Khloe Kardashian out as ‘X Factor’ judge
NEW YORK — Khloe Kardashian is left out following the latest game of musical chairs on The X Factor.
Fox says that while Mario Lopez is returning this autumn as host of Simon Cowell’s music competition series, Kardashian will not be joining him.
Cowell’s series, which has never quite met ratings expectations, is in the midst of turnover with its judging panel, too. Cowell and Demi Lovato will be returning, but Britney Spears and record producer Antonio “L.A.” Reid left and have not been replaced yet.
The show starts its third season in the fall.
Fox renews ‘Glee’ for two more seasons
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Fox TV series Glee will keep on singing for another two years.
The network announced Friday that it has renewed the show about music-loving students through 2014-2015 — its 6th season.
In a statement, Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly said Glee continues to break new ground as a rare successful TV musical comedy. The show has been a music hit as well, with more than 50 million downloads of Glee tracks and worldwide album sales of more than 13 million.
Glee has expanded from its original focus on the McKinley High School glee club to the college world of Rachel and Kurt, played by cast members Lea Michele and Chris Colfer.
Thursday’s episode will feature Sarah Jessica Parker. Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson are among
previous Glee A-list drop-ins.
