'Timeless' movie to air on NBC Dec. 20

NBC said it will air its series-capping Timeless movie on Dec. 20.

"Get the Lifeboat ready and grab your stash of #Chocodiles! We're going to December 20th 8/7c on NBC! #Timeless," the show's Twitter feed said.

The post also included the message, "It's time to get Rufus back!"

Co-starring Matt Lanter, Abigail Spencer, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit, the show debuted in 2016 and followed the fictional Lifeboat crew of time travelers whose adventures highlight history's unsung heroes, particularly women and people of color.

Various episodes have explored World War II, Watergate, the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, the French and Indian War, organized crime and the Apollo 11 space mission.

NBC canceled the show twice, then revived it both times due to the overwhelming support from fans. The network said in July it would bring the cast back for one more, 2-hour adventure to air in December, but the exact date was not announced until Friday.

Lanter told UPI last month that he hadn't read the script yet for the Timeless movie, but he thought it would likely have a Christmas theme and feature his soldier character Wyatt and Spencer's college professor Lucy leading their team back in time to save Barrett's computer programmer-pilot Rufus, who was in great peril at the end of Season 2.

Which NBC talk show anchor won't be returning to the 'Today' show?

Jenna Dewan files for divorce from Channing Tatum

Former World of Dance host Jenna Dewan filed for divorce from actor Channing Tatum in Los Angeles Friday.

Dewan cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, TMZ reported. She also requested spousal support and joint legal and physical custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Everly.

Tatum agreed to joint custody of Everly, but is trying to block the court's ability to award Dewan spousal support.

Dewan and Tatum announced their separation in April after nearly nine years of marriage.

Earlier this month, media reports said Tatum is dating singer Jessie J.

Iman vows to 'never' remarry after David Bowie's death

Iman says she will "never" remarry in the wake of David Bowie's death.

The 63-year-old model said in a new interview with Net-A-Porter's magazine PorterEdit that she still considers Bowie to be her husband nearly three years after the singer's death.

"I will never remarry," Iman declared. "I mentioned my husband the other day with someone, and they said to me: 'You mean your late husband?' I said, no, he is always going to be my husband."

"I do feel very lonely. But do I want a relationship? I can't say never, but no, not now," she said.

Bowie died at age 69 in January 2016 following a battle with liver cancer. Iman acknowledged fan grief for the singer, but said she doesn't appreciate people taking photos while offering their condolences.

"I get the fans' grief, but it's not the same. They have lost someone they look up to; we have lost a husband and a father," the model said of Bowie, who was parent to daughter Alexandria with Iman and son Duncan with Angie Bowie.

"And sometimes, I don't want people to know how sad I am. People say to me, 'Oh, you're so strong.' I'm not strong -- I am just trying to keep it together," she shared.

Iman took to Instagram in June 2017 on what would have been her 25th wedding anniversary with Bowie. She shared a photo with the late singer, writing, "I would walk forever, just to be in your arms again."

Which NBC talk show anchor won't be returning to the 'Today' show?

NBC talk show anchor Megyn Kelly will not return to her daily morning television program, a network spokesperson said Friday.

"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning," the spokesperson said. "Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other Today co-anchors."

Kelly, formerly employed at Fox News, received an immense negative backlash after taking a sympathetic position to white people dressing in blackface at Halloween. "Back when I was I was a kid that was OK as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character," Kelly said on her program Tuesday.

Her usually live program, before an audience and part of NBC's Today show block of morning programming, was replaced on Thursday and Friday by pre-taped episodes.

Kelly apologized for her remarks but on Wednesday, her colleagues at the Today show were critical. Craig Melvin said her comments were "indefensible" and "ignorant and racist." Al Roker suggested Kelly "owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country."

Kelly has not been fired and remains an employee of NBC, her lawyer, Bryan Freedman, said on Thursday.

Kelly joined NBC in 2017 after 12 years with Fox News. She is in the second year of a three-year, $69 million contract, and a negotiated exit from NBC could include a significant buyout. She has clashed with colleagues and management, and her morning program has received mediocre ratings, The New York Times reported on Friday.

"They're contacting the staff [of Kelly's program] and reassigning everyone today. Everyone's being told that they still have a home here, but it won't be on Megyn's show," an unidentified source told People magazine on Thursday. "Everyone knows what it means when they're being moved somewhere else. The show is clearly over."
