On Wednesday, Dec. 26, when most of you will be shuffling back to work or heading to the shopping mall to snag the stuff nobody wanted to give anyone for Christmas, I'll be doing my best to NOT look like a total jackass on KATU-TV's wonderfully, wacky morning show AMNW
(which, if you've noticed recently has morphed into this weird hybrid of The David Letterman Show
and Pee-Wee Herman's Playhouse
Yes, Virginia, they've made me a co-host-for-a-day.
While it's not exactly 'Queen For A Day'
, for a Merv Griffin/Mike Douglas-talk show-loving guy like myself it's pretty damn close.
I'll be sitting in for Dave Anderson,
doing my best to keep up with the lovely Helen Raptis
(seen above) between 9 and 10 am on Channel 2. I don't know how it will all turn out, but at least it will give me an excuse not to stuff my face with Christmas ham tomorrow.
