Television networks planning Jackson coverage

1 hr 2 mins ago

 

NEW YORK – NBC executives changed their minds Sunday and decided to join other networks that will televise Michael Jackson's memorial service live this week.

 

NBC joins ABC, CNN, MSNBC and E! Entertainment in offering the ceremony live. It's set for 10 a.m. PDT (1700 GMT) Tuesday at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

 

NBC had initially planned only a one-hour prime-time special on Tuesday night, but said Sunday it would also cover the event live. It was not immediately clear who would anchor.

 

Charles Gibson will anchor coverage for ABC, which is setting aside its typical daytime programming.

 

CBS anchor Katie Couric will be at the Staples Center, although the network had not yet said whether it was offering live coverage of the memorial.

 

CNN has seen its ratings soar with the Jackson story, and it will show the memorial on the main network and HLN (formerly Headline News). CNN International will air the ceremony to the rest of the world. Anderson Cooper, Larry King and Don Lemon are the anchors for CNN coverage. Robin Meade, A.J. Hammer and Jane Velez-Mitchell will anchor at HLN. CNN en Espanol also will cover it.

 

Chris Jansing will anchor live coverage of the memorial on MSNBC. Fox News Channel hadn't announced its plans.

 

E! Entertainment will cover the ceremony on its television network and its Web site.

 

Enough already!! :gives: They do this for him but hardly pay respects for those that die for their countries. Hell, he was a child molester/pedophile! And they act like he was a hero, a god. Probably the same people that voted for the asshole we have for PONTUS now. :doh:

if no one would watch it would go away but facts are facts, people are watching all the specials and bring in viewers. just like anything else in life if it makes you money are you going to turn away from it? the media is only giving what a majority of the people are wanting or else it wouldn't be on.

Jade may have been a wild hair, but she went out just wanting to provide for her kids. the jackson family just wants the buxx and the publicity, and to put MJ up on the cross. my 002. *edit*.....and Jade wasn't a child molesting drug addict either.

maybe not, but she wasnt exactly a stand up person....she was a bitch from what i heard :s

 

besides, loads of people die of cancer, a 14 year old was on the news this week because he spent 3 years fundraising for Cancer Research and died a week ago....but i dont think he'll get a statue in his memory or his story made into a movie, do you? infact i dont think many people even know who he was....but he did more for the world than Jade did IMO

 

atleast MJ had talent, and while im not standing up for him, i think that what he did musically in the 80s was a greater contribution to the world than Jade Goody and her line of beauty products

If you can stand him! Sean Hannity hasnt really done shit as far as talking about Michael Jackson, that would interupt his Obama bashing time, but at least it's not Jackson, not to mention, the 2 biggest fucking idiots that never did a thing in their life are sucking up all the tv time they can get, Sharpton and Jackson, but hey, through this Jackson diversion, some of you might have missed that the supreme court over turned the verdict for the New York fireman, that got fucked in the ass cause they were white and passed the Srgnt test, no blacks passed it, so the court threw it out and said it was racist, so the guys that passed it never got their promotions, but supreme court said, "It aint gonna happen" and overturned it! but you would only catch that, if you actually were watching the Jackson coverage, since it's not really important news, and not worth interupting the so important Jackson coverage!

    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg
