NEW YORK (AP) -- They won't host "Saturday Night Live" like Donald Trump did. But NBC has agreed to give four Republican presidential candidates free air time -- because the network let Trump host SNL this month. After the show, John Kasich, Mike Huckabee, James Gilmore and Lindsay Graham complained about the time given Trump -- and the network calculated Trump got 12 minutes of face time. NBC will now give the four GOP hopefuls free airtime on affiliates in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. George Pataki also complained about the Trump appearance. The network didn't announce an agreement with his campaign but Pataki has told campaign supporters NBC had agreed to give him equal time, too.

Nick Carter also makes it to tonight's finale with a double round of perfect scores. Alek Skarlatos is the third finalist. Carlos PenaVega won't be in the running.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The kids of "The Voice" are fighting above their weight class. The young'uns made a big impression on the coaches last night. Emily Ann Roberts just turned 17. Coach Blake Shelton says America can thank her for bringing a classic country sound to network TV. Sixteen-year-old Madi Davis got raves from the coaches for her version of U2's "Love Is Blindness." And 15-year-old Braiden Sunshine did a soaring rendition of a song that is more than twice as old as he is. He did "True" by Spandau Ballet, which came out in 1983. Tonight, one hopeful will be sent home, cutting the field to the Top 10.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The money outlook is a little better for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2." But it still hasn't changed the overall picture. The final numbers show the final installment in the "Hunger Games" franchise took in $102.7 million in its debut weekend. That's higher than the studio-reported estimates that came out Sunday. But despite the increase, it's still the lowest debut of the four Hunger Games movies.
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- She can speak Spanish now. But Eva Longoria says there was a time she was like the main character in her new series "Telenovela" -- in that she didn't speak Spanish. But that didn't keep her from watching the Spanish-language soap operas that give her upcoming series its name. Longoria says the drama if a telenovela needs no translation. She says if you watch, "you are completely entertained, whether you speak the language or not." "Telenovela" gets a premiere on NBC next month before landing on the schedule in January.
