Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi
Jersey boy Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band got 12.12.12: The Concert for Sandy Relief off to a rollicking start Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden with a poignant opening set that included "Land of Hopes and Dreams," "Wrecking Ball" and "My City of Ruins."
The concert donated 100 percent of its proceeds to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, a large-scale relief effort launched specifically to aid people in the tri-state area whose lives were impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The concert was telecast commercial-free on 37 television networks in the U.S., as well as on radio stations and streaming sites around the country and...
Alicia Keys is on fire! Britney rocks a fedora! And two more acts go home on Thursday's The X Factor. How does it all play out? Let's take a look:
The Top 8 finalists on The X Factor tackled chart-topping songs Wednesday, knowing that Thursday they'll face another double elimination on Fox's singing show. With only a fraction of a percent separating the Top 4 contestants after last week's show, the competition is getting fierce.
Also getting fierce? The banter between judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, with Lovato not responding well to Cowell's criticisms of her contestants, and chiding him about everything from his age to his bachelor status. Cowell responded by telling the 20-year-old that he had sold more than 300 million records in his career. (Snap!)
The biggest stars in Hollywood are coming together Friday for Stand Up to Cancer's third prime-time fundraising special.
Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake, Julia Roberts and more will appear on the Gwyneth Paltrow-produced telecast to raise money for the fight against cancer. Supporters can call in and donate money to the cause during the commercial-free event.
MTV's Video Music Awards was once known for stirring up drama (See: Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift), but Thursday's installation was unfortunately tame, with highlights including Rebel Wilson in a bikini shirt, host Kevin Hart calling out people's mistakes (ahem, Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson), the final Twilight sneak peek and VMAs princess Swift closing the show with...
A few quick thoughts about tonight's TV playlist:
You know the Obama campaign has to be counting on the youth demographic to once again "rock the vote," as they used to say, so the timing is curious for MTV's annual Video Music Awards extravaganza from L.A.'s Staples Center to encroach on the climactic night of the Democratic National Convention from Charlotte, where President Obama's speech is the main event.
Maybe there will be cutaways? At any rate...

Alicia Keys, Tyler Perry
Tyra Banks is taking America's Next Top Model back to school. The 19th cycle of the hit reality competition, which premieres Friday, Aug. 24 on The CW, marks the show's first-ever College Edition.
In true supermodel fashion, Banks will be accompanied by some famous guests — Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys will be a mentor to the aspiring models in one episode, and Tyler Perry will also make an appearance.
The Voice crowned its Season 2 champ on Tuesday night, but backstage, everyone was talking about the feud between coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine -- everyone, that is, except winner Jermaine Paul, of Team Blake Shelton.
Lionel Richie, John Legend
ABC's upcoming singing competition Duets is saving room for John Legend, who will replace Lionel Richie, the network announced Monday.
It is unclear why Richie dropped out of the project. He appeared as a guest mentor for Christina Aguilera's team on The Voice earlier this season and is currently promoting his new...
