Hasselbeck feels at home on Fox show

NEW YORK -- For Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the "Fox & Friends" morning show already feels like home.

The former co-host on "The View" joined Fox's three-hour morning show Monday.

Hasselbeck said it seems like she's being called up to join her favorite team in the big leagues. Her conservative views often made her an outcast among her co-hosts on "The View."

‘Revolution' team sits down with U.N. officials

NEW YORK -- The cast and crew of J.J. Abrams' post-apocalyptic drama "Revolution" are kicking off season two at the United Nations to discuss the basis of the show: what happens to people when the power goes off.

Show runner Eric Kripke and stars Billy Burke, Giancarlo Esposito and Tracy Spiraidakos sat down with officials at the U.N. to talk about the plight of the one-fifth of the world's population that lives without electricity.

The event was sparked by two U.N. Undersecretaries General -- fans of "Revolution" -- who reached out to Abrams' Bad Robot production house and said they could use some help shining a light on the global energy crisis.

Rebecca Goldman, director of Good Robot, Bad Robot's philanthropic arm, says the focus on energy access seemed like a perfect match. The show's writers sat down with five U.N. workers with experience in places like Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan and the Republic of Congo.

"These are people who were negotiating directly with warlords and trying to create infrastructure in places that don't have any power," Kripke said, "and can give you boots on the ground perspective on what life was like."
