This wacky duo stole our hearts during their skating coverage at the 2014 Winter Olympics. (Seriously, we’ve asked politely, but they refuse to give back our hearts.) And while hiring Lipinski and Weir might cause a few headaches in the show’s wardrobe department, the commentary would be so worth the effort.
Ann Curry has been mostly MIA at NBC since getting the boot from Today in 2012. She’s a solid interviewer, a respected newswoman — and dammit, we need a McCaughey sextuplet update! (Just promise us no tears when you get fired and replaced by Erin Burnett.)
While we’ve enjoyed watching her get dramatic on The Fosters, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t miss Rosie O’Donnell, the host. To be clear, though, we want old-school Rosie, flying Koosh balls and all. And, of course, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is welcome to drop by anytime.
Speaking of The View alumna, we miss Joy Behar. The 14-time Daytime Emmy nominee (including one win!) was so good at making us laugh, think and cringe all at once — a task which now falls on the shoulders of Barbara Walters and her special friend “Selfie.” Like we said, we miss Joy Behar.
Now that she’s been formally eliminated from Dancing With The Stars, Brooke Burke-Charvet needs a new place to hang her million-dollar smile. This could actually be a great fit, as most critics agreed that Morgan’s show displayed a serious lack of Viennese Waltz.
JANE LYNCH (AS GLEE‘s SUE SYLVESTER)
We’re always curious to know how Sue Sylvester “C’s” important world issues, and with regular guests like Becky and (former) Principal Figgins, she’d be guaranteed tens of viewers, at least.
PARKS AND REC‘s JOAN CALLAMEZZO
The world simply doesn’t have enough “Gotcha!” journalism these days, and something tells us Pawnee’s manic talk show hostess would welcome the sizable promotion. Hopefully, CNN would also allow room in its budget for her back-up dancers.
His original talk show, ironically titled ALF’s Hit Talk Show, had a wildly unsuccessful seven-episode run on TV Land in 2004 — but there’s just something about that bizarrely adorable snout that screams, “Give me a second a chance!” (Hide your cats.)
