Box Office Results

LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Iron-Man" is getting a run for its box office money by a movie set in the Roaring '20s. As expected, the Marvel superhero holds on to the number one spot. But showing up with a strong second-place finish is "The Great Gatsby." Iron-Man took in $72.5 million, with Gatsby pulling in $51.1 million for the number-two slot. That was much higher than expectations by Warner Brothers of a $35 to $40 million opening weekend. "Pain and Gain" was number three, followed by Tyler Perry's "Peeples" and holding on to number five is "42," the Jackie Robinson biopic.

NEW YORK (AP) - Big news for Seth Meyers - and no, it's not the fake kind he's used to delivering from the "Weekend Update" desk. He's getting his own show, moving from "Saturday Night Live" to the late night spot on NBC that used to be held by the likes of David Letterman, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon. NBC says Meyers will step into Jimmy Fallon's slot when Fallon moves up an hour to replace Jay Leno on the "Tonight" Show. Meyers is 39 - and has been the head writer at "Saturday Night Live" for eight seasons, all but one as "Weekend Update" host.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Fox network is betting big on its first miniseries and shows from heavyweight producers Seth MacFarlane and J.J. Abrams for next season. The network said Monday it's making its largest original-programming investment yet with a crop of 11 new series and a miniseries from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan for the 2013-14 season. That's more than double the five series it announced last year. "Family Guy" and "American Dad" creator MacFarlane will be trying his hand at a live-action sitcom. "Dads" will star Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as best friends whose fathers become their new roommates. Abrams is among the producers of "Almost Human," an action series set 35 years in the future, when officers are teamed with humanlike androids.

George Jones' final concert will go on

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - It was supposed to be his last concert - and George Jones had it set up so that a lot of stars were going to join him November 22 in Nashville for his final performance. Jones died last month - but the show will go on. His widow Nancy says several of the acts who were to perform have confirmed they will still attend - and several who weren't in the original lineup have signed on. Among the originals who will be on hand include Garth Brooks and Kid Rock. The show is set for the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

"American Idol" finalists

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Not as many people are watching "American Idol" these days as in years past. But as the Fox program gets down to its final three contestants for the season, the remaining singers have stories that are almost as compelling as the ongoing bickering between judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. One of the finalists, Candice Glover has been rejected twice by the show before making her run this year. Kree Harrison nearly gave up on her goal of becoming a singer after scoring some recording deals in Nashville - only to be told she had to change her style to suit the suits at the labels. The obstacles Angie Miller has had to overcome were physical in nature. As a child she suffered ruptured ear drums and impaired hearing - so much so that she may need ear surgery once she's done with Idol.

NEW YORK (AP) - Carrie Underwood will be the one getting people pumped for "Sunday Night Football." NBC says Underwood will sing a new version of "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night." Faith Hill had done it for seven seasons but had told NBC in February she would not be back. Producer Fred Gaudelli says Underwood is the only singer he pursued as a replacement. Underwood says she watched Hill sing the song every week and she thought it would be something fun to do. The lyrics will be the same, but Underwood will do it in her style. The first Sunday night game is Giants versus Cowboys on September 8.

"Dancing with the Stars" vote off

LOS ANGELES (AP) - At least "The Bachelor" will know how to dance at his wedding. Sean Lowe was voted off "Dancing With the Stars" last night. It's no big surprise, as Lowe had the lowest scores from the judges this week. Lowe had made some progress and last week climbed out of the bottom two. But this week, one of the judges told him his dancing was more tragic than magic. While Lowe won't win, he has no regrets. Lowe says being on Dancing With the Stars was a great experience for a regular guy from Dallas.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The man who was the voice of Charlie Brown in several "Peanuts" television shows faces possible prison time for stalking and threatening his former girlfriend and a plastic surgeon who had given her a breast enhancement. Peter Robbins is scheduled to appear in San Diego Superior Court on Wednesday for sentencing. He pleaded guilty last month. Prosecutors say the 56-year-old called his former girlfriend up to 37 times in a 24-hour period, saying he would kill her and her son if she did not give back his dog and car. They say Robbins repeatedly called the plastic surgeon to demand a refund for the breast enhancement. The Oceanside resident is best known for his portrayal of Charlie Brown on the TV special "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

"Dancing with the Stars" Performances

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zendaya had a perfect night on "Dancing With the Stars." The Disney kid gets the first round of perfect 10s of the season. It came on her second performance, a salsa with two pros. Sean Lowe could be dancing again, but it might be at his wedding. "The Bachelor" gets the lowest scores of the evening. He could be in danger of going home tonight, after climbing out of the bottom two last week.
