Shepard Smith loves "True Blood" — and has the digressions away from his news copy to prove it. But could it lead to a Shepard Smith "True Blood" cameo? He sure hopes so, as he told "Studio B" viewers on Tuesday.
Smith has found ways to work "True Blood" into his show — he turned a roundtable about Lance Armstrong's doping charges into a discussion of the show's fictional drug "V" last year and compared the then-unnamed royal baby to Sheriff Balfour's fairy daughters, who didn't get named until the sixth episode of this season, last week.

Smith celebrated "True Blood" star Evan Rachel Wood's new baby on Tuesday by sharing his not-so-secret desire to make a cameo on the show: "I really want to be on that show. I feel like I can play a reporter in there, like, a cameo next year."
Correspondent Jonathan Hunt pointed out that if Charlie Rose can be on "Breaking Bad," then Smith can certainly roll into Bon Temps.
Smith did have a few reservations, however: "Sookie's very annoying, though," Smith said. "She's so annoying, I don't know how much time I can spend there."
