TV on Tap: Lifetime Finds a New Aaliyah, Why “American Idol”‘s Ratings Are Down and “The Strain” Looks to Set a Record

21 July 2014 5:14 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Fox chief Peter Rice talked to the Television Critics Association and commented on the decline of Idol‘s ratings. “…we haven’t found a group of kids the last two years who really captured the imagination of the public. We talked about it this year— how do we focus on that and not get wrapped up in this constant conversation about the judges and how good they are?” Pretty much every time I’ve paid attention to Idol, it’s been due to a contestant who grabbed my attention, so I’d say he’s on the right track.

We can expect to see Arrow and the upcoming spin-off Flash cross over in different ways. “You will see — organically — characters shifting over, villains shifting over back and forth between Flash and Arrow. We will be introducing more villains that are part of the DC Comics universe.” I’m still »

Briefs: Robbie Amell Joins “The Flash,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck Flips Out Over Rosie, And Chris Colfer Secretly Sleep Shops

9 July 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Birthday shoutouts go to Douglas Booth (above), who is 22, Tom Hanks is 58, and Jimmy Smits is 59.

Robbie Amell has joined The Flash in a recurring role, playing Ronnie Raymond: “In the DC Comics mythology, Raymond is a man who bonds with another to form the nuclear powered super hero, Firestorm.”

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not happy about Rosie‘s return to The View: “Here in comes to The View the very woman who’s spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and, really spit in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there – coming back with a bunch of control, ready to regain The View with a seat at that table.”

Video: Halle Berry and Jimmy Fallon literally roll together on 'Tonight'

9 July 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Halle Berry’s next project, Extant, is full of mysteries, so it only serves to reason that she’s going on talk shows and doing mysterious things.

Or at least that’s the only way we can think to make sense of this clip from The Tonight Show Tuesday night, which features Berry and Jimmy Fallon doing some sort of joint hamster-ball somersault to the sound of crashing cymbals. In case you were wondering, we counted two and a half revolutions.

In addition to the hamster wheel thing, Berry also took on a game of charades with Fallon and Chris Colfer and talked Extant. »

Meme: Harry Styles Favorites a Porn Tweet, “Under the Dome” Showrunner Comes Out, Chris Colfer Visits Marvel HQ

Naya Rivera returning to Glee as recurring guest star, Chris Colfer speaks about being hacked, Broke Straight Boys is trying to be a TV reality show

So it appears that Harry Styles favorited a rather graphic porn tweet, and the Internet lost their collective minds, with #HarryDontLickAnything becoming the number one trending topic on Twitter. Harry eventually noticed the trend and unfavored the tweet, replacing it among his nine favorited tweets with a cute animal. Can’t a boy band superstar appreciate porn without the whole world weighing in?

Doritos has unleashed a Roulette edition bag of chips in Canada. The idea is that most of the bag is normal chips, but 3-4 in the bag are stunningly, amazingly hot, and you don’t know which is which.
