Pat Sajak strides into the Annapolis radio station that he owns, slips on a pair of radio headphones and begins taping a two-minute commentary on the subject "Life is a risky business." His script, on everyday risks, was inspired by a friend scolding him for eating a hamburger and french fries. "You weigh the risks against the rewards, the drawbacks against the pleasures, and the yogurt against the ice cream," he says in a clear, ebullient voice as the tape rolls. In the best of modern worlds, he adds, knowing that eating a candy bar would take precisely 12 seconds off your life would come in handy: "Then you could make an intelligent decision."

Game-show host Pat Sajak, who sent the Internet all aflutter this week when he acknowledged taping an occasional "Wheel of Fortune" episode while drunk back in his younger days, isn't fazed by his newfound online notoriety.

Now, from the nation's top-rated, toughest-talking, highest-decibel cable news station, comes a new hour-long show from one of the country's least threatening people: game--show host Pat Sajak. Pat Sajak Weekend premiered Sunday night at 9 on the Fox News Channel, with talk show host Regis Philbin and comedian Robert Klein as guests. At 56, Sajak's cherubic cheeks may seem a bit thinner and his graying hair a little pouffier, but he still has his youthful charm and energy. Sajak, a former local television weather forecaster known best as the long-time host of Wheel of Fortune, says he hopes to create a place of respite each week for people exhausted by the news.

So, do you believe that "Seinfeld" news?No, not the fact that the Four Horsemen of Neuroticness - Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer - are finally riding off into the sunset after this season. That probably should have happened a couple of seasons ago, before the show stopped being really funny.No, I'm talking about the fact that the NBC brass - the same geniuses who sent Letterman packing a few years back - proudly announced that they were ready to pay Jerry Seinfeld $5 million per episode to crank out one more season of shows about nothing.
