‘HuffPost Live': Fall TV


After a few scheduling conflicts, I made my HuffPost Live debut today, to talk about fall TV and a trio of my recent Adweek stories. First I spoke about Fargo, which as I wrote this week is the best TV show you’ll see this fall.

I then talked about The Walking Dead, and why AMC should prepare to end that show, even though they probably won’t.

Finally, we talked about Tuesday’s news that Donald Trump is going to host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, and why he is spending so much time on a network that cut professional ties with him in June.

We covered a lot of ground, and I look forward to returning to HuffPost Live soon.

Is Fargo the Best TV Show of the Fall?

‘Today’ Show: Trump Brand Taking Hits, While Trump the Candidate Gaining in Polls


So it turns out that in addition to making my NBC Nightly News debut last week, I also—surprise!—appeared for the first time on Today, during a Donald Trump piece the show did Friday morning. Katy Tur filed a new Trump story for the show, and used a different portion of the interview I’d done with her for that Nightly News story.


I was away for the holiday weekend, and it was a nice surprise to hear about the surprise appearance when I returned. (However, I should point out that I write for Adweek, not Ad Week.) Here’s the Today segment, in case you missed it (like I did). I pop up at the 1:26 mark:


Now I’m wondering which NBC program might use that interview next…

NBC Nightly News: Macy’s Terminates Contract with Donald Trump


While I’ve been on MSNBC and CNBC several times, I’d never made a media appearance on NBC proper—until today. I was interviewed on NBC Nightly News tonight for a segment about the Donald Trump’s latest antics and the fallout from Macy’s, NBC and Univision severing ties with him.


I’d written about the controversy on Tuesday. Thanks to Katy Tur for sitting down with me! You can watch the segment here; I pop up at the 1:29 mark:

It looks like I’ll be back at 30 Rock on Sunday for another TV appearance; more on that later in the week!
