Can Megyn Kelly Revitalize ‘Today’ Show’s 3rd Hour?
Nearly 10 months after NBC lured Megyn Kelly from Fox News with great fanfare — and a reported $15 million-plus paycheck — the veteran primetime cable host is set to launch her new morning show this Monday, taking over the 9 a.m. hour of “Today.” Though the first two hours of “Today” is a demo ratings-dominating cash cow — ABC’s “Good Morning America” claims more total viewers — the third hour faces more, and more-varied, competition. It also has a bit of an identity issue — even Hour 4 is well known for the off-script and oft-buzzed antics of hosts »

‘Scandal’ Season 7: Olivia Has Absolute Power, but Will it Corrupt Her Absolutely?
At the end of the sixth season of “Scandal,” Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) was in the power seat as the chief of staff to the first female president (Bellamy Young’s Mellie) and the new head of B613. And when the seventh and final season starts, Olivia is enjoying wielding her power, even though it may mean pushing aside those who have been closest to her.
“Olivia’s sitting in the highest seat,” said Washington during a set visit of which Variety was a part. “Anything that jeopardizes her ability to show up for the republic is potentially a problem. Relationships are not the most important thing right now, unless that relationship serves and enhances her ability to wield her power in the ways that she needs to.”
Olivia once wore a white hat as she fought to serve her clients, many of whom had been wronged by politicians or the system in general. Now »
