Brian Williams Leaving NBC News For Surgery!

Filed under: TV NewsHealthInjurySurgery

brian williams knee surgery leaving anchor nbc news

High school is coming back to haunt Brian Williams, and he's going to have to leave his anchor post for a while because of it!

No, he doesn't have to retake a test he cheated on or anything… he has to replace an entire knee, because it was damaged in a high school football game! Damn you, high school football!!

LOLz!

Still, the situation sucks for Brian because he wants to get a knee replaced and, for that, he'll have to take a leave from work (and rapping)? Especially if you're a workaholic and professional like ol' B Billy (we're pretty sure that won't stick, ha!)!

Here's something interesting though

tom brokaw says lindsay lohan ruined white house correspondents dinner

We hope you have your fanciest suits and ties ready, because tomorrow night is the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, one of the most prestigious gatherings of politicians, celebrities, and press of the year!

Well, at least it used to be that way according to Tom Brokaw!

The NBC news anchor says the once distinguished dinner party has become a bit of a laughingstock, and it's all thanks to Lindsay Lohan!

LiLo attended last years event, and he was NOT thrilled about it, saying:

Ann Curry Was MORE POPULAR With Today Show Viewers Than Matt Lauer! ALL THE DEETS From The EXPLOSIVE New York Magazine Article HERE!

matt new york article

It's pretty bad when the actual, behind-the-scenes drama is even WORSE than what's being reported in the news!

But unfortunately, in the case of much-reported-upon, devastating drama on The Today Show that left Ann Curry fired, Matt Lauer looking like a real piece of work, and Good Morning America knocking them out of the ratings for the first time in 16 years, it wasn't just bad - it was a downright CLUSTERF-CK.

On top of the news that came to the light this morning which revealed the widely-criticized news anchor fooled ABC into negotiating a deal he never planned to take to secure his position at NBC, as well as a pay-day and assurance that Ann would get let go, the EXPLOSIVE new article in New York Magazine delves even deeper in the complex back-stabbing, paranoia, and shady negotiations that went on at 30 Rockefeller Center…and it ain't pretty!

For instance, even though Lauer, Today Show executive producer Jim Bell, and several NBC affiliates thought Curry was the problem, there was CLEAR internal research that showed that audiences agreed it was MATT who was the less appealing one, as he came off as "aloof, a little bit holier-than-thou and pompous.”

And despite his attempts to appear sad and regretful about the way everything went down,

Matt Lauer SPEAKS About Ann Curry's Today Show Firing! Was He Responsible?!

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

matt lauer today

It's no secret that The Today Show has pretty much been a disaster, behind-the-scenes and in the ratings alike, since Ann Curry was controversially sacked from the position of co-anchor last June, but finally, after all these months, Matt Lauer, otherwise known as the man long-rumored to be behind the decision to show her the door is speaking out about the entire ordeal!

And get this!

He's even admitting that it was all grossly mishandled!

However, don't get it twisted! He's not saying he was the one pushing for Curry's exit!

In fact, he was apparently even willing to resign, if NBC executives thought it would mean improvements in the ratings!

As he explains:

Could Sheen Possibly Return To Two And A Half Men???

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteCharlie SheenTwitter

could charlie sheen return to two and a half men

Will Charlie Sheen and Two and a Half Men ever get back together?

Believe it or not, some sources are saying yes!

Here's what NBC News reporter Jeff Rossen had to say about it on Twitter:

“Sources close to Charlie Sheen tell NBC News, CBS has offered him his job back. Discussions ongoing. Not a done deal.”

And here's what Rossen said in clarification, after he realized that Warner Bros is in charge of hiring, not CBS:

“IF Warner Bros., Chuck Lorre, and Sheen can settle [their] differences”

"To be clear, there are 2 companies involved. Sources say, CBS would be happy to take Charlie back, but he still needs to reach deal with WB."

We're not so sure that we see Warner Bros changing their mind on the subject…BUT we suppose it's possible they could be having second thoughts after hearing reports that Sheen had a meeting with Fox.

Do U think there's any chance that WB would re-hire Sheen for Two and a Half Men?

The Military Is Cool With The Repeal Of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' According To New Study!

new-military-study-reveals-that-troops-are-ready-for-dont-ask-dont-tell-to-be-repealed

Well if this doesn't prove that this horrible policy is unnecessary, then we don't know what does!

The Pentagon recently released a study that found that MOST U.S. troops and their families DO NOT CARE whether or not gays are allowed to serve their country openly, and are ready for 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' to be abolished!

YES!

Richard Engel, of NBC News, announced the findings yesterday on The Rachel Maddow Show, and the details of the findings will be fully disclosed when the repeal process begins on December 1st!

We'll be very CURIOUS to hear about the full results, but clearly, this says quite a bit about where the military stands on this matter!

And if THEY don't care, why the EFF should anyone else?!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
