NBC Skips 9/11 “Moment of Silence” for Kardashian Interview

As if we needed another reason to hate the Kardashians...

At 8:46 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, most national news outlets took a break from their regular programming to air a special "moment of silence" from New York City and Washington D.C. to honor the victims of 9/11.

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.'

Fall TV 2011: CBS Cancels ‘$#*! My Dad Says’; NBC Unveils Fall Schedule

Well, $#*!.

CBS announced Sunday that is pulling the plug on the William Shatner vehicle '$#*! My Dad Says' after just one season.

The sitcom, which was based on the popular Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, debuted to strong ratings last fall, but stumbled as the season progressed. Critics' reviews, meanwhile, were less than kind.

Also getting the axe: the legal drama 'The Defenders' and the new comedy 'Mad Love,' co-starring Judy Greer.

Matt Lauer to Leave ‘Today’?

Is NBC's long running morning news program 'Today' about to get a major facelift?

Over the past couple of days, news has circulated that hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira plan to leave the show when their contracts expire. Lauer in particular was at the center of Internet rumors today after reports claimed he had informed NBC executives of his departure, which would be in Dec. 2012.

However, NBC has since denied the reports, saying, "There seems to be an awful lot of speculation around news anchors these days, and it's not our practice to comment on any of it. Matt Lauer has a long-term contract with NBC News and TODAY."
