Fox Leg Crossings. ‘It’s a Slow Monday’

InsideCableNews spotted this interesting observation from CNN anchor Carol Costello who posted this to her Facebook page a few hours ago:

What do you think? Here’s a screengrab from this morning’s “Fox & Friends First,” today hosted by (birthday girl) Patti Ann Browne and Heather Childers.

2012 TVNewser March Madness Bracket Challenge: The Winner Is…

With Kentucky’s 67-59 win over Kansas last night, March Madness has officially come to an end. That also means that it is time to declare a winner in TVNewser’s 2012 March Madness bracket challenge.

Your 2012 TVNewser bracket challenge winner is…

Fox Business Network stocks editor Liz MacDonald!

“It was great fun going up against really tough competition,” MacDonald says. “I am honored and thrilled to be this year’s champion.”

It was a close match this year, with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and Kyra Phillips very close behind MacDonald in the standings. This is the second straight year that a competitor for one of the business news networks won. Last year’s winner was Bloomberg TV’s Dominic Chu. Chu also had a good showing this year, placing ninth.

In last place, tragically, was your humble TVNewser editor, who clearly needs to reevaluate his college basketball picking skills. My strategy of picking teams who had cool mascots (Blue Devils? Awesome!) may not have been the most sound.

A big “Thank You!” to all of this year’s participants.

The final standings are below.

Here is your 2012 TVNewser March Madness lineup:

Team Bloomberg TV:

Returning champ: Dominic Chu, markets reporter, Bloomberg TV

Cory Johnson, editor-at-large, Bloomberg TV

Team Fox News/Fox Business Network:

Dr. Sanjay Gupta and ‘Wolfman’

After his book part last night — which Alex attended and writes up here — CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta is making the rounds today to promote “Monday Mornings,” including an appearance on a competing network.

“He finally found himself on the right network,” joked Brian Kilmeade on Fox & Friends. Toward the end of the interview Kilmeade asked, “If you had a choice of hanging out with Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitzer, who would you choose?”

Kilmeade gave him a chance to duck the question, but Gupta shot back: “Wolfman. Every single time.” Gupta is appearing on Cooper’s syndicated show Thursday and was on with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and Carol Costello this morning.

The “Fox and Friends” trio also asked Gupta about his “60 Minutes” report Sunday on Khan Academy. Video after the jump…

Networks, Cablers Plan Coverage of the Final Launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program

Tomorrow at 11:25 AM ET, the Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to launch, the final launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program, which first sent craft into orbit in 1981. There is a strong chance that weather could delay the launch, but that isn’t stopping the broadcast networks and cable news organizations from planning extensive coverage to mark the occasion.

NBC News is planning a special report to be anchored by Brian Williams in New York. Jay Barbree, the only journalist to cover every manned space mission, will “call” the launch from Cape Canaveral.

ABC News is planning a special report to be anchored by “Good Morning America” news anchor Josh Elliott in New York. Matt Gutman will be on the scene in Florida for the network.

CBS News is sending “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley to Cape Canaveral, where he will anchor a special report as well as that evening’s broadcast.
