Evening Newscasts, ABC’s ‘Nightline’ Expand to One Hour to Cover Hurricane Sandy

“ABC World News,” “CBS Evening News” and “NBC Nightly News” will expand to one hour tonight covering, for the most part, Hurricane Sandy. But it’s likely the broadcasts won’t be seen in some of the nation’s largest TV markets which are in Hurricane Sandy’s cross-hairs. The local stations may continue with their own coverage or power may be out, which is already the case for hundreds of thousands of homeowners.

ABC’s “Nightline” is also expanding to one hour. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was supposed to originate in Brooklyn tonight, beginning a week of shows in the city. Tonight’s show has been canceled.

Hurricane News Dump: Anderson Cooper’s Talk Show Not Getting Renewed For Third Season

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper‘s daytime talk show “Anderson Live” will not be returning for a third season next year. Time Warner’s syndication production studio TelePictures released statements to the New York Times about the decision, citing the difficult syndication marketplace.

“We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced. While we made significant changes to the format, set and produced it live in its second season, the series will not be coming back for a third season in a marketplace that has become increasingly difficult to break through. We will continue to deliver top-quality shows throughout next summer.”

Mr. Cooper released his own statement:

“I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons, I am grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and I am indebted to the audience, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, but I have truly enjoyed it.”
