by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 5th 2011 1:30AM
Kardashian sisters, 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'Bullying is a serious problem that can lead to all sorts of emotional and psychological issues for the victims, even later into their lives. For the Walker family, it cost them their son after he committed suicide at the tender age of 11. On 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Fri., 8PM ET on ABC), the family was giving a new home they could hopefully feel at peace in, as well as some help with their anti-bullying initiative.

First, the Kardashian sisters surprised eldest daughter Dominique on a shopping trip, where Khloe talked about her own experiences with bullying. She was often compared negatively to sisters Kourtney and Kim, and fans of the show know that she actually took a DNA test years later to see if she was truly related to them. Insecurities from bullying can linger for years.

Demi Lovato Performs 'Skyscraper' on 'AGT' Results Show (VIDEO)

Demi Lovato, 'America's Got Talent'It was a tense results show, as usual, on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC). But at least five acts out of the twelve are moving on this time, instead of four like in the previous round. We'd tell you how much that improves their odds, but we'll leave that math up to the Kinetic King.

To break the tension, Demi Lovato was on hand with her new single 'Skyscraper.' While she showed a lot of great stage presence and confidence, her vocals seemed to betray her nervousness a little bit at times. All in all, though, she gave a very commanding performance.

Demi Lovato'Sonny With a Chance' is officially not getting its Sonny back.

Demi Lovato
told People today that following her stint in rehab for "physical and emotional issues," she won't return to the hit Disney show about a kids' sketch comedy series.

"I don't think going back to 'Sonny' would be healthy for my recovery," Lovato told People. "Being in front of a camera would make me nervous."

Instead, the 18-year-old will pursue her already successful music career. Lovato has released two albums with Hollywood Records.

"It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music," Lovato said. "It's kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn't be a better time for me to move on."

Family TV Round-Up: 'Sonny With a Chance' Sans Demi Lovato, Thanksgiving Specials and More

by Rich Keller, posted Nov 19th 2010 3:05PM
'Sonny With a Chance' may go 'So Random!' without star Demi Lovato.Welcome to the Family TV Round-Up, a recap of all kid-friendly programming across the television universe. We sum up all of the news related to children's programming, as well as profile the people and shows that your kids, tweens and teens are talking about.

We start off with the dilemma facing the producers of Disney Channel's 'Sonny With a Chance.' With star Demi Lovato on indefinite hiatus due to personal reasons, the idea of focusing the newest season on the other characters of the show doesn't seem right.

Therefore, instead of the behind-the-scenes look at the fictional teen sketch show 'So Random!,' the producers will re-center the series on the sketch/music-variety show itself.

Tina FeyFirst, Tina Fey and '30 Rock' gave us their take on 'Survivor' with 'MILF Island.' Now, they're taking on the hottest reality franchise on cable right now: 'The Real Housewives.'

According to TV Guide, Angie Jordan (Sherri Shepherd) gets cast in a 'Real Housewives'-esque series that puts cameras on Tracy (Tracy Morgan) 24/7. What's this do to him? "Having the cameras around forces Tracy to act on better behavior,"'30 Rock' executive producer Robert Carlock told TV Guide.

Look for a potential appearance from Bravo's Andy Cohen. "Tina certainly enjoys him and we have joked about having him on," Carlock said. "Maybe we will."

The Jonas Brothers! And Demi Lovato! (Shhh ... if you're quiet, you can hear the wild screams of tween fans around the world.)

'Camp Rock' was such a sensational hit for the Disney Channel, they smartly decided to get the gang back together for 'Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam' (premieres Fri., Sept. 3, 8PM ET). But something's standing in the way of Mitchie and the boys having a rockin' summer: rival Camp Star across the lake. The whole thing ends in a musical battle to end all battles, deciding which is the better camp.

I caught up with Nick, Joe, Kevin and Demi to hear all about the sequel, some new characters and some that've grown up since the first film and if there are more 'Camp Rock' movies in their future.

Demi LovatoCan we all please just agree that Demi Lovato is adorable? And possibly taking over the universe? I sat down with the Disney starlet to talk about her latest projects, and we almost couldn't make time for everything she's doing.

The biggest thing coming up is 'Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,' the Disney Channel sequel to her hit movie with three guys you might've heard of, the Jonases. Even though the movie won't premiere for a few months, tweens are already screaming for details -- Demi tells me that her character Mitchie is more confident and a leader this time around. She also spills that Mitchie's relationship with Shane (Joe Jonas, her real-life ex) continues to be crazy.

Then she dishes about her summer tour with the Jonas Brothers, 'Sonny With a Chance,' her awesome episode of 'Grey's Anatomy,' giving back and her "secret passion."

Demi Lovato Gets Serious on 'Grey's Anatomy'

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 5th 2010 1:10PM
Demi Lovato will guest star in an upcoming episode of Grey's AnatomyOr maybe the title should be 'Another Disney Star Sees the Writing on the Wall.' Lately, a number of Disney Channel mainstays like Miley Cyrus and Ashley Teasdale are seeing their lucrative teeny bop days ending and they're moving towards different roles. Makes sense, of course. It just seems every time this happens, these actors go in the totally opposite direction (I'm looking at you, Ms. Elizabeth 'Showgirls' Berkley).

Hopefully, Demi Lovato doesn't head down that road. It doesn't seem likely, since she's been acting for years (she was in the cast of 'Barney & Friends' with Selina Gomez). Plus, she already had a taste of dramatic acting with a role in FOX's 'Prison Break' back in 2006.

With that accumulated experience, her guest stint as a schizophrenic patient on an upcoming May episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' should work out. Look for ratings to skyrocket as tweens ask their parents to stay up late on a school night to watch (and ask why everyone is having sex with everyone else at Seattle Grace).
