'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Will this stay in rehab be Lindsay's last?

Hey guys, it’s A.J! Here's the big news for today: Lindsay Lohan may be about to do something in rehab she hasn’t been able to do in years – sit down with both of her parents in the same room and talk!

She’s already spending time with her dad, which is a huge step to heal their painful relationship. I think this is seriously overdue and could really make Lindsay’s fifth rehab stay her last! What do you think? Post your thoughts below.

This piece of news is so disturbing to me: There are explosive new developments in the “Teen Mom” drama. Is Amber Portwood – the teen mom accused of beating her baby’s father on the MTV show - losing custody of her daughter?!

Two 'Potter' stars doubt they'd return if franchise continues

As the first of the final two "Harry Potter" films gets ready to hit theaters, stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson both say it would take a bit of wizardry for them to reprise their roles ever again.

Though author J.K. Rowling recently told Oprah Winfrey that she hasn't ruled out adding a few new titles to the blockbuster "Harry Potter" book series, Radcliffe is ready to leave the boy wizard behind.

"Oh God, she promised me categorically that there wouldn't be another book involving Harry," 21-year-old Radcliffe, who has played Harry Potter since age 11, said in a Sky News interview. The actor added he is "doubtful" that he would participate in any future Potter films. "I think 10 years is a long time to spend with one character," he said.

'Simpsons' set to surpass 500 episodes

When "The Simpsons" began in 1990, the internet was not available to the public ("Simpsons" fans have had an online presence since at least 1994), very few people had mobile phones and recent guest star Daniel Radcliffe was still in diapers.

Fox announced the renewal of the iconic series for a 23rd season on Thursday, and executive producer Al Jean said in a press release, "Like many 22-year-olds, THE SIMPSONS is extremely happy remaining at home, on Fox, and hopes it doesn't have to go out into the real world for many years to come."

The longest-running comedy series in history will hit 515 episodes by the time this next season is over.

Wheaton rules once again on 'Big Bang Theory'

Wil Wheaton, why must you wait so long in between guest starring appearances on “Big Bang Theory”?

I just love what Wheaton, who we hope is playing a more evil version of himself, does to Sheldon. As much as I love watching our favorite geek spar with Leonard and his pals, no one - but no one - brings the crazy out in Sheldon like Wheaton.

Thursday night’s episode centered on a cinema showing of “The Raider of the Lost Ark,” complete with 21 seconds of never before seen footage. You may smirk, but I would totally stand in line to see that.

Kanye West cancels 'Today' performance

After firing off critical tweets of the “Today” show earlier this week, Kanye West announced Friday via Twitter that he won’t be performing on the NBC program on November 26, as was previously planned. (Update, 1:13 p.m.: A representative for "Today" confirmed to CNN that West has canceled his concert.)

“I’m not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons,” West tweeted, then going on to say how happy he was that “the world got to see just a small piece of ‘the set up.’”

What West refers to as “the set up” are the elements of his pre-taped interview with Matt Lauer that caused him to launch into a Twitter rant this week. “Today” aired the video on Thursday.

AMC's 'Rubicon' ends after one season

The political thriller "Rubicon" apparently held little intrigue for AMC viewers. The network announced that it has canceled the series after just one season.

This marks the first AMC original series to get the axe. Both "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad" have earned respectable ratings and critical raves while the limited series "The Prisoner" completed its single run, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, the new zombie series "The Walking Dead" – which premiered October 31 – has been a huge hit and is already set to return for a second season.
