Many of Fox's series have already been renewed for another season. What does the future hold for the rest of their TV shows? Cancelled or renewed for 2014-15? We'll have to wait and see.
How does Fox decide what to cancel or renew? 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. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »
Dear Carson Daly,
It’s easy to understand the allure of claiming original American Idol Kelly Clarkson as a member of The Voice family — she did, after all, serve as a Season 2 advisor, and rocked the Season 5 stage tonight with a lively, lovely rendition of “Underneath the Tree.”
But dude, it’s imperative that you realize your cheeky elbowing of Fox’s reality-singing competition quickly crossed the line into creepy territory tonight after you grinningly declared to the pregnant diva that, “We feel like it’s our baby!” I’m surprised Ms. Clarkson didn’t drop her glittery red mic, »

Plus, how does Matthew plan to emerge victorious this season? Read HollywoodLife.com’s interview with ‘The Voice’ finalist!
The pride and joy of Team Christina, Matthew Schuler recently put his own unique spin on a little song you might have heard of, One Direction‘s “Story Of My Life.” The Pennsylvania native tackled 1D’s signature ditty Dec. 2 on The Voice, and even though he powered through with flying colors, he admitted to HollywoodLife.com that he was fearful of Directioners’ wrath.
Here’s what he told us when we caught up with him after the live show:
When Christina throws me a challenge, I like to meet her on it. I was excited to do it! But everything in my head was that One Direction has the biggest fan base in the world, and I didn’t want the Directioners to come and kill me! Hopefully I did it justice, »

When it comes to warm fuzzies, good vibrations and positive feedback, The Voice has a coaching panel that’s second to none.
Nevertheless, if you listen verrrrry carefully, you can hear their withering subtext, their coded messages to the viewing public in favor of one contestant or in opposition to another.
Take Blake Shelton’s repeated mentions tonight that it’s not just about hitting big notes full-on (a subtle put-down of Jacquie Lee?) or Adam Levine essentially telling Matthew Schuler he peaked with his Top 12 week cover of “Hallelujah.”

Co-founder James Welsh must evolve popular website in the face of competition from Buzzfeed and Mashable
Starting life as an amalgam of popular message boards covering burning topics of the late 1990s such as cable TV and DVDs, Digital Spy is a survivor of the first wave of UK dotcom startups. James Welsh, who co-founded the site while at school and is still yet to hit 30, now finds himself having to evolve Digital Spy in the face of a new range of competitors such as Buzzfeed and Mashable.
Digital Spy is having a good year: monthly users have hit 24 million, up 30% year-on-year, which in turn has fuelled advertising growth that will see revenues up by a fifth over 2012. Yet figuring out exactly where the entertainment and technology website fits in the new digital era of social media and mobile content consumption is a tricky task.

The 16-year-old hinted at behind-the-scenes troubles in the run-up to the two consecutive performance shows where she forgot her words, describing the period as her "time to just cry".
She explained to DS: "Because I'm new to this process I don't really know what to expect and I'm still learning, so I think I just let everything get on top of me and I didn't really know to handle it.
"Those two weeks were my time to just cry. The stress got me during that time, but I've picked myself up and I'm feeling a lot better now."
Tamera Foster thinks Luke Friend ''deserved'' to beat her to a place in 'The X Factor' semi-final. The 16-year-old songstress was the latest hopeful to be eliminated from the ITV singing competition last night (01.12.13) following a tense sing-off with Luke, and she admits his powerful rendition of Snow Patrol's 'Run' earned him a place in next week's penultimate live shows - even if it came at her expense. She told Bang Showbiz exclusively: ''I feel like Luke did deserve to go through judging on the sing-off. For me, that performance was amazing. I was literally shaking watching his performance - not »
Being a child star means growing up fast, but for Demi Lovato, being her family's breadwinner came with a hefty price, the former Disney star tells Nylon. Lovato, 21, who ended up in rehab in 2010, admits that since she had grown-up responsibilities, she thought she could act like a grown-up, too. "My parents tried to control me, but I'd be like, 'Oh really, I'm grounded? Well, I pay the bills,' " she says. "They did the best they could. And I think that's why a lot of young stars struggle when they're making money or providing for their family." The X Factor judge, »
