Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.

dwts-season-19-premiere

The premiere of any Dancing With The Stars season is my favorite. Watching which stars come out as the early frontrunners and surprise me with their dancing talent brings out my inner nerd. It’s not uncommon to see me break into a smile or clap after witnessing an endearing performance. The Season 19 kick-off was no different.

Though the cast has been criticized for not being exciting or bringing in the star wattage, I quite enjoyed the show. Not surprisingly, Alfonso Ribeiro topped the leaderboard, scoring 9s across the board. After all, he did dance with Michael Jackson as a kid and gave us ‘The Carlton’ on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It was great his Silver Spoons co-star, Ricky Schroeder, showed his support in the audience.

The one who surprised me the most was Randy Couture. Who knew the wrestler could be so graceful? He’s my dark horse pick. Even though they have no shot in hell to win the mirrorball, both Tommy Chong and Betsey Johnson made me smile. They’re both so adorable and gave better-than-expected performances given their age. Well done. Hopefully, Johnson survives this week despite having the lowest score of the night.

Along with the aforementioned, I’m also rooting for Jonathan Bennett, Lea Thompson and Janel Parrish to do well.

Personally, I hope LoLo Jones gets the axe. She had resting bitch face the entire night after messing up her dance. In all seriousness, she was a flat out BITCH which is a shame because I like her pro, new-to-the-show Keo Motsepe. Check out her misstep below, along with all the other performances.

Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars is officially underway. The cast for the upcoming season was announced by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews (glad she’s back) Thursday morning on Good Morning America. While some of the celebrities were expected (thanks to spoilers), there were still a couple of pleasant surprises.

By far, the star I’m most excited about is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum Alfonso Ribiero. Can anyone say ‘The Carlton?’ The actor revealed he’d also incorporate a couple of classic Michael Jackson moves in his routines. Ribeiro starred alongside the King of Pop as a kid during a Pepsi commercial. Not only will Alfonso provide plenty of entertainment, but he’s also a viable contender. Team Carlton for the win.

The veteran reality competition show ups its fashion game this season by enlisting fashion vlogger Bethany Mota and iconic designer Betsey Johnson. The latter confirmed her signature cartwheels would be in the mix.

Noticeably missing are recent Bachelorette Andi Dorfman and American Ninja Warrior standout Kacy Catanzaro. The two were rumored to be joining the cast. Check out the entire cast below which includes a former Calvin Klein underwear model, Mean Girls alum, Olympian and wrestler to name a few. Their professional partners were also revealed.

The View Confirms New Panelists For Season 18

At long last, the new View is coming into focus. When ABC addressed Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy’s departures back in July, the network stated they would be moving in ‘an exciting new direction next season.’ They weren’t kidding.

First, word came that Rosie O’Donnell booked a return ticket to the panel after her infamous one-year stint. With less than two weeks before the talk show’s Season 18 premiere on September 15, producers have finally revealed the other two panelists sitting alongside O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg.

“These are powerful and accomplished women from different walks of life who have had amazing personal and professional experiences. Each brings incredible perspective and information to the table,” said Bill Wolff, the show’s new executive producer, who joined last month from MSNBC.

Producers are doubling down on ‘Rosie.’ Former Fly Girl choreographer Rosie Perez who has previously served as a guest co-host has secured a more permanent seat. Two Rosies on the panel!!! Things are about to get a little spicy. While most of the media attention focused on who’d fill the conservative seat on the panel, the Academy-nominated Fearless actress flew below everyone’s radar. I’m a fan so I approve of Perez’s appointment.

“I am beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised that I’ve been asked to join ‘The View’,” says Perez in a statement

Revenge Flips The Script For First Season 4 Promo

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After suffering the dreaded sophomore slump, Revenge returned to its revenge-y awesomeness for Season 3. Had the show ended last year, it would’ve been a fitting and satisfying end. Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) finally exacted vengeance on both Conrad and Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe). The former was incarcerated before being gunned down, with the latter was committed to a mental asylum.

With Emily finally succeeding with her plans, what’s in the cards for her for Season 4. Based on the first promo, it appears the show is flipping the script.

Victoria is shown narrating the promo detailing the turmoil Emily has caused to her life. Will she be the permanent narrator of the show or just simply for the promos. If the fourth season is all about Victoria getting revenge, should we expect Emily’s infamous red marker to make its way to Victoria’s hands?

Whatever producers decide, I can’t wait to find out when the ABC drama returns September 28, in its new Sunday timeslot at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Check out the promo below.

Mini Friends Reunion On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Just hours after Warner Bros announced its plans to open a Central Perk pop-up coffee shop in New York City to celebrate the sitcom premiere’s 20th anniversary, a mini Friends reunion took place on late night television. Kimmel brought together Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for a segment on his talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The ladies reprised their iconic roles to recite some Friends fan fiction. To make things even more authentic, Kimmel recreated the kitchen from Monica and Rachel’s apartment which reportedly cost $80,000. Jimmy also participated, playing a more lecherous version of Ross for the skit.

For the most part, the girls were good sports. Aniston drew the line when it came to putting on a wig styled after her infamous ‘Rachel‘ haircut. Watch all the action below.

Chris Soules Is Officially The Next Bachelor

After Emily Maynard reject, Arie Luyendyk Jr., spilled the beans about the next Bachelor, ABC made it official.

Chris Soules, who was sent home right before the finale on Andi Dorman’s Bachelorette season, will be handing out roses for the dating show’s 19th season. The 32-year-old farmer from Iowa was easily the frontrunner, winning over the shows’ fans. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have a fall from grace like most of his predecessors. Juan Pablo Galavis and Ben Flajnik anyone?

“Absolutely, that’s why I am doing it. I believe in the process I believe in what I went through on the previous show and that’s why I am doing it I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t feel like that was a potential.” - Chris Soules

Chris has been engaged once before, but the seven-year relationship ended just months before he expected to walk down the aisle. Season 19 of The Bachelor will air in January 2015.

It’ll be interesting to see how many of the women are legitimately serious about moving from their respective homes to working on a farm. Andi can deny it all she wants, but I’m sure that’s the big reason why she dumped Soules. Do you agree? Excited for Chris to give out roses? Did producers make the right choice? Sound off below.

Before you get too excited, she’s not returning as one of the professional dancers. Rather, Julianne Hough will have a permanent spot on the panel for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. She won’t be replacing anyone. Instead, she will sit alongside panel regulars Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman as the fourth judge.

“I’m so excited to be back with my “Dancing with the Stars” family again on a regular basis,” Hough later said in a statement. “I’ve always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I’m acting, dancing or singing, and I’m thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits.”

She added, “Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I’m ready to have fun in this new role.”

While I enjoyed Hough as one of the pros, her appearances as a guest judge left something to be desired. Clearly the producers felt otherwise. Love it or hate it, viewers will now have to sit through four critiques for each dance. #overkill. Watch Hough make the announcement on Good Morning America earlier today.
