TV Bulletin Board (Jan. 27) -- McCartney to joust with Colbert
By ED BARK
This should be good. Sir Paul McCartney will be visiting Comedy Central's The Colbert Report on Wednesday, Jan. 28th, ostensibly to talk about his new CD, "Electric Arguments."
Comedy Central says it's McCartney's "only scheduled U.S. late night appearance," so there. Show time is 10:30 p.m. (central).
***Former Fox4 anchor/reporter Natasha Curry, who primarily worked for Good Day, is now a news reader for CNN's HLN. She earlier joined Seattle's KOMO-TV after leaving Fox4 in 2007. Curry has been at HLN (formerly Headline News) since December.
***Mark Cuban and his Dallas-based HDNet are hooking up with Ring of Honor Wrestling, whose grapplers were featured in the Mickey Rourke movie The Wrestler.
Ring of Honor purports to present "authentic professional wrestling," which tends to make it a very bloody "sport." Says Cuban in a press release: "ROH has developed a cult following thanks to its special brand of professional wrestling and we are pleased to present it for the first time to a mass television audience."
There's no air date yet for HDNet's weekly ROH series. Its stars include Necro Butcher, Nigel McGuiness and Austin Aries.
