In addition to the Rocky Horror Picture Show, FOX also has another musical in the works. The network gets biblical with The Passion Live, airing on Palm Sunday.

The two-hour musical event taking place live in New Orleans will be hosted and narrated by Tyler Perry. It’s based on a format originally created in the Netherlands. The yearly event has become a pop culture phenomenon in that country.

Seal has joined the star-studded cast. He’ll play Pontius Pilate. Read below to find out who else is starring in the highly-anticipated project.

With such universal praise for Grease Live!, FOX must be feeling a little pressure for their next big musical production. Unlike Grease though, the Rocky Horror Picture remake won’t be a live staging. Reportedly, this decision was made to attract top talent who were fearful of performing without the safety net of retakes.

Personally, I think there’s more pressure this way. At least if it’s live you can chalk it up to nerves, technical issues etc… With it being taped, I guarantee critics and viewers alike will be much more critical.

Christina Milian is the latest to join the project. Find out what her role is below.

Grease Live: Huge Ratings & My Five Favorite Numbers

In: Donovan, Music

Grease was definitely the word on Sunday night. FOX’s first live musical production hit all the right notes, scoring with critics and viewers alike.

Grease: Live danced away with 12.2 million viewers and an impressive 4.3 rating among adults 18-49, beating NBC’s last two live productions. The Wiz Live and Peter Pan Live scored 11.5 million and 9.2 million respectively. It did fall short, however, of The Sound of Music Live which delivered a whopping 18.3 million viewers. FOX, though, should be very proud. The network proved you could stage a live production without making it a hate-watching event.

Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed the three-hour extravaganza. There were so many moving parts (multiple sound stages, live audience and rainy weather) to the elaborate production. FOX really set the bar high for all following live musicals. This one will be hard to beat.

According to The Wrap, Vanessa Hudgen’s standout number, “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” was the most re-watched scene during the live telecast. While Hudgen’s Rizzo cover ranked in my Top 5, it wasn’t my favorite. Find out which scene was below.

FOX Banishes Second Chance To Friday Nights

Looks like Second Chance might be on life support. After two lackluster showings, FOX is banishing the Robert Kazinksy drama to Friday nights. In only drew a 1.2 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic for its premiere and then dropped to 1.0 the following week. It’ll swap time slots with Hell’s Kitchen which will now follow American Idol on Wednesday nights.

Second Chance stars Kazinsky as the resurrected young buff version of a dead, corrupt sheriff who helps his FBI agent son solve crimes and corruption. If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, his new blood is being used to cure a tech billionaire with cancer.

It seemed troubled from the get-go. The series was initially titled Frankenstein before becoming The Frankenstein Code and then Lookinglass before settling on Second Chance. Truly a shame to waste Kazinsky’s talents and ‘assets’ on this trainwreck. Fingers crossed he gets another gig soon.

Did you sample Second Chance? I did and barely got through the pilot. I can’t say I’m too surprised about its fate. Sound off below.

The X-Files Revival Gets Off To A Stellar Start

Final numbers won’t be released until later today, but the preliminary ones are quite promising for the return of The X-Files.

The limited series revival drew an impressive 13.5 million total viewers on Sunday night during its first half-hour. When final national numbers are tabulated, experts are predicting the number of viewers will fall between in the 15 million-to-16 million range. Not too shabby.

When FOX airs Grease: Live, Jessie J gets the honor of kicking things off. The 27-year-old Brit begins the show by covering “Grease Is The Word” originally sung by Frankie Valli in the 1978 hit musical.

“There’s no pressure like being the first one on stage. I love that rush of the nerves I’m going to get, I just feel very honored and very lucky that I’ve been asked to experience something like this,” Jessie tells Billboard.

For the most part, Jessie stays true to the arrangement of the Barry Gibb-penned tune. Give her rendition a spin in the clip below which features plenty of footage of the cast during rehearsals.

Colton Haynes Joins Grinder

No, not that Grindr, the gay hookup app. Though how awesome would that be? Instead, it’s the FOX freshman comedy, The Grinder.

The 27-year-old actor booked a guest spot on the series, playing Rob Lowe’s onscreen son in the show, within the show. Confusing? If you watch the show, it shouldn’t be. His episode will air on February 2.

Great casting choice. There’s somewhat of a resemblance between the two actors. After appearing in Teen Wolf and Arrow, it’ll be nice to see Colton Haynes do a little comedy. Check out a photo below of father and son on set.

FOX Renews Scream Queens For A Second Season

And like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhies and Michael Myers, it appears nothing can kill Scream Queens even with its mediocre ratings. The FOX horror series averaged just 2.8 million weekly viewers and a 1.1 demo, but the network decided to give it a second season.

I’m sure the renewal has more to do with wanting to stay on Ryan Murphy’s good graces than anything else. Though the network claims only 30 percent of its audience watched live. Across multiple platforms, the show drew a total audience of 7.2 million viewers, a 167 percent increase from its same-day audience, according to them.
