    OK, thery really gotta rename this show!
    None of these people has been a celebrity for quite a few years and some of them never were.
    Actually, there are a couple there that I thought were dead, lol.
    This is gonna save me a few hours of my life from being wasted ’cause I sure won’t be watching this mess! Surely the weather channel will have something better on during this time—or maybe there will be a nice test pattern on somewhere.

    Looks like Trump got him some goldies but, oldies this year. Cheryl Tiegs whose SI swimsuit issue helped a LOT of young boys reach their potential many years ago. Long Live Fishnet.
