The dawn of a new era for The View is here. Gone are Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar. Stepping in to join the three ring circus is blond funny lady Jenny McCarthy. ABC just released the first promo pics for the daytime talk show’s upcoming 17th season featuring its new addition. Judging by first impression, it appears she fits in just perfectly.
Already, she’s fooling around with Sherri Shepherd and poking fun at Barbara Walters. Why there isn’t a photo of Whoopi with Jenny is interesting? Are they already not getting along? Probably not the case, but it is interesting why a promo photo with just the two of them is missing. McCarthy makes her debut as an official host on September 9. Check out the promo photos below.
Grey’s Anatomy is losing an original cast member in 2014. Out of the OGs, only Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens, Jr., Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo remain. Isaiah Washington was fired after Season 3, and T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl left after Season 5 and Season 6 respectively. Sometime during the ABC show’s tenth season, one of the aforementioned six is bidding adieu to Seattle Grace Hospital. Find out who below.
Need your Girls fix before the HBO show returns for its third season? Well, you’re in luck. The Season 2 DVD is available now and comes with a whackload of extras that should appease every Hannah Horvath-obsessed viewer. The compilation features interviews, audio commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, table reads, gag reel and plenty other features. HBO has made a few of them available online. Check out a quartet of clips below.
Breaking Bad, more like breaking records. The AMC drama scored series-record ratings for its return last night. More than doubling its previous high. That’s right, DOUBLING. Most shows in their fifth year are well on their way towards cancellation, but not so for Breaking Bad.
Last night’s episode attracted more than 5.9 million viewers. Its’ previous best was 2.9 million for the premiere of the first half of the show’s fifth season back in July 2012. Looks like the show recruited a whackload of new fans during its hiatus. Breaking Bad’s record-setting night helped propel the network’s new series, Low Winter Sun. It convinced 2.5 million viewers to stay tuned in to AMC.
Did you watch last night’s episode? Glad Breaking Bad is back? Sound off below.
While it’s not as hilarious as his little brother Dave f*cking himself for Funny or Die, watching James Franco make out with his mirror reflection still calls for a chuckle. The 35-year-old actor locks lip with himself to promote his upcoming Comedy Central roast airing Labor Day. His Pineapple Express co-star Seth Rogen will serve as Roastmaster for the special. Given that these two have been friends since their Freaks and Geeks days, Rogen will have plenty of material and personal anecdotes to draw upon from. Expect plenty of gay jokes. Watch the “Just a Boy ” promo below.
We’re a week away (Sunday, August 18) from witnessing how the sitdown with Oprah Winfrey and Lindsay Lohan went. I can’t wait. The network just dropped another promo for the highly-anticipated interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter. Like the previous clip, this one features Winfrey grilling the embattled actress, shooting out a rapid fire of questions to her.
My favorites this time around include asking Lilo if she’s addicted to chaos and what’s going to be different this time. I’ll answer that. She’s got Oprah on her side. If anyone can set Lindsay straight, it’s O. Once again, Lindsay is mute in the promo, not uttering a single word. Check out the video below.
Watch out boys and girls, Showtime is about to get their freak on. Back when sex was still taboo, Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) set out to study the science of human sexuality, becoming pioneers in the field.
Showtime’s new series, Masters of Sex, chronicles the unusual lives, romance, and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine and nearly a dozen appearances on Johnny Carson’s couch.
The network just released the first trailer for the steamy new show. Masters of Sex debuts on Showtime on September 29. Check out the clip below. As an aside, it always shocks me how Lizzy Caplan looks in ‘normal’ clothes and makeup. Its so vastly different from her Mean Girls alter ego, Janis Ian.
Oh sh*t girl. Naya Rivera lays it down. The Glee actress premiered her debut single on LA station Power 106 and it’s pretty sick. Typically, television actresses pursuing music careers almost never cross over to become legitimate recording artists. I think the 26-year-old might actually be an exception to that rule.
While there are no chances for Naya to wow us with vocal acrobatics, “Sorry” is a perfect debut track to introduce her as a pop singer. It’s easy and laid-back without trying too hard. The beat and hook are infectious. It reminds me something that could’ve fit seamlessly on a Janet Jackson or TLC album back in the late 90s. Rivera is serving a serious vintage vibe. If this is what’s to come from Naya, I can’t wait for her debut album on Columbia Records. Check out her debut track below which features her boyfriend rapper Big Sean.
