Zap!: Ted Turner and Roseanne Barr deserve to be zapped, or clicked off with a TV remote control device, according to TV Guide. The magazine has come out with its second annual Zap Awards, which single out bloopers of TV personalities and institutions. This year’s “Phoney Baloney Award” went to the imposter who tricked ABC’s “20/20" producers into believing he was the original Buckwheat from the “Our Gang” comedies, although the true performer died in 1980. Turner won for outlawing the use of the word foreign among his newscasters, who are fined if they don’t use international . Barr was honored for her rendition of the national anthem.
