There’s still no word on when the Frozen sequel is coming, but at least there’s this to tide fans over until it arrives. ABC announced an animated Christmas special featuring Elsa and the gang is in the works. The network plans to air it during the 2017 holiday season.

If you’re worried other actors are voicing the beloved characters, fear not. Idina Menzel will return to voice Elsa, along with Kristen Bell as Anna, Jonathan Groff as Kristoff, Josh Gad as Olaf and Frank Welker as Sven.

Original directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee aren’t working on this project. I assume they’re busy developing the feature film sequel instead. Emmy winners Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton (Brother Bear) will take on directing duties while Oscar winner Roy Conli (Big Hero 6) will produce it.

ABC loves to spin-off The Bachelor. There’s been Bachelor Pad, Bachelor in Paradise and of course The Bachelorette. Not to mention all those special one-off Bachelor wedding specials. If the powers-that-be are looking for a new idea, might I suggest an entire series based on this last group date. No lie, I could watch this all day long and still laugh my head off.

While in the Bahamas, Ben Higgins took a few of the remaining ladies for an experience they won’t soon forget. They headed to an uninhabited island of Big Major Cay dubbed affectionately “Pig Beach.” It’s not known how the pigs arrived there, but local lore suggests that they were dropped off by a group of sailors who wanted to come back and cook them later. Whatever the reason, these piglets are there now and are a major tourist attraction.

Watch the girls interact with these animals as they offer up some treats. The brunette chick named JoJo had me howling when she found herself surrounded by a few of the bigger pigs. Her freakout is hilarious! Check out the clip below.

Debra Messing Joins Dirty Dancing Remake At ABC

Networks are all about musicals these days. Rocky Horror Picture Show, Grease and Hairspray are just a few highly-anticipated projects coming our way. ABC throws their hat in the proverbial ring with their Dirty Dancing remake.

Thus far, only Abigail Breslin as been announced as a cast member. The Scream Queens actress snagged the role of Frances “Baby” Houseman, famously played by Jennifer Grey. Now, Breslin has a little company.

Taking a break from solving cases over at Mysteries of Laura is Debra Messing. The 47-year-old actress has been tapped to play Marjorie Houseman, the mother of Baby. In the original 1987 movie, Mama Houseman barely did/said anything. It’ll be interesting to see if the part is padded to utilize Messing’s talents.

Like FOX’s Rocky Horror Picture Show, ABC’s musical remake won’t be a live production. Do you this Dirty Dancing remake is a good idea? What do you think of the cast so far? Sound off below.

With the holidays officially dunzo, Kylie Minogue can focus on other things besides shilling her Christmas album. I wouldn’t blame her if she was tired of all things festive. Truth be told, I’m excited to get back to the regular swing of things.

The 47-year-old Aussie appeared on the second season premiere of Galavant on Sunday night. Why would she appear in the musical comedy you ask? Simple, for her hot hunky man.

Queen Kylie, literally in this situation, dressed in Medieval garb to boss around her real-life lover, Joshua Sasse. She orders her hunky 28-year-old boy toy to take off his shirt, slaps him around and other things. That’s what you get when you accidentally stumble into a club filled with a bunch of thirsty homos. Check out the campy number, “Off With His Shirt,” below.

With NBC hit ratings gold with The Wiz Live! and Grease Live! airing on FOX in January, ABC must be feeling a little left out. Not anymore. The alphabet network has greenlit a musical version of Dirty Dancing. Unlike NBC and FOX’s offering though, the three-hour ABC event isn’t going the live route.

While no word on who’ll fill Patrick Swayze’s shoes in the musical, producers have found their Baby, originally played by Jennifer Grey. Find out which Scream Queen has been tapped to play the iconic role.

Heading into the 43rd annual American Music Awards, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift led the pack with six nominations apiece. The “Hills” singer walked away with two awards while the “Blank Space” chanteuse snagged three statues. Other multiple winners of the night were One Direction, Nicki Minaj and Florida Georgia Line.

As with most music awards show, the telecast was all about the performances. Jennifer Lopez kicked the night off by performing a slowed-down version of her hit “Waiting For Tonight” before pulling an insane dance routine to a mashup featuring the year’s biggest hits. Girl slayed it and then some.

Other memorable performances were Demi Lovato joining Alanis Morissette on “You Oughta Know,” Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor making out to “Marvin Gaye,” Ariana Grande performing “Focus” without her signature high ponytail, Pentatonix with their Star Wars tribute and Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber each singing a medley of their hits. By far though, the emotional high point was Celine Dion’s tribute to Paris. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Ratings For Wicked City Not So Wicked

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Poor Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick. The guys of Gossip Girl aren’t having the best fall. Crawford’s Blood & Oil stumbled out the gate and recently got its episode order cut from 13 to 10. In other words, it’s pretty much canceled.

Westwick’s future on ABC doesn’t look that bright either. Wicked City premiered last night to lackluster ratings. The serial killer drama snagged just 3.3 million viewers and a 0.9 rating. That paltry number is even smaller than last season’s Forever who previously occupied the slot. It was down 47% from the Ioan Gruffudd drama’s premiere.

Clearly, viewers weren’t in the mood for violence porn. Did you watch the series premiere? I did and thought it was average. Westwick and Erika Christensen were the best part, along with the 80s soundtrack playing in the background. Weigh in below.
