Conan O’Brien Will Do a Late-Night Show on TBS

Posted: 08:01 PM ET

WATCH LARRY KING LIVE TONIGHT TO GET THE LATEST ON CONAN'S RETURN TO LATE NIGHT!

Via NYTimes.com

In a move that qualifies as a shocker, Conan O’Brien has made a deal to return to television in a new late-night show on cable — not network — television.

The former “Tonight Show” host has agreed to start a new show on TBS, the comedy-oriented cable channel in the Turner network lineup. The show will start in November and play at 11 p.m. four nights a week (Monday through Thursday), teamed with that network’s other late-night show, hosted by George Lopez. That show, now at 11, will slide to midnight.

The news comes as a stunner because Mr. O’Brien was known to be in talks with the Fox network, and most predictions had him moving there in September or January.

TBS was not known to be in the picture. But Mr. O’Brien’s representatives had been quietly talking with that cable network as issues continued to arise with the potential Fox deal.

The move will surely be closely examined for its implications for the future of broadcast vs. cable television, with one of the biggest stars of recent years in network television abandoning that side for cable.

In a release accompanying the announcement Mr. O’Brien said: “In three months I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.”

Mr. O’Brien begins his live concert tour in Eugene, Ore.,  Monday night.

In the statement, Steve Koonin, the president of Turner Entertainment Networks, emphasized the change from network to cable.

“For decades, late-night TV has been dominated by broadcast television,” Mr. Koonin said.  “Now, with a young audience and a growing late-night lineup, TBS is set to be the choice of comedy fans for years to come.”

Report: Arrest Imminent for Former 'Survivor' Producer

Posted: 07:00 PM ET

TONIGHT DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER WEIGHS IN ON THE 'SURVIVOR' MURDER CASE!

Via People.com

Mexican authorities are close to arresting reality TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman in the case of his wife Monica's death, according to a report.

Citing inconsistencies in his account of the events of last week, officials say his arrest could be imminent, ABC News reports.

Monica Beresford-Redman was found dead in the sewer of a Cancun resort on Thursday, the victim of a blow to the skull. Her husband, an Emmy-nominated former producer of Survivor and Pimp My Ride, was soon eyed as the main suspect – he was detained, then released but told to remain in the country while the investigation continued.

Reports have suggested the couple were having marital problems and were heard arguing in their hotel room before her disappearance.

Standing Up For Phoebe

Posted: 02:58 PM ET

By Kevin Cullen
via Boston.com

So, finally, an adult in authority in South Hadley stepped up for Phoebe Prince.

Her name is Betsy Scheibel. She is the district attorney in that part of Western Massachusetts, and she also happens to live in South Hadley. She grew up there, went to college at Mount Holyoke, just off the town green, and has restored some faith in the idea that somebody in a position of power there gets it.

In the days and weeks after Jan. 14, when 15-year-old Phoebe Prince hanged herself in a closet in her family’s apartment on Newton Street, the students who bullied her her death continued to walk the halls of South Hadley High as if nothing had happened. And the people who ran the schools seemed fine with that.

When this was pointed out, there were some people in South Hadley who got awfully defensive. “Blaming the victim’’ is a polite way to describe what they were saying about Phoebe. Character assassination is another.

Bullied to Death?

Posted: 05:55 PM ET

NOTE: WE WILL BE DISCUSSING THE PHOEBE PRINCE CASE TONIGHT ON LKL.

By Kevin Cullen
via Boston.com

Like a lot of kids her age, Phoebe Prince was a swan, always beautiful and sometimes awkward.

Last fall, she moved from Ireland into western Massachusetts, a new town, a new high school, a new country, a new culture. She was 15, when all that matters is being liked and wearing the right clothes and just fitting in.

She was a freshman and she had a brief fling with a senior, a football player, and for this she became the target of the Mean Girls, who decided then and there that Phoebe didn’t know her place and that Phoebe would pay.

