Willie Geist’s ‘Freak Show’ Party

TVNewser went to Willie Geist‘s party Friday night to celebrate his book, “American Freak Show.” Geist is the Co-Host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and host of “Way to Early with Willie Geist.”

Some of the notable guests were the author’s father, CBS correspondent Bill Geist, president of MSNBC, Phil Griffin, as well as MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough, and Tamron Hall, Arianna Huffington, former GE CEO Jack Welch, billionaire Mort Zuckerman, CNBC anchor Erin Burnett, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, NBC News president Steve Capus, and MSNBC political analyst Mark Halperin.

Fun, casual, and family-oriented, the party mimicked the spirit of the book, which is a satirical look at American politics and pop culture. In the basement of PJ Clarke’s, Geist’s friends, family, and colleagues ate everything from mini burgers and steak to oysters and lobster rolls.

TVNewser’s video is after the jump with comments from Geist’s dad, Hall, Scarborough, the author himself, and Geist’s uncle Bert. Read more

Larry King on Glenn Beck – “That Don’t Impress Me”

Daily Beast’s Lloyd Grove attended last night’s party celebrating Larry King‘s new memoir, “My Remarkable Journey.” Among those in attendance, Anderson Cooper, Mort Zuckerman, Phil Donahue, Regis Philbin and Barbara Walters whose guest earlier in the day on “The View” came up in conversation.

Meanwhile, Larry was talking to Barbara about overwrought Fox News personality Glenn Beck‘s uncomfortable appearance on The View earlier in the day.

“Did you hear that he didn’t do his show today? They said he had a cold?” Barbara said happily.

“Glenn Beck – that don’t impress me,” Larry scoffed. “You know what Jackie Gleason told me once? He said, ‘I can put a young couple having intercourse on the air – and I’ll win the night.’ See what I mean?”

For the record, Beck sounded crappy with the cold when he called in to his show last night, with fill-in host Judge Napolitano. The clip is after the jump.

And back on the radio today, still sounding half-crappy with the cold, Beck demanded an apology from Walters. Which leads us to this poll:
