Discovery Life, one of the more obscure networks in the far-flung Discovery empire, starting October 22.
Host Lisa Arch gave an interview to TV Grapevine about the delivery-room quizzer. First, she told us about herself: "I'm a wife and mom. I'm on the PTA. I'm an actress and a host who started out in sketch comedy. I'm a generally nice person." Wikipedia (usual caveats) fills in a few more details. Her husband's name is Russell and they have one kid, a son named Garrett.
These kinds of personal details always make me a little uncomfortable. I suddenly realize that the performers I talk about so cavalierly on this blog are genuine breathing human beings with lives and careers. If I thought about this too much, I'd probably start to pull my punches, though I doubt that any of the performers ever read the stuff I post here.
Well, okay, at least a few of them do. I've gotten e-mails now and then. That's why I've always turned down opportunities to interview cast or crew members on a game show. I don't want to get close at all - even on a conference call interview - with people in the business.
