Kylie Minogue open to 'The X Factor': 'It could be really fulfilling'

Kylie Minogue has said that she is open to becoming a judge on The X Factor, noting that such a role could be "really fulfilling".

The 'Flower' singer, whose sister Dannii Minogue sat on the panel from 2007 to 2010, admitted that starring on the show is probably not as challenging or scary as she's imagined.

Asked if she'd ever come to The X Factor, Minogue said: "I don't know. It might be like a lot of things in life where thinking about it is more difficult than doing it.

"I think if I was driven to the studio and told I was doing it, then I'd get into it and I might find it really fulfilling."

She continued: "I'm sure I've got enough to offer [as a judge]. I've been there and never had anyone hold my hand, so it would be quite nice to do that for someone else.

"But for the moment, I'm happy just watching."

Minogue also admitted to being a fan of controversial X Factor contestant Rylan Clark, declaring that the ex-boyband member has "won a place in people's hearts".

"I love Rylan, of course I do. I think it's brilliant he's been put through," she told New. "Who's the person who gets the most attention? I think he's been great for the show."

Minogue recently denied rumours that she is being lined up as a coach on The Voice Australia following Keith Urban's defection to American Idol.

Obama to Do Live MTV Q&A Friday

President Obama will be interviewed on MTV Friday live from the White House as he reaches out to younger voters.

"Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview with the President,” will air at 5 p.m. ET and be tape delayed until 5 p.m. PT Friday. The 30-minute special will air on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams, and on and MTV’s mobile platform.

MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway will sit down with Obama while correspondent Andrew Jenks fields questions from voters on a Washington, D.C. campus.

It was during an MTV interview 20 years ago that Bill Clinton fielded the infamous "boxers or briefs" question. But don't expect a repeat: many of Obama's questioners this time around weren't alive then to see it.

Obama will appear on MTV two days after he goes after slightly older voters by stopping by "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

MTV has invited Mitt Romney to sit down for an interview, but he has not yet accepted.

'PhoneShop' star Tom Bennett joins Chris O'Dowd HBO comedy

PhoneShop actor Tom Bennett has joined Chris O'Dowd's new HBO comedy.

Family Tree - from This Is Spinal Tap's Christopher Guest - will focus on Tom Chadwick (O'Dowd), a man searching for his long-lost relatives who stumbles across a string of unusual characters and stories.

Bennett will play Tom's best friend, while actress and comedian Nina Conti has also been cast as the lead's sister, Deadline reports.

Amy Seimetz has also joined Family Tree as aspiring writer Ally, who meets Tom when he visits Los Angeles.

The comedy - which will be filmed in a mockumentary-style like much of Guest's past work - started life as a pilot and was ordered to series in August.

Michael McKean (Smallville) and Fred Willard (Anchorman) were previously confirmed to have landed supporting roles.

Family Tree is expected to run for around eight episodes, with BBC Two screening the show in the UK.

Jimmy Savile branded a necrophiliac by ex-BBC colleague

Jimmy Savile has been accused by an ex-BBC colleague of being a necrophiliac who engaged in sexual acts with "under-age sub-normals".

Paul Gambaccini, who started working as a Radio 1 DJ in 1973, told Nicky Campbell on Radio 5 Live he became aware of the allegations against Savile in the 1980s, and had heard of them being discussed by a reporter at a wedding 10 years ago.

Campbell reminded Gambaccini that his "particularly lurid accusation" was not yet in the public domain, prompting the guest to question why.

Gambaccini went on to say: "The expression I came to associate with Savile's sexual partners was either one used by production assistants or one I made up to summarise their reports... 'under-age subnormals'.

"He targeted the institutionalised, the hospitalised - and this was known. Why did Jimmy go to hospitals? That's where the patients were."

Gambaccini described the late presenter as "a man who conned an entire society" at a time when paedophilia was "considered so far beyond the pale that people didn't believe it happened".

Savile's great niece Caroline Robinson revealed this week that the TV personality had sexually assaulted her when she was just 12 years old.

BBC director general George Entwistle told MPs today (October 23) that the corporation is investigating up to 10 "serious allegations" of sexual harassment involving past and present employees, and expressed his "grave regret" over the scandal.

