the-view-season-18-premiere

With double the Rosies (O’Donnell and Perez), things came up very rosy for The View. The long-running daytime chatfest netted its best season premiere ratings in eight years, drawing 3.9 million total viewers.

Coincidentally enough, it was the best since the first time Rosie O’Donnell joined the show in 2006. It was up 15% in the 18-49 age group over last year’s launch, and up 20% with women 25-54.

It appears all the changes (new panelists Nicole Wallace and Perez, new executive producer, new studio and new set) are working. At least so far, it is. Question is, will it continue?

I missed the season premiere, but caught the second episode. While I enjoyed it for the most part, it was awkward at times. The chemistry among the women isn’t there just yet. Understandable given their short time together. It’ll be interesting to see how long O’Donnell plays nice with the other ladies, especially with the Republican. Any wagers?

If you missed the premiere, check out the segment below where the ladies introduce themselves. If you’ve sampled the new View, are you liking the new changes? Be sure to weigh in below.

dwts-season-19-premiere

The premiere of any Dancing With The Stars season is my favorite. Watching which stars come out as the early frontrunners and surprise me with their dancing talent brings out my inner nerd. It’s not uncommon to see me break into a smile or clap after witnessing an endearing performance. The Season 19 kick-off was no different.

Though the cast has been criticized for not being exciting or bringing in the star wattage, I quite enjoyed the show. Not surprisingly, Alfonso Ribeiro topped the leaderboard, scoring 9s across the board. After all, he did dance with Michael Jackson as a kid and gave us ‘The Carlton’ on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It was great his Silver Spoons co-star, Ricky Schroeder, showed his support in the audience.

The one who surprised me the most was Randy Couture. Who knew the wrestler could be so graceful? He’s my dark horse pick. Even though they have no shot in hell to win the mirrorball, both Tommy Chong and Betsey Johnson made me smile. They’re both so adorable and gave better-than-expected performances given their age. Well done. Hopefully, Johnson survives this week despite having the lowest score of the night.

Along with the aforementioned, I’m also rooting for Jonathan Bennett, Lea Thompson and Janel Parrish to do well.

Personally, I hope LoLo Jones gets the axe. She had resting bitch face the entire night after messing up her dance. In all seriousness, she was a flat out BITCH which is a shame because I like her pro, new-to-the-show Keo Motsepe. Check out her misstep below, along with all the other performances.

wendy-williams-eats-crow

She’s not the only one who thought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s marriage wouldn’t last a couple months, but Wendy Williams is willing to admit she was wrong. “I’m a woman of my word,” she declares.

The daytime talk show host bet Kimye’s marriage wouldn’t last 72 days. On the sixth season premiere of her chatfest, Williams honored her lost bet by eating crow. Literally. Anything for ratings, right? To be fair, everyone is talking about this and not the much-hyped new panel over at The View. I guess it worked.

Wendy invited some chef to make the bird a bit more edible. He whipped up crow gumbo, which in all honestly, looked pretty delicious. Kinda not fair. Even though she grimaces taking the first bite, Williams admits it’s not that bad. Watch all the action below.

Who knew Allison Janney was such a bad ass bitch? The 54-year-old has often been recognized for her superb acting skills but clearly there is more to this woman than meets the eye. The Masters of Sex actress proved she’s also a masterful obstacle runner as well.

Janney along with Mom co-star Anna Faris attempted a version of the American Ninja Warrior course on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The NBC show’s hosts, Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, were also on hand to add some authenticity.

I’m pretty sure the apparatuses weren’t regulation but Allison’s accomplishment wasn’t any less impressive. The 54-year-old schooled her much younger co-star big time. Watch Janney channel her inner Kacy Catanzaro below.

jessica-lange-ahs-freak-show

Earlier this week, FX debuted a teaser trailer featuring Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and crew as the characters they’re playing on American Horror Story: Freak Show. In a whackload of pictures given to Entertainment Weekly, the network gives a closer look at Lange’s crew of carnival performers for Season 4.

One of the most interesting is Pepper. Loyal viewers of AHS will recognize the character played by Naomi Grossman during the second season of AHS, Asylum. It’s the first time in the show’s history that Ryan Murphy is bringing back a character from a previous installment. Here’s his explanation on how Pepper fits in with this year’s story.

“What Elsa (Jessica Lange) has done for 20 years is she goes around to hospitals and jails and rescues these ‘freak’ circus performers who are going to be shipped away to asylums and she signs the waivers and she becomes their guardians,” he reveals. Since the next season takes place in 1952, or 12 years before the events of “Asylum”, “Freak Show” is “sort of like what happened to Pepper before she went to the asylum.”

Check out Pepper hanging out with the real-life world’s smallest living woman, Jyoti Amge, below, along with a slew of other promo and still images. American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres October 8, 2014 on FX.

HBO Rejects Ryan Murphy’s Lesbian Drama

Believe it or not, someone said ‘no’ to Ryan Murphy. Even more shocking, it’s HBO. Definitely surprising given their recent successful and critically-acclaimed collaboration with The Normal Heart. The network revealed it opted out of Murphy’s sexually-charged drama, Open.

“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter’s sources, HBO wanted to tweak the drama, but Murphy didn’t want to change the pilot. Open was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

Cecily Strong Replaced As SNL Weekend Update Anchor

After two years co-anchoring Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, Cecily Strong has been ousted. She will, however, remain as a regular cast member.

The 30-year-old joined Seth Meyers at the famed desk during the 38th Season and sat alongside Colin Jost last season. It appears, the big boss wasn’t happy with their chemistry or lack thereof. In a rather surprising move, Strong is the one being replaced and not newbie Jost.

“It struggled to find an identity last season… because what had come before had been pretty brilliant,” Lorne added. “This is about a new era, what feels appropriate for now. That’s why we did a lot of combinations and tests, and this is kind of where we came out.”
