After their Maya Rudolph variety show special experiment yielded solid ratings, NBC has decided to permanently resurrect the format. The network announced it ordered a new primetime variety series based on the hugely popular U.K. format Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. Mr. song and dance himself, Neil Patrick Harris will host the variety show.

As I watched the show, I couldn’t stop smiling. Now that I’ve seen many seasons, my face hurts. It’s a game changer,” said Harris in a press release. “Nothing like this has been done before, and its unique structure fits right into my random skill set. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and have some fun!”

It’s no secret Neil Patrick was interested in starring in a variety show. He expressed his desire to do one when he revealed last year, he turned down hosting gigs for both of CBS’ late night talk shows.

Now that all the data from the series premiere of The Flash have been tabulated, it’s official… The CW has a hit on their hands. The comic book television adaptation sped past the competition big time.

Ratings for the Arrow spin-off rises to 6.8 million total viewers after final Live + 7 Day Nielsen ratings data have been factored in. It becomes the CW’s most watched telecast of any series in the history of the network since its September 2006 launch. Congrats to executive producer Greg Berlanti, actor Grant Gustin and the entire cast.

taylor-kitsch-true-detective

Much like Colin Farrell did, Taylor Kitsch confirms his own involvement with True Detective Season 2 via an interview and not through a press release penned by television execs. The 33-year-old let the cat out of the proverbial bag to Ad Week.

I’m not exactly sure why HBO didn’t confirm Kitsch’s addition when they announced Vince Vaughan’s casting. Regardless, Taylor is in. I wonder when the studio will talk Rachel McAdams. She’s been long-rumored to play the third detective. In the meantime, check out some photos snapped by Miller Mobley below for Taylor’s interview in Ad Week.

On Joining True Detective

“Yeah, I’m really excited. I’ve just been prepping. It’s been almost a full year since I’ve been on camera, so I’m itching, man. I’m overdue. You’ve just got to grind it out. …”

iggy-azalea-snl-performance

I-G-G-Y brought her Australian swagger to Studio 8H this weekend, wowing audiences with two solid back-to-back performances. The 24-year-old rapper didn’t embarrass herself in her Saturday Night Live debut.

If Azalea had any nerves, she certainly didn’t let them affect her. Sadly, the same can’t be said about Danish singer MØ. The talented yet relatively unknown singer appeared/disappeared numerous times during “Beg For It.” Iggy somewhat addressed it afterward by writing, “MO congratulations on your first television! (It only gets easier!)” on her Instagram profile.

Rita Ora made a surprise appearance during the “Fancy” and “Black Widow” medley. Too bad Charli XCX didn’t tag along as well. It wasn’t the same with the background vocalists singing the hook of “Fancy.” Check out both performances below and weigh in afterward.

The First Canceled Show Of The Season Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

fresh-prince-of-mtv-todrick-hall

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!!!
