Tuesday Morning Entertainment Headlines

"DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL STARS"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Bristol Palin could be in trouble on "Dancing With the Stars: All Stars." The political daughter was at the bottom of the judges' leaderboard after her quickstep last night. Former Disney kid Sabrina Bryan gets the first nine of the season and had the best total scores of the night. She did well despite being dropped by her partner during rehearsal and cutting her arm. Emmitt Smith, who was the top scorer last week, finishes in the middle of the pack. The judges told the Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer he needs to up his game. Tonight, another celeb is sent packing.

"THE VOICE"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The coaches' chairs on "The Voice" won't be turning around anymore. At least not this season. The blind auditions are finished and the teams are complete. Team Cee Lo got the last pick of the evening, a Southern rocker who was so excited he started cursing a blue streak. Cee Lo Green also picks up one of Lady Gaga's former background singers, who has a history of eating disorders. Blake Shelton adds a guy who looks metal but sounds country. Team Christina adds a 15-year-old who skipped her prom to audition and a 16-year-old who once had a record deal that fell apart.

SETH MACFARLANE TO HOST THE OSCARS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Seth MacFarlane calls it "the greatest call" he's ever gotten in show business. The producers of the Oscars called to ask him to host the Academy Awards. Just because his TV shows "Family Guy" and "American Dad" border on R-rated sometimes, MacFarlane says he doesn't plan to be that kind of host. He says he's a fan of "old-fashioned showmanship." If you saw him host the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" you know he can sing. He dances, too. You can expect him to show off those skills. He says "it would be criminal to have an Oscars without music."

SETH MACFARLANE'S DAD NOT IMPRESSED BY HIM HOSTING THE OSCARS

UNDATED (AP) -- Seth MacFarlane is excited to be hosting the Oscars, but his dad's not impressed. MacFarlane posted a video on YouTube breaking the big news to his dad. His father was more interested in giving MacFarlane some of his "barely used" bathing suits. MacFarlane told his dad he was hoping for a better reaction. His father replied that hosting the Oscars was "wonderful news," but "getting almost brand-new bathing suits is also good news." When MacFarlane didn't seem to appreciate the gift, his dad took the bathing suits back and said he'd give them to Billy Crystal.

DREW BARRYMORE HAS A BABY

NEW YORK (AP) -- Drew Barrymore has had her baby. She gave birth to a girl named Olive. She's the first child for Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman. They've been married since June.

DON JOHNSON JURY AWARD CUT BY $8 MILLION

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Don Johnson will be getting $8 million less than he thought to make up for the profits he says he was owed for "Nash Bridges." A jury originally awarded Johnson more than $23 million. An appellate court dropped that to $15 million. He's still eligible to get millions of dollars of interest on the award.

"HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA" - FRAN DRESCHER

TORONTO (AP) -- Fran Drescher says "Hotel Transylvania" is like her old series "The Nanny" in that they both can be enjoyed by people of all ages. She says there are young people who watch her show in reruns who weren't even alive when the sitcom first aired. She says Hotel Transylvania tries to "strike that balance." She says "coming up with comedy that appeals to adults as well as children is what makes a good family film enduring."
