March Sadness

Here’s what caught my eye this week:

CNN: We’re Number 2! As usual, when big stories break, CNN zooms past MSNBC in the cable news race. I’m torn: As much as I want CNN to keep climbing and knock longtime champ Fox News off its perch, I’m ready for a break from the disasters, meltdowns and “limited military actions.”

Glenn Beck, leaving Fox? He may move his show online, where viewers would have to pay to see it, the New York Times reports. This is one outlandish Beck-inspired theory that I hope is true.

Chris Brown on Good Morning America. Enough already with abusive men on the morning shows.

Julian Fellowes comes stateside. The Downton Abbey scribe will pen an ABC miniseries about the Titanic. Might Lord Grantham’s doomed cousin be a character?

Ed Harris to play John McCain in HBO’s Game Change. Well, OK. That will work, too.
