    Idina Menzel, Bethany Mota, More Set For “Undercover Boss: Celebrity Edition”

    Last spring, CBS trialed special celebrity editions of “Undercover Boss.”

    This spring, the network is moving forward with a complete season of the celebrity-themed show.

    Whereas the original series involves executives going undercover to learn about the innerworkings of their companies, the celebrity version generally finds disguised stars interacting with talented people in their professional fields.

    “Imagine if your idol could walk a mile in your shoes, recognize your special ability and change your life forever? This is what you’ll see this season on the celebrity edition of UNDERCOVER BOSS – along with state-of-the-art disguises, trickier undercover situations – and the greatest payoffs yet,” said Greg Goldman, executive producer of the new series.

    The season premieres on May 11. Ahead of that launch, CBS revealed the first four celebrity guests. Episode previews follow:

    “Jersey Shore” Cast, Priyanka Chopra Scheduled For “The View” Episodes

    Ratings: Syfy’s “Krypton” Endures Another Decline

    For the fifth consecutive week, Syfy’s “Krypton” endured week-over-week declines in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

    According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Wednesday’s episode drew a 0.17 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 597,000 overall viewers.

    The numbers trail the 0.22 rating and 725,000 viewer mark garnered by the previous installment.

    Wednesday’s episode marked the sixth installment of “Krypton,” which premiered on March 21. That premiere drew a 0.42 rating and 1.32 million viewer mark, which means this week’s episode less than half the initial audience.

    While “Krypton” is not at all a bad performer by Syfy standards, its numbers certainly do not befit the pre-premiere hype and promotion. They certainly do not establish “Krypton” as a major hit.

    As viewers increasingly turn to DVR and streaming and networks increasingly look beyond live+same-day ratings when renewing series, there is nonetheless no way to meaningfully assess its renewal prospects.

    “Krypton” may not be living up to the hype, but it is still — at least as of right now — big by Syfy standards. But is it big enough to warrant additional investment from Syfy?

    Camila Cabello Confirms “Never Be The Same” Remix, Thanks Kane Brown For “Magical Voice”

    In a Tuesday Tweet, Camila Cabello confirmed that she had a surprise for her fans coming this week.

    It did not stay a surprise for long.

    Fans quickly noticed that a new version of “Never Be The Same” featuring country artist Kane Brown had been registered in the ISRC database. Brown, moreover, posted fire emojis in response to Cabello’s initial Tweet.

    Thursday, Cabello confirmed the validity of her fans’ investigation. In posts across her social networks, she revealed that she collaborated with Kane Brown for a new version of “Never Be The Same,” which will be revealed late Thursday/early Friday (midnight ET).

    In addition to confirming the release, Cabello shared a brief note about the idea for the remix — and her happiness with Brown’s involvement.

    “When we were writing this song, [co-writer and producer] Frank Dukes kept telling me ‘the melodies you’re doing make it feel like this could be a country song’,” wrote Cabello. “Ever since we finished writing it i always thought this could be reimagined with a country artist, and i heard Kane brown’s song “What Ifs” one day and freaked out!!!!”

    Calling Brown the “perfect artist” with which to remake the song, Cabello declares his vocal contribution “magical.”

    “I’m so so excited about this and hope you love it as much as i do and thank you Kane for your magical voice, this song tells a different story now,” added Cabello.

    The “Never Be The Same” remix enters the market as the original version moves toward #1 on the pop radio airplay chart. The song meanwhile occupies a Top 10 position at hot adult contemporary radio and a Top 15 slot on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot 100.

    It is unclear if there are any plans to promote the Kane Brown version to country radio, where Brown’s own “Heaven” is marching toward #1.
