The Ticker: Griffin, O’Reilly, Corderi…

By Chris Ariens 

>The Early Show talked exclusively with Merv Griffin‘s son Tony Griffin, this morning. Griffin said of his father, “he’s the Energizer Bunny. He’s the guy who just gets up and goes and has fun and entertains… this wasn’t his type of ending.”

>TVNewser has learned, Bill O’Reilly will be speaking with two presidential candidates this week: Sen. John McCain tonight and Rudy Giuliani tomorrow night.

>MSNBC cameras get rare access for a real-life look at death scene investigations. NBC News’ Victoria Corderi narrates Dead Men Talking, next Tuesday night, and the following two Tuesdays, at 11pm ET.
