In the latest upheaval at NBC‘s ratings-challenged Today show, longtime director Joe Michaels has been named senior director of the show, the network said today. No word from NBC on what his specific responsibilities will be, but a source with knowledge of the situation says he will manage large initiatives and projects on the technical/directorial side, such as Today’s coverage of the Winter Olympics next February. There’s no word on who would be replacing Michaels as director of the morning news show. Today‘s ratings have been slipping for years but the program managed to keep its No. 1 slot until Ann Curry’s ouster last June. Since then, ABC’s Good Morning America has taken over the top spot. Last month Gma continued its dominance over Today by beating the NBC show by 1.6 million viewers. That’s the largest single-day total viewership spread Gma has had »

Basketball coach Vivian Stringer is maybe most famous outside the sports world for her role as a spokeswoman during the Don Imus scandal, when the former radio host made racist and sexist remarks about Stringer’s players. But there’s much more to Stringer’s career and life — maybe too much even for Coach, the new Espn documentary about her.
The film kicks off a new series called Nine for IX: Nine documentaries airing over nine weeks for the 40th anniversary of Title IX. We spoke with the doc’s director, Bess Kargman, about working with Stringer — and Coach’s producer, »

Brad Pitt may not have had fiancée Angelina Jolie by his side for the premiere of World War Z in NYC on Monday night, but he had plenty of support from family. Angelina's dad, Jon Voight, made an appearance, as did her brother, James Haven, who brought his girlfriend, Ashley Reign.

Is Melissa on Team Jen? The rocker, who underwent five rounds of chemo for cancer in 2005, says Angelina’s decision to get a double mastectomy to prevent the possibility of breast cancer was made out of fear, not bravery.
Melissa, 52, told The Washington Blade:
“I have that [Brca-1 gene] too, and [a preventative double mastectomy is] not something I would believe in for myself. I wouldn’t call [having a preventative mastectomy] a brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer.”
Furthermore, Melissa goes on to say that she believes cancer is mind over matter. She goes on and explains:
“My belief is that cancer comes from inside you, »

It took “New Day” about 13 minutes to move from the same-old CNN to something a little different.
The new CNN ayem program has been billed by none other than the Time Warner cabler’s relatively new president, Jeff Zucker, as a program with a “generationally” different team of anchors: former ABC Newser Chris Cuomo, former Washington correspondent Kate Bolduan and Los Angeles export Michaela Pereira. The trio hit the screen today at 6 a.m. Eastern (with a promo by Cuomo and Bolduan surfacing on lead-in program “Early Start” at about 5:57) sounding a lot like traditional CNN. Their interplay didn’t truly surface until the news of the day had been transmitted.

Don’t expect CNN’s New Day to revolutionize its genre. “We are not reinventing the wheel,” the show’s executive producer Jim Murphy told USA Today this weekend. “It’s a morning news program.”
That said, the program — which premiered this morning, airing from 6-9 a.m. Et and replacing Soledad O’Brien’s Starting Point — does represent a sort of fresh start for CNN. Its hard-news, centrist focus exemplifies new CNN president Jeff Zucker’s approach to broadcasting; as Murphy explained, “You won’t see cooking and dancing and things like that.” Of course, that doesn’t mean »

Brad Pitt sat among a group of cheering fans for an interview with Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos this morning in NYC. Brad's promoting his new flick World War Z in the Big Apple ahead of its release in the Us on Friday.

Brad's fiancée, Angelina Jolie, has also shown her support for his latest film, joining him for the UK premiere earlier this month, where she made her first red carpet appearance since her double mastectomy news.

Angelina Jolie was able to get tested for the Brca gene mutation, and when she discovered she had it—and thus carried a very high risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer—she made an informed, proactive decision to preventively undergo a double mastectomy. But not everyone has access to health care and the chance to have this potentially lifesaving testing. On Monday on Good Morning America, Brad Pitt said his longtime love is back to "business as usual," adding that "her focus now is just to make sure all people have access to the [genetic] testing and know what they can do about it." "We were really surprised and moved how many other people were dealing with the same issue," »

But it's just been a beautiful thing to watch and her focus now is that all people have access to the testing and know what they can do about it. And she has »
