Dance Talk with Carrie Ann

Less than three months after Julie Chen departed The Talk, the CBS chatfest has found her permanent replacement in Carrie Ann Inaba.
The Dancing With the Stars judge will officially fill Chen’s seat beginning in January, according to our sister site Variety. A CBS representative declined to comment.
Inaba has served as a guest host multiple times since Chen’s departure from the show in September. Chen had stepped down from the series after husband Les Moonves was fired as CEO and chairman of CBS, following multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against him. (Chen will, however, continue to host the network’s reality staple Big Brother.)

Additional Musical Performances by Robin Thicke, Florence + the Machine, Jason Aldean, Juanes and Why Don't We
Celebrity Appearances by Ken Jeong, Kenan Thompson and The FOX NFL SUNDAY On-Air Team, Including Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan and Jimmy Johnson
Emmy(R) Award-winning personality, producer and talk show host Steve Harvey returns this holiday season to host FOX'S NEW YEAR'S EVE WITH STEVE HARVEY: LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE, once again alongside Emmy(R) Award-winning journalist and TV personality Maria Menounos. The second annual live broadcast special, airing from the heart of New York City's famed Times Square, airs Monday, Dec. 31 (8:00-10:00 PM and 11:00 PM-12:30 AM ET LIVE CT/MT/PT tape-delayed), on FOX.
Harvey will count down to 2019 with an unmatched, star-studded three-and-a-half-hour primetime celebration, featuring an electrifying musical performance by 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Sting. The live event also will feature performances by hit artists Robin Thicke, Florence + the Machine, Jason Aldean, Juanes and Why Don't We. Additionally, the special will include celebrity cameo appearances by THE MASKED SINGER's Ken Jeong, comedian Kenan Thompson and FOX NFL SUNDAY commentators Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan and Jimmy Johnson. Additional performers and celebrity guests to be announced.
Last year, Harvey led an incredible countdown to the New Year, which included performances by music legends Neil Diamond and Celine Dion, hit artists Maroon 5, Macklemore with Skylar Grey, Backstreet Boys, Flo Rida and many more. Harvey also officiated a surprise live wedding for Menounos. The special marked an all-time high for a FOX New Year's special, averaging 8.5 million total viewers.


Play favorites much, Adam Levine? When The Voice coach’s two remaining team members, Reagan Strange and DeAndre Nico, found themselves in the Bottom Three with Team Blake Shelton’s Dave Fenley in Tuesday’s Top 10 Results Show, the former was too ill to sing for the Instant Save. Yet viewers were still allowed to cast their votes for her. Which was bad enough… and then Adam went and made it so. Much. Worse.
When the Maroon 5 frontman should’ve been discussing DeAndre’s performance with host Carson Daly, he instead spent most of his time campaigning for votes for Reagan. Yes, Adam expressed his typical confusion as to why DeAndre was in the Bottom Three and mentioned that he’d sung “like a champ.” But the emotional plea that he made on Reagan’s behalf was unreal.
There is an unbelievably talented little girl right now who is not able to fight for her position on this show,” he said, mentioning that he has two daughters himself. “The thought of breaking her heart by not urging everyone to give this girl a shot to go and redeem herself next week would be too far beneath me.”

We'd like new features on Game Show Live! And one of them is.....

Rachel Reacts. Where Adorkable Rachel reacts to.........................................................................something.

Ho Ho Ho, honey!

Good news, everybody: “The war on Christmas is over — officially!” This joyous announcement is made Friday atop RuPaul’s Drag Race Holi-Slay Spectacular (VH1, 8/7c), as Mama Ru welcomes eight fan-favorite queens back to the workroom to compete for the first-ever Christmas Queen crown.
Eureka, Jasmine Masters, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, Mayhem Miller, Shangela, Sonique and Trixie Mattel are ready to rumble in TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek from the holiday smackdown, but not before getting a special message — in song, naturally — from the mistress of ceremonies. “My beautiful queens, I’m thrilled we’re together to create a new holiday tradition to share with our Drag Race family around the world,” she tells the eight hopefuls.

