Reporter congratulates Perry…on cancellation of his show. Fail.
Networks announce a multitude of cancelled shows. NBC’s Smash and ABC’s Happy Endings get the boot.
Once the most successful show on television, Fox Network’s American Idol is currently experiencing its worst ratings ever.
NBC’s The Voice has consistently won the key 18-49 demographic in the music competition battle this season. And on Thursday night, Idol was dealt quite possibly its biggest blow by an unlikely foe:
As the entire internet knows, Disney is making a new Star Wars movie. The plot is one of the biggest secrets in the world right now, but maybe Disney should take some pointers from Patton Oswalt, in his improvised outtake from NBC’s Parks and Recreation.
In what might have amounted to history’s lamest publicity attempt, Parks and Recreation regular Aubrey Plaza stage-bombed Will Ferrell as he accepted the MTV Movie Award’s Comedic Genius prize on Sunday night.
The Chickeneers (Jimmy Fallon, Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, and some other guy) were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last week, performing their own version of The Lumineers’ hit song “Ho Hey”.

Deep down he’s a loveable guy.
He loves meat.
Did we mention he loves meat?

After Associated Press announced Tuesday they will no longer use the term ‘illegal immigrant,’ NBC’s Tonight Show host Jay Leno poked fun at the decision. As reported by Newsbusters, a conservative media watchdog blog, the comedian joked:
Bryan Stelter of the New York Times reports — based on “three people with knowledge of the call” — that an NBC executive asked CNN’s Anderson Cooper if he would consider replacinng Matt Lauer as host of the Today show. This strategic leak (which the peacock network officially denied to the Hollywood Reporter) may just be an attempt to haggle down Lauer’s reported $25 million-a-year salary on a contract that is up for renewal next year.
NBC has had its fair share of problems in recent years with its ‘late night’ talk shows, especially with boisterous hosts and strong personalities. The debacle with Conan O’Brien only scratches the surface when discussing the issues that NBC has struggled with when referencing its late night talk shows, hosts, and mediocre ratings.
