Bob Dylan is adding another award to his resume… details in your Daily Scoop.

Bob Dylan, Nobel laureate. In the book world’s equivalent of a Supreme Court ruling, the Nobel judges declared Thursday that Dylan is not just a rock star but a poet of the very highest order.  Dylan, 75, becomes the first musician in the 115-year history of the Nobel to win the prize in literature. He was honoured for “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”

Billy Bush has been removed from Today Show billboards outside the shows studio in New York.  Bush was suspended from the morning show after the Donald Trump tapes leaked.  A source close to the show says “He’s definitely gone. A lot of people feel so bad for him. He’s a good guy. He made a mistake, but he’s a genuinely good guy.  They don’t see any way he can go back on morning TV after this.”

Chris Rock is making his return to television as a standup comic, and he’s being paid a king’s ransom for his efforts.  After an eight-year absence, the multiple Emmy-winning comedian has signed a massive pact with Netflix for two stand-up specials.  Sources say Rock has secured a whopping $40 million for the specials, which sets a new high mark for a stand-up comic.