A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS - THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY will be broadcast Friday, Dec. 21 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Host LL COOL J will introduce inspirational stories about children adopted from foster care, and Gwen Stefani, Train and Lukas Graham will each perform. Highlights from the Grove's annual tree-lighting ceremony, including a performance by Andy Grammer, will be featured during the special.
For the last two decades, the award-winning special has raised awareness for the hundreds of thousands of children in foster care and changed the lives of a generation of foster children. The special features uplifting stories of adoption from foster care, enhanced with performances by today's most popular artists.
The entertainment industry's top names have taken part in this poignant special over the past 20 years, including Maroon 5, Muhammad Ali, Candice Bergen, Justin Bieber, Mary J. Blige, Kate Capshaw, Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child (BeyoncΓ©), Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow, Jamie Lee Curtis, Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, Celine Dion, Melissa Etheridge, Rascal Flatts, Jamie Foxx, Morgan Freeman, Josh Groban, Faith Hill, Dustin Hoffman, Jennifer Hudson, Enrique Iglesias, Carole King, Miranda Lambert, John Legend, Adam Levine, Ricky Martin, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Katy Perry, Dennis Quaid, Rene Russo, Martin Sheen, Ed Sheeran, Martin Short, Steven Spielberg, Gwen Stefani, Rod Stewart, NSYNC (Justin Timberlake), Carrie Underwood, Bruce Willis, Henry Winkler and Stevie Wonder.
Many families that have adopted from foster care have been featured on A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS since it began. Over 90 percent of the adopted foster children featured on the show have graduated from high school and gone on to follow their dreams of college, advanced degrees and successful careers, including nursing, teaching, social work, legal counsel, business, construction and the military. Many have started happy families of their own.
Three of the stories featured on this year's show are updates on families who were featured previously. They include:
Farmakis Family - Elkhorn, Wis. (Featured in 2009)
Minuette and younger sister, Josette, had a brutal childhood. "Growing up, it was hard because our mother was a drug addict," says Josette. "We didn't have food, and we were both physically abused." Eventually taken into foster care, the sisters were separated and lived in eight different homes before they were adopted by Dan and Angie Farmakis in 2007. Currently, Josette, 25, is following her dream of becoming a nurse. "Our parents looked past the trauma we'd gone through and saw us for who we really are. It feels like I've always been their daughter," she says. Minuette, 27, is living her dream of working as a social worker at the same agency that placed her and her sister with their family. "Working with kids like us in foster care is not only a privilege, it's an honor," she says.
Felipe and Rafael Mosqueda - Marathon, Wis. (Featured in 2002)
Brothers Felipe and Rafael were desperate to stay together and running out of time. By ages 15 and 12, the boys had lived in more than seven foster placements and were considered unadoptable. "My brother and I were on the verge of being separated, and that was the scariest thing imaginable," says Felipe. "When we met these boys, I knew we could make such a difference in their lives, and we adopted them in March 2002," says Erika Albrecht. Today, Felipe and Rafael are both married with children and have successful careers. "Our parents raised us with so much love. My brother and I wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for adoption," says Felipe. "My brother and I were best man at each other's wedding, and my wife and I have talked about adopting in the future," says Rafael.
Oden Family - Los Angeles (Featured in 2015)
Kenneth and Evette Oden took a leap of faith and saw potential in two foster children who were born exposed to drugs. "When we first met Kyle, I remember holding him really close to my chest. He looked right in my eyes, and I just knew that he was my son," says Evette. "About a year later, we got a phone call that there was a little girl who needed immediate placement," says Kenneth. "The bond we felt with Kynnedy was just as strong." Kyle, now 20, took honors classes in high school and earned an academic scholarship to the University of Pennsylvania. Kynnedy, 19, is a sophomore at San Francisco State University.
The following family is being featured on the special for the first time:
Pascucci Family - Syracuse, N.Y.
"If I wasn't adopted by my parents at 17, I wouldn't be where I am now," says Ethan Pascucci. "I lived my early childhood with a parent who was a drug addict. I was 9 when my stepfather was stabbed to death in the home where I slept. My journey into foster care began that night." John Pascucci had been in Iraq for 15 months as a combat engineer. "When I would see a child waving to us at one o'clock in the morning, it made me think every child, no matter how old they are, needs the love and security of a family," he says. He and his wife, Karen, decided to adopt from foster care. "Our original plan was to adopt a 9 to 12-year-old girl, but we fell in love with a 16-year-old boy who was 6'3"," says John. "I was finally looking at parents who would love me for a lifetime, and that changed everything," says Ethan. He began taking AP and honors classes and signed up for crew. He became a star rower in high school and was awarded an athletic scholarship to Syracuse University.
Children Waiting
Currently, there are more than 438,000 children in foster care in the United States. The inspirational "Children Waiting" segment gives voice to these forgotten children by creating an intimate portrait of their hopes, their dreams and their wish for a "forever family."
The special is presented in association with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Children's Action Network.
Wendy's founder Dave Thomas, who was adopted, established the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in 1992. It is dedicated to dramatically increasing the adoptions of children in North America's foster care system.
The Children's Action Network was founded in 1990 by leaders in the entertainment industry in order to harness the power of the entertainment media on behalf of children. The special is a part of CAN's National Adoption Campaign to raise awareness of the joys of adopting and to find homes for the children who are waiting.


