The first two days of the new television season haven’t been kind to FOX so far. Both Monday and Tuesday nights yielded less-than-awesome ratings. Thankfully, Empire returns to the network tonight. Fingers crossed it doesn’t suffer the dreaded sophomore slump.

Jimmy Fallon is one of many that are excited about the hip-hop drama’s return. The late night talk show paid tribute to the show with a hilarious parody titled “Jimpire.” Naturally, Fallon stepped into Terrence Howard’s footsteps, delivering a spot-on Luscious Lyon impression. Equally as awesome was Steve Higgins who did a mean Cookie Lyon.

As great as Fallon and Higgins’ impersonations were, nothing can beat the originals. Cue Taraji P. Henson and Howard who popped in to join in on the fun. Donald Trump also gave a surprise cameo. I don’t agree with his politics, but I admit he made me laugh. Never thought in a million years that I’d see The Donald say ‘boo boo kitty.’ Check out the spoof below.

Scream Queens was poised to open big given its star-studded cast, slick ad campaign and strong tracking numbers. However, Ryan Murphy’s latest offering sorta stumbled out of the gate. It only attracted 4 million viewers with a 1.7 rating in the coveted demo. Meanwhile, fellow newcomers ABC’s The Muppets and CBS’ Limitless notched 8.9 million (2.8 rating) and 9.8 million (1.8) respectively.

There is some silver lining to Scream Queens‘ premiere though. The ratings throughout the two hour premiere remained steady, which means those who tuned in, stayed tuned in. I’m also certain, the FOX comedy horror will skyrocket when DVR playback is factored in.

Murphy has promised a death in every episode of this season. What the producer needs to promise is guaranteed shirtless male eye candy. Not that the premiere didn’t have its fair share. Glen Powell and Diego Boneta bared their chest, but it was Nick Jonas who stole the show. From his snuggling antics and shirtless workout, his gay character took the spotlight.

Check out that montage below, along with my quick thoughts on the show. Minor spoilers ahead for those who haven’t seen the episode.

We’re heading into the final stretch from the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel. Apparently, this season is as good as the fantastic first one. Whether it’s just the cast blowing smoke up viewers’ asses or not, in just two weeks, we’ll find out. I can’t wait. I guarantee, it’ll at least be better than the abysmal Freak Show season.

The network just unveiled new promo artwork for the FX anthology. Dressed up as their characters, the main cast pose on the luxurious staircase of the Hotel Cortez- Sarah Paulson as Hypodermic Sally, Angela Basset as Ramona Royale, Kathy Bates as Iris, Matt Bomer as Donovan, Wes Bentley as Detective John Lowe, Evan Peters as Mr. James March, Denis O’Hare as Liz Taylor, Finn Wittrock as Tristan Duffy, Chloë Sevigny as Alex Lowe, Cheyenne Jackson as Will Drake, Max Greenfield as drug junkie Gabriel, Mare Winnigham as the laundress of the Hotel Cortez and Lady Gaga as The Countess Elizabeth.

Not shown, but also appearing on the season are Lily Rabe as serial killer Aileen Wuornos, Darren Criss as a Silver Lake hipster, Naomi Campbell as a Vogue editor named Claudia and Emma Roberts in an undisclosed role. Check out the full artwork below.

Let the 2015-16 season officially commence. NBC’s Blindspot, FOX’s Minority Report and CBS’ Life In Pieces all made their debuts last night. I checked out both Blindspot and Minority Report but ignored the CBS comedy. FOX’s offering I enjoyed more than Blindspot but it seems like I was in the minority.

NBC’s mystery thriller stormed out of the gate in a big way, generating 10.6 million viewers and a 3.1 rating among adults 18–49, easily beating all of its 10 p.m. rivals. I’m sure the marketing of a naked tattooed Jamie Alexander and The Voice lead-in helped bolster those numbers. Blindspot was down slightly from The Blacklist’s premiere last year, but fared better than Katherine Heigl’s State Of Affairs. Both of which aired in the same time slot.

Vanessa Williams Joins The Good Wife

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.
