Speaking of Good Day Sacramento
Mark S. Allen got into a bit of trouble yesterday when, during an interview with Joan Rivers, he made a joke about Rivers's daughter Melissa. Rivers was so offended she stopped the interview and told Allen not to get "so f*****g smart." To which Allen proudly responded, "I've NEVER been smart!" Actually, Allen's joke was pretty funny, and Rivers should be able to take it given how much she's dished out over the years. The video can be seen here or below.

The Ugly Truth: Katherine Heigl Walks Among Us
Following the grand tradition of late 70s television dramedy
, the protagonist of the new movie Eight is Enough , played by The Ugly Truth Katherine Heigl, works for a fictional news agency in Sacramento, California. In Eight is Enough the fictional news agency was the newspaper The Sacramento Register, while in The Ugly Truth it's a fictional news channel.
Surprised? I was when I heard the news today on
Jeffrey Callison's radio show , broadcast by our local Insight NPR affiliate, Capital Public Radio. But apparently the dogged reporters at had already broken the story, asking someone promoting the movie if Good Day Sacramento Good Day Sacramento was the inspiration for the film's plot. They were joking (sorry, I couldn't find the video), but there were also rumors that the characters in the movie played by Cheryl Hines and John Michael Higgins were based on real-life retired married co-anchors Dave Walker and Lois Hart. Heck, while we're at it, couldn't Gerard Butler's character, a chauvinistic media personality, be based on Rush Limbaugh, who got his start in Sacramento?
The movie's getting mixed reviews, so I'll probably wait till it comes out on DVD. Unless I hear next that
Deirdre Fitzpatrick is in it . . .
The Ugly Truth
Speaking of Mark S. Allen . . .
He seems to be taking styling cues from a certain Austrian fashion reporter, nein?

We're Officially Doomed
In his 'Bites' column for the July 16, 2009 issue of , columnist Sacramento News & Review Cosmo Garvin points out that since will no longer be publishing movie reviews by their film critic The Sacramento Bee Carla Meyer, '[. . .] Mark S. Allen will now be the most influential film critic in the region.' We're doomed I tell you, DOOMED! Incidentally, I saw Mr. Allen while out at a restaurant a few months ago, and he was a lot smaller than he appears on TV.

New K Street Building?
Even in this troubled economy, new developments are still being proposed. A
25-story building is proposed at 8th and K Street, which would hopefully infuse some much-needed business in the area. If built, it could be open by 2012.
