We caught the first “episode” of “The Lisa Robertson Show” Friday night, and it was a pretty good effort.
Lisa has her own new set, which almost looked like a living room, and she looked great with a leopard print skirt and great black boots.
Designer Mark Zunino, a protege of longtime QVC vendor and Hollywood designer Nolan Miller, introduced his new line for QVC on the show.
Our favorite guest, however, was fellow Montclair resident and talk show host Wendy Williams, who sat on a couch by Lisa and explained the inspiration for her new QVC accessories line, which is called Adorn. Lisa was on Williams’ show earlier in the week.
Wendy was cool, and had a cute conversation with Lisa, who seems addicted to hair extensions, about wigs.
A stand in for Dr. Perricone, the nationally known skin doctor, was in the house, as well, touting his latest product, or “Fountain of Youth,” as she called it. Really? Does the FDA Know about that?
All the whole shopping networks are trying to make their segments jazzier than an infomercial, in an attempt to draw in new viewers who could become new home shopping customers.
Lisa looked natural in the role of TV show host.
The one thing that did annoy us (there’s always somethin’) was Amy Stran’s presence. She was trying to do the social media thang during the show, answer questions from Facebook and Twitter, and it ground the show to a halt.
There was one interesting bit that the show will be doing: Viewers each week be able to ask Lisa one question that she MUST answer.
Now that’s an intriguing concept.
