For Those Who Stray: "A new report says that men in their 60s are more likely to have affairs than men in their 20s. . . . I can just hear Frank Gifford now: 'No, honey, it's OK to leave for the week. . . . I'll be fine. . . . I'm just taking part in a study about the elderly.' " (R.J. Johnson)

Doctor, Doctor: "NBC's powerful Thursday night lineup returned. The season premiere of 'Friends' aired. 'ER' is back. . . . NBC is thinking of doing a spinoff about a group of doctors in a farming town. They're calling it 'E-R-E-I-O.' " (Daily Scoop)

Clinton the Cheerleader: "George W. Bush said, 'How one conducts their sex life is their own personal business and nobody else's. . . . Clinton was sitting at home going, 'Yo, Bush. You are my man. Go with the Bushman!' " (Leno)
