Gary Sleeps on the Job

July 23, 2007

Page 69 reported that Mel Karmazin was giving some guests a tour of the studios and caught Gary sleeping in the greenroom. Gary said that the incident caused Tim Sabean to panic and pressure Gary to apologize to Mel. Gary added that Mel’s assistant only allowed him to talk with Mel from 3:45 to 3:50, but Mel ended up being apologetic himself, telling Gary that he knew the show sometimes works late. Ralph called up to say Mel once caught him watching porn (for professional purposes of course) while giving a tour, and Gary said Jason had an awkward moment as well; he was editing pictures of Sal’s balls from “Guess What’s In My Pouch” when Mel stopped by.
