Tube News: Bill Clinton’s favorite TV shows, Punk’d, Jenna Fischer and Kelly Monaco

Bill Clinton’s favorite TV shows
Former President Bill Clinton loves Grey’s Anatomy and Boston Legal. Clinton told advertisers at the TV Land upfront presentation recently that his favorite current TV show is Grey’s Anatomy. He also enjoys Boston Legal for the “dynamic between William Shatner and James Spader.” Clinton said of the Denny Crane/Alan Shore relationship, “It's something to behold.” I find his choice of shows interesting for two reasons: Grey’s Anatomy is a medical drama about doctors whose libidos often dictate their actions. And Boston Legal is a show that ends each week with William Shatner and James Spader smoking cigars on the balcony. Hey, I’m not judging. I’m just saying.

Jenna Fischer poses nude
Jenna Fischer
, who plays Pam on the NBC show The Office, has posed nude for the cover of the April issue of Wired magazine. Before you get too excited, you should know that her naughty bits are tastefully hidden behind white signs that she's holding. Wired magazine insists the cover isn’t a cheap marketing ploy, but rather a metahpor for that issue’s stories about “radical transparency,” which is apparently the notion that the next sucessessful busines model is “laying your company bare to the world and sharing your corporate secrets with your rivals, blogging about ideas as you have them, and copping to fumbles and foibles as you make them.” In other words, transparency equals nakedness. I’m sure all that that won’t matter to most of America, who probably will be reading Wired for the first time ever. Quick, someone send Jim Halpert a copy.
