OUTSTANDING TALK SHOW INFORMATIVE
Anderson, September 19, 2011, Episode 1010, The Story of My
Mom: Gloria Vanderbilt Running Time: 41:52
Anderson Cooper submitted a show focusing on his mother,
Gloria Vanderbilt, and the show focuses on some of the struggles she had during
her early life to raising her children.
The episode is very poignant at times, especially when reflecting on her
son Carter who committed suicide and is balanced with some comedic moments from
guests Kathy Griffin and Judy Collins. The show also focuses on some of Cooper’s
successes with journalism.
The Doctors, May 2, 2011, #D3143, TRUTH or DARE: We Dare You to Get Healthy, Running
This episode was a fun one showcasing various myths
surrounding various subjects such as protein to the use of snails for a source
of collagen and presents challenges in which the doctors all face various fears
surrounding the information. The
doctors present a fun time showcasing them eating spicy foods, eating
protein-related insects, and being exposed
to cold water. Entertaining at times,
but I would not expect them to win.
The Dr. Oz Show, November 23, 2011, Episode #3-058
Dr. Oz focuses his submitted episode on various people who
are uninsured in America and showcases women who have had problems with cancer,
a man with a defective pacemaker and how it relates to lack of care because of
not having insurance. The show also
focuses on ways in which individuals have bettered their lives because of shows
that they have seen on this show. A
very strong submission, and the likely winner.
The Dr. Oz Show
I agree with Dr. Oz as the likely winner. The episode was a real grabber and kept you involved. The Doctors seemd to be built around the afraid of snake moment by Stork. Sometimes Anderson struck me as category fraud. It seemed to be very entertainment oriented. Anderson has an impressive studio-with the big window backdrop.
