Jersey Shore is
finally ending after six epic seasons. MTV confirmed that the upcoming season will be its final, meaning it’ll be the last time you can seriously indulge in conversations about hairspray, GTL, DTF and other acronyms that you never fully understood.
While we’re not particularly happy to say bon voyage to the cast (it’s a guilty pleasure) we can’t really imagine them trading beer funnels for baby bottles and going to Club Karma to hook up… with their serious, significant other.
The final season starts on Oct. 4 on MTV but there will be a commemorative retrospective on Sept. 6 called “Gym, Tan, Look Back.” Still, we’re pretty sure this won’t be the last you see of them — some will probably continue filming their spin-off shows while others will inevitably score a sausage infomercial or two.
Are you sad to see the show go or relieved you’ll never have to see The Situation’s abs ever again?
A person has been killed and several injured as a result of a massive stage collapse in Toronto just an hour before Radiohead’s sold-out show in Downsview Park.
While no band members were believed to be on the stage at the time, concert crew were working in the area at the time.
As a result of the incident, Radiohead cancelled their performance.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Radiohead show at Downsview Park tonight has been cancelled,” the band said on Twitter. “Fans are advised not to make their way to the venue.”
This is truly an unfortunate situation. My thoughts go out to anyone affected by the incident.
Rick Ross’ show in Greensboro, North Carolina will be cancelled tonight, although earlier reports said the show would go on.
TMZ says the deputy director of the Coliseum confirmed Rick will not be performing, but offered no further explanation.
As andPOP reported yesterday, Ross suffered a brain seizure on Friday which landed him in the hospital.
NYmag reports the reason for the cancellation is terrible ratings.
However, a rep for the show tells TMZ, “The show just recently completed its run and no pick up decision has been made.”
TMZ reports the reason for the cancellation is MTV big wigs wants a fresh cast of characters for the network.
There is some suggestion that the Jersey Shore franchise will continue, except with a brand new cast of characters, which will hopefully be cheaper.
However, we may have spoken too soon regarding the departure of Snooki. Evidentially Snooki, The Situation, JWOWW, all have spinoff deals with MTV.
MTV has canceled the controversial teen drama ‘Skins,’ reports CTV.
The show won’t be back for another season, so says the network, because it “didn’t connect with a U.S. audience as much as we had hoped,” MTV spokesman Nathaniel Brown says.
The short-lived show received heavy criticism for its racy nature and use of drug, alcohol and sex that were prominent on the show. Many groups felt the young actors violated child pornography laws and advertisers began pulling their commercials from the series.
‘Skins’ premiered in January as an American version of the British hit, but an initial audience of 3.3 million viewers sank to 1.2 million viewers for the season finale.
Another one bites the dust – will you miss it? I never got into the show, but I heard that the American version was never as good as the British series.
Fox is cancelling its long-running crime-stopping series ’America’s Most Wanted,’ reports Entertainment Weekly.
The series, which profiles men and women wanted by law enforcement agencies, has been on the air since 1988 and consistently wins its time period. A few years ago it announced the capture of its 1,000th criminal. The show is legendary – but it doesn’t seem to be enough.
The show will still have a presence on Fox next season, with the network airing four quarterly two-hour specials, but the Saturday night slots will otherwise be replaced by repeats. Really Fox?
Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly told reporters on Monday that the show was no longer profitable. “John Walsh has been an important guy at network for a long time,” Reilly says. “It’s been an important show for us historically. We haven’t made money on the show in quite awhile. It wasn’t particularly viable. We wanted to keep the franchise alive. John is having conversations about ways to keep the series alive.”
“We’re going to be in originals across our schedule,” Reilly says. “We want to be able to play repeats to give the audience a chance to catch up and that’s one of the few places we can do that.”
The show averaged 5 million viewers this season and a 1.7 rating in the adult demo, which is still pretty impressive for a Saturday night. The show was perfect for those boring Saturday nights, so I don’t know what many middle-aged parents will do now. Will you miss the show?
Apparently real housewives in D.C. aren’t very interesting. Washington Post reports that Bravo officially pulled the plug on the ‘The Real Housewives of D.C.’ Thursday.
Andy Cohen of Bravo said, “We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise. I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity.”
Is this really a great loss for TV? Probably not. In fact the world may be better off if the whole franchise is cancelled. Here’s hoping!
In a message to RadarOnline.com, Sheen called the decision “crazy” and “sad” and said that he was moving to HBO to do his own half-hour show titled ‘Sheen’s Corner.’ The deal would reportedly get him $5 million for an episode.
Sheen reportedly said, “I’m close to securing a deal with HBO for a 10 show guarantee. It will be epic, all types of guests, and we will focus on the truth and the absurd!” Radar notes that HBO could not be contacted for comment.
So is Charlie bull sh**ing or do you think HBO is a real alternative?
Perez Hilton is reporting that contrary to what British papers have been reporting all weekend, Glenn Close is definitely not working on a Susan Boyle Biopic.
Why? Because no such movie is in the works!!
Close’s reps were a little slow to jump on the denial train but they eventually got there, claiming that the whole thing is “complete rubbish.”
Thank God! Both of the ladies are very talented individuals but that sounds like the most boring movie ever not shot. Maybe next time, SuBo!
