HBO Releases First ‘Comeback’ Teaser Video

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The series return of The Comeback is almost upon us. Nearly ten years after its inaugural run, Lisa Kudrow reprises the beloved role of sitcom star Valerie Cherish who uses reality TV to become relevant again. The six-episode second season will begin airing sometime in November.

HBO just released the first teaser trailer which shows Valerie surrounded by the paparazzi, trying to get to an unseen person. I’m thinking it’s Juna (Malin Akerman) since it appears Valerie is mouthing ‘baby girl’ in the clip. Check out the video below.

True Blood Series Finale Scores Season High Ratings

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The series finale might’ve not been universally loved by True Blood fans, but the final episode netted the vampire drama’s biggest ratings of the season. 4.1 million viewers tuned in for the initial airing which was about even with last year’s season finale. Including a rebroadcast, the total audience for True Blood Sunday night was 4.5 million. When including all forms of viewing, the HBO supernatural series has averaged 9.4 million viewers season long.

What did you think of the finale? The polarizing ending wasn’t the most exciting episode but I didn’t hate it as much as most people. I’m just glad Sookie didn’t end up with Bill. But having her end up with a random faceless man wasn’t great either. I did, though, appreciate that most of the popular characters found happiness. Albeit boring, but I’m a sucker for a happy ending. Check out an “After The Finale” featurette below which HBO uploaded after the final episode aired and share your thoughts on the final season and the finale afterward.

beyonce-on-the-run-bang-bang

Beyonce goes retro in the second trailer for her forthcoming HBO special, On The Run. Mrs. Carter covers the 1966 classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” in the black and white promo.

Dressed as a glamorous jazz singer, Bey serenades her hubby and touring partner, Jay-Z as he smokes a stogie. The clip then cuts to footage of the duo’s joint tour which is full of tight choreography, stunts and, naturally, hair flips.

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” was penned by Sonny Bono and recorded by both Nancy Sinatra and his then-wife Cher. It’s clear, Beyonce was more inspired with the former with her rendition. Check out all three versions below and weigh on who gives a more deadlier performance.

HBO Renews The Leftovers For A Second Season

Despite declining ratings since its premiere and painfully slow storytelling, HBO has renewed The Leftovers for a second season.

“We are thrilled to bring back The Leftovers for a second season with the exceptional talents of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta,” says Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming. “It has been truly exciting to see the overwhelming response to their provocative and original storytelling. We look forward to continuing the journey as the show delves deeper into the lives of those who remain.”

While I was initially intrigued by the show’s premise, I grew tired quite quickly. It’s so depressing and features no likeable characters. Since my partner loves it, I only half-watch it now in the background. Are you still watching or did you break up with it already?

The one positive thing about the show’s renewal is that hopefully viewers are treated with more scenes of Justin Theroux jogging. How distracting was that bulge? Even co-star Liv Tyler talked about its mesmerizing quality. #jenniferanistonisoneluckybitch. Check out an image of Theroux’s beast lurking underneath his jogging pants below.

Entertainment Weekly highlights television’s best 25 characters for their latest issue. To celebrate, the publication convinced two actors to take on different personas for two collector covers.

Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus swap roles for a gender-bending shoot. Both actors do drag to channel each other’s popular characters on House of Cards and Veep respectively.

Julia dressed as HoC’s Frank Underwood is far more convincing than Kevin as Veep‘s Selina Meyer. Spacey does not make for one pretty girl. Check out the other cover below.

During their panel at San Diego Comic-Con, HBO announced nine new cast members joining Game of Thrones for Season Five. They range from veteran actors to relative newbies.

Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), newcomers Toby Sebastian and Nell Tiger Free, DeObia Oparei (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Enzo Cilenti (Rome), Jessica Henwick (North by Northhamptonshire), Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (The Whistleblower), Academy nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) and the legendary Jonathan Pryce (Ronin) will play key roles in the upcoming season. Watch the video below to see what parts they’ll be taking on for GoT.

In addition to the big news, the show shared a blooper reel from Season 4. It’s so odd seeing the actors laugh and show their lighthearted sides given the dramatic nature of the series. Pedro Pascal who plays Prince Oberyn almost sets himself on fire. Check out all the hijinks and line flubbing from your favorites including Kit Harington below.

The 2014 Primetime Emmy Nominations & Snubs

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced this morning at the TV Academy in North Hollywood. HBO, once again, reigns supreme beating out rival networks with 99 total nominations. Silicon Valley, The Normal Heart, Veep, True Detective and naturally Game of Thrones all being recognized by the Academy. Behind it were CBS with 47 noms, NBC with 46, and FX with 45.

In terms of individual shows, Game of Thrones is this year’s most nominated program. Close behind were Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven with 18 and 17 nominations respectively. I was pleasantly surprised to see Adam Driver (Girls) and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) get some love.

On the flip side, Modern Family‘s Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara were snubbed. Also missing out were The Blacklist‘s James Spader and The Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany. How many characters does the latter have to play to get some Emmy lovin’.

The Americans, Sons of Anarchy and The Good Wife also missed out in the big categories. The latter’s omission certainly hurts given no broadcast shows made the Best Drama cut. Arguably, the CBS program had one of its best creative years ever.

Winners will be announced at the 66th annual Primetime Emmys ceremony on August 25, to be hosted by Seth Meyers. Check out the rest of the nominations below.

HBO began their 10-week Beyonce music miniseries last night before True Blood. Kicking off things was Bey performing “Ghost/Haunted” off her multi-platinum selling self-titled album.

Each week, the network will air four-minute segments filmed during her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Check out the clip below which features a dancer popping up from underneath the judge. Unlike Michelle Williams during the Super Bowl, his landing isn’t nearly as shaky :) #godblessmichelle
