For the fourth time in four years, CBS3 will be unveiling a new show at 9 a.m. in the fall to compete with the dominant "Regis and Kelly" on 6ABC.    “The Larry Elder Show” was the latest show to fail.  Before “Elder,” “Living it Up with Ali & Jack,” only lasted one season, and the year before it was “Crossing Over with John Edward.” 


It would be great if someone revived the 70's game show "Tattletales." 

Here are a few Hollywood couples that could participate for the red, blue, and banana sections – Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, Marg Helgenberger and Alan Rosenberg, Courtney Cox Arquette and David Arquette, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, Jane Kaczmarek and Bradley Whitford, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, and Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete.


Meanwhile, Lauren Hart celebrates her first anniversary as the co-host as “10.”  Though both Hart and co-host, Bill Henley are pleasant, and separately look good, after a year they continue to dress as if they are from completely different planets, as Henley continues with his conservative weatherman look, and Hart continues with her flashier musician look. 


Speaking of married couples, “It’s Your Call with Lynn Doyle” will be giving away an all expenses-paid wedding for a lucky couple.  The wedding will air live on Thursday, November 17 at 9 p.m. on CN8.  


When “Howard Stern Show” regular Artie Lange was off the show last week, it led me to think about how cool it would be if Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling returned to the show.  Not because Martling was so funny, but it was great how the rest of the crew made fun of Jackie the entire four-plus hours of each show.


The Mid-Atlantic Emmy nominations will be announced Wednesday.  Once again, expect many nominations for Comcast SportsNet and CN8.  The reason is because Comcast encourages its employees to submit entries.  Conversely, top-rated 6ABC discourages its employees to submit entries.  Winners will be announced in September.


Former WCAU-10 news reporter Andrew Glassman is the executive producer of the fall NBC series “Three Wishes” with Amy Grant. Glassman also is a producer of “Average Joe.”  Though he’s now behind the camera instead of in front of the camera, Glassman is the voice-over guy for “Joe.”
