This was another wrenching week in our nation's history when sudden tragedy galvanizes the country's attention, and all eyes (often fueled nowadays by social media) turn to TV for the latest developments — for better or sometimes worse, given the get-it-first-and-maybe-even-right nature of the 24/7 news cycle. We'll never forget those images of horror and heroism issuing from Boston, such is the nature of the medium and the immediacy of the message.
Here we go again. Jay Leno's contract with NBC's Tonight Show is up at the end of the 2013-14 season, leading to speculation that the network may put Late Night host Jimmy Fallon behind the desk at 11:35pm. Here are the hot topics bound to cause some network executives to lose sleep in the coming months...
Jon Stewart is going off the air — temporarily, that is.
Stewart will take a 12-week hiatus from The Daily Show this summer, TVGuide.com has confirmed. For eight of the 12 weeks, the program will air new episodes with correspondent John Oliver in Stewart's place.

Stewart is directing his first film, Rosewater, which he also wrote, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It's an adaptation of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari's 2011 memoir And Then They Came For Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity and Survival.
Hugh Grant, Jon Stewart
It's safe to say Jon Stewart isn't a member of the Hugh Grant fan club. The Daily Show host recently told Stephen Colbert that Grant is his least favorite guest of all time.
Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi
Jersey boy Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band got 12.12.12: The Concert for Sandy Relief off to a rollicking start Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden with a poignant opening set that included "Land of Hopes and Dreams," "Wrecking Ball" and "My City of Ruins."
The concert donated 100 percent of its proceeds to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, a large-scale relief effort launched specifically to aid people in the tri-state area whose lives were impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The concert was telecast commercial-free on 37 television networks in the U.S., as well as on radio stations and streaming sites around the country and...
Jon Stewart still can't believe he didn't figure out that his former Daily Show guest Paula Broadwell was having an affair with ex-CIA director David Petraeus.
Broadwell appeared on The Daily Show in January to promote her biography of the retired general, and in light of the affair, Stewart now realizes that her appearance was comprised of "innuendo after innuendo."
Earlier this year, author Paula Broadwell went on a book tour to promote her biography of Gen. David H. Petraeus All In, including an appearance on The Daily Show. But now that Slate has outed Broadwell as the woman with whom Petraeus had a career-ending affair, her praise of the former CIA director is more than a little awkward.
