This weekend: ‘60 Minutes,’ ‘Daniel Tosh: Happy Thoughts,’ NAACP Image Awards — all have Central Florida connections
Central Florida is going to make a splash on national television this weekend. Trust me.
1. People will be talking about the Scott Pelley report that leads off “60 Minutes.” Pelley wanted to do a story about how children are suffering through the Great Recession.

The decision paid off because “60 Minutes” has found some thoughtful children to tell this heartbreaking story. (I’ll have an interview with Pelley over the weekend.)

He made his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2001 and a year later was hosting his first standup special, Comedy Central Presents Daniel Tosh.
