Hide the Women and Children! I’m Going to Be on the Katie Couric Show Next Monday!

Set your DVRs and prepare to laugh harder than you have since keyboard cat stole our Internet hearts. Yes indeed, this Monday, September 17, 2012 at 3 p.m. (Check your local listings, it’s 4 p.m. in some areas), I’ll be one of a few men joining the lovely and talented Katie Couric on her new show Katie.

What are we going to talk about? Real manly things like football, scotch, and cigars. Maybe some poker too for good measure. Oh wait. Sorry. You wanted the truth? We’re uh… We’re talking about Fifty Shades of Grey. What? You couldn’t hear me? No worries, I can just… Sigh. Okay fine.

I’m going on the Katie Couric show next week to talk about the book Fifty Shades of Grey. Happy now? Yeah, I can tell from your laughter that you’re spirits are lifted.

So how’d this come about? Long story short, I’ve written a number of articles about the book for The Stir (Why ’50 Shades of Grey’ Is a Must-Buy for Every Guy and ’50 Shades of Grey’: The Daddy Porn Edition). And this Monday, Katie’s having author Fifty Shades author E L James on the show.

For one of the segments, she wants to talk to a few men who’ve actually read the book. Somehow Katie’s producers found out I had read the book, we got to talking, and the next thing I knew, I’m heading down to NYC this Monday morning for a taping.

My only fear is that when I start complaining about the book, the rabid audience will start pelting me with rotten fruit. Other than that, I’m hoping to have a great time, and certainly expect to get at least one great follow-up blog post!

Oh, and maybe Katie will be so enamored by me, she’ll offer me a job. Or a cookie. They have cookies in the green room, right?

Don’t forget to watch Katie this Monday at 3 p.m.!

  1. There are actually women who believe that the “Shades” books are trite, insipid and horribly written. Would rather have had dental work done. Too bad k couldn’t get a refund of my time spent reading it.

  2. What an amazing experience! I would be so freakin’ nervous but I would do it. As for the book, I read all three because I had to see what happened. I wouldn’t say it was the best series of books but not the worse. I liked “some” 😉 of the book but there were a lot of annoying parts and every fight the two of them had was the same darn thing, which just got on my nerves. It is almost a hate/like relationship ( I wouldn’t say love I didn’t love them), the terms “Holy” this and that drove me crazy, and many times I wanted to reach into the pages (or my stereo because I listened to them) and slap the both of them and just say “Hey you both love each other damin it get over it!” LOL

    Good luck hope you aren’t too nervous Monday.

  3. Oh boy. For added fun Andrew see how many comic book references you can make. And you have to use the word craptastic at least once.

    • If they throw cookies, I am so going to try catching them in my mouth! Thanks, Nichol. Hope I don’t embarrass myself… too much.
