Interview with Wendy Williams of "Love Triangle" on GSN 4/8/11.

MEREDITH CORPORATION: Love Triangle Q&A Session with Wendy Williams
April 8, 2011/1:00 p.m. EDT

Cathy Choe, Host
Wendy Williams

Moderator Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by. Welcome to the Love Triangle Q&A Session with Wendy Williams. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. Later, we will conduct a question and answer session. Instructions will be given at that time. If you should require assistance during the call, please press star, then zero. As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.

I would now like to turn the conference over to our host, Miss Cathy Choe. Please go ahead.

C. Choe Hey there. This is Cathy Choe from New Media Strategies. Iíd like to thank everyone for joining us for todayís Q&A session, and start things off by thanking Wendy Williams for meeting us to answer questions today.

As you know, Wendy stars as host of the new original series, Love Triangle, scheduled to premiere on Monday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern 6:00 p.m. Pacific. In a moment, weíll begin the Q&A session. Iíd like to remind all participants that you will receive a transcript of this session within the next 24 to 48 hours.

I would also like to remind everyone to please limit yourself to one question and one follow-up, and then re-enter the question queue for any additional questions. This will ensure that we field as many questions as possible within the allotted time. I would now like to turn the call back over to our Moderator to begin the formal Q&A session. Please go ahead.

Moderator Thank you. (Instructions.) One moment for the first question. Our first question is from Alexa March with Please go ahead.

A. March Hi, Wendy. Thank you for speaking with us today.

W. Williams Hi, Alexa. Thank you.

A. March I would like to ask you, what made you want to be part of this project?

W. Williams Well, first of all, I was able to fit it in my talk show schedule. Thatís usually was the first question I had about taking on the project. Then, the second thing is, itís an original game show. I love that.

My favorite kind of game show is one that has to do with relationships, whether it was the old Love Connection or Hell Date, and shows like that. So, Love Triangle sounded really fun and very organic to the Ask Wendy segment that I do on my talk show. Thereís a lie detector, which always starts the party.

A. March Okay. Since the show is about love triangles, what advice can you give our readers about dealing with love triangles?

W. Williams If youíre in your 20s, I donít necessarily know that you have to choose in a love triangle. I mean your 20s are for being young, getting your career going on, having fun within the confines of decency. I donít necessarily think that women particularly have to feel pressured to choose in a love triangle, particularly also in their 20s. But, society says that weíre supposed to be good girls and only juggle one relationship at a time.

I think once you get into your 30s love triangles need to be pared down to one person because for a lot of us in the 30s is when you start to really pick your life mate and the person that you want to be with. By your 40s, you definitely donít want to live your life in a love triangle, and so on, and so forth.

So, they are sloppy and they are messy, but theyíre fun. In your 20s, theyíre practical.

A. March Okay. Thank you so much for speaking with us.

W. Williams Thank you.

Moderator Question is from Pattye Grippo with Please go ahead.

P. Grippo Hi, Wendy. Thanks for talking with us today.

W. Williams Hi, Pattye.

P. Grippo So, what can you tell me about truth the buster and howís that going to play into the advice that you give?

W. Williams Well, I donít tell these people who to choose on the game show. Iím just merely there to usher along conversation.

The trust buster is a device like a lie detector. Theyíre hooked up to it. The person who is doing the choosing gets to ask anything that they want. Do you love me? Have you been faithful to me? Is it true you only have one child?

In these 32 episodes that weíve done, I think Iíve seen it all, including people who lie and say they love, but they donít; people who say that theyíve been faithful and they arenít. Guys get down on one knee, ask a girl to marry, and she says no. So, thereís nothing like a lie detector.

P. Grippo And, if you had one in your real life, what would you do with it?

W. Williams Use it on my son. Heís ten.

P. Grippo Okay, well, thank you.

W. Williams Yes, youíre welcome.

Moderator Our next question is from Nancy Harrington with Pop Culture Passionistas.

W. Williams Okay. Hi, Nancy.

N. Harrington Hi, Wendy, Iím actually here with my sister, Amy. Sheís my writing partner.

W. Williams Oh.

N. Harrington We want to know, in the description for the show, it says the personality test covers the areas of money, lifestyle, family, and sex.

