In news that should make Donald Trump furious, the four judges on Season 11 of "America's Got Talent" are now all non-Americans. NBC announced this week that the show's sole American judge Howard Stern will be replaced by British TV mogul Simon Cowell. This reality TV titan (and "Agt" producer) will join fellow Brit Mel B on the panel along with Canadian Howie Mandel and German Heidi Klum. -Break- Who will win 'Survivor: Second Chance'? See exclusive predictions Cowell was integral to the success of America's reality television boom back in 2002 when his acerbic nature brought in droves of fans for the first season of Fox's "American Idol." After starring on the show for nine seasons, Cowell left but later returned to the network as a judge/mentor on all three seasons of its now-cancelled "The X Factor" (2011-2013). The "Got Talent" franchise began with "America..." »
Cowell announced on the "Today" show that he'll join season 11 as a judge. He'll still serve as executive producer of the show he created.
"I am really thrilled to be joining 'America's Got Talent' next season," said Cowell. "What I love about this show is that it's open to absolutely anyone.

TruTV has given a fifth season to “Impractical Jokers,” its hidden-camera reality series that features the four-member comedy troupe the Tenderloins as they run amuck and play pranks around New York City.
The cast, who go by their first names or nicknames Sal, Joe, Murr and Q, gave word of the 26-episode fifth season at New York Comic Con.

Unabashedly carrying out your goals and sharing your true passion with audiences across the country can be a daunting prospect to some people. But to others, it’s a gratifying experience that allows them to finally show the importance and distinct nature of their abilities. Paul Zerdin, the recently announced winner of the 10th anniversary season of NBC’s popular reality competition series, ‘America’s Got Talent,’ relatably and humbly encompassed that later liberating desire to share his skills in ventriloquism during the show’s run this summer. American viewers and the show’s four judges, including Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel, awarded Zerdin for his inventive and unique take on [ Read More ]

Featuring: Cobie Smulders, Seth Rogen, Nathan Fillion, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, Michael J. Fox, Ben Stiller, William Shatner, Catherine O’Hara, Jason Priestley, Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Howie Mandel, Will Arnett, and Rush.
Synopsis: What does it actually mean to be Canadian? This humorous documentary, featuring interviews with a who’s-who of famous Canadians, hopes to find the answer.
Having visited Canada a few times, and the fact that my other half is Canadian, I was eager to see how Robert Cohen‘s documentary would show those charismatic folk with all their unique revelry and in Being Canadian, he’s created a funny and inimitable representation – and celebration – of the country we know something about but we’re not always exactly sure what that is, or if it’s true.
Being Canadian is written and directed by Calgarian Robert Cohen, a man who moved to L.A. »

There’s something paradoxical about the Emmys. We look forward to them and write endlessly about them, wondering who’s going to win and what stars will wear and what silly things will happen, all the while complaining about the show’s length and pace. Really, the Emmys can’t win. Except, of course, when they do.
It starts with the host. Misfires happen, of course, like the super-serious Bryant Gumbel in 1997, or the disastrous experiment 11 years later when the five nominated reality TV hosts (Jeff Probst, Tom Bergeron, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Ryan Seacrest) ran the proceedings and, aside from drawing the lowest ratings in the show’s history, made the unforgivable mistake of being boring. But there are certainly magical hires, as well.
Perhaps the two best hosts in recent memory are Conan O’Brien in 2006 — in a show that featured pre-taped sketches with casts of nominated shows, »
