Thanks to Darby at KCRW's "The Business" for letting me drop by the station and tape another "Hollywood Banter" segment of the show (filling in for host Kim Masters). This week the Los Angeles Times' John Horn and I talked about:
- Michael J. Fox strikes unique deal with NBC for a 22-episode series without making a pilot
- Jimmy Kimmel to move his show to 11:35, going head-to-head with Leno and Letterman
- Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to produce the 2012 Oscar telecast. Who will host?
John and I also offer up a friendly wager: I'm predicting that Zadan and Meron will recruit their pal Queen Latifah to host next year's Oscars, while John is putting his money on another pal of theirs, Neil Patrick Harris. We'll see!
