TV Puts Focus On Music

Some of music's biggest names – from Britney Spears to Smashmouth - are set to appear on TV this fall.

Comedian Drew Carey is trying something new for the season premiere of his show later this month, reports VH1’s Rebecca Rankin for CBS News.

Carey is launching the season with a variety show, "Drew Carey’s Back-To-School Rock ’N’ Roll Comedy Hour," to feature performances by Uncle Kracker, Smashmouth and Sugar Ray.

Britney Spears is taking her pop moves to HBO in November with her own concert special - "Britney Spears Live from the MGM Grand, Las Vegas." Britney is promising an edgy show, plus a very interesting duet with Cher.
