Katie Couric clocked 15 years on the Today show and five years behind the desk at CBS Evening News. For her new foray into daytime television she says she's going to put all those years of experience to good use.
"One of the exciting things for me about doing the show is I'm going to be able to flex all my muscles," Couric, 55, told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews. "I hope that people expect me to have the ability to tackle a lot of subjects well."
Ryan Seacrest and Sacha Baron Cohen
Sacha Baron Cohen didn't just surprise Saturday Night Live viewers when he made a cameo appearance on "Weekend Update" this Saturday. He also surprised show guest — and one of his most recent celebrity pranking targets — Ryan Seacrest.
In February, Cohen made national news on the E! Oscars pre-show when he "accidentally" spilled what...
Noah Wyle was arrested Monday during a protest in Washington, D.C., TMZ.com reports.

George Clooney and his father were among several protestors arrested Friday morning outside of the Sudan embassy in Washington, D.C.
"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children," Clooney's publicist told TMZ. "They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."
February's Big Event Scorecard: The Grammys had Adele. The Super Bowl had Eli Manning. The Oscars, the last and least of these annual TV spectacles, had ... Cirque du Soleil? And endless pointless montages of movie stars gushing about how wonderful the movies are. And Billy Crystal recycling age-old shtick, including the "What are they thinking?" gag that had us squirming along with the celebs in their seats, making for a night that was (to borrow from a nominated title) Extremely Long and Incredibly Dull.
Viola Davis, Jean Dujardin
Fun fact: No movie about movie-making has won Best Picture at the Oscars. Will The Artist break that tradition at the 84th Academy Awards? We'll have to wait until Sunday (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, ABC) to find out, but in the meantime, let's make some predictions. Check out the nominees here, print out your ballot, make your picks and compare them to ours below.
The pundits say history will repeat itself at the 84th Academy Awards, and they're not talking about the return (at long last!) of host Billy Crystal.
Oprah Winfrey, Jimmy Kimmel
Oprah Winfrey will join Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards, ABC announced on Thursday.
Winfrey, who's the recipient of the Academy's Jean Hershold Humanitarian Award this year, will be joined on the post-Oscars show by George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese and Helen Mirren, among others. Billy Crystal will kick off the program and Coldplay will close it out with a performance on the Kimmel outdoor stage.
Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson
Those writing about the inexorably declining ratings of American Idol will have to stand down for at least a day as the amateur talent competition stayed even with last week in the industry-prized 18-to-49 demographic, according to preliminary Nielsen figures.
Now, we'll have to see if the cliff-hanger involving the hopeful who fainted and fell off the stage gooses the ratings for Fox. (By comparison, fair or not, NBC's The Voice grabbed 17.69 million viewers with a 6.6 demo rating Monday night on its first regularly scheduled airing.)
