Chris Brown was sentenced to a year in Los Angeles County Jail after admitting to violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna. He will get credit for 234 days of time served in jail and court-ordered rehab, however, so he only has 131 more days to go. The judge also reinstated and extended Brown's probation, which is now due to be up next January. It's very possible that Brown will not even spend the 131 days behind bars, either. Ultimately the L.A. County Sheriff's Department will determine how much more time he actually serves, based on behavior credits, chronic jail overcrowding and other factors. The judge also noted that Brown has an underlying mental health condition, and that this was a mitigating factor in his sentencing. Previous court records have stated Brown is bipolar.
George Clooney and his fiance Amal Alamuddin had a big engagement party over the weekend. But we found out that he was able to get her to go out with him by joking that they should hook up because they're both so hot. A source says he sent her an email saying, "I think the reported hottest man in the world should meet with the hottest human rights lawyer in the world." I just can't believe that worked!
CBS canceled the Robin Williams sitcom, "The Crazy Ones", after one season. They also dumped "Bad Teacher", "Intelligence", "Friends with Better Lives" and "Hostages". Somewhat surprisingly, they're bringing back "The Mentalist" for another season. CBS is also expected to add a new "NCIS" spin-off that's set in New Orleans plus an "Odd Couple" reboot starring Mathew Perry and Thomas Lennon, but no official announcements have been made. TBS has renewed "Cougar Town" for a sixth and final season. ABC has canceled "Suburgatory", Rebel Wilson's "Super Fun Night" and "The Neighbors" but is bringing back "Nashville" and "Last Man Standing". NBC has canceled "Community" and "Revolution", along with eight other shows. "Believe", "Crisis", "Dracula", "Growing Up Fisher", "Ironside", "The Michael J. Fox Show", "Revolution", "Sean Saves the World" and "Welcome to the Family". They're bringing back "Parenthood" and "Parks and Recreation", but both of them are only getting one more season. NBC has also announced that "The Blacklist" will get the coveted post-Super Bowl timeslot next year.
Eminem released a video yesterday for "Headlights". It was fitting that he dropped it on Mother's Day, because both the song and the video are an apology for the way he attacked his mother Debbie Mathers over the years, on songs like "Cleaning Out My Closet".
