Great idea to have this once in a year.

Also wonder why the award looks like a piece of brick or tomb stone...AC's mom should redesign it.

It does look like a cheapo award.
Oh wow, all AC favs will be there.
Can't believe he actually tweeted to ordinary folk Sunday. Must be a ratings in I'm on my way back from GaGa land, be sure to watch on Monday.

Let's take bets on how many times CNN reruns this Heroes Awards special.
If you miss the first broadcast it will be rerun the entire Thanksgiving weekend and then on Christmas day. No wonder AC is looking for a syndicated program.
Could this possibly be the reason??
