Ryan Murphy: 'American Horror Story season two completely different'

Ryan Murphy has said that the second season of American Horror Story will be completely different from the first.

The creator opened up about the show's 17 Emmy nominations, saying that normally the show's success would cause him to feel pressured about the upcoming season.

"Normally, [the Emmy love] would [add extra pressure]," Murphy told TV Line.

"But it doesn't because it's a completely different thing," he continued. "It's a completely different story, a completely different period, and a completely different look. It's like doing a new project. It can't be compared to the first season."

He went on to speak about shooting season two, describing the process as almost surreal.

"Everyone looks so different," Murphy said. "People who were enemies last year are allies this year. The sets are amazing. It's 1964, so everything looks very different."

American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott recently admitted that he is excited about the show's revamp for season two.

Showtime Chief David Nevins Talks Emmys, 'Revitalized' 'Dexter'

"Homeland" made a breakthrough with Thursday's Emmy nominations, and Showtime entertainment president David Nevins says his network has more good news to come.

The domestic terror drama was the only new show to enter the Outstanding Drama Series category. (The other new entry in the category, "Downton Abbey," competed previously as a miniseries.)

It scored a lead actor nod for Damien Lewis and lead actress nomination for Claire Danes, making it the only drama besides Emmy-magnet "Mad Men" to land nods for its male and female leads.

Showtime also earned a nomination in each of the lead acting categories -- the only network to do so -- and five nods in the lead acting categories, the most of any network. Besides Lewis and Danes, Don Cheadle was nominated for lead comedy actor for "House Of Lies," past winner Edie Falco is up for best comedic actress for "Nurse Jackie," and "Dexter" star Michael C. Hall (above) is competing with Lewis for best dramatic actor.

But there were drawbacks for Showtime in Thursday's nominations: While "Homeland" joined the best drama competition, "Dexter" was dropped from the category. Showtime also remains far behind its premium cable competition HBO, which scored 81 nominations to Showtime's 22. Still, Showtime narrowed the gap from last year, when it had 21 nominations and HBO had 104.

We talked briefly with Nevins about the Emmys, why he thinks the network will have more actors in competition next year, and a "revitalized" upcoming season of "Dexter."

Congratulations. Do the nominations today reflect a particular strategy for Showtime paying off?
Nevins: Thank you. The strategy is simple: to make great television that's provocative and not boring. There's no grand strategy beyond that. ... "Homeland" is a show that's very personal to me. It feels like we've really broken through. It's great to be recognized in all the big categories.

Were you surprised by Don Cheadle's nomination?
I was hoping for Don Cheadle. That was the big one. I wasn't really surprised. I kind of looked at that category and thought he had a real shot.

How much do nominations help you?
It's important for these first year shows. We're in 21 percent of the homes in the country. It's hard to get our younger shows noticed. ... We build from here. "Homeland" and "House of Lies" are going to be mainstays for the foreseeable future for this network.

And we've got two new shows we're really excited about, "Masters of Sex" and "Ray Donovan." We're about great acting and great writing, and creating roles for actors. Maybe you'll see ["Ray Donovan" leads] Liev Schreiber or Jon Voight or ["Masters of Sex" leads] Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan getting nominations.

Was it bittersweet to have "Homeland" make it into the Outstanding Drama Series race only to have "Dexter" exit the category?
"The great thing was that Michael C. Hall still gets nominated among the six best actors on television. ... The upcoming season the show is I think completely revitalized. I expect it's going to rock some people when it comes out in the fall. The next two seasons of "Dexter," it's on a pretty ferocious path.

Beyoncé's dad's new girl group reach 'X Factor' Boot Camp

Beyonce's dad's MTV girl group From Above have reached the Boot Camp stages of this year's X Factor UK.

From Above appeared with Matthew Knowles on the MTV fly-on-the-wall series Breaking From Above, which featured the girls being put through hardcore physical, vocal, media and choreography training by the US music exec and manager.

Knowles was famously the manager of Destiny's Child and worked as a producer and executive producer on many of the group's projects.