W. Williams Yes.

N. Harrington Which area do you think most of the couples are most incompatible?

W. Williams Lifestyle. Weíve done a short order for GSN, 32 episodes. In the 32 episodes, Iíve seen where lifestyle is the big iffy. People donít talk about the most basic things like Iím Jewish; youíre Catholic. I want to raise our kids Jewish, is it okay with you? And, he says absolutely not. Iím a vegan; you eat meat. I want to live in a vegan lifestyle, including future children. Would you?

Lifestyle is a biggie. I drink; you donít drink. You always ask me to stop drinking, but I wonít. You know.

N. Harrington Right. Whatís the most surprising fact thatís been revealed about one of the suitors, do you think?

W. Williams Infidelity. One surprise was a guy getting down on one knee, asking his girl to marry him. She said no. He had a whole engagement party planned at a venue in L.A. After the show was over, and I went into my dressing room to disrobe, and I was leaving the lot, he was sitting on the curb in the street smoking cigarette after cigarette. The security said oh, yes, heís been out here for a good hour, crying and smoking. Yes.

N. Harrington Thatís heartbreaking.

W. Williams I know.

N. Harrington Well, good luck with the show. Thanks so much.

W. Williams Thank you very much.

Moderator Next question is from Sammi Turano with TV Grapevine. Please go ahead.

S. Turano Hi. Good morning. How are you doing?

W. Williams Hi, Sammi.

S. Turano Hi. My first question for you is how do you balance it all? Do you feel Ė you are in Dancing with the Stars, youíre doing this new show, youíre on One Life to Live. How do you balance it all?

W. Williams Well, with a lot of help behind the scenes. My staff here at the Wendy show has been great. Theyíve been very understanding. But, I do my best not to drop the ball so that it doesnít make it difficult for them to help me produce the show.

My husband is my business partner and my manager. So, it really does help a lot that where I go, he goes, and vice versa. So, I donít have a lot of explaining to do when I come back home. Our son is ten, but he only knows his mother being in entertainment and daddy being the manager, so this is regular life to him. Heís a good boy, and a good student. I couldnít ask for a better situation at home.

Again, in terms of here at the talk show, my over 20 years of radio experience had helped me be good at what I do here naturally. So, the producers arenít producing like a piece of wood.

S. Turano Right, right.

W. Williams It really enables me to go up and do other projects like Love Triangle, which we taped all 32 episodes in about four weekends, Friday and Saturday, back and forth, back and forth. Then, Dancing with the Stars, well, Iíve just been eliminated, but between Dancing with the Stars and this game show project, Iíve only been home three weekends in 2011.

S. Turano Okay. What advice do you have for people starting out in their journalism career?

W. Williams Make sure you have a Plan B because your Plan B in a lot of cases will be what pays your bills, while Plan A, journalism, works itself out. Get to know as many people as possible, because you never know where your big break is going to come.

S. Turano Oh, wonderful. Well, thank you so much and good luck with everything.

W. Williams Thank you. Bye-bye.

S. Turano Bye.

Moderator The next question is from Susan Lanoue with the TV Mega Site.

S. Lanoue Hi, Wendy.

W. Williams Okay. Hi Susan.

S. Lanoue Suzanne. Thatís okay.

W. Williams Oh, sorry.

S. Lanoue Thatís all right. I enjoy watching you on One Live to Live and I was wondering how that came about and do you think viewers from One Life to Live will enjoy Love Triangle? It seems like a good fit.

W. Williams I think everyoneís going to enjoy Love Triangle because itís an evening show. You know it comes on at 7:00 p.m. Itís adult oriented.

For me, I am a 46-year old woman. I hate seeing kids on dating shows because I donít feel as though itís necessary for kids to make choices. What I love about Love Triangle is that we have all kinds of people on Ė 50-year olds, 40-year olds, and 30-year olds. Itís juicy and itís spicy because these are grown people. Itís an evening show and itís an evening setting. I do think everyoneís going to love the show.

Regarding One Life to Live, that came about because they have a TV show there called Access Landview. It was right up my alley. Itís like an Entertainment Tonight show. My name on the show is Phyllis Rose. Iím simply sitting at my news desk and reading the prompter and reporting on what Brad and Angelina are doing, and some of the other stars, and, by the way, bringing down to the Camerons at the same time so the scandal is reported...

S. Lanoue ... like you have a lot of fun.

W. Williams Yes. You know what, Iím having a lot of fun. But, Iím a talk show host first, who gets the chance to do some really wonderful things on the side, and Love Triangle is definitely one of those things. I actually enjoyed Love Triangle so much and the work schedule of it that I could see myself doing this game show, if everything goes well, for years upon years upon years. I like being a game show host. I never thought this would come around.

