Behind the Scenes: TV Roundup

While your TiVo helps you record all the drama and laughs that happen on-screen, we thought we’d take a chance to catch you up on the latest that’s happening behind the scenes of a couple of our favorite shows.


We know you’re watching The Voice and The X Factor this fall, but the on-air spats between judges Adam/XTina or Demi/Simon ain’t got nothin’ on what we might see on American Idol come January. In a fight TMZ made sure was heard round the world, judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey’s dust-up during auditions in Charlotte, NC, has put the show top-of-mind for many fans and – we can only guess – given AI producers some great, dramatic content for their upcoming promos. This….is American Idol!

A favorite from The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, GCB and a stellar guest-role on Glee, Kristin Chenoweth was all set to dig up dirt on Alicia and Peter with a multi-episode arc as a political reporter on The Good Wife this season. But unfortunately, Chenoweth’s debut in last Sunday’s season premiere will be her only appearance for the time being. The Broadway veteran and Emmy winner has left the show to focus on healing the injuries she sustained on-set when she was struck by a piece of lighting equipment during filming. Sometimes even scripted shows can give us a painful dose of reality!

We’ll keep you posted on the latest behind the scenes scoop, but you’re going to have to tune in or TiVo to see how these backstage bouts translate to the small screen.
