In: Donovan, TV Shows

After the one and done series run of State of Affairs, Katherine Heigl is taking another stab at a comeback. The 36-year-old actress is switching networks, though, in hopes of a different outcome.

Heigl heads over to CBS to star in the upcoming legal drama, Doubt. If the show name sounds familiar, this isn’t the first attempt. The eye network greenlit a pilot last year, but didn’t pick up the series for their upfronts presentation. Instead of ditching it completely, CBS decided to recast some key roles.

big-brother-17-cast

With a week before Big Brother returns for its 17th season on June 24, CBS has finally revealed the 14 houseguests vying for $500,000 and bragging rights. As always, fans should “expect the unexpected” with CBS touting new twists being implemented this year. Sadly though, those won’t be revealed until the two-night premiere. Care to make any guesses? Hopefully, producers won’t go overboard with too many twists as their Canadian counterparts did this past season.

At first glance, the cast looks quite promising. This year’s resident male hottie will undoubtedly be Clay Honeycutt. With a name like that, you just know he’s from Texas and a stud. Check and check. Also quite interesting is an Asian brother in the mix- James Huling. The CBS reality show has certainly been lacking with regards to that over the years. There’s even a GinaMarie look-alike in the bunch, Vanessa Rousso.

However, the most interesting cast member is Audrey Middleton. CBS hasn’t officially revealed she’s transgender and simply reveals she’s a digital media consultant from Georgia. TMZ, though, reveals that Audrey was previously a boy named Adam before transitioning several years ago. Check her out below, along with the other houseguests.

david-letterman-finale-show

After 33 years on late night television, 22 of which at the helm of The Late Show on CBS, David Letterman hosted his final show. Leading up to his swan song, the 68-year-old host welcomed some of his most notable guests including Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Adam Sandler, Tom Hanks and George Clooney to name a few. However, for his final hour, Letterman went for a relatively subdued approach, as compared to Jay Leno and Chelsea Handler’s send-offs.

It mostly consisted of clip montages from his over 6,000+ shows. The only celebrities that showed up did so to deliver his final Top 10 List, “Top 10 things I’ve always wanted to say to Dave.” Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and six others participated.

He was also joined by President Obama and former presidents in a pre-taped segment for the intro. It all ended with the Foo Fighters sending Letterman off to the sunset. Who knew David was such a fan of the Dave Grohl-fronted band.

Check out his final Top 10 list below, along with his final monologue, farewell and more clips.

Survivor: Second Chance Cast Revealed

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After a public vote that lasted two weeks, the cast of Survivor’s 31st season was revealed at the end of Survivor: Worlds Apart Reunion. For the most part, the results weren’t too surprising. Overall, it’s a good mix of original castaways and recent players.

Survivor Seasons 22 through 24 did remarkably well, with everyone eligible making the cut, while players from S28 and S29 were shut out. Probably the biggest shocker was that Carolyn Rivera from the current season didn’t generate enough votes. I’m also curious to know which lucky guy made the cut after Mike Holloway won Survivor: Worlds Apart, thereby making him ineligible. Jeff Probst revealed Holloway ranked in the Top 10. Hopefully, Probst reveals that tidbit in the future.

Check out the castaways being shipped off to Cambodia to vie for the Survivor: Second Chance title. Be sure to weigh in on which ones you’re rooting for? Also share your thoughts on who you’re surprised made the cut and who didn’t.

cbs-2015-upfronts

When you’re number one, not much tweaking is required. CBS has finished on top 12 out of the last 13 years. With that in mind, the eye network still plans on rolling out seven new shows in hopes they maintain their crown.

Arguably, one of the most anticipated shows is Supergirl featuring Glee alum Melissa Benoist in the titular role. Based on the trailer, it appears Greg Berlanti is going more in the vein of The Flash as opposed to Arrow. It’s more lighthearted and dare I say campy. Calista Flockhart, IMHO, steals the spotlight in the trailer.

Other new offerings include, Rush Hour and Limitless which are both based on feature films. The latter starred Bradley Cooper, who’s now one of the producers. He won’t reprise his role but he’s agreed to play a recurring character. Jane Lynch books her first post-Glee gig in the comedy Angel From Hell.

With regards to veteran programs, CBS decided to yank the once-dominate CSI. It’ll end its run with a special two-hour movie featuring the returns of original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger. Fans of 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly and The Odd Couple will have to wait til midseason, as well as Person of Interest viewers.

Check out CBS’ new schedule below, along with the trailers and descriptions of their shiny brand new shows.

For the most part, the broadcast networks have revealed the fates of their shows heading into next week’s exciting upfronts week. I’m sure the remaining shows in limbo will learn the verdict this weekend.

For a television addict like myself, it’s my favorite time of the year. I can’t wait to see what they think will become the next breakout hits next season. Until the big unveiling, check out below to see if your favorites are returning for the 2015-16 season.
