All Di, all day
After a year of hype and preparation, the long-awaited “Concert for Diana,” which celebrates what would have been the 46th birthday of the late Princess of Wales, finally takes place on Sunday with an all-star lineup.
While NBC will air the broadcast Sunday evening at 8, VH1 music fans will be able to enjoy the concert through a variety of VH1 platforms, the network said.
The six-hour concert will be broadcast live in its entirety (beginning at 11 a.m.) on VH1, streamed live on VH1.com and simulcast live in HDTV on MHD: Music High-Definition, MTV Network’s high-definition music channel. It will also be telecast on a one-hour delay on VH1 Classic starting at noon and be available for on-demand viewing at VH1.com after the event.
Taking the stage at London’s Wembly Stadium: Fergie, Elton John, Duran Duran, Bryan Ferry, Lily Allen, Kanye West, Rod Stewart, Natasha Bedingfield, Nelly Furtado, P. Diddy, Tom Jones, Take That, Will Young, former Supertramp frontman Roger Hodgson, the Feeling, James Morrison, Orson and Status Quo, the English National Ballet, and Joss Stone.
NBC’s 8 p.m. prime-time special will be hosted by “Today” co-anchor Matt Lauer, who interviewed Diana’s sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, this month on a special edition of “Dateline NBC.” The royal brothers are the masterminds behind the concert, which will feature many of Diana’s favorite artists. Proceeds from the concert will benefit children and AIDS victims, two causes that were dear to her heart, the brothers said.
Fox bringing back 'Dad'
Already set on Fox’s Sunday schedule for the 2007-08 season, the renewal will actually carry “American Dad” through to the 2008-09 season, which would be its fourth.
The extended order would bring the show’s overall episode count to 84.
In its second season, the Seth MacFarlane-created comedy averaged just under 7.4 million viewers per week. Less important than its overall viewership, though, is the fact that “American Dad” regularly led its time period among adults 18-34 and teens and controlled a number of key male demographics. For the season, “American Dad” ranked as TV’s No. 5 show among viewers 12-17.
“American Dad” focuses on the misadventures of Stan Smith, a CIA agent with a mixed up family that includes a son, daughter and wife, as well as a martini-swilling alien and a German-speaking goldfish.