S. Lanoue Well, I hope it works out; you get to do it for years and years. I know that Dating Game went on for a long time, so maybe this will be like that.

W. Williams Yes. Thank you.

Moderator Next question is from Melodie Simpson with Hollywood the Right Way. Go ahead, please.

W. Williams Hi, Melodie.

M. Simpson Hi. Thank you so much for the interview.

W. Williams Thank you.

M. Simpson So, I watch your show every morning with my younger sister, whoís in high school, but what is the appropriate age range for Love Triangle?

W. Williams I think that high school is fine. Sheís not going to see anything on Love Triangle that she wouldnít see on, gee put it this way. Love Triangle is more decent than Jersey Shore. Iím sure she watches that. But Love Triangle is an adult dating show. So, she is definitely too young for it.

GSNís target audience is 18 to 54. But, on Love Triangle, we donít have 18-year olds choosing between two people. We have more like 45-year olds, and 30-year olds, grown people, which makes it fun because we have the lie detector and Iíll tell you what. Your younger sister could learn a thing or two about relationships from watching Love Triangle.

M. Simpson I love the idea of looking into the past, the present, and the future, and as you mentioned, the lie detector. But, what was your favorite aspect of the show that grabbed you immediately?

W. Williams The lie detector, the trust buster.

M. Simpson All right.

W. Williams I have dreamt all my life of being able to do something with a lie detector. I used to want to have one on my radio show, but my bosses told me it wasnít in the budget. I wanted to have one here on this Wendy Williams Show, but there was no place to fit one in.

But, I really love everything about it. Iíll be honest with you. I love the fact that I can Ė Love Triangle is like an offshoot of Ask Wendy. So, the common thread in my life right now is Iím helping people solve problems. I love that I can wear more evening attire. I love that itís three people and one person chooses between two people because thatís a real life situation. I love that itís a gay thing, itís a straight thing, itís a black-white-mixed race thing. Itís modern love played out on Love Triangle.

M. Simpson Well, thank you so much for your time. I love your show, and I love you.

W. Williams Thanks, Melodie. Bye.

M. Simpson Bye.

Moderator Question is from Latoya West, Go ahead, please.

L. West Hi, Wendy. Thanks for talking to us.

W. Williams Hi, Latoya. Thanks.

L. West Hey. I wanted to ask you, you know you mentioned the soap, the reality show, now the game show. Is there anything else youíd like to try?

W. Williams Yes. I would like to have wigs. I would like to have handbags. I would like to brand myself with merchandise, and not just any merchandise, stuff that Iím passionate about. Stuff that my fans already know that I love the wigs. So, itís the most natural thing for me to have a line of hair. My fans already know that I love decorating at the house. Iím a crafter. So, itís natural for me to have maybe a line of home goods somewhere. They know I love shoes and those kinds of things.

So, yes, the next thing that I would like to do, Latoya, is brand myself. That would be wonderful.

L. West Great. Now, initially, you put people in the hot seat with the lie detector and everything. This would be completely different. But, would you like to have the Dancing with the Stars judges on the hot seat to question them about your scores?

W. Williams You know what? Iím too busy. Iím over it.

L. West Youíre over it.

W. Williams Iíll be honest with you. Latoya, that was a really fun opportunity for me to do Dancing with the Stars. Probably the biggest thing that I learned about myself is Iím still as fearless today as I was in younger life. Itís been a while since I've had to really challenge myself with something that I completely just like really.

So, Iím not a dancer and it was fun doing it. I was a good sport about it. Iím glad that Iím not on it anymore, because my family needed my attention here. They totally understood. My staff here at Wendy needed my attention. Iím a business woman also. I just had so many things going on. I donít regret taking on Dancing with the Stars, but itís good to be home.

L. West Yes, I bet. Thank you so much.

W. Williams Thanks, Latoya. Bye.

Moderator Next question is from Topher Burns with Go ahead, please.

T. Burns Hi, Wendy. Thank you so much. Iím looking forward to checking this out. I think youíre a perfect fit for relationship game shows.

W. Williams Yes, thank you, Topher.

T. Burns You were saying earlier that this is many different types of people, including gay. I couldnít tell here, but are we going to have same-sex couples on the show as well?

