Some of the biggest names in morning shows stayed up relatively late to make the scene at The Hollywood Reporter's 2014 Most Powerful People in New York Media party Wednesday night. Among those who stepped out were Today co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Willie Geist -- both of whom were honored by THR's 2014 power list. But one honoree noticeably absent was Josh Elliott, who recently jumped from ABC's Good Morning America to NBC Sports.

The famously liberal Alec Baldwin was spotted chatting amiably with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, while downstairs CBS' Gayle King was seen borrowing $5 from CNN's Don Lemon to tip the coat check.

Creationist Cosmos is a short story, Awkward’s new gays to “stir up some sh*t,” TV Land orders a gay Impastor series
Ariana Grande loves her gays, and she’s about to show it by performing at Jeffery Sanker’s White Party in Palm Springs. Not quite in keeping with her Nickelodeon image, but I’m sure she’ll have a blast. I attended a lot of various “color” parties, but never managed either White Party.
For reasons that can only be explained by, well, I don’t know who, the Louisiana House voted overwhelmingly to keep their unenforceable sodomy law on the books, 27-66.
Toss those Easter Eggs in your refrigerator, because Disney has outdone us all.
TV Land has given a pilot order for Impastor, contingent on casting. The story is about a scammer who runs from his debts by hiding out in a small town pretending »

While talking to The New York Times, the 45-year-old actor said that he's worried about the 56-year-old star, who has had several public altercations with the paparazzi, has been getting fired from the TV shows lately and has had about six fights since they left the TV series.
Baldwin's talk show 'Up Late with Alec Baldwin' was suddenly canceled in November, after he allegedly used a 'gay' slur at a photographer, and had written an article for New York Magazine in February where he was quitting public life.

Morgan, who's no stranger to controversy himself, said in an interview with the New York Times that Baldwin's recent troubles -- skirmishes with paparazzi, losing his MSNBC talk show, vowing to retreat from public life then starring in an episode of "Law and Order: Svu" -- have raised some red flags.
"He was concerned about the structure of my life, and now I'm concerned about the structure of his life," Morgan told the Times. "He's getting fired from TV shows. He had about six fights since we left '30 Rock,' you know. I'm worried about him. I mellowed out, my daughter mellowed me out, and I don't get mad at anyone."
The comedian also offered some advice to Baldwin about how he can turn things around. »

Los Angeles—I have a confession to make. Until Saturday night, I had never seen The Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night.” What? I know! I felt like this was a major black hole in my cultural education, especially as someone who makes her living writing about music. Like most folks, I was very familiar with the movie's glorious first scene of the lads being chased through the streets by fervent female fans as “A Hard Day’s Night” plays (opened by that instantly recognizable, iconic guitar chord), but I had never seen the entire 1964 film until this past weekend. As part of the TCM Classic Film Festival, Alec Baldwin and music producer Don Was introduced the film that some considered the greatest rock and roll movie ever made. Upon its release, the Village Voice called “A Hard Day’s Night” “the Citizen Kane of jukebox musicals.” There’s a »

"He's getting fired from TV shows. He had about six fights since we left 30 Rock, you know," Morgan tells The New York Times about Baldwin. "I'm worried about him."

On 30 Rock, Tracy Morgan played the celebrity who always found himself in trouble and Alec Baldwin, the sensible person worried about him. Times have changed. Morgan tells the New York Times that he's "worried about him." Where Morgan says he's "mellowed out" and "[doesn't] get mad at anyone" since the birth of his daughter, Baldwin is "getting fired from TV shows" and has "had about six fights since [they] left 30 Rock.” "He was concerned about the structure of my life, and now I’m concerned about the structure of his life," Morgan explains. His advice: "Chill out, raise your family, and enjoy your wife and your daughter. The paparazzi do what they do, man. They have a job, too." He adds, "Stop eating people's old French fries. Have some self-respect! Don't you know you can fly?" »

The fifth annual fest kicked off with the world premiere of the restoration of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” at the Tcl Chinese Theatre.
Prior to the screening, TCM host Robert Osborne invited Jones, who made her film debut in “Oklahoma!” at age 18, onstage for a Q&A.
Jones said she had not planned to go into show business at all when was asked to participate in an open audition for the lead.
“I was in New York and I was on my way to college to become a veterinarian,” Jones explained. “I went and auditioned for the casting director, and he in turn called Mr. Rodgers in to hear me personally and he called Oscar Hammerstein to hear me personally, »

Larry Kramer’s fiery 1985 play The Normal Heart, which was revived on Broadway in 2011, is on its way to be one of HBO’s most prestigious projects in 2014. Based on the efforts of activist Ned Weeks in the early 1980s to create an HIV advocacy group, The Normal Heart also focused on the members of the angered gay community in New York during those years, as the AIDS crisis was about to become part of the national conversation.
A short trailer for the HBO film, which airs on May 25th, is now online and only shows a few glimpses at the all-star cast, which includes Mark Ruffalo as Ned Weeks and Taylor Kitsch as Felix Turner, a journalist who falls in love with Weeks. Matt Bomer, Alfred Molina, Jim Parsons, Jonathan Groff, Alec Baldwin and Julia Roberts round out the terrific ensemble.
Unfortunately, there is not a lot of footage in this trailer, »
