TRACY MORGAN will be interviewed on Monday’s “Today” show.

We will NOT be seeing MARIAH CAREY in the final season of “American Idol.” She calls the show “boring” and “fake”, and says her one season judging was, “the worst experience of my life.” And she claims she’s NOT interested in making an appearance on the show’s final season.

LORI LOUGHLIN and BOB SAGET are officially on board for “Fuller House”.

TREVOR NOAH officially takes over “The Daily Show” on September 28th

NBC is holding an open casting call to find a Dorothy for their live production of “The Wiz”.

Fox is turning the 1980 JOHN TRAVOLTA movie “Urban Cowboy” into a series.

THE ROCK’S disaster movie “San Andreas” hits theaters this weekend. It’s up against a BRADLEY COOPER romantic comedy called “Aloha”. In other movie news, “Jaws” . . . the original summer blockbuster . . . is hitting theaters again this summer to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

American actors Clint Eastwood, Adam West, Burt Reynolds, and even Dick Van Dyke were all approached to succeed Sean Connery as James Bond, but it didn’t work out for one reason or another. Mel Gibson wanted the part in the ’80s, but he was deemed too short.

Footage from the filming of the DC supervillain movie “Suicide Squad” leaked yesterday, showing Batman on the hood of the Joker’s car. Unfortunately, it was stunt doubles, and not BEN AFFLECK or JARED LETO, who were filming the scene.

KRISTEN BELL accidentally took Uber POOL, which is Uber’s carpool option, and live Tweeted the awkward ride.

As expected, “Bachelor” CHRIS SOULES and WHITNEY BISCHOFF have split up. Their rep says, “They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another, and will continue to be supportive friends.” Of the 29 couples jammed together on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette”, only FOUR are still together.

A girl was driving her sister and a friend home from a TAYLOR SWIFT concert last Friday, when they crashed. The driver was unconscious and the other girls were trapped. Luckily they had light-up wristbands from the show that they used to flag down another car. Taylor heard about it and Tweeted, “This is unreal. I’m so happy they’re okay.”

A woman asked ED SHEERAN to be her nine-year-old daughter’s “first kiss.” But he refused. He says, “If a nine-year-old girl goes into school and goes ‘I got kissed by a 24-year-old yesterday,’ police are being called, you know?”

TLC and Hulu have stopped streaming episodes of “19 Kids and Counting” . . . and Republican presidential candidate RICK SANTORUM says he’s “sickened” by the scandal, and praying for the victims.

Just gonna leave this here: BEYONCÉ’S “Single Ladies” video syncs up perfectly with the “Duck Tales” theme song.
