Jennifer Lawrence Can’t Wait to Meet Al Roker

On CNN’s Oscar red carpet special, Piers Morgan has been asking his guests who they’re most excited to see. Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, Daniel Day-Lewis would top the list, but when Morgan asked Oscar-nominee Jennifer Lawrence, she only had one man on her mind:  ”I want to see Al Roker. I used to watch him every day before school.”

Al Roker?,” Morgan shot back. “Of all the people you could possibly see, Al Roker?” “It means something to me personally,” said Lawrence, “Every morning he’s happy.”

Roker is reporting from Hollywood tonight for tomorrow’s “Today” show.

Following the Lawrence interview, Morgan chatted with Dustin Hoffman, who had some nice words about his CNN show: “God bless you for what you’re saying about gun control,” said Hoffman.

A few minutes after that, Morgan grabbed his “former boss” News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch. After chatting about some of the 20th Century Fox-nominated movies, Morgan couldn’t resist asking: “How do you feel about CNN doing so well against Fox at the moment?”

“I think we’re okay, I think we’ll survive,” Murdoch laughed. “I think you probably will,” said Morgan.

Monday Night Raw Adding A 30-Minute Pre-Show?

WWE is reportedly close to adding a 30-minute pre-show to Monday Night Raw likely starting this fall, according to Justin LaBar of Wrestlezone.com:

“After speaking with sources I have learned that there is a plan to add a pre-show to RAW from 8:30-9pm EST. It would be a countdown show to RAW that would take place at the arena where RAW is being held each week. The production would include Superstar interviews, fan interaction and obviously further promoting the major stories going on.”

According to LaBar, the show would have the feel of ESPN’s College Gameday. Sounds like a win-win for USA and the WWE as Monday Night Raw has been a staple for the network for nearly 20 years now.
