Marc Anthony on 'Nightline' on 'Good Day New York'You knew when Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez announced their divorce in July that the exclusive interviews wouldn't be far behind. They have arrived, the latest one being Marc Anthony's interview with John Quinones for 'Nightline' Thursday night. Friday morning, 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) entertainment reporter Julie Chang recounted the interview.

Chang said the couple had mutually agreed to the divorce. "We realized very, very early on that even though we're not together, this story's not over," Anthony told 'Nightline.' "There's stuff to do together. There's life to see together through Max and Emmy. You know what I mean? So it's all good, man."

Casey Anthony Juror No. 3: 'Not Guilty Doesn't Mean Innocent' (VIDEO)

Jennifer Ford, Casey Anthony Trial Juror, 'Primetime Nightline'With the prosecution failing to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury in the Casey Anthony presented the most controversial "Not guilty" verdict since O.J. Simpson's trial.

On 'Primetime Nightline: Casey Anthony: Not Guilty' (Wed., 10PM ET on ABC), they had one of the jurors, Jennifer Ford, in the trial on to talk about the verdict, and her feelings about the case.

When asked why they declared Anthony not guilty, she stated, "There wasn't enough evidence. If you're going to charge someone with murder, don't you have to know how they killed someone, or why ... where/when/why/how? Those are important questions that were not answered."

But a verdict in a court of law on very specific charges is one thing. When asked if she thought Anthony might have killed her daughter, Ford replied, "I feel like she had something to do with it." But she wouldn't speculate further.

The First of the Trapped Chilean Miners Reaches The Surface (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 13th 2010 8:00AM
If there's been a more universally compelling human interest story than that the 33 Chilean miners, trapped in a collapsed mine for 69 days, it's difficult to recall it.

For the first 17 days of their ordeal, the miners had no idea if anyone would ever find them in their tomb a half mile beneath the surface. Then, once contact was made, they had no idea when they'd be getting out, as nobody was sure how long it would take to reach them.

Florencio Avalos was the first miner to smell fresh air, pulled above ground in a 13-foot long cigar-shaped capsule designed by NASA in collaboration with the Chilean Navy.

Robert Pattinson Believes He'll Die at 30 (VIDEO)

If a vampire with a death wish isn't a contradiction in terms, we don't know what is. On 'Nightline' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on ABC), 'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson said he's wary of having too much good luck early in life, because he's afraid of dying young as part of God's way to even things out.

Jesse James Gets Weepy on 'Nightline' (VIDEO)

Jesse James Gets Weepy on 'Nightline'Jesse James appeared for an interview on 'Nightline' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on ABC) -- and on the show, he discussed the scandal involving him and his wife Sandra Bullock. Well, actually, it's his soon-to-be-former-wife Sandra Bullock, because it's now been a month since she announced that she was getting a divorce from James.

During the interview, James tried to explain away some of the damage that he has done by having an affair with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee -- as well as several other ladies. But then, he just sort of ended up crying on camera. Gosh, dude. Either be a tough biker guy or don't. Cheat on your wife or don't. But crying about it doesn't really seem to help matters.

James admitted that he was "the most-hated man in the world," He told a rambling story about his childhood that was somehow meant to explain his bad behavior -- then, he dissolved into tears.

Jay Leno's 'Tonight Show' Return Is a Ratings Winner

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 2nd 2010 2:30PM
Jay LenoMeet the new boss, same as the old boss.

To no one's surprise, Jay Leno's much-heralded return to 'The Tonight Show' on Monday was a ratings success, at least according to early overnight numbers. According to the Hollywood Reporter, advance numbers show Leno winning his timeslot with a 5.4 rating in metered market households and a rating of 2.0 among adults 18-49. That easily beat the 3.0 household rating for 'The Late Show With David Letterman' on CBS and the ABC ratings (cited by Entertainment Weekly) of 3.4 for 'Nightline' and 1.8 for 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'

Leno's return had coattails too. Following 'Tonight,' NBC's 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' posted a 2.1 rating, twice its fourth-quarter 2009 average and enough to beat usual timeslot victor 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson' by 40 percent.

