Are you ready for an 'American Idol' revival? (poll)
Take our poll and tell us how excited you are for the "American Idol" revival. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- "American Idol" might be coming back. The starmaking sensation aired its final episode on Fox in April, but Variety reported Thursday that NBC is in talks to revive the singing competition. While the show produced unquestionable superstars like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, recent winners have attained a decidedly lower profile. Don't believe me? Just try and name the past three "Idol" winners without Googling it. But the show's legacy endures, as it was one of the most-watched television programs in history. It also inspired several copycat programs. In 2012, the finalists famously acquired more votes than that year's presidential candidates -- although in fairness, "Idol" allows children to participate and viewers can vote more than once. So how excited are you to see a new season of "Idol?" Let us know by taking our poll below.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Two results show recap: Rick Perry gets a reprieve; Jake T. Austin eliminated
To the shock of many, even some of the judges, Rick Perry escaped elimination after spending the first two weeks of the season at the bottom of the leaderboard. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- With two hours to fill, the first elimination show of the 23rd season of "Dancing With the Stars" was a very thorough look back at everything that's gone into the first two weeks of the show. The night included previously unseen dress rehearsal and pre-performance footage from the first two weeks of competition; one-on-one interviews with this season's contestants; a lively, colorful performance by the entire professional troupe; and an exclusive segment showcasing the return of three of the show's Mirror Ball Trophy winners - Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough and Maks Chmerkovskiy. There were also live musical performances by Charlie Puth, Daya and Gavin DeGraw. In addition, there was a sneak peek at the new "Forever Country" video which features 30 of country music's biggest performers including Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Ronnie Milsap, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton. The big shock of the night was that Rick Perry managed to dodge elimination, and instead, another of this season's low-scoring dancers - Jake T. Austin, was sent home. Although Jake T. Austin and his pro dancer partner, newcomer Jenna Johnson, were never at the very bottom of the leaderboard, it all boiled down to the power of the vote. Austin mentioned during Monday night's competition that he hoped he wouldn't be eliminated the same week he performed to the theme song from his show "Go, Diego, Go!" NEXT WEEK: THE FACE-OFF COMPETITION.
