Laugh Track: Horse Sense
Actor Jeff Bridges appeared on CBS’ “The Late Show” last night and talked about attending this year’s Kentucky Derby, noting he “happened to bet on the winning horse,” Always Dreaming. Host Stephen Colbert asked, “Was this like high-class Kentucky Derby? Because I went there when I was in college and I did the infield, which is a snake pit.” Bridges: “I got to say, ‘Riders up!’” Colbert: “They say that at the ‘Magic Mike’ show too” (“The Late Show,” CBS, 9/20).
Tennis player Maria Sharapova appeared on NBC's “Last Call” and promoted her new memoir, “Unstoppable: My Life So Far.” She again discussed her comeback at the U.S. Open after a doping suspension. Sharapova: “Throughout the whole (suspension), I was determined to get back on the court, to produce the type of (effort) that I played with in that first-round match” (“Last Call,” NBC, 9/21).
