Randy Jackson

End of the Dawg Era

Randy Jackson was the last original judge standing, but now that "American Idol" is giving him the boot ... who's the leading candidate to fill the dawg's shoes -- and will Mariah and Nicki Minaj be at each other's throats? Someone's hoping they will.

Plus, Mitt Romney's biggest campaign mistake ... Clint Eastwood! And not because the Hollywood icon fumbled through his schtick. It's all about timing .. really BAD timing.

Also, ridiculously hot ex "iCarly" star Emily Ratajkowski drops by the newsroom to talk meat, and rubbing up on a Playmate of the Year ... all for a commercial that's too hot for TV. And you gotta see what Emily says about her Google images!

(0:00) Republicans torpedoed Mitt Romney's big night -- by letting Clint Eastwood give one of the weirdest, worst speeches in history. Talking to an empty chair ... seriously?
(5:10) Harvey stands up for Mitt Romney -- he thinks it's unfair that Mitt has gotten a bad rap for being a successful business man. And on that not ... how bad was Clint Eastwood?
(10:00) Sage Stallone's cause of death was released -- and turns out, the 36-year-old died from a heart attack. But the question remains ... why did he have 50,000 prescription pills at his home?
(12:00) "American Idol" will never be the same again -- Randy Jackson will no longer be a judge ... and we have all the behind the scenes details about show's massive overhaul.
(16:40) We now know why Robin Roberts left "GMA" a day early -- her mother was really sick ... and died the next day.
(18:00) Buckle your seat belts -- the unbelievable hot, former "iCarly" star Emily Ratajkowski joins the show to talk about her sexy Carl's Jr. ad, and ... um ... some other stuff. Did we mention how freakin' hot she is?
(24:31) "Toddlers and Tiaras" finally crossed the line -- when a mom dresses her 4-year-old like a "Grease" character ... fake cigarette and all.
(28:10) Paul Ryan's college girlfriend -- who's African American -- wants NOTHING to do with his campaign.
(32:40) Simon Cowell saved the lives of nine people -- well ... the crew of his massive yacht did.
(34:30) Internet idiots unite, voting to have Taylor Swift play a concert at a school for the deaf ... but the jokes on them. We talk the headmaster of the Horace School for the Deaf, who says they'd love to have Taylor play there.
(39:00) Britney Spears sends out a photo of her in a bikini -- but Harvey and Charles have a laugh at how country her home in LA is. Thankfully, Gary defends her honor.
(42:00) We take your calls!

Haha the chemistry between Harvey and Charles is entertaining :D
The mix of sweet and sour, agreeing and disagreeing, is what people prefer to watch, been proven time and again in co-host settings; sweet-n-sour candy always outsells sweet-only candy on the store shelf.

I've been over the AI thing for afew years now, it's not about the singers anymore, at's all about how much to pay these overpaid "celebs" and "divas", it's disheartening to see how these women entertainers act and what they expect from other ppl that *hit and *iss the same way we all do. They are no better than anyone out here. They just have more money!! If they would go back to the basics of this show then maybe I would go back to watching.

You guys are ridiculous. Yes, dry humor and he was fantastic. How can you not see this? Romney was great no matter what and at least the convention had the confidence to include some sarcasm. Loosen up!
