The TCAs rolled into day three yesterday, which brought some major developments from Fox. Simon Cowell made a surprise appearance during the executive panel to announce this season will be his last on American Idol. With his departure, Simon will bring the X Factor to the States, which he will judge and executive produce. Simon spoke about his love for AI, calling it the best eight years of his life and even hinting at bringing Paula onto X Factor when he revealed, "I adore Paula, whatever happens I will be working with her in some capacity. I miss her." Later in the day we got a look at the upcoming season of 24 from Kiefer Sutherland, Freddie Prinze Jr., and the rest of the cast, who are upping the action this year from NYC. Freddie said he was so excited to play his latest role saying, "I'm usually struggling to fall in love for 96 minutes, and I always get the girl."
After the panels the stars moved to Fox's All Star party. The cast of Glee were all in attendance and so excited to celebrate the news their show got picked up for a second season. Kevin McHale told us they were all on set together when they found out, and as far as his hopes for season two, he's excited for the songs and dances to get bigger and bigger. Lea Michele and Dianna Agron stuck close to each other all night long. When asked about filming The Romantics, Dianna revealed the cast was so much fun to work with and that she was especially excited when Katie Holmes revealed she's a big fan of Glee. Also fresh off a People's Choice Awards win, Olivia Wilde looked gorgeous as usual among the members of the House cast in attendance. There's still lots of fun to come from the TCAs so stay tuned for updates on Twitter.
