It was first announced in January...Cosby, 77, has a long history with NBC, including his seminal "The Cosby Show," which became a smash hit 30 years ago and helped rescue a network then at the bottom of the ratings. It ran for eight seasons.

Note to self – if you’re nice to Noah Wyle, he’ll be nice to you. Case in point, he told People that the last thing he lost was his driver’s license. He apparently lost it on the streets of New York, and some kind soul was gracious enough to return it. The stranger – who looked on the Internet to track down his management company – got it back to him in four hours. He was so moved that he sent the woman flowers. All together now…awww!


Yahoo! Screen Brings Live Music Home - Can’t get out to see your favorite band in concert?

Live channel billing it as 365 concerts in 365 days..DMB will kick things off tomorrow with “A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band,” broadcast from their gig at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.   Also on the schedule is Timberlake’s first-ever concert in Reykjavik, Iceland, a date on KISS’ 40th Anniversary tour, as well as concerts from John Legend, Usher, Linkin Park, the Gaslight Anthem, The Fray, Common, OneRepublic, Daughtry, Gavin DeGraw, Panic! At the Disco and many others...And fans won’t only experience the concert. Yahoo! Live promises behind the scenes footage, interviews and several other special features. That certainly sounds better than sitting in the cheap seats!


Justin Timberlake Joined by Joey Fatone at NYC concert - Justin Timberlake sure knows how to wow a crowd. While most stars would phone-in a corporate sponsored event, J.T. is certainly not most stars. In case you missed it, Justin played a Citi/Aadvantage Master Card-sponsored concert in New York City Thursday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom, a much smaller venue than the arenas he’s currently hitting on his world tour. And Justin sure pulled out all the stops, performing a two-hour hits-filled concert that even included some welcome surprises...He even treated the audience to a mini *NSYNC reunion. Fans couldn’t help but notice Joey Fatone enjoying the show from the VIP box on the side for most of the evening. But it was during Justin’s “Suit & Tie” that the crowd went wild because unbeknownst to even Justin, Joey danced out on stage and proceeded to get his groove on with J.T.’s back up band the Tennessee Kids. Once Justin noticed him he shouted, “Let’s hear it for the Fat One…”

Ryan Gosling Retiring? - Granted, we haven't seen a lot of him lately, but Ryan Gosling being a dad might mean he's done with the big screen for good. News broke last week that Gosling is expecting a baby with girlfriend Eva Mendes and while they've both stayed mum on the subject, an old interview is speaking volumes...Back in 2011, Gosling told British paper "The Times" he doesn't see himself as a working dad.  "I'm giving as much to it as a marriage," the actor said of his film career, according to "Us Weekly." "I'd like to be making babies but I'm not, so I'm making movies."..."When someone comes along [to make babies with] I don't think I'll be able to do both and I'm fine with that," Gosling continued. "I'll make movies until I make babies. I have no idea when the handover will happen." The time is apparently upon us.

Sharon Stone is Available for Dating - Hear ye, hear ye…Sharon Stone is now back available to date. What does that mean? According to Us Weekly, now that her three kids – 14-year-old Roan, nine-year-old Laird, and eight-year-old Quinn – are older, the 56-year-old stunner is ready for love...The “Basic Instinct” star told “Extra’s” Mario Lopez, “What’s happened is my kids have reached the age where I feel comfortable to date. I didn’t want to date when they were little. Who needs a bunch of people running in and out of their lives?”...Now that Stone is back on the market, what can a potential suitor look forward to? For one, a stunning body that she showed off for Italian “GQ” magazine a couple of months ago. They’ll also get a woman who’s comfortable in her skin. She said, “There was a point in my 40s where I went into the bathroom with a bottle of wine, locked the door, and said, ‘I’m not coming out until I can totally accept the way I look right now.”


North Korea Still Super Mad About "The Interview" - The beef between North Korea and the upcoming Seth Rogen/James Franco movie is growing. Reuters is reporting North Korea's U.N. Ambassador Ja Song Nam wrote a letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon claiming "The Interview" is an “undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war.”...The letter doesn't actually name the upcoming movie, but says the movie in question “involves insulting and assassinating the supreme leadership.” If you haven't been following the drama, that's precisely what "The Interview" is about. Seth Rogen and James Franco play a TV anchor and producer who manage to get an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The CIA then hire the two to assassinate the leader...This letter comes a few weeks after a North Korean representative called the movie "an act of war" and threatened a "resolute and merciless" response aimed at the United States if the movie wasn't banned.


Don Cheadle Meets Fundraising Goal - Add Don Cheadle to the list of a-listers who used crowd funding to make movies.

With 11-hours to go, he's already raised over $336-thousand from almost two-thousand donors...According to USA Today, the movie is set in 1979 New York as the musician was ending his five-year "silent period" out of the public eye and his relationship with "Rolling Stone" reporter David Brill, played by Ewan McGregor. "Miles Ahead" has already started filming in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Joy and Rosie Fire Back At Hasselbeck - If there are two women you don't want to mess with, it's Joy Behar and Rosie O'Donnell. We told you about Elisabeth Hasselbeck's rant on "Fox & Friends" about O'Donnell potentially coming back to "The View," where she claims Rosie "spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there."...According to eOnline, current "View" cohost Joy Behar snapped back at Hasselbeck, she thought the comments hit "below the belt," especially about spitting in the face of the military, bringing up the fact that O'Donnell's oldest son is in military school...O'Donnell kept her response to Twitter. When a follower brought up O'Donnell being at Barbara Walters' farewell show, the actress responded the Hasselbeck "hid in her dressing room" then asked for a selfie when the two saw each other....Better get used to the idea of Rosie back on "The View." The show's official Twitter announced O'Donnell is definitely coming back for season 18.


Naya Rivera Returns for "Glee's" Final Season - After the way things ended last season with Naya Rivera and “Glee,” it was truly anyone’s guess as to whether the girl also known as Santana Lopez would make it back for the show’s final season. Fortunately, it’s been confirmed that all of your favorite characters will be back at McKinley High to say goodbye next season...So the real question on everyone’s mind is how did “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy get Rivera to agree to work with Lea Michele again. A source told Hollywood Life that he not only gave the ladies time to cool off, he also invoked the name of the late Cory Monteith. According to the insider, “Ryan didn’t want the drama to overshadow the final year of the show and they agreed. [He] played the ‘Do it for the cast’ and ‘Do it for Cory‘ card and that is what worked and got Naya back in the fold.”...Will Naya and Lea share screen time? The insider said, “They will not share many scenes together but it will be impossible to totally go cold turkey. They will work together again and they both promised they would be professional when that time comes.”
