PBS’ Charlie Rose in talks for CBS‘ ‘Early Show’

PBS late-night interviewer Charlie Rose may soon be a morning person, the Associated Press reports.

Mr. Rose acknowledged in an interview with Newsweek on Monday that he’s talked with CBS News about being a host on “The Early Show,” the two-hour competitor to NBC’s “Today” show and “Good Morning America” on ABC.

Mr. Rose said he’s intrigued that CBS wants to do its show differently, that it realizes success lies in not imitating competitors. “The Early Show” has taken a serious turn lately, emphasizing more political and international news.

CBS News declined to comment on speculation about changes to its morning show.

Netflix stock tumbles as subscribers flee service

Netflix shares tanked Tuesday, losing more than a third of their value, after the video service revealed it continued to lose subscribers amid a backlash against a new pricing scheme.

Netflix shares were down 35 percent to $77.29 at noon on the Nasdaq stock exchange in New York.

The sell-off came after Netflix, which has seen a spate of management bungles in recent months, said late Monday it had lost 810,000 US subscribers in the third quarter, leaving it with 23.8 million subscribers.

Netflix said net profit rose 65 percent to $62 million in the third quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago while revenue was up 49 percent to $822 million.

While revenue and earnings per share came in better than expected by Wall Street analysts it was the loss of subscribers that sent Netflix shares tumbling. Netflix shares hit a high of $304.79 on July 13.
