Erin Andrews accused of going “Hollywood” while working on ESPN’s College Gameday
Andrews was an ESPN sideline reporter who had just come off of competing on Dancing With the Stars when she joined ESPN’s iconic college football pregame show in 2010. According to College Gameday’s Desmond Howard, Andrews seemed more interested in the goings-on in Hollywood than in college football. “She had the Dancing With the Stars and the whole Hollywood thing going on, whatever,” Howard said on ESPN historian James Andrew Miller’s Origins podcast. “We are talking football and she’s in there on that website,” PerezHilton.com. Andrews spent two seasons on Gameday before moving to Fox Sports to cover college football and the NFL in 2012. Fox Sports wouldn’t allow her to be interviewed for the podcast.

L.A. should move to preserve CBS Television City before it's sold and torn down, a former city official says
The iconic studio has served as home to All in the Family, The Carol Burnett Show, American Idol, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Price is Right, Three’s Company, Dancing With the Stars and numerous other shows. CBS Television City is also where Elvis Presley taped his famous 1956 The Ed Sullivan Show debut. In a Los Angeles Times op-ed, former Los Angeles City Councilmember and Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky writs of his concern over CBS’ interest in selling the property for as much as $900 million. “What becomes of Television City is a citywide concern as much as it is a neighborhood one. Los Angeles should not let developers turn the historic studio complex into a mini Century City,” he writes in the Los Angeles times.
