Q I was thinking about Comcast?

A [Burst of laughter] All Comcast needs to do is put OWN in HD and I’ll be happy.


Q You eat out constantly; what are your favorite five current dishes?

Q On Feb. 8 on the radio with Alexis, you were talking about Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift having a feud. And you said, “There are people on my job I don’t like and I speak to them anyhow …” May I have the names of these people, because I know you were talking about Fox 9?

A [Laughter while beating a pillow] I love everybody there. I do. Look ...

Q Let’s move on?
