Had a great time at The Queen Latifah Show today. The audience I was a part of was very energetic and I met some truly lovely people as we waited in the ready room. We were given free bags of Sheila G's delicious Brownie Brittle and were asked to tweet and post on Facebook, which is a very smart marketing tool for the show.
I was thrilled to see my tweets immediately displayed in big, beautiful glory on the large monitors throughout the room.
Wish I could have been closer to the stage but there really isn't a bad seat in the house.
This picture also doesn't do the gorgeous, modern set - designed by Lenny Kravits - justice.
The show shoots out of order, which is a little unusual for a talk show, but it was a pretty organized production. The first segment was actually being taped for a different show that will be airing in March. Guess that worked better for the guest's schedule. The guest in question?
Yep, my path crossed paths with Mr. Joe Mantegna - a.k.a SSA David Rossi on Criminal Minds - once again!
Then we watched a taping of a full show that featured conversations with Michelle Monaghan (HBO's True Detective) and Aaron Eckhart (I, Frankenstein).
As for Queen Latifah herself, she is stunning in person and is a very good host. She seems to be having a great time in the gig. After all, she won the People's Choice Award for Best New Talk Show and the talkfest has been renewed for a second season.
The Queen Latifah Show is a fun outing, so if you're in L.A. or coming here, get tickets and check it out for yourself!
The Queen Latifah Show airs Monday through Friday at 2 pm on CBS and reairs at 7 pm locally in Los Angeles on KCAL Channel 9.
