Tell me more about
Michael Weatherly,
who plays DiNozzo on NCIS.
Helen Totilo, Norwalk, Conn.
Weatherly, 42, calls NCIS
“the coolest place I’ve ever
worked.” In his down time, he
hangs with his wife, Bojana, 31,
a resident in internal medicine
in Los Angeles. “I feel like I
kind of hit the jackpot” marrying her, says the star, who credits NCIS
for the “stable” life that also has allowed
him to spend time with his 15-year-old
son, August, from his first marriage to
actress Amelia Heinle. Away from
work, the couple decompress by renovating their house in Jamaica and going
on hikes in the Hollywood Hills with
their two dogs.
Q
Whatever happened to Kathleen
Parker of CNN’s Parker Spitzer?
Christine Loncki, New Castle, Del.
Pulitzer Prize-winning scribe Kathleen Parker left CNN in February,
after the cable network announced
that it was dropping her show and
replacing it with In the Arena, featuring
Eliot Spitzer and other newsmakers. At
the time, Parker said she was leaving to
focus on her writing, and she said that
“with the show going in
a new direction, it is
a good time to
move on.” These
days,
Parker
remains a popular syndicated columnist.

Equestrienne Georgina Bloomberg — New York City
mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 28-year-old daughter —
draws inspiration from her own experiences as a young
girl amid horses for the plotlines in her new series of
young-adult novels, the first, The A Circuit, now in
stores. “There was not a great horse book that I could
think of that I read when I was growing up, so this is
something exciting to be able to do,” Bloomberg
says. . . . For Garcelle Beauvais, the best part
about her new TV series — Franklin & Bash (Wednesday, 9 p.m. ET, TNT) — is that she’s not the star. “I

COVER AND COVER STORY PHOTOGRAPHS BY CHARLES BUSH, SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT
SWELL
NEWS
emerged in
February
that the IBM
supercomputer called Watson would be taking
on Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, it was
hard not to feel a slight shudder:
Now they’ve come for our game
shows. But the contest, aside
from demonstrating that an electrical signal is faster than a fleshand-blood thumb, ended up just
reminding us — as Ken and
Brad simmered and struggled
— why TV game shows have
been popular almost from
the medium’s inception.
It’s about who wins or loses, yes, but it’s also about
the display of human
hopes and fears, laughter and disappointment.
Two of the most popular game shows in television history, Jeopardy! and
Wheel of Fortune, have
thrived for decades because
they offered the pleasures of
playing at home — can you
beat the folks on-screen? —
and of watching the contestants’ emotional roller-coaster ride. But essential ingredients for both shows are
their hosts: Jeopardy!’s Alex
Trebek and Wheel’s Pat Sajak, who say that the secret
of their success and professional longevity — 27 years for
Trebek, 30 for Sajak — is that
they recognize what really matters to the games. “Realize first
of all that you are not the star.
The star is the game and the
contestants,” Trebek says.
And yet the two hosts’ very
unobtrusiveness — they are so
charming and genial that you
hardly notice the steely efficiency
with which they move the shows
along — is what helped ensure
they have become fixtures in millions of U.S. homes since the early
1980s. Now Trebek and Sajak are
getting lifetime achievement
awards from the Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards.
“There is something disconcerting about the term ‘lifetime
achievement’ because there are
certain implications,” Sajak says.
Indeed, even though he’s still happily letting Wheel contestants buy
a vowel and Trebek is cheerfully
taking Daily Double wagers on
Jeopardy!, it’s not clear how much
longer that will be the case.
Trebek sounds as if he’ll be the
first to unplug his microphone. “I
have three years on my contract
and I keep telling the guys, hey, I
don’t think I’m going to make it to
the end,” Trebek says. “The thing
that would prompt me to leave
would be if I saw a significant
diminution in my ability to do a
good job.” Still, he says, three
more years would give him an
even 30: “That has a nice sound to
it. Complete the circle.”
Sajak, having already reached
his 30th year with Wheel, says,
“I’d like to leave when the show is
still No. 1”— it has ruled nighttime syndication since 1984 — “or
still very popular, and I would like
to leave before people start saying, ‘What the hell happened to
him?’ ”
In some ways, the lifetime
achievement Emmys also will be
recognizing the role that the tele-
vision game shows themselves
have played in American popular
culture. When Truth or Consequences launched on TV in 1950
with host Ralph Edwards, the
show and the host were already a
decade-long radio success. Quickly, though, game shows became a
television signature. Their
popularity, Trebek says,
was tied to “the American
dream. Anybody can be
president, anybody can
be rich, anybody can be
famous, anybody can win, and
game shows provide ordinary
citizens with an opportunity to
do that.”
From the start, the term game
show has been applied to an astonishing variety of programs. The
genre has embraced everything
from Let’s Make a Deal and Deal
or No Deal to The
Newlywed Game and
Love
Connection.
The quiz show scandals of the 1950s sunk
that subgenre for
nearly half a century,
but it surged back a
dozen years ago with
Who Wants to Be a
Millionaire and then
The Weakest Link be-
fore its popularity faded in the age
of Google.
Game shows also have been
prodigious generators of pop-culture catchphrases. “Final answer?” evokes Regis Philbin on
Millionaire. But that line is just
one in a game-show lexicon that
includes Monty Hall’s “Is it door
No. 1 . . . ” on Let’s Make a Deal,
Bob Barker’s “Come on down” on
The Price Is Right, and Richard
Dawson’s “Survey says . . . ” on
Family Feud.
The heyday of game shows has
clearly passed — the Game Show
Network, where it always
seems to be 1974, with Gene
Rayburn’s Match Game,
gives a glimpse of the golden age. Game shows have been
casualties, like so much else on
TV, of audience declines and
the fracturing of interests.
In truth, though,
game shows are still
doing well — but under an assumed
identity: “reality”
television. After all,
Trebek says, programs like Survivor
and The Amazing
Race are really just
bulked-up
game
shows: “The games
are a little more involved, and the prizes are substantial.”
And, he says, “you
see a lot of emotions.” Until IBM
figures out how to
make Watson laugh
or cry, TV audiences
are still going to
seek out shows
where they can
watch the games
people play. 6
Game shows showcase
hopes, fears, laughter
and disappointment

