This Afternoon : SAVAGES on “Ellen”

(photo by Tim)

Those of us who are long in the tooth can remember when a young Ellen DeGeneres was entrusted with propping up the career of contemporary art’s 2nd most prominent mercury poisoning victim (Graham Parker being the first), Jeremy Piven. Of course, Ellen’s come an incredibly long way since then, fighting off a strong challenge from Matador office favorite, “Hot Bench”, to become the modern day ruler of daytime television. Tuesday marks yet another highlight in Ellen’s afternoon tenure when she welcomes Savages to her syndicated chat show, along with crowd-pleasing star of “Joe Dirt” and “Joe Dirt 2”, David Spade. The program airs at 4pm eastern, but please check your local listings because we cannot be expected to learn the names of every regional broadcaster. In New York, that’s Channel 4 (WNBC), in Los Angeles Channel 4 (KNBC). Hey, if you live in flyover country, at least the gas is cheaper.
