In 2004, Pauley returned to television as host of The Jane Pauley Show, a syndicated daytime talk show distributed by NBC Universal. Although The Jane Pauley Show never gained traction in the ratings and was canceled after one season,  Pauley called it the hardest and proudest year of her professional life. "To try something that you’ve failed at is, in my experience, proving that you had the guts to try."

Wake Me Up When It's Canceled

Of all the new talk shows that premiered last year, Jane Pauley's is the worst. Her show doesn't bring anything new to the genre and it's extremely boring. Why would she want to leave a job like anchoring 'Dateline' to do a lousy job on a boring talk show? Recently, she admitted that she was bipolar, but I actually think she is just plain crazy for deciding to do this show. If there's ever a time where you find that you can't go to sleep then set your VCR or TiVO to record the Jane Pauley Show. This show can cure insomnia, quiet screaming babies, or help you catch up on some much needed sleep. I'm watching it right now...

They've sold 90 million albums and have gone beyond their cult-like status to become one of the most famous heavy metal bands of all time. But on the September 30th episode of the >Jane Pauley Show, we saw a very different side of Metallica. Conflicts that came about during the making of their last album led to one of the most intimate and personal revelations of their careers and lives. Through group therapy sessions that are documented in the new film, "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster," the band members learned more about themselves and each other than they ever did in over 20 years of touring side by side.

During the taping, show producers scouted the audience to find the biggest Metallica fan and selected Shirley Alvarez. All four band members signed an Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500R and presented it to Shirley. She was so excited it brought her to tears!