He previously claimed that his new five-piece reminded him of his daughter's multi-platinum group.

From Above have survived the cull of contestants from this year's X Factor, which reportedly featured 60 acts being booted off the show before even singing at Boot Camp.

The group have been allowed to audition for the ITV1 talent show following the change of rules from Simon Cowell, which now allows signed acts, or acts with management, to audition.

Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' Undergoes Writer Turnover

"The Newsroom" is undergoing a big staff change. But don't worry -- Will McAvoy will still be at the fictional cable news network ACN.

The Aaron Sorkin-created HBO drama is undergoing an upheaval in its writing staff, with Sorkin replacing a number of writers on the staff.

The extent of the turnover is not known. According to one report, Sorkin is replacing all but one writer, Corinne Kingsbury. However, an individual familiar with the situation told TheWrap that the report is exaggerated, and that Kingsbury isn't the only holdover.

HBO confirmed to TheWrap that changes are being made to the "Newsroom" writing staff, telling TheWrap in a statement, "Every year each show reassesses the needs of its writing staffs. This process is nothing out of the ordinary."

The series, which premiered June 24, has been picked up for a second season.

Though "The Newsroom" has received lukewarm reaction from critics, the series has performed well on the ratings front, grabbing 2.1 million total viewers with its premiere airing, and topping those numbers with its third episode.

'Geordie Shore': Rebecca Walker is latest cast member to leave show

Rebecca Walker has become the latest cast member to depart MTV reality series Geordie Shore.

The "feisty fittie", who joined the show in series two, announced the news on Twitter earlier today.

"I'm leaving Geordie Shore! I've had a mint time - Cancun was crazy and I'm glad to be going out on a high. Big thanks to all my fans," said Walker.

"You haven't seen the last of me, looking forward to future projects."

Her co-star James Tindale tweeted back: "You will be a miss Becca, all the best for the future."

Charlotte-Letitia Crosby added: "[Rebecca is] an amazing gorgeous and strong little fire cracker. Never a dull moment, love her rants, she has me in stitches. Not going to be the same being in a room and you not being there. It's always been me, you and Holly in our tip of a room eating Big Macs in bed."

Walker's departure follows the announcement that original cast member Jay Gardner will also be leaving the show.

MTV confirmed earlier this year that it was recruiting new stars for the fourth run of the show, which will be filmed during the summer.

Geordie Shore: Chaos In Cancun is currently airing on Tuesdays at 10pm on MTV.

Al Franken's Former 'SNL' Partner Tom Davis Dead at 59

Tom Davis, one half of the comedy team Franken and Davis that also included comedian-turned-Minnesota senator Al Franken, died Thursday at his Hudson, N.Y. home of throat and neck cancer, the New York Times reports. Davis was 59.

Franken and Davis grew up in Minnesota together and performed skits in high school. They later served as some of the earliest writers for "Saturday Night Live," joining the show in 1975, also appearing occasionally in skits on the series. The pair contributed to some of the most memorable moments in the series' nascent days, helping to craft the Coneheads characters. Davis also worked with Dan Aykroyd on the latter's famous imitation of celebrity chef Julia Child, during which Aykroyd-as-Child bleeds to death after a grave kitchen injury.

The pair also wrote the screenplay and appeared in the 1986 comedy "One More Saturday Night," and had cameos in "Trading Places" and "The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash."

Though Davis was overshadowed by Franken, he won his share of accolades, including three shared Emmys for his work on "SNL," and another for his work on 1977's "The Paul Simon Special."

Davis originally wrote for "SNL" from 1975 to 1980, and returned for another run that lasted from 1986 to 1994. Though he retired in the mid-1990s, he occasionally continued to write for the show as late as 2003.

In addition to his work for the big and small screen, Davis also penned a memoir, “Thirty-Nine Years of Short-Term Memory Loss: The Early Days of SNL From Someone Who Was There,” which was published in 2009.

Davis is survived by his wife, Mimi Raleigh, as well as his brother Robert and mother Jean Davis.

