Versus’ The Daily Line, the only daily sports show out of New York, has seen some fun guests. We kicked off the show with Cheech Marin, Chuck Liddel, Ice Cube, Dana White, and Darryl Strawberry have all stopped by the studio. Also, Mike Tyson had an intimate interview with one of the hosts, comedian Reese Waters, as they sipped tea at the Ritz Carlton.

We are having fun working with the hilarious Comedy Central show Tosh.0, about to resume its second season on Wednesday, June 2 at 10:30pm ET/PT. Tosh.0 features the razor sharp humor from comedian Daniel Tosh and delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredible ingenious in this weekly, topical series. The second season of “Tosh.0” is averaging 1.8 million total viewers and is the most watched show in its timeslot among men 18-24 and men 18-34. We are working with Tosh.0 on their special “Web Redemption” videos, which gives subjects of infamous viral videos a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they’ve become synonymous. Be sure to check out the video below called “Crystal Light Dancers” featuring Alan Thicke, and watch the premiere of the second half of the second season on June 2!

O, The Oprah Magazine enjoyed its 10 Year Anniversary celebration this past weekend in New York. Oprah came over from Chicago for the “Live Your Best Life” celebration – the tagline of the magazine. The 10th Anniversary issue gave readers the chance to interview the woman herself – Oprah, and be sure to watch out for the special section of the 10 Women that Will Matter the Most in the Next 10 Years, including Anna Kendrick, Laurel and Rebeccah Wassner, Esperanza Spalding, and Hannah Tinti. A big shout out to Gayle, Adam and Mamie who we have worked with from the beginning! It’s always such a joy working with everyone over there and we look forward to 10 more years.

Also we made it through the first season of The Marriage Ref. CTB had a great time booking Demi Moore, Ricky Gervais, Kelly Ripa, Alec Baldwin, Martin Short, Sarah Silverman, Matthew Broderick, Martha Stewart, Cedric the Entertainer, Sheryl Crow, Kirstie Alley, Adam Carolla, Kathy Griffin, Tracy Morgan, Nathan Lane, Greg Giraldo, Bette Midler, Craig Robinson and Jim Breuer. We look forward to working with everyone again on Season Two!

Last but not least, as we are trudging ahead on new shows and programming, we want to take a moment to say goodbye to a show that we loved from the beginning! The Bonnie Hunt Show was an absolute pleasure to work on and Brina and Kelly are sad to say goodbye as they rejoin the LA office with Kellie, bringing Abigail along with them. Working with Bonnie, Don, and Daniel has been a joy...And CONGRATULATIONS to Bonnie for her Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Talk Show Host! You deserve it!
