Demi Lovato Stays ‘Focused’ On Her ‘X Factor’ Team – While she is making sure that she gives them as much advice as she can, she said she doesn’t get to spend as much time with her contestants as one might think, given her busy schedule. “I don’t really have a lot of time to sit and chitchat with them. So any second that I get with them, I’m like, ‘This is what you need to do. Practice your pitch. Do this. Bye, have a good show.’ It’s so rapid, but I do have a little time during interviews and stuff when we do get a little closer and open up. So it’s nice. I do get to spend a little time with them.” – Read more at MTV

‘Dancing With the Stars’: Why is this the lowest-rated season? – ABC’s Dancing With the Stars tied its all-time ratings low Monday night for a performance episode, down 9 percent from last week. The show delivered 13.4 million viewers and a 2.1 in the adult demo. Gee, that still sounds like a lot of people watching, you think. And you’re right. In fact, Dancing was Monday’s most-watched show. But that’s still a much smaller audience than the veteran series used to deliver and that modest adult demo rating is the real concern. Overall, this is the show’s lowest-rated season. Maybe it’s the All-Stars format. Maybe fans wanted new faces. But Dancing has been on a steady downward trend in recent years (surely one of the reasons the All-Stars format was attempted in the first place). And as we’ve seen with American Idol and Biggest Loser and other shows, once a reality hit is on the far side of its ratings bell curve, it’s tough to reverse the trend. – Read more at Entertainment Weekly
