Aleta Parrish, who will be the guest host on today's edition of WJZ's "On Time" public-affairs show, isn't sure she's ready for the big time.But as far as Patrick Onley, the show's producer, is concerned, she's on her way."There is something about her that is very accessible," Mr. Onley says of Ms. Parrish, one of two winners of the show's recent guest-host contest. "This must be what people saw in Oprah."That's a flattering comparison for the 39-year-old Ms. Parrish, who would love to be host of a show like "People Are Talking," which Oprah Winfrey and Richard Sher steered while Ms. Winfrey was working for WJZ back in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Maryland Republicns will get a fundraising boost from Sen. Rand Paul tonight. Paul -- a Kentucky Republican often touted as a potential presidential candidate -- will speak to supporters at a fundraiser in Silver Spring. Individual tickets begin at $40 and sponsor-level tickets run as high as $2,000.

The image is pure show business, a scene ripped from the archives of HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show": As David Letterman lies in a New York City hospital bed, recovering from quintuple bypass surgery, agents and managers are calling up CBS' "The Late Show" to pitch clients as guest hosts. Oh, yes, and to ask how Letterman is doing. "My friend has had his chest ripped open, and within hours I'm getting calls from people who'd never given us the time of day who [now] wanted to guest host," "Late Show" executive producer Rob Burnett said last week.

Dan Bongino launched his first campaign for office on a laptop computer in his dining room. His wife, alone at his side, was the only other person he was sure would vote for him. Two years later, as the Severna Park man runs for the House of Representatives in Maryland's 6th Congressional District, he has taken on something of a celebrity status. Now, when he knocks on voters' doors, he's often recognized from his appearances on Fox News or national talk radio programs. Bongino faces a daunting task in attempting to unseat Rep. John Delaney, the deep-pocketed incumbent, in a district that was redrawn in 2011 to favor Democrat s . But no matter how next year's midterm election turns out, even Bongino's adversaries acknowledge he has quickly built a powerful political brand in the state that has given him a voice in Republican politics.

Interest in the 1994 Winter Olympics in general, and ice-skating in particular, can be gauged in advance, thanks to tonight's one-hour CBS special, "Nancy Kerrigan and Friends" -- in which, needless to say, Tonya Harding is not featured.* "Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?" (11:30 a.m.-noon, WBFF, Channel 45) -- Everywhere, it seems. She's been on computer games for almost a decade, and on PBS for a few seasons now, in a live-action geography-quiz format. This week another variation joins the mix, this one a cartoon action series -- which makes perfect sense, since cartoon characters are featured on the computer-game versions.

When Oprah Winfrey purchases 5,500 of your bags and gives them as gifts to guests at one of her conferences, it's safe to say that you a are a force to be reckoned with. Danielle DiFerdinando's brand of handbags and accessories, Danielle Nicole, has received a huge following in a relatively short amount of time. At the tender age of 26, DiFerdinando has already accomplished what veteran designers have waited their whole lives to do. She has the distinction of being the youngest vendor ever to be sold at Bergdorf Goodman, where she worked in the buying office and as a personal shopper for the famed luxury store.

On TV today, the special stuff comes early and late. Early, TC there's an "ABC News Special" in which Bill Clinton once again addresses young people's questions in a live format, moderated by Peter Jennings -- and, starting at noon on CBS, there are nine hours of college basketball. Late, there's "Saturday Night Live," with Helen Hunt as host. It can safely be predicted that she will turn in an exponentially better performance than last week's host, Nancy Kerrigan.* "President Clinton: Answering Children's Questions" (11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13)

John Oliver, who was so impressive as guest host of "The Daily Show," is leaving Comedy Central for HBO where he will have his own weekly comedy series, the premium channel announced Thursday. The show, which is scheduled to debut in 2014, will offer a satirical look at the week's events and air on Sunday nights -- the biggest night for HBO.

  Al Jazeera America's premiere week was one of the topics discussed on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday. Eric Deggans, a longtime friend and colleague, was guest host. Mohammed el-Nawawy, author of "Al-Jazeera: The Story of the Network that is Rattling Governments and Redefining Modern Journalism," and I were guests. My argument: Al Jazeera America, with its emphasis on diversity and identification with non-elite populations, expands the conversation of democracy in mainstream media.

Dear Dwayne, Two weeks ago I wrote about your return to WWE and quantified your statement: "I am never, ever going away. " I'm not one to repeat subjects too often, but in this case I simply couldn't avoid it. On Tuesday's episode of #AftermathTV on theScore , I ranted about you and your recent speeches in WWE, most notably your "Rock Concert. " Unfortunately we have a hard end on #AftermathTV and aren't able to go over time like RAW typically is able to do on the USA Network, so I had to keep my rant to 45 seconds.

WASHINGTON - The campaign trail is pretty much full of two things - snakes and rats. Oh, and TV cult personalities. In a moment of Surreality TV, Susan from "Survivor" joined Regis Philbin yesterday morning to interview Republican candidate George W. Bush about why he should win a million dollars. Sorry. Become president. No, Bush didn't have to eat a grub so he wouldn't be voted off the island (he merely had to convince Susan he'd give her a tax cut). And Regis did not even once ask the presidential hopeful if he needed a lifeline (Bush sounded pretty certain about all those platform questions and kept on playing)

CHICAGO -- The balcony is still open.Five months after Gene Siskel's death, Roger Ebert continues to give the thumbs-up and thumbs-down from the faux movie perch he shared with his film-critic partner for 24 years. Each week he still tapes "Siskel & Ebert," but now with a rotating set of guest critics. He continues to crank out numerous reviews and feature stories for the Chicago Sun-Times, to publish books and host film festivals. Washington Post critic Tom Shales, who was "Siskel & Ebert's" first guest critic when Siskel fell ill with brain cancer, describes Ebert as "possessed."
