Tamron Hall Has Never Seen ‘Seinfeld,’ or ‘The Office,’ or ‘Cheers’

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall, sitting in on the ‘Today” show as Natalie Morales reported from Vatican City, admitted to being a novice when it comes to popular TV sitcoms… like all of them. After Willie Geist rattled off a list put together by Vulture of some of the most watched TV shows of the last 30 years, Hall said she’d only seen two of them: “Sex and the City” and “30 Rock.” No “Seinfeld,” or “The Office,” or “Cheers,” or the “Simpsons.” Al Roker asked, “Are you American?” Hall pointed out many classic 70s sitcoms like “Laverne & Shirley” “Happy Days” and “What’s Happening?” were not on the list.

Geist, Roker, Hall and E! host Jason Kennedy also talked about Hall’s “Newsnation” theme song, composed by Prince, which debuted on her MSNBC show Monday. Hall revealed that it will only be her theme song for 6 months at which point Prince takes back full rights.

Whitney Houston Funeral Getting Extensive Cable Coverage

The funeral for Whitney Houston will take place on Saturday in Newark, New Jersey, and while it is private, cable news is planning extensive coverage.

The funeral will be streamed online at the AP’s livestream page, so fans can bypass cable news if they so choose. In addition, users can expect to watch the AP stream on many news sites including FoxNews.com and CNN.com (even though CNN does not subscribe to AP content, the AP’s coverage is pool coverage, so CNN can use it). Those that do turn on their TV’s will have a number of options.

CNN seems to have the most comprehensive coverage lined up, with Piers Morgan, Don Lemon and Soledad O’Brien anchoring from 11:30 AM-2 PM. Saturday and Sunday evening Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Randi Kaye will host primetime specials looking at Houston’s life.

Fox News will be covering the funeral live from 11:30 AM-2PM, with Jon Scott and Uma Pemmaraju anchoring in New York. Kelly Wright will report from outside the church in Newark.
