Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and Stephen Colbert's competing/companion March to Keep Fear Alive was refreshingly free of the usual liberal-vs.-conservative rhetoric and instead pointed a finger at a different adversary: the country's mass media.

"We live now in hard times, not end times," The Daily Show host told the crowd during his "keynote address" Saturday at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Fergie Duets with a Legend at Grammy Awards

Fergie by Cliff Lipson/CBS

The list of 2008 Grammy Awards performers and presenters is getting longer by the day as the Feb. 10 event draws closer. Piling up in a star-studded harmony of names, the latest performances announced include the pairing of Fergie, who's nominated for Best Female Pop Vocalist Performance, with soul crooner John Legend. In a special segment, Josh Groban will be singing along with pop opera (popera, if you will) singer Andrea Bocelli, in their first joint performance ever. New presenters have also been announced, and include teen phenoms Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus, along with fresh adds Solange Knowles, George Lopez, Lyle Lovett and Ludacris. With all these additions to an already robust roster, the show should be seriously g-l-a-m-o-r-o-u-s, which attendees should be able to both embody and spell. — Anna DimondRelated: • Michael Jackson to Show His Face at the Grammys?• Winehouse Set to Go, Go, Go to the Grammys• Party Central: Wolfgang Puck Cooks Up a Grammy Ce... read more

At the 2007 Emmys: Part 1

(Not-so-) fresh off the plane, me with the famous "Hollywood" sign in the distance.

Friday, Sept. 14, 8:21 am/ETAs you may have surmised by Ben Katner's byline on Friday's Today's News blog, I am en route to the Emmys in the Los Angeles of the California. Seat 23F, two nice nonsmelly ladies sitting next to me, waiting for the plane to pull away from the gate. Window seat. No dents in the wing — always a good sign in my book. The flight attendant is giving that spiel about, "If you are not headed to Los Angeles...," where I always expect (but never get) some poor sap rising and exclaiming, "Holy crap! Wait!"Ausiello is also in the air, but on a different plane. Flew out of LaGuardia (versus Newark), Mr. City Mouse did. Hey, fewer people climbing over me to get his autograph, right?If you haven't checked it out yet, you should really swing by TVGuide.com's Emmy Watch site. A lot of hard work by a lot of fantastic people went into it.

Casting Quickies: 24, 30 Rock and More!

Jamison Jones, who bosses around Peter Parker at the Bugle had a role in the 2003 crime drama Hollywood Homicide, has been cast on 24 in the recurring role of the head of President Wayne Palmer's Secret Service detail. Interestingly (I suppose), Jones played a deputy in a pair of 24's Season 2 episodes.... Peter Hermann is a fabulously coiffed MSNBC reporter whom Tina Fey's Liz falls for on the Jan. 18 episode of 30 Rock.... John Legend guests as himself on the Jan. 19 Las Vegas. read more

Music Video Musings from the Treadmill

Buttonz? Yodeling? Paul Wall? If I am at all current on the music kids are listening to these days — and my niece Phoenix will be the first to say I am not — it's only because my weekend routine finds me watching VH1 videos while doing cardio (and reading the latest periodicals, because I'm such the multi-tasker) at the local health club. Herewith are my thoughts on some of today's heavily-played "tracks," in no particular order other than how they pop into my mind:"About Us," Brooke Hogan (with the aforementioned Paul Wall)So, this is Hulk's daughter, eh? I read something somewhere about how she whipped herself into shape for this, partly via mad amounts of jump-roping, hence (I can only assume) the activity's inclusion in the vid. Mr. Wall's orthodontic issues aside, it's a catchy tune, though I must opine that Brooke and her posse get served in the video's dance-off at the end. I mean, did you see that one chick's crazy leg moves? It's like she has no femur."My Love," J... read more

Tony Bennett's Instant Classic

Consider this an unqualified rave. NBC is offering a deluxe sweeps and holiday treat in Tuesday’s prime-time special Tony Bennett: An American Classic (8/7c), which is as lustrously filmed as it is impeccably sung. For those of us who’ve been waiting for Oscar-nominated director Rob Marshall (Chicago) to tackle a new musical project, here it is. Marshall has lovingly conceived and masterfully executed a shimmering, swinging hour of razzle-dazzle showmanship that redefines what a variety special can be.I’m tempted to say they don’t make ’em like this anymore, but the truth is, even back when they did, they didn’t make ’em this good very often. (What this special reminded me of most, especially in the elaborate and evocative production numbers, was Bob Fosse’s landmark Liza With a Z special that Showtime so magnificently resurrected and restored earlier this year.)This is the rare music special that looks as good as it sounds. And it sounds spec... read more
