Show Page

Adam opens the second hour with Diora in studio, Adam gets her name correct and Adam compliments her work in ‘Wedding Crashers’ and talks about how comedies like that are underrated and don’t get the awards love despite people in showbiz acknowledging the greater difficulty of comedy compared to drama.

Diora is talking about her new show that Dr. Drew knows all about, he just accidentally “outed” a relationship between Mike Carano and one of Diora’s costars, Mike just refers to her as a “friend” and has never discussed it on air for various reasons, with one sentence Drew destroys that, oops.

Drew is talking about seeing Mike’s gf splattered on the main page of Hulu, Drew has seen the first few episodes and Adam has Diora adjust her mic.


Drew is breaking down the plot of the show, Adam says god bless Hulu and says they’re doing what the Japanese car manufacturers did to the failing and crappy American companies.

Diora is telling them about getting paid for film and TV work, Adam talks about the bygone era of marginal radio talents making way above their market rate.

Adam says this is the true free market and some people will get rich and some people will be making half what they made in 2005.


Adam has a killer point about Suzanne Somers and her contract demands on ‘Three’s Company’ and how time didn’t show her to be a great thespian, he says he likes her and she is successful but today someone wouldn’t even get work if they made demands like that.

Diora is telling them about a series pilot she did called ‘Cocked’ and explains how the voting system works for these online distribution models, from Amazon to Hulu.

Adam is trying to recall Jay Chandrasekhar, Gary mentions Bryan Cranston who was doing something similar, but I think Adam was thinking of ACS #1408 where they really got in depth on how this all works.

Bryan did discuss a similar thing on ACS #1636 so it could be that episode but Gary is uncertain as well, Adam is trying to convince him.

Diora says she was 17 and this guy was grooming her, he gave her a contract offer and talks about his open marriage. This same guy was discussed on Riki Lindholme’s ‘Making It’ podcast, I think Dr. Drew’s cohost on Loveline’s wife was also made the same offer.


Diora talks about filming a ‘Man Show’ bit and mentions Jimmy Kimmel, then she says “producer writer” as saying Jimmy further gives away the identity of the guy Dr. Drew greatly respects.
