A good way to lose your finger

Jimmy Fallon will make his semi-anticipated debut on NBC’s “Late Night” this Monday (March 2nd) with guest Robert DeNiro and house band The Roots, but CBS has a devious plan to steal hype and viewers from the new program.  Step 1: pair Paris Hilton with Craig Ferguson.

CBS has enlisted Mr. Ferguson and Ms. Hilton to serve as hosts for its Monday night lineup on March 2, the network confirmed… Mr. Ferguson and Ms. Hilton will appear during interstitial spots throughout CBS’s Monday lineup next week, trading comic riffs and hyping upcoming shows. The two will appear to be watching TV together during the segments, which will begin just before “The Big Bang Theory” and go through “CSI: Miami.”

In addition to appearing on CBS together during prime time, Ms. Hilton and Mr. Ferguson will team up later in the evening when Ms. Hilton is a guest on Mr. Ferguson’s “Late Late Show.”

I don’t know why CBS even thinks it’s competing with other networks.  All the other networks have ceded the “Don’t believe in evolution” demographic to CBS.  It’s really mastered the art of creating bland shit that people with no taste love.  Hey, Creating Bland Shit!  That works even better than the Crimes Being Solved network.
