Nick Cannon On the 'Up All Night' Cast: 'Everybody Has New Kids on That Show' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 2nd 2011 6:00PM
Just as the main characters in his new show 'Up All Night' are trying to stay hip after having kids, Nick Cannon told 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) that he's determined to do the same after having twins with Mariah Carey. As if to immediately disprove his point, he led the hosts in an impromptu, awkward drum session. "It's like 'Stomp the Yard' up in here!" he joked.

Jillian Barberie told Cannon that she saw his 'Up All Night' co-star Maya Rudolph out with her kids, and noted that although her character Ava struggles to relate to children, Rudolph seems to be living a life more like Christina Applegate's character Reagan.

"We all are," Cannon said. "Everybody has new kids on that show. It's crazy." Rudolph had her third child with director Paul Thomas Anderson in July, Will Arnett and Amy Poehler just had their second child last year and Christina Applegate and boyfriend Martyn LeNoble had her first child in January.

'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. Wins!

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.Cliché as it sounds, there were only winners on last night's 'America's Got Talent' Season 6 finale.

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., as judge Howie Mandel accurately predicted on Tuesday's performance show, won the competition and the show's $1 million prize. "I am the great predictor," Mandel quips.

Dance group Silhouettes came in second. Dance group Team iLuminate was third. Rock band POPLYFE came in fourth, but you'd never know it by the jubilation they were feeling after the show. The band members were still ecstatic over getting to perform with the legendary Stevie Wonder, an experience they'll take with them forever.

"I'll take it with me as well," Wonder told AOL TV on the post show press line. "They are a group that is committed to staying together and not letting anyone break them apart. I feel that's how we should be as a nation. I'm excited that they allowed me to be a part of their group."

Nick Cannon Recalls the Wild Prank Sharon Osbourne Pulled on Piers Morgan (VIDEO)

Nick Cannon on 'The Talk'Those who missed Sharon Osbourne's risque antics while 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), was on hiatus were treated to quite the return when Nick Cannon stopped by the show Wednesday. Cannon and Osbourne are host and judge, respectively, on 'America's Got Talent,' and Cannon reported that Osbourne is just as wild behind-the-scenes of that show as she is on 'The Talk.'

Cannon recalled Osbourne's trademark excited voice and her propensity for practical jokes. "She is hilarious," he said. "I love when she just blurts out stuff with that high-pitched register. That's amazing. But, when we're just hanging out, like when we're traveling and stuff together, she is the jokester."

'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Should Piers Morgan's Buzzer Be Silenced?

by Michael Maloney, posted Aug 31st 2011 7:00AM
GymkanaTake it from someone who's sat in the audience at 'America's Got Talent' -- the judges' buzzers sound even louder in person. So when trigger-happy judge Piers Morgan hits that red "X" button performers can understandably become rattled.

Therefore, Morgan striking acrobatic act Gymkana may have caused the performers' concentration to fail, which could have have contributed to one of the team's members catching fire when he jumped through a ring of flames.

Host Nick Cannon informed viewers at home (after a commercial break) that the Gymkana acrobat was okay thanks to his flame-retardant outfit.

Morgan quipped that by striking the act he was trying to end it early, thus potentially saving lives. But fellow judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne, as well as Cannon, say they wouldn't mind Morgan's buzzer being disconnected.

'America's Got Talent' Backstage Report: Did Piers Morgan Buzz a Little Girl Because of Nick Cannon's Dare?

by Michael Maloney, posted Aug 11th 2011 7:00AM
Breena Bell The audience at home mostly has the final say on whether or not an act progresses to the next round on 'America's Got Talent,' but a strike ("X") from the judges is still pretty much the kiss of death for a competitor.

None of the six performers/acts from Tuesday night that received a dreaded red buzz from judges Piers Morgan (who gave five) and Howie Mandel (who gave one) are advancing to the semi-finals.

The lucky ones that did advance include dancer Beth Ann Robinson, bicyclist Matt Willheim, circus performers Gymkana and singer Kevin Colis.

Morgan pretty much sealed the fate of agile tumbler Breena Bell when he gave her a strike on Tuesday's show.

Why'd he do it?

Naked Cowgirl Loves Nick Cannon, Judges Don't Love Her on 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

Naked Cowgirl & Nick Cannon, 'America's Got Talent'You have to be careful typing 'Naked Cowgirl' into Google. You might find some things that could get you in trouble with your spouse or your boss (or both!). If you type it in with 'America's Got Talent' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC), you'll probably only be mad at yourself.

Sandy Kane has largely swiped the gimmick of New York City's Naked Cowboy. Only while he's fit and in shape, Kane is a 57-year old woman. Actually, we have to admit that she's in great shape for her age, but it did nothing to make her act more palatable.

She performed an original song about Nick Cannon, calling him her boyfriend and talking about how much she loved him. Only she has a terrible singing voice, and the song was poorly written.

On the Scene: 'America's Got Talent' Second Twelve Acts

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 21st 2010 9:25AM
America's Got Talent Forget about replacing Larry King. After the number of times he hit the strike button last night on 'America's Got Talent,' Piers Morgan could take over for Simon Cowell on 'American Idol.'

The strike-happy Morgan got off to an early start rejecting groups when he gave an "X" to Cheer SF, the San Francisco-based cheer leading team. Iron Horse, Strongman, Ronith -- and even a girl in the audience named Lindsay, who sang a Tina Turner song during the commercial break -- also each received an "X" from Piers.

"Piers can suck it!" a friend of Lindsay's said after getting a hold of the warm-up guy's microphone.

"Fair enough," Morgan told TV Squad after taping. "If you dish it out, you've got to take it. That's fine. I like people who come back at me. It's good. It shows strength of character."

