A new music and entertainment cable channel is launching. Business entertainment reporter Joe Flint says concert promoter AEG is teaming up with Ryan Seacrest, Mark Cuban and Creative Artists Agency to start AXS, a pop culture and music cable channel that is expected to debut in June. The channel will specialize in live programming, especially music and concert coverage. Los Angeles-based AEG's downtown L.A. Live complex will serve as the network's on-air home. Seacrest won't be an on-air personality, Joe Flint says in his story today , but his production company will be involved.

Let's hear it for the "American Idol" voters. They were spot-on this week. The voters didn't care if the judges told Majesty Rose that her shouty rendition of "Let It Go" was "strong. " Nor were they willing to unquestioningly accept all that Sam Woolf-is-the-next-big-heartthrob propaganda the show has been handing them when his performances have been consistently awkward and underwhelming. And they certainly won't sit idly by when a guy who'd portrayed himself as a down-home country boy suddenly sees fit to lose the backward baseball hat, slick back his hair, groom his scraggly beard, replace his flannel shirt with a velvet jacket and make like Elton John.

Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, possibly Hollywood's busiest couple, reportedly are together no more.  The two have split up and are living apart after almost three years of dating. "Taking a break" is how People described it in breaking the news from sources close to the couple. Their reps wouldn't comment to the mag about the situation. They're still friends, but schedules got the best of them, the sources said. "It's a lifestyle she couldn't handle anymore," a source told Us Weekly.

What I'm loving about the Oscars so far is the individual style statements -- Pharrell Williams in shorts and Lupita Nyong'o in what she calling Nairobi blue. "This is Prada and it was made for me. It's a blue that reminds me of Nairobi and I wanted to have a little bit of home," Nyong'o told Ryan Seacrest. The gown is sweet and striking with the kind of plunging neckline I wish Amy Adams was wearing. More Oscar fashion galleries: Best and worst dressed | Stars on the red carpet | Makeup and hair | Men's fashion Nyong'o is also decked out in some exceptional Fred Leighton jewelry, especially that chic, chic, chic diamond-and-gold headband.

The ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest is adding another hosting gig to his resume. He's just been named host and executive producer of NBC's new prime-time game show "The Million Second Quiz. " But it seems that NBC's president of alternative and late-night programming, Paul Telgedy, is counting on Seacrest's seeming involvement in nearly everything on TV to draw interest to the new show. In a statement, he said, "When people see Ryan Seacrest, whether at the Emmys, the Oscars or New Year's Eve, he is at the epicenter of national events....

Reality singing competitions have been very good to Ryan Seacrest, so it's no surprise that the longtime host of "American Idol" is seeking to produce another one for the ever-growing Spanish-speaking market on Telemundo. The new series, announced Sunday by Telemundo, is called "Superstar Showdown. " Instead of a panel of judges annointing a new would-be superstar from a field of unknowns, this series will pit well-known singers against each other in a series of competitions, including sing-offs.

The "American Idol" top 13 took the stage live on Wednesday night to perform songs suited to the theme "This is me. " They were instructed to select a song that "truly defines them as an artist and as a person," Ryan Seacrest told us. Some of the contestants did that better than others -- just as only some of them managed to stammer out five facts about themselves in a scant 20 seconds when they were ambushed, while doing things like eating their...

Cold-weather football games are about as perfect an example of the form as you'll find. So what better way to watch a skiing competition than with a blizzard backdrop? That hasn't happened much in global-warmed Sochi. But on Tuesday night viewers were treated to a gold-medal run from the ski halfpiper David Wise against the flaky white stuff, along with some rain, and it was a doozy on both counts. Okay, so ski halfpipe is a) an entirely new event and b) one that seems to be practiced by athletes in all of four countries.

Perhaps in an attempt to live up to the drama implied by its apocalyptic-sounding name, the second night of the "final judgment" phase on "American Idol" included twists and tricks that were unexpected at least, it appeared, by the contestants themselves. At the top of the show, 17 of the top 30 slots - 15 guys and 15 young women - who would be featured in next week's live rounds had been claimed. And far more than 13 singers sat stressed out, their fates suspended, in the holding room.

Josh Hamilton, who hasn't played the outfield since Aug. 27 and took a cortisone injection in his sore left shoulder on Aug. 28, threw at 100%  Friday and is expected to return to the Angels outfield soon. Hamilton has been a huge disappointment after signing a five-year, $125-million deal last December, his average hovering around the .220 mark for the first four months and his power numbers (19 homers, 62 RBIs, .422 slugging percentage) way down from his career averages. But Hamilton had two hits in Thursday night's 6-2 win over Tampa Bay and has hit .337 (30 for 89)
