Explaining Charlie Rose

So, as some of you know because of my incessant bragging, The Charlie Rose Show is based in the same building I'm working in these days, and we see Mr. Rose around the building fairly often. After one such sighting this week and a few comments about it, one of my Canadian co-workers asked who Charlie Rose is. A reasonable question, but rather hard to explain without getting into a lot of ancillary issues (PBS, Rose as example of PBS' quality and highbrow nature, PBS vs. CBC, lack of hockey on PBS unless you live in New Hampshire, cultural importance of UNH hockey in New Hampshire, etc., etc.).

"He's a talk show host. He's been on The Simpsons."

That settled it....
