Very little time at Monday's FOX 2013-14 upfront presentation was devoted to the elephant in New York's Beacon Theater – America Idol's
troubled, near-completed season – except to compare the show's long-running success to Gunsmoke's.
This caused a moment's pause, not only with the thought that the incredibly influential, always buzzed-about Idol could ever be gone, but also with the reflection that at some time in the future it would be completely irrelevant. Ah well.
The bulk of FOX's smoothly clockwork presentation, of course, kept an eye on that future, at least a few months from now, with clips of upcoming shows. Nothing looked as remotely silly as last year's short-lived Mob Doctor, which was a relief, and there were several premieres that will have people talking:

Justin Timberlake brought sexy back – and plenty of A-list wattage – to his sold-out concert at Roseland Ballroom in New York on Sunday night.
Performing songs from his new album The 20/20 Experience during a two-hour show, the pop star was supported by his wife Jessica Biel and pals like Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde, Andy Samberg, Joanna Newsom, Brooke Shields and Uma Thurman.
Biel, dressed in a navy tank top and white pants, had a blast rocking out in the VIP mezzanine area during the show, which was sponsored by MasterCard. "She knew all the words to his songs and was dancing the whole time," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked very proud."

But even as best dressed lists, touching acceptance speeches and an appearance by the First Lady at the Academy Awards dominated the headlines, a few stars managed to reveal big news of their own.

It's no joke: Andy Samberg is engaged!
The former Saturday Night Live funnyman popped the question to singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom after five years together, Samberg's rep confirms to PEOPLE.
In addition to her role as a singer-songwriter, Newsom, 31, also plays the harp, piano and harpsichord.
The Celeste and Jesse Forever actor, 34, and Newsom attended the Independent Spirit Awards together on Saturday, which Samberg hosted.

New couple alert?
Rose Byrne and Boardwalk Empire's Bobby Cannavale clutched hands as they surreptitiously made their way through the crowd inside the Hall of Ocean Life at New York's American Museum of Natural History Monday night. Though the duo never posed for pictures together on the red carpet, they looked to be very much together and enjoying each other's company at a bash to celebrate IFC's hit comedy Portlandia's upcoming third season (Jan. 4, 10 p.m. ET). (When asked if they were dating, Byrne's rep had no comment.)
The soiree, which began with a screening of two upcoming episodes from the series and an introduction by its stars and writers, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, continued into the vast ocean-themed room, lined with hundreds of models of sea creatures and bathed purplish-blue lights as a 94 ft. long blue whale hung from the ceiling.
A who's who of the comedy world stars – Martin Short; David Cross and wife Amber Tamblyn; and most of the current cast of SNL – mingled in the large room, chatting with each other and with fans (there was no separate VIP section) and grabbing drinks from the large bar in the center of the room or nibbling passed Hors d'oeuvre such as bite-sized waffles with Camembert cheese.

It's la bella vita for Justin Timberlake and his bride-to-be Jessica Biel.
The happy couple have been celebrating in Italy along with close friends Andy Samberg, Timbaland and 7th Heaven's Beverly Mitchell in advance of their weekend wedding.
According to multiple reports and published photos, on Thursday, Timberlake and Biel hosted a party where guests hung out around open fires and dined on fresh-made cheese, local olives and wine.
Shots of the occasion snapped by Splash News show guests (including former SNL star Samberg) lounging outside on white furniture. According to E! Online, the pair were both casually dressed – Biel in pants and a beige top, and Timberlake in blue pants, a white shirt and a skinny tie.

Celebrities know they've made it big when they're mocked by a Saturday Night Live cast member, and Paul the Psychic Octopus was no exception.
Andy Samberg, who dressed up as an octopus and portrayed Paul as a boozy, cocky creature on the ESPY Awards, says it was his growing fame that contributed to Paul's demise this week.
"I'm greatly saddened by this news, but must quote Paul himself when he said, 'Mo' Money, Mo' Problems,'" a deadpan Samberg, who is an SNL cast member, tells PEOPLE. "In this case, the 'problem' is death."
