This is a heads-up for a possible tasty Tivo moment. Notorious offensive riffer-comedian Sarah Silverman will appear on Larry King Live on Tuesday night. We’re calling it “Silverman vs. Suspenders”. She was originally scheduled for tonight but from a TV promo I just saw she has been bumped to Tuesday (perhaps to give The King of Divorce more prep time). I would put Silverman on a top-ten list of people you don’t want on your show when you’re caught up in a nasty public romance scandal ( Chris Rock would be one too, ask Letterman). Then again when it comes to TV and women it’s hard to argue with Larry’s track record.
Silverman will be pushing her new book “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption and Pee.”

Sarah is also putting the word out on her Twitter page:
Silverman’s act is getting a little tired, her show on Comedy Central is almost certainly going to end after three seasons, but do not be fooled she still is fearless and I just know she is lining up her best arsenal of Larry King jokes to deliver Tuesday. Larry King jokes are too easy right? Larry King computer graphics jokes however:
It should be worth watching, unless you’re Shannon Engemann.
