***Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher is joining CBS' pro football pre-game show, The NFL Today. No one's leaving, so it'll be extra-crowded with new teammates Dan Marino, Shannon Sharpe, Boomer Esiason and James Brown.

In a conference call Thursday, Cowher said he expects to be constantly asked about returning to the playing field.

"I'm pretty much committed at this point to try to do the best I can for CBS," he said.

***Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions will be teaming with mega-bestselling author Mitch Albom for another TV movie. His For One More Day
novel, still near the top of the charts, will air on ABC in December 2007, the network says.

Winfrey and Albom previously collaborated on 1999's Tuesdays With Morrie, which won four Emmys. The film starred the late Jack Lemmon as the title character, with Hank Azaria as Albom.
