It's time to retire the leotard.
ABC Family has canceled the gymnastics drama Make It or Break It after the end of its current abbreviated third season, Deadline reports. Series creator Holly Sorenson also tweeted, "MIOBI nation. We all love you so much. And we are, very sadly, three weeks away from the series finale of #miobi."
Two weeks ago, Randy Jackson chided the American Idol audience for not racking up enough votes for the undeniably talented Jessica Sanchez, who was on the brink of elimination until the judges wielded their save to keep her. The underlying message to the viewers was twofold: Vote for talent over flash, and just vote, period.
And vote they did. The following week, 53 million votes rolled in, the highest number of votes for Season 11 to date. Not only was Jessica safe, but she had enough votes to keep her out of the Bottom 3.
Grimm guest star David Zayas (Dexter) doesn't fear The Reaper; he hangs out with him.
On Friday's episode, titled "Leave It to Beavers" (9/8c, NBC), Zayas plays Sal Burrel, a monstrous troll-like creature known as the Hasslich (aka The Reapers). Sal's a city building inspector who's heading up a racketeering scheme...
Tyrion may be the smallest Lannister in stature, but he has a knack for intimidating the young men in his family.
Cousin Lancel Lannister (Eugene Simon) certainly quaked in his knightly boots on Sunday's Game of Thrones (9/8c, HBO). Ordered by Queen Regent Cersei to deliver a demand for Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) to release a certain prisoner, Lancel found himself at a disadvantage when The Imp blackmailed him into becoming an informant based upon the fact that Lancel was having an affair with Cersei.
Game of Thrones Power Shift: Joffrey brings the pain
"The King can do as he likes," King Joffrey declared on Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones. The sovereign teen exercised that right both in public and behind closed doors in a sadistic way that made that message painfully clear to his subjects and his uncle Tyrion.
Who else showed their might? Who failed to advance? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "Garden of Bones":
Natalie Dormer, Game of Thrones
Natalie Dormer may have been topless during one of her first scenes in Game of Thrones, but it was her character's attitude about sex with her husband that made the biggest impression.
In Sunday's episode, Dormer had to play the not-so-shy virgin Margaery Tyrell, who tries to consummate her marriage with Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony). When he can't quite rise to the occasion, she offers to enlist the help of her brother Loras (Finn Jones), who just so happens to be Renly's lover.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
It's not easy being married to a former showgirl.
On Friday's Magic City (10/9c, Starz), Vera (Olga Kurylenko) invites her old friend Cliff Wells (guest star Steven Brand) from her showgirl days at the Tropicana to go dancing with her and husband Ike (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)...
Dick Clark, Ryan Seacrest
Dick Clark wasn't just the host of American Bandstand or the face of New Year's Eve. He was an icon in the field of broadcasting, a household name, an avuncular figure and even the punch line for jokes about longevity. With his passing from a heart attack Wednesday, celebrities have taken to Twitter to celebrate his life and mourn his loss:
Dick Clark dies at age 82
Ryan Seacrest: I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend Dick Clark. He has truly been one of the greatest influences in my life. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
