Top 10 Authors I’d Like To See On T.V.

Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by the lovely folks over at The Broke And The Bookish.  People from all over create their own Top 10 list based on the topic of the week.

Today’s topic is the 10 authors I’d like to see on t.v.  It’s actually a freebie week for top 10 tuesday, and from what I can figure out, we can do whatever list we want.  But I decided to stick with the original topic.  I couldn’t think of another topic.  I kinda liked the old topic anyway, so here we go!

  1. J.K. Rowling: I think it would be cool if she had her own reality t.v. show and the cameras just followed her around.  It would have been really cool if it was when she was still writing Harry Potter and what that was like for her, but either way, I’d still watch.
  2. Suzanne Collins: I know including her on this list is really weird, given The Hunger Games is about the ultimate reality t.v. show.  But I think it would be cool to see her on something like Survivor, just to see how well she’d do.
  3. Alison Weir: I’d love to see her do a special on The History Channel, or even something on PBS.  I haven’t seen the David Starkey one, but I know he did one.  So why not Alison Weir?
  4. David McCullough: I’ve read one of his books, and am currently reading John Adams and 1776.  Like Alison Weir, I think it would be interesting if he did something on The History Channel or PBS, if he hasn’t done so already.
  5. Rick Riordan: I’d love to see him on Jeopardy or Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?  Just based off the Percy Jackson series, he seems like he would know useless, random trivia.
  6. Rachel Caine: Her Morganville Vampires series should totally be a t.v. show.  Technically, I’ve already mentioned this, and technically, it is a series I’d like to see on t.v., instead of an author.  But I would so watch this.  And quite frankly, I just felt like it.
  7. Joy The Baker: She needs her own cooking show.  Technically, she is an author, since she has written a cookbook.  And the Pioneer Woman has one, so why not Joy?
  8. Stephen King: He needs to do something relating to ghosts or the paranormal or something.  He writes some really creepy stuff, and who better to have a paranormal show than him?
  9. The guys who wrote the If…Questions For The Game Of Life books: The ones with questions like, “If you had to lose one of your five senses, which would you give up?”  I think they need to host some kind of game show.  I don’t know what kind of game show, but I think they need to host one.
  10. Marion Zimmer Bradley/Diana Paxson: I think- if Bradley were still alive- she would be a good narrator for something involving Arthurian legend or something else stemming from her Avalon series.  Paxson would be my 2nd choice, since she picked up the series after Bradley’s death.

So, that’s my list for this week.  It looks like we have quite a few history channel specials, plus a cooking show, and then some random t.v. shows.  Who are some authors you’d like to see on t.v.?
