TV Tonight: Stand Up to Cancer

Sometimes it might seem as though my heart is made of snark, but really, when celebrities get together to raise money for a good cause, I just have to stand in awe of their power. That's why I'm curious to see tonight's Stand Up to Cancer telethon, which will be broadcast on ABC, CBS, NBC, and E! starting at 8 p.m. EDT.

The one-hour special brings together celebrities and journalists to raise awareness about cancer and money to fight it. More than 60 stars have signed on, including Jessica Alba, Ellen DeGeneres, Keanu Reeves, Carrie Underwood, Scarlett Johansson, America Ferrera, Meryl Streep, Forest Whitaker, and Christina Applegate, who will talk about her own experience battling breast cancer. The news anchors from the three major networks will also chip in, presenting facts about cancer and talking about the latest advances.

Among the major events is the debut of the video for the single "Just Stand Up," a collaboration between Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, and others. People who call in during the show to pledge have a chance of talking to one of the celebrities as they answer phones. Many of the stars have filmed public service announcements trying to spread the word about the special and the Stand Up To Cancer organization, so to watch a couple of those — including one from The Daily Show — just

I will definitely watch. This year alone I know two people who are close to me affected by cancer. It's heartbreaking.

:rotfl: Jenna! I can't believe I've not been coming over to Buzz. How cool is it that there are recaps! Perfect for people like me with a zillion things goin on sometimes! I love it when Celebrities use their fame and wealth for good causes! That's actually what makes them (imho) & of course their acting abilities but to see what kind of person they really are and if they will come off of some of their millions just like that. ♥ it!
