NBC was the first network to announce a telethon for Sandy victims
. It also gave them first dibs on the stars and hopes that the telethon can pull them out of last place. Oh sure, the telethon will be all about raising money for Sandy victims but don't think they don't want eyeballs that will stay later or come back after the telethon. It will air tomorrow night and be simulcast on every station NBC owns. Kind of like the Olympics. Matt Lauer will host and he probably jumped at the chance because now people will think he actually cares about people other than himself. NBC said other networks could join in if they would like. Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Sting are all scheduled to perform and Jimmy Fallon will also be there and will hopefully push Matt out of the way early.