His comments followed the broadcast of a Panorama documentary last night regarding an axed Newsnight investigation into Savile's behaviour.

Peter Rippon, editor of the latter programme, confirmed this week that he is "stepping aside" from the role following his decision to drop the report.

It was recently announced that the Metropolitan Police enquiry into alleged sexual abuse of children by Jimmy Savile and others has now become a formal criminal investigation.

Jane Fonda Signs on for ABC Comedy Pilot

Jane Fonda is following up her stint on the HBO drama "The Newsroom" with another television gig.

Fonda, better known for her big-screen efforts such as "On Golden Pond" and "Barbarella," has signed on to star in a comedy in development at ABC, entitled "Now What?"

The project centers on the aftermath when an adult daughter publicly calls out her semi-estranged mother for all the horrors she's inflicted throughout her life. Mom moves in and refuses to leave until they work it all out.

Fonda would also serve as an executive producer on the comedy. "Pushing Daisies" and "John From Cincinnati" vet Abby Gewanter will write and co-executive produce the project, with Scott Ellis ("Weeds," "2 Broke Girls") directing as well as executive-producing.

Former "Smallville" and "One Tree Hill" executive producer Mike Tollin will also executive produce.

Vegas,' 'Elementary' Get Full-Season Orders

CBS's freshman dramas "Vegas" and "Elementary" have received full-season orders.

Though NBC's new "Revolution" is beating both in the 18-49 demographic, the CBS shows are thriving in total viewers.

"Vegas," a period gangster drama starring Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis, averages 14.9 million viewers and a 2.7 rating/8 share in the demo. It is up 8 percent in viewers in its Tuesdays-at-10 timeslot.

"Elementary," starring Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson, averages 14.3 million viewers and a 3.5/10 in the demo. It is up 17 percent in adults 18-49 in its Thursdays-at-10 slot.

“'Vegas' and 'Elementary' have opened strong, delivering big audiences and winning performances in important time periods,” said Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment. ”Each of the shows has rich characters, big stars and a unique visual style that have stood out in the crowd, helping make two of our strongest nights even stronger.”

Another new CBS drama, "Made in Jersey," was the first show to be pulled this season.

24 Alum Annie Wersching Heading to Dallas

Annie Wersching is Dallas-bound!

The 24 alum has landed a recurring role on the TNT series. Wersching will play an ambitious transportation commissioner who may be a potential love interest for John Ross (Josh Henderson) and/or Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe) — even though she's married!

Wersching, who will next appear on Body of Proof, joins previously announced Dallas guest stars Emma Bell, Judith Light and Mexican film star Kuno Becker, along with Knots Landing stars Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark.

Dallas kicks off its second season in January.

'Strictly Come Dancing' Anton Du Beke upset over Jerry Hall exit

Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke has spoken of his disappointment to have left the competition with partner Jerry Hall.

Jerry Hall became the second celebrity to be voted out of the BBC show in its current 10th series on Sunday (October 21).

Du Beke stated that he felt the show judges did not hand Hall a fair review and should have given her another chance.

"Jerry danced really well on Saturday night but the improvement she made wasn't reflected in her marks from the judges," he told The Sun.

"Their comments were heavily weighted towards her posture - which does need work - and not the way she actually moved on the dancefloor.

"The show is called Strictly Come Dancing, so you would have thought that side of things would have been considered - but apparently not."

He added: "I'm not saying Jerry went from beginner to fabulous in a week but there was an improvement and I had hoped the marks would improve.

"There were no gimmicks to our routine, I didn't swing her in or drag her across the floor. We did a proper dance with depth and Jerry was quite capable.

"She is a super lady and I'm sad we will not get to spend more time together. I have no idea why people didn't pick up the phone and vote for Jerry.

"But I think if the judges had given her another chance the viewers would have got to know her better and loved her. She's an absolute legend."

Anton Du Beke also insisted that he doesn't mind which celebrity he is partnered with each series, and said that his favourite moments are sometimes with the less talented stars.

"I don't care who I get. There's no advantage to getting the so-called favourite because you don't know how good they are at that point.

"If I had been paired with the favourite two years ago I wouldn't have got Ann Widdecombe and that was my favourite series so far."

