When no controversy exists, Channel 31's "Good Day Sacramento" has no qualms about manufacturing it. Take that tired shtick done by the feckless Mark S. Allen, where at least once every two weeks he "storms off the set" in anger. (Let's just say he's no De Niro when it comes to acting.)
Actually, the latest spat on "GDS" seems legit. Either that, or the two combatants - anchors Chris Burrous and Taryn Winter Brill - are hecka good actors.
Here's the deal: A few days ago, the I'll-say-anthing Burrous dismissively referred to his former weekend "GDS" co-anchor Brill as "Taryn Winter Shrill." Brill - now partnering with Cody Stark on weekends, while Burrous anchors Channel 13's morning news and contributes to the weekday "GDS" - was none too pleased.
Anyway, apparently the producers thought it'd be great TV to have the two hash out their differences on the air. (Hey, isn't that what the H.R. department is for?)
Brill: "Chris, you have a problem with my voice? I have a problem with the area on you between your chin and the top of your head."
Brill: "Chris, you're messing with the wrong East Coaster. I'm game whenever you're ready."
P.S.: Later in the show, there's a "Question of the Day" segment. The question was: "Who would you like to compete against in a foot race?"
Burrous' answer: "I want to race Lois Hart. And I want to be behind her. I think she's hot."
That man really will say anything on on the air - at least until the FCC intervenes.
