Live with Andy and Kelly

I did Live! today. As sometimes happens, Regis was on vacation. I usually don’t find out until the day of. I think the staff is conditioned to downplay Regis’s vacations in case guests cancel. As it happens, Andy Richter, Regis’s guest host, was great. Very funny and actually interested in the stuff. Kelly was her usual gracious and warm self. They’ve already asked me to plan another appearance in February.
Henry went with me this time. He took some pictures, yesterday during rehearsal. This is of the audience area – but, of course, there’s no one there when we rehearse.

This is their Christmas tree, before decorations.

I shot this video of Henry testing out the Karaoke machine.

Andy and Kelly had a great time with the karaoke machine. They also liked the Roomba robot vacuum and the Piano Avanti. Here’s a complete list of products I demoed on WNN and Live…

  1. Sounds like it was a good episode 🙂 Unfortunatly, I was at school – so I missed it.
    Once again, thanks for posting those pictures and that video of Henry 😀 lol

  2. Blue screen of death! LOL
    Bring the lights up, bring the lights up!
    Ok, it’s on,
    …bring the lights down, bring the lights down.
    Wow! Leo, Live Tv sure is some fun, huh?! You did a great job showing off all those gadgets and the fill-in dude for Reeg was pretty funny, too. I think the “Brick House” Karoke was worth the price of admission.

  3. Great gig on Regis and Kelly. Just wondered if you got a chance to catch Kate in her show? I read she got good reviews and was the only female in the cast. If I’m correct the name of the show was “Christmas with the Crawfords”. Have a Merry Little Christmas.

  4. Thanks for putting a link to the Karaoke thing that you had on “Live”. Their site does not have any info on it at all !
    Keep up the good work Leo – you rock !

  5. Saw you on the Regis & Kelly show without Regis.They sure didn’t give you much time to do your thing, hurry, hurry, hurry, you didn’t have time to be you’re jolly self and I missed that. Keep us posted on the Feb. show so I’ll be able to see if you can do any better. I enjoy the screen savers with you and Patrick and the girls too.

  6. FILL IN DUDE? EB how could you… Thats ANDY RICHTER! former co-host of Late Night With Conan O Brien… come on =) Regis is a joke compared to Andy.
    Looks pretty boring with nobody at that set…
    Your website is having issues connecting tonight for some reason… might want to talk to the ISP.
    Seeya,
    Dan

  7. I missed the show today because I made a mistake setting up the VCR. I was so disappointed. (It would have helped me a lot to decide whether to buy a TIVO or SonicBlue. Ironic, isn’t it?)
    I went to the Regis and Kelly site hoping to find a video of your appearance on the show, but to no avail.
    What I did find was a list of the items you showed on TV today; however, the links weren’t clickable.
    So I thought maybe you’d like to suggest to them next time that it would be a good idea to make clickable links, especially since older people have trouble copying and pasting the link. Just a thought.

  8. Leo, for some reason every time you’ve put up a QT video link, I can’t play it w/Mozilla. I have QT installed (in both Mozilla and Explorer). Is it possible to maybe make the video links like regular ones (downloadable) so we can download/play them or is that a (c) issue?
    Thanks! -Vin

  9. Leo, I think your QT link is broken.
    Also, you might want to consider taping some segments for The Screen Savers for when you are out of town. The Show is just different when you aren’t there. I notice Patrick, Morgan, Megan and Martin are all a lot more nervous when you are gone (but they are great too)…
    Just a thought…

  10. The Quicktime plays just fine for me in Mozilla on Mac OS X. I’ll check it in Windows when I get home. If I ever get home – they’re expecting heavy snow at Kennedy this morning.
    It’s an MP4 so it requires Quicktime 6. The link should check your version, but if it doesn’t, you can download an updated version of QT from http://www.apple.com/quicktime
    For some reason the webmaster at Regis and Kelly doesn’t believe in outside links. We’ve offered to create a page for them several times, but no luck. That’s why I put the links up here. -sigh-

  11. 😀 That Midas Remote Control Watch was the one that Martin had so much trouble with on TSS the other day, 😉 either he has a really hard time with technology sometimes or he’s just having *too* much fun. 😀
    Those Radio Shack Zip Zaps are about the only thing in my interest/price range, though I wouldn’t balk if someone bought me one of those Home Theater DLP Projector’s, but then again who would! 😉
    Good luck with the flight home, I know just how terribly boring it is being stuck, waiting… forever… at the airport.

  12. Leo,
    I was watching The Weather Channel, you might be coming home late…
    Then I watched CNBC, and if you’re flying United Airlines, you may not be coming home at all 🙂
    PS… did you mistype the Auravision Eluminix link? I keep getting a 404 error…
    PSS… I got QT to run after downloading QT6… I thought that Karaoke thing had a voice correction feature, or did Henry totally not know the words to the song? 🙂

  13. Great pix Leo! Looks like both Henry and Abby are aspiring photographers! 🙂 Great video too!
    Good luck getting a flight out. Hopefully it doesn’t get too bad, for too long. Have a safe trip back.

  14. Get those kids digital cameras! They are kick butt photographers! They even beat me. Grrr. I have competition now.

  15. I even updated the software but anytime I click on the link I get a window that says “Get plugin here” and when I click on that it says:
    Information on this page requires a plug-in for: text/plain
    And it tries to get me to download QT6.02 again, which I have. Weird. But if I use the view source page on the popup window and manually type the url into the player it’ll work.
    Hope that helps

  16. Hey Leo!! Man, how do you get so lucky and get to see and meet so many cool people?! Oh wait!! I got the answer!!! Because you’re LEO!!! Come and visit us in Madison WI, it’s worth it, there’s plenty of cool people to hang out with here.

  17. I’m not an expert, but isn’t “webmaster” and “doesn’t believe in outside links” an oxymoron?

  18. I love that robot vacuum, lol! It would make a great gag gift for Christmas if it were just a little cheaper!

  19. For people having trouble with the QT6:
    I had QT 5, and I had to uninstall it, then install QT6 fresh, not by upgrading QT5 by putting QT6 “over top of” the old version.
    I am using win 95. And IE.

  20. Thanks for showing the Kareoke, where can I purchase this fun little toy? Great show on Regis and Kelly. By the way, of course the only item they did not list on their website was the Kareoke.. See you in Feb,

  21. I use IE6 and Win98. At first I couldn’t play the QT. Then I updated to QT6. Then when I tried to play it, I got a message stating I needed another plugin, I said OK, and it automatically downloaded it. It warned that I may have to restart the QT movie after the downloaded plugin. It worked just fine after that.

  22. Just out of curiousity, if Live! airs (tapes)at 9 a.m., what time do you rehearse? Or, do you do that the afternoon before?
