One more time

Will Ferrell will make his Broadway debut in January, Variety reports.

He'll appear in the new solo comedy You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush, directed by Adam McKay, the writer-director of such Ferrell flicks as Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

The plot of the show remains sketchy, but the title and timing suggest a Bush caricature and plenty of topical humor.

Production begins previews on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, ahead of a Feb. 1 opening at the Cort Theater. The limited engagement is scheduled to close March 15.

Ready for prime time

This year, the Grammys will broadcast at least six nominee categories in prime time for the first time.

The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!! - Countdown to Music's Biggest Night will air Dec. 3 on CBS. Other nominees will be announced that day off the air.
