PBS is going to launch a new Charlie Rose in July, the public broadcaster announced Monday. The show will air Friday nights at 8:30 and be called "Charlie Rose Weekend. " With his CBS duties, the 71-year-old Rose is going to be a very busy guy. Good for him. I think the continued appeal of Rose indicates that there is still an appetite for intelligent talk on television -- as well as a dearth of channels and networks providing it. Here's the release: PBS today announced CHARLIE ROSE WEEKEND, a new 30-minute series hosted by acclaimed journalist Charlie Rose, to air at 8:30 p.m. on PBS stations nationwide on Fridays.

I have been meaning to write a big piece about CBS News and "This Morning" for two weeks. But other assignments took precedence, so now I'll have to write a much smaller piece a day late after the network has already celebrated 100 days of its revamped and journalistically-amped 'Early Show' with Charlie Rose and Gayle King. For more than a year before Chris Licht was lured away from MSNBC to re-invent the morning show, I had been writing that the CBS morning show was dead in the water as a journalistic enterprise and ought to be taken out in an alley behind West 57th Street and put out of its misery.

It took Harry Smith about, oh, a second and a half to accept a guest shot on "Murphy Brown.""I think it's a hoot," said the "CBS This Morning" co-host, the latest big-name new celebrity -- including Connie Chung, Linda Ellerbee and Walter Cronkite -- to appear on the CBS sitcom. "They called out of the blue. It's not something I campaigned for."At first, "Murphy" "was so frighteningly familiar and real, I thought one of the producers on our staff was writing under a 'nom de plume,'" said Smith, 40. "Now it's not as spooky as it used to be. Maybe I'm used to it."

Blacklists, enemy lists, secret deals and interviewers avoiding certain questions.The talk this week about the morning TV talk shows has taken an ugly turn. In the wake of five straight appearances by President Bush on ABC's "Good Morning America," while Mr. Bush has yet to appear on "Today," the executive producer of "Today" says that "Good Morning America" has been making deals with the president and has "crossed the line of journalistic integrity.""GMA" says it did not cut a deal with Mr. Bush, and the White House seconds it. But accepting the ABC morning show's position depends on how you define the term "deal."

To hear CBS' on-air talent talk, the brave new world of morning television begins today -- with a step so huge it will render the other players obsolete, yet so obvious it's a wonder nobody thought of it before.Get local stations more involved, the network news brass has decided. Let them carry part of the show.Beginning today, "This Morning" (besides dropping CBS from the title) will split itself in half: From 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., the show will become essentially an hour-long extension of WJZ, Channel 13's hugely popular morning program with Don Scott and Marty Bass.

Robin Roberts is on the back end of a quick turnaround. The ESPN reporter had taken the 10-hour flight to Lillehammer, Norway, worked for 72 hours cutting a Winter Olympics preview and was back on a plane headed home.On her lap is a large pad. She busily fills the pages."That's not your March to-do list -- is it?" a man in the next seat asks."Yes, it is," Ms. Roberts says.The list is long. "Personal life? I remember what that was like," Ms. Roberts says. "I think I had one in college."From the outside looking in, it's easy to imagine that anyone who sits in front of a camera, covering the sports world, lives a glamorous life.
