STEPHEN COLBERT GUESTS ON LETTERMAN'S SHOW

NEW YORK (AP) -- It was old meets new on Letterman last night. Stephen Colbert (kohl-BAYR'), who will be taking over for the retiring David Letterman, was a guest on the "Late Show." It was Colbert's first appearance since CBS made the announcement. Colbert says he has a simple plan for his new job -- he's going to do whatever Dave does. That got a laugh from Letterman and the audience. Colbert revealed he was offered an internship decades ago on Letterman's old NBC show. Colbert says he didn't take it because the job didn't pay and New York is an expensive city. Colbert's new gig will start sometime next year.

DANI MOZ AND TJ WILKINS OUT ON "THE VOICE"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Last night could have been a disaster for Team Shakira on "The Voice." Two of her three singers were in the bottom three and faced elimination.

AARON SORKIN APOLOGIZES FOR "THE NEWSROOM"

NEW YORK (AP) -- Aaron Sorkin wishes he could have a do-over with "The Newsroom." He told an audience at the Tribeca Film Festival, "you and I got off on the wrong foot." He says "I apologize and I'd like to start over." Sorkin says he wasn't trying to teach journalists how to do their jobs. He says it was "a terrible misunderstanding." Sorkin will get a chance to do things differently in the third and final season.

COURTENEY COX - NO "FRIENDS" REUNION

NEW YORK (AP) -- Not that you were really expecting it, but Courteney Cox says there's no chance of a "Friends" TV reunion. Cox told David Letterman that she can't even get them all together for dinner. And you can forget a "Friends" movie, too. Cox points out that the show took place mostly in their apartments, so it would be hard to expand that into a movie.
