FOX Renews New Girl For Sixth Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows
fox-new-girl-season-6

Zooey Deschanel and crew aren’t going anywhere just yet. FOX announced it renewed New Girl for a sixth season. No word if Megan Fox will appear next season, but she’s scheduled to return later this season.

“Every network comedy should aspire to what [creator] Liz Meriwether is achieving in ‘New Girl,’” FOX Entertainment president David Madden says in a statement. “… The series is as creatively strong today as it ever was, and we can’t wait for the next subversive and hilarious chapter in these characters’ lives.”

Given its age, naturally ratings have declined this year. The comedy has been averaging 3.8 million viewers per episode in season 5, with a 1.9 rating in the 18-to-49-year-old demo.

Not huge but for FOX it’s one of their better performing live-action comedies. It joins Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Last Man on Earth as the network’s returning comedies. The others on the schedule still haven’t learned their fates.

Do you still watch New Girl? Weigh in below.

I’m going to make this short and sweet for now as I have to head out for a birthday dinner. Until I write my commentary, check out all the performances on the American Idol series finale. It was an epic trip down memory lane with all the original judges reuniting for one last time. Check out all the action below. I’ll upload missing vids later.

This just made my day. Fingers crossed, his appearance is more than simply just walking on stage. God dang it, I want an encore performance of “She Bangs.”

William Hung never passed the audition rounds of American Idol Season 3, but he secured a record deal nonetheless. In fact, he’s probably sold more albums than some of the more recent Idol winners. That’s how powerful the once-mighty FOX show was.

These days, Hung can be found working at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Reportedly, he’s a technical crime analyst for them. Find out below, which ‘infamous’ personality from the show’s past is also returning for the farewell episode.

American Idol Might Not Be Dead After All

In: Donovan, Music, TV Shows

American Idol bids farewell this week with a three-night extravaganza beginning Tuesday. After 15 seasons and dwindling ratings, it’s the perfect time to close up shop. But apparently, it’s not so much of a ‘goodbye’ but rather a ‘see you later.’

Simon Fuller tells Hollywood Reporter that this isn’t the end of American Idol, only the version that we know of.

“There will no doubt be another format or refinement or elevation of the format. Now I can actually revamp it and come up with a new version. And we can look back on 15 seasons and think of some legitimate ways to allow people to enjoy them again, maybe adding another dimension to it.”

While I loved American Idol, it’s silly to start talking about it returning before it’s even aired its finale. A major misstep from the 55-year-old creator if you ask me. Read below what other tidbits Fuller shared about the FOX singing competition.

When FOX revealed which former alums were set to appear on the series finale of American Idol, there was one notable exception. Nowhere to be found on the long list was Jennifer Hudson. How could the singing competition sail off into the sunset with their solo Oscar winner? Unthinkable!!!

Thankfully, all is right in the world again. FOX confirmed the Dreamgirls actress will appear. Sadly though, it’ll be a pre-taped performance since the 34-year-old entertainer is currently starring on Broadway in The Color Purple. While I would’ve preferred to see Hudson stand with all the alums on stage, I’ll take this as a consolation prize.

The second season of Wayward Pines will pick up in the wake of Season 1, when a new arrival in the town finds himself in the middle of a serious rebellion, as the residents battle over how to preserve the endangered human race. FOX gives your first look at the upcoming season of the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series.

The clip introduces us to some of the new faces joining the show. Jason Patric plays Dr. Theo Yedlin, a new resident of Wayward Pines. Meanwhile Djimon Hounsou takes on the role of CJ Mitchum, a philosophical town historian who will make a decision that impacts the fate of town and citizens.

Check out the behind-the-scenes clip below which also gives a preview of some of the returning players including Carla Gugino, who returns “in a big way,” teases one of the producers. The 10-episode sophomore season kicks off Wednesday, May 25.

The end is almost here. American Idol bids adieu in just a couple of weeks. Hopefully, the network plans to send the show off in style. After all, the singing competition did chance the face of television.

FOX begins the three-night extravaganza with a 90-minute retrospective titled American Idol: American Dream on Tuesday, April 5. It’ll feature Ryan Seacrest, judges including Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and more, along with alums walking down memory lane to share their personal memories and tell never-before revealed stories.

The two-night finale then starts on April 6 with the show crowning its final Idol on April 7 live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The big Thursday show will feature group and solo performances from a whackload of former contestants including Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, Carrie Underwood and Fantasia.

I’m personally looking forward to seeing LaToya London, Kimberley Locke, Tamyra Gray and Jessica Sanchez the most. They even have Sanjaya on deck. Sadly, Jennifer Hudson isn’t included in the list. What’s up with that? Check out the lineup below.

scream-queens-season-2-cast

The most surprising survival from the first season of Scream Queens was the actual show itself. FOX renewed the black comedy for a second season despite lackluster ratings. It generated only 2.8 million viewers with a 1.1 rating. According to the network though, live watching only accounted for 30 percent of total viewership, with 26 percent catching up on DVR and 44 percent viewing via VOD and Hulu.

During the show’s PaleyFest panel on Saturday night, it was revealed who’s returning for the sophomore season. Pretty much, everyone who survived is returning, with one notable exception.

Skyler Samuels who played Grace Gardner didn’t attend the panel, nor was her name included in the Instagram video announcing that Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd and Glen Powell all booked return gigs.

Executive producer Brad Falchuk revealed Season 2 will be set in a hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation. Once again, a terrifyingly funny murder mystery will be at the center. Read below for their Season 2 character descriptions.
