The long, complicated saga of Casey Kasem's final resting place has taken another turn today as his daughter, Kerri Kasem, announced on Twitter that the funeral home in Oslo, Norway has refused to bury the late radio star.

Kerri began a petition in August that sought to collect signatures in an attempt to get Casey Kasem's widow Jean Kasem to "respect Casey's wishes," referring to his alleged request to be buried at Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles.

We wanted 10,000 signatures and we more than doubled that. Thank you to everyone that signed and shared the petition."

Q&A: Carson Daly on Casey Kasem, ‘The Voice’ and ‘Trl’

18 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A dozen years after launching “Last Call,” Carson Daly’s profile at NBC continues to grow. In addition to the latenight series and the net’s annual New Year’s Eve festivities, he also is a fixture on the “Today” set. Of course, his biggest exposure these days is as host of “The Voice,” which returns to NBC on Sept. 22.

What did you learn from your MTV days on “Total Request Live?”

Trl” was live for an hour every day. It was great boot camp or training for “The Voice,” just how to handle any situation that could possibly come up in tough circumstances — like teenage girls screaming, musicvideos playing and guests dropping by. It was great training for the ‘Today” show, too.

You won an Emmy as a producer for “The Voice” last year. Where do you keep it?

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Surprise! On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon brought Britney Spears out to read off a list of the pros and cons of dating her. She's recently single -- and apparently "The Tonight Show" audience was filled with people who are already in love with her since they stood and cheered when she showed up. (Jimmy had to remind them it's *his* show.) Jimmy said they created a profile for Britney on Tinder (bio: "This better work, b-tch.") and Britney acted shocked and not too thrilled. Stay to the end to hear her "It's Britney, b-tch" line. Keith Richards was also on "The Tonight Show" and you know the man has stories. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

The women of "Friends" staged a surprise mini reunion on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" after Kimmel pleaded with guest Jennifer Aniston to act out a "Friends" fan fiction scene he wrote. A chagrined Aniston agreed, and Kimmel led her out to a perfect recreation of the set for Monica's kitchen, where the pair, playing Ross and Rachel, discussed how good Ross is in bed. After Kimmel made a crack about how unbelievable it is that the "Friends" gang was always hanging out at Monica's for breakfast before work, both Monica (Courteney Cox) and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) arrived. They took turns reciting lines from the show's theme song as dialogue -- complete with hand claps! »

The Emmys Win in Ratings Despite Monday Move

26 August 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The move wound up working.

The Emmy Awards aired on a Monday for the first time since 1976, but it still managed to be the most-watched night of network television since the Oscars.

Pics: Inside the Wild Emmy After Parties

The award show pulled in 15.6 million viewers, its second highest viewership in eight years. This number was only slightly down from last year's 17.6 million, which is impressive considering the 2013 event took place on a Sunday in September and had an NFL lead-in on CBS.

News: Wait... Why are the Emmys on a Monday?

NBC moved the Emmys to Monday night in order to avoid conflict with Sunday Night Football. Check out the night's biggest winners and history makers below.

Many viewers tuned-in for Billy Crystal's heartfelt tribute to Robin Williams.

The stars of television say goodbye to Robin Williams.

Remembering the comedy great, Crystal said, "He made us laugh, hard, every time you saw him," continuing, "His brilliance was outstanding, his relentless energy was thrilling."

Crystal even managed to get a laugh out of the audience, poking fun at Williams' lack of knowledge about baseball, but getting serious to say, "As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine."

"It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives. For almost 40 years, he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy," Crystal said.

Remembering his friend, and all the other comedians who passed before him, and continuing the star analogy, Crystal said of »