Ted Koppel may return to ABC to host This Week

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 7th 2010 8:42PM
Thank God for the Internet. If that headline had been spoken on the radio or a TV news show, it would have sounded like some bizarre Abbott and Costello routine.

"Did you hear that Ted Koppel may be hosting This Week on ABC?"

"Really, what show?


"I sure want to know the name of the show he'll be hosting on ABC."

"Well I just thought I'd tell you."

"Well I just thought I'd ask."

"Ask me what?"

"I don't know."

OK, maybe that Martha Stewart/Rachael Ray feud is real

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 18th 2009 6:00PM
Rachael, MarthaI watched Martha Stewart on Rachael Ray last week and then Rachael on Martha the following day, and both shows were interesting. I noticed that Rachael had Martha sit down and talk and take questions, but Martha got Rachael in the kitchen baking right away with little small talk. The funniest moment came from Rachael's show: when both came out of the elevator, Rachael tried to grab Martha's hand but Martha pulled it away quickly. Ha!

Anyway, they talked about the so-called "feud" that had been reported everywhere, and both dismissed it. I don't know how you can dismiss something that Martha herself said on her own show (among other things) but they said there was no truth to any feud rumors. I wonder what they'll say after Martha's appearance on Nightline tomorrow night.

Letterman beating O'Brien with old shows

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 21st 2009 9:01AM
Letterman and O'BrienNBC must be doing a lot of regretting these days for moving Jay Leno to 10 p.m., and not just because it screws up the perfect headline alliteration with his former competition.

It seems that David Letterman's Late Show reruns are getting higher ratings than Conan O'Brien's brand-spanking new Tonight Show episodes.

The margins aren't very wide, but it must hurt when a rival is kicking your lily-white hide and he's not even throwing any punches. It's like getting your ass kicked by a one legged Stephen Hawking.

There are very few exclusives in TV news nowadays

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 2nd 2009 5:01PM
Michael JacksonWe've talked about this a lot here at TV Squad, how the word "exclusive" isn't used correctly in TV news these days. In fact I'll go one step further and say that networks often lie when they say something is an "exclusive." They'll say that an interview with a famous celebrity or a politician is an exclusive, but you realize you just watched an interview with the same person on another network the night before, or there's an interview with the same person the next day.

Now, some networks will say they have an exclusive before another interview airs, so in that case I guess we can say they're right (if we give them the benefit of the doubt that they didn't know the other interview was coming, that is), but more often than not they know it's not an exclusive.

Could Nightline move to 10 PM to battle Leno?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 16th 2009 6:04PM
NightlineAccording to James Poniewozik, this isn't a done deal or even close to being a done deal, but it is certainly one of the moves that ABC is thinking about: Nightline might move to 10 PM from it's current 11:35 slot.

It would certainly be a lot cheaper than running dramas (which are usually the scripted shows the networks have at 10PM), and it could signal a change in the way that networks schedule their shows. This would also mean (in all likelihood) that Jimmy Kimmel Live would move into the 11:35 slot.

What are you watching tonight after your local news?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 1st 2009 11:34AM
So Conan O'Brien takes over The Tonight Show tonight, and I was wondering, what are you going to watch tonight? Conan? Letterman? Nightline? Something else?

I'm going to assume (if I may be so bold) that a lot of people are going to be watching Conan tonight. Not just old fans of Late Night or even fans of The Tonight Show. I bet there will be a lot of David Letterman fans watching and maybe even people who don't regularly watch late night television. Tonight is an institution and a lot of TV fans are going to be interested in seeing what exactly Conan is going to do on his first night.

I'm going to predict here and now that he'll thank Jay Leno (unlike Leno, who didn't thank Johnny Carson on his first show). So what are you going to watch?
