We say "most" because, as it turns out, not everyone was a participant. While FOX, CBS, ABC, CNBC and MSNBC went quiet at this time, which was the moment 11 years ago when the first plane hit the Twin Towers, NBC continued on with the 'Today' show, which just so happened to feature an interview with Kris Jenner of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians.'

Robin Williams to Return to TV for CBS Sitcom?

Could Mork be headed back to Earth?  It seems Robin Williams’ bite from the TV acting bug might have been bigger than his recent ‘Louie‘ and ‘Wilfred‘ appearances, as the legendary funnyman may have his eye on a new gig at CBS.  But what could have lured Williams back to a regular role after over 30 years off the tube, and why does the project have ‘Mad Men‘s Don Draper feeling a shiver up his spine?

NBC Lands New Michael J. Fox Series, No Fox on FOX

Well that certainly didn’t take very long, but then again the last thing you want to do is be shaky around Michael J. Fox.  Horribly bad taste aside, Michael J. Fox fans can rest easy knowing that the former ‘Family Ties’ star will officially return to TV, as NBC outbid the other major networks to land the actor’s upcoming family comedy project.  Still, it took a pretty penny on the part of the peacock to lock down the Fox, so what about the offer lured him back to NBC?
