  • The FCC's Yul Kwon is headed back to TV -- this time for good. The former deputy chief of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, who won "Survivor" in 2006, announced he's leaving to be the host of "America Revealed," airing on PBS this fall.

  • Michael Douglas says he's survived his throat cancer. "The tumor is gone," the actor, 66, told the "Today" show. "What I know about this particular type of cancer [is] that I've got it beat."

  • Hugh Hefner has purchased the outstanding shares of Playboy and is taking his flagging empire -- which he founded in 1953 -- private. The board approved the deal Sunday night; Hefner, 84, hopes to return the bunny ears to their former glory.
