REALITY INTRUDES AS NEWS INTERRUPTS ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAMMING
UNDATED (AP) -- Reality intrudes on reality television. Live broadcasts of both "Dancing With the Stars" and "The Voice" were interrupted last night by special reports on the decision of a Missouri grand jury not to indict a police officer in the shooting death of an unarmed, black 18-year-old. ABC carried live coverage of the announcement, prompting a flurry of social media posts. Some fans wanted the network to go back to Dancing With the Stars. Other fans supported the breaking news coverage, which lasted nearly 14 minutes. ABC News anchorman George Stephanopoulos (stehf-uh-NAHP'-uh-luhs) assured viewers they would get to see the full Dancing With Stars episode. NBC presented a much shorter special report after the grand jury's decision was announced.

`DANCING WITH THE STARS'-FINALE TONIGHT
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- If anyone has an edge going into tonight's "Dancing With the Stars" finale, it has to be Alfonso Ribeiro. He got two rounds of perfect scores from the judges on last night's show on each of his performances. Four finalists started last night's show, but only three make it to the finale. Sadie Robertson and Janel Parrish will join Ribeiro in the final night of competition for the mirrorball trophy. Video blogger Bethany Mota doesn't advance. She was eliminated last night. Mota says making it to the final four was the "best thing ever." She figured she would be voted off in the second week of the season.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Two more hopefuls will be sent packing on "The Voice" tonight. If the votes don't go Team Blake or Team Pharrell's way, they could be wiped out.

Team Shelton's Craig Wayne Boyd wowed the coaches and the audience with his version of "I Walk the Line." Adam Levine says it was amazing, while Shelton says it was magic.

MORE CANCELLATIONS FOR BILL COSBY
NEW YORK (AP) -- Two more venues say no thanks to Bill Cosby. The Capitol Theatre in Yakima, Washington, and Foxwoods Resorts Casino in Connecticut are the latest to indefinitely postpone scheduled appearances by the comic. Cosby was due to perform in Washington state on November 29 and in Connecticut on January 31. No specific reason was given for the postponements, but they come after a week in which numerous women claimed that Cosby sexually assaulted them at some point during his career. The embattled comedian has refused to comment on any of the allegations. At least 28 dates remain on his touring calendar through next May. Cosby did perform last week in Melbourne, Florida. He didn't mention the allegations in his stand-up routine and was applauded by the audience.
JUDITH IVEY WILL PLAY MARGARET THATCHER
NEW YORK (AP) -- Broadway has a new Iron Lady. Judith Ivey will play Margaret Thatcher in a play called "The Audience." Ivey already has two Tonys for her work in the 1983 play "Steaming" and the 1985 production of "Hurlyburly. She is perhaps best known for being part of the "Designing Women" cast in the 1990's. "The Audience" imagines Queen Elizabeth the Second's private weekly meetings with a succession of British Prime Ministers -- 12 in all. It was a smash hit in London. Helen Mirren will reprise her role as the queen. She won an Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth in the 2006 film "The Queen." "The Audience" opens February 17th in New York.
BARBRA STREISAND RECALLS HER DAYS AS A SMOKER
NEW YORK (AP) -- Barbra Streisand used to smoke. Then she turned 12 and quit. Streisand says she used to smoke on the rooftops in Brooklyn when she was 10. Her stepfather smoked and she liked the smell of the match when he struck it. Streisand says she thinks her voice has held up so well over the years because she's not a smoker and never cared much for drinking.
