NEW YORK (AP) - "America's Most Wanted' may have come to an end after 25 years. Lifetime network has confirmed it won't be picking up the crime-fighting series for another season. But the network says it's developing a pilot for a new project with John Walsh, who created "America's Most Wanted" in 1988. Hosted by Walsh, the series was a fixture on the Fox network until its abrupt cancellation in June 2011. During that run, the show helped bring almost 1,200 fugitives to justice. Lifetime revived the series in December 2011, ultimately airing 44 episodes. It most recently aired on the network last October. Walsh originally launched his crime-busting crusade in 1981, in the aftermath of the abduction and murder of his 6-year-old son, Adam.

American Idol parts ways with Devin

LOS ANGLES (AP) - The girls really have the power on "American Idol," because it was the three remaining guys who were in the bottom three of voting. Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos and Devin Velez got the fewest votes, with Velez at the bottom. Even though the crowd was chanting for the judges to use their power to save him from elimination and Mariah Carey was egging them on, Velez was still sent home. And if you want proof that shoes can make or break you on "Idol," look no further than Kree Harrison. She was jumping up and down in platform stillettos when Janelle Arthur was declared safe -- and Harrison fell smack on the floor.

Lorrie Morgan defends Taylor Swift

WASHINGTON (AP) - Lorrie Morgan pours out her heart into her music, but she probably doesn't do it the way Taylor Swift does. Morgan says people shouldn't dog on Swift for that. She says Swift is young and making lots of money and having fun and dating -- and writing about it. Morgan says she doesn't write about her exes, but she could. Morgan also says if the people she does write about don't know it, they're "dumb." Morgan is collaborating with Pam Tillis on an album coming out this summer.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Shakira and Usher held their own as new coaches on "The Voice," although Usher needs a geography lesson. He referred to Nashville as a state. Blake Shelton would not let him live that down. Usher is on his way to building his team, though, with two singers. Team Blake picked up a guy who sang "Sexy and I Know It" on acoustic guitar, blonde identical twins and a 16-year-old whose first big performance was her audition for "The Voice." Team Shakira won over a musician who works as a roofer and a guy who surprised the judges because they thought only a woman could hit notes that high. Adam Levine has only one singer for his team, but she's got experience. She was supposed to be Michael Jackson's duet partner for his final shows and sang at his memorial service.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - While speculation heats up that Jimmy Fallon will replace Jay Leno as host of the"Tonight Show," Fallon is joking about it while Leno continues to ridicule his bosses in their monologues. Leno compared NBC executives to the snakes St. Patrick drove out of Ireland. This came after he was reportedly told to lay off the brass by an NBC executive. Fallon addressed the rumor at the top of his monologue. He said he wanted to talk about reports that he would be moving to 11:30, or as he said his parents called it "Eh, it's still too late." Then he said, "Actually, the rumors are true. NBC is turning the 'Tonight Show' into a diving competition," a reference to ABC's new reality show "Splash." The New York Times quotes a network executive as saying though the there's no deal yet, "there is no way on earth that this is not going to happen."
