During ABC's red carpet pre-show Sunday, a fan from the stands was selected to ask a star of his or her choice any question. What could have been an awkward disaster became a genuinely interesting moment (as far as red carpet moments go) when the fan asked Melissa McCarthy about her time working on "Weird Al" Yankovic's old TV show. McCarthy warmly remembered the job. "He's a lovely, lovely, funny man," she said. McCarthy's husband, Ben Falcone, offered, "I got my first acting job on that show." Something McCarthy had forgotten. It was a better question and answer than the professionals had gotten all afternoon. Don't expect to see the stunt repeated.
