What's with all the Cloris Leachman?

I recently came across one of those year-end lists asking the question "who are the top ten most over-exposed celebrities". And Oprah was big on the list, Tyra Banks...but yesterday I realized that Cloris Leachman, the 80-some-years-old Oscar-winning actress (The Last Picture Show) was my pick. There is a remarkable amount of Cloris Leachman on TV these days. First, she spent the whole year competing in one of those Dancing With The Stars type shows, which may have actually been Dancing With The Stars, I can't remember. Then she appeared on all the talk shows that interview people who appear on that reality show, whichever one it was. Then I see her in all kinds of other bizarre things, like the Comedy Central Roast Of Bob Saget, which I recently had to review. http://blog.rogersradiointernet.com/cynicalcinema/2008/12/30/comedy-centrals-roast-of-bob-saget-on-dvd-december-30th-410/

Here is Cloris Leachman roasting Bob Saget: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uu17bA9RqBg She was actually one of the funnier performers at this dismal event.

And now, I see her as the Grand Marshal at the Rose Bowl parade, and then doing the official coin toss. Cloris Leachman, you are the most over-exposed celebrity on television this year. Here is another clip of her over-exposure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdVdnmc22k8
