Wonder if Carson Daly's kids tune in to Today?

The three-day Expo provides the opportunity for Disney fans to be a part of the memorable and prestigious event. Here's what Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger had to say about the Disney Legends in a statement. »

Welcome to Today, Regis Philbin! The 83-year-old television personality is joining the hit morning show's fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb as a contributor, NBC announced today. "Regis brings his legendary charm and humor each time he visits Today," said Tammy Filler, co-executive producer. "His energy is infectious, and when Regis is around, you never know what will happen." The talk show duo also announced the news on the show this morning with a silly segment in which Philbin played a bartender before lifting the veil on his new daytime gig.

Philbin, the veteran talk-show host, has been named a contributor to the fourth hour of “Today,” a looser affair than the program’s better-watched first two hours that is hosted by Gifford and Hoda Kotb.
The announcement seems to formalize an arrangement that has been in place for some time. Philbin, who co-hosted “Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee” with Gifford for 15 years, has popped up on the fourth hour of “Today” several times in recent months, most notably in a musical involving all the anchors of the NBC morning franchise that was written by Gifford.
Philbin served as host of “Live!” for nearly three decades, and received 24 Daytime Emmy nominations, with six wins and a Lifetime Achievement Award. Among other career highlights, Philbin has written two memoirs, broke the Guinness World Record for Most Hours on Camera, and »

Regis Philbin is joining NBC’s “Today” show as a fourth hour contributor, joining resident wine-guzzlers Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Philbin will participate once per month, according to the on-air Thursday show announcement. “Regis brings his legendary charm and humor each time he visits ‘Today,'” said Tammy Filler, co-executive producer of “Today.” “His energy is infectious, and when Regis is around, you never know what will happen.” Also Read: Brian Williams Breaks Silence in Matt Lauer Interview Philbin and Gifford hosted “Live!

It’s been 20 years since Kate Winslet made her breakthrough performance opposite Alan Rickman in “Sense and Sensibility.” The two prolific actors are back together for another period drama, but forgo Jane Austen for 17th century France in Focus World’s “A Little Chaos.”
“It was absolutely wonderful to reunite with him after such a long time,” Winslet, 39, told Variety at the film’s New York premiere on Wednesday at the Museum of Modern Art hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company. “I’ve grown quite a lot as a person and hopefully as an actor since [we were last together on screen].
In the film, Rickman, who directed and co-wrote the movie’s screenplay, plays King Louis Xiv and Winslet stars as a gardener chosen to build one of the main gardens at the King’s new palace at Versailles.
“To be able to bring a level of collaboration into this experience was quite different. I »

It's absolutely absurd to thank David Letterman for all he's done in a tweet. But that's the world we live in now. #ThanksDave

In David Letterman’s penultimate episode of Late Show last night, it was only fitting that Bill Murray would be the final guest of a “normal” show (tonight’s series finale is going to be more of a retrospective and send-off). Murray was Dave’s first guest on both his NBC Late Night gig, and Late Show, and he showed up in his typically memorable fashion to say farewell to Letterman’s late-night career. After an appearance by another longtime Letterman guest and frequent butt of good-natured humor, Regis Philbin, and before a performance of “The Night We Called It a Day” by Bob Dylan later in the show, … Continue reading →

For the final scheduled musical guest in David Letterman's Late Show history, the retiring host welcomed Bob Dylan, who he considers "the greatest songwriter of modern times." Dylan, making a rare late-night television appearance, performed the oft-covered "The Night We Called It a Day," a single off his Sinatra-inspired 2015 LP Shadows in the Night. Dylan last visited Letterman in November 1993, just months after the Late Show launched.

Eddie Vedder teamed up with Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra for a rousing, fitting performance of Pearl Jam's "Better Man" on The Late Show Monday night as David Letterman began his final three-night stand as host.
As Letterman noted, Vedder has taken the Ed Sullivan Theater stage numerous times since Pearl Jam first appeared on The Late Show in 1996, even once trying his hand at comedy ("I think that will probably be the highlight of the man's career," Letterman cracked). Vedder's riveting performance on Monday, however, undoubtedly earned »
Prior to moving out of the loft and relocating to New York, New Girl‘s Coach pays a lot of lip service to ditching the past and moving forward with life. Isn’t it funny, then, that the Season 4 finale — in which he makes his exit — is all about the rekindling of two old romances?
Let’s start with the most obvious reunion: Schmidt and Cece. Inspired by Coach’s pre-move winnowing of belongings, Schmidt dumps his box of Cece memorabilia into a parking-lot donation receptacle… then immediately tries to get it back. When an employee from the charity (30 Rock‘s Jack McBrayer, »
I write about "New Girl" only under two circumstances: When Sepinwall is hospitalized or when Sepinwall is on vacation. And even then, I still only write about "New Girl" under two circumstances: When it's a premiere or a finale and therefore there are plot points that maybe could stand some discussion. Fortunately, Sepinwall is on vacation and, at least so far as I know -- Knock wood! -- his health is fine. However, Tuesday (May 5) night marked the fourth season finale for "New Girl," so I guess "Clean Break" is as good a time as any to write a few words about the state of "New Girl." "Clean Break." As it says above, "Clean Break" is the title of the finale. It's not "Clean, Shaven," as I initially typed, because "Clean, Shaven" is an intense film from recently prolific cable TV helmer Lodge Kerrigan, featuring a marvelous performance by Peter Greene. »

James Best, who played the memorable Sherrif Roscoe P. Coltrane on the hit TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, passed away yesterday at the age of 88 from complications of pneumonia. The actor played Roscoe P. Coltrane, the longtime rival to the Duke brothers, on all seven seasons of The Dukes of Hazzard, which ran from 1979 to 1985.
The actor was raised in Indiana and ended up moving to New York after serving in World War II. He found work as a fashion model which lead to him being discoverd by a casting agent. He became a contract player for Universal Pictures. He appeared in a number of films throughout the 1950s such as Winchester '73 alongside James Stewart and The Cimarron Kid with Audie Murphy. He ended up working in both TV and film throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, appearing in notable episodes of The Twilight Zone, Wagon Train and Have Gun - Will Travel, »
To mark the late Frank Sinatra’s centennial birthday this year, HBO presents a detailed look at the music legend’s prolific life in “Sinatra: All or Nothing at All,” a two-part, four-hour documentary featuring never-before-seen footage, home movies and candid details of Sinatra’s private life provided by the man himself. Friends, family and admirers of Ol’ Blue Eyes stepped out Tuesday night at the Time Warner Center in New York for the buzzy film’s premiere.
“My dad would have been very proud of this film,” Tina Sinatra, Sinatra’s 66-year-old youngest child, told Variety prior to the screening. “It’s the real and honest look at his life. It shows him as a real person. He never made excuses. He didn’t do things perfectly well every time. He was his own man, and he was, most of the time, always generous. He did things his way. »

“Monopoly Millionaires’ Club,” the extremely flashy Las Vegas-set continuation of the multistate lottery game that ran last year, premieres this weekend. And while there are some hurdles that might keep it from passing “go” right away — the show is syndicated instead of dedicated to one network because some states don’t have a lottery system, and the lottery ticket game that prospective contestants entered to earn a place on the show was deemed too complicated and was suspended at the end of last year and brought back as an instant-win scratcher ticket game this month — there is one person who is ready to bet big on the project: “Mike and Molly” star Billy Gardell, who serves as host of the show.
“I wanted the biggest game show on television, like Jackie Gleason big,” said Gardell, who said his agents had been on the hunt for an outlet like this for him and found this project, »
