TNT takes you inside the shadowy world of the CIA



The three week television event of the summer!

Begins This Sunday at 8/7c only on TNT



Good Morning.  It’s Tuesday, July 31, 2007, and this is your first early morning briefing.

Former late-night talk show host, Tom Snyder died Sunday after suffering complications from leukemia. He was 71. From 1973-1982 he hosted NBC’s The Tomorrow Show which aired after Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. In 1995 he returned to late night with The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder, following Letterman on CBS.  Snyder later stepped back from the show and Craig Kilborn stepped up. Known for his chain-smoking, quick-fire questions and easy-going style, Tom interviewed some of the most interesting personalities of the era from members of the rock band KISS to Charles Manson. Tom also was the parody of Saturday Night Live as Dan Aykroyd famously impersonated him. 

Tonight’s Premieres:
Bravo: Flipping Out at 10p
Spike TV: Murder at 10p
