As many know, the NBC reality series America’s Got Talent has hired the great radio show host, Howard Stern, as a judge. Stern will replace talk journalist Piers Morgan, who departed the talent show to focus on his news talk show on CNN.
When it was announced that Stern would join the show, many family advocate groups were appalled claiming that Stern shouldn’t have been allowed to be on the series due to what some say is his outrageous behavior. While at the X Factor finale, we spoke to judge Simon Cowell (who produces AMGT) and he told us exclusively what we can expect from Stern.
Stern will definitely add an element to the show which we think will excite the audience. America’s Got Talent returns for its seventh season this Summer on NBC.
After four seasons and 105 episodes, the Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place, which made Selena Gomez a star, comes to an end when its series finale airs tomorrow night 8/7 central on the Disney Channel.

Beverly Hills, CA – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has produced its trailer for the 84th Academy Awards in conjunction with Funny Or Die. The trailer features host Billy Crystal and celebrity cameo appearances by Robin Williams, Josh Duhamel, Megan Fox, William Fichtner and Vinnie Jones.

Academy Award-winner Steven Spielberg is one of the most acclaimed and beloved directors in movie history. Having helmed such films as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saving Private Ryan, and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Spielberg has successfully conquered many genres and shown the kind of versatility most directors can only dream of.
His latest films, War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin, which are in theatres now, have received rave reviews from critics and audiences. Having made some of the best films the big screen has ever seen, Spielberg explains that he still gets inspired to make films today; however, he doesn’t look for inspiration, he lets it find him.
Sure, there are plenty of female cops on TV, but it’s rare to find a successful crime drama show with two women in the lead roles. ABC’s “Body of Proof,” starring Jeri Ryan and Dana Delany, has proven to be an exception. Ryan notes that, although the show certainly has its share of male admirers, women seem to be the show’s biggest fans. And she’s proud to be on a quality show that portrays its leading characters as strong role models for younger women.
A new episode of “Body of Proof” airs tonight at 10/9 central on ABC.
