Grease Live! Cast Hand Jives In New Promo

In: Donovan, TV Shows

On the heels of FOX releasing the first promo images of its highly-anticipated production of Grease Live!, comes the first clip. This time, however, Aaron Tveit, Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens aren’t the only ones featured. The entire main cast don their 50s-era outfits to serve up retro realness.

Carly Rae Jepsen (Frenchy), Keke Palmer (Marty), Carlos PenaVega (Kenickie) and the rest of the cast shake and shimmy in front of their Rydell High lockers to the iconic song, “Born To Hand Jive.” It’s a fun and slick promo that has me even more excited for the telecast. Will this new cast, though, do the beloved musical justice come January 2016? Fingers crossed. Check out the promo below.

Grease Live! Synopsis

Featuring a young ensemble cast, GREASE: LIVE will reintroduce and reimagine some of the show’s most memorable moments, great music and timeless love story to an entirely new generation. In this live television adaptation of the musical classic, the beginning of senior year means the end of Danny and Sandy’s summer romance – until Sandy unexpectedly transfers to Danny’s high school. Can Danny maintain his bad-boy image as the coolest member of the T-Birds, once he and Sandy start going together, and can Sandy remain a good girl after she joins the Pink Ladies? With their friends Rizzo and Kenickie pulling them in different directions, it’s up to Danny and Sandy to stay hopelessly devoted as they make their way from Rydell High to a new frontier.

After a lengthy delay due to finding the right Danny Zuko, FOX finally airs Grease Live! on January 31. It appears it was worth the wait. The first official cast promo images are on point.

Aaron Tveit steps into John Travolta’s tight black jeans quite nicely, while Vanessa Hudgens channels her inner Pink Lady, playing Betty Rizzo. Two images of Julianne Hough show us the two sides of Sandy- the innocent new girl at school and the sexy vixen at the end of the flick.

Hopefully, images of Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie, Keke Palmer as Marty, Carly Rae Jepsen as Frenchy, Kether Donohue as Jan and David Del Rio as Putzie follow soon.

Jessie J will also take part in the production, performing a rendition of “Grease (Is the Word)” at the beginning of the telecast. Check out the images below.

When American Idol returns for its swan song in January 2016, a few familiar faces might pop by. Ryan Seacrest reveals that past and present judges will be together again to bid adieu to the long-running singing competition.

“I’ve spoken to all of them recently and we as a team have talked to them about coming back to do something for the final season,” Seacrest told Access Hollywood on Thursday.”They are going to do it, it’s just a matter of figuring what to do with them.”

While I was fully expecting the original threesome, Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson would return for the farewell season, I’m actually a bit surprised all the former judges are open to a reunion.

Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj had a fiery feud during their time on the show. To boot, both ladies along with Ellen DeGeneres have commented that they’ve regretted sitting on the panel. Nonetheless, it would be great for everyone to reunite on stage.

Excited to see all the judges return to their former stomping grounds? Does anyone even remember Kara DioGuardi? I kid. Weigh in below.


The network previously tried to develop a revival of The Greatest American Hero last year but to no avail. “Believe It or Not” (to quote the original theme song), FOX is attempting to reboot the 80s cult classic one more time. Instead of hourly episodes, the new version will take on a single-camera comedy format.

The Greatest American Hero starring William Katt as the titular character ran for three seasons on ABC. The series chronicled his adventures after a group of aliens gave him a red suit that granted him superhuman abilities.

Arguably, the most successful thing about the original series was its memorable theme song. The Joey Scarbury-sung song became a huge hit. It spent 18 weeks in the Top 40, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Can you imagine a theme song from any show in recent memory capable of doing the same feat? They don’t make theme songs like they used to. If you can’t recall the classic track, check it out below.

‘Discover an Idol one last time,’ encourages American Idol. The once-dominate singing competition heads off to the television graveyard after Season 15. A recent promo takes a nostalgic look back at the show’s glory days, specifically at the OG Idol, Miss Kelly Clarkson herself.

Check out the video below and try not getting a bit misty watching it as Kelly belts out “A Moment Like This.” You might need a tissue or two.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve watched the Miss Universe pageant every year. That is until Donald Trump opened his big mouth. I missed the last one due to that fool.

After airing on NBC for a dozen years, the network dissolved their partnership after Trump’s controversial remarks about immigrants. The 2015 competition ended up airing on Reelz. It appears, the Miss Universe Organization has found a new home.

The Miss Universe telecast is one of the most-watched events in the world, with distribution in approximately 190 countries and territories. Naturally, it’s a sought-after commodity. FOX has stepped up and snagged the rights to air both Miss Universe and Miss USA.

“The Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants are iconic television events loved by generations of viewers around the world,” Fox president David Madden said in a statement. “We are very excited to partner with IMG and The Miss Universe Organization to infuse a fresh new energy into these perennial broadcast favorites.”

Typically at this point of the new fall season, there’s already been a few casualties. None of the major broadcast networks have dropped the axe on any of their new offerings as of yet? Why, you ask? It’s because reducing the number of ordered episodes is the new cancellation. ABC, FOX and NBC have all trimmed some of their under-performing new series.

Not surprisingly, ABC didn’t strike oil with Blood & Oil. The Chace Crawford series immediately stumbled out of the gate and is the weak link on the network’s Sunday night line-up. The show has been trimmed from 13 episodes to 10. The remaining shows should take the show into early December. This way, ABC can start afresh in the new year. Find out below what else has been reduced.

FOX Debuts Retro The X-Files Promo

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The new promo doesn’t actually include any footage from The X-Files revival, but it’s my favorite yet. FOX goes for a retro Mad Men-esque approach this time around, featuring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as animated figures with their voices playing in the background. William B. Davis’s Cigarette-Smoking Man also makes an appearance in the fun promo.

The X-Files kicks off with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016. Check out the new promo titled “Ask Yourself” below.
