In: Donovan, TV Shows
limitless-show-canceled

When the big broadcast networks present their new schedules at the annual upfronts, typically every current airing series knows if they’ve received a renewal or cancellation. Not so for Limitless.

The freshman series starring Jake McDormand and Jennifer Carpenter was in a state of limbo. Even after CBS’ presentation, the show’s fate was still up in the air. Finally, all has been revealed. Find out below.

FX Sets End Date For The Americans

The Cold War is thawing over at FX. The network just announced some good news and bad news. Good news is, The Americans has been renewed for Season 5 and Season 6. Bad news is, the espionage drama starring Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell will end in 2018.

“It’s hard to believe we’re heading into the final stretch on The Americans, and we’re so grateful to know we’ll be telling the story to its conclusion,” said showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg in a statement. “The best part of the last four years has been the intensive and fruitful collaboration with all of the people who make this show … We’re looking forward to the final two.”

With two seasons left, producers should have no problem crafting a perfect conclusion to the Jennings family saga. Fingers crossed the critically-acclaimed drama finally gets some Emmy love. It’s almost criminal that the series hasn’t been recognized yet by the Academy. #robbed.

“Through its first four seasons, critics have lauded ‘The Americans’ as one of the best shows on television and, remarkably, a series that keeps getting better every year,” FX original programming president Eric Schrier said (via Variety). “All credit for that achievement goes to everyone who has worked on the show, and especially co-showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, Graham Yost, our brilliant stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Allison Wright, Holly Taylor, Annet Mahendru and the ensemble cast for their incomparable performances every season. We have no doubt that this two-season order will allow Joe and Joel to tell this story to its perfect conclusion. On behalf of our producing partners at Fox 21 Television Studios and Amblin TV, we look forward to a brilliant final act of the Jennings family saga.”

Christina Aguilera was originally supposed to duet with a hologram of Whitney Houston on the Season 10 finale of The Voice. However, Pat Houston, the executor of Houston’s estate, pulled the plug after being dissatisfied with the quality of the hologram.

“We are so appreciative of the opportunity for the Whitney Houston hologram to appear on NBC’s The Voice with a talent pairing as extraordinary as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists. Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect. Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection. After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air. We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless.” – Pat Houston

With the highly-anticipated duet dunzo, producers came up with an alternative plan. Since Ariana Grande was already booked to appear on the finale, it only made sense that these two powerhouse vocalists perform together. After Grande sang her new single, “Into You,” X-Tina strutted out to join Ariana on “Dangerous Woman.”

Overall, it was fine but I’m sure if they had more time to craft a proper duet, it would’ve been phenomenal. I much preferred Aguilera and Lady Gaga’s epic duet on “Do What U Want” a few seasons ago much better. Watch the duet below, and relive Aguilera and Gaga’s insane growl-off.

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-7

July 10!!! Mark your calendar folks. That’s when the ladies from the Garden State return to television after a two year hiatus. It’s about friggin’ time.

After serving an 11-month stint in Danbury Federal Correctional Institution for fraud charges, Teresa Giudice returns home. Naturally, the Bravo cameras were on hand to capture the heartwarming reunion with her family. That restitution isn’t going to pay for itself.

“Its been a while. Things are changing in Jersey,” says Melissa Gorga in the trailer. Ain’t that the truth. After multiple seasons of feuding, Gorga and Giudice are finally on great terms. Just because there’s a detente between the sisters-in-law, that doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be any fighting this season. This is New Jersey after all.

After skipping a season as a full-time Housewife, Jacqueline Laurita returns. At first she’s friendly with Giudice but eventually they find themselves at odds again. However, the twist this time is Melissa and Teresa are a united front against Jacqueline.

Fans will also meet two new Housewives this season- Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania. The latter we’ve seen in previous years since she’s friends with Teresa, Jacqueline and former cast member Caroline Manzo.

Watch the exciting Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 trailer below. After the lackluster seasons of RHONY and newbie RHOD currently airing, I need some classic Housewives action.

When we last left the Orange County ladies, the OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson was on the outs due to her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers’ cancer controversy. Will her castmates forgive and forget, or continue to put her on blast. Based on the trailer, it seems like a bit of both.

Joining the cast for Season 11 is Kelly Dodd, a stay-at-home mom originally from Arizona who recently reconciled with her husband, Michael. According to Bravo, she’s not afraid to speak her mind. Ain’t that the truth. She recently found herself in hot water after a drunken encounter with TMZ. Silly chick told the cameraman she didn’t like black guys.

The Real Housewives of OC return to Bravo on Monday, June 20. Check out the first trailer below which features the ladies traveling to Ireland. Also, that dune buggy accident at the end looks frightening.

BET Throws Shade At Madonna’s Prince Tribute

The second Billboard announced Madonna was paying tribute to Prince, immediately there was backlash. Many felt, Madge wasn’t fit to honor the Purple One. Personally, I was cautiously optimistic that she would deliver.

While it wasn’t a trainwreck, the 57-year-old’s cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U” and “Purple Rain” was a tad underwhelming even with a surprise cameo by Stevie Wonder on the latter. Naturally, social media lit up with people bashing the “Like A Virgin” singer.

BET even got in on the action. The network threw shade at Madonna’s performance by promising a better tribute to the “Let’s Go Crazy” legend at their BET Awards June 26 telecast. Check out their promo below, along with Madonna’s tribute.

Ewan McGregor Set To Star In Fargo Season 3

Billy Bob Thornton headlined the first season, while Patrick Wilson and Kristen Dunst spearheaded the second. For the third outing of the critically-acclaimed drama, Ewan McGregor has been called to pull double duty. The 45-year-old will play brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy. And surprisingly, they’re not twins. Deadline has a description of the siblings. Read below.

“Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, he sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, on the other hand, is more of a cautionary tale. Balding and pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, he has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames Emmit for his misfortunes.” via Deadline

Ewan is the first cast member announced so far. The third season will be set closer to present day than the previous two.

If all the men look like this in the Canary Islands, I’m booking my plane ticket tomorrow. Saulo Sarmiento is pretty fine. Judge David Walliams agrees as well. He gave the sexy stud a ‘yes’ before he even performed. #thirstythirstythirsty

Series 10 of Britain’s Got Talent might just be the sexiest one yet. First you had sculpted gymnasts give an eye-popping audition, and now this. Sarmiento delivers a topless aerial pole act that leaves the judges and audiences electrified. How he wasn’t dizzy after all that spinning is unbelievable. Check out his routine below.
