Barbara Walters clearly needs to look up the definition of "fascinating"

    Okay, I can live with Gaga because she's a strange chick with some backstory. Could be interesting. But the others? Uh-uh. Sweet Tebow, she has no clue.

    Has she ever had a clue?

    I count at least 11 names on that list. So in addition to not understanding "fascinating" - she can't count.

    It's not a good show - a rehash of interviews she's already done.

    My top 10 people who came out of nowhere to become household names:
    Sully Sullenberger
    Glenn Beck
    Jaycee Dugard
    Balloon Boy dad
    Susan Boyle
    Carrie Prejean
    Jon and Kate
    Levi Johnston
    Adam Lambert

    What are the odds that any of these people would be on a magazine cover at the start of the year?

    KY clearly needs to look up the history of Barbara Walters. ::)

    She's a caricature now, but she was a pretty significant TV pioneer. Look her up.

    DanO: That's a good list. But I think there's a "most fascinating" list (like yours) and a "who will do an interview list of people who are kind/sorta fascinating" (Barbara's)

    How is it a top 10 list when there are 11 people on the list? And a 12th name to be announced on the show?

    This life form must be duodecimal-based, Jim.

    I'm guessing she's counting Jackson's children as one entry on the list.

    Perhaps it will be sponsored by a Macy's one-day sale that runs Friday and Saturday.

    Maybe it takes place in the Midwest in such places as Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota and Indiana.
