RUSH: Get this. President Clinton is a big fan of ’24.’ Everybody wants to get in the act. ‘President Bill Clinton is a big fan of ’24’ even though ‘an uber right-wing guy’ produces the Emmy-winning political thriller. Clinton told TV advertisers Friday that his favorite show is the medical drama ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and he appreciates ‘Boston Legal’ for the dynamic between William Shatner and James Spader. ‘It’s something to behold,’ he said.’
I have to tell you, I’m a little worried because these are three of my favorite shows. I used to make fun of Grey’s Anatomy but you get hooked on it. ‘As for ’24,’ which was co-created by noted Republican Joel Surnow, Clinton said he enjoys the fact that conservatives and liberals alike can be the bad guys in the show. ‘They’re trying to be fair,’ Clinton said. His other must-see TV shows include ‘All in the Family,’ ‘I Love Lucy,’ ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and ‘Bonanza’ — all of which air on TV Land, which sponsored his appearance.’
Now, folks, does anybody believe this? There was Hillary out in Beverly Hills over the weekend raising 2.6 large. Does anybody think Bill Clinton’s at home watching Andy Griffith and Barney Fife? (Laughing.) Of course, the Drive-Bys are just eating this up. Clinton says, (doing Clinton impression) ‘My wife’s away a lot out there. She’s on the campaign trail. So I’m home alone a lot, and I’m particularly grateful to TV Land for giving me something to do at night.’
Jeez. Can you believe this? (laughing)
So he’s watching Andy Griffith and he’s watching Bonanza and I Love Lucy on TV Land, and they just happen to be his sponsors.
