Disney Channel pulls 'Jessie' episode after gluten-intolerance jokes spark controversy
54 minutes ago
A recent episode of Disney Channel's comedy "Jessie" has been removed from the network's lineup after it found itself embroiled in controversy over the show's approach to a character's gluten intolerance.
"[W]e received your feedback about tonight's 'Jessie' episode which some of you accessed early on Video-on-Demand," the network announced through a Facebook statement posted Friday (May 17). "We are removing this particular episode from our regular programming schedule and will re-evaluate its references to gluten restrictions in the character's diet. Please accept our apologies for the upset this episode caused you and your family."
The episode in question, "Quitting Cold Koala," was set to premiere the same day. It finds Debby Ryan's title character, a nanny, looking after Zuri's gluten-free frenemy Stuart (played by J.J. Totah). After learning of his food restrictions, jokes are made the character's expense, including one in which pancakes are tosses at Stuart while he screams, »
'Dancing with the Stars' finale: Who won Season 16 - Kellie Pickler or Zendaya?
3 hours ago
How did Zendaya and Kellie come to face off in the last moments of Season 16? Aly and Mark were eliminated earlier in the night at fourth place. And then, shortly before the final results, Jacoby and Karina were named as the third place dancers for the season.
Going into the finale, the relevant scores were as follows:
The three couples remaining after Aly and Mark's elimination had only limited time to adapt their choreography for the Instant Dance round. What styles did they all get?

'Grimm' Season 2 finale: 'Goodnight, Sweet Grimm' sends a major character to his coffin
4 hours ago
"Grimm" has ended its second season with quite the cliffhanger in its finale, "Goodnight, Sweet Grimm": Nick (David Giuntoli) is captured by Eric Renard (James Frain) and Baron Samedi and is beginning his transformation into one of the Cracher-Mortel's zombie creatures, and Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), Rosalee (Bree Turner) and Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) are left surrounded by enemies with escape looking less and less likely. But "Grimm" wouldn't be doing its job if it didn't leave us wanting more, and now we know a lot of big storylines that are set up for the series' return in the fall on Fridays at 9 p.m.
At least Juliette and Nick finally completely reunite in the Season 2 finale. After a season of being apart, Juliette is taking to having her memories return and learning about the Wesen world surprisingly well. She has Nick over for dinner where they make up in more ways than one, »
'The Voice' results: The Top 10 sheds two - Who went home?
4 hours ago
On Tuesday's (May 21) episode of "The Voice," the Top 10 shed a little dead weight, with two more artists let go based on America's vote. It could've been a dicey night for coaches Usher and Shakira, who each only had two singers left in the game at the top of the hour. Would the evening end with a coach's team empty? Or might Adam Levine and Blake Shelton lose one of their artists?
First, a little music: Blake takes the stage with wife Miranda Lambert to perform a touching tribute to the Oklahoma tornado victims. After that, Shakira takes the stage with her team on "I'll Stand By You." This seems to continue the theme of honoring those who've been touched by tragedy in Oklahoma this week. It's wonderful take on the song, with Sasha Allen sounding particularly great.
'Dancing with the Stars' Season 16 finale: Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas land in fourth place
5 hours ago
It was actually a bit of a surprise that Aly and Mark were the first to go from the "DWTS" finale. After the performances on Monday night, the couple was in third place. They were a few points off the nearly perfect leaders -- Zendaya and Val, Kellie and Derek -- but were well ahead of Jacoby and Karina when it came to points. Aly and Mark's 61 points seemed enough to keep them safe about Jacoby and Karina's 56.
And this has been a popular couple throughout the season. Not always at the top, Aly and Mark were always high enough up and good enough dancers to escape the cruel blow of the bottom two.
That all came to an end with the finale results. »
'The Voice': Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert perform tribute for tornado victims
5 hours ago
"The Voice" wants to let those affected by the tragic tornados in Oklahoma that they're not alone.
Coach Blake Shelton and wife Miranda Lambert performed a duet dedicated to their home state at the top of the hour on Tuesday's (May 21) episode. The country couple took the stage with Lambert's touching ballad, "Over You." Shelton accompanied his wife on the guitar, letting her handle the track on her own. The performance was accompanied by an on-screen number for American Red Cross donations.

