'America's Got Talent': Live From The Inside (#621/#622)

August 11th, 2011 8:00am EDT
America's Got Talent
It's YouTube Special week on America's Got Talent! After America voted on and judges viewed countless submissions to the Internet video site, the top twelve acts performed live - many for the first time - on the AGT stage in Hollywood.

How did they fare?

Let's preface things by saying that these are amateurs, not professionals. On top of that, the majority of them were bringing their acts to a live audience for the first time - and doing so under TV lights is a lot different than most performances. There's a certain amount of understanding that has to be given out here.

That being said...

Jerry Springer denies he made a $1 million offer to Casey Anthony to appear on his show.

Controversial talk show host Jerry Springer denies he made a million dollar offer to Casey Anthony to appear on his show.

"There is absolutely no truth to this story whatsoever," said a rep for Springer. The Jerry Springer Show has not made any monetary offer to Casey Anthony and her family to appear on the program, nor will we."

Springer himself adamantly denied any such offer had been made -- in fact, he says he wouldn't interview Anthony if he was paid the million dollars.

Paul Iacono - Fame
Paul Iacono stars as wannabe future star Neil Baczynsky -- playing a character that attends the exact performing arts high school he actually attended -- in the new remake of "Fame." Paul joins us and explains, basically, why the world needs a new "Fame" film in the first place.

Mike Ryan: Explain why the world needs a new "Fame."

Paul Iacono: Why does the world need a new "Fame"? Well, in 1980, Alan Parker's film was really groundbreaking in the sense it gave a gritty, realistic, sort of dirty portrayal of kids aspiring to be in the preforming arts field. It was very innovative for i...

Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has hit out at rumors his famous wife helped him land his job hosting America's Got Talent - insisting their relationship does not sway potential employers.

Check Out 'The Best Of Whose Line Is It Anyway?' On DVD June 9

Whose Line Is It Anyway?
On "Whose Line Is It Anyway" no one gets voted off the show. That would be too easy. Instead contestants face crueler fates: be a fish on a TV dating show, Adam and Eve when they first converse, a doo-wop group singing about a girl (and a tragic taxidermy accident). We're not making this up. They are.

Host Drew Carey, a clever crew of comedy regulars and special guests (David Hasselhoff, Florence Henderson, Jerry Springer, Richard Simmons, bodybuilder Jane Tricker and more) come up with funny-on-the-fly in the hit series that crosses a game show with mad improvisation.

Jerry Springer
TV legend Jerry Springer has blasted his fellow Americans over their "criminal" lack of support for war veterans.

The star is convinced young school-leavers often sign up for military service because they cannot find any other suitable job. And he is disgusted that after tours of duty in the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan, returning soldiers are not "looked after" by their fellow citizens in the U.S.

He says, "The whole society should (look after them). It's a crime. We send young people off to fight. In many cases - not all - but in many cases, certainly in America, a lot of...

TV host Jerry Springer has branded America's military action in Iraq "insane".

The controversial star claims the invasion was based on flawed logic and has destroyed the United States' reputation throughout the world.

He says, "That never made sense to me, even if (George W) Bush was telling the truth about Weapons of Mass Destruction - in fact, particularly if he was telling the truth about Weapons of Mass Destruction. Why the hell would you bomb a country that could fire back? That would be insane. Bush did real damage to America's reputation around the world."

'American Idol' Week Two Brings Emotional Overload

January 24th, 2008 11:25am EST
American Idol
Some people cried, some laughed and some swore in anger. Those emotions summed up the two days of "American Idol" auditions in San Diego, Calif., and Charleston, South Carolina. Last week when I said there was a change in the judge's attitude, I didn't believe it would lead to these immense outbursts of emotions. We have all seen much of this behavior from previous years, but this year was incomparable.

Charleston, dubbed the friendliest city in the nation, brought mostly a wave of despair and utter loss for a majority of the contestants. Plenty of people left in firm belief that si...

The 63-year-old, who is known for stirring up family tensions on his controversial show, insists it is not the role of a talk-show host to make the world a better place.

He says, "That is where television crosses the line. Where you get a TV personality who says what you ought to do and pretend that you are taking this person and fixing their life."
