Remixing American Idol

American Idol

Nine years ago, a brutally honest record exec named Simon Cowell was so vicious as a judge on a new musical talent show that a few performers he rudely rejected came after him with baseball bats. Fellow judge Paula Abdul was so put out by his rough treatment of young singers that at one point during the first season, she stormed off the set threatening to quit. The third judge, Randy Jackson, once could be seen standing up angrily behind the judges' table, looking like he was going to clobber Cowell.

Despite that rocky beginning, or perhaps because ...

Watercooler: Rats! The Tail-End of Hoarders' Season

Hoarders

Only people dead inside could watch Hoarders and simply say, "they crazy!" Sure, there's insanity on parade, but by the end of most episodes, after all the human excrement has been shoveled away, there's usually nothing left but sympathy. For the sufferers. For their families. And especially ...

The Biz: Press Tour Day One: ABC

Christiane Amanpour

The new president of ABC News is ready to shake up This Week with Christiane Amanpour.

Off the Map's Jason George Previews His Bad-Boy Character

Jason George

The relationship between Grey's Anatomy's Dr. Miranda Bailey and Dr. Ben Warren may not have worked out, but there's a good reason: actor Jason George is moving on to play another doctor, this time on ABC's Off the Map (also produced by Grey's Shonda Rimes), premiering January 12.

"I would love to [return to Grey's], but I can easily see where the network and Shonda may have problems with that," George told TV Guide Magazine at the ABC TCA party on January 10. "With this show launching as big as it's launching right now, it's easiest to just have my face associated ...

Roush Review: Game On for Lights Out

Holt McCallany

With Lights Out, a gripping new series about a middle-aged boxer who may not be as washed-up as he seems, FX continues to redefine the notion of a TV hero. Far from a Rocky road to redemption, with the forced uplift that implies, Lights Out goes much darker, so much so that at times you may feel you need a flashlight to watch.

If it weren't for bad luck, there would be no series. At least that's the impression you get upon first meeting Patrick "Lights" Leary, a former heavyweight champ who's been out of the ring for five years at the urging of his wife. (We first see him suffering the effects of a concussion, face pounded like ground meat ...

TLC Source: No Plans to Continue Sarah Palin's Alaska

Sarah Palin, Kate Gosselin

Did Sarah Palin ask for $1 million an episode to do a second season of her ratings-rich Sarah Palin's Alaska? Did the former governor and Vice Presidential candidate reject TLC's offer of another season? Or did TLC pull the plug for political reasons, worried about the practicality of running a second season with a (possible) presidential candidate? The answer: none of the above.