W. Williams Yes, of course.

T. Burns Do you think theyíre dealing with different problems than with the other straight couples?

W. Williams No. Love is love.

T. Burns All right.

W. Williams I think one thing is that I think a lot of times with straight couples youíll find a lot more straight couples who might have a child involved. Thatís the only thing.

T. Burns Is there any Ė do they get juicier or are we looking at anything, any different issues than maybe straight couples would deal with like acceptance with families, or.

W. Williams No, nothing like that. Weíve had gay couples on and there have been no differences as far as love. You know, love is love. One thing is that because itís an evening show and itís pointed out our core audience on GSN, which is 18 to 54, but there are people who admit to threesomes and foursomes and all kind. Itís juicy; itís juicy.

T. Burns Thatís what Iím looking forward to. Are there any previews you can give to on some of those same-sex couples?

W. Williams Can you say that again?

T. Burns Can you give us any previews as to what sort of issues weíll be seeing with those couples?

W. Williams Well, Iíll be honest with you, Topher. We taped all 32 episodes at the end of January and into the middle of February, so a lot has happened with me since then. I donít really remember specifics. So, when I watch the show next week, and these 32 episodes, itíll be like watching for the first time myself.

T. Burns Cool. Well, you and I will be enjoying them at the same time, then.

W. Williams Thank you, Topher.

T. Burns Thanks.

W. Williams Bye-bye.

Moderator Our next question is from Rachelle Thomas with Right Celebrity. Please go ahead.

W. Williams Hi, Rachelle.

R. Thomas Hi, Wendy. Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us.

W. Williams Youíre welcome.

R. Thomas I have just a couple of quick questions. My first one, if you were describing the show to someone who had never heard of it, how would you describe it to pique their interest?

W. Williams This is a show about real life situations where one person wants to choose between two people theyíve been having relations with.

R. Thomas All right.

W. Williams It gets messy and sticky. Weíve got a series of questions in our lifestyle survey. The questions surround lifestyle, money, and of course, thereís the lie detector, which we call the trust buster. That really does get to the bottom of things. In the end, the person makes a choice. You must leave with only one person, not two.

R. Thomas Okay. Iím excited. I saw the preview. I think it looks great. Then, my next question would be, I wonder if you could just talk a little bit about your experience on Dancing with the Stars.

W. Williams It was fun and tedious at the same time. I knew exactly what I was getting into. Thanks to the Internet, you can Google anything and figure it out from there. I mean I knew I was going to be practicing for five hours a day for six days a week initially. Then, it was brought down to four days of practicing because we were out in L.A. on Monday and Tuesday.

I knew that I was going to need tremendous help with the Wendy show, a little modification of our show days, the tapings, and stuff. I also knew I was going to lose a few pounds. I knew I was going to be judged for something that I donít know anything about in front of 40 million people. I knew Iíd have swollen feet and that whole bit.

So, nothing about the experience surprised me, including being eliminated early. What I would caution other celebrities when regarding Dancing with the Stars, be sure that you have a really good support system around you to help you pick up the pieces where youíre not going to be able to do things, simple things like if you have children. Youíre not going to be doing any homework where youíre paying attention to...

So, be aware of that with your partner. Yes, youíre not going to be able to have as much sex as youíre used to because youíre tired and achy all the time. With your job, if youíre ... just be sure everybody understands. Also, most importantly, for yourself, you have to be emotionally strong. Your own biggest cheerleader because if youíre not being judged and talked to so harshly, itíll do a number on you.

R. Thomas I can imagine. ... it does a number on you.

W. Williams Yes, yes.

R. Thomas Well, I think you did a great job and I canít wait to see the new show.

W. Williams Thank you. Iím really excited. Thank you so much.

Moderator Question is from Melodie Simpson, Hollywood the Right Way. Go ahead, please.

M. Simpson Hello, Iím back.

W. Williams Hi, Melodie.

M. Simpson So, I want to know is there anything that you were surprised to learn from the contestants about love in a relationship?

W. Williams Yes. Well, not really surprised, but people just come to the show and they are very, very honest. What they arenít honest about comes out in the lie detector. I guess what surprises me is how many people have all the information laid out in front of them and you still choose the wrong person. Why? Why did you choose him?

M. Simpson Now, we all know that you have a lot of opinions and have no problem sharing them, but do you ever find yourself holding back from saying something because you can tell a certain contestant is either not ready to hear it or wonít understand it to begin with?

