    From Pravda... I mean, Fox News (oops!): http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,183361,00.html

    Where's the mention about GSN and 'What's My Line?'

    I'm surprised they didn't mention Lawrence Welk.

    Someone who figures these "18-34" numbers out must think that when you turn 35 you automatically go blind and your ears fall off.

    Oh, and by the way, Lawrence can still be seen occasionally on PBS specials.

    Oh yes, that's a PBS fundraising staple, it seems. I believe the show last ran in syndication in 1982. I'm sure its PBS audience now skews pretty over the 18-49 group, but then again, that group has money to send to pledge drives.

    For sure, it's those fancy gift bags they give away for $100 pledges that quickly make me want to whip out my credit card and grab the phone.

    There was a funny episode of the old Jack Benny TV program where Lawrence Welk comes on and directs the orchestra beautifully. Then, when Benny tries it, it sounds like the old fire company band from "Petticoat Junction."
