Move over Nicki and Mariah, a new feud is brewing on the set of Fox's American Idol. Thursday night's results show, which saw the departure of Paul Jolley, featured harsh words from Interscope Records chairman and mentor Jimmy Iovine, who called out the judges for being too complimentary and confusing in their critiques. Those words did not sit well with the judges, who challenged Iovine directly when TV Guide Magazine caught up with them backstage just moments after the show wrapped.

The duo took the stage at Los Angeles' premier improv school, the Groundlings, and reminisced about their comedy roots...

Abandoned cars, tattered clothes, busted baby dolls and plastic dinosaurs litter a graffiti-covered bridge spanning Senoia, Georgia's Yellow Jacket Creek on this sweltering August day. In the middle of the road leading to it, a horde of menacing walkers closes in on a helpless family trapped inside a broken-down hatchback, and The Walking Dead coexecutive producer and special-effects whiz Greg Nicotero is calling for more gore.
"I'm gonna need two more bodies and blood!" he yells to a production assistant as he dips his hand in a bucket and stirs the crimson concoction that will sub for brain matter. As makeup artists load the goop into a zombie "crush head," Nicotero positions himself under...
"The Actor" Statuette
About two weeks before the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, a team of producers lock themselves in a room with a giant floor plan of L.A.'s Shrine Expo Hall posted on the wall in order to figure out the seating assignments for this year's 221 nominees and their guests.
Since the awards show's inception almost two decades ago, "We've wanted to make sure the actors were seated together, because it's their union," says SAG Awards producer Kathy Connell, who stresses the importance of...

It's the first day of shooting American Idol Season 12's Hollywood Week, and the judges are on their best behavior. Sitting side by side at the dais, five-time Grammy winner Mariah Carey and three-time nominee Nicki Minaj listen patiently, compare notes and whisper suggestions to each other as dozens of male contestants step forward to sing. Flanked by Aussie country crooner Keith Urban and Idol mainstay Randy Jackson (the only returning judge), the divas reveal a camaraderie that's a far cry from the antagonism they displayed just a few months earlier.
In October, when auditions rolled through Charlotte, North Carolina, cell-phone-video footage of Carey and Minaj arguing over a contestant's performance was leaked on the Internet. "If you say one more disrespectful thing to me, off with your head!" Minaj threatened. "Why do I have a 3-year-old sitting around me?" countered Carey...
