simpsons-family-guy-crossover-episode

What happens when two popular animated worlds collide? We will find out on Sunday, September 28 when The Simpsons kick off Season 26 with a special episode featuring fellow FOX animation domination cohorts, The Family Guy. Titled “The Simpsons Guy,” the episode will find the Griffin family invading the town of Springfield.

Surprisingly, when news broke out about the crossover episode, fans weren’t excited. The five-minute preview debuted at Comic-Con includes some jokes poking fun at fans criticisms.

If the Griffins weren’t enough for you, Bob from Bob’s Burgers also makes a cameo. Still wanting more? FOX also has a Futurama/Simpsons crossover episode planned for November. Check out the video preview below.

naya-rivera-glee-final-season

Rumors of Naya Rivera’s departure from Glee weren’t that greatly exaggerated. Months ago, rumors surfaced that Rivera and Lea Michele were clashing on set and as a result, Naya was cut from the season finale. Naturally, all parties shot down all reports.

Fast forward today and we official word. Rivera will return, but only on a recurring basis and not as a series regular. That should somewhat please Santana Lopez fans. Reportedly, the 27-year-old actress was the one who requested the change.

I’m not sure if I exactly buy it. What else does she have going on? Her recording career has stalled and she called off her engagement. However, she did make her film debut in the indie horror film, At The Devil’s Door, which debuted at South by Southwest earlier this year.

What do you think of Naya’s decision to not return as a series regular? With Glee sucking royally creatively last season, perhaps jumping off the musical ship is a savvy move. Sound off below.

FOX Cancels Hieroglyph Before Its Premiere

One of the more interesting new shows FOX presented during their upfronts was the Egyptian-themed drama Hieroglyph. The forthcoming 2014-2015 television season doesn’t begin until September but we already have our first official casualty. FOX has canceled the show before even its premiere. The network did the exact same thing last year with Jason Ritter’s Us & Them.

Writers for the show were told the unfortunate news on Monday. The show starred Max Brown, Reece Ritchie, Condola Rashad and John Rhys-Davies. The mid-season drama was reportedly not creatively coming together the way executives had hoped. Check out the show’s trailer below released by FOX a couple months ago.

The world of ancient Egypt – a time of magic, Pharaohs, gods and thieves – lives again in HIEROGLYPH, an exciting action-adventure series from creator/executive producer Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim,” “Clash of the Titans”). When a dangerous scroll, The Book of Thresholds, is stolen from Egypt’s most secure vault, master thief AMBROSE (Max Brown, “Beauty And The Beast,” “MI-5”) is plucked from prison to track down the perpetrator. Having spent the past five years in the darkest of pits, Ambrose quickly learns that his prison cell might be safer than the dangerous new world in which he finds himself: Atum, the empire’s capital. Ambrose must answer to Pharaoh SHAI KANAKHT (Reece Ritchie, “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”), a god in the flesh, a young ruler with a cool charm and a violent, frightening temper. The question for Ambrose is not whether he can trust his new boss, but whether he can trust anyone. Also stalking the halls of the palace is NEFERTARI KANAKHT (Condola Rashad, “Smash,” “Steel Magnolias”), half-sister to the Pharaoh, whose relationship with Shai’s closest advisor, MAGISTER BEK (guest star Hal Ozsan, “90210”), masks her own designs for power. Finding few leads in the palace, Ambrose’s investigation takes him to the doorstep of his long-lost love, PESHET (Caroline Ford, “Lake Placid: The Final Chapter”), a magic-wielding adoratrice, a type of homespun priestess who uses her femininity as a portal to the gods…for the right price. Peshet was the keystone in Ambrose’s merry band of thieves, an impressionable youth with great knowledge of magic, a woman who never saw a lock for which she didn’t have an unlocking charm. Five years later, Peshet has left her old life behind in a pious pursuit of divine contact. Ambrose’s journey also leads him to old friends, such as VOCIFER (John Rhys-Davies, “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark”), a peddler of mystical wares and Ambrose’s mentor. But he also comes face-to-face with foes both old and new, from RAWSER (Antony Bunsee, “EastEnders,” “Sex and the City 2”), the Pharaoh’s captain of the guard, who imprisoned him five years ago; to LOTUS TENRY (Kelsey Chow, “One Tree Hill”), a palace concubine and spy for a rival kingdom. As Ambrose unravels the mystery of The Book of Thresholds, he begins to see the extent to which sorcery has seeped into the halls of power in ancient Egypt, and how close it is to causing this great civilization’s downfall.

