the-walking-dead-season-4-finale

The Walking Dead ended its fourth season with record viewers. The finale delivered 15.7 million viewers, representing the biggest audience for a season finale. The number is just shy of the series’ all-time record of 16.1 million which the AMC drama scored during the fourth season opener.

Sunday night’s episode was up substantially from last season’s closer which clocked in 12.4 million total viewers. For the first time in the show’s history, it ended the season with a cliffhanger. With people curious to know how the ending will be resolved, I fully expect The Walking Dead to break records when it returns for Season 5.

Pharrell Williams Joins The Voice As Season 7 Coach

pharrell-williams-the-voice-season-7-coach

For the past couple seasons of The Voice, the two middle red swivel chairs have been occupied by a rotating schedule of coaches with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green swapping places with Shakira and Usher. With Green announcing he wasn’t returning for Season 7, a part of me was hoping either Usher or Shakira would stay on and join Christina.

Rather than going with that option, producers have decided to bring on someone new. The Voice announced via Twitter that Pharrell Williams and his Arby’s hat are the new judge/mentor.

“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” NBC wrote.

With Christina Aguilera pregnant, I wonder if she’ll also skip the next season. If she does, who should replace her? Are you excited for Pharrell to replace Cee Lo? I’m definitely intrigued. With his current Midas Touch, the 40-year-old is hotter than ever. Contestants will definitely want to be on his team. Weigh in below.

CBS Replaces BFF On How I Met Your Mother Spinoff

Krysta Rodriguez was originally cast in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother spin-off. After a table read, producers decided a last-minute cast change was in order. The Smash alum was originally slated to play the sexy, flamboyant fashion blogger best friend of Sally. The producers rejiggered the role and have picked Rodgriguez’s replacement for How I Met Your Dad.

The potential sitcom follows Sally (Greta Gerwig), a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life. She has just figured out that she has nothing in common with her husband (Anders Holm) of less than a year and will find a solid circle of support in her friends and family.”

ricky-martin-dwts-guest-judge

Ricky Martin is slowly but surely building his resume critiquing contestants. First The Voice Australia and now Dancing With The Stars. The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer is among a handful of celebrity guest judges that will join Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli this season. The announcement was made by the DWTS panel on Good Morning America.

If there is anyone who has the credentials to judge hip movements, it’s the 42-year-old. He’s been shaking his “bon bon” since his Menudo days in the 80s. I wonder if James Maslow’s sexy salsa on Monday night helped persuade Martin to jump on board. I hope Maslow is still in the competition when Martin drops by. I can’t wait to see what the Puerto Rican’s eyes focus on.

netflix-grace-and-frankie-show

34 years after Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin starred in 9 To 5, the duo reunite for an upcoming gay-themed comedy for Netflix. The only thing that would make this even better is if Dolly Parton somehow was involved in this project. That would be beyond epic. Let’s hope for a very special episode featuring Parton as a guest star ;)

“Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are among the funniest and most formidable actresses ever and it’s an incredible privilege to give them the opportunity to run riot on Netflix,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “The show created for them by Marta and Howard is warm, very funny and anything but wholesome. We can’t wait.”
