TV Talk: 30 Rock to Go Live, Mary Hart to Leave

Mary Hart-30 Rock will be throwing in a Saturday Night Live-esque twist this fall. On October 14, actors from the NBC comedy will do two live primetime tapings—one for each coast.

-Mary Hart has announced that she will leave Entertainment Tonight after completing her 30th year with the program. It’s believed Lara Spencer, host of The Insider, will eventually take over her spot.

-You knew she couldn’t keep away for long. Former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell will once again return to daytime with a new show next year. The program will air on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN.

-Can’t think of a better show title for Cougar Town? Well, neither can the producers. Although the comedy is considered to be an ensemble program, the ABC series will be keeping its name.

-Actor Jeff Goldblum has decided to leave Law & Order: Criminal Intent after two years with the program. “Uncertainty” about the show’s future reportedly played a part in his decision.