Plan B criticises 'X Factor' celebrity and image focus

Plan B has taken a swipe at Simon Cowell's The X Factor, criticising it for being about image and celebrity rather than making great music.

The 'ill Manors' singer ruled out ever appearing on the ITV1 reality show, claiming that he would be "neglecting" his musical gift if he were to use the show as a platform.

"No disrespect to anyone involved in those shows, but all they do is boost your profile as a celebrity," he told Shortlist.

"There are a lot of pop acts with just a pretty face and a half-decent voice. They don't even write their own s**t. I'm lucky enough to have a gift that allows me to create things from nothing: music, films, fictional characters. Others don't have that, so their work goes into their image as a celebrity.

"So, if I have a gift like this, wouldn't I be neglecting it if I appeared on a show like The X Factor?"

Plan B also claimed that the reason he turned down the chance to work with Jay-Z was because it had been set up by industry people rather than personally by the US rapper.

"I want people like [Jay-Z] to come to me and say, 'I like what you're doing, let's collaborate'. Otherwise, I'd just be licking their arse," he said.

"Music should be a personal thing, the minute you start thinking, 'Who can I get in with?' you're basically saying you don't give a f**k about artistic expression. You only give a f**k about money."

Adam Lambert to Guest on 'Pretty Little Liars' Halloween Show

Adam Lambert has scared up another gig for himself.

The "American Idol" favorite and "For Your Entertainment" singer will guest star as himself on the Halloween episode of the ABC drama "Pretty Little Liars."

Lambert will also perform two songs on the episode, which will air in October.

Lambert's sophomore studio album, "Trespassing," was released in May.

'Inbetweeners' co-creator defends US remake: 'Don't pre-judge it'

The Inbetweeners co-creator Iain Morris has defended the show's US remake.

A trailer for MTV's revamp of the E4 comedy recently debuted online, provoking a hostile reaction from some fans of the original.

Writing on his Twitter account, Morris explained: "I'm not going to comment on the American Inbetweeners a lot because I have to use Twitter for more interesting things like complaining, but the pilot director, Taika Waititi, has made consistently funny TV shows and one of my favourite films of all time in [2010 comedy-drama] Boy.

"Brad [Copeland], the showrunner, is a very funny man who has worked on Arrested Development and My Name is Earl, two shows I love. Damon [Beesley] and I didn't have a lot to do with it because we wanted it to be different and American, and it is, I think in a positive way."

Morris urged fans of the UK Inbetweeners not to "pre-judge" MTV's version.

"You might like it, you might hate it, but don't pre-judge it," he wrote. "And the original will always exist. Always. Never going away."

He concluded: "Lastly, I know people are only angry about the US Inbetweeners cos they love the UK one, which is amazing really, and honestly appreciated."

The Inbetweeners will debut on MTV in the US on August 20.

HGTV Extends Production on Six Popular Series

"I Want That," "Million Dollar Rooms," "Kitchen Cousins" and "Celebrities at Home" are among those due back.

HGTV extended production of six popular series, ordering new episodes of Elbow Room, starring contractor Chip Wade who transforms homes with customized renovations to perfectly fit the homeowners' needs, as well as I Want That, a series that spotlights the most outrageous innovations and the latest home trends and must-haves for modern living. Additionally, HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms, hosted by Carter Oosterhouse, will continue to feature one-of-a-kind multi-million dollar spaces around the globe.

Going Yard landscape professional Chris Lambton and wife Peyton Lambton continue to work together to transform neglected backyards into spectacular outdoor spaces suitable for entertaining family and friends, while Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri remodel troubled kitchens and turn them into dream cooking spaces.

HGTV also has picked up an additional four special one-hour episodes of Celebrities at Home featuring Emmy(R) Award-winning entertainment reporter and series executive producer Nancy O'Dell as she tours celebrity homes to reveal the design inspiration for their favorite living spaces.

"Some of our most successful shows are those that feature experts who come to the rescue of real homeowners who don't know how to resolve a design or construction problem," said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. "Our audiences also love that HGTV provides pure voyeuristic fun with shows that feature fantasy celebrity lifestyle and over-the-top home trends."

