“10” show on NBC10 is moving from the Loews hotel (No more dining room
background noise!) to a studio at the station on City Line Avenue at the
beginning of 2006. According
to a memo that was distributed to newsroom employees, the show will be
done in front of a live audience and include a live house band (no doubt
to be joined sometimes by co-host/musician Lauren Hart).
If Max Weinberg of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band can work for
Conan O’Brien, how about the Hooters for “10?”

Cahn’s Emmy-winning investigative report about an illegal bar, “Dirty
Little Secret” did not lose this year’s local Emmy to Tamsen Fadal’s
report “Illegal Slaughterhouse” as was previously reported.
“Dirty Little Secret,” was a report from last year.
Each year’s local winners are eligible for the national Emmy, the
following year. Another Luann
Cahn report, “Liposuction Doctor,” was nominated this year (which lost
to Fadal). And “Dirty
Little Secret” won the national Emmy.

ABC’s “Lost” is the dominant show in this timeslot. It averages over 20-million viewers a show and already chased NBC’s “E-Ring” to 8 p.m. NBC replaced it with “Martha Stewart: The Apprentice.” “Lost” lovers should watch “Lost,” live, but switch to Martha for the last five minutes to see her write her goodbye letter to the week’s loser. Also, tape “Veronica Mars” on UPN. It’s worth it. I want to be like Veronica when I grow up. Your other choices are new shows, “Criminal Minds” with Mandy Patinkin on CBS and the “Sex and the City” clone “Related” on WB. Currently, baseball is on Fox.
