"DOWNTON ABBEY" - ALLEN LEECH

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Allen Leech wants fans to be excited about "Downton Abbey" without pestering him for details that ruin everything. Leech, who plays Tom Branson, says it's like pulling a loose thread: "People just want to know more and more and more and more." He believes it would be so much easier if "Downton Abbey" ran at the same time in both the U.K. and the U.S. He says that way he wouldn't have to worry about spoilers. "Downton Abbey" premieres on PBS in January. The premiere date in the U.K. has not been announced.

Allen Leech says it would be so much easier if British fans didn't blow the plot of "Downton Abbey" to fans in the United States.

MICHAEL MOORE'S DIVORCE

BELLAIRE, Mich. (AP) -- They worked together on many of films. But in the end Michael Moore and Kathleen Glynn couldn't make their marriage work any longer. The filmmaker has gotten a final decree of divorce from his wife of two decades. The consent judgment of divorce was entered -- with the case closing on Tuesday. In his filing for divorce last year, Moore said his relationship with Glynn had broken down and there was "no reasonable likelihood" that the marriage could be saved. The couple married in 1991. Glynn served as producer or executive producer on many of Moore's documentaries, including "Fahrenheit 9/11," "Sicko" and "Capitalism: A Love Story."

ERIC STONESTREET-"MODERN FAMILY" HELPING TO CHANGE ATTITUDES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Eric Stonestreet says "Modern Family" is helping to change attitudes toward gays. He plays Cam on the ABC sitcom and married his partner Mitch in the season finale. Stonestreet says people come up to him to say the show has made it easier for them to come out to their families. He says parents tell him Mitch and Cam help them to understand their gay children. The two-time Emmy winner says when gay marriage became legal in California, it made sense to have his character tie the knot. When Modern Family returns in the fall, Stonestreet says Mitch and Cam will just be a regular married couple.

Eric Stonestreet says his gay relationship on "Modern Family" is something that even non-gays can understand.

LONDON (AP) -- Adele's son fought the paparazzi and won. He's not even two years old.

Adele's lawyer, Jenny Afia (AH'-fee-ah), says Adele realizes she is a public figure but her son is not.

MICHAEL JACKSON TO HAVE SCHOOL NAMED AFTER HIM

GARY, Ind. (AP) -- A school named after Michael Jackson? There are plans to do just that in the late pop star's hometown of Gary, Indiana. The Gary Community School Board has agreed with Jackson's mother Katherine on a way "to honor Michael Jackson and to inspire children to excel in the arts and education." A school district official says she is working with the Jackson family on which school to rename. Michael Jackson spent the first 11 years of his life in Gary. His family moved to California after the Jackson 5 hit the big time in 1969. Jackson was acquitted of child molestation charges in June, 2005. A school district spokeswoman says the accusations never were considered during talks about renaming a school for him.

JASON ALDEAN OFFERS CONDOLENCES AFTER FAN FOUND DEAD

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jason Aldean is sending "sincere condolences" to the family and friends of Cory Barron, a fan who was found dead after he was last seen at Aldean's Cleveland concert. Police say Barron, of Fremont, Ohio, disappeared while attending Aldean's concert on Friday. A worker found his body in a landfill 35 miles away. Police believe Barron may have fallen down a five-story garbage chute and landed in a large waste container. Police are investigating the death as a homicide.

PITTSBURGH STEELS SELF AGAINST JASON ALDEAN TAILGATERS

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Those who want to spend the whole day grilling and chilling before going to see Jason Aldean in Pittsburgh will have to "get their party on" somewhere other than PNC Park. The mayor of Pittsburgh and officials who control parking at the city's sports stadiums have limited tailgating hours at the ballpark. The aim: to avoid the kind of rowdy behavior and heaps of trash that has marked some shows in the Steel City. The tailgating will be limited to five hours before the 7 p.m. show. Last month's Like Bryan concert at Heinz Field was marred by scores of emergency calls and a mountain of debris -- including some that contained human waste.

KRISTIAN BUSH ON PERFORMING WITH HIS BROTHER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Kristian Bush says he and his brother speak two languages: English and music. And with good reason -- he says they were immersed in both "languages" when they were young. Bush says he and his younger brother were raised in an experimental music program that taught them music while they learned to read and write. He says that means when you see them perform, they are communicating with each other through their instruments. He says even when they have disagreements, instead of arguing, they "play it out." Bush says at family funerals they're asked to perform because they can express grief with their music, instead of using words.

Kristian Bush says it's almost like he and his brother Brandon are bilingual.

Rewind Time

July 24, 2014 07:10 GMT

Today is Thursday, July 24, the 205th day of 2014. There are 160 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On July 24, 1974, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that President Richard Nixon had to turn over subpoenaed White House tape recordings to the Watergate special prosecutor.

On this date:

In 1783, Latin American revolutionary Simon Bolivar (see-MOHN' boh-LEE'-vahr) was born in Caracas, Venezuela.

In 1862, Martin Van Buren, the eighth president of the United States, and the first to have been born a U.S. citizen, died at age 79 in Kinderhook, New York, the town where he was born in 1782.

In 1866, Tennessee became the first state to be readmitted to the Union after the Civil War.

In 1911, Yale University history professor Hiram Bingham III found the "Lost City of the Incas," Machu Picchu, in Peru.

