How much football is too much for TV? That's the question CBS and the NFL may face Sept. 11, when the curtain rises on their ambitious experiment to build a new broadcast television home for pro football on Thursdays. NBC will air the first game of the season Thursday, Sept. 4, but CBS won the rights to broadcast eight more Thursday games starting with the Sept. 11 matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens. Those games will air simultaneously on CBS and the NFL Network cable channel; CBS's top-line talent will also handle the NFL Network games that don't air on the broadcaster — evidence of how badly CBS President and CEO Les Moonves wanted this deal. For the TV industry, it's a no-brainer.
CBS' Thursday comedy lineup, in the absence of football competition for the first time this season and continuing to face softer programming than usual on ABC and Fox, posted their best scores in m...
The Centers for Disease Control says nearly half of all Americans suffer from chronic obesity, which is part of what inspired Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church to join forces with Dr. Daniel Amen and Dr. Mark Hyman to create "The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life." It's a lifestyle program developed in 2011. In the first year, more than 15,000 church members lost more than 250,000 pounds. Warren told the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts that he was actually baptizing approximately 800 church members and had a thought at around the 500th person that “wasn’t very spiritual.” He thought to himself that “we are all fat,” and that he himself was overweight too.
Days after it apologized for its faulty reporting on the Benghazi attacks, the criticism of "60 Minutes" has not relented -- and some of it has focused on a glaring, and still unanswered, part of the controversy: what role corporate synergy played in the process that led to the show's disastrous retraction on Sunday.
How did TV's most storied newsmagazine make such a huge mistake? And why won't they explain exactly what happened? Those are the questions left unanswered days after 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan and CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager retracted an Oct. 27 story about the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, that featured a suspect source: government contractor Dylan Davies.
"60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan apologized Sunday night for her discredited Oct. 27 report featuring an “eyewitness” account of the Benghazi terrorist attack that proved to be false.
CBS News’s chairman expressed disappointment and contrition Friday for a mistaken “60 Minutes” report about the Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attacks, but he suggested the program and his network intended to move past the flawed story.
"60 Minutes" has learned of new information that undercuts its Oct. 27 account of an ex-security officer who called himself Morgan Jones. His real name is Dylan Davies, and he recounted to Lara Logan, in great detail, what he claimed were his actions on the night of the attack on the Benghazi compound.
Publication has been halted for a disputed book about the attack last year on a U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. Threshold Editions announced Friday that it's suspending Dylan Davies' "The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Soldier Who Was There" after serious doubts emerged about whether Davies had witnessed the 2012 raid.
CBS' "60 Minutes" announced Thursday night that it's reviewing a controversial Oct. 27 report on the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, to determine if its eyewitness, security officer Dylan Davies, "misled" the network. "60 Minutes" said it had "learned of new information that undercuts" the harrowing account given on air.
“Back is beautiful” is how Arsenio Hall framed his return to late- night television after a 19-year hiatus. But actually, it wasn’t even pretty. Monday’s premiere of the syndicated talk show “The Arsenio Hall Show” felt less like a reawakening than like a wake. It was an amnesiac’s trip though memory lane, a memorabilia clearance sale, a valedictory fresh start. Mr. Hall recruited grizzled veterans from his past: Paula Abdul, Chris Tucker and Snoop Dogg. But he gave viewers little hint of what he plans to do differently with a new show, a new generation of viewers and a radically changed late-night landscape.
Dan Rather slammed corporate media on Friday night, alleging that news coverage is guided by political interests and profits.
