Matt Lauer's high-profile sit-down with the Paula Deen gave "Today" its first outright win over its ABC competition, "Good Morning America" in nearly eight months Discovery Channel is angling to get a little more mileage from Skywire Live. The live telecast of Nik Wallenda crossing the Grand Canyon on a tightrope, which brought in record ratings for the cable network, will get a follow-up special: Nik Talks the Walk. The interview special will also include the daredevil's commentary on all 22 minutes and 54 seconds of his big stunt. Edie Falco, James Gandolfini's wife on "The Sopranos" says he "was a man of tremendous depth and sensitivity". " I consider myself very lucky to have spent 10 years as his close colleague," said Falco. less
