the-voice-season-7-finale

The Voice ended Season 7 with a bang. It was probably the best finale in the show’s history even though my guy (Chris Jamison) didn’t take the title. Thankfully the fantastic performances didn’t make me feel like I wasted two hours given the outcome.

Speaking of the Season 7 winner, Craig Wayne Boyd’s win isn’t at all surprising. With Adam Levine having three acts in the finals, I’m sure Maroon 5 fans were split on who to back while Blake Shelton’s didn’t have the same dilemma. I still have high hopes that Jamison will become the show’s first bona fide superstar.

Taking to the stage before the final results were Bruno Mars who rocked out gold hair curlers (LOL) to sing his hot new track “Uptown Funk,” Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson (who looked gorgeous), Hozier, Jessie J, Fall Out Boy and Meghan Trainor. However, the best number of the night came courtesy of Shelton.

Throughout the night, the show poked fun at the judges. When it came to Shelton, producers edited his confessionals to create a hilarious cover of MC Hammer’s ubiquitous hit, “Can’t Touch This.” It’s definitely must-see television. Check out all the performances below and weigh in if you agree with the results.

peter-pan-live-ratings

Based on reviews and Twitter feedback, Allison Williams’ turn in Peter Pan Live! was much better received than Carrie Underwood’s performance in The Sound of Music. However, that didn’t translate into ratings. NBC’s three-hour musical production delivered 9.1 million viewers and a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating, down 51 percent from last year’s live musical event.

“We’re very pleased with the Peter Pan ratings and it was a great night for NBC. We won every hour, which hasn’t happened on Thursday with entertainment programming since a year ago,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a statement (via THR). “I’m proud to be part of a company that takes chances and creates big events, and that’s exactly what we’re going to continue to do. We didn’t expect to reach the same rating as The Sound of Music since that was the first live movie event of its kind in over 50 years. But the high wire act of Peter Pan was a joy for everyone involved and I take my hat off to Allison Williams, Christopher Walken, the entire company, and our incredible directors and producers for three months of the hardest work I’ve ever seen. I love these live events and we’re already working on putting the next one together.”

While her acting wasn’t as wooden, let’s face it, Williams isn’t as big of a draw as Underwood. To boot, NBC’s decision to pick Peter Pan was a little odd. Though popular in its own right, it isn’t as beloved and well known as The Sound of Music or some other musical production the network could’ve gone with.

Myself, I haven’t watched the entire show yet but from the few moments I saw, I was impressed with the production. Sets look great and Walken looked fantastic. His tap dance segment was a joy to watch. No wonder his performance was mostly universally praised. Check out Tivo’s top five moments from the show below, based on their measurements.

2015-golden-globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back for a third time to host the Golden Globes. Hopefully, their stint doesn’t end as a trilogy and somehow NBC convinces them to sign on for more years. Not only is their turn well received by critics, but by viewers as well. Last year saw a 10-year high for the telecast.

The 2015 Golden Globes air live on January 11 on NBC. Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Greer Grammer was recently named Miss Golden Globe 2015 while George Clooney is this year’s recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

For the first promo, the comedic duo joke about what they’re wearing for the big night. Both spout out hilarious nonsensical fashion jargon complete with faux designer names. Check it out below.

Netflix Snags Tina Fey’s NBC Comedy

unbreakable-kimmy-schmidt

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was originally slated to debut midseason on NBC. The peacock network gave Fey a straight-to-series commitment for her new project when it ordered it earlier this year. So, it’s a little puzzling why it’s moving to Netflix. It’s not like the network has a riches in successful comedies on their schedule.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to debut Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt exclusively on Netflix, which has proven to be such an outstanding place for distinctive, original programming,” Fey and Carlock said in a statement. “Happily, we will still collaborate with our longtime partners at Universal Television to fulfill Netflix’s two-season order. We grew up at NBC and will continue to develop broadcast projects with them as well. We found the inspiration for this series in Ellie Kemper’s shining all-American face, and we know that she and Kimmy Schmidt have found their best possible home at Netflix.”

All 13 episodes of the first season will be available to stream sometime in March 2015. Ellie Kemper, of The Office and Bridesmaids fame, plays a woman who starts a new life in New York City after leaving a doomsday cult. Tituss Burgess, Lauren Adams, Sara Chase, Sol Miranda, Carol Kane and Tina’s former 30 Rock colleague Jane Krakowski round out the cast.

NBC Resurrecting Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous

Prep yourselves for more champagne wishes and caviar dreams. NBC is resurrecting Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with Nick Cannon hosting the reboot. If there’s someone who could give viewers an insider look at some opulent lifestyles, it’s the former Mr. Mariah Carey ;)

The syndicated hit aired from 1984 to 1995. Robin Leach gave viewers a weekly peek at the abodes of your favorite celebrities. This isn’t the first attempt to revive the series. Back in 2013, Style Network (now rebranded as Esquire) developed a reboot, coincidentally enough with the America’s Got Talent host also attached. However, the project never moved forward. Some might also argue that MTV’s Cribs was pretty much the same show but with cooler and quicker edits.

peter-pan-minnie-driver

NBC can’t get enough of Minnie Driver. The 44-year-old actress currently stars in About A Boy and this December she’ll be pulling double duty for the peacock network. She’s set to narrate Peter Pan Live! and also play the role of a grown-up Wendy Darling.

“We’re thrilled to have Minnie as part of this Peter Pan adventure,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment. “She appears in the final emotional scene when Peter returns to the Darling home years later only to realize Wendy is now grown up and has a daughter of her own, but you’ll also hear her voice throughout the movie since Adult Wendy is also our narrator. She’s a classy addition to our wonderful cast.”

It feels like forever since the last season of Celebrity Apprentice aired. After a year break, the reality guilty pleasure returns on January 4, 2015 on NBC. I hate to admit it, but I’m quite excited even though The Donald gives me major gas.

Included in the bunch are a couple of Real Housewives, a former Cosby kid, musicians, Olympians, reporters, former heartthrobs and reality television’s most polarizing mom. If you don’t recognize many of the faces in the photo above, check out the entire cast below.

Since leaving the show in 1993, Chris Rock has surprisingly only hosted Saturday Night Live once. That was back in 1996 with The Wallflowers as the musical guest. This weekend, the 49-year-old comedian returned for a second time.

Rock kicked off the show with a controversial opening monologue. He delivered jokes about the Boston Marathon bombings, anti-gun regulations, the commercialization of Christmas and 9/11. Rock joked the corporate sponsor of the rebuilt Twin Towers should be Target. Too soon?

The political trend continued throughout the show. ISIS appeared in pitch perfect parody of ABC’s hit show Shark Tank. The terrorist group were seeking a $400 million investment for a 1 percent stake in their organization. The cast perfectly embodied the sharks.

Another highlight was a mock advert promoting a new drug called Swiftamine. It’s targeted at adults who experience vertigo after enjoying a Taylor Swift song.

Check out the hilarious clip and the others below, along with a medley performed by the one and only Prince. In a first for the show, he performed one eight-minute performance as opposed to taking to the stage twice for two four-minute sets.
