Regis Philbin in Times Square is talking via phone to a photo of Donald Trump. It isn’t the dullest conversation in the world, but it is flat and ordinary. A little bit ago the Reege was talking to new “singing sensation” Tyler Hilton. Then they played a teensy bit of his song and I changed stations really fast.

In advertising news, Chevy is now using an ersatz version of Golden Earring’s “Radar Love” to sell their cars. A paean to the great days of tv past when original pop songs were transformed by studio musicians into less-offensive whitebread muzak before being allowed on television so as to not frighten the hordes in the sticks, or simply failure to get the proper permissions to use the original recording?

Where is that goddamn asteroid?
