It’s been nearly a year since Jessica Sanchez came in second place on AMERICAN IDOL, but her career has skyrocketed since then — a guest role on GLEE, a single with Ne-Yo, and a debut album.
I spoke with Sanchez about making her acting debut on GLEE (and if she’ll be back), her IDOL journey, and more…

As crazy as it is to realize SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE has reached season 10, it’s even more mind-blowing that every season the dancers are getting better and better.
I spoke with long-time SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE judge Mary Murphy about what fans can expect from the crazy-talented contestants this year…
Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio will join THE X FACTOR’s third season, Fox announced in a press release. They join previously announced judges Simon Cowell (who has been with the show since the first season) and Demi Lovato (who joined last year).
“It’s taken more than a decade, but I’m delighted to finally be on a panel with three girls (I think!),” Cowell said in a statement. “Paulina and Kelly both have great taste and massive experience in the music industry and together with Demi, this is going to be a fun panel. It just feels like the time to do something different.”
“I am very excited to be reuniting with Simon Cowell and THE X FACTOR family,” said Rowland, who appeared on the U.K. version of the show. “It feels great to be able to take this journey here at home in the states!”
“I love THE X FACTOR!” added Rubio. “I can’t wait to find the next big music star here in America. I’m so thrilled to be part of the show as a judge. Simon, be careful what you wish for, let’s see if you are ready to handle me, empieza la fiesta, amigo!”
Fox may be in mostly reruns for scripted shows at this point, but tonight marks the series premiere of THE GOODWIN GAMES. It’s possible you’ve already seen the pilot, but in case you haven’t, some photos to tide you over until tonight…
THE GOODWIN GAMES
THE GOODWIN GAMES: L-R: Three estranged siblings, Henry (Scott Foley), Chloe (Becki Newton) and Jimmy (T.J.

On live television you never quite know what will happen — and THE VOICE has had its share of memorable incidents in the past couple of weeks.
After having voting irregularities during the first week of this season’s fan-voting section of the competition, last week’s live performance show was thrown for a loop when the air conditioning went out on the soundstage…and, as THE VOICE host Carson Daly told the audience, there was a slight risk things could overheat and the show would go dark. (The joys of live television…anything could happen.)
Daly — no stranger to live television between his time on the NBC singing competition and as the host of the MTV series TRL — talked with reporters after last week’s results show about how he handles those mishaps, the coaching situation, and more…

Last night’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE featured an awesome return (Amy Poehler!) and said goodbye to a long-time cast member (Bill Hader), and both got to have shining moments during the Weekend Update segment.
Take a look!
Will you miss Hader on SNL?

The original group of THE VOICE coaches will be reunited this fall for the show’s fifth season, NBC announced today. However, if you’re liking THE VOICE 2.0 coaching lineup, no fear: Shakira and Usher will return for the show’s sixth cycle in 2014.
“We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green rejoin Blake and Adam for cycle 5, and we’re pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall,” said Paul Telegdy, President of Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “They’re the reason this show was launched so strong for the first three cycles and we owe them a debt of gratitude. And after careful consideration of everyone’s schedules for next spring, we are excited to be returning the current cycle of judges — Shakira and Usher along with Blake and Adam — for cycle 6, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics.”