Game and Monty Halls'

1960s, and both were
later revived.

while icing). Using a knife or offset spatula, spread about z
of the frosting over cake top; sprinkle generously with
coconut. Place the next layer (top-side up) over the first.
Spread remaining frosting evenly on cake top and sides.
Sprinkle top generously with coconut. Using an opened
hand, gently press remaining coconut around cake
perimeter. Remove parchment strips; refrigerate cake until
frosting sets, about 30 minutes. Slice and serve. 6

Inspire your kids to read
BY BRIAN TRUITT
Mega-selling author James Patterson
says that this summer, it’s up to you
to find books your kids will love.
P
ARENTS, REJOICE!
Even
the planet’s best-selling
author didn’t like to read
when he was a kid. “I
preferred to go out and run
around and do sports,” recalls author James Patterson.
He may not be as well
known as J.K. Rowling
or John Grisham, but
Patterson is king of the
“beach read,” including
the mega-selling Alex
Cross thriller series, with more
than 220 million books sold worldwide and, yes, a best-selling author of young-adult fiction.
Now, Patterson scores another
publishing feat: a new adult thriller and a new children’s book on
the same day. Now You See Her
and Middle School: The Worst
Years of My Life are out June 27.
How did Patterson morph from
rambunctious kid to titan of the
written tale? Something stirred
him (though he wasn’t shaken).
“One of my friends got into the
James Bond stuff in grade school,
but he was one of the only kids
who read,” recalls Patterson, who
grew up in Newburgh,
N.Y. It wasn’t until his
years at Manhattan
College that he caught
the reading bug.
“I worked my way
through college at a
mental hospital, and I worked a
lot of night shifts,” Patterson
says. “I started reading like
crazy.”
Now, Patterson, 64, who has a
13-year-old son named Jack, deploys much of his sizable energy
trying to change the reading habits of the world’s children. In summer, “they’ve got time, they don’t
have two or three hours of homework, and we need to change this
‘Change this
notion that
reading is
a chore.’

Patterson picks 5
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by
Brian Selznick (ages 9 and up):
“Great writing and great illustrations. Worth re-reading and poring over all 554 pages. Can’t wait
for the Scorsese movie.”
Hey Batta Batta Swing!: The Wild
Old Days of Baseball by Sally Cook
and James Charlton (ages 8 and
up): “This is a charming and hilarious tale that fantasizes about the
beginnings of baseball. A sure hit
with boys.”
Swindle by Gordon Korman (ages
9-12): “Sixth-grader Griffin finds an
original Babe Ruth baseball card,
and is swindled out of it by the
owner of the local memorabilia
shop. He and his pals aren’t going
to let the swindler get away
with it. ”
Holes by Louis Sachar (ages 10
and up): “After you read Sideways Stories From Wayside
School, pick up Holes. Summer
is all about required laughter, if
required anything.”
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay
Asher (ages 13 and up): “I had
to choose between this and
Hate List by Jennifer Brown
for a darker book choice.
The death of a teenager is
too hard for anyone to
process, but these two
books try to make some
sense out of it.” 6

cool.”
Patterson is a big believer that the more

they get at it — one

Middle School, and the
main reason behind
ReadKiddoRead.com,
his website dedicated to
giving parents and teachers a resource for turning children of any
age on to great books.
But for Patterson, home is
where the good habits start.
“It’s the parents’ job to find
books for kids that they’re gonna
love,” he says. “A lot of parents
don’t get that.
One of my best
friends’ wife died
when his boys
were young, and
he did a great job.
But it didn’t occur
to him that it was
his job to find
books for
the kids.”

