'I Wanna Marry 'Harry': Fox bumps up premiere

Those ladies are in a real hurry to walk down the aisle next to a (phony) royal.

Fox is moving the premiere of fake-out dating competition I Wanna Marry “Harry” to May 20 at 9 p.m., in the plum spot behind the first night of American Idol‘s finale. The show had been slated to premiere May 27, following the timeslot debut of the celebrity game show Riot.

I Wanna Marry “Harry” follows 12 American woman with dreams of becoming a modern-day princess. They are flown to London to vie for the love of the world’s most eligible bachelor, a man they’re led to believe is Prince Harry. But in a Joe Millionaire twist, the guy they all want to make “the one” is actually nothing more than a sort-of lookalike.

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst reveals big changes to the finale format

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: During the immunity challenge you said, “Tony with a huge time advantage. The question is, does he know how to do slide puzzles?” I’m going to go out on a limb and say the answer to that question is a big fat no. These challenge puzzles usually take a very long time to solve so you often have to edit down what we see on the show due to time, so give us your on-the-scene take on just how quickly Spencer got this done, and just how lost Tony was.
JEFF PROBST: The lead Tony had going into the puzzle was pretty significant, but based on past performance I knew there was some question as to how long it would take him to finish. When Spencer bounded up the ladder to start on the puzzle I didn’t necessarily think he could win. I was just happy that it was going to be a better ending because now we had two people doing the puzzle. What was apparent right away was their very different styles. Tony was just slamming pieces back and forth without any clear direction and Spencer was literally just standing there studying it.  So I focused my attention back on Tony, thinking Spencer would be a while — and when I turned around to check on him he was almost finished.  I didn’t actually see what he did to get there. I turned around, saw he was close, and then — WHAM! It was over. Had there been more players for me to check in on. I might have missed the entire thing.  It really was that fast. READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Harry Connick Jr. confirms he will return next season

Now that American Idol has been renewed for a 14th season — albeit slightly adjusted — fans want to know what next  year’s judges’ panel is going to look like. Well for now, we can at least tell you it will have a bit of a crooner edge.

Harry Connick Jr. officially confirmed his return to the show during a visit to Live! With Kelly and Michael Wednesday. When asked about his status for next season, Connick replied, “I’ll be back.”

Connick’s return is not a shocking development for most fans, as all judges are anticipated to reprise their roles, but fans can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that his scruff will once again be a part of their weekly television routine.

InsideTV Podcast: Tasha from 'Survivor' has strong words for Tony and Kass

Latasha Fox made it close to the end of Survivor: Cagayan. But not close enough as she was voted out during last night’s episode. How does she think she would fared had she made it to the final Tribal Council? “Give me the million dollars,” she said when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning. Indeed, Tasha is confident she could have beaten anyone and everyone in any combination had she made it to the end. And those aren’t the only strong words that came out of Tasha during our discussion. She also chides Kass for her move to flip away from the majority alliance and questions any and all credit that Tony has gotten for his gameplay, asking “Is Tony that good?” Tasha also names the people in her dream final 3 as well as the player that has impressed her most watching the season play back on TV. It’s a revealing talk, and you can now listen to the entire thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast. (The Tasha interview begins at the 29:20 mark.) READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst breaks down the latest episode

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I’ve heard from Survivors in past seasons that were lucky enough to go on one of these types of rewards where they get to interact with local kids about what a memorable experience it was. And it was actually a similar type of reward in season 3 that inspired Ethan Zohn to begin all his incredible charity work in Africa. Tell me about how meaningful it is for you as a production to take a minute to give back to your host community in this way.
JEFF PROBST: It was definitely one of my favorite moments of this season. The truth is that we always endeavor to leave the community better than it was when we arrived. We are involved in lots of different types of support in every location. But when you can find a way to work it into the show it’s a win-win. It reminds the audience that the contestants do have a heart and they aren’t always cut throat and I don’t care who you are, seeing the faces of those kids – pretty beautiful. Woo was the star of the day! He really just took over and put on a show!

Chris Harrison: The death of 'Bachelorette' contestant Eric Hill will be handled with respect

The cast and crew of The Bachelorette season 10 have been mourning the loss of contestant Eric Hill, who died of injuries sustained during a paragliding accident last month. As the May 19 premiere approaches, host Chris Harrison says producers are now trying to figure out the best, most respectful way to deal with the tragedy on the show.

“It’s a horrible, horrible thing. He was taken away too young,” Harrison tells People. “It’s something we’ve never dealt with on the show. It didn’t only affect our cast, but also our crew who worked closely with him.”

Harrison says Hill was “a big part of the show.” The 31 year-old had already shot his scenes for Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s season when a parachute failure led to his death. “We all took a moment to step back and reflect and respect Eric and his family,” Harrison says. “We wanted to really take it all in and let ourselves mourn a little bit.” READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Jefra from 'Survivor' talks about being betrayed by Tony...twice!

She should have known not to trust him after he blindsided her biggest ally right out of the game. And the truth is, she did know. But that didn’t stop Jefra Bland from being blindsided by Tony last night on Survivor: Cagayan. She called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk all about the big betrayal, and you can hear the entire conversation right here on the InsideTV Podcast. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst talks about the super idol and new auction twist

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Since I was away and wasn’t able to ask you last week about this, let’s start with this super-powered idol Tony found last episode that allows him to use it after the votes are read. This is actually the same power the idol had back for the Panama and Cook Islands seasons, but then you all decided it had too much power so switched it to having to be played after the votes were cast and before they were read. What made you guys decide to bring it back 15 seasons later, and was there concern that it would once again give too much power to one person so late in the game?  
JEFF PROBST: Our process for adding a twist to the show is surprisingly thorough. We have the idea and we all talk through it. Everybody runs scenarios in their head looking for problems and then solutions. Then we make the decision — are we doing it? In this case, since we had done a similar version in earlier seasons it was really a case of speculating “How will it play” as a one off? So many times the success or failure of an idol comes down to who finds it. If you’re a Tony fan, you love it! If you despise Tony, you hate it! It does come with a lot of power and it can definitely influence the game. Big rewards go to people who hustle. Tony hustles.

I think it will probably go down the same way Redemption Island did. Some people love it, some people hate it! The only way you find new exciting twists (switches, idols, Exile, Fans v Favorites, Redemption, BvW, BvBvB, etc) is by trying things. I’m just delighted with how much fans are enjoying this season, and giving them something to argue about (with us and with each other) is always a good thing!

See duped gals in Fox's 'I Wanna Marry Harry'

Did the promotional model, preschool teacher and Miss Los Angeles knew what hit them?

Fox is about to launch its (pretty freakin’ awesome) answer to the Bachelor franchise — a show in which a bunch of babes are dropped off at an English castle and promised the chance to date a prince. Guess who he looks like?

This, we understand, was one of the last reality shows developed by reality show guru Mike Darnell before he left Fox — and all we can say is that it makes us miss that crazy little bastard even more.
