Two lawsuits between reality show staffers and TV networks and production companies over unlawful working conditions have been settled for more than $4 million, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Several hundred employees of such shows as The Bachelor, Trading Spouses, Are You Hot? and The Real Gilligan's Island filed class-action lawsuits in 2005, stating that Fox, ABC, CBS and other companies ordered them to fake time cards and work overtime with few meal breaks.

A Los Angeles judge this week granted preliminary approval to a $2.57 million settlement with Fox Broadcasting and Rocket Science Laboratories and a separate $1.54 million one with ABC, CBS, Mike Fleiss' Next Entertainment and six other production companies. "I hope this settlement provides a ...

Parents' Group Outraged Over Risqué Spears Tune

Britney Spears

The Parents Television Council is urging radio stations not to play Britney Spears' third single, "If U Seek Amy" during daytime hours due to the song's racy content and title. (Say it quickly and you'll get it.) By playing the cunningly titled tune between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., radio stations "would violate the broadcast indecency law," Tim Winter, PTC president, says, according to the Associated Press. "There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it's certainly ...

Oscar Nominations Preview: What to Expect Thursday

The Dark Knight

Nominations for the 81st Academy Awards will be announced Thursday, which means time's ticking to finalize predictions. Here are some things you can keep a few things in mind for the big reveal.

For almost a year, we've heard talk about The Dark Knight being a factor in the Oscar race. Their safest bet, of course, is a supporting actor nod for Heath Ledger. (Thursday, by the way, is also the one-year anniversary of his death.) Beyond that for the film, nothing's as certain, but thanks to a hat trick of precursor nominations from the three of the Guilds (Producers, Writers and Directors), The Dark Knight is looking good to land on the best picture list.

Frontrunner Slumdog Millionaire, along with Milk, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and ...
