Keith Olbermann, Bill O'Reilly
Keith Olbermann and Bill O'Reilly take pride in not backing down from anyone, especially each other. But did they give in to their bosses by agreeing to conclude their feud?
The MSNBC and Fox News hosts have engaged in an often-personal war of words for years. But they put their differences aside — or at least agreed to stop talking about them on-air — because of an intervention by the heads of their companies, The New York Times reports.
Can the Sundance Channel's Brick City inspire change in America's grittiest inner cities? The panel the show assembled for Friday's Television Critics Association press tour suggests it's possible: It featured members of the rival Crips and Bloods gang sharing the stage with a police director from Newark, N.J., where the documentary is set.
Sundance is presenting Brick City as a street-level portrayal of inner city life that offers more nuance and optimism than HBO's The Wire. Executive produced by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, it features Newark's mayor, Cory Booker, whose campaign to unseat Newark's previous mayor was the subject of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Street Fight.

He also hinted about how the NCIS storyline that ended with Chris O'Donnell's character, Special Agent G. Callen, taking a bullet will continue on the spin-off. "It's four months later and it's ...
CBS' new organ transplant drama, Three Rivers, has made organ donors of its stars. Most of them, anyway.
Castmates Alex O'Loughlin (Moonlight), Alfre Woodard (St. Elsewhere), Justina Machado (Six Feet Under) and other series regulars addressed the issue during a set visit as part of the Television Critics Association fall press tour.
O'Loughlin said he's been a donor since his teenage years.
"It just seemed like the cool thing to do," he joked, before adding, "I don't need it anymore, and I don't have any religious beliefs or anything that keep me from doing it."

Kate and Leah Gosselin
Jon & Kate Plus 8 returns Monday from hiatus with brand new, post-split episodes that were handled with "great care and thoughtfulness" in light of Jon and Kate Gosselin's divorce, according to TLC.
"Our approach to the circumstance was simple: to cover the family with great care and thoughtfulness as they dealt with a subject that is all too familiar to many American families today," Eileen O'Neill, TLC president and general manager, said at the Television Critics Association panel Thursday. "We will continue to capture this family's journey in a respectful and sensitive way."

In the January 2008 issue of Vanity Fair, Heigl infamously said that she found the Judd Apatow comedy "a little sexist" because it "paints the women as shrews." But Heigl's latest cinematic offering, The Ugly Truth — in which her morning show producer must endure a series of tests about romance by Gerard Butler's chauvinistic correspondent — doesn't put women in a better light, according to Rogen and Apatow.
"That [movie] looks like it really ...
