Taking a page from The Apprentice, NBC's Today show kicked off a weeklong series Friday morning called "The Intern." Of the eight contestants, four will win the grand prize: a special assignment with Katie, Matt, Ann and Al. The rest will get fired and shipped over to CBS' The Early Show. In related news, Katie Couric has landed an exclusive sit-down with disgraced former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair. It'll air March 5 on Dateline.
