Fans of the ABC 90s cult hit were ecstatic when Showtime revealed their plans to resurrect the series in 2016 for the show’s 25th anniversary. With one of the original stars officially on board, this should put them over the moon.

Kyle MacLachlan is returning to Twin Peaks to reprise his much-loved character Special Agent Dale Cooper. The news was revealed during the network’s Television Critics Association presentation on Monday, Jan. 12. Series creator David Lynch then announced it via Twitter to the delight of everyone who enjoyed the show’s first run.

CBS and The CW were in generous moods this week. Both gave early renewals to several shows on their respective schedules.

Freshman shows on the eye network were especially lucky. Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans, and Madam Secretary all received sophomore seasons. Among the bunch, NCIS: NO has the biggest ratings with 18.1 million on average, earning the distinction as the season’s most-watched new drama. Madam Secretary and Scorpion generate 14.9 million and 14.5 million respectively.

“These freshman dramas have each made a big impact on key nights of the week,” CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler said. “Creatively distinctive, the series are backed by strong showrunners with amazingly talented casts, and have resonated with a big, broad audience.”

Though not officially renewed, Tassler revealed that Stalker, also a new show, is still in consideration for another season. Among CBS’ new offerings, this is the one I watch so hopefully it gets a second year. Find out which shows on CBS’ sister network received good news.

72nd Golden Globes: Complete Winners List

2015-golden-globes-winners

The Tina Fey/Amy Poehler hosting trilogy came to an end Sunday night. The hilarious duo ended their reign by presiding over another memorable show.

Just like two years ago, the four major broadcast networks walked away with nothing. HBO which is normally a big winner only snagged one award. FX, Showtime and Amazon lead the way with two awards apiece. The latter’s Transparent became the first streaming series to win a major series prize- comedy series, along with best actor for Jeffrey Tambor.

The CW scored its first Golden Globe ever, winning TV comedy actress for Jane the Virgin. It’s star, Gina Rodriguez, is the eighth person in the last 11 years to win the category for the first season.

The night saw several upsets including Showtime’s The Affair winning for Best Drama Series, How To Train Your Dragon 2 besting the popular Lego Movie and much more. It definitely made it a difficult night to predict winners. I didn’t do very well at our viewing party and only scored 10/25. One of my worst showing in years.

Some of the night’s other big winners were Amy Adams, Matt Bomer, Kevin Spacey, Michael Keaton and Julianne Moore. Check out all the winners below.

Who’d You Rather: The Men Of Looking

Looking got off to a slow start but definitely found its stride midway through its first season. Clearly viewers agreed as well. The drama’s week-to-week numbers grew, prompting the network to renew it. Anyone else extremely excited to see the boys of the Castro back on television? I have a feeling the series will be even better for its second lap.

With the HBO show returning tonight for its sophomore season, I thought it was the perfect time to pit the photogenic and extremely sexy cast against each other again in my Who’d You Rather battle which I posted last year.

I’ve limited the poll only to series regulars Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez and Murray Barlett and recently promoted cast members Russell Tovey and Raul Castillo. If I were to include guest stars, T.J. Linnard who played the escort CJ would win hands down. WOOF!!! Glad I got that off my chest ;) Check out my rankings below and be sure to cast your votes in the poll.

matt-bomer-monty-clift

It’s been long-rumored and now it’s official. Matt Bomer will play Montgomery Clift in the upcoming HBO biopic titled Monty Clift. If anyone can play the legendary Hollywood actor it’s Bomer. Both have the same stunning matinee good looks.

Clift was best known for his role in From Here To Eternity and his relationship with his A Place in the Sun co-star Elizabeth Taylor. During his hey day, Clift rivaled Marlon Brando and James Dean as one of Hollywood’s biggest male stars. Montgomery was one of the first actors to incorporate method acting and to refuse to sign a studio contract which was popular at the time.

“To see the kind of intense vulnerability and realism that he brought to his work at a time when that was not the style—it’s profound,” Bomer said in an interview last year. “He knew everything he was feeling inside—or if he didn’t, you wondered, why was he feeling that when the scene was this? To get to portray someone who was so formative to me as an artist would be terrifying and daunting and thrilling.”

