Fresh off her long-overdue apology from the Miss America organization, Vanessa Williams has booked a new gig. The Ugly Betty alum joins The Good Wife on a recurring basis for Season 7.

According to the CBS press release, she’ll play Courtney Boalt, “an extremely successful, self-made businesswoman, who is potentially interested in backing Peter Florrick’s (Chris Noth) campaign for president. In the process, she meets Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), sparking a mutual attraction”

“There are very few names you can put side-by-side that make you laugh,” said executive producers Robert and Michelle King in a statement. “Alan Cumming and Vanessa Williams are at the top of that list. We couldn’t be more excited.”

The Good Wife returns to CBS on Sunday, October 4. Excited to see Williams join the cast? Weigh in below.

Ryan Murphy’s new horror anthology, Scream Queens, premieres on FOX tonight. From the looks of it, this will be one fun campy ride that will no doubt be the watercooler guilty pleasure of the season. Who’s excited? I certainly am and already plan on eating a bucket of KFC while taking in every juicy minute of the two-hour premiere.

Emma Roberts and her minions, aka the Chanels, sat down recently with Vanity Fair to critique iconic screams in movie history. Everything from Janet Leigh’s shower scene in Psycho to Drew Barrymore in Scream was shown. Even a couple of clips featuring men are included in the bunch.

Roberts, Abigail Breslin and Ariana Grande are amusing enough but it’s Billie Lourd who cracked me up the most. I think she might be the scene-stealer of the show. Check out the clip below. Be sure to weigh in if you also get the vibe that Breslin was slightly annoyed by Grande.

2015 Primetime Emmys Yields Smallest Audience Ever

Game of Thrones set a record for most wins for a series in a single year when it scored 12 Emmy Awards, including Best Drama for the first time. Viola Davis became the first African-American woman to snag Best Actress for a drama. Uzo Aduba also set a record for becoming the first woman to win both a drama and comedy award for the same role — an honor previously held only by the actor Ed Asner. Jon Hamm finally snagged a Best Actor statue after several nominations for his portrayal of Don Drapper on Mad Men.

Despite the night’s historic events, and Tracy Morgan’s triumphant Emmy return, the telecast scored it’s smallest audience to date. The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards drew 11.9 million total viewers and a 3.6 demo rating, down 24 and 16 percent from last year’s numbers and just landing beneath the smallest audience previously held by the 2008 ceremony. Remember that one hosted by reality television hosts?

While, I admit the Andy Samberg-hosted telecast wasn’t the most entertaining, it wasn’t a trainwreck either. Did you watch last night’s telecast? What was your favorite and least favorite moment? For me, the highlights were Viola Davis‘ epic speech, Veeps Anna Chlumsky going nutballs excited anytime someone won from her show and Samberg’s opening monologue. The least favorite was the entire middle hour. I literally dozed off a couple of times. Weigh in below.

I haven’t checked out Starz’s Black Sails yet, but maybe I should. The adventure series has some eye candy that can definitely keep me entertained.

Toby Stephens (Captain Flint), Luke Arnold (John Silver) and Tom Hopper (Billy Bones) reveal to the October 2015 issue of Men’s Health South Africa that they endured a six-week boot camp to get them into shape for the show. The results certainly speak for themselves. Check out their ripped physiques below.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson doesn’t debut until February 2016, but FX has already released the first teaser for the 10-episode event series. Though the new Ryan Murphy anthology boasts a star-studded cast, only Cuba Gooding Jr, Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance and John Travolta are featured. Correction. Their voices are.

Dialogue from each actor is heard while black-and-white typeface appear on the screen. “I like to win. This case is a loser,” declares Vance as defense attorney Johnny Cochran in the clip. Paulson plays prosecutor Marcia Clark while Travolta and Gooding Jr take on Robert Shapiro and OJ Simpson respectively.

The series is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson, which, according to FX, “explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.” Check out the teaser below.

As much as I love Ryan Murphy and look forward to sampling Scream Queens, the new show I’m most excited to check out is Quantico on ABC. The first eight minutes of the pilot have leaked online and after watching it, I’m already hooked.

Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra stars in the drama about a diverse group of recruits at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted. The catch is, one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

Joining Priyanka on the show are Johanna Braddy (Unreal), Jake McLaughlin (Believe), Josh Hopkins (Cougar Town), Jacob Artist (Glee), Rick Cosnett (The Flash), Yasmine Al Masri (Crossbones) and Brian J. Smith (Sense8). Quantico premieres on ABC on September 27, 2015. Watch the clip below.