W. Williams Yes, sometimes. Sometimes I do, but not very often. I think that the part that I have to hold back on, and itís because of the way the show is designed, I canít tell you which one to pick. After you pick the one, I canít say you just screwed up. You made the wrong decision. He doesnít love you. He doesnít even like girls. How about that? You know what Iím saying.

M. Simpson Oh, yes.

W. Williams Like sometimes, I just want to say heís not that into you.

M. Simpson All right. Well, thank you so much.

W. Williams Youíre very welcome. Bye-bye.

M. Simpson Bye.

Moderator Have a question from Beth Beecham with Hollywood Junket. Please go ahead.

B. Beecham Hi, Wendy. Itís so nice to talk to you. Thank you for taking the time out.

W. Williams Thank you.

B. Beecham I really enjoy watching you. I had a couple of questions, if I can. I notice you and your husband were executive producers on Love Triangle. Is that correct?

W. Williams Yes.

B. Beecham I was curious what weíll see in the show, I guess thatís specifically stamped by you guys. I was just curious. I obviously havenít seen the show yet, but what Iíve ... Sorry.

W. Williams Well, you know the common thread that runs through that show from my talk show to that one is Ask Wendy, which I do on this show. I try to help people make the right decisions in their lives. Ask Wendy was also a part of my radio life prior to even having a talk show. So, that Love Triangle is people coming to me with help regarding something really important, and thatís love.

Also, my personality is definitely on the show. I am definitely me, with the jokes and the judgments, the stern looks, and the laughter. Yes, yes, I am me. Youíll definitely recognize the same Wendy on Love Triangle from the talk show.

B. Beecham Okay, great. Iím looking forward to it. Can I ask one more question?

W. Williams Sure.

B. Beecham Dancing with the Stars. I know that you were working on another show and youíre going back and forth. Do you feel like you were at a disadvantage because of that? Were you able to practice while you were in New York at all on the dance routines?

W. Williams Yes. I did all of my practicing in New Jersey near our house. Me and Tony actually practiced the five days a week on a regular basis like everybody else. I mean, there are some people who practiced eight hours a day. But, those people arenít currently working regular jobs. But, no.

You know what? Iím not going to blame my scores and being eliminated on lack of practice, because I gave Tony and that show my all. Flying back and forth, sure I had jet lag. But, Iím not going to fault that.

When I tell you Iím not a dancer, I really do mean Iím not a dancer. Tony was teaching a person with two left feet how to dance. I donít think the judges were fair in the way they scored me. I certainly, based on my co-dancers, think that I qualified to win Dancing with the Stars.

I donít feel as though I should have been eliminated so soon; however, Iím glad that I lost, because you know what? Itís nice to be back to regular life where Iím getting regular sleep, where my feet, which stayed swollen, and my left hip, which stayed swollen, and my knee, which stayed swollen. Everythingís subsiding.

Our ten-year old now has his mother and father back home. With my husband and I, because we do work together, when I leave to go do something, heís right there with me. Itís tough on our son, but he gets it and heís smart.

Itís also tough on my staff. Iím not always available in person to talk to them. I have to be on the phone, or sleeping, or something like that.

But, nothing in my life suffered as a result of the time that I spent with Dancing with the Stars. In total, I was involved with the project for six weeks. It was three weeks of rehearsing prior to even being on TV. Then, I survived three weeks of dancing. I think that was enough. Iíll be going back though, for the final dance and season finale.

B. Beecham Okay, I look forward to seeing you. I actually had forgotten I had another question regarding Love Triangle.

W. Williams Okay.

B. Beecham Iím curious when, in your opinion, youíre choosing between two different relationships with an adult whoís in their 30s or 40s. What do you think is the key ingredient to making the right choice?

W. Williams Choosing the right person based on your lifestyle. There was this one woman on the show. Sheís Ė very religious family Ė sheís a church girl. The guy who she fell in love with owns a sex shop and night club, both things. So, she wanted to choose him. She wanted to know if she chooses him, would he give up his two jobs, the ownership of the club and the sex shop, which were attached to each other, to be with her?

Iím like, is she out of her mind? Like not for nothing. You donít matter that much for me to give up my career for you. So, I think that lifestyle is extremely important. Lifestyle has to do with what career youíre in and what path youíre on in life. If you eat pork, then you certainly donít want to be with a vegan. Iím not giving up my pork to be with you. You know, we should have talked about these things before we even fell in love.

