FOX Gives New Girl Season 5 Renewal

In: Donovan, TV Shows

There were rumblings that FOX was pulling the plug on New Girl due to dwindling ratings. Personally, I didn’t see the network canceling it with the comedy so close to the magical 100-episode mark. It’s all about syndication baby. As I expected, FOX gives the Zooey Deschanel sitcom a fifth season renewal.

“Four seasons in, New Girl continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television,” said Fox Entertainment President David Madden. “The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn’t be more proud of Liz, Brett, Dave and the entire New Girl team.”

There is some sad news though for New Girl fans. Damon Wayans Jr. who starred in the pilot and returned in Season is jumping ship. To fill the void, SNL‘s Taran Killam and Sleepy Hollow alum John Cho are being brought in.

Production has already begun on the new season mostly in part to work around Deschanel’s pregnancy. The show isn’t planning on incorporating her baby bump into the show. Excited that New Girl is coming back? Weigh in below.

It was between The Music Man and The Wiz and it appears the latter won. The re-imagining of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz featuring an all-black cast will be NBC’s next live musical production. With Empire nabbing killer ratings, it’s a wise choice for the peacock network to go with a music book filled with R&B flair. For the first time ever, producers will team up with Cirque du Soleil.

“We love this yearly tradition and we’re more excited than ever to not only bring another Broadway musical to America’s living rooms, but also see it land on Broadway as well,” said NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt. “Cirque’s incredible imagination will help bring the fantasy world of Oz vividly to life and give this great show a modern spin on the age-old story we all love.”

Not only is The Wiz coming to television this holiday season, it’s also headed to Broadway for a revival production scheduled to debut during the 2016-17 season. Once again, Smash showrunners and exiting Oscar producers Craig Zaden and Neil Meron will executive produce the show. Harvey Fierstein will contribute new material to the original Broadway book by William F. Brown.

When they were BFFs, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak provided some of the most hilarious moments on the first few seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Their fights were equally as riveting and epic. There was a moment in time when the two couldn’t even be in the same room together. However, the two buried the hatchet a couple of seasons ago.

Personally, I believe Leakes was open to reconciling once she started to achieve success outside the Housewives franchise. I like NeNe but she doesn’t do well when others do better than her. Now that she sorta has the upper hand with Kim and is enemy No. 1 on RHOA, I can see why she agreed to this.

Bravo announced a new spinoff titled NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches which follows the ladies driving from ATL to LAX. Hopefully, this ends up better than their last road trip. Remember when the two almost came to physical blows on a bus headed to Miami?

“Atlanta’s ‘most driven’ housewives…drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure,” the network said in a statement. “The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean they won’t occasionally drive each other crazy.”

The network also revealed other programs coming in the future. Find out what new and returning shows are on deck.

Former soccer pro and bonafide hottie David Beckham shares an exclusive sneak peek of his new underwear line with James Corden. Just don’t look for it on shelves any time soon though. The faux ad, airing on tonight’s episode of The Late Late Show, is only a spoof, poking fun at Beckham’s real-life undie commercials

The two spout lines back and forth describing their new product. Beckham declares they make him feel “secure,” “free” and “alive.” Meanwhile, Corden uses descriptive words such as “supported,” “cradled” and “sexually aroused.” Watch Corden flaunt his assets alongside Beckham in the video below.

Earlier this year, Jon Stewart announced his exit from The Daily Show after sitting behind the desk for 17 years. After several names were tossed around as possible replacements, one has been picked.

Trevor Noah has been officially named as Stewart’s successor. The 31-year-old comedian is a relatively new correspondent to the show, having only appeared three times. He has, though, hosted previously- a late-night talk show in his native country, South Africa. No word on when Stewart will sign off or when Noah takes over the desk has been revealed.

“Trevor Noah is an enormous talent. He has an insightful and unique point of view, and most importantly, is wickedly funny” – Comedy Central’s president Michele Ganeless

Admit it, you’re watching The Royals on E!. I’m not ashamed to say its my new guilty pleasure. It’s Gossip Girl meets One Tree Hill but with conniving and slutty monarchs. The blond heir played by William Moseley is twinky deliciousness.

The network’s risk into scripted programming is paying off. It’s first offering did well during its premiere and showed growth during it’s second outing. No doubt in part to promotional stunts like this.

Dancers dressed as royal guards targeted unsuspecting Londoners with a cheeky routine to promote the UK premiere of new drama. After the routine, they pulled off their tearaway pants to reveal their Union Jack undies. Check out the flash mob routine below. Be sure to catch an all new episode of The Royals tonight.

While the idea of turning the beloved animated Bambi into a live-action film seems absolutely ridiculous, it’s actually not that far-fetched. At Disney’s current pace of producing live-action versions of their classics, this could become a reality in a few years. Though, it’ll have a hard time living up to this epic Saturday Night Live treatment.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson transforms everyone’s favorite deer into a gun-slinging bad ass vigilante. Along with his furry friends, he bursts into a hunting lodge and open fires on hunters who kill for sport.

Cecily Strong plays Michelle Rodriguez, while Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam imitate Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel in the hilarious sketch. Find out which furry characters they play below.
