American Idol's Steven Tyler: I'm Not the Harsh Judge

Steven Tyler, American Idol

On the eve of his debut as American Idol judge, Steven Tyler says he's not the next Simon Cowell.

"I'm not going in there to be a harsh judge or an overbearing judge," Tyler told reporters in a conference call Tuesday. "[What I am bringing is] 40 years as the front guy in Aerosmith, who's judged the hell out of himself and made a good career out of it."

What does that mean for his judging style? Tyler said he was looking for three things from contestants: Can the person sing? What is their character like? Do they have... read more

New Idol Book: Inside Simon's Lair, Season 1's Love Triangle, This Year's "Three Paulas"

Simon Cowell

Throughout his nine-year reign atop American Idol, Simon Cowell reveled in his rep as reality TV's harshest judge. But in person, he's all about being zen. Just ask Idol expert Richard Rushfield, author of the new tell-all, American Idol: The Untold Story.

"We met at his huge office at Sony in London, which was two enormous rooms with lit candles, ginger tea and crutatae. He was very open. He wanted to know all the dirt I had heard about him.

On the Set: NCIS Welcomes Bob Newhart

Bob Newhart and Mark Harmon

Shooting a scene in the autopsy lab on the NCIS set, Bob Newhart looks a bit absentminded, and an interloper might not know whether to chuckle. The TV legend is playing Dr. Walter Magnus, who preceded Ducky (David McCallum) as the unit's medical examiner. Looking over a corpse with Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Ducky suggests their old colleague add his forensic two cents. "Walter, why don't you jump into some scrubs? ...Walter?"

Newhart's hesitancy in responding isn't far off from the trademark stammer he made into a science on two of TV's most beloved sitcoms, The Bob Newhart Show (1972-78) and Newhart (1982-90). Since NCIS is a drama in touch with its lighter side, you might guess the visiting icon was cast in "Recruited" to capitalize on his levity. Not so. The former doc... read more