YOU’RE THE SAME AGE AS YOUR DAD WHEN HE HAD A HEART ATTACK.
LIKE HIM, YOU STILL HAVEN’T LOWERED YOUR HIGH CHOLESTEROL ENOUGH.
There’s early heart disease in your
family, so your own risk of heart
attack is higher. It’s time to stop

your high cholesterol to help
reduce your risk of heart attack.
When healthy diet and exercise
are not enough, adding Lipitor

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
LIPITOR is not for everyone.
It is not for those with liver
problems. And it is not for women
who are nursing, pregnant or
may become pregnant.
INDICATION:
LIPITOR is a prescription medicine
that is used along with a low-fat
diet. It lowers the LDL (“bad”
cholesterol) and triglycerides
in your blood. It can raise your
HDL (“good” cholesterol) as
well. LIPITOR can lower the
risk for heart attack, stroke,
certain types of heart surgery,
and chest pain in patients
who have heart disease or risk
factors for heart disease such
as age, smoking, high blood
pressure, low HDL, or family
history of early heart disease.

and low good cholesterol.
If you take LIPITOR, tell your
doctor if you feel any new muscle
pain or weakness. This could
be a sign of rare but serious
muscle side effects. Tell your
doctor about all medications
you take. This may help avoid
serious drug interactions. Your
doctor should do blood tests

Advice from
LOWERING YOUR HIGH CHOLESTEROL
High cholesterol is more than just a number, it’s a risk
factor that should not be ignored. If your doctor said you
have high cholesterol, you may be at an increased risk for
heart attack and stroke. But the good news is, you can
take steps to lower your cholesterol.
With the help of your doctor and a cholesterol-lowering
medicine like LIPITOR, along with diet and exercise, you
could be on your way to lowering your cholesterol.
Ready to start eating right and exercising more? Talk to
your doctor and visit the American Heart Association at
www.americanheart.org.
WHO IS LIPITOR FOR?
Who can take LIPITOR:
• People who cannot lower their cholesterol enough with
diet and exercise
• Adults and children over 10
Who should NOT take LIPITOR:
• Women who are pregnant, may be pregnant, or may become

• Women who are breast-feeding. LIPITOR can pass into
your breast milk and may harm your baby.
• People with liver problems
• People allergic to anything in LIPITOR
BEFORE YOU START LIPITOR
Tell your doctor:
• About all medications you take, including prescriptions,
over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal
supplements
• If you have muscle aches or weakness
• If you drink more than 2 alcoholic drinks a day
• If you have diabetes or kidney problems
• If you have a thyroid problem
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF LIPITOR
Serious side effects in a small number of people:
• Muscle problems that can lead to kidney problems, including
kidney failure. Your chance for muscle problems is higher
if you take certain other medicines with LIPITOR.
• Liver problems. Your doctor may do blood tests to check
your liver before you start LIPITOR and while you are
taking it.
Call your doctor right away if you have:
• Unexplained muscle weakness or pain, especially if you
have a fever or feel very tired
• Allergic reactions including swelling of the face, lips,
tongue, and/or throat that may cause difficulty in breathing
or swallowing which may require treatment right away

Do:
• Take LIPITOR as prescribed by your doctor.
• Try to eat heart-healthy foods while you take LIPITOR.
• Take LIPITOR at any time of day, with or without food.
• If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember.
But if it has been more than 12 hours since your missed
dose, wait. Take the next dose at your regular time.
Don’t:
• Do not change or stop your dose before talking to your doctor.
• Do not start new medicines before talking to your doctor.
• Do not give your LIPITOR to other people. It may harm
them even if your problems are the same.
• Do not break the tablet.

Quick solutions to some
of summer’s challenges
A
THE BEACH, in the
park or even just hanging out in your backyard, summer is all about fun in
the sun — that is, until someone
gets hurt. Here’s how to treat
some common injuries:
Cuts and scrapes. No need
to dig out the hydrogen peroxide: All you need is clean water
(to rinse the wound) and a little
soap (to clean the skin around
the cut); anything stronger can
cause irritation. Skip the antibiotic ointment, too: Exposure
to fresh air is the quickest way
to allow wounds to dry and heal
(any creams will keep it moist).
If the scrape is in a spot that will
easily get dirty (like your hand)
or rubbed by clothing (like your
knee), cover it with a bandage;
otherwise, leave it be.
Bee stings. All that pain is
from the little bugger jabbing a
barbed stinger with an attached
venom sac into your skin. Pocket the tweezers (which may end
up squeezing out more venom)
and instead use your clean fingernail or the edge of a credit
card to scrape the stinger out.
Wash the area with soap and
water, and apply ice or a cold
compress to relieve pain and
reduce swelling. If you become

or you start

911 — those are symptoms of a

could be fatal.
Poison ivy rash. The itchiness, redness and swelling is
caused by an oily substance
called urushiol, found in poison
ivy, poison oak and poison sumac plants. The blistery rash
typically clears on its own
within two to four weeks, but in
the meantime, try an oatmeal
bath, cool compresses, calamine lotion or an over-thecounter anti-itch cream. In
more severe cases, your doctor
may prescribe an oral corticosteroid or antibiotic. 6