Chef Bobby Flay has signed a 3-year exclusive deal with Food Network, which will bring us more “Beat Bobby Flay” as well as new series “The Flay List.”
Under the terms of his new deal, Flay will also develop and produce additional series through his Rock Shrimp production company.
“The Flay List” will star Bobby and his daughter, Sophie. It is set to premiere in spring 2019.

Shark Tank," the critically acclaimed and multi-Emmy(R) Award-winning entrepreneurial-themed reality show, today announced the addition of brand-new guest Shark, Drybar founder Alli Webb. She joins the already announced lineup of new guest Sharks including Charles Barkley, Matt Higgins and, former "Shark Tank" entrepreneur-turned-Shark, Jamie Siminoff. Produced by MGM Television and Sony Pictures Television, the show has become a culturally defining series. It returned this fall for its 10th season and has continued to inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs. The guest Sharks, who are icons and trailblazers in their respective business fields, will appear individually alongside Sharks Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O'Leary in various episodes during the 2018-2019 season.
Alli Webb is an entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author and founder of Drybar. After spending 15 years as a professional hair stylist, Webb left the professional hair industry in 2005 to start a family but decided to find a way to continue pursuing the creative side of hairstyling at a new-mom pace. She began offering affordable in-home blowout services to her mommy friends, which quickly expanded into a mobile operation by 2009. In 2010, Webb opened the first Drybar in Brentwood, California. Eight years later, over 100 locations across the U.S., Webb's Drybar has exploded into a nationally recognized and highly sought-after brand. Webb has also diversified the Drybar brand, creating a line of products and tools sold at popular retailers such as Nordstrom, Sephora and Ulta.
Webb has been named one of the "100 Most Creative People in Business" by Fast Company, featured on Fortune magazine's "40 Under 40" list, recognizing her as one of the top young businesswomen in the world and Marie Claire's "Most Fascinating Women." In July, Webb launched a podcast with her brother and business partner, Michael Landau, called "Raising the Bar," the latest extension of her ever-expanding empire. The weekly show provides a platform to budding entrepreneurs.

Now on to headlines.

Culinary icon Giada De Laurentiis kicks off the New Year with the competition series Winner Cake All, premiering Monday, January 7th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network. Each episode features four of the best cake-baking tandems from around the country, as Giada challenges them to create epic cakes for their clientele's unforgettable celebrations, ranging from a cake honoring a member of the armed services coming home to a cake for the ultimate family party featuring America's favorite quintuplets, the Busbys, from TLC's OutDaughtered.
Through 13 episodes the teams are put to the test over two rounds of baking, with a rotating panel of guest judges helping the clients determine which team captures their dream look and taste to prevail with the $10,000 grand prize!
"As a culinary superstar, restaurateur and Food Network host, there isn't anything that Giada cannot do," said Courtney White, President, Food Network. "Whether it is making a cake for a baby shower or bringing a celebrity client's vision to life, these bakers must navigate pressure-filled challenges, while wowing Giada and the judges for the right to walk away with $10,000."
Each episode features the baking teams competing in two rounds, including a Decoration Challenge where each team must create a unique cake topper based on the client's theme. The panel of judges then decide which team is the first to be eliminated. In the second round, the three remaining teams take part in the Cake Challenge, where Giada introduces the client's request for a sculpted cake for their celebration.
Thematic episodes during the season include the creation of a game day party cake for former NFL player Rashad Jennings, Guy Fieri tasking the bakers with making a Guy's Grocery Games-themed cake, and Iron Chef Michael Symon challenging the bakers to make a cake for the opening of his new restaurant in Las Vegas. The stakes are high but only one team will be victorious and celebrate with $10,000.
Visit for exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and insider videos with Giada and the celebrity clients. On Food Network's Instagram we are challenging Giada and the judges to a series of "Beat the Heat" games. Find out who can crack the most eggs in 30 seconds and who can stack and frost a cake the fastest! Join in on the conversation using #WinnerCakeAll.

Each week, eliminated chefs will have an opportunity to prove their worth and the chef with the worst dish will pack their knives for good; while the chefs with the winning dishes will get one step closer to making their way back in the competition.
Episodes of "Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen" will be made available on, On Demand or wherever you stream Bravo's "Top Chef" at the conclusion of each week's episode.

The New Year gets a sweet start with the return of Kids Baking Championship on Monday, January 7th at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network.
A dozen new talented young bakers, ranging in age from 9 to 13, will be tested in difficult dessert challenges during the new season.

