HGTV has gone backward on plans to Flip It Forward.

The network announced via its Facebook page yesterday that it has pulled the plug on this upcoming series due to the homophobic views of hosts David and Jason Benham.

Flip it Forward had been scheduled to premiere in October and would have tracked families who created their dream homes from fixer-uppers.

HOWEVER, the twins are the sons of controversial evangelical minister Flip Benham and have a history of preaching against homosexuality, abortion, and divorce.

Let the debate over a fresh judging panel begin anew...

Fox announced this morning that American Idol has been renewed for Season 14, a move most expected the network to make despite the series suffering through its worst ratings in history this year.

The most recent  American Idol performance episode drew a mere 8.65 million viewers and garnered a 1.9 rating in the valued adults 18-49 demographic, while last week's results show disaster brought in a series-low 6.9 million viewers and 1.5 rating among this same age group.

Stop us if you've heard this before: There's turmoil on the set of Today.

This time, however, the wrath of many staffers is not aimed at Matt Lauer, but rather at the prospect of Katie Couric temporarily returning to co-anchor the morning show that made her famous.

As previously reported, the NBC program is considering re-hiring Couric this summer after Savannah Guthrie goes on maternity leave.

"Asking her to fill in for Savannah is really a disservice to [Natalie Morales and Tamron Hall],” an insider tells Radar, explaining why blasting to the show’s past could backfire:

"You already have two seasoned pros that are a part of the show, ready, willing and able to step up for Savannah."

Well, this is one way to promote a movie.

With The Neighbors coming out this Friday, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night.

At least we think it was Zac Efron and Seth Rogen.

The cross-dressers who appear in the following episode of "Ew!" with the talk show host sure do look like those male stars, don't they?

Rogen ripped Justin Bieber earlier in the week, while Efron opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about his stint in rehab.

Rest in peace, Father Kieran.

And, along with this late priest, rest in peace any semblance of a human faction in New Orleans as well.

Indeed, a major twist closed out The Originals Season 1 Episode 21, as we learned that Francesca Guerrera is actually a werewolf.

She struck a deal with Genevieve to have the witch create moonstone rings for her and her brothers so they could get their first kill, be instantly inundated with major power and then destroy all vampires in their wake in order to regain control of New Orleans. 

It was brutal stuff, with good ol' Diego even getting bitten and Marcel crying in agony as he returned to the compound and saw his brethren once again defeated.

The Tonight Show provided us with another hilarious viral moment on Monday.

A few days after Jimmy Fallon lost a lip-sync battle to Emma Stone and Cameron Diaz photobombed tourists on the roof of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, Bryan Cranston stopped by the program for a game of Word Sneak.

For the game, each star was challenged to use five words into a conversation - including “badonkadonk,” a term that the Breaking Bad actor butchered before turning to the audience and mouthing:

“I don’t know what that is!"

Watch the entire video now. It's totally adorable:

Looks like Cranston may be the one who knocks, but he's never the one who has knocked boots with someone who looks like Kim Kardashian.

What happened before Batman began?

That's the question that Fox will attempt to answer this fall, as the network has given the green light to Gotham, a unique drama the network teases as "an origin story of the great DC Comics super-villains and vigilantes."

It will star Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon; Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock; Jada Pinkett Smith as crime boss Fish Mooney; and David Mazouz as a young Bruce Wayne.

We'll also meet young versions of characters who will go on to become The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler.

Pretty cool concept, no? Check out the very first trailer for Gotham now:

There have been ups (Kim Kardashian gives birth!) and downs (Kris and Bruce Jenner separate), but the "best is yet to come" for the First Family of Reality Television.

So teases a new E! trailer for Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 9, which returns with fresh episodes on Sunday, June 8.

"This year has been the best and the worst year,” the trailer also states, showing us scenes of an exasperated Bruce, along with his three step-daughters at a photo shoot and some hijinx in the pool.

Katie Couric may be on her way back to the chair that made her famous.

Insiders tell The New York Post and TMZ that Today producers may bring Couric back on a temporary basis once Savannah Guthrie takes off on maternity leave. 

Guthrie announced in mid-March that she's married to Mike Feldman and is five months along with her first child.

Couric is friends with Guthrie and, of course, remains very close to Matt Lauer.

Did Leslie Jones cross a line this weekend on Saturday Night Live?

The cast member appeared on Weekend Update in response to Lupita Nyong'o being named People Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman in the World, giving praise to the actress and then going on to explain how she deserves the title of Most Useful Woman.

Especially if this were the slave era.

Referencing pre Civil War-America, Jones quipped:

"I would have never been single. I’m six feet tall and I’m strong. Strong! I mean, look at me, I’m a mandingo... I’m just saying that back in the slave days, my love life would have been way better. [Master] would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation... I would be the No. 1 slave draft pick."