Stephen Mulhern's 'Catchphrase' revival ordered to pilot by ITV

ITV has ordered a pilot of a new series of Catchphrase fronted by Stephen Mulhern.

The classic gameshow, which was most famously presented by Roy Walker in the '80s and '90s, has been the subject of reboot rumours for some time, with the broadcaster's interest in the iconic format first reported in May.

STV Productions is now advertising for audience members for a pilot recording, which will feature Britain's Got More Talent presenter Mulhern as the host.

The original format will remain, although the show will be updated with new 3D graphics and a new concluding game, reports Broadcast.

Mulhern's pilot will be filmed in London on August 27.

Catchphrase originally ran for more than 300 episodes on ITV from 1986 to 2002.

'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith on new companion: 'She's very different'

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has praised his new co-star Jenna-Louise Coleman.

The actor told SFX that Coleman's new companion character - widely believed to be named Clara - will be "very different" to her predecessor Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

"I think Steven's writing her in a very interesting way - in a different way to Amy Pond," he said. "I can't really tell you too much about her and her story because it's all top-secret as always... but we're very excited and we're planning to make the show with her bigger and better than ever and just keep moving forward."

Smith continued: "Jenna's doing a wonderful job, she's a wonderful actress and very dedicated."

The 29-year-old added that he will miss "great friends" Gillan and Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), who will depart Doctor Who midway through the seventh series.

"I'm going to miss them terribly," he admitted. "[But] it is a show that is always evolving and by its very nature regenerates itself so you've got to... move with the times."

Doctor Who will return to BBC One in August.

Mark Wright: 'I don't miss The Only Way Is Essex'

Mark Wright has revealed that he doesn't miss being part of The Only Way Is Essex.

The reality TV star quit the series in October last year in order to work on other projects, such as Mark Wright's Hollywood Nights.

Mark Wright at The European Premiere of 'The Dark Knight Rises' held at the Odeon West End, London, England - 18.07.12

He explained that leaving the show was the right decision, as he found the series "stressful".

"I miss the people, TOWIE is always going to be in my heart. I wouldn't necessarily say I miss being in it, it was quite stressful and it was a lot of pressure," he told BANG Showbiz.

However, he added that he was looking forward to watching the latest sixth series of the show, which premieres on Sunday (July 22).

"I love watching TOWIE and I'm going to get the popcorn in ready for Sunday. I can't wait! I can just relax and watch it all happen now, which is great."

The Only Way Is Essex returns on Sunday, July 22 on ITV2.

Heidi Klum and 'Project Runway': Nervous Networks, Weird Challenges

Supermodel, super businesswoman: That’s Heidi Klum, the "Project Runway" host, former Victoria’s Secret “angel,” actress, spokesperson, videogame star, clothing designer, fragrance entrepreneur, singer and famous Halloween enthusiast. As Klum and her "Runway" co-stars prepare to premiere their 10th season in July, she talks to TheWrap about her early fear that the show would tank her fashion career, why the show’s contestants need to do a better job of using their reality-TV fame and how one of her favorite outfits of all time involved a guy in a mattress.

Are you doing anything differently for the 10th season?
We have already been discussing our challenges and what kind of guest judges we are going to have. We always want to improve. When we started, we never thought that we would make it this far. [Laughs] It was something that we started filming in the dark, not really knowing how it would be perceived by the public or the people in the fashion industry. Especially the fashion industry, which can sometimes be a little bit snobby. We were a little worried that we would still have a job. But they were on our side.

What did you hope viewers would like about it? Was there something specific that you wanted them to see about how the fashion industry works?
I tried to explain to people, before it came on the air, that it was more documentary style than reality TV. At that time, when we premiered, thisGetty Images word, reality, gave people a bit of a bad taste. We were watching people eating maggots mixed with eyeballs made into a drink. I was like, 'Oh, my God! Why are people doing this? Why are we watching this?' That was part of what made it hard when we tried to sell the show. Also, we were going to all these different networks and they were saying, 'Why would we want to watch people make clothes? What is so interesting about this?' They didn’t understand why that would be interesting. But you can see that people love talent. If it is singing, like on "America’s Got Talent" or those shows, people just love watching other people’s talent.

