Brian Bradley, aka The Astronomical Kid, the 14-year-old 'X-Factor' contestant who got into a confrontation with Simon Cowell after performing his song 'Stop Looking at My Mom!,' dropped by 'Good Day NY' (weekdays, 9 AM ET on Fox) to squash the beef.

ABC Greenlights Comedy from 'Scrubs' Writers

It seems like Steve McPherson and company haven't been deterred by the poor ratings of 'Scrubs,' since he's ordered a pilot from two of the show's writers.

'How to Be a Better American' is about a middle-aged man who goes on a journey to be a better man, dragging his unwilling family along with him. It's a single-camera comedy that will be run by Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley, longtime members of Team Lawrence; they will also be writing the pilot.
