NBC just added a very “Dangerous Woman” to its annual live musical production.

Ariana Grande is the latest big name to participate in Hairspray Live! She joins previously announced cast members Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Hudson, Harvey Fierstein, Martin Short, Derek Hough and newcomer Maddie Baillio.

I AM NOWWW A CHECKERBOARD CHICK,” tweeted Grande. The 23-year-old songbird will play Penny, who was played by Amanda Bynes in the 2007 musical film. No disrespect to Bynes, but Ariana is absolutely going to slay it on December 7. Her vocals are far superior. Don’t you agree? Weigh in below.

john-cho-star-trek-gay

The latest Star Trek installment is boldly going where no other film from the franchise has gone before. For the first time, one of the lead characters will be revealed as gay. John Cho, who plays Hikaru Sulu, broke the news while promoting Star Trek Beyond in Australia.

“I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out it, which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations,” said Cho to The Herald Sun.

ABC Cancels Uncle Buck

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Not that I’ve watched an episode of Uncle Buck, but I’m a little surprised by the news. I thought the Mike Epps sitcom was performing solidly.

ABC’s adaptation of the 1989 feature film had a promising start. The alphabet network issued a press release touting ratings for the series, which averaged 3.8 million total viewers in Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. That was an 81% lift from ABC’s performance in the same time period over the course of the same four weeks a year ago. Uncle Buck also averaged a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo, more than double ABC’s average from a year earlier. When DVR playback was factored in, it reached a robust 5.2 million total viewers for its premiere.

Sadly though, ratings fizzled and viewer feedback wasn’t kind. Still, I can’t see the show costing ABC too much to produce. Clearly, the powers-that-be just weren’t fans of the comedy.

Did you watch the show? Will you miss it? Sound off below.

fx-american-horror-story-s6

Usually at this point, the theme of the upcoming American Horror Story season has been revealed. Hell, even a couple of teasers have dropped. But not this year.

Ryan Murphy has been extremely tight-lipped about Season 6. Besides teasing it will involve “elements” of children, the shroud of secrecy has been frustrating to say the least. He did add, “If you look at horror tropes, the innocence of children, that sort of wide-eyed entryway into some world, is always very dramatic and satisfying.” Should we expect an orphanage setting then 😉

Whatever the theme, one thing we know for certain is the anthology series returns for its sixth run on Wednesday, Sept. 14. Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson and Angela Bassett have all stated they are returning in some capacity.

No matter where you are in the United States, starting Monday July 4, your neck of the woods is going to get a little Jersey-fied. Bravo created an exclusive set of Snapchat geofilters to promote the Season 7 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

For instance, if you’re in South Dakota, the founding fathers will be replaced with the mugs of Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Guidice on Mt. Rushmore. From coast to coast, memorable landmarks will feature the ladies from the Garden State. All the filters will be available until July 10 when RHONJ returns to Bravo.

Check out a few samples below, along with the full list of areas getting a Jersey treatment.

Greatest Hits is an ABC summer series that feature artists of today and yesterday performing the defining hits of the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. During the premiere episode last night, Jason Derulo did Michael Jackson proud with his cover of “Human Nature.” On the July 28th episode, Fifth Harmony pays tribute to one of the greatest groups during the late 90s and early 00s, Destiny’s Child.

The X Factor alums cover four of DC’s greatest hits. In a preview, obtained by Buzzfeed, we see the girls slay “Say My Name” and “Independent Woman, Pt. 1.” The full medley also includes renditions of “Survivor” and “Bootylicious.”

This isn’t the first time 5H has covered Destiny’s Child. Just last year, they did a stripped down version of “Independent Woman, Pt. 1″ for Billboard’s Women In Music event. Check out their latest tribute below, along with Derulo’s MJ homage.

vanessa-lachey-first-wives-club

Vanessa Lachey in real life isn’t a first wife. That honor goes to Jessica Simpson who married Nick Lachey first. However, for TV Land, the 35-year-old actress will portray one. She just signed on as the third and final lead on the network’s new series, The First Wives Club.

The network’s adaptation will more or less follow the film but with some minor changes. The three women will still reunite at their college friend’s funeral, but instead of their friend committing suicide, she’ll die from a freak accident. Also, New York City will be swapped out for San Francisco.

Lachey joins previously announced Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Megan Hilty (Smash) in the small-screen adaptation. Learn about Vanessa’s role below.

the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-7-taglines

After a two-year hiatus, the ladies from the Garden State return to Bravo on July 10. Andy Cohen teases the season premiere is everything and will have viewers crying. I can’t wait!!!

Ahead of RHONJ’s Season 7 premiere, the network has released the intro, revealing the taglines for each lady. I was hoping Teresa Giudice would reference her stint in the slammer as part of her tagline, but not surprisingly, she opted not to. Instead, she talks about turning tables. Is she DJ’ing now?

I hate the fact I picked Jacqueline Laurita’s one-liner as my favorite, but she sounds insanely stalkerish and psychotic with hers. I absolutely love it. Check out all the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 taglines below.
