Britney Spears’ residency at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino begins tonight, and while people may be anticipating the show, they weren’t that excited about E!’s two-hour documentary, I Am Britney Jean, following the four months of preparation for it. USA Today reports the Dec. 22 premiere garnered just 706,000 viewers. As of now, you can catch the full documentary here, though the first riveting question Spears is asked — “What’s your favorite bubble gum?”* — may have you switching YouTube channels. READ FULL STORY

Meet the '#Richkids of Beverly Hills': New series shows the sweet lives of spoiled offspring -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Those housewives better make some room, because a much younger crowd is about to take over Beverly Hills. At least in reality TV terms.
Meet Dorothy, Morgan, Roxy, Brendan, and Jonny, aka, the #Richkids of Beverly Hills. They’re just like normal 25 year olds…oh who are we kidding? There isn’t anything normal about washing your hair with Dom Perignon or having a bar tab of over $10,000.
The itsby-bitsy Speidi climbed up the spout of stardom again. (Sorry.) E! has announced a new one-hour special featuring reality show pros Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, collectively known as “Speidi.” Entitled After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, the special will feature an in-depth interview with the couple, chronicling their rise to reality stardom and their lives now. They are known mostly for their roles as reality show villains on The Hills who enjoy an extravagant lifestyle of shopping sprees and extreme plastic surgery. In an E! press release, Pratt states, “The second [The Hills] ended, in 2010, the jig’s up. Now you’re irrelevant. Your fifteen minutes are up.”
The announcement comes a few weeks after Montag shared with Us Weekly the results of her recent breast reduction, downsizing from F-cups to C-cups. The special teases whether the couple will attempt a comeback, making it sound more like a pilot for a potential new reality series than a one-off event. Are you ready for the return of Speidi?
After Shock: Heidi & Spencer airs Monday, Dec. 9, at 10 p.m. on E!
After more than nine years of Mankini and chicken tetrazzini, The Soup airs its 500th episode tonight on E!, and host Joel McHale is more than a little nervous about broadcasting live for the big occasion.
“I’m very much looking forward to it — also, I have full-on dyslexia, so that should be great,” he told reporters after taping No. 499 last week. “You think I’m joking, but I am dyslexic, so it should be a really interesting live taping. I think it really brings a sense of danger.”
McHale definitely needed a few extra takes during last week’s taping (“Get ready to hear the jokes a third time!”), but he and executive producer K.P. Anderson are confident that things will go smoother for the live show. “This was the warm-up,” Anderson told McHale, who responded, “This was the warm-up? The last nine years have been the warm-up!”
So what kind of ingredients do the Soup chefs have in mind for the 500th serving?
Lindsay Lohan is about to be the queen of the small screen. First she lined up an interview and docu-series on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, and now she’s taking over E!’s Chelsea Lately as guest host next week, EW has confirmed.
The actress — whose latest movie, The Canyons, arrives in theaters Friday — will take the reins from host Chelsea Handler during Monday’s show. Lohan has a history with Handler: She made a run at a “comeback” (one of many attempted by the embattled celeb) at the 2010 MTV VMAs in a pre-taped opening with Handler, that year’s host. Check out the skit below:

E! certainly knows its niche. At its upfront presentation today, the network that spawned a thousand Kardashian series will unveil a programming slate filled with shows united by three Gs: glitz, glamor, and gobs of cash.
Highlights include The Wanted Life, which documents the lives of One Direction rivals and Lindsay Lohan accessories The Wanted; Blinging Up Baby, a special designed to make normal people envy celebrity toddlers; a one-off peek behind the curtain of Hollywood’s “cults, cabals and underground clubs”; and 50 Hours with 50 Cent, which answers one of history’s age-old questions: “What is it like to be 50 Cent?”
E! will also announce a slew of projects still in development, including Flash — a Project Runway-esque reality competition for photographers — and scripted soaps from the likes of Gossip Girl‘s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and Smash‘s Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Comedy fans may be most interested in The Soup Investigates, a spin-off of E!’s acerbic clip show that will answer a series of burning pop-culture questions. (Example: “How DOES that rose get from the grower’s field to The Bachelor‘s hand just in time for the all important rose ceremony?”)

Whitney Cummings’ talk show Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings, has been canceled, EW has confirmed with E!. A spokesperson told EW the last episode aired last Wednesday, Feb. 6. The weekly show premiered just this past November and was produced by Chelsea Handler’s company Borderline Amazing Productions. Handler also served as an executive producer on the show alongside Cummings.
While her talk show may have bitten the dust, Cummings herself is doing alright. While her eponymous NBC sitcom still struggles in the ratings for season 2, the other show she co-created, 2 Broke Girls, continues to fare better.

Reality TV overlord Nigel Lythgoe is at it again. The American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance producer has a new summer talent show — in Opening Act, YouTube singing prodigies (there’s the twist!) must ditch the webcams and look alive because they have only five days to get ready to open for stars like Nicki Minaj, Brad Paisley, and Gym Class Heroes.
The series premieres Monday, July 9 at 10 p.m. ET. Watch an exclusive first look of Arielle as she rehearses the “big note” that could make or break her opening for Rod Stewart. READ FULL STORY
Is E!’s schedule about to be short one Kardashian? According to TMZ, the answer is yes: The gossip site is reporting that Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have elected to end their reality series, Khloe & Lamar, after its second and current season. Supposedly, the inactive Dallas Maverick wants to focus on reviving his NBA career.
But according to Kardashian’s publicist, Pearl Servat, TMZ’s report isn’t entirely accurate. “The show has NOT been cancelled,” she told EW via email. “It will depend on their schedules as Lamar’s basketball schedule is a priority.”
So fear not, Kardashi-fans: If Odom can learn to juggle as he’s working to regain his game, Khloe & Lamar may live to see another season. READ FULL STORY
Looks like the Eastwoods are the next celebrity family to land their own reality show: E! announced today that the new series, Mrs. Eastwood & Company will debut in May.
But rather than a deeper look into the life of esteemed actor and director Clint Eastwood, the series will focus on his wife Dina, their teenage daughters Francesca and Morgan, and ‘Overtone’: the all-male, six member South African vocal group that Dina manages (hence the “Company.”)
“Nothing is more important to me than family – no matter how you define that,” Dina Eastwood said in a statement. “People might be surprised by how we live our lives and our unconventional approach, and I also believe that it’s hard not to fall in love with my band, ‘Overtone.’”
“I’m really proud of my family,” Clint Eastwood said. “They are a constant source of inspiration and entertainment.”
The 10 episode half-hour series will debut on May 20.

Previously reported as being in development at the network, EW has found that The Dance Scene has received a series greenlight.
Eight episodes of the half-hour show will follow Gibson as she trains and leads a team of ambitious assistant choreographers and dancers as they prepare to work with high-profile stars.
“The competitive world of the professional dancer is grueling creative work,” says Lisa Berger, executive vice president of programming at E! “Watching Laurieann mentor these young artists, who will do anything to make it in the business, gives us a glimpse into a world where the pursuit of success and excellence outweighs all else.” READ FULL STORY
