Crowd Went Wild

Fox1 Sports’ The Crowd Goes Wild from a few years ago at Chelsea Piers studio. Today, Regis Philbin at 86 the former Playboy mansion and Mar-A-Lago hangout bff of “The Trumpster” as he called him, is low profile in L.A. Journalist Jason Gay still has a great sports column in the Wall Street Journal. Trevor Pryce. Don’t know. Michael Kosta is killing it with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s Daily Show. Georgie Thompson married Sir Ben Ainslie, UK olympic sailing champ, and had a baby girl. Katie Nolan went to ESPN and is making seven figures there.

Miss them together on that show.

Fox1Sports. Ailes’ answer to ESPN. Reege at 81 is captain of Crowd Goes Wild. Tonight’s premier a bit rocky. Oscar de la Hoya guest notwithstanding. Philbin is best as raconteur without a script. He can’t navigate producers in his ear and on-air surprises. But, some of it was fun. It’s a gab-fest with requisite eye candy. A British babe and a techie bimbo. Guys include a superbowl star, a former tennis pro comedian, and WSJournalist. I’d watch it again. But, I’m an easy sports slut. From BoSox beaning A-Rod, UK football, NFL to U.S. Open. It’s launch season.

On CNN, The Lead has hit its stride. Snarky, current, in-depth investigative news. Jake Tapper should join Anderson at night. Wolfie’s past his prime time.

Awaiting post-Labor Day getaway, cooking’s become blender-centric. Our NorthShore fishmonger, Mike, suggested a remoulade sauce for the shrimp we bought. It turned out great. A tangy spread for sandwiches, too. RecipeDetours.
