McConaughey, Harrelson land new HBO show?

Hollywood besties Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson may have found a home for their new whodunit series.

According to Deadline, HBO (owned by the same parent company as CNN) has picked up the duo's cop drama “True Detective,” and is now in the process of finalizing the deal.

The series - which the two actors will star in, at least for the first season - sparked a bidding war earlier this month after it was trotted out before some of the top network brass.

Jennifer Lopez sets dates for summer tour

It’s about to be “muy caliente” this summer, and not just because of the weather.

Jennifer Lopez has announced she’s embarking on a summer tour - and she’s taking fellow Latin hottie Enrique Iglesias with her.

"It's daunting, a little bit," said Lopez, who'll also be joined by Latin artists Wisin Y Mandel on the road. She told the Hollywood Reporter, "I've always done a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but this is a big musical year for me."

Bobby Brown on Whitney: I'm not the reason she's gone

Plenty of chatter has persisted over the years about what impact, if any, Bobby Brown may have had on Whitney Houston's life and career, and now the late legend's ex is speaking out.

In an interview that's set to air on the "Today" show Wednesday, the R&B singer says that for one thing, he's not responsible for Houston's battle with drug use. According to Brown, Houston's use of substances began “way before” they met.

"I didn't get high [on narcotics] before I met Whitney," Brown told "Today's" Matt Lauer. "I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all... It's just unexplainable how one could, you know, [say that I] got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone."

'DWTS': Which star had the first perfect score?

The musical time machine continued to roll backward last night on "Dancing with the Stars," as we've gone from "Rock Night" to "Motown Night" to "Classical Night," as was the case on Monday. I eagerly await next week's tribute to the harpsichord.

Hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet promised Monday's show would be the biggest of the season, thanks to 18 additional musicians, five more vocalists and a partridge in a pear tree.

There were also seven couples performing their own routines, followed by a team competition pitting "Team Tango" against "Team Paso." No matter who wins the team showdown, I think we can all agree that both could take down the Charlotte Bobcats.

Watch: New trailer for 'Dark Knight Rises'

Our summer calendar is booked with must-see films, and we can think of no better way to start May than with a new trailer for one of them: "The Dark Knight Rises."

Warner Bros. released the third trailer for the last installment of Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" series on Monday night, one that fans are also anticipating will be screened ahead of "The Avengers" when it opens this weekend.

In contrast with the previous "Dark Knight Rises" trailer, there's no talk of "peace time" in this clip.
