Catholic Celebrities Breaking News And Laughs on Catholic Talk Show
CatholicTV airs “This Is The Day” twice each week. The show features interviews of Catholic celebrities, Catholic news, and discussion of current Catholic issues.
Each episode of “This Is The Day” includes interviews of Catholic guests. Guests have included celebrities such as Boston Red Sox Legend Johnny Pesky, musician and founder of Little Lamb Music Ray Herrmann (played with Chicago, Santana, Whitney Houston etc), Tarek Saab (from the Apprentice) and others. Bishops, clergy and missionaries from all over the country around the globe are also regular guests on the show.
CHALLENGES AND HILARIOUS ANTICS
The talk show presents unique challenges to the hosts of the show Jay Fadden, Fr. Robert Reed, and Kevin Nelson. For example, Conan O’Brien doesn’t have to hear co-workers’ confessions like host Fr. Robert Reed does. David Letterman doesn’t have to run the entire TV station like Jay Fadden does. Often times Jay, Fr. Reed, and Kevin are in the middle of meetings and getting off of phone calls minutes before they hear “lights, camera, action!”. In that short time, they may have to speed-read about their guests and decide on what to discuss just seconds before the show airs live at 10:30AM Eastern.
On one hilarious December morning, Fr. Reed improvised by singing “Oh Christmas Tree” after the teleprompter malfunctioned.
