WASHINGTON - President Obama teased Ellen DeGeneres about the selfie she took at the Oscars and confessed to leaving his socks and shoes lying around while the first lady is out of town, but before the end of his Thursday appearance on her talk show, he got DeGeneres to put in a plug for the Affordable Care Act. That's Obama's deal with popular media these days as the president enlists help to boost healthcare sign-up numbers before the March 31...

Could the second time be the charm? "The Queen Latifah Show," the freshman syndicated talker from Sony Pictures Television, has been renewed for a second season on CBS stations. At a time when just about everyone is entering the daytime talk show arena, the offering featuring the singer-actress has managed to hold its own amid the competitive clutter. It debuted last September to a strong 1.7 rating -- putting it just behind Katie Couric's talk show (which will end its run this summer after two seasons)

The original political shout-fest is coming back. CNN said "Crossfire," which was a staple of the cable news channel for over 20 years before being canceled in 2005, will return to its schedule this fall. “Few programs in the history of CNN have had the kind of impact on political discourse that 'Crossfire' did - it was a terrific program then, and we believe the time is right to bring it back and do it again,” said CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker in a statement. “We look forward to the opportunity to host passionate conversation from all sides of the political spectrum.

MSNBC has ended Alec Baldwin's short-lived interview program, two weeks after the actor's outburst at a photographer that included an anti-gay slur. The NBCUniversal-owned cable channel confirmed Tuesday that the network and Baldwin had mutually agreed to end "Up Late," which had also suffered low ratings since its October debut. “We are jointly confirming that 'Up Late' will not continue on MSNBC,'" Baldwin and MSNBC said in a joint statement. MSNBC added: “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best.” PHOTOS: Talk show hosts who didn't make the cut Earlier this month, the cable channel suspended the show for two weeks following Baldwin's caught-on-camera tirade in New York City.

MTV announced Saturday it plans to stay in the hirsute game, renewing "Teen Wolf" for a fourth season and pairing it with a "Wolf"-related talk show. The series will return in 2014 with 12 episodes. And taking a cue from older cohorts like AMC and FX with postmortem after-shows (either on TV or on the Web), MTV will debut the new talk show "Wolf Watch," set to air weekly after each episode of "Teen Wolf. " The announcements come as its devoted fans gather at New York Comic-Con. PHOTOS: New York Comic-Con 2013 That the network is beefing up the show's presence is hardly one to howl over.

Alec Baldwin has already demonstrated his interviewing ability on public radio and now he's taking it back to TV with a new weekly talk show on MSNBC. Baldwin will host "Up Late w/ Alec Baldwin" on Friday nights on the cable news channel starting in October, the network announced Thursday. The show is expected to cover culture and current events, much the same way Baldwin has covered those topics in his radio show and podcast, "Here's the Thing," which has aired on public radio in New York since 2011.

Some may wonder why Alec Baldwin is doing a talk show. Others may be puzzled why it's apparently set in a steakhouse.  At any rate, "Up Late with Alec Baldwin" premiered at 10 p.m. Friday with about 654,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. (Yes, evidently 10 p.m. qualifies as "up late" for MSNBC's audience.)  That performance wasn't too bad for a Friday night, but it was nowhere near the 1.5 million that showed up for Sean Hannity's program on Fox News Channel. However, building a talk show following takes time.  PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments The critics weren't in a forgiving mood.

Thursday night is the end for "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. " After 22 years, the 63-year-old host is leaving NBC's legendary late-night talk show and handing over the reins to Jimmy Fallon. The Times recently spoke with Leno backstage at "Tonight" about his departure, his thoughts on comedy and the Conan O'Brien fiasco of four years ago, and what he'll do next. Here are some excerpts from the conversation: You've said that leaving "Tonight" now feels "about right. " But I can't imagine you're happy.

NBC might turn left -- way left -- for its next late-night host: Alec Baldwin. The former "30 Rock" star and outspoken liberal is in talks for a show that would most likely air in the 1:35 a.m. slot now occupied by Carson Daly, according to a report in the New York Times. Baldwin would make an unusual pick, as he's much more political and polarizing than your usual late-night comedy star. No matter which way Jay Leno and David Letterman lean in the voting booth, on their shows they take swipes at both sides.
