Beginning next week, HBO begins its ten-week special Beyonce: X10. The musical mini-series will air four-minute clips preceding a brand-new True Blood episode. Based on the newly-released trailer by the network, the special looks to be a visual feast. The angles and slo-motion effects looking promising.

Performance highlights from the show will include “Blow/Cherry,” “Drunk in Love,” “Ghost/Haunted,” “Flawless/Yoncé,” “Get Me Bodied/Baby Boy/Diva,” “Girls,” “Heaven,” “Partition,” “Why Don’t You Love Me?” and “XO.” The Mrs. Carter World Tour consisted of 132 concerts in 27 countries and 69 cities.

HBO Pairs Beyonce Up With True Blood

Last time Beyonce collaborated with HBO, she gave the network its most-viewed music special since 2003. Life Is But a Dream drew 1.8 million viewers the night it premiered and grossed a total of 8.9 million viewers. It’s no wonder HBO wants to stay in the Beyonce business.

The network announced a concert miniseries dubbed Beyonce: X10. Couldn’t make the Mrs. Carter World Tour? No worries. The 10-episode series will feature weekly performances each about four minutes long which will air beginning June 29 before each episode of True Blood.

Watch HBO’s True Blood Farewell Retrospective

In: Donovan, TV Shows
true-blood-retrospective

Just in case you missed it Sunday, HBO has uploaded it’s True Blood special promoting the final season. A Farewell to Bon Temps Retrospective Show features the main cast and creator Alan Ball during a roundtable discussion about the supernatural series. From crazy fans they’ve encountered to what’s in store for the upcoming season, they reveal all.

Speaking of the final lap, Sam Trammell (Sam) recently disclosed during an interview to expect more nudity. “I get naked as much as I’ve ever gotten naked in this season,” Trammell said. “And there’s a few other people that get naked. Joe (Manganiello) gets naked. We’re not going to do a final season without getting naked.” AMEN!!!!

Also expect the show to shift focus back to the relationship between Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Bill (Stephen Moyer). I’m hoping Sookie ends up either alone or with someone else than Bill. Never was a fan of that romance. Check out the retrospective below.

It’s been flirting with the honor this entire season, but this week it became official. HBO’s fantasy drama, adapted from George R. R. Martin’s series of novels, is now the cable network’s most-watched series ever.

With only two episodes left, the show’s average audience has gone from 18 million to 18.4 million. The most-watched season of The Sopranos set the benchmark in 2002 at just 200,000 viewers less than Game of Throne’s Season 4.

I’m not at all surprised by this latest feat accomplished by the series. All season long it’s been achieving record ratings. Compared to last season, it’s gained 4 million viewers. Are you one of the newbies who jumped on the bandwagon? Game of Thrones‘ Season Four finale airs on June 15.

Adam Shankman is heading to the 1960s once again. The 49-year-old director first visited that decade for the musical Hairspray. This time, his time travels take a more serious turn.

Hollywood Reporter reports HBO picked up a script titled Open City from Shankman and writer David Kajganich about gay rights during the 1960s cultural revolution. With Looking, Behind the Candelabra and The Normal Heart under the network’s belt already, HBO is quickly becoming the unofficial gay network.

Ronnie Lorenzo, one of the original owners of the Stonewall Inn, will serve as a consulting producer. As any self-respecting gay individual knows, the Stonewall Riots in 1969 is considered the birth of the gay rights movement in the United States.

the-normal-heart-ratings

Due to the Memorial Day long weekend, the Nielsen ratings for The Normal Heart were delayed. At long last, the numbers are in.

Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of The Normal Heart netted just under one million viewers for its 9pm airing and scored an additional 434,000 eyeballs for the 11:15 showing. Overall, the movie garnered 1.4 million viewers across its two Sunday airings. The premiere ranks as the fifth most-watched movie of the 17 movies HBO has aired since 2010. Last Memorial Day, the network aired Behind The Candelabra which generated 2.35 million viewers.

As I previously wrote, I enjoyed it despite at times being uncomfortable to watch. I thought it was by far Taylor Kitsch’s best work to date, adding both Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer delivered solid performances with the former deserving an Emmy nod. My only gripe with regards to the cast was Julia Roberts. I felt she was extremely miscast and felt watching her scenes felt like Erin Brokovich the wheelchair version. Did you watch it? Are you surprised by the ratings? Share your thoughts below.

true-blood-season-7-trailer

True Blood meets its true death at the end of Season 7. While the supernatural series hasn’t always provided riveting storylines, I will miss it. It’s a Summer tradition I look forward to every year.

After two eerie video teasers, HBO finally releases the first full trailer for the show’s upcoming season. Given that it’s the final stretch, I fully expect it to be bloodier and deadlier than previous years. No one will be safe. “People blame me for what’s happened to this town,” Sookie (Anna Paquin) says in the clip. “I can’t take anybody else dying because of me.” It’s kinda true though ;)

Check out the trailer below set to The Wright Brothers’ ominous “Blood on My Name.”

HBO Officially Confirms Lisa Kudrow’s Comeback

In: Donovan, TV Shows
the-comeback-hbo-renewed

After weeks of rumors, HBO finally confirmed one of Hollywood’s worst kept secrets. Almost ten years after it aired its inaugural season, The Comeback is returning for a second lap. The much-loved series starring Lisa Kudrow generated low ratings but gathered an avid cult following. It even scored three Primetime Emmy Award nominations including Outstanding Lead Actress for Kudrow.

“It was almost too fun play Valerie Cherish the first time around,” Kudrow added in the announcement. “I look forward to revisiting this resilient and ironically self-unaware character.”

The series will pick back up with Cherish, who thinks she has things all figured out this time. The six-episode Season 2 will air later this Fall on the network. Kudrow and Sex and The City creator Michael Patrick King will serve as the show’s executive producer, along with Scandal star Dan Bucatinsky. The latter also appeared onscreen during the first season along with future Twilight star, Kellan Lutz.

Are you glad HBO resurrected the series? If you could, what other show from the TV graveyard would you revive? Sound off below.
