    Jiminy Glick was born in 1948, in Akron, Ohio, the youngest of eleven children born to Omar and Isabella Glickman. Sickly as a child, Jiminy had to be privately tutored until the age of thirteen, when doctors discovered his "ailment" was merely the result of a swallowed Tonka truck that had lodged in his duodenum. After graduating from Gale Gordon High School, he enrolled at the prestigious DeVry Institute of Technology, but left after the first semester when he won the role of Onlooker #2 in a bus-and-truck theater production of "Forty Karats," starring Miss Lana Turner. By the time he was thirty, Glick had grown confident enough to move out of his parents' house and pursue a career in acting. Hollywood was beckoning and Jiminy answered the call. Sure enough, he landed a job as a bus boy at Chasen's, where he stayed for the next eight years. He worked only occasionally as an actor, most notably as Buddy Ebsen's kleptomaniac nephew in a "Barnaby Jones" two-parter. Despite a series of mixed reviews, Glick found acting jobs few and far between and was ultimately forced to take a position as personal assistant to the legendary Charles "Death Wish" Bronson. He remained in that lofty capacity for five turbulent years. Then, in 1991, while moonlighting as a bartender's assistant at Roddy McDowell's traditional "People's Choice Award" after-party, he befriended former "Laugh-In" producer George Schlatter. As luck would have it, Schlatter was looking for a host for his new syndicated celebrity interview show, "LalaWood." Glick got the nod and, after two short years, "LalaWood" rocketed into the top 100. "Thank God he's a man and he's so fat or I'd be worried about my job. He's that good!" - Barbara Walters Glick now lives in Tarzana, with his wife of twenty-three years, Dixie, and their four sons: Morgan, Mason, Matthew and Modine. When he's not hosting his current show, "Prime-time Glick," you'll most likely find Jiminy coaching his sons' little league team, rebuilding the engine of one of his classic cars or browsing for antiques. Martin Short plays Glick. Glick will try to interview celebrity guests, hoping to remember their names... Jiminy Glick is a spin-off of The Martin Short Show (1999)moreless

Get Schooled follows three young professionals who have achieved tremendous success at a young age. In entertainment, we meet Kelly Clarkson's Music Director as he works with Kelly to prepare her for an upcoming performance. In sports, we meet LeBron James' marketing manager as she explains what her job is and the unconventional education route she took to land this esteemed position. In politics and writing, we learn who Barack Obama's speech writer is, and how such a young man became not only a member of the President's inner circle, but a man in charge of presenting the President's ideas to the public. Get Schooled will help ambitious students see the light at the end of the tunnel, and the importance of sticking with school.moreless

    PBS
    Ken Burns: America is a historical documentary TV series developed by PBS that follows the award winning and acclaimed historical documentaries of Ken Burns, an American director known for his intimate and no-hold approach in his films. In the America series, Burns has spent the past twenty years telling the stories of topics deeply ingrained in the history and culture of what makes America what it is today. From the deeply American classic of baseball with its die hard fans and memories and myths that cross all generations (Baseball) to the bloody war between brothers in the civil war (The Civil War) to the development and dominance of America’s first form of mass medium in the form of the radio (Empire of the Air), Ken Burns holds nothing back in sharing, enlightening, and expanding upon the knowledge of who, what, when, where, why, and how these pieces of the United States became the defining factors of the American people and, in some ways, the world. Baseball, the Civil War, radio, inventor Frank Lloyd Wright, the infamous development of Jazz, the unparalleled achievement of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and the Women’s Movement with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony are all just some of what Ken Burns considers American Stories.moreless
