Doris Day, Hollywood legend and singer, dead at 97

Doris Day, a Hollywood screen legend, singer and animal welfare advocate, has died at the age of 97.

The Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed the star's death on Monday at her Carmel Valley, Calif., home.

Day, who turned 97 in April, had recently contracted pneumonia. She was surrounded by close friends at the time of her death.

Day, whose singing career included hits such as "Sentimental Journey" and "Que Sera Sera" from the film The Man Who Knew Too Much, also starred in films such as Calamity Jane, Pillow Talk, Love Me or Leave Me, The Pajama Game, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, Lover Come Back and The Winning Team alongside former President Ronald Reagan, among others.

The actress headlined The Doris Day Show on CBS which ran for five seasons from 1968 to 1973.

She received throughout her career a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004, a Grammy for Lifetime Achievement in 2008 and the Career Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association in 2011.

Day founded the Doris Day Animal Foundation in 1978 to help fight animal testing and to advocate for spaying and neutering. Her Spay Day program through the organization has turned into World Spay Day which takes place every year on the last Tuesday of February. The event helps provide free or reduced spay and neuter surgeries in 75 countries.

Which hit NBC series was renewed for three more seasons?

ABC renews 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Fresh Off the Boat;' cancels 'Kids Are Alright'

ABC has announced it renewed Ellen Pompeo's medical drama Grey's Anatomy for Seasons 16 and 17.

Station 19, a Grey's spinoff about firefighters, will return for a third season and Viola Davis' mystery drama How to Get Away with Murder was picked up for a sixth season, a press release from the network said. Shonda Rhimes developed all three shows for ABC before signing an exclusive production deal with Netflix in 2017. But her production company's For the People, a legal drama, on ABC was canceled.

"I'm thrilled to continue at the helm of Grey's Anatomy, and I'm honored and energized by the opportunity to run Station 19, as well. To expand upon the world Stacy McKee created, and further merge it with the world of Grey's, is an exciting challenge," Krista Vernoff, executive producer and show-runner for Grey's Anatomy and Station 19, said in a statement Friday.

The family sitcom Fresh Off the Boat -- starring Randall Park and Constance Wu -- was also renewed for a sixth season. The 1980s-set comedy The Goldbergs will be back for Season 7 and its spinoff Schooled will return for Season 2.

The Hollywood Reporter said Speechless, The Kids Are Alright, Splitting Up Together and The Fix, Take Two are among the shows that will not return for ABC's 2019-20 lineup.

Fox cancels 'Star,' 'Lethal Weapon,' 'Cool Kids'

Fox has canceled its Lee Daniels-created and Queen Latifah-led music drama Star after three seasons.

Variety said the network also axed its retirement-community comedy The Cool Kids -- starring Vicky Lawrence and Martin Mull -- and supernatural series The Passage -- featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Henry Ian Cusick -- after one season.

Deadline.com reported the network's buddy cop show Lethal Weapon won't return for another season either.

Inspired by the popular films from the 1980s and early '90s, the show starred Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans as a mismatched team of police detectives. Crawford was fired after two seasons and replaced by Seann William Scott in Season 3.

Wayans publicly said he didn't want to return for Season 4.

The Gifted -- a spinoff of the X-Men franchise -- recently was canceled by the network, but the sitcom Last Man Standing and Daniels' drama Empire have been renewed for Fox's 2019-20 season.

Which hit NBC series was renewed for three more seasons?

NBC said Sunday it has renewed its family drama This Is Us for three additional seasons.

The show, which wrapped its third season last month, stars Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Milo Ventimiglia and Justin Hartley.

"In a television landscape with nearly 500 original scripted series, there are very few, if any, that have the critical and cultural impact of This Is Us and we couldn't be more proud to bring fans three more seasons of a show that so well represents the NBC brand," Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a press release.

"A huge thank you and congratulations to our executive producers, cast and crew who reach new heights every week with the show's inventive and compelling storytelling."
