THE BIG A&E STORY THIS WEEK IS:
President Barack Obama's West Coast trip this week included a stop at "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on October 25. Obama, who was traveling to raise money for his re-election bid and to try to gain more support for his jobs bill, made his fourth appearance on Leno's show, and the second since he became president.
He first appeared on the show in 2006 and again in 2007, and then became the first sitting president to appear on "The Tonight Show" with his
Obama then headed north to

We think that our President will have a fight on his hands for re-election, but if anything, he definitely has a knack of the talk show realm. Hmm who knows, he may have a budding new career after his Presidency is over. We can see him hosting a talk show. Don't you?
THE BIG STL NEWS STORY THIS WEEK IS:
Game Six of the World Series between the St. Lousi Cardinals and the Texas Rangers at Busch stadium was postponed Wednday dur to inclement weather and was rescheduled for Thursday nite and Game Seven, if needed would be played Friday nite instead of Thursday nite. St Louis Cardinals are currently trailing Rangers 3-2.
The World Series has shook up prime-time television viewing, helping Fox knock off CBS for the week. Three of the first four World Series games between
Fox has moved ahead of CBS for the season in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic it targets. That's unusual because Fox's season usually doesn't heat up until "American Idol" comes back on the air in January.
More than 15 million people watched the Series' fourth game on Sunday night, Nielsen said. That meant baseball eclipsed football;NBC's Sunday night NFL game had a season-low 12.5 million viewers, burdened with a non-competitive game between

Chicago's talk show goddess Oprah Winfrey wore a red portrait neckline gown and red heels to interview
Oprah initially interviewed Lauren in May on one of her final TV show episodes. But she didn't save any hard hitting q's for the second meeting, asking questions such as “How’d you get to be so darned American?” “Were you ever scared?” “What makes you most proud?”
Finally, Winfrey mused about never having seen an actual Lauren fashion show. And surprise, surprise, don't you know she got one. Lauren said, “Let me show you, Oprah" and more than 50 models walked the stage in designs from his Spring 2012 collection.
In the audience and at the post-show dinner included Jerry Seinfeld, Michael J. Fox, Matt Lauer, , Gayle King Michael J. Fox, Anderson Cooper, Deborah Roberts, Bryant and Hilary Gumbel, Martha Stewart, and Barbara Walters.
Some celebs even got to ask Lauren their own questions during the interview. Today show weather anchor Al Roker asked “Can I get a discount?" Lauren answered “Al Roker? Sure. I watch him all the time. Yes.” Williams wanted to know his favorite car. Lauren admitted, “That’s the hardest one. They are all like my children.”
In other words, a kissy kiss fest. LOL
As her husband was on the West Coast raising money for his campaign, First lady Michelle Obama returned home to Chicago Tuesday for two personal causes: improving the nation’s nutrition and helping feed her husband’s re-election campaign fund.
Speaking at a fundraising event at Plumbers Hall on the Near West Side, Obama recited a litany of President Barack Obama’s accomplishments and urged supporters to stay strong against GOP criticism.

Despite rampant rumors claiming Chicago native singer/actress Jennifer Hudson has called off her wedding to fiancé David Otunga, the singer’s rep clarifies that the big day will go ahead as planned. "I can confirm that the story is not true," the rep tells E! News.
According to Star Magazine, 30-year-old Hudson "abandoned plans to walk down the aisle" due to constant bickering between her and Otunga. The tabloid claimed the couple, who got engaged in 2008, were "clashing over Jennifer's career obsession, commitment issues and reluctance to have more children."
Another inside source for the tabloid explained, "David resents that she's so consumed by work." The so-called insider went on to add, "He's been pushing for baby No. 2, but Jennifer says she's not ready and throws out a million excuses."
Earlier in October, MediaTakeOut reported that J-Hud’s wedding to David was put on hold because of legal issues. The blog quoted a source inside
All false, says
We may not know the when or where, but one thing we know for sure,
Hmm, we think that her PR people are putting a good spin on this matter but our gut feeling is there is trouble in paradise and don’t think the wedding is going to go forward but likely the couple will just be there for their son.+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
