'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Has 'Glee' lost its mojo?

There are shocking claims today that Fox’s hit show, “Glee,” has lost the spark that makes it so special! Accusations that the plots - even the songs - are lame.

I actually love how things are evolving this season. But what do you think? Post your thoughts below.

Another big "Showbiz Tonight" debate today: Who should replace Gilbert Gottfried after his firing as the voice of the Aflac duck? I think it should be someone with a very distinct personality who can put their stamp on the iconic “spokes-duck”!

We also have a "Showbiz" Newsmaker interview with Christina Aguilera. She’s speaking out to us for the very first time since her drunken arrest.

And Donald Trump gets roasted! His Comedy Central roast was brutal. So I’ve got to ask – why the heck would he put himself through that?

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

Never fear: 'Tosh.0' isn't canceled

Earlier this week, just prior to the most recent episode of Comedy Central's hit series "Tosh.0," host Daniel Tosh tweeted the following: "yes the rumors are true. this weeks show will be the last one for awhile. need to figure out what i really want out of life."

But that statement, reminiscent of Dave Chappelle a few years ago, didn't cause quite the uproar among his legions of fans as this one did last night, after he did his weekly live-tweet of the show: "sadly gary mann at comedy central is forcing the show to take a long vacation. still hoping to make 20 more eps this year."

Fans on Twitter were worried: "you can't stop! Where will I get my Internet videos?!" asked Clumseh.

Remembering hip-hop legend Nate Dogg

Fans and celebrities alike are pausing with reflection as word spreads that hip-hop artist and vocalist Nate Dogg passed away on Tuesday. His longtime manager, Rod McGrew, confirmed to CNN that Nate Dogg, born Nathaniel Hale, died at the age of  41.

Hale – who was the legendary master of the rap hook –  famously appeared on Dr. Dre’s seminal album “The Chronic,” and provided vocals for a number of rappers, in addition to releasing his own solo work with albums such as “G-Funk Classics Vol. 1 & 2" and “Music & Me."

He collaborated on a number of hits, including the track that will never age, “Regulate” with Warren G, as well as Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode," Snoop Dogg's "Lay Low" and 50 Cent’s “21 Questions.”

'Facts of Life' cast will reunite at TV Land awards

Fact: TV Land is doubling the nostalgic fun at the network’s upcoming awards ceremony by not only featuring a reunion of the “Welcome Back, Kotter” cast, but also bringing the “Facts of Life” members together again.

Lisa Whelchel (Blair), Kim Fields (Tootie), Mindy Cohn (Natalie), Nancy McKeon (Jo) and of course Mrs. Garrett, as played by Charlotte Rae, will reunite for the first time in 20 years at the 2011 TV Land awards, Entertainment Weekly reports. "The Facts of Life" stars will be on hand to accept the Pop Culture Award.

If you're wondering where George Clooney will be, EW notes that his name wasn't included in the round-up. But perhaps he'll be added in before the show airs on April 17, like they've added to the list of those joining the "Kotter" reunion.

'Glee,' you are such an original

YAY for Kurt!

He finally won Blaine's heart and the pair sealed it with a kiss or two. But more on that later.

It was a super huge episode with so much angst. The glee club members struggled to write an original song for Regionals and ended up with some interesting results. Santana's ode to Sam's lips, "Trouty Mouth," was just too much. Puck (barely) did a little bit better serenading Lauren with "Big Ass Heart."

Eva Longoria: When I talk about my divorce, I want to cry

Eva Longoria says in a new interview with Allure that she’s learned to be “a little more cautious” about what she reveals these days, but one thing she is being open about is life after divorce.

In the wake of her split from basketball star Tony Parker, the 36-year-old actress admits that the adjustment hasn’t been easy.

“I’m kind of having to find new patterns because I’m not used to having—I’m used to always being on a plane and flying to a basketball game,” Longoria says of her daily routine, eyes tearing up. “It’s been—every time I talk about it, I want to cry. It’s been hard. Very hard. I’m just trying to get through it as gracefully as possible without any drama.”
