WEIRD & WILD: Quentin Tarantino on Weather Channel

Who needs Good Morning America and The Tonight Show? Celebs can always hype their stuff on The Weather Channel.

Seriously.

You can start your week watching Quentin Tarantino guesting on Wake Up With Al (Monday at 6 a.m. ET, Weather), the new early morning news/business/showbiz/chat/andohyeahweather-fest. (It's repeated at 10 a.m. ET so west coast viewers don't miss the thrills.)

The day after Tarantino talks up his new movie Inglorious Basterds, host Al Roker welcomes former Notre Dame football coach and current broadcaster Lou Holtz. (Below.) He'll likely promote his college football analyst gig on ESPN, and maybe even defend his predictionthat Notre Dame could go undefeated this season.

(And I say this as a Notre Dame fan raised in South Bend and once employed at WNDU, then the university-owned NBC affiliate where the school's coaches taped their weekly programs.)

Who'll guest next? It's probably too much to hope for Brett Favre. But maybe he's a weather geek!
