    Hope For Haiti Now on Every Major Network

    Already have seen Ben Stiller, Muhammad Ali, Justin Timberlake, Sheryl Crowe, Taylor Swift and others.

    Very heartwarming.

    It was an easy choice for NBC. Only way to match the competition in the ratings... air the same thing.

    It's a good cause, but their main immediate problem is not supplies, but the lack of infrastructure to get those supplies where they need to be. This will help to rebuild if corruption doesn't keep it from the people who need it.

    I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, but hearing her perform an excellent Better Than Ezra b-side was pretty cool. There have been quite a few good covers. Shakira butchering The Pretenders was painful.

    It's been quite a showing by all sorts of celebrities thus far.

    Just because they're airing the same thing doesn't mean people are watching their channel.

    Guess it just me but I feel like hanging myself after watching 2 hours of that. The music made me feel like I was at a funeral. Just because you're raising money for a tragic event like this doesn't mean that you can't rock. Hell I heard Larry King had Snoop Dog

    Nothing like entertainers pimping themselves out to get in on free publicity.

    Some of them actually THINK they're doing good, but this is all about keeping your image current. Agents everywhere were popping Tums, hoping "their" star gets a decent billing, in an effort to exploit other peoples' pain and suffering.

    Did you know that there actually are a small number of celebs who quietly do charity work? Harrison Ford, for instance, donates scads of time and money to do search and rescue work with his aircraft. Oh, and risks his precious hide, to boot.