Radar Online is reporting that stunt man Samuel Koch was supposed to jump over a moving car using special kangaroo suspension shoes, but instead hit the vehicle and crashed to the ground. Broadcast was immediately halted and Koch was rushed to the hospital.
WTF? What kind of game show is this, Germany?!
With Koch in “extremely critical condition,” Bieber asked his fans to pray for the injured man, adding “some things are more important than a show.”
Knowing how clinically insane the Bieberheads are, we wouldn’t be surprised if the ailing Koch got some nasty letters from fans. Sad! Hopefully we’re wrong on that hypothesis.
Our thoughts are with Samuel Koch!
Things are not looking good for Will Arnett’s newest show, Running Wilde.
Perez Hilton reports that Arnett, along with the show’s stars, have taken to popular microblogging site Twitter in order to support a grassroots effort to keep the Fox show on the air.
The show follows Arnett’s character, a narcissistic billionaire, as he tries to win back his high school love.
Fans started a Twitter petition last week, but things are not looking good at the network. Though 13 episodes of the show have been ordered, Fox has elected to show back-to-back episodes of Raising Hope instead of a new Wilde episode.
Geez! First you drop Arrested Development, then you turn down Conan, and now you’re thinking of cancelling Running Wilde? What’s wrong with you, Fox? Too busy running your pseudo-funny cash cow, Glee, into the ground? We saw that awkward lesbian scene last episode and it made NO FREAKIN’ SENSE in context or otherwise!
Click here to sign the petition and save Running Wilde from cancellation.
“Her doctor advised her not to sing due to a severe throat infection,” her rep says in a statement to PEOPLE. “Susan is very upset at letting her fans down. Their continued support means so much to her.”
The newest James Bond movie, James Bond 23, has officially been cancelled, Perez Hilton reports.
MGM Studios is going bankrupt and cannot afford to make the movie. It was to be directed by Sam Mendes and once again star Daniel Craig as the badass title role.
MGM is apparently looking for a new buyer to finance the film, but until then they will be canceling scheduled productions, or at the very least postponing them indefinitely. The Hobbit still appears to be on the go-ahead, though.
Bilbo sure dodged that bullet!
Could Jimmy Fallon be the next Conan O’Brien? Rumors are circulating that the “Late Night” host could be next on the chopping block at NBC due to sagging ratings, according to the New York Post.
Nielsen ratings have indicated that viewership for Fallon’s late-night talk show has dropped 20 per cent since this time last year. Additionally Fallon is being killed by his competition at CBS and ABC.
“NBC executives are concerned about the ratings drop and are doing all they can to promote Fallon,” one insider told the Post. “They’re even dragging him out of bed in the morning to do the Today show to promote his own show.”
However NBC still maintain that they support Jimmy Fallon and are pleased with the show’s performance. A spokesperson for the network said, “We are huge Jimmy Fallon fans and could not be happier with his performance. Fallon continues to win night after night in the key demographic.”
Big-named actors from the action sequel such as Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L Jackson were all due to fly to London for the event, which was supposed to be held yesterday (Monday, April 19).
Unfortunately, because of the restricted air travel due to ash clouds from the eruption of Iceland’s volcano Eyjafjallajökull, that was no longer possible.
The cheque for Corey Haim’s funeral has been cancelled by celebrity memorabilia company Startifacts, reports TMZ.
Startifacts initially committed $20,000 to help cover some of Haim’s funeral expenses. However after emails with Haim’s brother-in-law Mark Alexander, the company learned that the money was being put towards Haim’s mom’s cancer treatment and the funeral home covered Corey’s funeral expenses.
A rep for Judy Haim says that Judy’s cancer treatments were covered and there has been some type of miscommunication. Nevertheless Starifacts is not sending another cheque.
She is the hardest working woman in show business, but that stress level seems to be taking its toll on Lady Gaga. Days after crumpling to the floor during a New Zealand concert, Lady Gaga took to the airwaves to explain what happened.
“I was so jet lagged,” she told the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Friday. “I passed out about three times on stage that night but I got myself to the floor. I’d rather die on stage than walk off because I was going to pass out.”
Guns N’ Roses fans are certainly a dedicated bunch and they don’t like to be disappointed. Axl Rose and his crew cancelled a show in Sao Paula, Brazil on Saturday (March 13) which resulted in a riot, according to chartattack.com.
The crowd apparently waited until 3am but were then told GNR would not be performing according to the New York Post.
“The audience got angry and started to mount the stage, and fight and destroy everything,” a witness told the newspaper. “It was wild. There were fights everywhere, on the dance floor, in the bathrooms, outside the club. Crazy. I guess the free drinks didn’t help.”
So why was the show cancelled? Apparently on Saturday someone in the audience tried to bottle Axl. This understandably infuriated the singer and he called the show to a halt.
After only one show, Akon has quit his gig hosting a radio show at a London radio station, reports Perez Hilton. He was supposed to host a two-hour slot every Saturday, but following the February 13 premiere, a previous host took over.
“Due to Akon’s commitments, including working on a brand new album, we won’t be broadcasting a regular show on 95.8 Capital FM for the time being,” said a spokesperson for the station. “Our conversations about future shows are ongoing as we explore other opportunities that may work for both of us.”
