The second podcast in one week! Apparently too much for Steven, who’s a no-show. Today’s theme: The celebrities are melting! Rosie leaving The View. “It’s the end for Barbara Walters and The View, don’t you think?” says Randy. “The View without Rosie is like pizza without cheese.” Who will replace her? Think. James brings up Alec Baldwin wanting to leave 30 Rock, but Fenton wants to talk about celebrity global warming, to wit, “The celebrity hothouse is getting one degree warmer; will the whole celebrity culture have a meltdown?” America gives back on American Idol. The special Earth Day 20/20. How did Cynthia McFadden get to China? She flew on a big fucking jet! Sheryl Crow in Africa. “I don’t doubt for a second that Leonardo wants to save the world,” says James, “but I want my celebrities to entertain me.” A lively discussion ensues re celebrities and their good deeds – selfless? Jordin. Phil. Chris. Unveiling the hanging elephant skin in the bedroom – hot? Desperate Housewives. Eva Longoria. E’s Jordan show. America’s interest in local British celebrites – tepid? Should there be a View-type show on another network? More replacement ideas for Rosie. Jonathan Adler on Oprah. Tori & Dean. Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter. Freak Show. James’ book tour schedule. Mark Ryden. The 1976 movie Network is “so World of Wonder,” says James, who just saw it. “It goes on a bit,” says Fenton. And then, suddenly, the podcamera careens around erratically, affording a view of the outer office, wanting to leave the room.