Kids can be mean, but the Mean Girls took it to another level, according to students and parents. They followed Phoebe around, calling her a slut. When they wanted to be more specific, they called her an Irish slut.

The name-calling, the stalking, the intimidation was relentless.

Ten days ago, Phoebe was walking home from school when one of the Mean Girls drove by in a car. An insult and an energy drink can came flying out the car window in Phoebe’s direction.

Phoebe kept walking, past the abuse, past the can, past the white picket fence, into her house. Then she walked into a closet and hanged herself. Her 12-year-old sister found her.

A Time for Contrition

Posted: 09:00 PM ET

WHAT DO THE ALLEGED VICTIMS THINK ABOUT THE VATICAN'S RESPONSE? WATCH LARRY KING LIVE TUESDAY TO FIND OUT!!

Via NYTimes.com

By ROSS DOUTHAT
During a frustrating argument with a Roman Catholic cardinal, Napoleon Bonaparte supposedly burst out: “Your eminence, are you not aware that I have the power to destroy the Catholic Church?” The cardinal, the anecdote goes, responded ruefully: “Your majesty, we, the Catholic clergy, have done our best to destroy the church for the last 1,800 years. We have not succeeded, and neither will you.”

Two centuries later, the clergy has taken another shot at it. What the American and Irish churches have endured in the last decade and what German Catholics find themselves enduring today is all part of the same grim story: the exposure, years after the fact, of an appalling period in which the Catholic hierarchy responded to an explosion of priestly sex abuse with cover-ups, evasions and criminal negligence.

Now the scandal has touched the pope himself. There are two charges against Benedict XVI: first, that he allowed a pedophile priest to return to ministry while archbishop of Munich in 1980; and second, that as head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in the 1990s, he failed to defrock a Wisconsin priest who had abused deaf children 30 years before.

The second charge seems unfair. The case was finally forwarded to the Vatican by the archbishop of Milwaukee, Rembert Weakland, more than 20 years after the last allegation of abuse. With the approval of then-Cardinal Ratzinger’s deputy, the statute of limitations was waived and a canonical trial ordered. It was only suspended because the priest was terminally ill; indeed, pretrial proceedings were halted just before he died.

But the first charge is more serious. The Vatican insists that the crucial decision was made without the future pope’s knowledge, but the paper trail suggests that he could have been in the loop. At best, then-Archbishop Ratzinger was negligent. At worst, he enabled further abuse.

For those of us who admire the pope, either possibility is distressing, but neither should come as a great surprise. The lesson of the American experience, now exhaustively documented, is that almost everyone was complicit in the scandal. From diocese to diocese, the same cover-ups and gross errors of judgment repeated themselves regardless of who found themselves in charge. Neither theology nor geography mattered: the worst offenders were Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston and Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles — a conservative and a liberal, on opposite ends of the country.

Stupak's Opponent Becomes Instant Hero

Posted: 05:47 PM ET

NOTE: Rep. Bart Stupak will be our guest tonight on LKL.

By Alex Pappas
via DailyCaller.com

Dr. Dan Benishek was flipping the channels between the Michigan State basketball game and Fox News last night when the phone calls started coming through.

The Republican doctor running for a seat in Congress representing Michigan’s Upper Peninsula area had just become a Tea Party hero — and he wasn’t prepared. More than $20,000 in campaign donations poured in Sunday night alone. Benishek’s secret? He’s running against Bart Stupak, the eight-term Democrat whose last-minute deal allowed President Obama’s health-care legislation to pass.

"It’s hard to sort it all out, to tell you the truth, because I’m not a pro at this,” Benishek told The Daily Caller. “I’m just a regular person.”

Benishek, who has never run for office, doesn’t have a campaign Web site (for now, a Facebook page that has increased from 700 to 14,000 followers will do) or staff for that matter (his wife is taking press calls while he searches for a campaign manager). But by late last night, the RNC had stepped in and set up a PayPal account for him so he could raise money online.
