Guests on Chris Aable's TV Shows

By Terry Madison

    At the urging of his manager, Chris has agreed to a one-year contract to host a new show on over a dozen local public TV Stations in many cities throughout California, including Malibu, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Pasadena, Glendale and Ventura.  The show will be called "Hollywood Priorities".  He recognizes that entertainment has a high priority in most people's lives and that no other medium matches entertainment in terms of conveying messages regarding positive human advancement.  A few shows will focus on a "Then and Now" retrospective, featuring many of the celebrities below, each interviewed in the 1990s.  These shows will feature clips and segments of each celebrity's interviews from about ten years ago with current interviews about where they've been, where they are now, and where they are going.  

    Next month we will be in the process of converting Chris Aable's thirty minute TV Shows of the 1990s from 3/4" TV Studio Tapes to DVD's and will post trailers on this site in December.  One and a half hour compilations of three shows will be available in 2007 on DVD at only $19 each. 

1998 "Hollywood Today" TV show host, Chris Aable, with "The Lovely Carol" at Gower Studios in
Hollywood.  Shortly after appearing on the show, The Lovely Carol went on to become a regular guest host on
the E! Channel and "Talk Soup".  She went on to pursue other interests after "Talk Soup" left the air in 2002.
The audience laughed almost all the way through the interview, especially after she made fun of her hair and
Chris remarked that her hair was "Tornado Proof".  We would like to have her back on the show, but her
career spanned a time before the advent of the internet.  Please submit contact information if you have any and it
would be much appreciated.
 

Below is a work in progress and is just a partial list of a few of the many celebrities who have appeared on Chris Aable's TV Shows, including "Hollywood Today", "Los Angeles Today" and the "B-Minus Movie Awards", a parody of himself in which Chris Aable makes fun of his own "so-called entertainment career", long before Kathy Griffin brilliantly came up with her show "On the D list".   All of these aired in the in the Los Angeles area and some aired also on the Manhattan Neighborhood Cable Network in the 1990s, reaching a market share of about ten million viewers in the early 1990s.

All of these interviews are hysterical and historical, offering a unique perspective on these actors in their own words.  Interviews that most people have never seen.   I've watched them with a studio 3/4" player and have found them all to be very funny, educational and very entertaining.   Full length DVD's will be available in early December for only $19.50 per copy, just in time for the gift-giving season. 

Write me at Terry@self-evolution.org if you wish reserve any copies.  As of June 8th, 2006, several hundred copies have been reserved, even though we have only let the future releases be known by word of mouth.  We have done no advertising of these yet due to larger projects and time constraints.  

Chris Aable owns two corporations that between them own six other companies and about two hundred domain names.  In addition to working as Mr. Aable's General Manager, I am a research assistant and fact-finder for his upcoming book "What is Self-Evolution?"  I have written the biography of Chris Aable for this book and serve as the editor.
