DAVID CASSIDY: 1950-2017
Teen Idol Played "Hollywood Squares"
From
TV Line

Actor and singer David Cassidy, who rose to fame as Keith Partridge in the classic ’70s series The Partridge Family, has died of organ failure. He was 67 years old.

He passed away on Tuesday surrounded by his family, his publicist JoAnn Geffen confirmed to Variety: “On behalf of the entire Cassidy family, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy. David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long. Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years.”

According to TMZ, Cassidy was first admitted to a hospital in Florida on Nov. 15. Earlier this year, he revealed he was battling dementia, and announced he would stop touring to concentrate on his health.

Cassidy starred alongside real-life stepmother Shirley Jones on The Partridge Family, which ran for a total of 96 episodes between 1970 and 1974 on ABC. The TV-family band put out 10 platinum-selling albums during the series’ run. Among their biggest hits was “I Think I Love You,” which climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November 1970.

Cassidy also found success as a solo artist — though he struggled to shed his teen idol image. His hits included “Cherish” and “I Write the Songs,” the latter of which was eventually rerecorded and popularized by Barry Manilow. Cassidy continued to chart well into the 1990s with tracks including “Lyin’ to Myself” and “No Bridge I Wouldn’t Cross.”

In 1978, Cassidy received an Emmy nomination for his guest-starring role in Police Story, playing Officer Dan Shay. That led to his own cop show vehicle, the short-lived David Cassidy: Man Undercover, which was cancelled in 1979. Additional guest credits included The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Flash (1991), The John Larroquette Show, Malcolm in the Middle and Less Than Perfect.

In 2009, Cassidy was a series regular on the short-lived ABC Family sitcom Ruby & the Rockits, co-created by his half-brother Shaun Cassidy. His most recent acting credit is a 2013 episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Cassidy leaves behind two children: Arrow star Katie Cassidy (pictured right), and a son, Beau.

His game show appearances include episodes of "Hollywood Squares" in 2003 and "The Celebrity Apprentice" in 2011.

The six-episode event premieres Thursday, Jan. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

"This show is going to disrupt the world of competition television and will revolutionize the format," said Combs. "It took the right show and network to bring me back in the game.

Do you want to be great?

"I'm proud to announce that I will be participating in one of the most important, if not the most important events on television and pop culture," said DJ Khaled. "It's a one-of-a-kind experience that will showcase the best of the new generation of musical geniuses. When you come from where I come from, you know just how hard it is to turn your dreams into a reality. It's a long road to the journey of success. I've spent my career discovering amazing talent and working with the biggest icons from every corner of the globe and now I'm bringing my one-of-a-kind approach to FOX. I immediately jumped at the opportunity when I realized FOX shared the same vision as me, and that's to be the best!!! If you think you have what it takes to become the next icon, trust me, DJ Khaled is the one that will let you know. So be prepared for a new era of television. All I know is how to win...more!!!

"When FOX asked me to be a part of this new series, without hesitation, my answer was... YES!," said Trainor. "I know firsthand what it's like to be thrown into the music industry head first, as an artist and a songwriter. I also know what it takes to hang on for the ride. I'm so humbled to help discover new talent with this amazing panel of experts."

"What lies at the heart of the music business is 'talent,'" said Walk. "Discovering and developing talent remains the most important, consistent driver of my home, Republic Records, and now FOX's THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM. I'm thrilled to be joining this incredible panel of my longtime friends, Sean, Khaled and Meghan, to help make the difference on a platform that's truly committed to identifying and breaking the next generation of superstars.

"They understand what an artist needs to break through - from killer music and style to innovative marketing and social media. This is a show like no other and we can't wait to get started."

THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM begins where the other shows end: With the best. These four top-notch artists, spanning all music genres, will fight each week to defend their coveted seats on the show, as determined newcomers challenge them and try to knock them out of the competition.

