According to 'The New York Times' CBS will announce the planned revamp in New York on Tuesday. The network is expected to reveal a shift in direction away from the coffee klatch feel of most morning talk shows and towards a focus on hard news with the panel format of shows like MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' and ABC's 'The View.'
Current co-host Chris Wragge will reportedly lose his job in the reshuffle, but Erica Hill and Jeff Glor will keep theirs. Hill -- who was promoted when Smith et al. were fired -- will anchor the 7-8AM hour with '60 Minutes' contributor Rose. Meanwhile King will take on the 8--9AM slot with the aid of featured correspondents and contributors.

After the jump, the late night talk shows.
(S07E17) Oh my my... have we seen the future of 'Two and a Half Men' and it's Alan and Charlie sitting on a couch vegetating, bickering and grateful to have each other to clean up their dribble? Maybe. And if you think Charlie's gotten over Chelsea, think again. Evelyn might want to hang on to the banquet hall at the Beverly Hills Hotel. More on that and the dancing Japanese Kabuki transsexuals after the jump.
That's exactly what the parent owners of Fox News and MSNBC tried to do when they arranged a "cease-fire" between them and their top-tier shows' "lieutenants."
The cease-fire, however, didn't last long. It's another case of the ol' Rufus T. Firefly conundrum for peace. Either side might be willing to do whatever it takes to end this war, but they've already paid two months' rent on the battlefield.
The PBS talk show host accidentally declared the death of filmmaker George Butler on his show as part of a 2008 retrospective.
The George Butler in question was actually jazz musician George Butler, the first man to sign Wynton Marsalis to a record deal. The filmmaker George Butler made the documentary Pumping Iron that helped bring Arnold Schwarzenegger to the world's eye, the silver screen and, eventually, to the California Governor's office. He may not be alive after I made that little factoid known, depending on how well our traffic is doing.
NBC reportedly thinks Piers Morgan could be the next big thing in talk. The bitter Brit, a personality as caustic as Simon Cowell, was the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice and is the nastiest judge on America's Got Talent. Morgan has a two-year deal with ITV and is on the verge of inking a similar contract with NBC. The idea is that he could be the next David Frost.

Like everyone else and their mother-in-law's dog, we here at TV Squad love ourselves some YouTube. Whether you're a bored teenager illegally uploading the latest episode of Robot Chicken, a network executive using the site to promote the pilot for a new series, an enterprising animator who wants to use the site to introduce their latest creation to the public, or one of a plethora of bored jackasses who like to stand in front of a camera and act like a buffoon, YouTube really has something for everybody. Or should that be "bored buffoons who act like jackasses?" Well, anyway, it's a pretty kick ass site, and if you clicky-click here you can see an interview Charlie Rose did with the site's founders, Chad Hurley and Steven Chen. It's the last segment, so you'll have to skip ahead. Like all of Rose's interviews, it's quite informative. Enjoy.
