Entertainment News For Friday!

    Duck Dynasty's Robertson family appears to be threatening to walk off the show over the suspension of their patriarch Phil. He was put on hiatus by A&E over comments he made about gays and blacks in an interview with GQ magazine. But now the Robertsons are firing back at the network with a statement that implies they won't do the show without him. In the statement, they said, "We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty."     

     Demi Lovato is stepping down as a judge on X Factor. People magazine reports that Demi is abandoning ship as the singing competition continues to plummet in the ratings, but a source close to her says that's not the reason for her departure, adding, "She had a great run and a good time, but she plans to spend next year completely focused on her music." That plan includes her first headlining arena tour, which kicks off in Vancouver on February 9th. And proving there are no hard feelings towards her old bosses, she's taking along X Factor alumni Cher Lloyd and Fifth Harmony as opening acts.

     You could say Katie Couric has lost the trifecta of news. Upon her talk show being canceled by ABC, Katie has now been fired from the three original TV networks ABC, CBS and NB). Katie is in the middle of her second season of the talk show, which never caught fire. There were high hopes she could attain the throne vacated by Oprah. Yet, it is Ellen DeGeneres who is the daytime talk queen -- without one hard-hitting question. But don’t cry for Katie. She’s landed on her feet, yet again. Yahoo hired her and is paying Katie 6 million dollars to act as their Global News Anchor.

      After months of rumors, Jimmy Fallon was announced as the new host of The Tonight Show in April. Jay will hand over the reins just after NBC wraps up coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics, at which point the show will return to New York City -- where it was based from 1954 until 1972, when Johnny Carson moved it to "beautiful downtown Burbank," California. SNL cast member Seth Meyers was later named Jimmy's replacement on Late Night.
