Phineas and Ferb
Disney Channel is launching a month-long Phineas and Ferb event leading up to its annual National Platypus Day celebration on Saturday, March 2 — in honor of the show's resident platypus, Perry.
This year, they've enlisted some unusual help: Good Morning America anchors George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and Sam Champion can be seen in one spot dancing along to "O.W.C.A." (a riff, of course, on the Village People's "Y.M.C.A."). Phineas and Ferb fans know that "O.W.C.A." stands for Organization Without a Cool Acronym, the evil-fighting group where Perry the Platypus serves as his alterego Agent P.
The "O.W.C.A" song premieres on Radio Disney on Friday, the same day Disney Channel introduces the music video (which also includes a wide variety of Disney Channel stars dancing along).
The flagship episode ("Sidetracked") for this year's Phineas and Ferb "Platypus Day" will air Friday, March 1 at 9/8c. In the episode, Agent P teams up with his former partner, the human agent Lyla (voice of The Daily Show's Samantha Bee) to stop a hijacked train. On March 2, Disney Channel will air multiple episodes, while boy tween-centric Disney XD will run a five-hour marathon, starting with the new episode "Primal Perry," starting at 8 a.m./7c.
Jake Tapper, ABC News' chief White House correspondent, is leaving the network to become the chief Washington correspondent for CNN, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Election Day is finally here! And your favorite Tuesday night shows will step aside for wall-to-wall results coverage. Not sure what to watch when? Check out our roundup below to see what the networks have planned (all times Eastern):
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
In her first red carpet appearance since she publicly apologized to Robert Pattinson for cheating on him with Rupert Sanders, Kristen Stewart says it will be business as usual when she and her co-star reunite to promote the final Twilight film in November.
Talk about awkward.
After appearances on The Daily Show and Good Morning America this week, only one thing is certain about Robert Pattinson's reaction to Kristen Stewart's cheating on him: He doesn't want to talk about it.
Frances Quinn Hunter, John Edwards and Rielle Hunter
John Edwards and Rielle Hunter are no longer a couple, she revealed on Tuesday's Good Morning America.
"We are a family, but as of the end of last week, John Edwards and I are no longer a couple," she told GMA's George Stephanopoulos. "Not at all."

The Biz: Inside the morning show wars and Matt Lauer's new deal
"This is an exciting day but we will ...
Katie Couric and Josh Elliott
One lesson learned in this wearying week of morning-show warfare: Some people should never give up their dream day job. Which is why it was so gratifying for the week to end with the announcement that Today's Matt Lauer was staying put for years to come. I'd like to think he saw the future — or maybe Today's future — staring at him on Wednesday, when he sat across from...
George Stephanopoulos, Christianne Amanpour
With 24-hour access to video journalism on cable, your smartphone or iPad, nobody needs to wait until Sunday morning to find out what the presidential candidates have to say, right?
Don't tell that to the news divisions at CBS and ABC. Both are about to raise the stakes in the arena of Sunday inside-the-Beltway talk shows as they strive to remain the most important TV platform of the presidential campaign season...
Christiane Amanpour and George Stephanopoulos
Christiane Amanpour is set to return to CNN, vacating her anchor chair at ABC's This Week.
