A mole told The Wrap that former panelist Christina - who left the show in 2012 after three seasons to promote her latest album LOTUS - is expected to return this autumn after signing a deal worth a rumored $17 million.
It is as yet unclear whether Cee Lo Green, who also departed last year, will be returning alongside Christina or whether his popular replacement, Usher, will stay on.
The current line-up of NBC's singing competition, which also features Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, has proved a hit with audiences and ratings are at an all-time high. Producer Matt Burnett confirmed Shakira's departure and explained change was a natural progress when working with successful recording artists: "Everybody can't coach for life because when you have people with current recording in the game, this is not their job. Their job is their fans and making music and being live, and so we knew from the beginning that this would happen, and we've had six coaches. They all have another life and their schedules."
Barbara Walters will be retiring. The chat show veteran has decided to end her phenomenal TV career in 2014.
"I am very happy with my decision and look forward to a wonderful and special year ahead both on The View and with ABC News. I created The View and am delighted it will last beyond my leaving it. I do not want to appear on another program or climb another mountain. I want instead to sit on a sunny field and admire the very gifted women - and, OK, some men, too - who will be taking my place," she said in a statement.
The 83-year-old star - who will continue to serve as executive producer of The View - began her career in 1961 and has spent five decades at the forefront of television. She co-hosted NBC's morning news program, The Today Show, for 15 years before moving over to ABC to co-host the Evening News. Ben Sherwood, ABC News President, said, "There is only one Barbara Walters. We look forward to making her final year on television as remarkable, path-breaking and news-making as Barbara herself. We look forward to a year befitting her brilliant career filled with exclusive interviews, great adventures and indelible memories."
American Idol is returning to a three judge format. The singing competition's 13th season will have a diminished panel for the first time in five years in a bid to combat the Fox show's declining ratings.
Kevin Reilly, Fox's entertainment chairman, also revealed current judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj had been invited back, despite veteran mentor Randy Jackson deciding to leave the panel. "The format will have fresh twists for next season," the TV boss said. Kevin went on to hint the expanded middle rounds were likely to be revamped since he believes they are responsible for dwindling viewing figures.
Bryce Dallas Howard is obsessed with the Kardashians.
The 32-year-old actress - who has kids Theo, six and Beatrice, 16 months with husband Seth Gabel - starting watching their reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians while on bed rest during her second pregnancy in 2011 and quickly became addicted.
"[My guilty pleasure] is Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I had never watched it, and then when I was super-pregnant I was overdue and I actually had a pretty bad injury and I got put on bed rest and I couldn't move. And I asked my friends, 'What should I do?' Because I just wanted to be productive. They're like, 'Listen, you got a 5-year-old running around, on bed rest, you just need to do what you want to do most. What is that? Do you want to read magazines? Like what do you want to do?' And I was like, 'I just want to watch the Kardashians, I never watched it before! I just really want to see what this is all about.' And I have since watched every single episode. I love it ... I love it."
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been picked up for a full season.
After viewing the pilot of Joss Whedon's Avengers spin-off, featuring Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson - who was believed to have died in the big screen movie - bosses at ABC chose to make a full series of the show. Ming-Na Wen and Elizabeth Henstridge will join Clark in the series, which tells the story of the peace-keeping company S.H.I.E.L.D [Stragetic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate] headed by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Marvel's films.
An official description of S.H.I.E.L.D reads, "Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel's feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson's team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet) (sic)."
Demi Lovato wants Britney Spears to return to The X Factor. The "Toxic" singer quit as a judge after just one season on the show and Demi is devastated she won't be working with Britney again, although she has come up with a suitable replacement.
"I wish Britney would come back. My next pick is Lady Gaga though, she's so cool," she said.
Demi and Simon Cowell are the only remaining members of the panel after L.A. Reid also quit at the end of last season, and the TV mogul says top of his list for the new panel is chemistry between the judges. "Simon delivered a simple message: Forget the big names and go for chemistry. He said all these shows have become distracted by signing celebrities rather than judges who really have something to say. We have all seen that big names don't translate into big ratings. Chemistry is top of the list of demands for next season. [Only Demi will return because her chemistry with Simon was] the best thing about the panel last year," a source said.
Both Jennifer Love-Hewitt and Kelly Rowland have been rumored as possible replacements to join the panel in 2014.
The Office changed John Krasinski's life. The 33-year-old actor was a waiter before he landed the role of Jim Halpert on the NBC show and John - who is married to Emily Blunt - will always be grateful for what it did for him.
"To say this show gave me everything is the biggest understatement. I was a waiter before The Office so to me, this was a winning lottery ticket. Everything about my life has changed," he told Us Weekly.
John admits he is "emotional" about the end of the show, and while he doesn't want to say goodbye, is happy he and his cast mates have the opportunity to bring their storylines to a satisfactory conclusion: "I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close."
