Amy on Oprah

Amy Rezos, the Butler County woman whose husband tried to kill her three times last year, tells her story to Oprah Winfrey on national TV Friday (4 pm, Ch 9). Rezos lives in Liberty Township. Her husband is serving a 30-year jail term.

Kiese watching
Hey, reality bites! After a reward challenge for food on "Survivor: Guatemala," BOTH teams go to Tribal Council and each votes a member out. CBS says: "In a Tribal Council first, one castaway bullies and insults a fellow tribe member despite the attempts of others to keep the peace."

Jerry's Kids
So nobody from Cincinnati wanted to be Jerry Springer for a day? Imagine that! On Monday, "Jerry Springer" viewers will see the audition tapes from the five finalists for the "Be Jerry For A Day" national contest (from NYC, Chicago, Phoenix, Detroit and Tupelo). Viewers can vote for their favorites at Oct. 31-Nov. 11. The winner co-hosts with Jerry on Nov. 30.

More "Minutes" for Michael Jordan
CBS promises fewer commercials on Sunday's "60 Minutes" when Michael Jordan talks about his gambling. For the first time in its 37-year history, one advertiser (Phillips) has bought all the advertising for the show -- and agreed to give up half the spots, so there will be more content. A preview of Jordan's comments are in the paper today, and posted on our website. Here's the link:

I was thinking the same thing the other day. I keep missing Cold Case because of NFL since my TIVO doesn't pick up on the oversun. If the games always run over why not just plan for it?

Hi! It's too bad no one from Cincinnati was chosen as a finalist on the "Be Jerry For A Day" contest... that would have been more appropriate!
I'm the finalist from NY and my episode aired on Tuesday. My audition was cut down to only 30 seconds long, but what can ya do, right? Viewers can still vote all of next week and the week after at
