‘Dr. Phil,’ ’48 Hours’ In Crossover Episodes

Typically it is primetime entertainment programs that have crossover episodes (remember when Laurence Fishburne appeared on all three CSI’s in one week???). This weekend however, CBS News and CBS TV Distribution are doing a crossover of their own.

On “Dr. Phil” today, host Phil McGraw will examine the odd tale of the Bay Area “P.I. Moms,” with special guest “48 Hours Mystery” correspondent Maureen Maher.

Then, on Saturday night, “48 Hours Mystery” will look into the case, featuring a special guest appearance by Dr. Phil McGraw.

A Sign of Things to Come? Casey Anthony Parents Break Silence to… Dr. Phil

The parents of Casey Anthony are breaking their silence after their daughter was acquitted of murdering her daughter and their granddaughter Caylee. George and Cindy Anthony won’t be speaking to NBC’s “Today” or ABC’s “Good Morning America,” however, instead they will be talking to daytime chat host Dr. Phil McGraw.

Producers of the show are open about the fact that they will be paying for the interview, although they took great strides to note that the Anthonys will not be benefiting financially from the transaction. Rather the money will go to a non-profit they founded in honor of Caylee.

The move could be a sign of things to come, as ABC moves away from licensing material in exchange for interviews, and the possibility that other TV news outlerts could follow suit.

Anderson Cooper Prepares for New Talk Show

We headed over to Time Warner Center late yesterday for the taping of an upcoming AC360 special on bullying.

The show, hosted by Anderson Cooper in front of a live studio audience, will air next Friday at 10pmET, but the taping came on the same day Cooper signed a deal to host his own syndicated daytime talk show. We tried to talk to Cooper about it after the taping, but he wasn’t talking.

The daytime show is expected to hit the airwaves next fall, not long after Oprah Winfrey signs off from her long-running syndicated daytime show.

“Bullying: No Escape; an AC 360 Special Report with PEOPLE Magazine and Cartoon Network,” includes guests Dr. Phil McGraw, Rosalind Wiseman, author of the book that inspired the movie “Mean Girls,” American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox, and families affected by the issue.

And the taping wasn’t without some technical difficulties.
