"Dancing With The Stars"
It was a perfect night for Meryl Davis on "Dancing With the Stars." The Olympic gold medal skater also gets gold from the D-W-T-S judges, 10s across the board for a perfect score on her tango. The judges also say her pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy never looked better. Carrie Ann Inaba says it was his best choreography ever. She adds Meryl is so good, she looks like one of the pros. It wasn't such a good night for Drew Carey, though. The judges liked his pimped out tango. But the judges scores and the viewer votes combined aren't enough to keep him in the competition. Carey was voted off last night. He says he got to live out a fantasy and is surprised he made it halfway through the season.
There's no question "The Voice" was live last night. Kristen Merlin's mic went out while she was performing but she handled it like a pro. All four coaches gave her a standing ovation. Adam Levine says if it happened to him he would have been a "puddle" of nerves. It wasn't the only puddle on the coaches' minds. Usher says if he tried holding a note as long Audra McLaughlin, he would have to pee. The top 12 performed on last night's show. Tonight, two will be sent home.
Rosie O'donnell Drops 50 Pounds
You'll notice something different about Rosie O'Donnell when she returns to "The View" along with all the other co-hosts next month. O'Donnell says she's lost 50 pounds since having surgery. She posted before-and-after selfies on Twitter. O'Donnell and 10 other hosts of the show will reunite on "The View" to say goodbye to Barbara Walters on May 15. Walters retires as host the next day.
The Time Isn't Right For A Black Widow Movie
The director of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" says he thinks Black Widow deserves her own movie. Kevin Feige says he already has "various outlines and ideas of where to take that." However, he says the time isn't right yet. He says Black Widow is too important to future movies to spare her for a solo shot.
"A Haunted House" - Jaime Pressly
Jaime Pressly couldn't keep up with Marlon Wayans while filming "A Haunted House." She says Wayans was doing a juicing cleanse that gave him "energy that no one should have." She says even her nearly seven-year-old son doesn't have that much energy and "that is unheard of."
"The Americans" Renewed
More disguises are in store for Keri Russell. Her show "The Americans" has been renewed by FX. Season 3 will consist of 13 episodes that'll start next year. This season's finale airs May 21. An average of about three million people are watching the show each week.