What’s your favorite part of doing the show?
Thinking about challenges. My favorite challenges are the unconventional ones, when they have to make something out of unconventional materials and make it look wearable. We had a challenge one year where the designers had to make something out of car parts. Some of the most amazing things
happened. They used the belt or some glass from the mirror and sewed it into a dress. When people are forced to work with this kind of stuff, they get really creative and come up with some amazing designs.

Are you ever nervous that some of the challenges are just too outrageous?
On the very first episode, I was worried. We decided to do the challenge where they got $50 and they could go into a supermarket for 30 minutes and then make an outfit. I was really worried about that because I thought, 'This is going to set the tone of our show, and if they don’t come up with something that is up to standard, then we’re going to tank.' Then when we were sitting there at the runway, the music started and the first few models came out, I was like, 'Yes!' That was a make-or-break time, and we took a chance on such a strange challenge. I’m not worried anymore, though, because the designers have shown, year after year, that they can actually make real fashion out of nothing or out of weird things.

With "Runway," obviously, the contestants need to have a certain skill level to compete. How tough is it to come up with the right mix every season?
Well, in our show we can’t cast for personality because it’s based on talent. If we have someone who is really fun and flamboyant, but they can’t sew, they’re off the air. They won’t make it far, so what’s the point? You can’t fake that. They have to make fashion in front of people who are really in the fashion industry.

Do you have a wish list of people that you would like to be judges?
Yes, of course. I would love to have the First Lady, Michelle Obama. I’ve been saying it over and over. You guys just have to write more about it so it will get to her. [Laughing] And there are always great actresses that we love and that are very fashionable. We want to have people that are not just famous -- we want people that really have something to do with fashion and walk on the red carpet a lot, or that write about fashion.

Who have been some of your favorite guest judges?
I think people enjoy watching designers they’ve heard of but have never seen talk. Bob Mackie, for example. I’m a huge fan of Bob Mackie. I have a huge Barbie collection of all of Bob Mackie’s designs. Also, Roberto Cavalli. He’s so funny. His phone was ringing all the time.. He was smoking during the whole taping, but there is never smoking anywhere. But Roberto had to smoke, and the phone was ringing. We’re like, 'Roberto, we’re in the middle of a take, can you turn your phone off?' He’s like [adopts an Italian accent], 'But amore, I don’t know who’s going to call.'

Are the show’s famous fans -- Meryl Streep has said she loves the show, for instance -- approaching you to be guest judges?
Yeah, all the time. Just recently, Julia Roberts’ niece, Emma Roberts. She’s a really cute young actress. She was like, 'I would love to be a guest judge on "Project Runway.”" She’s cute and she dresses really nice, so we’ll see.

Did you coin your catchphrase, “One day you’re in, the next day you’re out”?
That didn’t come from me. What came from me was 'Auf Wiedersehen,' which I’m proud of. We couldn’t come up with anything. It was like, 'Should it be, "You’re cut, loser, get off my runway?”' [Laughing] We had all these different things that were flying around the room. I was like, 'Well, what we say at home is "Auf Wiedersehen."' People were all laughing. They
thought it sounded funny.

Do you keep in touch with the designers from the show? Have you worn some of their designs after the show?
I always try. It would be easier if the designers had a little bit more of a push themselves. If I were a designer, and I heard someone say, 'I would love to wear that,' I would be on their case. I would make it. I would be like, 'What are your measurements?' I would hustle to make sure that person gets what they wanted. The truth is that not everyone does that. I think a lot of them miss the boat, unfortunately. You have this notoriety all of a sudden. People are like, 'Oh, my God. There is the person from "Project Runway." We just watched you on TV for the last few weeks.' You have to ride that wave a little bit and hustle a little bit. Not everyone does.

