A female football coach will replace Glee's Coach Ken Tanaka and SYTYCD EP and judge Nigel Lythgoe may return to Idol to get rid of the current judges...this isn't just wishful thinking, this is today's news...
We're sure to get flack for this, but Supernatural... well, it just hasn't been all that great in the last couple seasons. Yes, there have been some stellar standout episodes, but much of the mythology and the ongoing story arcs... really didn't make much sense and lacked payoff. Personally, we liked the show a lot better when it had more monsters-of-the-week and less concentration on demons and seals and whatnot. There are loyal fans who will tune in no matter what, but some of us who have been watching since Day 1 were thrilled by the news from Comic-Con that new showrunner Sera Gamble plans to give us more creatures getting killed. We think this bloodthirsty redirection might be a refreshing change of pace, for a number of reasons.
The powers behind Glee announced at Comic-Con that they will do a Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed episode next season. While we'd be happy if this just meant that the characters would be dressing up and doing a midnight audience participation performance of the show to raise money for New Directions, we'd be really thrilled if it was a Halloween episode that did a full-on tribute to the cult musical and movie. Here are our suggestions on how we'd cast it.
Ah, Orange County. Land of so-bad-it's-good televised opportunities, exemplified by shows like The O.C., Laguna Beach, Newport Harbor and Real Housewives of Orange County, where the average household income consists of too many digits for the shows' stars to add up (without the help of a calculator-toting assistant). What those shows fail to acknowledge is the existence of lower-class families in their neighborhoods, living paycheck-to-paycheck to reside in a single filthy motel room they can barely afford, which is the focus of Alexandra Pelosi's new documentary series on HBO, Homeless: The Motel Kids of Orange County.
If The City gets cancelled along with The Hills, we hope MTV will launch a new, similarly titled series to replace it. Our suggestions: The Marsh, The Desert, The Village, The Rock and The Airtight Bank Vault.
Chuck gets a badass mom in the form of Linda Hamilton, plus tons of TV news about people hailing from across the pond, including Alfred Molina, Liam Neeson, John Oliver, and the Duchess of York. Yeah, it's that kind of news day...
Hugh Laurie is a man of many talents: Drama, comedy, boxing, charity, security, raising Stuart Little, etc., and now, naturally, he is recording a blues album. Sure, why not? I'm sure Band from TV is fun, but not terribly rewarding creatively, and the same could be said for the past couple seasons of House, likely minus the fun part -- the man probably needs an outlet. But what will the album's tracklisting look like? It's time to look up some blues standards on Wikipedia and guess.
If you are a twelve-year old girl, or a sixty-year-old mom, have we got news for you today.
Survivor is breaking its tradition and letting a very famous (and very rich) contestant on the show. While Crystal was an Olympian, Taj was part of a singing group (and had a football-playing husband) and Brian was a rich former porn star, adding coach Jimmy Johnson really notches up the recognizability factor. Anyone who watches football or is looking for some male enhancement knows the former Cowboys and Dolphins coach and current sportscaster/ExtenZe hawker. So if Survivor is going to start adding in celebrity folks, we've got suggestions for others in the sports field who we'd like to see outwitting, outplaying and outlasting the competition.
Dina Lohan continues to destroy her family with her ambition, and Katie Holmes freaks us out once again.
