alanis-morissette-ironic-update

Alanis Morissette is everywhere these days celebrating the 20th anniversary her quintessential third studio album, Jagged Little Pill. On the heels of her appearance on The Tonight Show, where she dressed up as a giant chicken to cluck one of her hit tracks, comes this adorable gem.

The 41-year-old singer performed her 1995 hit, “Ironic” (my favorite), on The Late Late Show, but with updated lyrics. With James Corden’s brilliant assistance, the classic tune now gives nods to modern distractions including Tinder, Netflix, Facebook and Uber.

However, my favorite moment is when they address the biggest criticism Alanis received when she first released the song. “It’s singing ironic, but there are no ironies,” they sing in harmony. Check out the very amusing bit below.

shonda-rhimes-character

For her latest memoir, Year Of Yes, Shonda Rhimes chronicles her year-long project in which she said “yes” to everything including an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and to deliver the commencement address at her alma mater Dartmouth College to name a few. The one major exception that she said “no” to was overeating. The prolific television producer lost 127 lbs after an incident on an airplane when she couldn’t buckle her seat belt.

Among the other topics Rhimes shares in the book is the fact she’s very insecure and suffers form social anxiety and stage fright. Definitely surprising given her domination of ABC’s Thursday night schedule.

However, the biggest reveal she shares is which character from her hit Shondaland shows serves as her alter ego. While the style of writing of her book seems to indicate it’s Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy, it’s actually someone else who serves as “the walking validation of her dreams.”

NBC Renews Blindspot For Season 2

In: Donovan, TV Shows
blindspot-season-2

Blindspot was the first among the freshman class to receive a full season order. Just two months after its series premiere, the NBC drama has already inked (hehe) a second season renewal. Also, becoming the first show of the season to do so. Pretty impressive.

“We are over the moon with the success of Blindspot, and want to thank our producers and amazing cast for creating one of the most riveting shows on television. Jaimie and Sullivan [Stapleton] have done an amazing job of ratcheting up the tension each week in trying to unravel the mystery of Jane’s tattoos,” said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. “We literally can’t wait to see what the second season will bring.”

The Jamie Alexander-show debuted impressively with 10.6 million viewers and a 3.1 rating among 18-49. When DVR playback was factored in, the numbers ballooned to 16.59 million viewers and a 4.6 rating.

Do you watch the Greg Berlanti-produced series? Glad that it’s getting a sophomore season? Weigh in below.

shades-of-blue-tv-trailer

“Between good cop and bad cop there are Shades of Blue,” the NBC drama teases. Jennifer Lopez not only headlines Shades of Blue but also serves as an executive producer. And based on the first full trailer, Lopez’s cop character is one shady, shady, shady lady. You get the sense she’s a dirty cop.

Shades of Blue follows New York detective and single mother Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) as she is forced to work with the FBI’s anti-corruption task force while dealing with her own financial problems. Ray Liotta and Drea de Matteo also star in the police series.

With Lopez appearing in the final season of American Idol on FOX and Shades of Blue on NBC, avoiding J. Lo on the small screen will prove near impossible in 2016. The mid-season show makes its premiere on January 7, taking over the slot currently occupied by the Wesley Snipes series, The Player. Check out the trailer below.

the-greatest-american-hero

The network previously tried to develop a revival of The Greatest American Hero last year but to no avail. “Believe It or Not” (to quote the original theme song), FOX is attempting to reboot the 80s cult classic one more time. Instead of hourly episodes, the new version will take on a single-camera comedy format.

The Greatest American Hero starring William Katt as the titular character ran for three seasons on ABC. The series chronicled his adventures after a group of aliens gave him a red suit that granted him superhuman abilities.

Arguably, the most successful thing about the original series was its memorable theme song. The Joey Scarbury-sung song became a huge hit. It spent 18 weeks in the Top 40, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Can you imagine a theme song from any show in recent memory capable of doing the same feat? They don’t make theme songs like they used to. If you can’t recall the classic track, check it out below.

the-real-housewives-new-franchise

Tired of the Georgia peaches? Annoyed with the Big Apple bitches? Fed up with the cancer police of The OC? Well, there might be a new domestic installment of The Real Housewives franchise coming.

Andy Cohen recently sat down with Amy Phillips for her Sirius XM radio show, Reality Checked. When asked about a new location, the 47-year-old didn’t reveal exactly where, but cryptically answered, it was coming, “sooner than you think.”

Personally, I’d rather Bravo order another season of Miami. Those spicy ladies of Florida are underrated. They be cray, but in a good way. Check out Cohen’s interview below. Find out what he has to say about the international editions as well, specifically The Real Housewives of Melbourne.

the-girlfriend-experience-starz

Steven Soderbergh previously delved into the world of high-end escorts for his 2009 indie experimental film, The Girlfriend Experience. The 52-year-old acclaimed director revisits the topic for his new Starz series with the same name.

While his film starred then-active adult film actress Sasha Grey, his new leading lady is none other than Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough. She portrays a University of Chicago law student named Christine Reade who’s also an intern at a prestigious law firm. When a friend introduces her to the world of transactional relationships, she’s intrigued and attracted to the easy money. Naturally, of course.

The 13-episode drama will premiere on the network in 2016. Since Soderbergh is involved, I expect quality. His previous forays dealing with sex have yielded positive results. Sex, Lies, and Videotape and Magic Mike anyone? Check out the trailer below.

american-crime-story-bronco

It’s the infamous Bronco chase that captivated viewers twenty-one years ago. Who could forget that indelible image of OJ Simpson driving down a Los Angeles freeway as dozens of police cars followed him from a distance? It truly was riveting.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson promises to bring viewers inside that white vehicle during the tense chase as Simpson held a gun to his head. “You saw the Bronco,” the brief clip reads. “But you weren’t in the Bronco.”

The ten-episode miniseries featuring an all-star cast including Cuba Gooding Jr, John Travolta, Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Selma Blair and Connie Britton premieres February 2016 on FX. Check out the Bronco teaser below along with another new clip featuring OJ writing his suicide letter. I can’t wait for the Ryan Murphy series to premiere.
