>> that's right. "e.t." starts right now. hello, and welcome to "entertainment tonight," coming to you exclusively from the iconic set of "america's funniest home videos." only three men can say they've hosted this show, and one of them is right here, mr. alfonso ribeiro. by the way, we're going to put to work today. >> i'm ready for this. >> let's do it. >> i'm guessing we should start with all the drama over on "america's got talent." >> don't do it too well. easy now. >> that is the place to start, because all eyes are now on the mastermind behind it all, simon cowell. >> it was a total mess from start to finish. >> simon in the crosshairs. >> don't be cocky. >> it seems the about creator and judge is at the center of nbc's investigation into the show. >> look, it's just my opinion. >> quote, the ball is in nbc's court to see if they can get cowell to agree to make some changes to the way things are done on the show. fired judge gabrielle union, who was back on set last night of her police drama "l.a.'s finest," met with nbc on tuesday.
both she and the network called the meeting productive. we broke that news to julianne hough, who was also let go as an "agt" judge. >> gabrielle said that she had a five-hour meeting with the network yesterday that she felt was productive. >> oh, good. that's amazing. that makes me really happy. that's such an amazing step in >> julianne and gabrielle's firings lead to allegations of a toxic culture on the "agt" set. claims that union's hairstyles were criticized for being too black and complaints that simon illegally smoked inside the theatre where "agt" tapes. former judge sharen osbourne told us simon smoked constantly. >> he's probably the only one i worked with that smoked in a building or wherever he wants. >> set the record straight for us. why are you not returning to the sho show? >> my option was nod picked up. >> were you given a reason?
>> actually, no. >> hough, who has a christmas special with nbc, also appeared last night at the networks' christmas tree lighting in rockefeller center. meanmwhile, "e.t." has learned that nbc and the production companies behind "agt" have hired outside legal counsel to assist them in learning more about the facts. whether simon ultimately apologizes remains to be seen. justin timberlake meanwhile just unleashed one massive mea culpa to wife jessica biel. ♪ everybody says say something, say something ♪ >> 13 days after justin was photographed holding hands with co-star alisha wainwright in new orleans, his message is clear -- yes, his behavior was an alcohol-fueled lapse in judgment, but no, he didn't cheat. ♪ dont want to talk about it, i'm just so sick about it ♪ >> on instagram justin says, quote, let me be clear -- nothing happened. i regret my behavior. i should have known better. this is not the example i want to set for my son. i apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation. ♪ the old me is dead and gone >> tuesday jessica was spotted out and about in l.a.