His life was far from harmonious though. He battled alcohol and drug addiction which were amplified following a devastating car accident that left him with a broken nose and partially paralyzed face.

With Bomer on board, question is now who’ll play Elizabeth Taylor? Let’s hope it’s not Lindsay Lohan. Remember her much-maligned performance in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick. That was horrendous. Check out a shirtless pic of Clift during his prime below. Holy hottie!!!

empire-nielsen-ratings

Did you watch FOX’s highly-anticipated hip-hop Dynasty-like soap opera last night? If you did, you weren’t alone. Empire premiered to 9.8 million viewers and a 3.7 rating among adults 18-49, giving the network the highest-rated series debut in three years.

Empire also ties ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder as the highest-rated new show premiere this season. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the Lee Daniels-produced drama beat ABC’s Modern Family head-to-head in the coveted demo and built on it’s American Idol premiere by 19 percent.

Speaking of Idol, the veteran show saw it’s lowest season premiere in its 15-year history. As an avid fan and supporter of the singing competition, I didn’t even watch it last night. Could this be it’s last year?

What a difference a new year makes. Last Fall, FOX saw most of its new offerings like Red Band Society, Gracepoint, Mulaney and Utopia fizzle. Gotham, it’s lone standout, has managed to perform well and stabilize. Things appear to be looking up with Empire on deck.

Hopefully, Empire can keep the momentum if not build on it. I absolutely loved it. Taraji P. Henson is EVERYTHING on it. She looks like she’s having so much fun playing the part of Cookie.

Other standouts include Gabourey Sidibe and the Frank Ocean-like gay character Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett. If you missed his “Good Enough” performance, you have to check it out. #moving

With Courtney Love, Macy Gray and the stunning Naomi Campbell coming on board in future episodes, Empire is only going to get better. Check out a few performances from last night’s premiere below. Be sure to weigh in on the show if you watched it.

John Travolta Lawyers Up For American Crime Story

Welcome back Kotter!!! Or should I say John Travolta. The 60-year-old actor books his first series regular TV role since his breakout turn in the classic 1975-1979 sitcom Welcome, Back, Kotter.

Travolta just booked a gig on American Crime Story. He’ll play defense attorney Robert Shapiro on FX’s new anthology miniseries. He’ll also serve as a producer on the project.

The 10 episode miniseries, airing on FX, tells the story of the infamous OJ Simpson murder trial from the perspective of the lawyers involved. It’s based on Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

He’ll join David Schwimmer, who plays another Simpson attorney, Robert Kardashian, and Cuba Gooding Jr and Sarah Paulson who’ll take on Simpson and prosecutor Marcia Clark respectively. All that’s missing from Murphy’s own version of the ‘dream team’ is who’ll play Johnnie Cochran. Have any suggestions?

What do you think of Travolta’s return to television? Weigh in below.

The Bachelor: Who Are The Ten Hottest Bachelors?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

January is here and you know what that means. It’s time for ABC’s guilty pleasure dating show to return. That’s right, I’m talking about The Bachelor. Yup, I’m a glutton for punishment and enjoy this often cringe-worthy reality show. For me, it’s not so much about being a hopeless romantic and hoping true love is found. But rather, it’s the “journey” that’s exciting to watch. I’m not talking about the over-the-top dates either, but mostly the seemingly sane women go crazy. What possesses a woman to cry their eyes out over a guy they’ve known for just a couple of days and in some instances a couple of hours, is beyond me. It’s so silly, yet so riveting to watch.

While most of the guys aren’t worth shedding a tear for, there are a few that are definitely worth getting involved in a catfight over. I’ve gone through all nineteen seasons (can you believe there have been that many) and ranked the Top 10 Hottest Bachelors to ever give out roses on the ABC show. I will admit, I haven’t watched all the seasons but watched my fair share.

Check out my updated rankings below and see if you agree with my choices. You might be surprised on a couple of omissions. Even though Juan Pablo proved to be a douche, I kept him around but lowered him on the list. As for our new Bachelor Chris Soules… I purposely kept him off until his tenure is over. I don’t want another Juan Pablo mishap on my watch ;)
