Are more exciting changes coming to The View? Raven-Symoné, 29, and comedienne Michelle Collins, 33, who have guest co-hosted the ABC daytime show more than a dozen times each since March, may be made permanent co-hosts. Veteran co-host Whoopi Goldberg, 59, announced the news on Thursday on the program, which has seen a lot of casting shake-ups since its 1997 debut.

"We're trying to make it permanent, so write in to everybody." Collins then mouthed, »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

The women of “The View” tackled a pressing issue of the week along with a decade-long argument on Thursday’s episode: the deadly Amtrak train crash in Philadelphia and America’s decision to go to war in Iraq. With Whoopi Goldberg absent from the show, Nicolle Wallace, Rosie Perez and Raven-Symone were joined by “View” veteran Joy Behar and model/actress Molly Sims. Given the diverse ideologies on Thursday’s panel, the conversation grew heated at times. The discussion about the train derailment in Philadelphia quickly turned to Republican efforts to cut funding for Amtrak by about a fifth. Also Read: 7 Juicy 'View' Revelations From. »

RelatedPilot Season ’15: Scoop on This Fall’s (Possible) New Shows, Who’s In Them
The multi-cam project — based on the real-life experiences of comedian Jermaine Fowler — followed a millennial (played by Fowler) with big ideas, but very little drive. He moves in with his estranged grandmother (Goldberg), a strict, football-loving, former D.C. cop who needs his youthful enthusiasm in her life as much as he needs her old-school parenting.

“Every time I’ve looked in my future, you’ve always been in it. And I don’t know what I’m gonna do without you.”
It’s hard to hear Rayna utter those words in this week’s Nashville, partly due to the gut-wrenching nature of her grief and partly due to the fact that she’s sobbing so hard the sentence ends in a pitch only hyenas can hear.
But let’s keep in mind that the past few years have seen our girl end a marriage, hook up with a hipster, launch a record label, battle her »
It’s sweepstakes time in network TV.
Executives at the Big Four and CW are hip deep in the annual ritual that plays out in darkened screening rooms, as groups of staffers, assembled with focus-group precision to reflect target demos (assistants and interns see a momentary spike in clout), evaluate this year’s crop of pilots in the hopes of finding next season’s big sensation. The sizzle of Fox’s “Empire” has restored the industry’s faith that network TV can still field an overnight sensation. Really, it can.
After a few days of screenings, buzz begins to coalesce around the handful of projects out of 80-plus broadcast pilots that will get a series pickup. But buzz is an unpredictable and volatile mistress. There are innumerable examples of sure things that went south at the last minute (“Beverly Hills Cop” with Eddie Murphy and Shawn Ryan?

Raven-Symoné says she has worn Spanx body shapewear since she was in her early teens, signaling that she was under Hollywood pressure to appear slimmer. The 29-year-old former child star, known for roles on The Cosby Show, the Disney Channel series That's So Raven and, recently, Fox's Empire, made her comments while co-hosting The View on Wednesday after veteran star Whoopi Goldberg expressed annoyance about the apparel company's new campaign slogan, "Don't take yourself or the 'rules' too seriously."
