If you love Portia de Rossi on Scandal, it’s your lucky day. Her character, Elizabeth “Lizzie Bear” North won’t be hibernating anytime soon. The 42-year-old actress has been promoted to series regular for the ABC drama’s fifth season. She revealed the news in an interview with TVLine.com.

“I’ve been here for the entire season, so, honestly, I already feel like I’m part of the family. It would’ve been very sad for me not to come back. And to come back with a guarantee of a few more episodes than [I was in this season] is really fantastic. It’s just a great ensemble cast. And we’re all really excited about the show — still. I came on as a fan, but all the actors are just as excited as when they first started the show. And I love Shonda Rhimes. I love Shonda Rhimes.” Portia tells TVLine.com

abc-2015-upfronts

During its upfronts presentation, ABC revealed they have ten new programs on deck- six dramas and four comedies. The ones that immediately caught my eye were Quantico, a thriller about a group of FBI recruits which includes a suspected terrorist mastermind, the Shonda Rhimes con drama, The Catch and the comedy The Real O’Neals about a gay boy and his religious Irish family. Sadly though, the latter two won’t premiere until midseason. The alphabet network is only premiering half of their new offerings in the Fall.

In terms of schedule, ABC is keeping things relatively status quo. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights remain mostly the same. The only notable slot change is Secret & Lies. It moves to Wednesday nights, sharing the 10pm slot with Nashville. Speaking of Secret & Lies, it was announced that only Juliette Lewis is set to return for the sophomore season.

ABC’s other new programs include a Muppets revival, Uncle Buck reboot and two former Gossip Girl alums headlining their own shows. Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick star in OIL and Wicked City respectively. The latter seems the more intriguing of the two. Check out all the trailers and show descriptions below.

bachelorette-season-11-guys-photos

The Bachelorette is just around the corner which means it’s time for ABC to roll out the guys vying for the next Bachelor slot ;) Each season is as much about finding love as it is about securing the highly-sought after gig. Hell, I’d switch to ‘Plan B’ too, as soon as I realized I had no shot at sweeping the Bachelorette off her feet.

The Season 11 guys have more power than their predecessors. During the first night, they get to pick which of Chris Soules’ castoffs will be the lucky lady. If you’ve read the spoilers, you already know if either Kaitlyn Bristowe or Britt Nilsson got the gig. Personally, I’m happy with their choice.

Based purely on their official photos, I picked the five guys I found hottest. With that being said, ABC should really reconsider hiring a new photographer. Nearly all of them, look much better in the group photo above than their individual pics. Maybe, it’s because of the tacky backdrop. Whatever it is though, it needs to be fixed. Future contestants deserve better. And might I suggest, shirtless photos at that.

Check out my top picks below solely chosen on looks alone. Be sure to share which ones are your favorites as well. The Bachelorette premieres on May 18 on ABC.

As of publish time, all of ABC’s shows learned their fates with exception to Last Man Standing. With regards to the Tim Allen sitcom, does anyone actually care ;)

While some of the renewals were simply a formality like in the cases of Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon A Time and Scandal, the alphabet network served a few surprises by granting certain freshman shows a sophomore run. Find out below if your favorites got the axe or if they live to see another day.

ABC Confirms Revenge Cancellation

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It appears Emily’s infamous red Sharpie has run dry. Many fans felt it was coming after Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) was blown to bits a couple of episodes ago, but were still hopeful. The powers-that-be squashed their hopes today by confirming the show’s cancellation via Entertainment Weekly.

After four seasons, Revenge will air its last episode on Sunday, May 10. The ABC drama made a splash during its freshman series, premiering to 10 million viewers. Once it shifted to Sundays, the viewership declined. A recent episode only garnered 4.45 million eyeballs.

Showrunner Sunil Nayar revealed they delivered a pitch on what direction Revenge would take in Season 5 after Victoria’s death, but both parties decided it was the perfect time to end the series after viewing the Season 4 finale, which is now the series finale titled. Will Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke meet her untimely death as well given that the title of the episode is “Two Graves?” Check out Nayar’s statement to EW.com below.

First things first, can someone please have an intervention with Lil Kim? Don’t you agree she’s gone completely overboard with all the plastic surgery and fillers? She’s practically unrecognizable from her Notorious K.I.M. days.

The 40-year-old rapper joined Patti Labelle and Amber Riley on a kick-ass performance of “Lady Marmalade” for Dancing With The Stars10th anniversary special. The three ladies slayed their parts and sounded great together.

I get why Christina Aguilera and P!nk weren’t present but where was Mya? The “My Love Is Like… Wo” singer competed on the show like Labelle, Riley and Kim. Was she still bitter from placing runner-up on the ninth season of the ABC reality show? I kid…not ;)

Another highlight from the special included Val Chmerkovskiy performing in only a pair of skimpy black underwear. WOOF!!! That bitch is so hot. Check out both clips below.

And then there were four. When Grey’s Anatomy first premiered back in 2005 on ABC, the medical drama featured nine series regulars. Isaiah Washington was the first to leave, after controversial comments. Shortly thereafter, T.R Knight followed and then Katherine Heigl and Sandra Oh. After Thursday night’s shocking development, another original bit the dust. If you’ve been watching this season, you probably have a good idea who. Find out below.
