Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

1 TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS TO WORK DAY So they can learn that men don’t do any more work at the office than they do around the house.
2 LETTERMAN IN LONDON Diana, Uma. Uma, Diana.
3 DESTINY TURNS ON THE RADIO Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino stars. What he really wants to do is act.
4 LISTEN TO MY HEART By Kathie Lee Gifford. This is what happens when we let Care-Bears mate.

14 HBO’S MIKE TYSON STORY What we used to call ”a likely.”
15 PAVAROTTI PERFUME The great tenor has introduced a scent of his own. Eau No!