He added: "This year Louis Smith is a favourite, Lisa Riley is doing well - although some dances won't suit her - and Denise Van Outen and Kimberley Walsh are dancing nicely.

"But things can change so quickly. All it takes is a bad dance at the wrong time and you've gone. I've seen lots of good dancers ruin things with one bad routine."

'X Factor' James Arthur accused of copying YouTube star on LMFAO cover

James Arthur has been accused of copying an established YouTube act on last Saturday's episode of The X Factor.

Arthur performed a version of LMFAO's 'Sexy And I Know It' on the third live week of the show and won praise from all four judges.

However, the rendition has drawn comparisons by fans to YouTube singer Only1Noah, whose performance of the hit song was uploaded five months ago and has since received 13.5 million hits on the video-sharing site.

Angry users left comments underneath Only1Noah's video, including kay1951 who said "james arthur so not original how disappointing", with SilverMustang69 adding: 'Dear Noah… Please sue X Factor UK for using an "exact" copy of your interpretation/rendition of the song."

On Saturday, Louis Walsh called Arthur's song a "brilliant rendition", and Gary Barlow added that he thought it was "amazing amazing amazing" and "the performance of the series so far".

Charlize Theron Developing Viking Drama -- Yes, That's Right -- With ABC

Charlize Theron tackled futuristic topics this year's sci-fi epic "Prometheus." Now she's going old-school -- very old-school -- for a new project at ABC.

Theron is working with the network to develop "The Clan," a drama set in the Highlands of medieval Scotland. And because, when one thinks Charlize Theron, one's mind naturally drifts to Vikings, yes -- there are Vikings involved.

The project will follow the various clans of medieval Scotland as they battle each other, while simultaneously fending off Viking invaders.

"Hotel Rwanda" director Terry George will write and direct the project, as well as serve as an executive producer.

Theron's Denver and Delilah production company will executive-produce the project in conjunction with ABC Studios.

Earlier this year, Theron sold a modern-day version of the Hatfields and McCoys saga to NBC.

Ann Coulter: 'Retard' Jokes = Good. Cancer Jokes = Bad

Great news, aspiring pundits, comedians, and pundit-comedians: Ann Coulter is here to teach you about what is and isn't offensive in political comedy. You don't even have to go to some musty old theater, because the master is dishing out lessons for free on Twitter.

After Monday's presidential debate, Coulter referred to President Obama as "the retard" in a tweet.

She was widely criticized by people lacking her finely calibrated gift for sniffing out what is and isn't acceptable to say. She demonstrated that gift Tuesday, when she called out Obama for saying Mitt Romney has "stage 3 Romneysia."

Since cancer is the only thing on earth that happens in stages, Coulter deduced that the president was making light of cancer and people dying from it.

"Obama: 'Stage 3 Romneysia' - because cancer references are HILARIOUS," she tweeted. "If he's 'the smartest guy in the room' it must be one retarded room."

To be clear: Coulter was being sarcastic, and doesn't think cancer jokes are hilarious at all.

Retard jokes, though? Never get old.

Mick Hucknall BBC talent show rejected in favour of 'The Voice' UK

Mick Hucknall has revealed that he attempted to launch his own TV talent show on the BBC.

The Simply Red singer claims that his concept to find the next "musical icon" was rejected in favour of The Voice UK last year.

Hucknall hoped to find creative artists who could be turned into global superstars in a format that was said to be different from The Voice and The X Factor.

"I approached the BBC about a year ago with the idea of a programme," he told the Daily Express. "I said I wanted to find the next David Bowie, the next Freddie Mercury, the next Lennon and McCartney but they rejected it and went for The Voice instead, which to me was another version of The X Factor because it's not about creative artists."

He added: "I would call on them to devise a programme to find the next Elton or the next Mick Hucknall.

"The BBC are the people to do it because they represent British culture; they should be looking to find the next musical icon."

'The Voice' Going Live for 3 Nights on Election Week

"The Voice" is getting into the election spirit.

NBC's hit singing competition is upping its broadcasts for election week, airing three live shows surrounding election day, the network said Monday.

In addition to its regularly scheduled airing Monday, Nov. 5 from 8 to 10 p.m., "The Voice" will run the Wednesday following election day from 8 to 10, with another episode Thursday, Nov. 8 at 8.

