Tuesday Notebook

By Rich Heldenfels Published: February 5, 2013

If you missed last night's funny, Canadian-laden "How I Met Your Mother," you should go see it now, at If that seems like too much of an effort go here to see the latest video in the Robin Sparkles oeuvre.  Very '90s, very funny.

If you missed the news about Dick Russ leaving broadcasting, here's my story.

Katie Couric has scored an interview with Joe Paterno's widow. The official word:

For the first time since the shocking sex abuse scandal rocked Penn State’s football program, Sue Paterno sits down with Katie Couric for an exclusive interview that will broadcast on Couric’s nationally syndicated daytime talk show, “Katie.” Couric visited the widow of former Penn State coach Joe Paterno at her home, and will host Mrs. Paterno in-studio for her first conversation since the scandal broke and since she lost her beloved husband of 50 years. Joe Paterno passed away just two months after the scandal was exposed, leaving behind his wife and family, and many unanswered questions about what he knew and did not know. Mrs. Paterno will appear in an episode scheduled to air on Monday, February 11.

If you have been missing "Minute to Win It," not that I know anyone who does, it is getting a fresh cable run. That official word:

GSN has ordered 40 one-hour original episodes of the successful game show MINUTE TO WIN IT – marking the first time the series has been developed by a U.S. cable network. The episodes are to be produced by Shine America - based on the format owned by Shine’s sister company Friday TV. MINUTE TO WIN IT begins production in March and is slated to premiere in late 2013.

“MINUTE TO WIN IT is a buzzy, addictive and social media-friendly show and we are excited to be producing 40 new hour-long episodes,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN Executive Vice President, Programming.
