After the coffee. Before trying to make a clone to do my grunt work.
The Skinny: Was excited to see "Nashville" back, but did we really need a Katie Couric cameo? It felt forced and didn't add much to the plot. It's a busy Thursday morning as CNN unveiled its new morning show and FX detailed plans for a new sister channel. Also, a big change at Hearst Corp. and a review of the new "G.I. Joe" movie.
Daily Dose: Mornings are a priority for new CNN chief Jeff Zucker and Thursday he unveiled his plans for a show he hopes will woo viewers. As expected, Chris Cuomo will host and he will be joined by CNN's congressional correspondent, Kate Bolduan, who will serve as co-host. Also on board is "KTLA Morning News" co-host Michaela Pereira, who will be the news anchor. Veteran producer Jim Murphy, who spent many years at "Good Morning America," will serve as senior executive producer and Matt Frucci, another GMA vet, will be executive producer. All the New York-based show needs now is a title.
Adding an X. News Corp.'s cable channel FX unveiled plans for a sister channel, FXX. No, that doesn't mean X-rated versions of "Sons of Anarchy." The network, which will launch in September, will be aimed at the age 18-to-34 demographic with a heavy focus on comedy. FX is also moving two of its comedies -- "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "The League" -- to FXX. Details from the Los Angeles Times.
