HBO scratched plans for a season two of Vinyl. The 1970s music drama, exec produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, had been renewed for a sophomore season despite soft ratings, with Scott Z. Burns replacing co-creator Terence Winter as showrunner. “After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of Vinyl,” said HBO in a statement. “Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will broadcast two weeks of live shows during the political conventions, from July 18-21 during the Republican convention in Cleveland, and from July 25-28 as the the Democratic event unfolds in Philadelphia. Colbert will host from NYC, where his guests will react to the day’s events. The CBS late nighter will also have an on-site presence at the conventions.

Michelle Obama will be James Corden’s next Carpool Karaoke guest. “Hi, I’m at the White House today,” said the Late Late Show host on the First Lady’s Snapchat account. “I’m going to take a spin in a car and sing songs with…” “Me,” chimed in Michelle Obama. The video is “coming up,” says CBS.

Cristina Ferrare, co-host of Hallmark Channel morning show Home & Family, is being replaced by Debbie Matenopoulos, the Home & Family lifestyle expert who first shot to fame as co-host of The View from 1997-99. What’s the deal? “It’s really very simple,” said Ferrare on her Facebook page. “Home and Family will have a season 5 which I am so happy for and the Network decided that they want a new co-host and that will be Debbie. She will do a great job!” Praising Ferrare’s “warmth and grace,” Michelle Vicary, Hallmark EVP of programming and publicity, added that Matenopoulos has “quickly become an audience favorite.” Lifestyle show airs weekdays at 10a.

HBO landed the most 2016 TCA Awards nominations with 12, while USA’s Mr. Robot and FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson tied with four each.
