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

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.

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:

Prepare to see a lot less Maria Menounos on NBC!

With her contract about to expire, the peacock network wants to scale back her contributions on other programming like Today, Nightly News and Dateline but keep her on Access Hollywood.

Of course, that means a lot less money for Maria and is currently looking into other options.

Would U miss her on NBC???

Watch Out, Reality TV! Americans Are Watching The News Again!

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteBusiness Blitz

americans are watching news again

And why shouldn't they? There's been SO MUCH going on in the world these days!

For the first time in ten years, evening news broadcasts on NBC, ABC, and CBS have had a collective increase in viewers.

This shouldn't come as a total shocker though, given everything that's been going on in the news lately. We'd imagine the death of Osama bin Laden and the Royal Wedding probs helped bring in lots of viewers.

Here are a couple of noteworthy stats for evening news programs during this quarter:
