The First Canceled Show Of The Season Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows
manhattan-love-story-canceled

There’s no happily ever after for Manhattan Love Story. It took exceptionally much longer this year to happen, but the axe has finally fallen.

The ABC romantic comedy is the first causality of the new television season. The most recent episode attracted only 2.62 million viewers and a paltry 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-to-49 demographic. I saw the first episode but it didn’t really do anything for me even though I like the leads played by ANTM alum Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman.

ABC was also the first network to cancel a show last year. However, the axe fell on Lucky on October 4. CBS’ Made In Jersey and NBC’s The Playboy Club earned the dishonorable distinction on Oct. 10, 2012 and Oct. 4, 2011 respectively. Typically, networks have been swift and fast getting rid of dead weight but this year they’ve been taking their time. Will more shows follow suit now that the first casualty has occurred?

In other ABC-related news, the alphabet network gave good news to seven of its shows by ordering more episodes. Find out which shows will air less repeats below.

All the hard work has paid off!!! Five years after appearing on American Idol, Todrick Hall lands a full-time gig on television and gets Hollywood validation. Take that Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze ;)

Known for his impeccably produced YouTube videos, Hall has parodied Disney movies, beloved musicals, Mean Girls and everything in between. In 2015, he’ll take his cheeky brand of humor to MTV. The network has ordered eight episodes of his new show, documenting the life of a YouTube star. It’ll also follow Todrick as he takes his video concept ideas to fruition.

Hall is the latest YouTube star making it big on mainstream media. Bethany Mota has taken her fashion schtick all the way to Project Way guest judge to competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars. In true Hall fashion, he announced his television deal by filming a parody of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Check out the wicked clip below.

Thank you to everybody who has supported me since before I even knew what a subscriber was. I am without words and searching for the vocabulary to say how blessed, humbled, honored, and flattered I feel to have been given this amazing opportunity. I can’t wait to bring my crazy world of YouTube to a brand new audience and I hope you all will join me on what is sure to be a ridiculous ride. Love you with all my whimsical heart,

Sincerely,

Todrick D. Hall, AKA Quing Toddy.

FOX Developing Series Based On Archie Comics

From the man who brought Arrow and The Flash to the small screen comes another comic book adaptation. However, this time it doesn’t involve any superheroes. Greg Berlanti just inked a deal to bring a live-action drama series based on Archie Comics on FOX. He’s two for two recently, so I have high hopes.

nicki-minaj-mtv-emas

Nicki Minaj cleans up quite nicely I have to say. The 31-year-old rapper almost looks ladylike in a promo for the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards. Definitely a far cry from her booty-popping album cover artwork and “Anaconda” music video. MTV predicts she’ll slay hosting the annual event. I’m cautiously optimistic myself :)

In addition to being master of ceremonies, Nicki will take to the stage to deliver what will undoubtedly be a watercooler performance. Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande, Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran and Kiesza will also take to the stage.

The 2014 MTV EMAs will air on November 9, live from the SSE Hydro arena in Glasgow, Scotland. Check out the cute promo below. Be prepared to bow down bitches!!!

Empire Amps The Crazy Factor With Courtney Love

Courtney Love is one crazy ass bitch and I say that with all of the utmost respect. She’s at often times very unpredictable which is why I love her. Plus I was a huge fan of her band Hole back in the day.

The 50-year-old musician has just joined the cast of midseason hip-hop drama Empire in a recurring guest star role. She will play Elle Dallas, “a hard rock powerhouse, who is part of Empire Entertainment’s stable of artists.”

Are you kidding me? Love and Naomi Campbell on the same show? This is going to be beyond epic. Empire can’t get here soon enough.

This latest acting gig comes on the heels of Hole’s recurring stint on FX’s Sons of Anarchy. It’s nice to see Courtney dabbling in acting again. Years ago she made a splash in such memorable roles in The People vs. Larry Flynt, The Man in the Moon and 200 Ciagarettes.

The FOX drama stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, the head of a record label. Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Gabourey Sidibe (American Horror Story), Derek Luke (The Americans) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club) round out the cast. Are you excited for Love’s addition? Sound off below.

FOX Developing Series Based On Hitch

Somebody stop the madness!!! The remake revolution of 2014 is getting out of control. The list of remakes in the works during this development season is growing too rapidly each day.

Rush Hour, In Good Company, The Illusionist, Bachelor Party, Marley & Me, Problem Child and The Money Pit are just a few series being developed based on feature films. FOX already has Monster-In-Law and Big in the works. Now, it can add Will Smith’s hit 2005 film Hitch to the list. The film generated nearly $370 million.

ABC Orders Shark Tank Spinoff

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Fridays are generally considered a television graveyard where networks put their series to die. Not only has Shark Tank survived six seasons, but it’s thrived.

It’s grown from an average of 4.81 million viewers during its first season to 7+ million for its current. The hit show celebrates its milestone 100th episode next month. Wisely, ABC has finally decided to take advantage of its sleeper hit and is investing more in the investment series.

Shark Tank, based on the Japanese Dragon’s Den format, features moneyed investors such as Marc Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, and Barbara Corcoran taking on potential ventures. My favorite part of every episode is when they give updates on some of the businesses they’ve invested in.

Beyond The Tank will give a deeper and detailed look at what happens when a shark partners up with an entrepreneur. Mark Burnett who executive produces Shark Tank will also helm the spinoff. ABC hasn’t revealed when it’ll air the ten episodes. Read a detailed description of the new show below.

jessica-lange-gods-and-monsters-cover

Jessica Lange’s much-hyped cover of Lana Del Rey didn’t disappoint. Her alter ego Elsa Mars performed “Gods And Monsters” on last night’s Halloween-themed episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Lange served major Marlene Dietrich diva realness during her performance. She can definitely rock that feather boa like no other. Ryan Murphy wasn’t exaggerating with his description teasing the number.

As glamorous as it was, I’m still giving the edge to Sarah Paulson’s “Criminal” cover on episode two. Watching one twin providing background vocals for the other was everything. Do you agree? If you missed last night’s episode, Lange’s number was a definite must-watch. If you caught it, why not watch it again below. Enjoy.
