Kate Bolduan, Chris Cuomo, Michaela Pereira
If we've learned anything from the turmoil at NBC's Today, it's that morning show co-anchors better like each other if they're going to succeed.
Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan, the duo that will lead CNN's New Day when it premieres on June 17, appear to have that aspect of the job down. They frequently have...
America's Most Wanted may be coming to a close, but John Walsh isn't getting out of the crime-fighting business. In his first interview since TV Guide Magazine broke the news that Lifetime had canceled AMW, Walsh says he's mulling several options for his next move in TV.
Julie Scardina, Jay Leno
NBC announced on April 3 that Jay Leno will once again hand over the reins of NBC's Tonight Show — which he began hosting in 1992 — this time to Late Night's Jimmy Fallon. Leno says that after he signs off in February 2014, you'll find him in his garage. But it's more likely the car enthusiast will be back in front of a camera than under the hood of a classic Chevy.
One industry insider who knows Leno says two cable networks have already approached the comic about launching a new show after he leaves NBC. By that time, Leno will be 64 — considered over the hill for the 18- to 49-year-old viewers advertisers seek in late night. But in the wider TV landscape, where octogenarians such as Barbara Walters and Regis Philbin still hold jobs, he's practically a youngster.
Jay Leno will leave The Tonight Show (again) next spring. What's he doing after that? More stand-up, he tells The New York Times, but no TV — for now. "I've done this job for a long time and I really enjoy it," he tells the paper. "Would I do it again? Believe me, the phone's not ringing off the hook. It will be nice if people seem interested. But I'll let it sit where it is."
Even if no one is calling right now (doubtful), it's hard to believe that Leno — who hasn't hinted at retirement since the Conan O'Brien Tonight Show succession plan was announced in 2004 — will be off our screens for too long. So what are his options? We weigh the possibilities...

The behind-the-scenes drama at the Today show surrounding Ann Curry's departure is the story that keeps on giving. Now, a new report in New York magazine claims Matt Lauer nearly moved to ABC last year, amid a leak that Ryan Seacrest had been approached to replace him on Today.
In today's increasingly niche media landscape, CNN's Jake Tapper is happy to be a generalist. Starting Monday, the former ABC News White House correspondent anchors a new daily program, The Lead With Jake Tapper, which he promises will be a smart, wide-ranging look at the world. You can expect some of the usual suspects from the Beltway to appear on the Washington-based show. But Tapper also plans to mix in some big names from pop culture and television. Stephen Colbert, Shonda Rhimes, the cast of Mad Men, Jimmy Kimmel, Game of Thrones executive producer David Benioff are all lined up for the first month. The Lead will be closely watched by the TV news industry, as it's the first new CNN show since Jeff Zucker took the helm as president. The Biz recently caught up with Tapper to get a preview.
Joy Behar will leave The View after 16 years with the ABC daytime talk show, Deadline.com reports.
