'In Memoriam': Halle Berry Honors Lena Horne at the OscarsThis year's "In Memoriam" feature provided a sober moment in the middle of 'The 83rd Annual Academy Awards' (Sun., 8:30PM ET on ABC) to remember those in the industry who passed away last year. As Celine Dion sang 'Smile', images of editors, directors, composers, designers, publicists and producers flashed on a screen.

Tony Curtis, Gloria Stuart, Leslie Nielsen, Lynn Redgrave, Pete Postlethwaite and Dennis Hopper were among the actors honored. Halle Berry then offered a special thanks to African-Americann entertainer Lena Horne. But where were Corey Haim, Peter Graves and Betty Garrett?

Jamie Lee Curtis, 'The Talk'Most of us have some ideas about fatherhood, and we're told that fathers play an important role and that they should be involved in their kids lives. And yet, on 'The Talk' (Weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Jamie Lee Curtis talked candidly about her own famous father's lack of involvement in her life. Perhaps even more surprising, she didn't seem particularly bothered by it.

She also described Tony Curtis as a fiction her father created. "This is a guy ... was in the Navy. ... He was a guy from the streets of New York and he became this other thing. He changed his name and he changed his whole life. And the invention of Tony Curtis was his life."

Alec Baldwin to co-host TCM's The Essentials

AB 30 RockAlec Baldwin is a very complicated, very smart, and very talented guy. In two interviews just a month or so apart this fall, he was complaining about his career, contemplating other things he wanted to do with his life ... and that was all before winning the Emmy for 30 Rock.

Whatever he envisions for a professional life away from acting, if that's to be the case, Alec Baldwin has signed on to co-host Turner Classic Movies' The Essentials, a weekly analysis of a classic movie with co-host Robert Osborne. The show, which airs every Saturday at 8 p.m., most recently featured actress Rose McGowan, and before her Carrie Fisher and Molly Haskell shared the duties with Osborne.

It's one of my favorite TCM programs, giving the hosts a chance to set up a great movie, offer commentary and stimulate conversation. Considering the fact that Alec is very opinionated and pretty funny, he should add a lot to The Essentials.

Fred and BarneyThere aren't a lot of TV shows that I can watch with my kids and enjoy them. They love crap on the Disney Channel and I love The Daily Show. While we both love Spongebob, I can only see the same episode so many times.

One show that seems to hold up for all of us is The Flintstones. The kids especially like the later episodes with Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm.
