WOIO Reporter In Cosmo Hottest Bachelor Search


Chris Van Vliet, entertainment reporter at Raycom’s CBS affiliate WOIO Cleveland, Ohio (DMA 18), has been chosen by Cosmopolitan magazine to represent Ohio in its annual bachelor search. Cosmo’s November issue (on newsstands Tuesday, Oct. 11) showcases the hottest bachelors from across the country.

Cosmo editors searched for months on behalf of millions of “fun and fearless females,” to find America’s “hottest, most eligible bachelors.” After considering thousands of candidates all across the state, the editors named Van Vliet Ohio’s Bachelor of the Year.

“Cosmo? I’m shocked, surprised and totally humbled!” the 28-year-old face of The Buzz said.

What’s next for Chris? He’ll compete against other eligible bachelors from each of the remaining states and Washington, D.C. Readers can go online at to vote for Chris from now until Oct. 16. The 10 bachelors with the most votes will be named semifinalists, and a panel of Cosmo editors will crown one lucky man to be Bachelor of the Year and receive $10,000.

If Chris wins the grand prize, he says he plans to donate the money to charity. “I think it’s a great way to show Cleveland my admiration and support,” Chris says. “Sure, we could all use the money — but the Boys & Girls Club of Cleveland really deserve it.”

    In 1977, DC Comics unveiled a superhero named Black Lightning, hoping to fill an obvious void with a token character who, inspired somewhat by the characters in blaxploitation cinema, exhibited a lot of street sense on the blighted side of Metropolis. Black Lightning, a wholehearted and energetic live-action revival of the character on CW. It is a fine example of what television might look like once we move past the more ceremonial aspects of diversity. This is a black show on a network filled with white superheroes, and it displays no insecurity or self-consciousness about that.

    In Amazon's Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the creator of Gilmore Girls introduces another brainy, mouthy heroine, this time in the male-dominated comedy world of the 1950s.

    A reassuring example of older means getting better, Will & Grace struts back to NBC bolder, brassier and bawdier. Some like it tart, and this frisky frolic delivers. After eight seasons, the beloved sitcom felt faded at its fade-out in 2006. Eleven years later, the revival packs a joyous kick in the first three episodes. Here is an absolutely fabulous return with four irrepressible stars who are at their very best. Will & Grace is no gay dinosaur.

    Wonderstruck, overstuffed, corny and stirring, Star Trek: Discovery stands tall alongside the best-regarded incarnations of the Trek franchise even as it raids elements from all of them (including the recent J.J. Abrams film series, which Paramount says is set in an alternate timeline that has nothing to do with this one). Though handsomely produced, the show’s imagination seems to have been slightly reined in by commercial mandates — namely, reinvigorating Trek as a TV property and serving as a marquee title that would lure customers to CBS All Access, the network’s subscription-only service.
