Britney Spears documentary tanked in ratings

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.

'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' season 9 teaser: 'Our family has never been stronger' -- VIDEO

If you thought the Kardashians were going to run out of drama anytime soon, you clearly have not seen the new teaser for season 9 of their reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Between Kris and Bruce giving their kids the “We’re better as friends” speech to Lamar saying, “I would do anything to be accepted back by you guys,” it looks like Kim won’t be the source of all drama this year. Although, the teaser also gives us a sneak peek at Kanye’s proposal, so it promises to be a year of ups and downs. As Kim puts it, “We are a ride-or-die family.”

Watch the new teaser below:

Brace for the 'After Shock': E! to air special on reality vets Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt

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!

Joel McHale on 'The Soup' 500th episode: 'I never thought it would go this long'

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 to guest-host 'Chelsea Lately'

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! unveils glitzy programming slate filled with boy bands, lady wrestlers, blinged-out babies

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' E! talk show canceled

People didn’t love it back.

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.

'Khloe & Lamar': Kancelled? Not exactly

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
