We were never going to have troubles filling a TCA press tour panel for FX's "Justified," which started its fifth season last week, but Tuesday's (January 14) panel got an extra jolt when the network announced that next season will be the show's last.
At his executive session, John Landgraf said that the decision to end "Justified" came entirely from producer Graham Yost and star Timothy Olyphant.
Let's get down to the business of learning why...
FX's John Landgraf is an always-candid TCA press tour presence.
Normally we're happy to see him and reasonably gentle, leading to a positive tone. Will things be any different on Tuesday (January 14) morning after the somewhat bumpy FXX roll-out, including the abrupt cancellation of W. Kamau Bell's late-night show?
We'll see. Click through to see what Landgraf has to say...
It's time for our latest "American Idol" panel.
Season 13 starts on Wednesday and I can tell you that the new judging panel of Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. isn't the toxic cesspool that FOX created that season when they thought drama between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey would be a big draw. The judges have a nice chemistry and, at least in the first episode, it's true that the good singers have been foregrounded and there are only a couple time-wasting joke auditions.
Expect the judges and Ryan Seacrest to talk about putting the emphasis back on the contestants as they meet with the Television Critics Association press tour.

Thanks to Sunday's Golden Globe awards, FOX Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly has plenty to celebrate at his Television Critics Association press tour pow-wow with reporters. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was a surprise double-winner and it's always good to have positives.
How long will Reilly be able to remain chipper?
