(0:00) Today's topics: Ron Artest's crazy name change, Lindsay's booze excuse, the "Jersey Shore" reboot, and the 2nd anniversay of MJ's death.
(6:00) Ron Artest in the house! So ... WHY did he change his name to Metta World Peace?
(7:50) What names did Artest pass on before choosing MWP?
(10:10) Hilarious ... Ron didn't even TELL HIS WIFE about the name change!
(16:00) Will Ron retire an L.A. Laker?
(25:00) Lindsay says she DIDN'T drink alcohol ... rather a fermented tea with a small alcohol content. So... Harvey and Jason do a TASTE TEST. You GOTTA see this ... because it ain't pretty.
(28:00) It's official -- Harvey wouldn't drink "horse piss" ... even if it were good for him.
(39:00) Crazy -- it's the 2nd anniversary of Michael Jackson's death ... which prompts Harvey to misspeak about the best part of his colonoscopy.
(46:30) The "Jersey Shore" cast will be changed after the fifth season ... is it good idea to disband their big stars?
(47:30) Mike says it's a great idea ... because MTV will not only cash in on the "J.S." spin-offs, but also interest in a whole new crew.

Between the fromal setup for sat radio and the "celebrity guest" there really isn't anything lawyery (i know its not a word) about friday anymore!

Flush-the-format on friday and answer legal questions like you used to! TMZ's legal analysis is what makes it unique!

My 9 year old niece told her teacher one day that she no longer wanted to be referred to by her given name but wished to be called "Anne" instead. I'm certain she was more serious about that name change than Ron "you can call me whatever you want" Artest. #starpower and #WorldPeace? Does not compute.

people want to see her fail because she is an unlikeable person, and acts if she's special as opposed to someone like david hasslehoff who we rooted for to get better cause he seems like a nice guy

Kombucha is rumored to help relieve/ cure some cancers. It is also said to help improve blood cell production and improve overall health. When it first entered the market it would sell out so fast that people would preorder and buy in bulk. Infact it could not be produced fast enough to replenish stock in several LA area Wholefoods stores.

Re "Al Roker" comment: Rule #1 in all broadcast studios -- assume that the mic is ON at all times. This has been known since the 1930s, when a kids' MC thought the mic was off and remarked "that ought to hold the little bastards." Alas, the mic was on, the comment went out live, and his career was dead. Once you walk in the doors of the studio, keep it clean, keep it professional. Of course, if networks hired intelligent persons instead of brain dead male and female eye candy.....

I think MJ will mostly be remember for the child molestation more than his music very sad.
