by Donald Deane, posted Apr 19th 2010 11:30AM
Fans of Neil Patrick Harris might be surprised to learn the actor suffered a slight case of nerves when performing his surprise musical number at the 2010 Academy Awards, he said on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS).

While the actor didn't panic while performing in front of the Hollywood elite, he did admit to having some anxiety during his unannounced song-and-dance number, which was a last-minute addition to the award show and required him to rehearse in secret. "I was a little bit nervous," Harris said. "When you're looking down and seeing George Clooney, it's a little freaky."

CBS Anchor Is Smitten with Carrie UnderwoodJeff Glor, co-host of 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS), seems to have a bit of a crush on singer Carrie Underwood. In fact, he makes a special request: can he sit next to her? "I know you want to sit next to Carrie..." says co-host Maggie Rodriguez. Mr. Glor plops down next to Carrie Underwood, and then they all discuss Underwood's new fiancee: hockey player Mike Fisher.

So we've already got Glor flirting with Underwood. But then, Rodriguez asks to see Underwood's engagement ring, and her fingers caress Underwood's hand for an... oddly long time. Are both CBS anchors flirting with Ms. Underwood? Judge for yourself.

Oprah Swipes Shaun White from 'The Early Show'

Did it seem weird to anyone else that Oprah Winfrey managed to score the first big interview with Olympic wonderboy Shaun White? That's because her awesome Oprah powers allowed her to scoop the entire mainstream media.

Actually, CBS' 'Early Show' had plans to do a remote interview with the snowboarder, but Oprah's people snatched it away from them in the zero hour.

One of the network's news producers wrote on her blog that she had everything from flights to remote broadcasts set up to interview White following his medal ceremony, but "it's tough to compete with Oprah and a private plane."

ABC to Reevaluate Live Performance Policy After Adam Lambert Controversy

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 1st 2009 3:30PM
Rest easy, shielders of the horrified eyes of America's children. There will be no more scandalous Adam Lambert-type live performances, at least not on ABC.

Reuters reports that, in response to Lambert's notorious number on Nov. 22's American Music Awards, ABC is reviewing its live performance policy and will force future live performers to sign contracts assuring the network that they won't spring any surprises during live broadcasts that ABC censors haven't vetted during rehearsals.

"We certainly don't want to suppress artistry at any level," Disney/ABC Television Group President Anne Sweeney told Reuters on Monday, "but we also have to be very cognizant of who our audience is." Sweeney did not say what measures would be taken to enforce such no-spontaneity contracts. (Will they sue overly exuberant performers? Dock their pay? Hold their fees in escrow until the FCC decides whether or not to levy an indecency fine?)

Did Cusack cuss?

Hey guys, remember when you were a kid and you really wanted to see a boobie but your parents had Cinemax blocked and your house did not yet have the ability to magically access the bottomless reservoir of nudity on the Internet? Your mind would do whatever it could to see a boobie. It would trick you into thinking two conveniently placed melons were boobies. It would make you think that the Calgon commercial accidentally showed a boobie. It would get you to watch every episode of Benny Hill with the hope of seeing a boobie.

That's how I feel of this recent news post at Newsbusters that claims 2012 star John Cusack uttered a rather nasty word on a recent episode of The Early Show. And no, it wasn't boobie.

Maybe it's just my hearing. Can you hear the word? It's supposed be towards the end of the video after host Harry Smith asks Cusack "Does it seems like 20 years ago already?" in reference to the 20 year anniversary of his classic film Say Anything.
