On Friday night, while walking the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball in New York, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest told THR that the reality show will be cutting the results show this season. Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance have each made a similar change.
He said, "We are going to do the performance show and the results in the same show... So there won't be a 'Wait 'til tomorrow night.' There won't be a 'Coming up, coming up, coming up.' We are going to put it all into one format in one night. So that will be exciting."
Seacrest noted, "[It will be] one night when we get to the final stage, the top 10, there will be one night of performances and results all in one night."

Kim Kardashian just tried posting a flattering photo of herself on Instagram and was met with a wave of criticism for noticeably cropping out her daughter North. She defended the decision by tweeting, "Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!" Oh, Kim. Can you? Can we? Based on those actual words, we will now offer up 10 other reasons Kim Kardashian would crop her kid out of a photograph. 1. "She wasn't wearing any name brands." 2. "She doesn't subscribe to 'Paper' magazine." 3. "Her agent and my agent are in a fight." 4. "Her neck is too tall." 5. "Her single flopped." 6. "Her smile is dated." 7. "She botched her hosting audition for 'X-Factor.'" 8. "My husband claims she's not being 'art' at this moment." 9. "Ryan Seacrest says she's not shiny enough." 10. "She has too much talent." »

Fox is making it clear that they are not fans of American Idol. After a few seasons of the series doing poorly, the network decided more changes were needed. They already announced some cut backs and it appears that now than ever that they are bigger than expected. Ryan Seacrest has confirmed that the series will only have 1 episode each week. They will pack in both the performances and results, cutting down on their twice a week format. He didn’t go into details on how that will change production or format. However, it does seem like the start of the end of the show.
Do you think this seems like bad news for the show? I do and perhaps it also shows that Fox is switching gears on what they wish to focus on. To be honest, they are lucky that the series has lasted for as long as it has. »

"I was in elementary school, I went out to the restroom and timed it with the girl I was going to kiss," Seacrest told People at Z100's Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden on Friday.

Talk of Idol being “more streamlined” in Season 14 began back in mid-May, when then-Fox president Kevin Reilly speculated that, with ratings waning, the onetime reality behemoth would transition to a “two-hour show on one night for most of its run.”
Seacrest confirmed that to be the latest thinking even in the wake of Reilly’s exit in late May. (Dana Walden and Gary Newman took the reins at Fox Broadcasting in July.) “We are going to do the »
American Idol fans are going to find out who’s going home in a whole new way. Walking the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball in New York on Friday night, Ryan Seacrest revealed that the show’s infamous results show will now be a thing of the past. “We are going to do the performance show and the results in the same show,” said the program’s longtime host backstage at Madison Square Garden. “So there won’t be a ‘Wait ‘til tomorrow night.’ There won’t be a ‘Coming up, coming up, coming up.’ We are going to put

Amazon's Transparent received two Golden Globe nominations on Thursday, and Et special correspondent Janet Mock sat down with the show's star, Jeffrey Tambor, to discuss how the series is breaking ground in entertainment.
Jeffrey was honored to sit down with Janet, who is a New York Times best-selling transgender author for her book Redefining Realness. He was equally humbled to be playing the role of a trans woman on the streaming series.
2015 Golden Globes: And the Nominees Are...
"The honor of being able to play Maura is transformative," Jeffrey told Janet in his Et interview. "I'm 70 years old. I should be in a reading room, reading Dickens or something."
While the show racks up accolades (it was nominated for Golden Globes for Best TV Series, Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series, Comedy for Tambor's impressive turn) not everyone is quick to accept the notion of a non-trans actor playing a trans character »
“Transparent” revolves around the impact on a family of the patriarch’s decision to come out as a transgender woman. Jeffrey Tambor also earned a Globe nom for his much-praised performance in the lead role.
Transgender stories and characters are becoming more prominent in mainstream TV, as evidenced by the acclaim for “Transparent.”
“ABC Family is best known for its complex, loving and relatable family programming, and we are so proud to partner with Ryan Seacrest Productions to share Ben’s incredible real-life story,” said ABC Family prexy Tom Ascheim. “While Ben’s family situation is unusual, »

On Thursday, Amazon's Transparent received two Golden Globe nominations, making it one of the most surprising series to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. By picking up nominations for Best TV Series, Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series, Comedy for Jeffrey Tambor’s portrayal of the transgender character Maura, the series broke ground on multiple levels.
The streaming series, which tells the story of a father (Tambor) coming out as a trans woman to her family, marks Amazon’s debut as a competitive online network. The service now joins the ranks of Netflix, which continues to expand its domination of the TV categories with multiple nominations for House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black. It’s significant because not only does it creep on the dominance typically maintained by cable networks, most notably »
Amazon sort of broke the bounds with their original series, em>Transparent by showing transgendered characters. Now ABC Family wants a piece of the pie. It has been reported that they are researching for a docu-series based upon the idea of a teen boy (Ben) who finds his parents breaking apart. However, he also finds himself landing two mothers. His dad will start the process of the change as he comes clean about who he is. It will be called My Transparent Life and will be produced by Ryan Seacrest (we’re sure jokes will follow). It has bee ordered straight to series with an unknown number of episodes or target dates.
Yikes, it looks like they may find themselves starting a craze here. Other networks will get word of this and will of course want to copy. It will be interesting to see how they produce and write the show. »

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.
Ricky Gervais was on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon and they did "Lip Flip." They probably should've done one of the other games - Ricky would be good at Box of Lies - but every time Ricky laughs you have to laugh. Jimmy looks like a vampire with Ricky's sharp teeth. This line is uttered at one point: "I'm Jimmy Fallon, and I shave my balls." My, my! They also sing some Christmas carols in the end.

Maybe Taylor Swift is single and loving it (that's what she says — and she would know). Maybe Taylor Swift is dating Matt Healy from the band The 1975 (she’s gone to two of their shows in one month). Maybe she's dating Harry Styles again (they went to a concert together last month).
Or maybe —Big Twist — she’s making out with best friend Karlie Kloss!!!

Time has been kind to Jimmy Kimmel and Ryan Seacrest! Seacrest stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday, where he opened up about his nerdy past as the two stars compared yearbook photos. Check out the video above to see their cute photos and find out why Ryan hated spring break! It definitely sounds like the comedian didn't have it as hard in school as the Kiis FM radio host did ... poor guy had to wear "husky" pants and tinted glasses. "My mom would take me to the Marshall's on Roswell Road in Atlanta, and we'd walk in, and I'd look at all the jeans," he said."She'd just kind of smile, and then she'd point me in another direction. I'd say, 'Mom, I like those,' and she'd say, 'Well, let's look at the husky jeans.'""What a horrible word," Jimmy admitted. "No wonder I'm scarred for life about it, »

Growing up geeky isn't always fun in the moment, but boy, does it build character! On Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and his guest Ryan Seacrest bonded over their admittedly awkward childhood photos.
