'Early Show' Is (Finally!) Going HD

The Early Show 'The Early Show' is finally going HD, according to a new report from Media Bistro. It seems a little odd that it's taken the show so long to switch, especially considering that its morning show rivals, 'Today' and 'Good Morning America,' already broadcast in HD.

Perhaps this is CBS' attempt to boost ratings and skew to a younger audience, which was nudged along a couple of years ago when it re-launched the show with a colorful new widescreen set. According to Media Life, the show averaged a measly 2.52 million viewers during the first three months of 2010, putting it in third place among the network morning news programs.

"I was wrong for what I did," Brown said, who watched and reacted to clips of Rihanna's interview with Diane Sawyer last month. "I would definitely say that it's not something I look past or look over."

Robin Roberts returns on Monday

Robin RobertsGood Morning America co-host Robin Roberts will return to the ABC show on Monday.

Roberts underwent surgery last week after discovering she had breast cancer. The surgery went well and Roberts is now awaiting test results to figure out what her next step should be. ABC spokesperson Bridgett Maney says that Roberts is feeling great and is looking forward to getting back to work.

Roberts will be returning at an interesting time, as the newest Nielsen numbers indicate that the ratings for the 18-49 demographic are down 10% for all morning shows (GMA, Today, and The Early Show) compared to the same time last year. Meanwhile, the cable news morning shows have seen increased ratings.

Katie Couric is failing because of her voice

CouricThat's the opinion of New York Post columnist Cindy Adams.

Besides the hype and media attention and marketing mistakes made by CBS, Adams thinks that it's Couric's voice is turning off viewers. That regular network news viewers want the stronger, deeper voice of a male anchor like Charles Gibson or Brian Williams.

Will Anderson Cooper host The Early Show?

Anderson CooperThat's the buzz from "insiders" at CBS News. FOX News is reporting that CNN's Anderson Cooper could become the new host of the morning show, along with NBC's Campbell Brown, who is unhappy that she didn't get the Today gig when Katie Couric went to host The CBS Evening News.

It's not such a crazy idea, since Cooper is already working on 60 Minutes. But what would happen to Anderson Cooper 360? He'd have to give that up. Maybe Harry Smith can take that job if Cooper goes to CBS. Nah, Harry Smith 360 just doesn't have the same ring to it.

What do you think? I think Anderson Cooper is good, but would he want to give up the harder news that he does at CNN to host a morning show again, especially after early morning gigs on World News Tonight and American Morning? I'm not convinced, though I think it would finally give CBS' morning program the personality it needs.
