"Survivor is losing sponsors because of dividing teams by race, but they have picked up one new advertiser, Cracker Barrel."

On Jay Leno Ellen Degeneres revealed that on her ranch she has a cow named Holy and that she tried to revive a rodent with mouth-to-mouse resuscitation.

Chelsea Handler asked a homeless man, "Why would I give you money for food when you have a perfectly delicious dog?"

Steven: "Close Encounters?"
Chelsea: "No, the little guy."
Steven: "E.T.?"
Chelsea: "No, Tom Cruise."

Al Franken to Newt Gingrich: "Newt, don't you want that gay couple to have the same lifelong commitment you had with your first wife?"

Jimmy Carr: "A woman reaches her sexual peak after 35 years. A man reaches his after about four minutes. Which may be why we get more done."

Jimmy Kimmel said Rosie got a big bouquet from Tom Cruise for her debut on The View. "She said it was delicious."

Speak of the devil, here's Tom with Katie and baby Suri.


Jay Leno said Paris Hilton's DUI arrest was the most embarrassing thing to happen to her since her CD came out, and that Donald Rumsfeld's shoulder operation was a success. "He'll be back patting himself on the back by tomorrow."

On The View Rosie O'Donnell said when they bathed together her daughter asked, "When will I get my fur?" Joel McHale of E!'s The Soup wondered, "If they were taking a bath together, why did Rosie have her back to her daughter?" Joel also observed that with Katie Couric helming the news, "The CBS eye goes right up your colon." [Katie once had a colonoscopy on camera.]

Jay Leno remarked on the story of prisoners hiding cell phones in their colons: "There's a 'Can you hear me now?' commercial I don't want to see. I can't even get reception in a real tunnel. And you don't want to hear, 'Here, it's for you.'"

Jay Leno "Headlines" had a classified ad for a "Singer sexing machine," and a guy selling a car who probably meant "immaculate" when he said, "Ejaculate inside and out." There was a supermarket ad for "99-cent Boston Butt Hole" and "12-pack Caca Cola."


Bay Area Reporter “Out There” column, 9/14/06: Everlasting civic treasure and raconteur Strange de Jim checked in to say he’s heard from his old friend and soulmate Dame Edna, whose career is on a Gorgeous Upswing since she’s been signed to star in Medusa 2: Snakes on a Dame.

Norm Macdonald on David Letterman said he has very high cholesterol. "I hope they don't have to do a Letterman on me!" [Dave had open heart surgery a few years ago.] Norm also said he's been reading about Hitler. "The more I learn about the guy, the more I don't care for him."
