Short Cuts: Housewives, Barbara Walters and More

Former Frasier scribe Bob Daily has inked a three-year, mid-seven-figure deal with ABC that elevates his status at Desperate Housewives to executive producer/wingman to series creator Marc Cherry. "[Daily] has an innate understanding of how to mix the comedy and drama," Cherry tells Variety.... Barbara Walters was honored on Thursday with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But a note to tourists: If you take a picture of it, be sure to use a soft-focus lens.... NBC is no longer NUTS, having changed the name of its studio arm from NBC Universal Television Studio to Universal Media Studios.
