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.”

Here are the highlights from Friday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– V. Stiviano claimed she never had sex with Donald Sterling because he’s a homosexual. She said she was simply used as the billionaire’s “beard.”

The allegations come in response to a prior lawsuit filed by Sterling’s wife, Shelly Sterling, according to reports. Shelly Sterling’s original lawsuit depicted Stiviano as someone who convinced the former Clippers owner to get her a Ferrari, $240,000 in cash and a $1.8 million house on the outskirts of Beverly Hills.

Stiviano claims it was all for the price of covering up Sterling’s sexual orientation.

“The gift that keeps on giving, isn’t it?” Fauria said.

Said Benz: “You thought for a while that Donald Sterling would just be allowed to fade off into anonymity, literally crawl under a rock and die. But stuff like this is not going to let it happen.

“She’s suing, by the way, for $10 million. The cost of being a beard in Los Angeles is $10 million on top of whatever she’s been given already.”

Fauria asked Benz if he’s ever been a beard for a girl.

“I’ve never been a lesbian beard,” Benz said. “But the closest I think I ever came to that situation was I did go on a date with a WNBA player once. She was like a 5-foot-5 point guard.

“I’m pretty sure she was a straight WNBA player, though. It was a legitimate date. That’s not a beard situation. That’s why I said it was close.”

– Fauria asked for Benz’s opinion on a situation he encountered when he was in Washington, D.C., two weeks ago.

“Kids were going crazy, I was talking to my girlfriend out here when I’m on the road and things are going crazy,” Fauria said. “I have some down time so I’m thinking, ‘I’m going to watch a movie.’ But I feel guilty telling her that I’m going to have 2 1/2 hours of downtime to watch a movie that we both agreed we would watch together.”

Fauria asked if he should feel guilty about it.

“Yes,” Benz said. “Just putting it out there. Not so much guilty. You should feel stupid about it because she’s going to hold it against you now.”

– The Emmys will air Monday marking the first time the awards show has aired on a Monday in 38 years.

The decision reportedly was made in order to allow NBC to air Sunday Night Football.

“I think we talked about this before, I don’t think it’s possible to have a better year in television than we’ve had this year,” Minihane said.

Minihane listed the names of the nominees for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, which includes Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad,” Jon Hamm from “Mad Men” and Matthew McConaughey of “True Detective.”

“It’s hard to imagine any other year producing that kind of talent,” Buckley said.

– V. Stiviano, former assist of Donald Sterling, claimed the former Clippers owner is a homosexual who used her as his “beard” to hide his lifestyle.

“You didn’t think you could go away quietly, right?” Dennis said.

Stiviano claimed to have never slept with Sterling and said she was simply used to take out in public to hide that he “enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress.”

“Now Donald Sterling is gay?” Minihane said.

Said Dennis: “She is such a standup, classy individual isn’t she?”

“I have a feeling about those two kids, I think they’re going to work it out,” Buckley said.
