Production for Nickelodeon's hottest teen show "Sam and Cat" is now suspended due to behind-the-scenes tensions. With a long 40-episode order for the first season, insiders say the grueling work schedule has led to "sniping" between the teen stars Ariana Grande and Jenette McCurdy. At the Kids' Choice Awards last week, it won as the top TV show with Grande also winning as best TV actress. McCurdy did not attend the ceremony. Grande's sudden exploding musical career has also led to some of the tensions. Producers are hoping a "much-needed rest" will allow for production to resume in the near future. Variety.

Are "American Idol" judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. pulling a fast one on America?

Every week, the contestant who receives the lowest number of America's votes gets to sing a last-chance Save Me song, then the judges are supposed to deliberate amongst themselves for whether or not they'll bail out the contestant from elimination by using their sole Judges' Save of the season.

But are the judges really deliberating? Or is it all for show?

On Monday's "The Colbert Report," star Stephen Colbert strikes back at activists complaining about a recent Twitter post from his show's account. He spent the entire show comedically defending his position and said, "The interwebs tried to swallow me whole. But I am proud to say that I got lodged in its throat and it hacked me back up like a hastily chewed chicken wing." Last week's tweet was a repeat of a joke out of context: "I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever." That sparked an entire #CancelColbert hashtag campaign. "The dark forces trying to silence my message of core conservative principles mixed with youth-friendly product placement have been thwarted!" Colbert exclaimed to cheers. The Wrap.
