A few years ago, Fox had some of the top-rated TV shows on the air. Now, the network is struggling. Which series will be cancelled and which will be renewed? Stay tuned.

How do the execs decide what to cancel or keep? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play a very large role. The higher the ratings, the better chances a show has of surviving.

The Voice Top 8 Performance Recap: No Good Note Goes Unpunished

16 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I wasn’t planning on watching the Mayweather-Pacquiao boxing match this weekend — I’m more of a Kentucky Derby kinda guy, to be honest — but I can’t imagine it being much bloodier than Top 8 Performance Night on The Voice.

Look, there’s no denying that Season 8 of NBC’s reality singing competition is as jam-packed with talent as Kim Kardashian’s pencil skirts are heaving with badonkadonk. It’s just that, with two more performers headed for a dinner date at The Rancor‘s basement apartment on Tuesday night, it seemed like nearly everyone was swinging hickory bats at melodies requiring butterfly-wing delicacy. »

Following Recap: Easy Come, Easy Poe

The following recap contains spoilers from Monday’s episode of The Following.

“Quoth the raven: Nevermore.” And boy, does that bird mean it in regard to this week’s episode of The Following… as in, “Nevermore will Joe Carroll terrorize Ryan Hardy, because he’s very, very dead.”

After three seasons, many victims, countless liters of blood and one risen-from-the-ashes comeback, the Edgar Allan Poe-quoting serial killer made like Annabel Lee and died.

For good, this time. Here’s how it all goes down.

Thanks to the development of at-home manicure systems, we don't have to have a personal manicurist on hand—or at the salon—in order to reap gel benefits.

FremantleMedia Shakeup: Thom Beers Out, 2 Promoted to co-ceo

23 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Thom Beers is set to exit as CEO of FremantleMedia North America after three years in the post. He’ll be replaced by exec VPs Jennifer Mullin and Craig Cegielski, who have been promoted to co-CEOs of the production company behind “American Idol,” “America’s Got Talent” and a host of other series.

Beers is a veteran producer who sold his Original Prods. to Fremantle in 2010 and two years later moved into the top job. He’s likely to return to the producing trenches.

Is Tiësto’s Your Shot USA A Surefire Hit?

27 April 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tiësto has announced Your Shot USA, an elimination-based reality game show in which 30 contestants train and compete for a chance to perform alongside the producer/DJ in Las Vegas and at Ultra Music Festival 2016. The original Your Shot program premiered on Australian television in 2010, and has famously included DJs as well as enthusiastic fans with little or no experience alike.

When word broke that Simon Cowell would attempt the same thing with Ultimate DJ, a program in the vein of American Idol geared towards the electronic music scene, everyone from Insomniac to Fatboy Slim came down on the concept. While Tiësto certainly commands more respect within the dance music community than Cowell does, his reputation as a sellout in light of his shift away from trance in recent years could have an adverse effect on perceptions of the show.

Tell us, what do you think of Tiësto‘s Your Shot USA? »

TV Review: ‘Wayward Pines’

24 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Adapted from Blake Crouch’s novels with an M. Night Shyamalan-directed pilot, “Wayward Pines” suggests various series – “Twin Peaks” and “Lost” come to mind – but may owe its closest debt to “The Prisoner,” the 1960s cult favorite that featured a spy confined in a strange village from which there appeared to be no exit. Perfectly suited to a 10-part limited run, this Fox show has capitalized on its concentrated approach to cast the project to the hilt, with the disclaimer that viewers shouldn’t become too attached to anyone. All told, it’s a solid TV version of summer popcorn fare.

Matt Dillon stars as Ethan Burke, a Secret Service agent pursuing leads on two missing colleagues in the idyllic, titular Idaho town. The assignment is complicated by the fact that one of the wayward agents is his former partner, Kate (Carla Gugino), with whom he had an affair. »

So it makes perfect sense that the American Idol judge would be flaunting some killer décolletage while grabbing dinner with her on-again beau, Casper Smart. The stunning songstress was spotted wearing a Blumarine low-cut multicolored gown that highlighted all her famous curves. And while the frock was completely sheer, J.Lo made sure to wear a pair of black booty shorts underneath so that nothing showed through. Meanwhile, Smart rocked a baggy sweatshirt, bucket hat and was sporting a goatee for the dinner outing in Los Angeles. Lopez posted a shot of herself dancing in the »
