'American Idol' 2016 Recap: Best Solo Performances From Hollywoo
American Idol started its final Hollywood week. The series filled the night with anxious hopefuls trying to make one final impression on the judges. Overall, the night felt a bit rushed. American Idol packed a lot into this short 42-minute episode. We barely saw some of the early favorites, but we saw some contestants who haven't gotten much airtime this season of Idol.

Some of them reminded us just how great their voices sound. Others proved that they were rightfully ignored in the American Idol edits. By the end of the night, 75 contestants became 51. These 51 have one last chance to pro...

Last night, American Idol 2016 held our favorite part of Hollywood week: group rounds. Besides the great performances, the most exciting part of Idol's group rounds is the backstage drama. Last night's episode was full of it.

We started to see some of the American Idol contestants' true colors. We saw some outstanding group performances--the real threats started to show. We also saw who would be willing to cut another contestant for the glory. A few of these contestants were punished by the karma police. Others lived on to fight another day on American Idol.

Way too much went down on Id...

'New Girl' Recap: 'No Girl'... Now What?

1/27/2016 9:24am EST
'New Girl' Season 5, Episode 4 Recap: 'No Girl'... Now What?
Despite the singular noun in its title, “New Girl” is very much an ensemble show. But while Nick, Schmidt, Winston, and Cece have all managed to establish themselves individually and in the group dynamic, the titular Jessica Day has always set the tone. This may not just be a Zooey Deschanel star vehicle anymore, but it retains that DNA. Thus, her extended absence is a risky proposition, both textually and metatextually. Life on the loft must find a different way to be harmonious while the construction of a “New Girl” episode must find a new rhythm to be successful.

“No Girl” wastes no tim...

The X-Files
Bringing back The X-Files proved to be huge for FOX on Sunday night, as more than 13 million viewers tuned in to watch former FBI agents Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) in the premiere of the new six-episode event series.

But is that number really an accurate representation of the show's success? And what does it mean for the network's recently announced plan of resurrecting other past series for new installments?

13 million is an impressive number, absolutely. That's on par with things like NBC's The Voice (which normally does about 12 million on its best d...
