How Will Christiane Amanpour Change ABC's 'This Week?'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 22nd 2010 10:02AM
Christiane AmanpourHere's a bit of news from our "Department of News that Everyone and Their Mother Saw Coming." Needless to say, they've been a little behind with the health care bill debate, and Tiger Woods' apology .

Christiane Amanpour has accepted the offer from ABC's news division to anchor the Sunday show 'This Week,' taking over for George Stephanopolous, who now anchors 'Good Morning America'. This means she'll be leaving CNN where she has racked up an impressive 18-year body of work consisting mostly of international reporting and journalism.

However, does this give her the chops to moderate a political fueled talk fest? There are yeas and nays on both sides of the question.

Tess HarperEXCLUSIVE: Veteran film and television actress Tess Harper ('Tender Mercies'; 'No Country for Old Men') will reprise her role as Jesse's (Aaron Paul) mom on AMC's Emmy-winning series 'Breaking Bad.' Star Bryan Cranston broke the news in his exclusive interview with AOL TV, saying, "She and Michael Bofshever, who plays [Jesse's] dad, are both back again and we're glad to have them, because they do a really solid job." According to Cranston, Harper's appearance will be a minor one, because the "storyline didn't put it in that way to explore more of Jesse's background, but that's neither here nor there." 'Breaking Bad' season 3 premieres Sun., Mar. 21 at 10PM. [AOL TV]

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?

"Exactly."

"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."

"THIRD BASE!"

ABC News' Sam Donaldson announces his retirement

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 16th 2009 12:01PM
Sam DonaldsonOne of the most recognizable figures in ABC News is saying goodbye to the daily grind. In his time with the network, Sam Donaldson has done it all, investigative reporter, anchor, host, talking head, and always with a distinctive, pugnacious style. After four decades at the job, ABC's Sam Donaldson is retiring.

He will be missed, especially at the network. Anchorman Charles Gibson acknowledged as much when he told the Washington Post that Donaldson's retirement "really is a loss of the bedrock" for ABC. These days, the big three have struggled to maintain their dominance in the news business with cable outlets offering so much blanket coverage compared to the nets. Sam Donaldson has been synonymous with ABC. He can't help but be missed. To this day, I think Ted Koppell is missed as well.
