Daily Highlights: Tuesday, September 14, 2010


At 9 PM The Bottom Line Sports Show’s Gerald Brown and Jonathan Foy give it up for former Knicks shooting guard John Starks, who was the first player in NBA history to hit 200 3-pointers in a single season— and remains the Knicks’ all-time scorer in that challenging category.

At 4 PM Movie Addict Headquarters’ Betty Jo Tucker goes one-on-one with Tony Todd, who played the title role in Clive Barker’s 1992 horror flick Candyman and its 3 sequels, before strutting his badd self on the little screen, as General Benjamin Juma in 24.

At 4 PM Host Bob Johnson whoops it up with The Daily Show’s Kristen Schaal, who played stalker-fan Mel on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords. Kristen will chat about her new book (written with beau—and fellow Daily Show staffer—Rich Blomquist), The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex.

At noon Movie Beat’s Rex Sikes hangs with Michael Paré, whose role opposite Tom Berenger in 1983’s Eddie and the Cruisers rocketed him to cult-hero status—and led to a career that has encompassed more than 70 flicks, including Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides.

At 130 PM Center Street welcomes celeb journalist Glenn Plaskin, whose new book, Katie Up and Down the Hall, tells the true story of “a man who discovers the true meaning of family after adopting a cocker spaniel puppy.” Golden Girl Betty White has called the memoir “an absolute delight.”

At 8 PM Get Up Show’s Chris LaMonica gets busy with Diane Dixon, who won a gold medal at the 1984 Olympic Games in the 4 x 400 relay race. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native will recount memorable, ah, run-ins with such A-listers as Bill Cosby and the late George Steinbrenner.
