Irish Journalism Grad Follows in Clark Kent’s Fictional Footsteps

We want to give newly installed Irish Central writer Sean Dunne a very hearty FishbowlNY winter’s welcome. And thank the makers of 1993-97 ABC-TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman for inspiring the 24-year-old Master’s journalism grad to make his way across the pond.

In a delightful weekend essay about his move over the holidays to NYC, Dunne makes joking reference to the Dean Cain-Teri Hatcher show and explains how he came to choose Irish Central out of a number of different, international opportunities. Beneath a headline and sub-headline that, rather refreshingly, refer to the author in the third person:

Most young media graduates are faced with the reality of working for free at present in Ireland, in what can only be described as the dreaded “I” – internships.

I was unsatisfied at this prospect and decided to take matters into my own hands. I decided I was going emigrate.

Oprah Scoops Hollywood – Again

Later today, Atlanta-based mogul Tyler Perry will share what he describes as the most “in-depth and revelatory interview” he has ever done, providing details of early childhood sexual abuse at the hands of several men and one woman. But the setting for this tearful conversation is not the pages of Vanity Fair, the light bulb map backdrop of Larry King Live or the punchy paragraph scroll of TMZ.com.

Rather, it is today’s episode of Oprah, where host Oprah Winfrey, in her 25th and final season, continues to lead the way with substantive film and TV industry related coverage. Even a recent episode with Love Story co-stars Ali McGraw and Ryan O’Neal, their first on-camera reunion in 20 years, was more revelatory and satisfying than most of what passes for west coast breaking entertainment news. Especially intriguing were repeat examinations by the pair of the seminal 1970 movie’s signature line, ‘Love means never having to say you’re sorry.’ O’Neal, a regular target of the tabloids, also spoke movingly about his relationship with the late Farrah Fawcett.

Conan’s Having a Rough Go in LA

rs743conan-o-brien-rolling-stone-no-743-september-1996-posters.jpgWhoever thinks New York is tough can go suck a Hummer tailpipe. This is a mean town and we need no further evidence than what’s happened to Conan O’Brien. He was at the top of his game in New York. LA seduced him with the Tonight Show promise. He moves his staff and himself to Tinsel Town only to find out the diva isn’t going away quietly, he’s rewriting all of television to accommodate his non-retirement. Conan is then, even with the move and the dream job – still second fiddle to a lukewarm 80′s relic.

And then a Desperate Housewife, tries to crack Conan’s skull open.

Then Jay Leno get’s moved back and Jeff Gaspin cuts Conan’s show by half. So Conan’s Tonight Show, after the winter Olympics, is supposed to start at 12:05. Which Seth Meyers pointed out on SNL, it means the Tonight Show will air when it’s no longer tonight.

And now the siren song of Fox is calling Conan. And according to the also Rupert Murdoch owned New York Post, he’s considering it.

The point is, no matter how famous or successful you are, in LA, you’re not beyond getting jerked around.

John Edwards: The Story Gets Weirder

2697678100_5bcd916b41_m.jpgEarlier we reported that the National Enquirer is leading the journo pack on a story about an alleged affair by John Edwards.

Well, now Franklin Ave. notes that if that affair actually happened, it happened in front of 30 million reporters (give or take a few) who were staying at the hotel for the Television Critics Association Press Tour.

Franklin Ave. seems to take umbrage with Edwards gall, but we’re more annoyed at our media brethren. A whole hotel of reporters whose job it is to watch TV and the only people to “catch” Edwards is the National Enquirer? Sigh. Well, I hope your interviews with Teri Hatcher were worth it.
