The ALS ice bucket challenge has become a social media movement that benefits a great cause. However, that doesn't stop Tom Keane from ripping it, labeling the challenge as just a 'gimmick'.
All the stories of the day brought to you by Jerry Thornton including tonight's Emmy Awards.
Gerry heard something interesting on Mustard and Johnson over the weekend: Where's the evidence against Roger Clemens? Dino, Gerry and Jerry look at the P.E.D. proof against Clemens.

Here are the highlights from Monday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with John Dennis, Gerry Callahan and guest host Jerry Thornton. To listen to the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

For the second day in a row, an awards show is slated to air on TV Monday, as the 66th annual Emmys will be broadcasted just a day after the MTV Video Music Awards.

“€œI think they need award shows,” Thornton said. “If there’€™s one thing my life lacks, it’€™s there aren’t enough chances for these guys to congratulate themselves.”

“If we don’€™t do an awards show once a week, then the terrorists win,” Callahan remarked.

One of the biggest contenders Monday night will be HBO’€™s “Game of Thrones,”€ which has a staggering 19 nominations, including a Best Support Actor in a Drama Series nomination for Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister.

“€œIt’€™s a show where, I don’€™t know if you guys watch it, but nobody is above being killed,”€ Thornton said. “But the producers of that show are on notice that if this character gets killed off, the whole country is going to look like Ferguson, Missouri. We’€™re all just going to riot and loot and it’€™s going to be horrible.”

Another favorite on Monday night is AMC’€™s “€œBreaking Bad,” which earned seven nominations for its final season, including acting nominations for Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn.

“When is it going to stop winning awards?”€ Callahan said. “I feel like 20 years from now, ‘Breaking Bad’ is going to be nominated for an Emmy and it’€™s going to win.”

“It ended at exactly the right time,”€ Thornton said. “It was to TV what Pedro Martinez‘€™s Red Sox career was on. Not too soon, not too late. They didn’t drag it out.”

Another AMC series, “Mad Men,”€ once again will be a big presence Monday, as the advertising period drama has eight nominations.

“œAs someone once said to me, ‘€˜That show was a lot of subtle nuance.’€™ Yeah, too much subtle nuance,”€ Thornton said. “Give me dragons, give me swords, give [Breaking Bad'€™s] Hank [Schrader] getting killed.”