From MENAFM

BYUtv today announced plans to co-produce a new game show titled Just Like Mom and Dad. Produced in association with marblemedia and YES TV in Canada and BYUtv in the U.S., the 20-episode primetime family game show celebrates modern, diverse families and proves how much fun families can have together and will premiere across the U.S.on January 8, 2018 at 8pm ET/6pm MT.

Just Like Mom and Dad will be hosted by husband and wife duo and family entertainment veterans, Sandy Jobin-Bevans and Kylee Evans. Sandy, a nine-time Canadian Comedy Award winner and Kylee, an actress, appeared on YTV/Nickelodeon's hit sitcom Life With Boys, where Sandy played the loving, single father and Kylee played their neighbor. Sandy was also the co-host of the hidden camera game show, Deal With It and Kylee is known for her recurring roles in Good Witch and The Stanley Dynamic.

"BYUtv is pleased to present our first game show, Just Like Mom and Dad, with our partner, marblemedia, and to expand our portfolio of innovative reality TV-based programming," said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. "Both BYUtv and marblemedia are committed to providing quality, family entertainment content for viewers throughout North America and around the world and we look for to co-producing and distributing this content across our network. Few shows today capture parents spending time with their young kids in a reality-TV setting and we are excited to explore the possibilities of this genre and scenario."

Shot in Toronto before a live, energetic studio audience on a bright set filled with giant moving video screens and a bigger prize wheel, each episode will feature three parent/kid pairs. The game starts with two interactive question-answer based rounds where parents and kids will be quizzed about their knowledge of each other. The third and final round will be an exciting bake-off in a new, state of the art kitchen coliseum, but in this kitchen the kids are in charge and the parents are the taste-testers. Additionally, marblemedia will be releasing digital media components, produced in-house by marblemedia Interactive, to support the Just Like Mom and Dad series, including a mobile App.

MEL TILLIS: 1932-2017
Country Legend Played "Hollywood Squares"
From
CNN

Country music legend Mel Tillis died early Sunday morning, according to a statement from his publicist. He was 85.

Tillis died at the Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Florida, after battling intestinal issues since 2016, said spokesman Don Murry Grubbs. The suspected cause of death was respiratory failure.

Tillis was a prolific singer-songwriter who penned more than 1,000 songs and recorded more than 60 albums in a career that spanned six decades. Many of those songs were recorded by other country music stars such as Kenny Rogers, George Strait and Ricky Skaggs.

His commercial peak came in the 1970s when he had a string of top 10 hits, including "Good Woman Blues," "Heart Healer" and "Coca Cola Cowboy." In 2007, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Before making his way to Nashville, Tennessee, the songwriter briefly attended the University of Florida. He joined the US Air Force to serve in the Korean War and was stationed in Okinawa, where he spent his time cooking and singing on Armed Forces Radio.

His game show appearances include episodes of "Hollywood Squares" from the 1970s and 1980s.

TV Line

Della Reese, who played Touched By an Angel‘s Tess for the CBS drama’s entire run, died Sunday at home in California, our sister site Variety reports. She was 86.

Reese was a gospel and R&B singer who hosted an eponymous daytime talk show from 1969-1970. She later moved to television, with a long career that included roles on Chico and the Man, MacGyver, The Royal Family, Designing Women, Picket Fences, That’s So Raven and The Young and the Restless.

Her most notable small screen gig was likely Touched by an Angel, the family series starring Roma Downey as Monica, an angel sent to Earth to deliver God’s love to those in need. Reese played Tess, Monica’s maternal supervisor.

Reese continued to work after Touched by an Angel wrapped in 2003; her most recent TV credit was Hallmark’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered.

“Through her life and work she touched and inspired the lives of millions of people,” Downey shared the news with fans via social media Monday. “She was like a mother to me.”

Her game show appearances include episodes of "The $20,000 Pyramid", "Match Game", "Break the Bank", and "The Hollywood Squares".
