Confession time. I never checked out The Comeback back when it first aired in 2005. When HBO announced it was resurrecting the series, I binge-watched the first season to catch up before the second season. I’m officially a fan of Valerie Cherish and can’t wait to see her new adventures.

The Comeback makes its comeback on November 9 on HBO with Lisa Kudrow, Dan Bucatinsky, Kellan Lutz and Malik Akerman all reprising their roles. The network unveiled the first official extended trailer for the cult favorite’s return and it looks as hilarious as ever, if not more. Check it out below.

For the past several months, everyone and their agent has been reportedly linked to star in Season 2 of True Detective. In Colin Farrell’s case, those rumors are true. In an interview with Ireland’s Sunday World, the 38-year-old confirmed his involvement with the hit HBO series.

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”

“I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

Believe it or not, someone said ‘no’ to Ryan Murphy. Even more shocking, it’s HBO. Definitely surprising given their recent successful and critically-acclaimed collaboration with The Normal Heart. The network revealed it opted out of Murphy’s sexually-charged drama, Open.

“After such a triumphant collaboration with The Normal Heart, everyone felt that Open was not the right next step for all involved,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “However, we fully expect to work together again in the near future.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter’s sources, HBO wanted to tweak the drama, but Murphy didn’t want to change the pilot. Open was described as “a multicharacter exploration of the complex, ever evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.”

As Gretchen Wieners would say, “This is so FETCH!!!.”

Daniel Franzese who played too-gay-to-function Damian in 2004′s Mean Girls is heading to San Francisco. The 36-year-old joins Looking for its second season.

The Hollywood Reporter reports he’ll have a multi-episode arc on the HBO series. His character Eddie who works in the San Fran non-profit community will be a new love interest. For whom, that hasn’t been disclosed yet.

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

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 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.
