Report: ABC Closes American Idol Deal, Ryan Seacrest Eyed to Return
The votes are in, and the decision is final: American Idol is coming back to TV… this time, on ABC.

The network has nailed down the framework of a deal to reboot the hit singing competition, according to a report from our sister site Variety. ABC had to outbid Idol‘s original network Fox to secure the right to revive the franchise, the rights to which are still controlled by production company Fremantle Media. It helps that ABC already airs two Fremantle productions: Match Game and Celebrity Family Feud.

25 years ago today: ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ opened in theaters

25 years ago today: ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ opened in theaters
25 years ago today, audiences first saw Kevin Costner’s turn as Robin Hood on the big screen. It was on June 14, 1991 that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves opened in theaters. Facing off against Costner’s heroic outlaw was Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, just three years after he made his first movie appearance in a role that would become a new classic villain, Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Rickman and Morgan Freeman got critical approval for their performances. Costner and Christian Slater, not so much. Both were nominated for Golden Raspberry Awards for Robin Hood, for Worst Actor and Worst Supporting Actor, respectively. Costner “won” his award, while Slater “lost” to Dan Ackroyd in Nothing but Trouble. Also part of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ legacy: “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You.” Believe it or not, the theme ballad that Bryan Adams bleated out for this movie earned him an Oscar nomination. But Raspberries or no Raspberries, Oscars or no Oscars, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves found its audience. It was the second-highest grossing movie of 1991, beaten only by Terminator 2: Judgement Day. And it was viewed countless times on VHS for years after that. Other notable June 14 happenings in pop culture history: • 1940: Jimmy Stewart film The Mortal Storm opened in theaters. • 1958: The indoor Alice in Wonderland ride opened next to the Mad Tea Party teacups ride in Disneyland. It was also the day the Columbia Sailing Ship first took passengers around Tom Sawyer Island. • 1959: The Matterhorn Bobsleds, Submarine Voyage, and the Monorail opened at Disneyland. Over 2,000 celebrities, members of the press, and dignitaries attended, including Vice President Richard Nixon. • 1965: Paul McCartney recorded the song “Yesterday” at what is now known as Abbey Road Studios in London. McCartney recorded it without the rest of the group, just with a string quartet, his vocals, and an acoustic guitar, making it essentially the first solo performance by the band. He recorded the song in two takes. • 1969: John Lennon and Yoko Ono pre-recorded an interview with David Frost that would air on July 10 that year. Lennon said in the interview, “We're trying to sell peace, like a product, you know, and sell it like people sell soap or soft drinks.” • 1970: Eric Clapton’s new band, Derek and the Dominos, gave their first live performance, at London’s Lyceum Theatre. • 1972: Simon & Garfunkel reunited to perform “Bridge Over Troubled Water” at a fundraising concert for presidential candidate George McGovern at New York’s Madison Square Garden. • 1980: The Pretenders fired bassist Pete Farndon, whose drug use had led to an increasingly strained relationship with his bandmates. • 1980: Billy Joel began six weeks atop the Billboard album chart with Glass Houses. • 1985: Family Feud, which had debuted in 1976, aired its final episode on ABC until CBS re-launched the game show in 1988. • 1989: The game Tetris was released for Game Boy in Japan. A North American release followed in July. • 1990: CBS, which had been the national broadcaster for the NBA since 1973, televised an NBA game for the final time. It was Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Detroit Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers. • 1996: Jim Carrey movie The Cable Guy opened in U.S. and Canadian theaters. • 2002: The Bourne Identity and the Sarah Michelle Gellar Scooby-Doo movie opened in theaters. • 2003: Helen Mirren had the order of Dame bestowed upon her when Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II published the list of those she’d chosen to promote to the Order of the British Empire. Three years later, Mirren portrayed Elizabeth II on film in The Queen. Sting and 007 actor Roger Moore were also conferred with the title of “Sir” on this day. • 2011: Andy Grammer released his self-titled debut studio album. Birthdays: Juno writer Diablo Cody (turns 38 today), singer Boy George (55), Reign actor Torrance Coombs (33), Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale (27), actor-motivational speaker J.R.

Joel McHale Talks Soup's Live Nascar 'Coup,' Realizing an X-Files Dream
When E!’s The Soup airs a live, hour-long episode from Talladega Superspeedway this Friday (10/9c), it’ll be one of the most artful examples of drafting that Nascar has ever seen.

Stock-car racing is “one of the biggest sports in the country. It’s even bigger than baseball. So, just for that factor alone, we want to be near them,” host and comedian Joel McHale tells TVLine a few days before the broadcast. “Just the fact that they are allowing us to do it is a coup.

Saturday Night Live, Season 41, Episode 3, “Tracy Morgan/Demi Lovato

Airs Saturdays at 11:30 pm Et on NBC (East coast version watched for review)

Host: All Tracy Morgan had to do was stand up on stage and crack a few jokes. Nobody had any right to expect Morgan to reach the kind of lunatic heights he did in his prime. But to watch Morgan come on SNL tonight, trot out all of his old staples from the show, and absolutely slay is one of the warmest, most uplifting moments to air in the history of TV. It’s an incredibly hard thing to articulate, because to just talk about how funny Tracy is tonight is bad writing, as is just listing adjectives for how inspiring his recovery is. But that’s the draw of it: Tonight is Tracy Morgan’s comeback and he’s still funnier than everyone else. Morgan’s

Saturday Night Live Recap: Tracy Morgan Hosts
For episode three, our host is former cast member and 30 Rock superstar Tracy Morgan. Morgan was in a serious car accident, which left him in critical condition, just sixteen months ago. In good news for comedy fans everywhere, Tracy has since made a full recovery, and in the last year he got married, made a wonderful speech at the Emmys, and is now hosting SNL. Yay! I’m very excited to see where this episode goes. Democratic Debate: The top five candidates for the Democratic ticket take part in a debate hosted by Anderson Cooper. This one was a bit long perhaps, but it was a strong opening to the episode and maybe the funniest political sketch yet this season.

Rain came down hard on Friday, Oct. 9, in New York and with it a deluge of hungry fans waiting to see their favorite characters from AMC’s “The Walking Dead” at iconic Madison Square Garden, nearly filling the entire arena and aligning perfectly with New York Comic-Con happening just blocks away.

In the lobby areas, fans were greeted with rolling behind-the-scenes clips, a life-size Daryl Dixon with his motorcycle, a replica of The Governor’s human head aquarium and best of all, walkers milling about the crowd scaring unsuspecting fans. Those brave enough stopped to take selfies with the “creatures.” Several fans dressed up as zombies, favorite characters and their own interpretations of horror.

Tonight's premiere was merely the latest promotional appearance for Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the cast having had a media blitz in the Us in recent weeks.

Downey, Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner celebrated the sequel last week with an hour-long interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, in which they played Family Feud and answered audience questions.

The cast will extend their UK promotion duties with a group appearance on The Graham Norton Show later this week.
