CBS viewers on April 1 might feel like someone is pulling an April Fools’ Day prank on them.
For the day, Craig Ferguson and Drew Carey are switching jobs, they announced Monday night. Ferguson will preside over The Price is Right in the morning, while Carey interviews comedy legend Carl Reiner, writer Connie Schultz and rocker Joan Jett on The Late Late Show, CBS said in a news release Tuesday.
Price’ models and announcer George Gray will join Carey on the late-night show. Ferguson’s sidekicks, a robot skeleton and pantomime horse, will replace the models during the daytime show, the network said.
No suit dismissal
A judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West against the co-founder of YouTube over the posting of footage of their marriage proposal on another website.
Superior Court Judge Ruth Ann Kwan on Tuesday rejected a dismissal motion that contended the suit violated the free speech rights of tech entrepreneur Chad Hurley.
Hurley said the suit should be dismissed because he posted the video after seeing other online photos and congratulatory notes from celebrities.
The couple’s lawyers say Hurley signed a confidentiality agreement saying he would not post video or images of the lavish engagement at San Francisco’s AT&T Park last year.