Fail Factor: How well did TV networks choose their new shows this season? [Updated]
8 hours ago
Update: Now that the networks have set their schedules for the 2013-14 season, totals and percentages changed to reflect the current status of each show.
It is no secret that this has not been a banner year for broadcast television.
The narrative that, on the business side at least, this has been a down season for traditional network TV is not just hype. Compared to this time last season, all five English-language broadcast networks are drawing smaller ratings among adults 18-49, the age group that drives the bulk of advertiser spending.
The drops range from trifling (CBS is down from a 3.0 last year to a 2.9, NBC from 2.5 to 2.4) to alarming (Fox has lost seven tenths of a point, going from 3.2 last season to 2.5 now). Three networks -- ABC, Fox and NBC -- are also drawing smaller total audiences, while CBS and The CW have posted just modest gains of 220,000 and 70,000 viewers. »
'Kitchen Nightmares' Amy and Samy Bouzalgo: Amy's Baking Co. haters gotta hate
8 hours ago
Today (Tuesday, May 21) is a mighty day for Arizona natives who love soggy pizza and verbal abuse: Today is the day that Amy's Baking Co. indulges us in its grand reopening.
Fans of "Kitchen Nightmares" already know this restaurant well, featured like it was in the show's season finale. Within minutes of co-owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo first appearing on screen, it became obvious that they're a pair of bullies and thieves who deserve any negative publicity they may get. (They pocket waiters' tips. They verbally abuse customers and employees. They can't cook pizza, and they won't admit it. The Amy's Baking Co. episode also will go down in history as the only time that "Kitchen Nightmares" host Gordon Ramsay essentially fled his own show.)
Of course, being thieves and bullies, the Bouzaglos have been on the attack ever since the Fox show aired, promising to tell "our »
'The Little Couple's' Bill Klein will dye your dog pink
10 hours ago
Zap2it: You and your wife, Dr. Jennifer Arnold, recently adopted 3-year-old William from China. How's he getting along with your dogs? (The couple have a 6-year-old Chihuahua named Rocky and a 2 1/2-year-old terrier named Maggie.)
Bill Klein: At first, they were not good towards William when he came into the house. Three-year-olds grab; they swing; they slap. We showed him how to fist-bump. That was a mistake. He fist-bumped the dog's face. It was funny ... for a second.
But they're getting used to him. We knew we had to deal with it. We had hired a dog trainer a few weeks before we left for China, hoping we could wrangle in some quick tips, maybe figure out some magical pill we could give the dog to embrace kids.
Zap2it: You were in medical devices; now, you own a pet store in Houston called Rocky and Maggie's Petshop. »
'Dancing With the Stars' costumes get played by ear on a weekly basis
11 hours ago
We watch "Dancing With the Stars" for new routines and possible missteps and for those creations of sequins, fluff, silk and spandex.
Roughly 700 new costumes are made each season, taking into account every costume change for backup dancers as well as the contestants, say Daniella Gschwendtner and Steven Norman Lee, the show's designing team.
"We don't get to prep much ahead, and it depends on their songs," Gschwendtner tells Zap2it.
"We shop fresh every week because you never know what you are going to get," Lee says.
They listen to the dancers' plans. Then, as the pro and the celeb work on choreography, Gschwendtner, Lee and their staff sketch, shop and sew.
"A lot of it is considering their song," Lee says. "If it is a fun, edgy song, then we can do that, or if it is a classic tribute to someone's daughter, we follow the song and music, »
'Suits' Season 3 spoiler roundup: Harvey dumps Mike, Mike dates Rachel and more
11 hours ago
"Suits" will return with new Season 3 episodes this summer, and everything will be different.
There's really no way around that after the Season 2 finale, "War," fundamentally altered the firm (Jessica took on a new name partner, passing over Harvey), Harvey and Mike's relationship, and the potential romance between Mike and Rachel.
Where is all of this going? A few, fairly vague spoilers point out the direction.
In an interview with ETonline.com, the show's actors spilled a lot of the directions seen in Season 3.
First of all, things will be very, very bad between Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Mike (Patrick J. Adams). Their disagreement from the Season 2 finale doesn't go away -- it only escalates. "Harvey lets Mike go. He's done with him," Macht said. "Mike asks for forgiveness but Harvey doesn't want any of it."
Harvey is so over Mike, in fact, that he is willing to let the »
'Arrested Development' Rewatch Season 3, episode 9 - 'S.O.B.s'
12 hours ago
Welcome to "Arrested Development" Rewatch. Leading up to the release of Season 4, Zap2it will be taking a look back at the 53 episodes that made "Ad" one of our most beloved TV comedies. Watch the first three seasons of "Arrested Development" on Netflix. Today we're covering the ninth episode of Season 3, "Mr. F," which premiered Jan. 2, 2006.
"Arrested Development" has always been a self-aware show, but none of its episodes are quite as tongue-in-cheek as "S.O.B.s." Airing a month after the third season's episode order had been cut nearly in half, "S.O.B.s" is a satirical attempt to win over more viewers by making the characters more relatable, having them develop, offering up problems with clear solutions and employing viewer-grabbing tactics like a live finale, celebrity guest stars and 3D effects -- basically, mocking the problems people had found with the series up until that point. »
'Dancing with the Stars' Season 16 finale: Winner predictions and technical difficulties
12 hours ago
On Tuesday night, viewers will find out who will be the "Dancing with the Stars" Season 16 champion. It really could be anyone -- Kellie Pickler, Zendaya, Aly Raisman and Jacoby Jones all have a shot at that Mirror Ball. So who will it be?
And did fans really get the chance to vote legitimately after the ABC.com voting page went down?
Who will win "DWTS" Season 16?
Usually, there is at least one finalist on "Dancing with the Stars" who can't or who shouldn't win. That's not exactly the case in Season 16. Some of the dancers are more likely than others to win, but anyone is a possibility.
Throughout the whole season, Kellie and Derek have been consistently good. The pair has never had a truly bad week -- when your one misstep is Len not liking the dance, you know things are good. »

