learning from the best

ON MY FIRST DAY OF WORK AT ESQUIRE IN THE FALL of 1990, I was told to look through back issues of the magazine to get a sense of its history. The first story I read was by a guy named Stanley Bing. His column was about the death of his beloved cocker spaniel and as a dog lover— specifically a spaniel lover—I found myself sobbing at my brand new desk. (Not a great look.) I would soon learn that Stanley Bing was actually a pseudonym for Gil Schwartz, who was an executive at CBS Communications for over 22 years. When I started at Watch in 2010, he became my boss. He was the founder—and great supporter—of this magazine until he retired in 2018. Gil was one of the smartest and…

head over wheels

AS A YOUNG COLLEGE student, actor Stephen Hill would drive his burgundy ’91 Toyota Camry from his home in New Jersey to Hampton University in Virginia. “I ended up putting over 200,000 miles on that car,” says Hill, who plays T.C. Calvin on the CBS drama Magnum P.I. “Luckily, those cars last forever. Even now, no matter what city I’m in, I’ll see that model of my old Camry on the street.” While his stepfather helped with payments on the Camry, Hill wanted something more sporty when it came to buying his first car. “The traffic in Hawaii is sometimes unbearable, but our show shoots on the west side of the Island and we drive against the commuter traffic. The beauty of being here is, the last time I drove to…

design inspiration

WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR ART DIRECTOR RICHARD JENSEN TO decorate the pool and patio areas for Love Island, CBS’s sizzling summer matchmaking show, he followed one guiding principle: “Would cool, young, sexy people be excited to hang out here?” The answer, of course, was a resounding yes. Jensen pulled from such designers as Jonathan Adler and textile artist James Dunlop to create a Fiji-based set that was as stunning as the single Islanders themselves. To get the look at home, Jensen suggests mixing different shapes or materials to give your space a designer feel. “And don’t forget the outdoors can be used day and night, so lighting is important,” he says. “Fairy lights on a large tree or shrub and a fire pit instantly add glamour.” Here, more ideas on…

POPPY IS ONE LUCKY HAMSTER. WHILE SHELTERING in place, Young Sheldon star Iain Armitage revealed on Instagram that he was fostering his new furry pal, noting, “She makes life in quarantine much more fun!” Indeed, CBS stars have always enjoyed the companionship of their four-legged friends, whether it’s on a hike or during a muchneeded cuddle on the couch. As for the latest news events, The View’s Carrie Ann Inaba may have said it best: “Quaran-teaming with my fur babies has been a life saver,” she reported on a recent Instagram post. “Without my kids, I’d be a mess.”…

tough love

LAST NOVEMBER, A CASTING CALL FOR TOUGH AS NAILS went out to Americans across the country, looking for people who “keep the country running and define what it means to be tough.” Applicants were then asked to perform eight minutes of burpee pushups. “It wasn’t just about the number they did, but what they could take mentally,” says Emmy-winning producer and host Phil Keoghan (The Amazing Race), who was inspired by his workingclass family to create the reality competition show. “Who went to a place where they could shut out the pain and continue?” The twelve skilled workers who proved adept at both are the worthy competitors who attempt to complete exhausting tasks in places including an oil field, a construction site, and a fire academy—with one person emerging the victor at…
