FOX's American Idol executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe said the show's finalists will take on new challenges as the series launches a new season in January, cites TVGuide.com. The new tests involve the contestants making a music video, promoting themselves and working with a band and dancers for an awards show-style performance. Lythgoe also said the finalists would start with the top 12 contestants instead of an elimination round going from 24 to 12 finalists. Thankfully, I’ve already decided NOT to watch this show, since it will no longer have the same appeal without Simon.  It already sucked last season with Paula.  American Idol is no longer “American Idol” as we know it.

VH1 picked up a new 10-episode reality series titled Mob Wives from The Weinstein Co. and Ben Silverman's company Electus. VH1 gave the project a straight to series order and production will begin right after Thanksgiving. Mob Wives follows four women who struggle to resurrect their lives after being involved with husband or fathers who are doing prison time for mob-related crimes. Jennifer Graziano of JustJenn Productions created the series and will be the show's executive producer. JustJenn Productions has an exclusive deal with The Weinstein Co. to create scripted and reality programming. Mob Wives is expected to premiere in March 2011.
