  • TV legend Carol Burnett signed to ABC sitcom project

    NEW YORK (AP) — Carol Burnett fans: You'd be glad to have some more time together with this comedy legend, and she's likely headed back to series TV in a project Amy Poehler will executive produce.Poehler publicist Lewis Kay and ABC have confirmed the project, a so-called "put pilot" deal for a multicamera sitcom.Burnett, 83, has had a six-decade run on stage, in films and especially on television, where her "Carol Burnett" variety show aired for 11 seasons on CBS, wrapping in 1979. Although she's stayed busy on TV as both an actress and comedian, her most recent series, NBC's sketch-comedy "Carol & Company," aired a quarter-century ago.Burnett has won a total of six Emmys.

  • Bruno Mars is pop's ultimate party boy with hit '24K Magic'

    While the world was busy dancing to Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" at the top of 2015, the singer was partying in the studio and creating his latest groovy hit.The Grammy-winning star said in an interview with The Associated Press he wrote "24K Magic" around the time "Uptown Funk" topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart last year. "24K Magic" debuted at No. 5 on the Hot 100 chart this week.The new party anthem was launched with a music video to match its celebratory flavor. So far, it's racked up more than 46 million views on YouTube."You want to kick the door down instead of politely say, 'Hey guys, check this out.' So I think that was the whole objective — to make sure the visual came with the song so people can know, 'When we wrote this, this is what we felt like,'" Mars said. "When I'm performing, this is what I want you to feel like. Hopefully everyone's partying with us."Mars performed the song, his 13th Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 chart, on "Saturday Night Live" last weekend. The tune comes after the massive success of "Uptown Funk" with Mark Ronson, which recently hit RIAA diamond status and won two Grammy Awards this year, including record of the year."24K Magic" is the first single — or invitation to the party as Mars puts it — for his third album of the same name, to be released Nov. 18. Two days later, he'll open the 2016 American Music Awards with a live performance.