I just find it crazy that people get so involved with relationships, and they get so deep in. I mean, we can talk. If youíre a vegan and thatís a pork eater, then thatís supposed to be a one-night stand or a drive-by. You were never supposed to look in his eyes long enough to fall in love.

So, it amazes me how deep people get involved in things, and then they come to Love Triangle and try to sort things out. Itís a really interesting show. Itís entertaining. And, at the same time, itís very educational.

B. Beecham Okay, thank you, Wendy.

W. Williams Thank you.

B. Beecham Thank you. Bye.

Moderator Next question is from Lisa Steinberg with Starry Constellation Magazine. Please go ahead.

L. Steinberg Hi, itís a pleasure to speak with you.

W. Williams Hi, Lisa.

L. Steinberg Well, youíre an executive producer; you have so many hats going on. Youíre a host; you were a dancer. How do you balance it all?

W. Williams Very carefully. Very carefully and lots of moisturizer. Hereís the thing. Outside of Dancing with the Stars, everything that I try to do is something that comes natural to me. So, itís less work. I mean itís a lot of work, but itís less work.

Itís not easy having a talk show. But, for me, organically speaking, itís very easy to have conversations with people. Itís very easy for me to do hot topics and be excited about coming out and making it happen. So, half the job is done if it comes to me naturally.

Hosting Love Triangle is like it was a piece of cake. I love asking people questions, getting inside their heads. I love laughing with people and helping them in this relationship situation.

What wasnít easy is Dancing with the Stars. But, I took on that challenge and everything else was kind of pushed to the back burner for a moment. I would do it again. I enjoyed it, but Iím glad to be home.

L. Steinberg Why will people want to take their time to tune in and watch Love Triangle?

W. Williams Because it is an interesting slice of life, in the evening. When you come home from work and youíre unwinding, itís a sexy little adult game show on GSN. For me, the funnest game shows are relationship shows. Love triangles are very commonplace. Iím sure all of us at one point or another in our lives have been involved with a love triangle. Gosh, Iím dating both. But, Iím tired of this roller coaster. Who to choose and who to lose?

L. Steinberg Well, what would you like to say to everybody who is a fan and supporter of you and your work, and took some time out to vote for you?

W. Williams How are you doing? I would like to tell them thank you so much for supporting me on Dancing with the Stars. I hope I didnít disappoint you too much by having two left feet. But, the good news is that now Iím free to give my full attention to my hot topics and the Wendy show and Love Triangle, and the other projects that I have coming down the pike.

L. Steinberg And, your beautiful family.

W. Williams Most importantly, my family, which helps keep my sanity, which ultimately brings a smile to my face so I can be a better entertainer to my fans.

L. Steinberg Great. Thank you so much for your time.

W. Williams Thank you. Bye-bye.

Moderator Next question is from Topher Burns with Please go ahead.

W. Williams Topher, youíre back.

T. Burns Iím back, Wendy. I have another question. Like you, I am such a huge fan of this genre. Relationship shows are like you said, the juiciest, the hottest shows out there. Talk to me about relationship shows that you remember from the past, or favorites that you have now, ones that have inspired you, or ones that you think did it wrong, and maybe ways youíd like to improve the genre.

W. Williams I canít think of ones that did it wrong. I guess when Roger Lodge, and I forgot the name of his show. Roger Lodge had one. Then thereís one on BET called Hell Date, which still come on sometimes like three oíclock in the morning. Itís a hot mess, but I love it. Of course, The Newlywed Game, The Dating Game, Love Connection.

T. Burns Do you remember Fifth Wheel?

W. Williams Yes.

T. Burns Or, how about Blind Date?

W. Williams Blind Date was Roger Lodge. I think that was Roger Lodge.

T. Burns Yes, that was the one.

W. Williams I just love these shows, and I think they all get it right, because to me you canít get a dating show wrong. You get a good host, with a good personality, a little snappy, able to keep the show moving along. For our show, we have a studio audience. I refer to them from time to time. From where nice little visually interesting clothing, a very clean set, dimly lit for evening.

You immediately know when you turn it on, this is not a daytime show, itís for evening. Itís for adults. Itís sexy.

T. Burns Awesome, cool. Well, Iím looking forward to it.

W. Williams Thanks, Topher.

T. Burns Thank you.

W. Williams Bye-bye.

T. Burns Bye.

Moderator If you would like to ask a question, please press star, one. There are no questions in queue at this time.
