  • Teri Hatcher And The "Lip Plumper" Lawsuit Wednesday, 6 Feb 2008 | 10:25 AM ET

    Like some bizarre plot twist from Wisteria Lane, Teri Hatcher is being sued for agreeing to represent one lip-plumping product, then pumping another plumper (Are her lips even plump? Sorry, it’s not something I’ve noticed).

  • My Nike Show--Swoosh: Inside Nike Tuesday, 5 Feb 2008 | 1:38 PM ET

    Those people who watch CNBC every day might have noticed that I spent most of the month of December off the air. The reason for this? I was taking trips like this: New York-Frankfurt-Singapore-Vietnam-Hong Kong-Los Angeles-Portland-New York. It was all for an hour documentary I am doing on Nike.

  • Super Bowl XLII--The Financial Winners Monday, 4 Feb 2008 | 3:00 PM ET

    Eli Manning: He's going to get a shot at becoming a big-time endorser. Can he do it? What companies will try to sign him? He's now put himself in the position to get deals. The 1972 Dolphins: The Reebok ad wasn't their last hurrah after all. The revenue stream that comes every year to the likes of Bob Griese, Larry Czonka and Mercury Morris is still alive and well.

  • Super Bowl Party Score: Playboy Beats Maxim Monday, 4 Feb 2008 | 10:59 AM ET

    In the ultimate battle of men's magazine Super Bowl parties, Playboy beat out Maxim by perhaps the widest margin since the two began competing in 2001. That's at least my impression after looking over my scores from previous years.

  • Bill Belichick wearing the Patriots hoodie.

    With the hard-core media here in Arizona for the entire week, plenty of great questions have been asked. But there's one that hasn't been: "Will Bill Belichick Wear His Hoodie On Game Day?" Your initial reply might be, "Of course not. It's in Arizona."

  • I just landed in Arizona. I haven't done any work here yet to prepare for an all-day Super Bowl marathon on CNBC on Friday, but I decided it was appropriate to talk about botched PR during Super Bowl week. Companies get so excited to have the stage, they misunderstand that they should probably sign the contract for an ad before announcing to the media...

  • Countrywide's Press Release: What Caught My Eye Tuesday, 29 Jan 2008 | 2:00 PM ET

    You've heard about Countrywide's $422 million loss, and you've probably heard that Bank of America says the deal is still "a go." Yes, loan production is way down, credit loss provisions are way up. But even though Countrywide did not hold a conference call, its full earnings release is littered with telling details about the state of the housing market.

    Direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising is everywhere in American media because it works. Generally speaking, it drives patients to ask/tell their doctors to prescribe a particular medication.

  • Music Industry Ready To "Give Away" The Songs? Tuesday, 29 Jan 2008 | 8:58 AM ET

    Illegal downloading outpaces legal downloading alternatives by 20-to-one. Record companies may have grown their digital music revenue by 40 percent over the past year, but that's so far from enough to keep up with the death of the CD business.

  • Super "Prop Bet" That I Need Your Help On Monday, 28 Jan 2008 | 5:26 PM ET

    Last year, I caused a bit of a controversy with the attention I gave to the "prop bet" about how long it would take Billy Joel to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. took the over--1 minute and 44 seconds--after a breaking it down very seriously. Then Billy raced through it in 1 minute and 30 seconds (not counting the intro).

  • The print newspaper business has problems--declining ad revenue, transitioning to the digital future. Just look at the stock price of the New York Times over the past year--ouch! Well now a hedge fund manager--Firebrand Capital's Scott Galloway--who owns a significant stake in NYT stock is pushing to make some changes.

  • Apparel Recession? Maybe, Maybe Not Monday, 28 Jan 2008 | 11:20 AM ET

  • A $4 billion company I've never covered before, Inverness Medical Innovations, is making news this morning with a $900 million acquisition of another company I've never covered--Matria Healthcare, Inc. But that's not why I'm blogging about Inverness.

  • The story lines are unabashedly goofy. Cavemen invent the wheel to transport a beer cooler made of stone, and a car buyer enlists the help of a tribal warrior in case he needs some extra negotiating leverage at the dealership.