12 hours ago
Tyler has a problem in Thursday's (May 23) episode of "Men at Work," and that problem's name is Gibbs.
Tyler, as you might imagine, has a little trouble processing the information that his friend and co-worker once had a threesome with his new love (guest star Stephanie Lemelin). So much so, in fact, that Gibbs is starting to get inside Tyler's head, as you can see in the clip (which is exclusive to Zap2it) below.
"Men at Work" airs at 10 p.m. Et Thursday on TBS. Watch the clip:
Ke$ha drinks her own urine in 'My Crazy Beautiful Life' clip
12 hours ago
Ke$ha is no stranger to bizarre behavior, which is why it shouldn't have shocked fans incredibly much when she revealed recently that she drank her own urine. The scene was caught on camera for the pop star's reality series "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," and a clip from the episode has been released that gives some context for why she chose to consume her own bodily fluid.
"Now it's time to switch gears, because I have a music video to make," Ke$ha says in the above video. "I want to get in kicka** shape and look da** hot, and I'll try just about anything."
One of those things involved sampling her own urine when one of her friends told her that it's supposedly healthy. The above clip doesn't show the actual act of Ke$ha drinking the pee, but we know from her interview with The Hollywood »
'The Lead': From Gosnell to Newtown to Boston to Oklahoma, Jake Tapper asks, 'Is anyone listening to this?'
12 hours ago
In the tense hours overnight from Thursday, April 18, to Friday, April 19, after Boston Marathon bombing suspects and brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsnarnev engaged in a shootout with police -- and after the murder of MIT police Officer Sean Collier -- Jake Tapper essentially was CNN.
"I was anchoring," he tells Zap2it, talking on Thursday (May 16), "from something like 1:30 in the morning till 9:30 in the morning. That was a crazy night."
With photos of the suspects circulating, Tapper stayed on his iPad, following news and social-media reports and listening to the local police scanners, via a link provided to by followers to his popular Twitter feed, @jaketapper.
"I reached out to the CNN news desk," he recalls, "and said, 'Is anyone listening to this?' This is one in the morning. 'Is anyone listening to this? Something serious is going on.'"

'Bates Motel' Season 2 preview: More of Norman and Norma's relatives on the way
12 hours ago
The Season 1 finale left us with so many questions -- Did Norman actually kill Miss Watson? Or is her death connected to other dangerous elements of White Pine Bay? Who was Bradley's father having an affair with? What's Sheriff Romero really up to? And what exactly happened in Norma's past? -- and of course the powers that be won't give us answers, because that would spoil the fun.
Here's what executive producer Carlton Cuse and stars Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot and Nestor Carbonell were able to tease about Season 2 before the recent "Bates Motel" event at the Paley Center in Los Angeles.

Xbox One: Live action 'Halo' TV series coming from Steven Spielberg and 343 Industries
12 hours ago
Microsoft and 343 Industries are bringing "Halo" to the small screen with the help of a very exciting partner. Steven Spielberg has teamed with those companies to develop a live action television series adaptation of the best-selling video game. It will be released as premium content on the new Microsoft gaming console, Xbox One.
"For me, 'Halo' has always been more than a game. It's an amazing experience that takes place in a rich and deeply connected sci-fi universe, a universe in which we can tell hundreds of stories. We tell these stories through our games, our novels and most recently our award-winning web series 'Forward Unto Dawn,'" 343 Industries' Bonnie Ross says during Microsoft's presentation.
