'X Factor' Mystery: What's That in Britney Spears' Ear?

7 November 2012 2:30 PM, PST

Viewers of Fox's The X Factor might have noticed judge Britney Spears wearing an accessory on her right ear for the season’s first live episodes -- and we’re not talking about the sparkly kind. To the trained eye, it seemed the pop star had an in-ear Ifb (interruptible feedback), which allows a producer or the control room to communicate directly, possibly feeding lines or direction. Or so an on-set source tells The Hollywood Reporter. But Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph insists it’s a custom-molded earplug aimed at noise reduction.  Photos: 'X Factor' Season 2: Meet the Contestants A show

But wall-to-wall media coverage of a hotly contested presidential election also produced another list of champs and flops. Winners Nate Silver New York Times statistician gained a cult following for his on-point 2008 presidential election predictions, nailing 49 of 50 states, and while the world of columnists and cable news talkers pooh-poohed his work in this campaign, he looks likely to have correctly predicted

Judge Denies Injunction Against Dish 'AutoHop Ad-Skipper' (Exclusive)

7 November 2012 1:06 PM, PST

On Wednesday, U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles refused to grant Fox Broadcasting's first attempt to block Dish Network's advertising-skipping DVR services known as "AutoHop" and "PrimeTime Anytime." The court order is under seal, and attorneys for both sides have declined comment, citing confidentiality. However, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that a preliminary injunction has been refused. Further, the ruling might not be a complete victory for Dish because the judge is inclined to accept certain copyright infringement theories. Both sides are presenting the ruling in the most favorable light. Dish's service has several

7 November 2012 12:34 PM, PST

Supposing the notion that not all attention is good attention for Donald Trump, the last couple weeks of the presidential election were not the best of times for the outspoken real estate magnate. Always polarizing, he became a Tea Party hero in early 2011 as he publicly pondered a run for the presidency, dragging discredited accusations that President Barack Obama was not a native-born American back into the spotlight. His tweets became a one-stop shop for reporters looking for bold, controversial headlines, and he opined on everything from the economy to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's relationship. He
