NBC Nightly News Ratings Have Been Going Up Since Lester Holt Took Over For Brian Williams!

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteNewsViral: News

no title

This is surprising — but only because of how quickly the turnaround has been!

Brian Williams won't be going back to his job at NBC Nightly News anytime soon since his suspension started for lying, and many believed his absence from the job would prove to tank ratings at his show… which IS what happened at first.

But we guess those who thought that are feeling pretty wrong these days as Brian's replacement for the time being, Lester Holt, has been doing one fantastic job in his place!

Filed under: TV NewsCharlie SheenFunnyGIFs

Charlie Sheen is coming to be known for two things: making up catch phrases and ranting about current news.

While his catch phrases are generally pretty amazing (winning!) it's his rants that really captivate us.

His latest came after Brian Williams was suspended for 6 months from NBC Nightly News.

Brian has found himself in hot water lately after embellishing (for years) a story about a helicopter ride in Iraq and whether or not it ever came under fire.

Regardless of why he's on suspension, Charlie Sheen is pissed that it happened! So he wrote an open letter to Brian Williams! It read:

Many wondered what kind of punishment (if any) would be meted out to Brian, and this response from NBC is far from a slap on the wrist.

Rosie O'Donnell had some pretty cutting remarks for Brian Williams over the weekend.

The future former host of The View really knows how to kick a guy when he's down!

Preliminary ratings show that Williams' lying scandal has cost NBC Nightly News; viewership in the 25-54 age range dropped an alarming 36 percent Friday night!

But that didn't stop Rosie from keeping the newsman on blast. Actually, she burned herself pretty well while she was at it!

While presenting an award at the Athena Film Festival in New York on Saturday, Rosie reportedly pointed at a woman in the audience and joked:

Brian Williams Cancels His Late Show With David Letterman Appearance After Stepping Away From Nightly News

Filed under: TV NewsDavid LettermanTom Hanks

Brian Williams and David Letterman won't be chatting on Thursday

It's a bummer to be David Letterman.

Weeks ago, the Late Show host scheduled NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams to be a guest on Thursday night's show, but it's not happening now.

Last week, news broke that Williams lied about being on a helicopter that was hit by enemy fire. Since then, he's voluntarily removed himself from his news program, and canceled the Late Night With David Letterman appearance.

Some people are really upset for David because this could have been a huge interview, since it's obviously an inneresting scandal, and was set for Thursday night.

The good news is that they were able to book Tom Hanks instead, and who doesn't love Tom Hanks?!

We're curious what you think

Brian Williams Is Removing Himself From NBC Nightly News Temporarily After Lying To Everyone!

Filed under: TV NewsNews

no title

This is a bold move!

Brian Williams just announced that he'll be LEAVING his show NBC Nightly News although it will only be a temporary departure!

Williams has been in hot water ever since it was revealed that a story he's been telling for years - about a helicopter he was on getting hit by a RPG - was actually false and he was on a different helicopter.

But we guess Brian's original apology was NOT enough as the situation has snowballed until his just announced departure!

Lester Holt will be taking over for Brian Williams in the meanwhile while NBC conducts their own internal investigation.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsNews

Since Brian Williams admitted to lying about being on a helicopter that took fire in Iraq, many have wondered if he's lied about anything else.

Currently in question is Williams' depiction of seeing a dead body float by in New Orleans' French Quarter during Hurricane Katrina — an area that did not actually experience flooding.

Williams' claim that he got dysentery from accidentally ingesting floodwater during his Peabody Award-winning coverage of the storm is also under review.

The Iraq lie alone has led many to ask how long he'll remain as the anchor on NBC Nightly News.

According to NBC sources, one of the people looking for Williams to resign is his predecessor Tom Brokaw! A source said:
