As part of the show's "Home Sweet Home Giveaway," one viewer will win a house valued at $350,000 in Latitude Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett's new retirement community in Daytona Beach, Fla. The winner will be selected at random at the end of "Home Sweet Home" week, which will run from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2. “After 35 seasons, it’s not an easy feat to do something for the first time, but thanks to Latitude Margaritaville, we’re doing just that by giving away a house,” said Wheel of Fortune executive producer Harry Friedman. “Our viewers welcome us into their homes each night, so we’re returning the favor by welcoming one of them into a new home of their own.”

Sarah Silverman tells Howard Stern: Louis CK masturbated in front of me with my consent
“I don’t know if I’m going to regret saying this,” Silverman said on this morning's The Howard Stern Show. “I’ve known Louis forever, I’m not making excuses for him, so please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals. When we were kids, and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me, sometimes I’d go, ‘F*ck yeah I want to see that!’ … It’s not analogous to the other women that are talking about what he did to them. He could offer me nothing. We were only just friends. So sometimes, yeah, I wanted to see it, it was amazing. Sometimes I would say, ‘F*cking no, gross,’ and we got pizza.” Silverman said she thinks that CK didn't understand the implications of his actions, especially when he became more famous. “I’m not saying what he did was okay. I’m just saying at a certain point, when he became influential, not even famous, but influential in the world of comedy, it changes,” she said. “He felt like he was the same person, but the dynamic was different and it was not okay.”

The move is similar to what CBS did with The Late Show, when it brought in CBS This Morning's executive producer, Chris Licht, to oversee the show and assist Stephen Colbert.
