Get a sneak peek of Ferguson-Carey job switch -- EXCLUSIVE

Craig Ferguson got a chance to practice for the game show gig he’ll start later this year. For April Fools Day, The Late Late Show funny man – who will host the syndicated game show Celebrity Name Game in the fall – switched places with Drew Carey of The Price is Right and got a chance to help fans figure out the cost of very important household items, like a beverage center. And Jeff joined him! Sweet.

Carey, in return, seemed to settle in quite nicely as the temporary host of The Late Late Show — though it helps to have a bitchen guest like Joan Jett.

Here’s a sneak peek of the stunt that’ll air tomorrow on CBS: READ FULL STORY

'Good Wife,' good viewership for CBS

The final episode for Josh Charles on The Good Wife Sunday was a boon to CBS, which was already poised hit a slam dunk with viewers thanks to the NCAA. CBS finished the night with a 2.3 rating in 18-49 and 11.7 million viewers, Nielsen says — with the Good Wife on track to post its second largest audience and second best 18-49 performance of the season.

From 9:30-10, Good Wife averaged 10.3  million viewers, a 1.7 in 18-49 (up oh-so-slightly from last week) and an impressive 2.6 in 25-54. It was CBS’ most watched series for the night, save what was achieved by 60 Minutes — which lured 13.25 million viewers because it came on late and right after college basketball. The Amazing Race averaged 9.8 million and a 2.0 rating. READ FULL STORY

Pluto.TV: Is this the new world of online video?

It started with Elmo. A little over a year ago, web entrepreneur Ilya Pozin was working on his computer with his two-year-old daughter perched in his lap. To keep her entertained, he was searching for online Sesame Street videos. He’d put one on, but after each one ended, his daughter would yell out, “More Elmo, Daddy!” —  and Pozin would have to go on the hunt for another video. “I’m sitting there thinking, ‘Why am I having to DJ for her every three minutes?’” Pozin says, laughing. “I should be able to just throw on a channel for my daughter that plays videos she loves constantly.”

So he and co-founders Nick Grouf and Tom Ryan built a new web platform, Pluto.TV, to do just that. The platform, which launched today, March 31, essentially sifts through the millions of online videos available on Youtube and elsewhere, finds the best ones, and then put them into channels, and shows on those channels, that run 24/7. It’s like a cable menu for online video. So, for instance, if you’re really, really into cute cat videos (and let’s face it, who isn’t), you can click on Pluto’s Cats channel, and watch a curated list of the best of those  —  everything from shows on “Big Cats” to “Kitten Zone” — all.day.long., for free. You can also DVR stuff and invite friends via Facebook to watch videos with you (and chat about them) live.

'Days of Our Lives': First look at gay wedding

Starting on Tuesday, Days of our Lives will feature the first daytime drama wedding between two men.

The NBC sudser will stretch the nuptials for Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Sonny Kiriakis ( Freddie Smith) over three consecutive episodes.

This isn’t the first gay wedding in daytime. That milestone occurred in 2009 on ABC’s All My Children, when Eden (Bianca Montgomery) and Tamara (Reese Williams) donned designer dresses to mark the first-ever lesbian wedding.

NBC began developing its first-ever gay storyline in 2011 with the introduction of Sonny.

'GMA' shakeup again: Josh Elliott out

Good Morning America’s winning team is about to get even smaller.

On the heels of Sam Champion’s high-profile departure to The Weather Channel, Josh Elliott is leaving ABC’s morning show to take a gig at NBC Sports. Elliott has been with the morning show since 2006.

Amy Robach will replace him, effectively immediately. Robach was already a member of the GMA team.

Elliott, whose contract was about to expire with ABC, was in negotiations when his GMA colleague Lara Spencer signed a new deal worth a reported $8 million-plus a year.  Elliott was making just over $1 million a year and was apparently looking for parity, especially in light of the new, $14 million contract recently inked by Robin Roberts, Deadline reports. (George Stephanopoulos’s deal isn’t up until the end of this year).

Elliott now becomes the second staffer on the morning show to jump to an NBC-Universal-owned network.

Newly-appointed Disney/ABC TV TV Group president Ben Sherwood sent out this note Sunday to the ABC News division:

“I’m excited to let you know that we have promoted Amy Robach to News Anchor on Good Morning America effective immediately. Amy is a world class anchor and correspondent who is beloved by our morning audience and all who know her. READ FULL STORY

Mindy Kaling talks using tongue with Chris Messina, where Danny and Mindy's relationship could go next -- LISTEN

Using tongue isn’t something trained actors are encouraged to do, but as Mindy Kaling joked when she stopped by EW Morning Live on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105), she and her Mindy Project co-star Chris Messina are Method — “or we’re just perverts or whatever.” She breaks down Mindy and Danny’s cliffhanger airplane kiss in the interview excerpt below (Messina grabbing her butt was not scripted).

