Fox Sets Premiere Dates for American Idol and Empire

20 November 2014 8:03 AM, PST | | See recent news »

It’s hard to believe that American Idol will be entering its 14th season this coming year, but it will be and now we know when it will begin.

Fox sets 'American Idol,' 'Empire' premiere dates

19 November 2014 2:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a somewhat rough fall, Fox is slowly making announcements for the spring of 2015, revealing a two-night premiere for "American Idol" and a launch for the already-heavily-promoted musical drama "Empire." Season 14 of "American Idol," also know as "AI, Ad" ("American Idol, After Dawg"), will begin with a two-night three-hour premiere on Wednesday, January 7 at 8 p.m. and Thursday, January 8 from 8 to 10 p.m. There are still plenty of questions remaining. "Idol" typically has one airing schedule for the auditions through Hollywood Week, followed by a different schedule for live performance shows and results. So will "Idol" be airing twice a week in that initial phase, followed by the previously announced once-per-week plan? Or has everything changed? It's a mystery. For now, we know that "Empire," starring Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, will premiere on Wednesday, January 7 at 9 p.m. after "Idol." The premiere will air with limited commercial interruption. »

What are the Hollywood Film Awardsc

14 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tonight the Hollywood Film Awards® will make their television debut on CBS, but what exactly is this show that has actually trademarked the tagline "Official Launch of the Award Season™" and declares they "launch the awards season" and that "over the past 17 years, prior honorees have gone on to garner many Oscar nominations and wins"c Well, it's just that, it's a so-called "awards" ceremony where the "winners" are more-or-less hand-picked by publicists. They aren't necessarily awards as much as they are curated attempts at headlines on the campaign trail. Carlos de Abreu is listed as the Founder and Executive Producer of the Hfa. His bio lists him as "an Internet pioneer" (whatever that means) and founder and CEO of the Hollywood Network® Inc. He was also a jet pilot in the Portuguese Air Force, but perhaps most importantly he has experience in brand marketing, which is pretty much all the Hollywood Film Awards are. »

On TV, No Idea Ever Truly Dies

14 November 2014 5:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Everything dies, baby, that's a fact," sang Bruce Springsteen in the song "Atlantic City." "But maybe everything that dies someday comes back."

The Boss might have been singing about this week's happenings in the world of television, events that proved once again that TV is a rest home where nothing ever truly dies and everything can someday return to life (with only a minimum of zombie-creepiness). In the world of television (which includes streaming online video, where everything from last night's Jimmy Fallon shenanigans to the most ancient and obscure TV arcane is just a click away), there is a galaxy of possibilities cobbled together from pop culture jetsam; there are alternate universes where amazing shows by unlikely auteurs exist, or where those shows debut when we want them to instead of years too late; and there are realms where the inability of anything to become permanently lost in the »

Randy Jackson Signing Off American Idol

12 November 2014 11:34 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Fox is losing their second to last only original member left of American Idol, Randy Jackson. The legendary music producer stepped away this last season as a judge to be a mentor. However, he is now officially leaving the show. He has stayed on for 13 seasons, making him the only original judge who stayed attached to the show. Now with failing ratings he made the announcement to jump ship. Fox is aware of their series losing steam, hence why they have adjusted the schedule for the 14th season coming up.

I am sad to see him leave. He was perhaps one of the better judges as he actually knew what works. However, he has had a long run with the show and we can see why he would desire to leave it. It would allow him to step back to his music world and perhaps work on new projects in »

Randy Jackson Leaving 'American Idol' (For Real)

12 November 2014 6:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The Dawg is done.

Randy Jackson announced yesterday that he is leaving "American Idol" after 13 seasons as a judge and mentor. The former musician and producer has been with the Fox reality competition from the start.

"After 13 seasons, I felt now was the perfect time to leave 'American Idol,,'" he said in a statement to Deadline. "I'm proud to have been a part of a series that discovered some incredible artists and will go down in history as one of the most successful television shows ever. A true original, Idol started it all. Onto what's next."

Jackson first tried to leave "Idol" in 2013, after season 12 ended. It was a tumultuous time for the once-juggernaut program - Jackson's fellows judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey departed, leaving only Keith Urban on the panel. "Idol" invited Jackson back as a mentor, to replace Jimmy Iovine, and he accepted.
