Band Aid 30
A group of artists including Rita Ora, One Direction and Ed Sheeran have re-recorded "Do They Know It's Christmas?" to raise money for Ebola.
The original song, which was recorded by the charity super group "Band Aid" in 1984, was written by Bob Geldoff and Midge Ure to raise money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia. The single, which sold over two million copies and raised more than $24 million, featured U2, Phil Collins, Sting, David Bowie and more. (Watch the original video here.) The song has since been redone in 1989, under Band Aid II, and in 2004 under "Band Aid 20." Neither reincarnation matched the original in both sound and success.
Fall TV pop contest: The winner is ...
Karl Stefanovic, Lisa Wilkinson
An Australian news anchor has worn the same suit for a year to make a point about sexism.
"I'm judged on my interviews, my appalling sense of humour — on how I do my job, basically," Karl Stefanovic told The Age. "Whereas women are quite often judged on what they're wearing or how their hair is ... that's [what I wanted to test]."
Fall popularity contest: See who won!
Stefanovic says his Today co-host, Lisa Wilkinson, receives criticism on a daily basis for her clothes, her hair and her overall appearance.

"The reason this all started, this was a show of support for me," Wilkinson says in the broadcast below. "You were very much in accord with me about the issues that happen for women on television and the criticism over what we wear... You said, 'I'm going to wear the same suit every day and see if anyone even notices.'" Stefanovic then says he wore the suit for a month before he even told Wilkinson of the plan.
Nearly five years after her contentious exit from ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Katherine Heigl is returning to television for what she calls an extraordinary series: NBC's new political drama State of Affairs.
"Why now? This project is an extraordinary opportunity for me," Heigl tells us in the video interview below. "I made a difficult decision [to leave Grey's], but it was the right decision for me at the time. I really just wanted to spend more time with my family and my new baby and extend my family and I'm really grateful to have been able to do that and I'm very grateful for these last couple of years."
After five seasons on The Vampire Diaries, is the show's sole mortal Matt Donovan ready to leave his vampire friends behind?
"Initially those questions of whether you're pro-human or equal opportunity would've been hard to make," Zach Roerig told TVGuide.com during our recent visit to the show's set. "But now he's seen enough terrible violence and seen his friends commit these terrible acts [and] he's had a long enough time to distance himself. I think Matt realizes he just wanted a normal life and the only reason he's had to go through all this is because he's been such a dedicated friend. We all face that in life, where so many strikes happen against a friend and at some point you have to let them go and move on. I think that's where Matt is."<
