Friday Assortment

Friday, March 29, 2013

One day a woman who’d just moved to a new town visited the local church. The minister gave an exceptionally long sermon, and many of the congregants fell asleep. After the service, the woman decided to mingle and introduce herself. She approached one particularly groggy gentleman and said, “Hello, I’m Gladys Dunn.”
The man replied, “You’re not the only one, Miss. I’m glad he’s done, too!”

THE SCIENCE OF TV

How are the TV ratings calculated?

About 5,000 homes serve as a cross-section of TV viewers for the Nielsen Media Research company, which tabulates the data obtained by their electronic People Meters and Ratings Diaries and comes up with the weekly ratings. For example, say an episode of Two and a Half Men got a rating of 8.5/13. The first number is points—the percentage of the 115 million American homes who watched the show (in this case, 8.5 percent, or of 9.78 million homes). The second number is a “share,” the percentage of homes watching TV at that time that watched that show. In this example, it was 13 percent. Why are ratings calculated? The more viewers a show has, the more networks can charge for advertising.

SCANDAL ON THE SET

Casey Wilson had been a member of the ensemble cast of Saturday Night Live for two years, when she was surprisingly let go just before the beginning of the 2009–10 season. Why? According to rumors from insiders at SNL, Wilson was ordered to lose 30 pounds … or else. One of the new cast members that season was a more svelte comedian named Jenny Slate, who, during her first on-camera appearance, said the F-word on live TV. (Slate was fired at the end of the year.)

Benny was dying. His wife was with him, leaning over his bed. As he was drawing his final breaths, he gasped, “Liza, I have one last request.”
“Of course! Anything, Benny. What is it?” Liza asked, softly.
“Six months after I die,” he said, “I want you to marry Jonas.”
“But I thought you hated Jonas,” Liza said.
With his very last breath, Benny said, “I do.”

’STACHED AWAY

During the 2005 Michael Jackson child-molestation trial, famed television journalist Geraldo Rivera was so sure that Jackson was being framed that he publicly vowed to shave his signature bushy mustache if Jackson was found guilty. Jackson was acquitted; Rivera’s mustache lived on. Rivera has had the ’stache since his professional career began in the early 1970s, causing him to once remark, “My mustache is older than my wife.”

Did you hear about the invisible man who married an invisible woman?

Their kids weren’t much to look at.

What city is home to the oldest Torah in the United States?

Savannah, Georgia. The deerskin Torah was brought there from England in 1733 by Jews who were originally from Portugal, Spain, and Germany. The sacred scroll is now kept on display by Congregation Mickve Israel, the synagogue they founded.

Happy Passover!

BEHIND THE SCENES

What it’s like to be a contestant on Jeopardy!

* Jeopardy! films five episodes—a week’s worth of shows—in one day. Because of this, contestants are told to bring three outfits with them in case they win a game and come back as the next episode’s “returning champion” on the next “day.”

* The player who comes in first gets to keep whatever money they win. Second-and third-place contestants get a flat fee: $2,000 for second place, $1,000 for third.

* Since the 1950s quiz-show scandals, FCC rules prohibit the host from interacting with contestants, as he may have prior knowledge of the day’s questions. So contestants do not meet or see host Alex Trebek until the taping begins and he saunters out onstage.

FASCINATING TRIVIA !
I NEVER would have guessed
about the oldest Torah
being in the Deep South !

It would be SO COOL to be
on Jeopardy !
Do you recall the Golden Girls
episode when Dorothy dreams of
and actually tries out for it?
One of my FAVES !
It's EASY to shout out the answer
in the comfort and ease of your
living room, but must be stressful
in front of a live audience !
I know that I would FREEZE UP
with FRIGHT- even with knowing
the correct answer !
