British Tabloid Simultaneously Reports Existence of New Piers Morgan Show and Says It's on Hold

Piers MorganThe phone-hacking scandal that's engulfing News Corp.'s assets in the U.K. is threatening to take down another high-profile figure.

The British tabloid 'The Daily Star' is reporting that 'America's Got Talent' judge Piers Morgan may have lost out on a new show he's been developing for CNN.

According to the report, CNN executives have put the the breaks on the new show, as new hacking allegations continue to mount against the former British tabloid editor.

However, a spokesperson for Piers Morgan is pushing back on the story, telling AOL TV that there never was a new show in production, and that 'Piers Morgan Tonight' is not jeopardy.

Sources told the 'Star' that the news-based program would have run in tandem with Morgan's nightly CNN chat show, 'Piers Morgan Tonight,' and that its development was part of the deal he signed back in September 2010 when he took over for Larry King.

Lacey Schwimmer, Jonathan Roberts to Skip 'Dancing With the Stars' 10th Season

Lacey SchwimmerLeave it to Twitter to spoil 'Dancing With the Stars' before it even premieres.

This week, dancers Lacey Schwimmer and Jonathan Roberts took to the social networking site to announce that they will not be returning to fight for the mirrorball trophy when season 10 kicks off next month.

"Hey twitterbugs! I will not be doing DWTS this season," Schwimmer tweeted. "But be sure to tune in! <3"

Since she joined the show in 2008, Schwimmer has danced with Lance Bass, Steve-O and Mark Dacascos of 'Iron Chef America.' No word on whether the decision came from producers or was made on her own accord.

Five more reasons not to turn your TV off during 'TV Turnoff Week'

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 24th 2007 9:12AM

It's TV Turnoff Week again.Welcome to TV Squad Lists, a feature where each blogger has a chance to list his or her own rundown of things in television that stand out from the rest, both good and bad.

Last year, at about this time, I presented you with five relevant reasons not to turn off your televisions during TV Turnoff Week. Well, as Bob mentioned, that week is upon us once again . . . whether we like it or not. So, as I'm short on fresh ideas, let me rehash last year's concept with five more reasons why you shouldn't be turning off the idiot box.

Sanjaya's gone from American Idol: Do you hear that roaring noise? That's the sound of all the Idol purists celebrating that Sanjaya is now gone from their show. This means that they can now get back down to business in choosing who will be the next winner of an exclusive recording contract. Of course, while that finalist will record and receive a good deal of money he or she will probably fade into the background. In the meanwhile, Sanjaya will probably win the Nobel Peace Prize sometime in the near future. I wonder what hairstyle he'll wear during the award presentation?

Dancing With The Stars: Week 6

Dancing WIth The Stars

(S04E10) With only seven couples left, it's getting tough to fill that 90 minute block. Rather than force ABC to trot out another sure to disappoint sit-com, the powers that be at DWTS added the group swing performance. Having now seen it, I have to say it was a good idea. We'll get to that in a moment though. First, the couples all had to perform for the judges.

Heather Mills faked it

Heather Mills falls in Dancing with the StarsAre you going to sit there and tell me that you've been watching Dancing with the Stars just for the dancing and expect me to believe it? It seems like the entire country is waiting for Heather Mills' leg to come flying off into the audience. It seems like that day is almost upon us.

If that day ever comes, it won't be an accident, but a calculated, manipulated piece of choreography. Mills' performance last night serves as a taste of things to come.

Mills danced an almost perfect number and, for some reason, felt the need to stage a mistake and choreograph a fall. Her partner also choreographed a caring response to her fall. I would have an easier time believing this blunder if she looked genuinely mortified.

In other TV celebrity body part news, Regis Philbin is recovering after his bypass. He called into Live! With Regis and Kelly yesterday and admitted some interesting things about his love life.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4

by Brett Love, posted Apr 10th 2007 3:00AM
laila and maksim(S04E06) Tom kicked off week four by proclaiming, "It's time to go big, or go home." I would disagree with that. We are still early enough in the competition that people can continue to skate by on popularity. When they get down to four couples, then it will be time to go big.

Len followed that up by going to the stats. According to his numbers, this group has been slacking on the practice. They have only been practicing 13 hours a week. The teams from the last season averaged 19 hours. He said that it shows in their performance, but I don't notice a stark difference between the two seasons. I think we have a similar division of couples again this year. He followed that up with a threat of lower scores for anyone he thinks isn't putting in the work. I wasn't buying that, but in retrospect, this was some of the tougher judging they have ever done. That said, on with the show.

Hey, Brigitte here with TV Squad Daily. I'll be covering the TV stories I find interesting each day, Monday through Friday, in this video blog.

Today on TV Squad Daily:
  • Heather Mills sure stays in the press a lot for someone who hates publicity. This week she's speaking out about not being a gold digger, and a gruesome surgery on her leg one year ago.
  • The MySpacer's hunger strike over Sanjaya Malakar's continued American Idol stress ended unsuccessfully.
  • The latest Lost commercial is funny, yet kind of embarrassing.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2

by Brett Love, posted Mar 27th 2007 2:30AM
Apollo Ohno, Julianne Hough(S04E02) Two weeks in and I have to say that this is a pretty good group of contestants. The new format with two weeks of performances before the first elimination was a good idea. Sometimes a contestant just doesn't handle a particular dance well, so it's nice to see them get a second shot. Lots of contestants, so a lot to cover. Let's get to it.

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Quick Step) - At its base, the show is about the "Stars." The partners certainly factor in though, and I continue to be impressed with Julianne. She might be just 18 years old, but she carries herself as well as any of the other pros. It doesn't hurt that she is absolutely adorable either. Apollo has officially impressed me now. I didn't have high expectations for him coming in, but he really shows the potential to be a contender. Len said Apollo is going to stay for weeks and weeks. Bruno called it cool, fresh, young, and exciting. Carrie Ann was impressed with the footwork and sync. High praise all around, and deservedly so. The scores, (8, 9, 9) I like that score. A great start to the night.

Heather Mills puts her best foot forward

Heather Mills is on the Tonight ShowBy now, Dancing With the Stars is in full swing, pun completely intended. It seems that audience members were at first weary of Heather Mills' decision to be a contestant in a show where others who have both their legs had deemed too physically demanding.

Appearing last night on The Tonight Show, Heather Mills admits knowing that most of America is waiting for her leg to fly off. Perhaps we should dub this phenomenon "Leg Watch 2007."

Dancing with the Stars: Week 1 (season premiere)

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 19th 2007 11:57PM

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson(S04E01) Another season of Dancing With The Stars is upon us, and I could not be more excited. Some important changes have been made this time around. Contestants were given four weeks to practice for the premiere instead of six, and there will be two weeks of dancing before the first elimination. The premiere was entertaining and surprising, as always. Let's get right to it!

Ian Ziering and Cheryl Burke (Cha Cha Cha) - It's tough to be the first dancers of the night, but Ian and Cheryl did a tremendous job. Their energetic performance included some decent footwork; those two definitely know how to have fun and work the crowd. Cheryl's hair was gorgeous, as usual, but I wasn't a fan of the Ziering facial hair. The judges gave Ian some technical criticism, but the pair walked away with a fair score of 21 (Carrie: 7, Len: 7, Bruno: 7).
