TV

An on-camera media expert, Allison has made over a thousand appearances on every major network, including NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, FoxNews, E!, VH1, and MTV. Since 2009, she’s been an on-air correspondent for NBC’s New York NonStop, covering twelve seasons of designers, celebrities, and behind-the-scenes at New York Fashion Week. From 2007 – 2008, Allison was Editor-at-Large for STAR magazine, hired to be the tv “face” for their brand.

Along the way, Allison has provided commentary for dozens of shows, including The Today Show, CBS’ Early Show, Chelsea Lately, CNN’s Reliable Sources, The Wendy Williams Show, The Ricki Lake Show, Access Hollywood, Showbiz Tonight, Fox & Friends, CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, ABC’s Windy City Live, Glenn Beck, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, Hannity & Colmes, G4’s Attack of the Show, MTV’s It’s On with Alexa Chung and the weekly Relationship 101 segment on Fox’s Morning Show with Mike & Juliet.

Allison conceptualized, executive produced and co-hosted over 100 episodes of the short-form chat show, TMI Weekly, dubbed “The View of the Facebook generation,” (she may or may not have dubbed it that herself) from Next New Networks during 2008-2009. The show aired daily on NBC’s NY NonStop cable channel as well as iTunes & Hulu – making over a quarter million dollars in ad revenue, setting records for web video at the time. The only problem? No one really watched it. Oh well.


This Morning, Fox News Fox & Friends, 6 freaking 20 am

Discussing Rosie & Elisabeth’s tiff on the View yesterday morning.

Oops – you missed it!  Probably "sleeping" or some shit like that.  Nice life, lazy.  Screenshots and a reenactment below, for your benefit -

Anchor: Who do you think won, Jill?
Jill: Elisabeth, because [fill in cogent and nicely worded answer here].
Anchor: Who do you think won, Julia?
Julia: Uh … Rosie.  And Elisabeth.  Also, Rosie.  [fill in unintelligible, un-follow-able other stuff here].

What I meant to say (and what I said to myself in the car going home) was "Rosie [read more...]

Today – on Fox’s Morning Show with Mike & Juliet, 9 am

I was going to write "Good Monday Morning" but then I heard Amanda Congdon’s voice in my head saying it and immediately I got a blistering headache.

In any case, will be discussing competing within RELATIONSHIPS with your sig other.  I have absolutely no idea why I capitalized relationships in the previous sentence.  And because I am Very Tired and Want to Go to Bed Desperately, I’m not going to change it.

Update: screenshot!


with Matt Titus, dating coach and founder of Matt’s Little Black Book

Tonight, 7 pm EST, g4 network’s Attack of the Show

Will be on the g4 network’s geek popular program Attack of the Show … 7 pm, chatting about next season’s Heroes extra episodes, something called "Halo," the douchebags otherwise known as Opie & Anthony getting suspended from XM, and the military banning YouTube & Myspace.

In other words, your average bar conversation in Silicon Valley.

Fox’s The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet, today (Tuesday) at 9 am

Was on Fox’s Morning Show with the jovial Mike and lovely and vivacious Juliet … talking about Relationship Bad Habits …

You can watch the show here!  I will warn you, however, that it looks like a vicious tornado armed only with hairspray and a teasing comb attacked my hair.  Sigh.

FoxNews, Your World with Neil Cavuto, 4:40 pm, chased by an hour of Maxim Radio 5:30-6:30

Will be discussing a possible Bloomberg run for the White House at 4:40 pm today on FoxNews – specifically whether the sheer size of his financial, uh, package, is patently unfair to the voters (buying their votes!) and other candidates (making them feel poor!).  I will be taking the affirmative.

Afterwards, (from 5:30-6:30 pm) I’ll be doing Covino & Rich’s Maxim radio show on Sirius to promote my brand new column in Time Out New York!

Today, FoxNews, a little Hilton love at 7:20 am, 5:30 pm

I’m not going to even show you the up-close screenshots, that’s how tired/puffy/generally hideous I looked this morning, attempting to talk on Fox & Friends (and later on The Big Story with John Gibson) about the insidious schadenfreude this entire country (and parts of the UK, I’m told) is experiencing over Paris Hilton’s imminent jailtime.

Being a friendly contrarian by nature, I took Paris’ side.  I think I’m literally the ONLY ONE (according to a TMZ poll, 96% believe Paris "got what she deserved.")  Look – of course it’s not okay for her [read more...]

Fox’s The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet

Nothing like a little sex talk in the morning!

FoxNews’ Redeye Last Week

If you’ve ever seen Redeye – and really, unless you have something like a JOB which requires you to be awake in the morning or whatever, you have no excuse not to watch every night – you know that they frequently discuss Very Important Subjects, oftentimes involving bestialty and/or squirrels (in general, not sex with them.  although I’m sure they’d be down with discussing the logistics of that).

Last week, we covered the following ground:


Rosie, and specifically why I haven’t been asked to be a guest cohost on The View (I’m not [read more...]

FoxNews 2am & 6:15am

It’s a Julia-double header on FoxNews this, er, "morning."  Catch me on Redeye at 2 am, and on Fox&Friends at 6:15 am.  Just FYI, I don’t think I’ve been up at 6:15 am – voluntarily – since 1984.  The things I do for Rupe.

On FoxNews’ Redeye, with my new, really crappy haircut

To all the ladies out there, a warning:

Although you might say, very, very clearly: "Hair Stylist, please DO NOT cut ridiculous amounts of layers so I look like Jennifer Aniston in 1995," what they may hear is "I want to look JUST LIKE Jennifer when she was really, really unattractive!  Three inch layers are AWESOME.  Please butcher my hair!!!   No, really, do it!!   And while you’re at it, MAKE SURE IT WILL TAKE YEARS TO GROW OUT!!!"

Screen shots from Redeye last Saturday April 14, below.  It’s headband-and-ponytail season for me from now [read more...]