You’re known for your annual Halloween party. What inspires you to plan this elaborate bash every year?
When I first came to America, I was always missing a good Halloween party. I thought nobody takes Halloween seriously here. People put on a red nose or a little cone on their head and they’re like, 'Wow, that’s an outfit.' [Laughing] Or they go, 'I'll go really sexy.' So I just said, 'I'm just going to have to do my own party.' I have to be so over-the-top in my
outfit that people will not be afraid to also push themselves a little bit to come up with something fun. I feel like I achieved that. I feel that people’s costumes have been more
outrageous and over-the-top. I love that. I have seen amazing costumes. I remember one guy came as a mattress. Literally, he took the inside out of the mattress and stuck his whole body in there and walked around the entire party as a mattress.

Big Brother Scott, Ashleigh warned over comments "stereotyping" Deana

Big Brother housemates Scott Mason and Ashleigh Hughes have been warned over controversial comments today.

The pair had been talking about fellow housemate and Miss India UK Deana Uppal's eating habits when the incident occurred.

Earlier today, Ashleigh told other housemates how Deana was "really irritating" her and described her as a "lost zombie".

Scott agreed, saying that Deana was in her "own little bubble".

She added: "She's definitely 100% doing it for the cameras now," which was met with agreement from Conor McIntyre.

After she commented that she didn't like the way Deana eats her food, Ashleigh did an impression of her, causing other housemates to laugh.

Ashleigh continued to recall how she once told Deana that she had milk around her mouth while eating cereal, and that she wiped her mouth with her hand. She also noted how Deana prefers to eat her cereal with her hands instead of a spoon.

She added: "Do you know what, they used to do that in my dad's takeaway, my dad owned an Indian takeaway and they used to eat everything with their hands."

"I think it's the culture," Scott replied. Ashleigh added: "I just wanted to give her the spoon."

Later, Scott was called into the Diary Room, where they told him: "Before you entered the Big Brother house you were reminded of the rules regarding unacceptable language and behaviour. You were told that Big Brother will intervene and take appropriate action if housemates behave in a way that Big Brother considers to be unacceptable.

"Earlier today at 4.46pm you had the following conversation with Ashleigh. Big Brother believes that your use of language in this conversation could be seen as stereotyping and therefore potentially offensive. Do you understand?"

Scott replied: "Oops, I'm sorry."

Big Brother continued: "Big Brother has no option other than to issue you with a formal warning; if you use this type of language again we may have to consider removing you from the Big Brother house. Do you understand Scott?"

He replied: "Now that I hear it back it sounds really bad. That's really horrible 'cos I do actually like Deana and I wouldn't want to be horrible, like. I'm sorry for getting carried away and talking about someone, especially like that. I'm really sorry about that."

After Ashleigh received a similar warning, Big Brother continued: "[Bullying] can include factions developing, tensions, arguments and ostracising of individuals. Examples of bullying could be excluding people ridiculing or humiliating people, name calling, sarcasm and rumour spreading."

"I am sorry, it's not very nice," Ashleigh replied. "I didn't mean to make people feel ostracised, but I understand my actions and I'm really sorry. I am really sorry."

Big Brother was involved in a high-profile race incident when Jade Goody, Jo O'Meara and Danielle Lloyd made controversial comments about Indian contestant Shilpa Shetty in 2007.

After a lengthy investigation, Ofcom ruled that Channel 4 had breached codes of conduct over the episode, causing statutory sanctions being placed on the channel.

Emmys' Biggest Snubs & Oversights

Let's start by saying a few nice things about Emmy voters. They did a good job of not letting sentiment influence their choices with this year's nominations.

No one was guaranteed a nomination just because they were nominated before. Some past shoo-ins -- including "American Idol" -- were dumped from big categories to make room for splashy new shows. It was the first time "Idol" wasn't nominated, and, adding insult to injury, it lost its place to its NBC rival, "The Voice."

Emmy voters get a lot of heat for conservative choices, but that wasn't the case this year. "American Horror Story," which tied "Mad Men" for the most nominations with 17, is one of the most graphic shows on television, and part of a genre -- horror -- that rarely gets the respect it deserves. HBO's "Girls," which is filled with sex and drugs, also scored several nods.