NBC will not air "The Voice" on that Tuesday as it normally would, because apparently there's something else going on that night that the network feels it should cover instead.

Melissa George talks 'Hunted' series two plans: 'It's set in Berlin'

Melissa George has spoken about a potential second series of her spy thriller Hunted.

The drama - created by Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) - is currently airing on BBC One in the UK and on Cinemax in the US.

"[Frank has] given me a pretty good idea [of where series two would go]," George told IGN.

"It's all going to be about Sam's journey, finding out and putting the pieces together. She won't be the nanny anymore."

The actress - who plays Sam Hunter - added that a second series of Hunted would be set in Berlin.

"Next year it's in Berlin, and there's a whole link to Hourglass, which is the covenant group that killed her mother," said George. "So there will be a lot of accents and things like that."

The Australian star previously stated that her Hunted role "could potentially be long-term", adding that she may be playing Sam "for the next five years".

Ashley Walters teases 'Doctor Who' guest appearance

Ashley Walters has offered details of his Doctor Who guest appearance.

The So Solid Crew rapper-turned-actor first revealed that he is appearing in a 2013 Doctor Who episode in September, admitting the he got in trouble for tweeting images of the shoot.

Walters has now revealed to Radio Times that his Doctor Who instalment - said to be called 'Journey to the Centre of the Tardis' - centres on an exploration of The Doctor's blue box.

"In our episode, it'll be the first time people get to see so much of the Tardis," he hinted.

Walters went on to praise Doctor Who star Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, who plays the Time Lord's new companion.

"You can't beat being in Doctor Who - it's something I've grown up with my whole life and working with Matt Smith was amazing," the star revealed. "He's a really, really good actor and just being a part of that huge BBC franchise was an incredible thing.

"And Jenna-Louise Coleman is really good at what she does - it seems like she's enjoying her job and I loved working with her."

Coleman makes her official debut as The Doctor's companion in the Christmas special, which will air later this year in the UK and the US.

Can we have a chat about spoilers?

Now that the dust has settled on this year's big blockbuster releases, and the likes of Doctor Who has come to an end for a while, it seems a bit of a good opportunity to discuss what constitutes an acceptable spoiler.

We try and err very much on the side of caution when putting together material for the site, and we're aware that we've come in for some criticism over spoiler-free reviews that are basically our opinion of an episode, and little more than that. This is a firm policy decision we took: we take spoiler-free as literally as we can, at most trying not to mention things that happen past the first credits, unless they're heavily in the public domain. The consequence of that, for us, is that some of our reviews aren't always the most detailed you'll read – although in our defence, they're an honest appraisal of what we've seen.

If you read beyond this point, please be aware that we're going to discuss both Doctor Who series seven, The Sixth Sense and The Dark Knight Rises. If you don't want any of those spoiled, then it's best to click on something else right about now.

Which of these, then - and we ask this with genuine interest in the answer - do you class as something that would spoil The Dark Knight Rises (and these are all examples we saw around the time of the review):

There's a big twist at the end
There's not much Batman in it
"There's more to Joseph Gordon Levitt's character than meets the eye"

Then, here's the question for Doctor Who series seven, specifically regarding the big surprise in Asylum Of The Daleks:

The Doctor visits Skaro (that bit was pre-credits)
Steven Moffat asked everyone at the press launch to keep a massive surprise a secret
The plot takes the story to a planet where the Daleks have gone mad, and the Doctor needs to save them

We ask these questions simply because we're trying to work out exactly where to draw the line. If something, in your view, is labelled spoiler-free, how much of it is fair game to reveal? Do you want to know whether something is good or bad, or do you want more detail than that?

Then, where is the statute of limitations for spoilers? There's an excellent piece over at The Shiznit on this. It talks about when Alan Sugar, in a Radio Times piece, spoiled a big moment in A Beautiful Mind. The Shiznit's views, as always, are well worth a read.

It does beg the question, though: at what stage are we allowed to say there's a big twist in something like The Sixth Sense, even if we don't say what the ending is? The film was released back in 1999 after all. The vast majority of people who read this site will know very well what happened in that particular film - but out of fairness to those who don't, how far should we go, beyond a standard spoiler warning, to keep things under wraps?
