Sarah & No Name

We don't particularly enjoy waking up at 7 a.m., but it sure is nice to start the day with a belly laugh. The Morning Show with Sarah and No Name is a hilarious mix of camp and fluff, toilet bowl one-liners, boy-vs.-girl banter, and snappy commentary on the entertainment biz and current events. Part of their appeal lies in their candid delivery, including intimate tidbits of their personal lives, less the sap. They're more like old college dorm buddies who happen to be effortlessly funny. Daily features include "Celebrity Trash," when the likes of Enrique Iglesias' mole are ruminated upon, and "Guess the Celebrity," where callers who answer correctly can win Alice Everyday Rewards Points and little goodies like concert tickets. Sarah and No Name have played host to many guest visitors, including Andrew Firestone of The Bachelor (who delivered a most wrenching live rendition of Christina Aguilera's "Genie in a Bottle"). And, of course, the show wouldn't be complete without jabs at Hooman, The Morning Show's apathetic yet -- dare we say it? -- somehow charming movie critic. But guys, what's up with the Sleep Train ads?
