The Standouts Of Gaddafi Death Coverage: Jon Stewart, Hillary Clinton & Matthew Perry

Nellie Andreeva

In the wall-to-wall coverage of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi yesterday, which was dominated by gruesome images of his lifeless body that I felt the networks went overboard with, two moments stood out. The oddest was when Regis Philbin read live the news of Gaddafi’s death on Live With Regis And Kelly to cheers and applause from the audience so big that even the veteran host was taken aback. The most intriguing was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s reaction to reading the news on her BlackBerry, accidentally caught on tape: you rarely see state officials in such unguarded moments. As for TV personas who stood out, Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart did his thing with an amusing look at Gaddafi with all his weirdness as well as the news coverage of his death. And then there was the unlikely hero of that news coverage yesterday, former Friends star Matthew Perry, thanks to a scene from his first series, the long-forgotten 1987 sitcom Second Chance, which has a scene indicating that Gaddafi dies on July 29, 2011. Here is that scene as well as The Daily Show‘s segment on Gaddafi. Read More »

Talk Show Roundup: Regis Philbin’s Last Day On ‘Live’ Is Nov. 18; First Gigs For Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper

Regis Philbin said today during the season premiere of his syndicated morning talk show Live With Regis and Kelly that his last day on the Disney-ABC program will be Nov. 18. The 80-year-old had announced back in January that his was retiring from Live after 28 years. As for his replacement, producer Michael Gelman said during the show this morning that there is no short list of candidates, and a guest-host rotation will continue until a permanent host is found.

– ABC today revealed that Katie Couric’s first news assignment at her new home will air tonight on Nightline, when the former CBS News anchor interviews Sarah Jessica Parker ahead of the actress’ upcoming feature I Don’t Know How She Does It. Sure, these are the types of guests Couric will nab for her upcoming ABC talk show, but it’s a curious debut for her owing to her much-publicized negotiations with potential suitors that centered on her insisting she stay close to hard news, like covering the 2012 presidential elections.
