Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, Gerry Callahan and guest host Mike Mutnansky. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

—  CNN host Don Lemon had an interview with another one of the Bill Cosby sexual assault accusers, Joan Tarshis, who said she was forced to perform oral sex on Cosby. She claimed, like many others, that Cosby drugged her. Lemon said there could’ve been a way for her to not perform the act, using her teeth as a “weapon.”

Said Callahan of Lemon: “This guy’s out of his mind.”

“How does he have his job?” asked a stunned Minihane.

Said Mutnansky: “You’re a TV star, isn’t there a producer most of the time in your ear. Like some producer saying, ‘Maybe don’t go down this road about biting this guy’s crank off.’ … Give me a break.”

“Don Lemon, I think he’s almost embracing this madness, though,” said Minihane. “I don’t know how well it’s going to end.”

Replied Callahan: “That’s the last hope of someone who actually watches CNN. Anderson Cooper isn’t getting it done.”

— People magazine named its annual Sexiest Man Alive this week. The hosts had differing opinions on who should take the title, but the winner turned out to be actor Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in “The Avengers.” He beat out finalists Chris Pratt and Matthew McConaughey for the award.

Callahan said he liked how McConaughey was a final candidate.

“That’s a good choice, but he’s a little too trendy right now,” Callahan said

“Too skinny now, too. I like a man with a little beef,” replied Minihane. “I like a little beef, something to love. Isn’t McConaughey too skinny?”

Said Callahan: “He was, I don’t know that he still is. He was skinny for a part, for a role.”

When Callahan found out the winner was Hemsworth, he could not think of more than one character the actor played: “What else is he besides Thor?”

Said Minihane: “He was in that Ron Howard movie, the race car movie Ron Howard did. Remember that?”

“No,” replied Callahan.

— Charles Manson’s fiancee’s mother said she will not attend the couple’s upcoming jailhouse wedding and won’t buy the two a gift for their marriage. Afton Elaine Burton, 26, plans to marry the criminal, and her mother, Melissa Burton, does not exactly approve.

After hearing a clip of Afton Elaine talking, Minihane was a bit skeptical of her as person.

“Could you, like, hang out with her?” asked Minihane.

“No. I don’t think Manson is spending a lot of time with her either,” replied Callahan.
