Filed under: TV NewsDonald Trump

Can't say we agree with giving him this much money! This season of Celebrity Apprentice wasn't THAT good!

NBC has inked a new contract with Donald Trump that will keep him on board to host his reality series for another two years. The network agreed to pay Trump and co-producer Mark Burnett an estimated - wait for it - $160 million for their trouble.

Can you stand it? Even if they split that, that's like $79 million more dollars than he deserves for this gig. He's almost a billionaire! What kind of sense is this supposed to make???

Oh, and did we mention that with this new deal, Trump becomes

Filed under: AwardzJane Lynch

Its official!

FOX made the official announcement this afternoon that Jane Lynch will be hosting the 63rd Primetime Emmys this year in September!

The Glee star, in her statement, raves that she was "tickled pink" to be asked to host and reveals she is "looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit.” HA!

Mark Burnett, executive producer of the awards show, shared in her excitement with his statement, saying:

“Jane was my first – and only – choice as the host for this year’s Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said ‘yes,’. She has incredible comedic timing, and is a charismatic, talented actress whose energy leaps off the screen and stage. I am thrilled and excited to have her as our host.”

As are we! As is everyone!!! Jimmy Fallon did an exceptional job with his opening last year - but we think Jane might be able to top it! We have faith in you, Jane! Let's see what you've got!

Survivor Producer Mark Burnett To Take On The Bible!

Filed under: TV NewsSarah PalinReality TV

survivor producer takes on the bible

Quite an ambitious project for the reality producer!

Survivor/The Apprentice/Sarah Palin's Alaska producer Mark Burnett is putting together a 5-part, 10-hour religious docu-drama based on The Bible, which will air on The History Channel in 2013.

Here's what History Channel president/general manager Nancy Dubuc had to say about the project:

"This is probably the most important book in mankind, regardless of your beliefs or religious affiliation. This series will bring the historical stories of the Bible to life for a new generation."

"We spend a lot of time talking about this book, and probably not enough time knowing what's in it. One of the most important things about history is knowing the stories of history."

We agree that The Bible is a very important book…but are we 100% sure that a producer from Sarah Palin's reality show is the right guy to tell the story of the holy book?

Will U watch The Bible when it premieres in 2013? Do U think Mark Burnett is the right guy for this major project?

The Voice Ratings Drop In Week 3

Filed under: TV NewsChristina AguileraGlee

The Voice Ratings Drop

The Voice's ratings have dropped in week 3, for the beginning of the "battle round" episodes. Don't worry though! Even though the dip was pretty substantial, the show still easily won the night in the ratings war.

It even beat out Glee:

The Voice, which improved to 12.6 million total viewers and a 5.7 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic last week for the second part of the blind auditions, sank to 10.3 million and a 4.6 at 10 p.m. for the first of its battle rounds last night.

The Voice was down 19 percent in the key demo compared to the 9-11 p.m. telecast last week. Compared to last Tuesday’s 10 p.m. hour, the Mark Burnett-produced singing competition series dropped 22 percent. Still, The Voice easily topped the night as the highest-rated program (beating Glee) on Tuesday.

Not bad, but we gotta think that The Voice is still in its freshman year with a brand new competition, rules, and set of kinks to smooth out. There MIGHT be a fixable reason for this dip that they could immediate work out, or even work out if there's a next season!

Either way, people still obviously want to watch it, and those number aren't anything to be angry about!

Star Jones Speaks On Feud With NeNe and Lisa Rinna

star jones speaks

Star Jones seems to ALWAYS be involved in some sort of drama!

During a recent interview, Star spoke up about some of her issues with her peers.

Here's what Star had to say about NeNe Leakes' comments to the press saying that Jones is jealous that they're on the "same level" despite drastic differences in education:

"No no no. We're not on the same level. Lets make that clear. We're on the same show. This is the thing that everyone needs to understand. I didn't cast the show, Mr Trump and Mark Burnett and NBC cast the show. They cast the show based on what they thought would generate good ratings. This was not a show about friendship. It was a show about whether or not people from different backgrounds, experiences and level of stardom could co-exist for a team and then turn it in for an individual competition. I was very clear on my role in this show. In all honesty, I would never compare myself to another African-American woman. I would never tear down another African-American woman in order to elevate myself. Cream rises to the top and water seeks its own level."

And here's Star on how she made amends with her former View frenemy Rosie O'Donnell:

I would do anything in the world with Rosie! Rosie is one of the most magnificent talents that daytime television has ever seen, and I hated when we were having controversy and how much do I love that we decided to fix that. That's what grown women do when there's a controversy. You get together alone without a camera and you say, 'I had this problem with you,' and we fix it. And that's my girl and when you really want to have a long standing relationship. She's an amazingly-talented person, and I'd be honored to work with her doing anything, God knows.

We're glad to hear that, and we're sure Rosie would be too!

Now, all Star needs to do is work things out with NeNe and Lisa Rinna, and she'll be ALL set…

Do U think Star Jones will also make amends with NeNe and Lisa? Or will those feuds continue?

It's Official! Adam Levine And Cee-Lo Green Will Join NBC's The Voice

adam levine and cee lo green will join nbcs the voice

Last week, we learned that Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine were in talks to join NBC/Mark Burnett's singing competition series The Voice, which is based on the top-rated series from the Netherlands, The Voice of Holland.

Now, we've learned that Cee-Lo and Adam have officially signed on for the show!

Here's what Burnett had to say about it:

“I am so happy that Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green have joined the coach panel for The Voice. Aside from being incredible voices, they bring years of experience in the music industry and a really cool vibe that has never been seen before on a music competition series.”

As a reminder, The Voice's format consists of four coaches who listen to, but don't watch singers, and if they like the singer, they push a button that sends them to the next round, to be claimed as one of their "students."

If the singer is liked by more than one judge/coach, the singer is allowed to choose which one will coach them, and then coaches will have teams go head-to-head against each other.

The show premieres on Tuesday, April 26, and one judge/coach seat is still vacant. Guess we'll see if they choose Christina Aguilera, who is still in talks to join the show.

…If things don't work out with Xtina, they can always call us! As we said before, Perez would be a FANTASTIC judge/coach! Ha!

Are U happy that Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine were chosen as judges? Do U want to see Xtina as the third judge?

Adam Levine And Cee-Lo Green In Talks For NBC's The Voice! And Possibly Xtina too!

adam levine and cee lo green for nbcs the voice

Back in December we learned that Mark Burnett is developing a singing competition series The Voice for NBC, which is based on the top-rated series from the Netherlands, The Voice of Holland.

Burnett and NBC are currently in talks with Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine to join as judges.

There's also SOME talk that Christina Aguilera could be joining the show as well…but that should just be considered a rumor at this point. Inneresting rumor though…

NBC is hoping to close deals with Green and Levine this week, and then they'll sign on Xtina another judge next week.

As we mentioned before, The Voice's format consists of four coaches who listen to, but don't watch singers, and if they like the singer, they push a button that sends them to the next round, to be claimed as one of their "students."

If the singer is liked by more than one judge/coach, the singer is allowed to choose which one will coach them, and then coaches will have teams go head-to-head against each other.

This sounds pretty cool…and we'd STILL love to join the show as a judge/coach. Ha!

Are U excited for this show? Would U like to see Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine as judges?
