I'm delighted to have this thrill ride continue on Fox for another season," Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly in a statement.

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is being inundated with offers to host his own talk show.

The 37-year-old footballer - whose rolling one year contract with Los Angeles Galaxy is up for renewal in December - has reportedly been offered the chance to front his own sports show by Time Warner Cable. A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, "We want David on board whether or not he continues to play for the Galaxy. We are on our way to becoming the world's biggest sportscaster and he is a key part of our future."

The insider said that the US-based company has offered the midfielder a "multi-million" contract and is "desperate" to secure the father-of-four to host a twice-weekly show on its new sports network. The proposed format would see David interview his fellow athletes, discuss tactics and give him "free reign" to cover any sports of his choice.

But rivals FOX are said to be hashing out a massive counter offer in a desperate bid to lure the successful British star to its network and he is considering his options after being advised to cash-in on his celebrity status.

Avatar 3D Limited Edition

Avatar has been available in 3D on Blu-ray for years. The problem is that it's been a Panasonic exclusive, available to buyers of Panasonic 3D HDTV sets, and later to buyers of Panasonic 3D glasses as part of a bundle. Those who were left out had to forage eBay and pay a lot of money to get access to what many call the best 3D movie of all time. Now, finally, Avatar 3D Limited Edition is set to hit retail stores in October. It'll be released globall on October 15, and appear in stores in North America the following day, October 16th.

Me? I'm more excited about E.T.: The Extraterestrial coming to Blu-ray.

Jonah Hill Challenges Matthew Morrison

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Rivalries,

Jonah Hill on Late Night with Jimmy FallonJonah Hill has accused Matthew Morrison of bullying him at a recent showbiz event - and is out for revenge. The Moneyball star was told by the Glee star to be quiet at a presentation for the Fox network in May while he was talking to his actress friend Zooey Deschanel, immediately after a female organizer had also told him to stop talking.

Jonah - who was at the event to promote his upcoming animated comedy Allen Gregory - was left angry after the entire room laughed at him and he still isn't happy. During an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, the comic star said, "Do you know this guy Matthew Morrison on Glee? This guy piggybacks on this woman calling me out. I've never met this guy in my entire life. He goes, 'Yeah Jonah, can't you stop talking for one second?' And everyone laughed at me! I already got it in my head that I don't like this guy. I'm sure he's a good human being, but you don't throw a dude under the bus who's just sitting there being quiet. I've never met him before. He bullied me!"

And this is not the only time Matthew has done something to anger the Superbad star.

American Idol 10: Winner!

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, American Idol, Video,

American Idol’s 10th finale opened with all due pomp and circumstance. Ryan Seacrest wore a tuxedo, but black tie was optional for everyone else. More than 122 million votes, a record number, were counted to determine whether Lauren Alaina or Scotty McCreery would become the next American Idol.

The year’s Top 13 performed “Born This Way” to open the night’s festivities, each dressed in white like angels. If only they sounded like angels. To call the number bad would be too nice. But the show would improve vastly from here...

American Idol 10: Top 3 Results

American Idol 10 panel

Arguably, the Top 3 vote is the most intense of American Idol. The trio of singers is on the cusp of their goal, inches away from being a contender in the show’s big finale. The biggest vote of the season was recorded after the Wednesday performance round: 95 million.

But some of the voters would be disappointed, because one of the Top 3 would be sent home before Thursday came to a close. The only question was… which?

American Idol 10: Top 3 Perform

American Idol 10 - Top 3

Top 3 week of American Idol is always pretty big (for them). Each contestant goes home for a big celebration, with full rock star treatment.

And even James Durbin, who was eliminated last week, went back home to a hero’s welcome. But only Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are left to compete for votes. And of the three, only two will be a part of the show’s big finale next week.

The show snagged a superstar for Top 3 week: Beyonce. There’s no need to expound on her credentials; they’re too evident. She definitely has the knowledge to help the Top 3.