Asked if the characters join the Mile High Club, Kaling teased, “The attempt is made. I won’t say if it’s successful or not successful. I will say that it’s funny. And kind of hot, in its own way.”

She goes on to explain all the different ways the show, which returns with a one-hour spring premiere April 1 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox, could go with the duo in its third season this fall. Have a listen. And yes, we would totally watch them shopping at Costco. READ FULL STORY

'Enlisted': Could it be going out in Mondo Spider-style? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

We’d be hard-pressed to name a cast and crew who’ve fought harder for their freshman show than the tweeting, app-ing, contest-participating gang of Fox’s funny, affecting comedy Enlisted. This week’s episode (Friday at 9 p.m. ET) is a big one: partly because it features the platoon being tricked into becoming test dummies for the Mondo Spider – watch a sneak peek below – and partly because the show’s time slot will be invaded by the hour-long Raising Hope series finale on April 4 and the new season of Kitchen Nightmares starting April 11.

Without airdates for Enlisted‘s remaining episodes (yet), enjoy this one while you can. READ FULL STORY

'The Good Wife': Julianna Margulies explains how she negotiated Josh Charles' season 5 contract

Julianna Margulies has no desire to direct, but she definitely earns her producer credit on The Good Wife.

CBS hosted a screening of the drama’s March 30 episode Wednesday night in New York, followed by a discussion with Margulies, co-creators Robert King and Michelle King, and Josh Charles, who makes his final appearance in the hour. By now, fans know his departure has been a year in the making. His contract expired at the end of the show’s fourth season, and the decision of whether or not to renew it coincided with when he was proposing to his wife and doing some soul-searching about his future. “Look, it’s a very long season doing a network television show, and somewhere in year 4, I kinda felt burnt out. Michelle and I had a long conversation about it, and I just felt a little fried and that I was ready for something different for me. That’s no reflection on how I feel about the show, it’s just more about what I want to do in my life,” he told moderator Charlie Rose. (“How much I’ve learned from working with Robert and Michelle about storytelling, the quality and depth of the writing — I mean, I’m afraid going out into the world,” he later admitted. “You don’t see that every day. That’s not something that I take lightly.”)

Margulies first learned Charles was thinking of not renewing his contract in March of 2013. “I got a call from Michelle and Robert, and they said, ‘We need to tell you something. Josh is gonna be leaving the show.’ And I said, ‘Why?‘ And they said, ‘Well, his contract is up, and he doesn’t want to renew.’ My head just started spinning. I said, ‘Well, well, well, wait. Did you see if he could do less episodes? Maybe offer him more directing gigs,” she recalled to much laughter. “I just became the Alicia lawyer trying to figure out how to negotiate this contract. And [the Kings] were both incredibly open about it. They said, ‘We’re open for anything. We don’t have enough time to say goodbye to his character properly in this short amount of episodes.’ Because we shoot so in advance, and they’ve written episodes and have a storyline planned. So it kinda meant his character was gonna just disappear, or someone was just gonna talk about him leaving, and I couldn’t accept that. I thought he’s been such an integral part of the show, such an integral part of my character, and I felt like if this is gonna happen, let’s do it right. And they said, ‘Good luck.’”

Once everyone finished laughing again, she continued. “I called Josh, and I gave him terrible Jew guilt. I knew he was about to get married. I’m good friends with his wife, and they’re dear friends of ours. I said, ‘Josh, how about this: 15. Think about it. Wait. Think about it. Money in the bank for 15 episodes. Do you know how expensive it is to have a baby in New York City?’ I went right to the kid thing, and it was disgusting, honestly,” she said. “We were looking at kindergarten for our son at the time, and I was like, ‘Do you know how much private school is in New York?’ I went on this whole thing about kids and family, and he was like, ‘Well, 15? Let me think about that.’ And I said, ‘And two directing slots!’ And then I hung up and called [the Kings], and I was like, ‘How about 15?’ And immediately they both said, ‘If we have an arc, and we know we can write starting next season and finish up this season as planned, we can do this.’ And so I said [to Josh], ‘They’re gonna write amazing stuff!’ And the next thing I knew, it happened.”

“No baby, yet,” she added, looking at Charles, “but that will happen, too.”
