shonda-rhimes-thursday-night

If you’re not a fan of Shonda Rhimes, I highly suggest avoiding ABC on Thursday nights this Fall. The prolific producer has three shows airing that night- Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and freshman series How to Get Away with Murder. All three shows begin their Thursday nights together on September 25.

“It is very daring. If you like great drama, that’s where you come,” Shonda says in the promo. “It’s going to be an edge-of-your-seat three-hour block of time on Thursday nights.”

The alphabet network began promoting Shondaland with a brand new preview, showing clips from each drama. In addition, each show’s leading lady sits down with Rhimes for some girl talk. Kerry Washington, Ellen Pompeo and Viola Davis tease their shows, warning us to ‘buckle up.’ Check out the clip below.

portia-de-rossi-scandal

Prep yourselves Gladiators!!! Portia de Rossi is heading to Scandal for a top secret story arc. Portia’s wife, Ellen DeGeneres, broke the news via Twitter.

“So annoying when people brag on twitter & that’s why I’m not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on “Scandal”. Oops.” – Ellen DeGeneres

If her role is half as good as Lisa Kudrow’s guest appearance last year, I’ll be one happy camper. Too bad Kudrow didn’t stay a little longer.

Holy Xena Warrior Princess!!! Lucy Lawless is ready to kick butt once again.

TV Guide has discovered that the 46-year-old actress is joining Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD for its sophomore run. Being as tight-lipped as they typically have, the showrunners haven’t disclosed anything about Lawless’ mysterious role. Hopefully, they’ll share a few juicy details during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.

Since playing Xena, the Kiwi actress has maintained her geek street cred. She’s appeared on Battlestar Galactica, Spartacus and No Ordinary Family.

Excited for Lawless to enter the Marvel universe? Anyone else hoping a future showdown between her character and Ming-na Wen? Weigh in below.

One of the more intriguing shows on ABC’s Fall 2014 schedule is Forever. It stars Ioan Gruffudd as a medical examiner in New York City. While he’s able to solve criminal cases with ease, one mystery has eluded him for 200 years- his own immortality. Whenever he dies, he rises from the dead and always naked. Thank you ABC ;)

Expect plenty of scenes of Gruffudd in very little clothing. Ergo this new steamy promo released by ABC. Check it out below, along with the show’s trailer presented during the upfronts a few months ago. Alana de la Garza (Law & Order), Lorraine Toussaint (Saving Grace) and Judd Hirsch (Taxi) round out the cast.

The 2014 Primetime Emmy Nominations & Snubs

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced this morning at the TV Academy in North Hollywood. HBO, once again, reigns supreme beating out rival networks with 99 total nominations. Silicon Valley, The Normal Heart, Veep, True Detective and naturally Game of Thrones all being recognized by the Academy. Behind it were CBS with 47 noms, NBC with 46, and FX with 45.

In terms of individual shows, Game of Thrones is this year’s most nominated program. Close behind were Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven with 18 and 17 nominations respectively. I was pleasantly surprised to see Adam Driver (Girls) and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) get some love.

On the flip side, Modern Family‘s Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara were snubbed. Also missing out were The Blacklist‘s James Spader and The Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany. How many characters does the latter have to play to get some Emmy lovin’.

The Americans, Sons of Anarchy and The Good Wife also missed out in the big categories. The latter’s omission certainly hurts given no broadcast shows made the Best Drama cut. Arguably, the CBS program had one of its best creative years ever.

Winners will be announced at the 66th annual Primetime Emmys ceremony on August 25, to be hosted by Seth Meyers. Check out the rest of the nominations below.

elisabeth-hasselbeck-fox-and-friends

Though not confirmed by ABC yet, everyone’s talking about Rosie O’Donnell’s return to The View. Naturally, her former co-host and often combatant Elisabeth Hasselbeck has a few words to say about the situation.

Not even a stay-cation could prevent Hasselbeck from chiming in. She called into Fox & Friends‘ Wednesday’s show from home. Not surprisingly, she didn’t have too many positive words about Rosie’s comeback. She even suspects that this has been in the works for some time now, stating Barbara Walters’ farewell episode was more like O’Donnell’s “hello show.” Listen to her thoughts below, along with what Rosie told her during Walters farewell show.

Is Rosie O’Donnell Heading Back To The View?

Ever since it was revealed Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd weren’t returning for Season 18 of The View, speculation has ran rampant on possible replacements for the departing co-hosts.

One rumored candidate is none other than Rosie O’Donnell. Given that she left after a highly-publicized bout with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, it’s surprising she’d even entertain coming back. I guess after a failed talk show on OWN, Mama needs a way to pay the bills.

According to TMZ, O’Donnell has signed on the dotted line. Their sources also reveal an official announcement by the network is coming soon. Can you imagine Rosie and Whoopi Goldberg on the same panel? This should be good.
