The show is UP: Tim Gunn!

Despite the troubles I ran into with the publicist for Liz Claiborne who kept interrupting to cut my time with Tim Gunn shorter than promised, the chat was fun and the rest of this show is pretty funny. How funny? While editing, something Miles said made me do this with my coffee.

Sept. 26: Gunning For Vegas

The nattiest man on TV is coming to the naughtiest city in America for the very first time. Tim Gunn, the mentor of TV’s Project Runway, will be here next weekend for an event as part of his role as chief creative director of Liz Claiborne, so Steve spoke to him about the hit fashion show, Vegas style and which celebrities Gunn would like to make over.

In Banter: Oscar's lame Colbert appearance, CBS' lame Defenders show, Palm Springs' lame anti-Vegas campaign, Skoosh.Com's lame biz practces, Hard Rock's lame lawsuit and more.
