TV Anchors Play Musical Chairs

We break down the latest comings and goings of TV anchors. With Keith Olbermann about to re-launch his old MSNBC show on Current TV he's just one in a long line of hosts changing venues. Anderson Cooper is out shopping a new talk show and Katie Couric is developing one for ABC. Oprah's heading to her new cable channel, OWN, and Glenn Beck is moving his show online -- for a monthly price -- and TV veterans like Jim Lehrer and Regis Philbin are retiring. Will these changes bring viewers to afternoons with soap operas going away, or will the TV business find too much clutter in the talk show space? (Rebecca Keegan of the Los Angeles Times sits in for John Horn who's away on vacation.)
