What’s the opposite of a sausage party? Taco fest, clam bake? Whatever the term is, that’s exactly what the third season of summer staple, Bachelor In Paradise< /em>, is looking like so far.

Jared Haibon is the sole male announced as part of the cast. Obviously, more men will follow and fingers crossed that uber volatile Chad Johnson, on the current season of The Bachelorette, is one of them. Love him or hate him, he makes for riveting television.

Among the women revealed so far, most are Ben Higgins’ rejects. Most notably, Jubilee Sharpe and Lace Morris are included. Not surprising, given both dominated the early part of Season 20 with their antics.

Bachelor in Paradise returns Season 3 on Tuesday, August 2. Check out the partial cast list below.

As expected, ABC is pushing Scandal back to midseason due to Kerry Washington’s pregnancy. New drama Conviction will keep its timeslot warm until Olivia Pope and company return. A surprise, though, is the fact the alphabet network is moving The Middle to Tuesday, where it’ll kick-off a newly-extended two hour comedy block.

Unlike NBC and FOX, ABC is premiering most of its new programs in the fall as opposed to saving them for 2017. With regards to the fall shows, dramas Conviction and Notorious look promising as does the comedy, American Housewife. Fast forward to midseason, and the trailers I liked were Time After Time and Shonda Rhimes’ Romeo & Juliet series, Still Star-Crossed.

On the flip-side, the Jenna Elfman comedy, Imaginary Friend, looks like a hard sell. I predict it’ll be a one-and-done season show for sure. Check out all the trailers below, along with ABC’s new schedule.

With upfronts just around the corner, networks are busy scrambling to tie up loose ends. ABC just revealed the fates of nearly all their shows.

First off the good news. Freshman comedies The Real O’Neals and Dr. Ken both live to see another day and score sophomore seasons. Meanwhile, the critically-acclaimed limited series American Crime received a green light for a third season. It’ll be interesting to see what touchy subject creator John Ridley tackles next.

In somewhat of a surprise, The Catch snags a renewal as well. By far, the series is the worst performing among the Shondaland stable, but I’m sure the network doesn’t want to piss off Shonda Rhimes. Ergo, the renewal. I actually don’t mind the show, so I’m fine with this decision, along with the other renewals.

Firstly, congratulations to Kerry Washington and her former NFL cornerback husband Nnamdi Asomugha. The happy couple are expecting their second child.

The 39-year-old actress’ first pregnancy resulted in a reduced amount of episodes for the third season of Scandal. Also, since the pregnancy wasn’t written in the show, Washington had far less scenes and when she appeared, numerous props, mostly lamps, blocked her baby bump.

It’s all about classic game shows for ABC this summer. The alphabet network just added another revival for it’s Sunday Fun & Games block which already includes Celebrity Family Feud with Steve Harvey and The 100,000 Pyramid with Michael Strahan.

Alec Baldwin joins the lineup with a brand new Match Game. Not only will he host it, but he’ll serve as executive producer as well. Reportedly, the 58-year-old is receiving one of the highest game show hosting salaries ever. Here’s the surprising thing… he’s donating his talent fee to charity.

Michael Strahan Leaving Live With Kelly & Michael!

Looks like Kelly Ripa and Gelman will be on the search to find a new co-host once again. After spending nearly four years alongside the perky blonde, Michael Strahan is leaving the daytime show.

“My time with Live with Kelly and Michael has been transformative, and my departure will be bittersweet,” the former NFL player noted in the release. “Kelly has been an unbelievable partner, and I am so thankful to her and the entire team. I am extremely grateful for the amazing support I’ve received from all of the fans.”

Strahan is expected to leave Live With Kelly & Michael sometime this summer. The 44-year-old personality will join Good Morning America full-time. He began appearing twice a week on GMA in 2014.

“Over the past two years on GMA, Michael’s proven to be a tireless and versatile broadcaster with an incredible ability to connect with people, from veterans and all kinds of newsmakers to a host of modern American cultural icons,” said ABC News president James Goldston in a statement. “He is a great modern thinker and leader, and with our brilliant team in front of and behind the cameras, he will help us drive forward into a very exciting future.”

In addition to GMA, Strahan is expected to host ABC’s The $100,000 Pyramid primetime reboot this summer. It’ll be interesting to see if Strahan will continue his work as a Fox Sports anchor, given it’s for a different network.

Who do you think should replace Strahan on Live? Will you miss his banter with Kelly? Weigh in below.

Castle Cast Shakeup For Season 9

ABC hasn’t officially picked up Castle for a ninth season yet, but if it does, it’ll be without one of its co-leads. Stana Katic who plays Detective Kate Beckett on the long-running series is set to exit. Reportedly, it’s due to budgetary reasons.

“Rather then distract from what was an amazing experience, I would just like to say that I’m very grateful to ABC for giving me the opportunity to be a part of a much beloved show. Thank you to the fans.” – Katie Stanic

Also a victim of cutting costs is longtime cast member Tamala Jones as M.E. Lanie Parish. Below is ABC’s statement confirming both actresses’ exits.

“Kate Beckett has been a beloved character on our hit series Castle for the past eight years. We are grateful for Stana Katic’s talent and dedication to the series and we hope to continue our relationship. Tamala Jones has also been an integral part of the series and we are grateful she was a part of Castle.“

Rumor has it the alphabet network might renew the show for a shortened 13-episode ninth season. Do you watch Castle? Will you miss both ladies? I’m sure when the show airs its series finale, Katic will most likely return. It would be weird to have the final chapter without Castle’s love interest. Don’t you agree? Weigh in below.