Yes, the voters seemed to swoon a little in the presence of movie stars, including lead comedy nominee Don Cheadle, star of Showtime's "House of Lies." But movie stardom only goes so far -- two-time Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman didn't score a lead actor nod for HBO's canceled "Luck," for example.

That said, here's a look at the snubs that will have some viewers shaking their heads. We apologize to any shows we snub from the list of snubs. There's a lot of TV out there.

"American Idol": This goes down as one of the year's biggest surprises. Given the show's falling ratings and the exit of Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, it's under added pressure to revamp itself next year.

"The Good Wife": The CBS drama's exit from the Outstanding Drama Series race was bad news for the show and the broadcast networks in general: Had it been in contention again this year, it would have been the only Big 4 network series competing in the category. It did, however, snag seven other nominations, one for casting and six for acting. One went to last year's best dramatic actress, Juliana Margulies.

"Louie": The FX comedy is one of the best shows on TV. In May, we said it had a solid claim to the Emmy for best comedy. But it isn't even nominated. But lead actor/director/writer Louis C.K. can be happy about three nominations for lead acting, directing, and writing. His FX comedy special "Louis C.K.: Live at The Beacon Theatre," got an additional four nods.

"Parks and Recreation": Maybe it's better that Nick Offerman missed out on announcing the awards, as he had been scheduled to do. Heavy rain prevented him from traveling from the East Coast, so he didn't have to maintain a smile as his show was denied a second nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. Offerman, meanwhile, didn't get a supporting actor nomination.

Hugh Laurie, "House": No obligatory dramatic actor nomination for the actor, despite his final year on the long-lasting Fox drama.

"Luck": Is it tempting fate to name your show "Luck"? This time last year, the horse track drama's Emmy odds couldn't have looked better thanks to its pedigree: Not just Hoffman but Nick Nolte on-screen, and Michael Mann and David Milch holding the reins. But the show was canceled after the deaths of three horses, and Emmy voters gave it no love.

"Community": The low-rated NBC comedy gets lots of critical praise but hasn't broken through with Emmy voters. They could have stuck it to NBC for dumping creator and showrunner Dan Harmon by giving his final season a heap of nominations. But the past Emmy winner -- for animation -- got just one, for best comedy writing.

John Slattery, "Mad Men" (Warning: Contains a big plot spoiler from last season): What's a guy got to do to get a supporting dramatic actor nod? Kill himself, apparently. That's what Jared Harris's character did last season, and Emmy voters rewarded Harris by nominating him in the category in place of repeat nominee Slattery. Slattery's character merely dropped acid and decided to end his marriage.

"Glee" and "The Office": "The Office," a past winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, didn't even get a nomination this time around. "Glee" also went without a nomination, despite getting one for its previous two seasons. "The Office" can take heart: At least it survived the exit of lead actor Steve Carell. And "Glee" creators Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy can be happy about the 17 nominations for their other show, "American Horror Story." (Only Emmy-magnet "Mad Men" scored so many nods.)

Dish Network Defies Analysts' Dismal Expectations, Loses 10,000 Subscribers

Dish Network defied analysts' bleak outlook for the second quarter, during which it lost 10,000 subscribers compared to 135,000 in the same period last year.

Chairman Charlie Ergen said the satellite television titan added 665,000 gross new customers and averaged a monthly churn rate of 1.6 percent, according to a regulatory filing with the FCC.

Marci Ryvicker, an analyst at Wells Fargo & Co., said in the filing that she anticipated 577,000 new subscribers and a net subscriber decline of 119,000, while Douglas Mitchelson, of Deutsche Bank AG, had predicted a loss of 115,000 customers.

"We feel much better than expected sub numbers should ease investor fears about Dish's core business, which many were nervous about heading into earnings," Ryvicker wrote in the report.

The positive uptick comes at a time that Dish is trying to transform itself into a wireless company as it awaits a green light from the FCC to use its spectrum to transmit mobile video.

The company will report second-quarter earnings next month.