All Judges Returning For American Idol Season 14

In: Donovan, TV Shows
american-idol-season-14

Despite falling 28 percent among adults 18-49 last season, producers have decided to stick with the judging trio that is Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez. I’m sure this move will please remaining loyal American Idol viewers. The panel’s chemistry was generally well-received among fans and critics alike. Not a difficult feat given the debacle pairing up Mariah Carey with Nicki Minaj.

“Jennifer, Keith, Harry, and Ryan are the very best in the business at what they do, and I’m thrilled that they are returning to American Idol for another season,” said David Hill, senior executive vice president of 21st Century Fox. “Each brings unique qualities and expertise to the team, but they all share the same passion for helping undiscovered singers achieve the American dream.”

Connick was one of the best moves the show has done in the past few years. Personally, I think the lack of viable recording artists among the finalists is what did the show in. They need to fill the Top 12 with Kelly Clarksons, Carrie Underwoods and Phillip Phillips-like singers. Idol still has bragging rights over The Voice with creating superstars. After seven seasons, the NBC show still hasn’t achieved that.

What do you think? Glad everyone is back on board? Hopefully Randy Jackson finally goes away. Weigh in below.

New Gotham Promo Highlights The City’s Villains

Gotham will explore the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous. Ben McKenzie has been front and center in most of the FOX show’s promotional campaign, but the latest puts Batman’s future nemeses in the spotlight.

Villains” introduces Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/future Catwoman, Robin Lord Taylor’s Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a. The Penguin and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney. McKenzie narrates the snippet, explaining how they become the most dangerous villains in the city. “How will the little girl, a low-level thug, a business woman become the most dangerous villains around? Simple answer-they all got their start in this city,” he says.

Also part of the cast are Donal Logue (Detective Harvey Bullock), David Mazouz (Bruce Wayne), Sean Pertwee (Alfred the butler), Cory Michael Smith (Riddler), Erin Richards (Gordon’s fiancee) and Zabryna Guevara (Gordon’s boss). Check out the promo below.

American Idol 13: Final 2 Premiere Debut Singles

In: Donovan, Music, TV Shows

While I’ve enjoyed Harry Connick Jr on the judging panel (ecstatic he’s coming back), Season 13 of American Idol has been a little lackluster. For some reason, I just couldn’t get into it. With that being said, I do believe the rightful two made the finals and are the most deserving. Both Caleb Johnson and Jena Irene have impressed during the past weeks. Especially the latter who made the Top 13 via wildcard and landed in the Bottom 3 early on. Props to her for turning it around and winning viewers over.

Unlike in previous seasons, the show has released each contestant’s debut single aka coronation song prior to the finale. While not nearly as catchy as “Home” or “A Moment Like This,” both tracks are pretty good.

As Long As You Love Me” by Caleb Johnson is the better of the two, IMHO. However Jena Irene’s “We Are One” has a Katy Perry meets Kelly Clarkson vibe to it. May the better singer take it all next week. I’m personally rooting for Jena Irene. And you? Give both tracks a listen below.

FOX 2014-15 Upfronts: Schedule & Show Trailers

In: Donovan, TV Shows
fox-2014-upfronts

FOX presented their Fall 2014 schedule yesterday. I’ve been waiting for them to upload trailers for their new offerings. At last, the network finally got they lazy butts to work ;)

Without a doubt, Gotham is the most highly-anticipated among the bunch. Originally, FOX ordered 13 episodes but has since increased the order to 16. The Batman prequel is one of five new dramas, four new comedies, two event series and one new unscripted series FOX has in store for us.

Among the new programs that look most promising are Hieroglyph, Gracepoint, Empire and naturally Gotham. With American Idol pretty much dead and Glee ending next year, the network needs a breakout hit desperately.

Speaking of Glee, it was revealed that talks with Ryan Murphy are ongoing to see how many episodes are exactly needed to give the musical show a proper send-off. Reports say that it could be as low as 13. Gleeks brace yourself for a mini farewell.

Check out FOX’s new schedule below, along with trailers for most of their new shows.
