Kathie Lee and Hoda infiltrate EW in an attempt to work themselves on to a cover: Watch!

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are the kind of crazy we here at Entertainment Weekly love, but that alone won’t earn them a cover. Still, the ladies from Today dropped by our New York offices recently to plead their case. Watch their visit unfold below. READ FULL STORY

'DWTS' finalists celebrate on 'GMA', 'sex on a stick' clip makes Maks blush: Watch!

Dancing With the Stars‘ final three couples arrived on the set of Good Morning America to streamers and confetti. That’s enough of a reason to watch the clip below. But the interview had some highlights as well: Winner Hines Ward admitted he was once so scared of dancing he skipped his prom, second runner-up Chelsea Kane happily shared the story of The Price is Right security busting her for spinning the wheel in her hot pink cha-cha dress, and runner-up Kirstie Alley said she’s happy but not quite finished with her goal going into the competition — “making my ass smaller.” READ FULL STORY

Al Roker becomes the fifth Wiggle: 'This will be one of the highlights of my career' -- WATCH!

For Today‘s Anchors Abroad series, Al Roker traveled to Australia to join The Wiggles live on onstage, dressed as grapes, and in the music video, “Thank You, Weatherman,” dressed in an orange skivvy. And yet, my favorite part of this whole stunt is when we cut back to Roker and the ladies of Today in the studio this morning after the U.S. premiere of the video and they were dancing. We’ll miss Meredith Vieira’s enthusiasm. That’s in the second clip below. Enjoy.  READ FULL STORY

Jesse James on 'Good Morning America': 'I can't worry about Sandra Bullock anymore.'

Promoting his new book, American Outlaw, Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James was on Good Morning America this morning, in clips from a taped interview with Vicki Mabrey that will air tonight on Nightline. Though he’s hard on himself, he also admits that “I can’t worry about [Bullock] anymore. I think I’ve spent a good chunk of the last five or six years worrying only about her and what she thinks and what I should do and, like, you know, controlling all my movements and everything else. I think it’s time to worry about Jesse and making sure Jesse’s happy.”

James was crucified publicly for cheating on his famous wife, right after she’d won the Oscar for The Blind Side, so it will be interesting to see how people will react to his now saying that his devotion to his ex “controlled [his] movements and everything else” while he was simultaneously undermining their marriage.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck refuses to politicize bin Laden assassination (sorry, Barbara and Joy)

The women of The View invited ABC News’ chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross on the show with them today to break down the Navy Seal assault that led to the death of Osama bin Laden. Watch the discussion below, which includes some exclusive ABC News footage from inside the mansion. It’s respectfully coherent until the very end, when, after praising President Obama, Barbara Walters says, “I would hate now to be a Republican candidate thinking of running.” Then, they start talking over one another while Ross just smiles: “As Elisabeth always says, ‘Skip the next election,'” adds Joy Behar. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, to her credit, refuses to play: “Wait a minute, I think it’s insane to politicize this event right now, and I refuse to partake in that, at all,” she says. Walters thanked her for taking that stance.  READ FULL STORY

Katie Couric stops by 'Today,' stays tight-lipped about her future plans

Yesterday, Katie Couric got a little testy when Barbara Walters pushed her to reveal what she’ll be doing after she leaves the CBS Evening News. But Couric was a lot more relaxed discussing the subject today on Today — maybe because this time, her interviewer was old pal and former colleague Matt Lauer. Even so, she didn’t reveal much about what’s next, saying only that she’s “really excited about the future” and is “in the middle of figuring it out.” Couric did, however, reveal that she’d love to have a smart, syndicated show in which she covers “a whole host of subjects” like medicine and health, controversial social issues, and politics. Hmm — possibly alongside old pal and former colleague Lauer?

Watch Couric’s appearance at her old stomping grounds below. READ FULL STORY

Chris Brown apologizes for 'GMA' meltdown

A day after erupting in his Good Morning America dressing room after host Robin Roberts asked him questions about his 2009 arrest for assaulting Rihanna, Chris Brown explained and apologized for his actions on BET’s 106 & Park. “First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions,” said Brown. “Because I’m disappointed in the way I acted.” Click below for fuzzy footage of his apology on 106 & Park.

But the singer maintains that GMA mislead him about the topics they would discuss, as he was under the impression that his appearance would strictly be about his new album, F.A.M.E. “I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show to exploit me. That’s what I thought. So I kind took it very, very hard,” said Brown. READ FULL STORY

'GMA' reports on Chris Brown's tantrum, and its invitation for him to return

Good Morning America gave a play-by-play of what happened backstage after Chris Brown, who the show says had agreed to talk about his past, became angry with Robin Roberts’ line of questioning Tuesday. Per this morning’s report, Brown “stormed backstage with his team” after his performance and, “at one point, a cooler was thrown and this window was broken in his dressing room.” He then left the building with his shirt off. He tweeted, “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bulls**t.” It’s a point that The View debated when Sherri Shepherd wondered why someone had called Chris Brown a “thug” and not Sheen. Brown also tweeted more positive messages yesterday, thanking his fans for their support.

Roberts reiterated that the show had informed Brown that they would be discussing his past, and she even mentioned it to him again right before the interview. She was “shocked like everybody else” at his behavior — which the on-air talent didn’t find out about until the show ended — because they’ve had a good relationship in the past. (That’s why she laughed when he said he wanted to be talking about his new album and not something that happened two years ago.) He had welcomed her into his home to do one of his first interviews following his 2009 arrest for assaulting Rihanna. Roberts said GMA has extended an invitation for Brown to return to the show, which he is “seriously considering.” Watch GMA‘s report below.  READ FULL STORY

Colin Firth surprises Ellen DeGeneres -- and puts underwear on his Oscar: Watch!

Colin Firth, who won the Best Actor Oscar for The King’s Speech, made a pit stop on his way to the airport Monday and surprised Ellen DeGeneres during her morning meeting. Watch the segment below, which airs on today’s show. You may recall that DeGeneres gave him a pair of formal underwear (think tuxedo design with carefully placed fringe) during a Valentine’s Day appearance on her show for him to wear to the Oscars. (She also gave him a pair in 2006 when he recounted a mortifying story about having to be rescued by his neighbors when all he was wearing was underwear and slippers.) He said he would have worn them, but they shrank in the wash. Fortunately, they were now small enough to fit his Oscar. DeGeneres couldn’t let him leave without announcing his arrival to the Warner Bros. lot with a megaphone.

Congratulations, Colin. You have now earned your own category on PopWatch. Popping by to thank us sometime might be nice. More than nice.

'Today' and always: Michelle Obama is my bemused facial expression hero

First Lady Michelle Obama joined Matt Lauer on this morning’s Today show to talk about Egypt, her husband’s prospects for reelection and how he kicked his smoking habit (equally important), school lunches, Facebook (“It’s not necessary.”), and best of all: how the President most definitely does not dye his hair. The editors went all CSI: Makeover Madness on Michelle, displaying side-by-side images of Barack with different-looking hair from the same day. SHUDDER. You can see the most riveting crime scene in weeks at the bottom of this post. Anyway, I got a little screengrabby after their 30-minute interview. It happens. After the jump, five reasons Michelle Obama should co-host Today after she leaves the White House. What? Why not? READ FULL STORY
