news show for 10 years in the 80s and raised his daughters in Pacific Palisades, while Huddy reported for KADY-TV in Ventura early in her career.

And both tell FBLA that they have a strong affinity for this fair (OK, these days, freezing) land of ours. But you can’t trust the media. So we put these talking heads to the test, asking them to riff — morning show style — on the stories that matter most to Angelenos. Here’s what they said:

Lindsay Lohan: “I would make this take as a father as two young ladies in their 20s, and I would be rooting for her. She’s got a wild family,” Jerrick says.

Huddy chimes in: “The mom, from everything I’ve heard, there doesn’t seem to be anything reigning the girl in. How is she supposed to turn out when she has mom and dad encouraging chaos?”

Jerrick: “Right.

Huddy: “When Britney Spears had a picture taken of her, holding her baby in the front seat, Mike and I were on air, dissing her. Her father called our control room, distraught. And it brought me down to reality. This is a human being. It was a wake-up call. She’s a kid.

Jerrick: “A lot television has turned young people’s lives into a sport. I hope she comes out of it well.”
