FOX Officially Resurrects The X-Files

Incessant rumors have been abound for months now and it appears all the chatter was true. FOX officially confirmed they’re resurrecting the landmark sci-fi conspiracy drama, The X-Files.

Even more exciting is the fact original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are on board. Don’t expect a weekly dose though. The network is only bringing it back for a limited six-episode event series which begins production this Summer.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” producer Chris Carter states. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Hopefully, she fares better this time around than her nymphomaniac character, Shelley, in Asylum. Poor girl was tortured and mutilated beyond recognition during the second season of the popular horror anthology.

Chloe Sevigny is the latest to check into American Horror Story: Hotel. She joins previously announced cast members Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson. Sadly, this time around Jessica Lange won’t be participating. She formally announced her exit during the show’s recent PaleyFest panel.

Ryan Murphy broke the news via social media. “Very excited to announce that Chloe Sevigny returns to the AHS family as a series regular on “‘AHS: Hotel,'” he tweeted gleefully.

Excited to see Sevigny back in the franchise? Which other former AHS alum do you want to see return? Sound off below.

Orange Is The New Black’s Emmys Petition Denied

The Emmys recently instituted a new rule change that dictates all hour-long shows will be considered dramas while half-hour shows fall as comedies. However, networks can petition the Academy to have a program be placed in an alternate category.

Orange Is The New Black snagged 12 nominations in the comedy categories last year, winning three. The hit Netflix series will now be officially classified as a drama after having their petition denied by a nine-member panel who watched all episodes of the current season.

It’ll be interesting to see if OITNB can snag any Emmy noms in the drama category. Even more interesting is who’ll fill the void in the comedy ones. Find out below which hour-long shows were approved by Academy.

The Bold and the Beautiful dropped a major bomb on its viewers this week with a shocking plot twist. It revealed that one of its lead characters is transgender. The network claims the long-running soap opera is the only current show on broadcast or cable TV to include a transgender character as part of the regular cast.

Actress Karla Mosley plays fan-favorite Maya Avant who’s romantically linked with Forrester heir Rick (Jacob Young). Her sister recently arrived in town and has been blackmailing her but viewers were left in the dark as to why. This week, her little sister revealed that Maya was once her brother named Myron.

“I didn’t expect daytime to be taking on a story like this,” Mosley said to US Magazine. But after she picked up her jaw from the floor, she’s been researching, consulting GLAAD, and trying to do the story justice.

I one hundred percent agree with Mosley. Had I been a viewer of the show, my jaw would’ve been on the ground as well. Check out the emotional scene between the sisters below.

“”It is about people respecting other people’s differences and their uniqueness. In the end, we all want to be loved, and in order to love someone else you first have to love yourself. If you are transgender, gay, straight, it doesn’t matter. It’s about finding love in life. This is a love story.” – Bradley Bell, B&B’s executive producer & head writer

The inaugural season of Empire finished off with a bang. Not only did the two-hour event drop major bomb after another, its ratings exploded off the charts. The hip-hop FOX drama delivered 16.5 million viewers and a 6.4 rating among adults 18-49.

I knew the series could eventually past the 6.0 rating mark. In fact, it almost reached 7.0 in the 9-10 hour. It narrowly missed at 6.9. Insane.

The Empire Season 1 finale is the highest-rated freshman series finale since Grey’s Anatomy’s debut season in 2005. It also now earns the title as the top-rated TV series in the adult demo airing now, beating The Big Bang Theory.

Speaking of the finale, what was your favorite OMG moment. While I literally gasped when I saw Anika (Grace Gealey) and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) hook up, the highlight of the night was by far, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Anika’s catfight. Poor Boo Boo Kitty and her pearls never saw it coming.

I love how they tussled on the pool table. Great catfights always find the ladies plunging into a swimming pool. When there isn’t one around, a pool table is a perfect stand-in. Relive the scratching and pulling below and find out which other memorable catfight it reminded me of.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the bullying controversy surrounding The X Factor New Zealand. Natalia Kills and her husband Willy Moon faced major backlash after their scathing remarks towards a contestant. Widespread condemnation from viewers, fellow judges and celebrities for their actions dominated social media this week. Not surprisingly, they were fired and the married couple fled the country.

If their intention was to generate press, mission accomplished. While the world now knows their names, sadly, I think they’ve committed career suicide with their antics. Don’t see them ever recovering from this.

With only days til the next live episode, I’m sure producers had a difficult time finding replacements. How many established musicians are immediately available and have several weeks of free time to attend the tapings? Find out who’ll sit on the panel below.

Is every Scream Queens cast member going to get their very own bubblegum teaser? If so, might I suggest Nick Jonas next. I’m very curious about his blowing skills ;)

Wisely, FOX chose to debut the new promo featuring Keke Palmer during Empire‘s season finale. With all those eyeballs watching, the network would be idiots not to. Her clip is pretty much like Emma Roberts but serving less bitchiness and more sassy attitude. Check it out below.

Scream Queens‘ 15-episode first season, which revolves around a college campus rocked by a series of murders, premieres this Fall on FOX. It boasts a star-studded cast which includes Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer and the ultimate ‘scream queen’ Jamie Lee Curtis. Oliver Hudson recently joined the cast to replace Joe Manganiello.

Madonna & Justin Bieber Play Never Have I Ever

It’s Madonna Week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The 56-year-old pop icon is on hand all week long to promote her new album, Rebel Heart, in stores now.

On today’s appearance, the “Living For Love” singer plays Never Have I Ever with newly-roasted Justin Bieber. For the most part, the questions are pretty PG and tame. The most salacious thing they admitted to is hooking up with siblings. Who hasn’t ;)

What I would give to play an actual game with these two with a few drinks consumed, naturally of course. The tea that would be spilled would be epic. Watch Ellen play with Madge and The Biebs below.