(Piers, we'll keeping this in mind when we ask you for a Larry King update, cool?)

As for why all the buzzer action tonight, Morgan says, "I thought it was necessary. A few of the acts looked pretty ridiculous. They were only there because of Howie Mandel. He's the 'Ronith' of judges."

Nickelodeon Picks Up Two Comedy Pilots

Brian RobbinsNickelodeon has given the greenlight to two comedy pilots: 'Supah Ninja' and 'Everyday Kid.'

Producer Brian Robbins (pictured), a Nickelodeon stand-by, is behind 'Ninja,' which follows some high school kids who also happen to be ninjas. The pilot was written by Eric Garcia and Leo Chu, with contributions from Andy Bobrow (ABC's 'Samantha Who?').

Robbins is well-known to the network, having partnered with Michael Tollin to create Nickelodeon's sketch comedy series 'All That,' which launched the careers of Jamie Lynn Spears, Kenan Thompson and the central stars of 'The Amanda Show' and 'The Nick Cannon Show' (series they also fronted).

Mariah Carey stumbles at People's Choice Awards

Mariah Carey stumbles at People's Choice Awards 2010Dear Mariah Carey,

I know that you're a big diva, and that you like being a big diva and will do just anything to keep that persona going. But it just seems to me that if you're going to an awards show where you might possibly be walking onstage to accept an award, you should have a dress and shoes you can walk in.

Maybe you like having hubby Nick Cannon help you onstage, like he did at last night's People's Choice Awards. Maybe he likes it. Maybe it helps the whole diva thing -- "ooh, I can't even move without someone helping me." But it's not really doing much for your image. Come to think of it, neither is your drunk speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards a couple of nights ago.

What's Hot on SlashControl: Mariah Carey falls for Jay Leno

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 4th 2009 4:02PM
On Monday's episode of The Jay Leno Show, Mariah Carey made quite the entrance, taking a little stumble on her way out to meet the talk show host. I've always wondered how the heck she walks in those super high heels, but since it's all you ever see her wearing, she gets plenty of practice. In this clip from SlashControl, she doesn't blame the heels themselves, but rather a strap that broke backstage. That would be a shoe strap, not the other kind.

And speaking of that, it's a good thing Mariah didn't fall any further than she did, or there would have been some major wardrobe malfunctions going on. With the dangerous combo of high heels and that massive chest, it's a wonder she can stay upright at all. Oh, come on. You know you're thinking the same thing. Nick Cannon is either a very happy guy, or a very tortured guy who puts up with the diva for, uh, his own personal reasons.

America's Got Talent

Before you continue reading this post, it's important that you know that I enjoy America's Got Talent and have been entertained by it since the first season. However, I, and I know a lot of fans too based on comments left here on the site, am not that happy with how the current season turned out.

Dear America's Got Talent producers, here are a few suggestions from myself and TV Squad readers on how you can improve next season.

America's Got Talent: And the winner is... (season finale)

America's Got Talent
(S04E26) This is it, people. The time has come to name the winner of America's Got Talent, the world's biggest talent search. The two-hour (!) final results bash included performances from Britain's Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle, The X Factor's Leona Lewis, Thelma Houston, Cirque du Soleil, Rascal Flatts, and Shakira. Sadly, none of the previous AGT winners performed.

Based on the TV Squad poll I've included in my review of the Top 10 performance show, 35.1% of the voters, including myself, said Barbara Padilla would win. Kevin Skinner received 22.2% of your votes, while Recycled Percussion placed third in our poll with 19.4%. The other contestants all got under 7% of your votes. (Note that these results were accurate at the beginning of the results show.)

Did the TV Squad poll results match reality? Official results coming up!

If you haven't watched the finale yet and do not want to be spoiled as to who won the competition, it's time to click elsewhere now!

(S04E25) The biggest talent search in the world started its competition three months ago. After a summer of questionable judges decisions, talent performances and Hoff-isms, it's time to crown the winner of the show's fourth season.

But before the America's Got Talent winner can be announced in the live season finale to air on Wednesday, featuring a guest appearance by Susan Boyle, the Top 10 acts needed to perform one last time for America's votes. My comments and predictions coming up!

America's Got Talent: Top 20 results show two

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 10th 2009 3:19PM
America's Got Talent - Top 20 results show, S04E24(S04E24) Nick asked the crowd who they'd like to see in the finals, and of course, it was impossible to tell which names they yelled out, since all of the acts have their fans at this point.

Tonight we learn who's taking the last five spots in the finals. Nick also reminded us that the next show will air Monday, Sept. 14, and that there's no judge's pick tonight. The five who go through will be the five that America voted for. As it should be, in my view.

After a brief recap of last night's show, Nick asked Piers why he X'd the acts he did. Piers said it's a simple formula -- a game of the good and the not-so-good. Sharon gave another shout out to Barbara Padilla, whom she absolutely loves. Hoff said, "I'm Hoff crazy!" He also reminded us that they've seen a hundred thousand acts and it's getting down to the wire.

America's Got Talent: Top 20 performance show two

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 9th 2009 12:30AM
America's Got Talent(S04E23) There were mixed feelings amongst viewers last week when the America's Got Talent judges announced that they couldn't decide who, between Voices of Glory and Fab 5, should get the fourth place in what was supposed to be a final round of the top eight acts of the summer.

It wasn't much of a surprise when Nick announced at the beginning of this week's performance show that there would be no judges' pick. It wouldn't make sense to have a Top 9, eh? I'm happy that more acts -- aka the same number as last year -- will get to perform in the finals. But what I'm happier for is that America will pick the final five acts to enter the next round. No judges' pick. The results will be solely based on the number of votes.

How did the ten remaining acts perform this week? Which acts should move on? My two cents, Piers' many Xs, and your comments coming up!
