Meghan Trainor Sings Faux Thanksgiving Carols

In: Donovan, Music, TV Shows
meghan-trainor-thanksgiving-carols

The market is oversaturated with Christmas albums and every year more and more new ones enter the crowded field. While there are so many songs about Santa, Jesus and other yuletide fare, there’s barely anything about the joys of turkey on Thanksgiving.

For our American readers enjoying the holiday tomorrow, Meghan Trainor is here to fill in the gap. The “All About That Bass” singer hopes her tracks about missing her flight, racist Granny and other awkward topics about Turkey Day will become new holiday classics.

Sadly, the the album is just part of a skit for Jimmy Kimmel Live! Who else things this faux album could be a potential hit? Check out the hilarious commercial below.

For those too young to remember, David E. Kelley was sort of the Ryan Murphy of the 90s. The 58-year-old writer/producer was responsible for some of the most memorable series of the decade including Doogie Howser, M.D., Chicago Hope, Ally McBeal, The Practice and Picket Fences. His track record this decade hasn’t been as hot with several high-profile duds such as Harry’s Law, The Crazy Ones and the failed pilot for Wonder Woman. Here’s hoping his losing streak is finito.

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are definitely banking on his luck changing. The duo have signed on to star in a limited series titled Big Little Lies by Kelley. It is based on Liane Moriarty’s best-selling book of the same name.

Earlier this year, Kidman and Witherspoon optioned the rights to the book in hopes of starring in it for a feature film. Looks like they’re fulfilling the acting part, but it’s heading to a different medium. The two A-list actresses will executive produce along with Kelly and author Moriarty. Talk about too many chefs in the kitchen ;)

looking-2-outdoors

Over the weekend, HBO released two more clips giving fans a sneak peek at Season 2 of Looking. It appears the boys ditch life in the Castro for a little camping action. Or perhaps they’re more of the glamping variety. Jonathan Groff looks like the high maintenance type. I kid. Here’s what showrunner Andrew Haigh told Entertainment Weekly about what to expect.

“All of them have been in flux since the end of the last season, and they’ve all been doing their own thing a little bit,” explains executive producer Andrew Haigh. “This first episode is them being determined to spend more time together and go away to Russian River, which is, like, two hours outside San Francisco. It’s this really beautiful, tranquil place along the redwoods.” But there’s no guarantee of smooth sailing. According to Haigh, “they get outdoors. They go canoeing. Things happen.” We’re guessing they run into at least one or two bears.

Check out both clips below. Looking returns to HBO on Sunday, January 11. Which of the boys would you rather share a sleeping bag with? Sound off below.

Netflix Snags Tina Fey’s NBC Comedy

unbreakable-kimmy-schmidt

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was originally slated to debut midseason on NBC. The peacock network gave Fey a straight-to-series commitment for her new project when it ordered it earlier this year. So, it’s a little puzzling why it’s moving to Netflix. It’s not like the network has a riches in successful comedies on their schedule.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to debut Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt exclusively on Netflix, which has proven to be such an outstanding place for distinctive, original programming,” Fey and Carlock said in a statement. “Happily, we will still collaborate with our longtime partners at Universal Television to fulfill Netflix’s two-season order. We grew up at NBC and will continue to develop broadcast projects with them as well. We found the inspiration for this series in Ellie Kemper’s shining all-American face, and we know that she and Kimmy Schmidt have found their best possible home at Netflix.”

All 13 episodes of the first season will be available to stream sometime in March 2015. Ellie Kemper, of The Office and Bridesmaids fame, plays a woman who starts a new life in New York City after leaving a doomsday cult. Tituss Burgess, Lauren Adams, Sara Chase, Sol Miranda, Carol Kane and Tina’s former 30 Rock colleague Jane Krakowski round out the cast. Read below to learn NBC’s reason why the series is changing mediums.

2014-american-music-awards

The 2014 American Music Awards were handed out Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with Pitbull presiding over the ceremonies once again. Heading into the evening, Iggy Azalea led the pack with six AMA nominations. One Direction, however, ended up being the night’s big winner, taking home three awards- Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for Midnight Memories.

Unlike the VMAs though, Azalea didn’t go home empty-handed this time. The Aussie femcee won two categories. Taylor Swift also got in on the action by earning the event’s most prestigious honor. The legendary Diana Ross presented the “Blank Space” singer with the first-ever Dick Clark Award of Excellence!

Katy Perry and Sam Smith took home honors for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist respectively. Check out all the winners below.

In between all the acceptance speeches, there was a whopping 18 performances crammed into the three-hour telecast. There was something for everyone with artists ranging from teen dreams 5 Seconds of Summer to R&B veteran Mary J. Blige. My favorites of the night were Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea and Jessie J reuniting with Nicki Minaj and Grande.

On the flip side, I took bathroom breaks during Selena Gomez, Magic! and Fergie‘s set. Was it me, or did the Duchess move awkwardly slow and look a tad stiff? No disrespect but she looked like Iggy’s grandmother on stage. Check out the performances below.

The Queen Latifah Show Canceled Once Again

In: Donovan, TV Shows
queen-latifah-show-canceled

Queen Latifah just can’t get past that two-year hump. For the second time, The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled. The daytime talk program will shut down production at the end of the year, with broadcasts ending in March. Her first talk show ran from 1999-2001.

Had it not been for a two-year deal she inked for the show, I’m pretty sure it would’ve been canceled during its freshman season. Honestly, it’s not very good. Clearly hosting a talk show isn’t in the cards for Latifah. Maybe the third time’s a charm.

In such a crowded market, it’s getting harder and harder to successfully launch a new chatfest. Katie Couric, Bethenny Frankel and countless others couldn’t do it. Hopefully, Meredith Vieira has better luck. Latifah whose real name is Dana Owens posted a note on her Facebook. Read it below.

greer-grammer-miss-golden-globe

Every year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association picks a spawn of Hollywood’s elite to assist on stage during the live ceremony. During the first event of the Golden Globes Awards season held at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood, Greer Grammer was named Miss Golden Globe 2015. She’s the daughter of Frasier actor Kelsey Grammer and Barrie Buckner. Kelsey dated Barrie after his first of three divorces. The 22-year-old was named after actress Greer Garson.

“I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year’s Miss Golden Globe,” said an excited Greer. “It’s truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of.”

Greer currently stars in the MTV series Awkward. She will next be seen in the upcoming An Evergreen Christmas with Naomi Judd and Robert Loggia which will be released this Christmas, and in the new season of ABC Family’s Melissa and Joey. The rising star also appeared in Life Partners with Leighton Meester and Adam Brody.

After an exhaustive search, Ellen DeGeneres finally hired a new gardener earlier this week. It’s about time. Her bushes were getting out of control ;)

I don’t blame the talk show host for dragging out the well-publicized search. All the sexy submissions of shirtless men have undoubtedly given the show great exposure (literally and figuratively).

Derek Yates beat everyone to snag the vacant gig left by Nick aka Bill Reilich while he’s filming Magic Mike XXL. Speaking of which, I thought production had already wrapped shooting. Oh well. I guess he’s too big to come back :) Who is Derek you ask? The 30-year-old is an actor slash model. He’s also a philanthropist who started a non-profit after his brother was killed in an accident by an impaired driver.

Check out more pics of Yates below, along with his crowning moment. Weigh in if you think DeGeneres picked the right person for the job out of the Final 3 contenders.
