So random! I'm surprised they didn't hire someone in the biz (like when Extra! hired Mario Lopez). Rob is hot though...curious how he'll do talking about stupid shit lol
He's a meteorologist with a degree from Cornell, and he's going to be hosting a celebrity gossip show? I won't be surprised when other CNN personalities decide to jump from the sinking ship as well.
He's a meteorologist with a degree from Cornell who is also a global warming denying freeper, so ET may actually be too high brow for him.
He's leaving that sinking ship. Good for him.
Anymore, Entertainment Tonight is all wet and seriously blows. If Rob can get Anderson Cooper to co-host, they'd achieve the trifecta.
This one certainly came out of left field.
He's probably tired of standing outside in the middle of hurricanes.
He's at a point in his career where he'd rather cover stormy sets, chilly actors, and actresses who are dripping wet after sleeping with him.
They are going to put him in nice suits and do his hair and give him a tan.
[quote]actresses who are dripping wet after sleeping with him.
I wouldn't be surprised if he does.
He's a total pussyhound. Remember the photos that were posted here a couple years ago showing him drunk and sprawled across a bed with 2 Asian chicks?
And I think he's already on his 2nd marriage.
Is he replacing Mark Steines?
Rob has a nice body (remember the shirtless photos from last summer), so I guess that's one of the requirements for the job.
Yep. According to the article OP posted he's replacing Steines. Steines, by the way, is one sexy daddy! Pushing 50 and still smoking hot.
Now I won't have to see his stupid, fugly ass on CNN.
I wonder if his attitude towards gay men will 'evolve' when he is surrounded by them at ET.
R11 This post needs to be read again, if only for the brilliance of the expression, "global warming denying freeper."
Wait! He's too pretty to be straight!!!!
I totally misread this headline; I thought it was about Rob MARIANO (aka "Boston Rob" of Survivor and Amazing Race fame.)
He'll be gone in six months, just like Thomas Roberts....
Thank god, it was the worst job I ever had ;)
Mark Steines and Bob Goen were both sportscasters. Marciano was a weatherman.
The pattern seems to be: HIre a good-looking hetero who's not from show biz.
Who said Steines was straight????
So many 'weatherman' really want to be the news anchor. In fact, the weathermen and weatherwoman all over the country (nationally and locally) have often branched out to do legit interviews on their shows even if the interview isn't exactly the hard news type. Remember that Al Roker is the Today show's weatherman, and he's now sort of a co-host--not just the weatherman on Today's 9 am hour.
Anyway, Marciano was probably tired of just doing the weather, and CNN, which is still a leading news network, was never going to make its weatherman a full-time news anchor except to maybe fill-in now and then.
So this ET gig for Marciano is the next best thing to being the news anchor...not really, but he's now sort of in charge. And he may just have wanted a change. And perhaps ET will be paying him more money than he's making at CNN. Who knows?
But Marciano is still a bit of a douchebag.
Here's a shot of his audition for the part.

Yeah, he is going to have to work on not coming off as such a tool. I was hoping strong gust of wind knocked him over during Sandy.
Im not looking forward to them grooming him to death, like they usually do with these entertainment hosts. I didnt think Rob could get more attractive until I saw him with this hair grown out during the Gulf oil spill. It was super hot.

As opposed to Anderson "My Mommy got me all my jobs" Cooper.
Does he care about the entertainment industry? No. But that's what ET wants. They want a heterosexual male, first and foremost, and one that doesn't give a hoot about the entertainment industry. They want a newsreader.
I found him annoying on CNN. His posturing to appear macho bugged me. Just report the weather. I think he will do the same at ET.
Yes, he is hot and annoying at the same time. Im so conflicted in my feelings about him!
I absolutely DETEST this shark-faced, climate change denying,ambitious corporate whore.
r42 = David Muir!
I actually don't like his looks. His face settles into a pronounced frown whenever he's not smiling, which makes him look like a hurt, stupid puppy.
[quote]David Muir, Bill Hemmer and Rob Marciano in a three way. Who'd be the bottom?
David. And I'd pay good money to watch.
Bill would be the bottom. there is no way in HELL Muir would be on the bottom and mess up his hair.
Let me know when he's debuting on Sean Cody.
Anyone been watching him on ET? He seems a little uncomfortable (I know he is new). It's good he's gorgeous.
Hey, thanks for the heads up. Checking him out now!!
He looks adorkable with those Bieber style bangs, chatting about the ladies' GG gowns with his goofy smile.
Is he short? Or is all that hair weighing him down?
Haven't watched this crap in years but caught him last night. He left CNN for this???? Hope he is making lots of money but it was embarrasing watching him interview and kiss the ass of stupid Jennifer Lopez.