In 1923, the Treaty of Lausanne, which settled the boundaries of modern Turkey, was concluded in Switzerland.

In 1937, the state of Alabama dropped charges against four of the nine young black men accused of raping two white women in the "Scottsboro Case."

In 1952, President Harry S. Truman announced a settlement in a 53-day steel strike.

In 1959, during a visit to Moscow, Vice President Richard Nixon engaged in his famous "Kitchen Debate" with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.

In 1969, the Apollo 11 astronauts -- two of whom had been the first men to set foot on the moon -- splashed down safely in the Pacific.

In 1987, Hulda Crooks, a 91-year-old mountaineer from California, became the oldest woman to conquer Mount Fuji, Japan's highest peak.

In 1998, a gunman burst into the U.S. Capitol, killing two police officers before being shot and captured. (The shooter, Russell Eugene Weston Jr., is being held in a federal mental facility.)

In 2002, nine coal miners became trapped in a flooded tunnel of the Quecreek Mine in western Pennsylvania; the story ended happily 77 hours later with the rescue of all nine.

Ten years ago: Without promising what specific steps he would take, President George W. Bush said in his weekly radio address that his administration was committed to relying on the recommendations of the September 11 commission in waging the war on terrorism. Former Nixon administration official Fred LaRue, who served a prison term for Watergate, died in Biloxi, Mississippi, at age 75.

Five years ago: Trying to tamp down a national uproar over race, President Barack Obama acknowledged using unfortunate words in declaring that Cambridge, Massachusetts, police had "acted stupidly" in arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr., adding he'd invited the Harvard professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the arresting officer, for "a beer here in the White House."

One year ago: The House narrowly rejected, 217-205, a challenge to the National Security Agency's secret collection of hundreds of millions of Americans' phone records. A high-speed train crash outside Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain killed 79 people. Pope Francis made an emotional plea in Aparecida, Brazil, for Roman Catholics to shun materialism in the first public Mass of his initial international trip as pontiff. It was announced by Kensington Palace that the newborn son of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, would be named George Alexander Louis. Virginia Johnson, half of the renowned Masters and Johnson team of sex researchers, died in St. Louis at age 88.

Today's Birthdays: Actor John Aniston is 81. Political cartoonist Pat Oliphant is 79. Comedian Ruth Buzzi is 78. Actor Mark Goddard is 78. Actor Dan Hedaya is 74. Actor Chris Sarandon is 72. Comedian Gallagher is 68. Actor Robert Hays is 67. Former Republican national chairman Marc Racicot (RAWS'-koh) is 66. Actor Michael Richards is 65. Actress Lynda Carter is 63. Movie director Gus Van Sant is 62. Country singer Pam Tillis is 57. Actor Paul Ben-Victor is 52. Actor Kadeem Hardison is 49. Actress-singer Kristin Chenoweth is 46. Actress Laura Leighton is 46. Actor John P. Navin Jr. is 46. Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez is 45. Basketball player-turned-actor Rick Fox is 45. Actor Eric Szmanda is 39. Actress Rose Byrne is 35. Country singer Jerrod Niemann is 35. Actress Summer Glau is 33. Actress Elisabeth Moss is 32. Actress Anna Paquin is 32. Actress Megan Park is 28. Actress Mara Wilson is 27. Rock singer Jay McGuiness (The Wanted) is 24. Actress Emily Bett Rickards (TV: Arrow") is 23. TV personality Bindi Irwin is 16.

Thought for Today: "Everything has two sides -- the outside that is ridiculous, and the inside that is solemn." -- Olive Schreiner, South African author and feminist (1855-1920).

RIHANNA: CONCERT SERIES STARTS WITH PARTY

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Usually showing up late for a date will get you a less-than-warm reception. But Rihanna got cheers -- even though she was two hours behind schedule for her performance in Mexico City the other night. She started what's known as her "777" tour with an exclusive party for about 2,000 fans. She thanked fans for their patience, saying their hanging in there until she showed up Wednesday night really made her "feel loved." The concert swing will see Rihanna perform seven shows in seven days in seven different cities. Stops on the tour include Toronto, Paris, Berlin and London before ending up in New York City.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Nicki Minaj has already won a lot of awards during her career. But she says her career isn't about collecting hardware to put in her trophy case. She says the biggest draw for her being awards shows is performing before a live audience at the venue and on TV. She says that's what she will be looking forward to at the American Music Awards on Sunday. She says she has been at awards shows where she totally forgot she was up for a nomination -- until her name was read off as a winner. The way she sees it, if she keeps making good music, the awards will take care of herself. If you should happen to run into Nicki between now and Sunday, you can remind her she's up for four nominations at the AMAs.

Nicki Minaj says she's more excited about performing at award shows than she is at winning trophies.

THE SUPREMES: FORMER HOUSING PROJECT IN DETROIT TO BE RAZED

DETROIT (AP) -- They most recently were known as the Frederick Douglass Homes in Detroit. But back in the day they were known as the Brewster projects. And that was the place where Diana Ross and the Supremes grew up. Now, the housing project is about to become another memory.

The city has no set plans for redevelopment of the complex where Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson lived before signing with Berry Gordy's Motown Records in the early 1960s. Bing says he knows the former Brewster projects have "a lot of history" -- but has since "become an eyesore."
