Last season, America's Got Talent rose significantly in the ratings. Back in February though, Nick Cannon -- who hosted the past eight cycles-- publicly parted ways with the series. With Tyra Banks now taking the reins, will the audience dwindle, or increase? Will America's Got Talent be cancelled or renewed for season 13? Stay tuned. A nationwide talent competition, America's Got Talent features various individual and group performances. The winning act wins a cash prize and the chance to headline in the America's Got Talent Live show in Las Vegas. Returning as judges are Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Melanie Brown, and Heidi Klum. Guest judges in season 12 include Chris Hardwick, DJ Khaled, Laverne Cox, and Seal. The NBC series typically airs on Tuesdays (and also on Wednesdays, during the live performances and results episodes). Read More… »
A 9-year-old girl wowed judges on “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday when she belted Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire,” which eventually earned her the Golden Buzzer. When Angelica Hale stepped onto the stage wearing a pink outfit, judge Heidi Klum asked her whether she was more or less nervous now than the first time she stepped on stage, given that they were so close to the live show. Saying she’s more nervous now, Hale began her performance and immediately blew away the judges and the audience with her rendition of the 2012 song.

The America's Got Talent season 12 auditions are officially in the books, and that means it's on to the Judge Cuts. Guest panelist and Singled Out host Chris Hardwick is on hand to help Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B. and Howie Mandel begin the arduous task of whittling down their pre-selected Top 80 to 28.
It happens in batches of 20, with one golden buzzer and six other acts advancing out of each group. They head to the live shows, where they are joined by already-chosen quarterfinalists Light Balance and a barbershop quartet of sadness. (Okay, ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer doesn't have a tragic past, but work with me.) »

Nearly every episode of America's Got Talent this season has included a magic act that is utterly mind-blowing, and with the show heading into the next round of competition the illusions are just going to get even crazier.
With this in mind, magician Eric Jones is kicking things off with some breathtaking close-up magic and a smashing performance that the judges aren't soon to forget.
While the talented performer got enough votes to move on following his audition earlier this season, judge Simon Cowell criticized Jones for not having enough stage presence. Jones said he took "all of your comments into consideration," and decided to come back with a more forceful second appearance.

Unfortunately for the fan dressed in an inflatable Baymax costume (which was so big he couldn't fit into any of the convention center's seats), Friday's Pixar and Disney Animation panel at D23, Disney’s fan expo, didn't provide confirmation on sequels to either Big Hero 6 or Zootopia. But host John Lasseter, head of Walt Disney Animation and Pixar Studios, did have plenty of scoop on Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph 2, The Incredibles 2 and more!

RuPaul must be dragging on the celebrations today, because not only did the TV Academy nominate him for best host again, but his series “RuPaul’s Drag Race” landed its first-ever major Emmy nomination in the coveted outstanding reality competition category.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race’s” Emmy success comes on the heels of the series’ most-watched and buzziest season yet — a true victory for a show heading into its tenth season. The drag queen competition had more visibility than ever in Season 9 because of the network shift from Logo to VH1, and made headlines for A-list guest stars such as Lady Gaga, Kesha, and Lisa Kudrow. However, the political divide may be what truly boosted “Drag Race” into Emmy-voters’ minds, with Hollywood championing diverse and inclusive storytelling now more than ever.

With more than 400 television shows to choose from and only a handful of ballot slots per category, the 21,000-plus voting members of the TV Academy had no choice but to leave quite a few strong contenders off the 2017 Emmy ballots. However, with such a plethora of worthy candidates, there were also quite a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that the official nominations have been announced, Variety breaks down the biggest snubs and surprises of this small-screen award season.
Snub: Oprah Winfrey
You may have thought the Academy could never snub Winfrey — voters just spot her name on the ballot, and even if they haven’t seen her in the role for which she’s nominated, they’ll usually still give her the nod. But this year that proved not to be true, as Winfrey was overlooked for limited series “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”

HBO’s drama scored with viewers, averaging 12 million per episode across all its platforms — the most ever for a freshman series on the cabler. It’s been renewed for a second season, though no premiere date has been announced.
NBC’s veteran sketch show, “SNL,” similarly enjoyed a ratings surge this season, fueled by the swirl of headlines from the election and the Trump Administration, and star turns from Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (both were nominated). This past season ranked as its most-watched in 23 years.
Netflix’s freshman hit “Stranger Things,” meanwhile, landed 19 nominations, with noms for best drama, supporting actress Millie Bobby Brown, and supporting actor David Harbour, among others. “Feud: Bette and Joan” also nabbed 18 noms, thanks to lead actresses Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and »

The nominations for the 69th Annual Emmy Awards were unveiled on Thursday morning.
The honorees were announced at the Television Academy’s Wolf Theatre at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood by “Veep” actress Anna Chlumsky, “S.W.A.T.” star Shemar Moore, and Television Academy CEO Hayma Washington at 8:30 a.m. Pt.
As Peak TV reaches new heights, it’s only fitting that this year saw a bigger Emmy ballot. Drama series had the largest number of submissions with 180, with best actor in a drama close behind at 140, and best actress in a drama up next at 113.
The Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert, will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 5 p.m. Pt. on CBS.
