You need a scorecard to keep track of all the comings and goings in the world of cable news. The latest mover-and-shaker: ABC newswoman Connie Chung. Mrs. Maury Povich is heading to CNN to anchor a news show at 8 pm/ET the timeslot formerly occupied by Greta Van Susteren, who defected to Fox News Channel earlier this month.
One of the sports world's most popular couples are splitting up.

Legendary actor Sidney Poitier will receive an honorary Oscar at the 74th annual Academy Awards on March 24. Poitier is being recognized "for his extraordinary performances and unique presence on the screen, and for representing the motion picture industry with dignity, style and intelligence throughout the world," says Academy president Frank Pierson. "When the Academy honors Sidney Poitier, it honors itself even more." This will be Poitier's second gold statue: He won an Oscar for 1963's Lilies of the Field.

Death and taxes aren't the only things you can count on; rather, you can bet good money that E! Entertainment Television's "Live from the Red Carpet" specials, hosted by Joan and Melissa Rivers, will kick off with a combination of Depends, body odor, fart and rectal thermometer jokes.

(The West Wing
) and co-host Melissa herself, the night's hallmarks were a few good sound bites, traditionally bad gaffes and wayyyy
too many cut-aways to mega-star