Only one will take the cake and the sweet grand prize of $25,000, a feature in Food Network Magazine, and the title of Kids Baking Champion!
"This season of Kids Baking Championship delivers new challenges with surprising twists, making this the toughest most exciting competition yet! Even the most skilled pastry chefs would crumble under the pressure," said Courtney White, President, Food Network. "The abilities of the young bakers to create outstanding treats is truly remarkable."
This season showcases exciting new challenges featuring the latest dessert trends, lots of irresistible sweets, and tons of flavor and fun. Throughout the ten episodes the competitors show off their skills and creativity as they whip up impressive confections, from freaky flavor tarts using ingredients like jalapeno, goat cheese yuzu and anise, to dramatically erupting monkey bread volcanoes.

(song stops)

Now pay attention to.....

Buzz-GSN where we ask you guys on the GSN facebook page everything and anything. Kicking things off this segment is Jonathan Lahti.

"It's the shopping season and you guys need to bring Shop Til You Drop back to GSN. I think it's about time you started showing episodes from the Lifetime era."

If only they showed the ones from 2003-2005. On to James Hedrick.

"Hi Mr. Feldman, can you please remove Caroline and Friends with Shop 'Til You Drop original series with all of seasons 1-8 episodes from Lifetime, The Family Channel and PAX in the year 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2000 and 2001 with host Pat Finn with his son Corey, daughter Kaitlyn and sidekick Dee Bradley Baker as that wacky superhero Shop Man at 4:00pm east coast on the schedule!"

Might've been the same thing as the comment above it. Now we go to Marti DenHouten.

"I like the show America Says but cannot watch it. Whenever it is on my dog gets upset and starts acting weird. Change the channel and she is fine. Anyone else have this problem?"

Well, if you dog is outside and the weather is warm, you might as well stay in and watch the whole thing. Next up, Susan hummel Ingalls.

"We love America Says, Lingo, Chain Reaction, and Emogenius. Family Feud is ok, too crude sometimes. Dislike Baggage."

Ah, a nice GSN viewer, maybe Bruce Mahar can follow it up.

"I don't get why you change the whole line up without telling people, every time I go to put my favorite game show on and it's gone and garbage show replaced it . It would be nice if you could give people a heads up before the change."

Agreed. On to Greg Whitehead.

"I love Match Game and watch whenever I can. I appreciate the marathon! Thanks for that. However, this is the age of binge watching and people expect shows in sequence. Showing random episodes is confusing and not comfortable watching. Please remember this in the future. Thanks."

Guess it's GSN for you. FInally, Fay Wagman.

"as a long standing fan of GSN I am currently so disappointed. Family Feud monopolizes the schedule. I loved this show when you had many hosts from years back. Now we have hours upon end of Steve Harvey, who used to enjoy. Way way too much of a very nice thing. Now I cannot even watch the show. I pay a premium to my provider to get GSN. While there are a few shows I really, really like and watch every day, I am now seriously considering canceling my subscription."

And....she switches to Buzzr.

Now to a Gamestop Game Break. Test your knowledge of christmas movies. 

What was the name of the Gangster movie in the film Home Alone 2? 

Think and ponder after this Google Play music interlude from our mixed tag mixmasters Scott & Ryceejo with some help for this Christmas season.

Let's make some noise for the answer. It is......

Merry CHristmas, ya Filthy animal.

Would you believe, our Match Game mistress of impressionism has made Brizzy Voices a tag team partner in doing Harry Potter impressions............but with a twist.

This is a Game SHow Live! special report.

In a 2-part series, we investigate the two uneathed 1996 pilots done by Goodson and All-American Television. WHen the latter scooped up the rights to Goodson's Library, they wanted to get new ground for old shows and Card SHarks was one of them. But was it more different than the classic? Let's investigate.

In 1996, All American Television wanted to re-do Card Sharks. This time, Tom Green was the host and Dee Dee Weathers dealt out the cards. Only difference was instead of 2 decks of cards, they had to build a pyramid of cards. Not fun. Also, they brought in an old fearure from the 1986 version. This time, 10 rock stars vixens were in the crowd. Also, the bonus round was different. The old version has the Money Cards, the holy grail of the show. Instead, it was 3 stars and each question had a quote for the stars to fit. Again, not fun. Up to 4 cards were in the diamond and every card was worth $100 times it's card like a 7 for $700. One card is the ace and do you know what it's worth? $5000. 

However, Card Sharks changed it in 2001 and decided to have one row of cards and finish the dilemmas to change it to make it the lowest of the revivals. Tune in next week for part 2 of this investigative series.

That's it for this week, today's "lump of coal in the stocking" is a Jitterbug smartphone. It's like an updated 2nd generation iPhone, but runs only on 2G speed, but the good news is, Youtube runs on 5g speed for that nostagic feeling and oh yeah, the Iheartradio app only plays The Standard......and nothing else. It's only $45 bucks and provides plans as low as $12. Wow.
