Today’s Holiday Tune: Michael Buble sings “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and more holiday faves!

Sorry Frank Sinatra. Nice knowing you Harry Connick Jr. You had a good run Tony Bennett.

My main man when it comes to holiday CDs is Michael Buble.

I think he’s right up there with Bing Crosby and those other guys when it comes holiday music. Last Christmas Eve, I played his CD and my mom said: “Who is that? He’s wonderful!”

Indeed he is.

Enjoy some of his holiday tunes.

WATCH: Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks drop by ‘CBS This Morning’ to talk up their new film ‘The Post’

Watched a screener of The Post recently and loved every minute of it. Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are on screen together for the first time. In the movie, Streep plays Katharine Graham, the publisher of the Washington Post, and Hanks portrays legendary editor Ben Bradlee. The plot centers on the paper’s famous and difficult decision to publish top secret government information from the Pentagon Papers in 1971. Streep and Hanks join CBS This Morning to discuss how the film resonates today in some scary ways.

No, Anderson Cooper did not call Trump a ‘pathetic loser’ on Twitter – says his account was hacked

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper woke up this morning to find that he had called Donald Trump a ‘pathetic loser’ on Twitter. Only he hadn’t. Cooper explains: ‘Someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.’ Trump on Wednesday morning tweeted that GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore worked hard in the Alabama special election, but that the “deck was stacked against him.”

“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!” Trump tweeted.

Cooper’s Twitter account said in response: “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”


Wednesday Morning Man: Norbert Gombos!

I’m usually so focused on the top stars in men’s tennis that I don’t notice the guys ranked lower down unless they are across the net from Federer, Nadal or Djokovic. Still, how could I have not noticed world number 113 Norbert Gombos? He’s 6 feet, 5 inches and he’s gorgeous! The 27 year old Slovak player plays on the ATP Challenger Tour where he has won five titles and reached plenty of other finals. Norbert is a member of the Slovakia Davis Cup team and achieved a career-high ATP singles ranking of World No. 80 in October.

Tired of people always seeming perfect in their workout videos? Me too! So – here I am being a dope. I was so pumped that my grip was strong (recovering from bad wrist injury) that I boosted #deadlift workout weight. BUT – I was so focused on grip I let form slip, and hips rise, wound up looking like a fool. FORGET “HOW MUCH” AND WORRY ABOUT “HOW WELL” I say this all the time but I didn’t do it. So, I did some extra work with coach Joe at @evfperformance focusing on what matters: FORM. DOING IT RIGHT. Coach @nmlee08 floating behind me gives a quick look of disgust mid-set. Don’t be me, friends, don’t be me :) #hardwork #worksmart #Grind

Days of Our Lives: Will Horton tries to understand his mother Sami while husband Sonny holds out hope

It’s happened.

I am completely hooked on Days of Our Lives again. All it took was un-murdering Will Horton and bringing Chandler Massey back in the role.

That’s all.

Will having no memory is brilliant because there’s so much to be played out and in these two most recent episodes, he has some deeply moving scenes with his uncle Eric and mother Sami.

Meanwhile, you have a still shell-shocked Sonny being read the riot act by his uncle Vic who thinks his nephew has made a big mistake by breaking up with Paul because of Will.

Uncle Vic tells it like it is!

Today’s Holiday Tune: Let’s enjoy Eartha Kitt ‘s sexy renditions of ‘Santa Baby’ over the years can never forget the dazzling Eartha Kitt and her signature song.

The sexiest Catwoman of them all performed Santa Baby throughout her long career and before one of her performances she once cracked: “I used to have a lot of fun with this song … then MADONNA sang it!”

It’s true, there has been many versions of this song over the years – good ones too – but let’s face it, she sings it better than anyone ever will.

She absolutely owns it!

Eartha may be most famous for playing Catwoman on the Batman TV series but she had a singing and acting career than spanned 60 years on Broadway, television, films and nightclubs.

She died in 2008 but her work lives on – especially this, her sexy signature song.
