Coming September 22
The debut season of Scream Queens will premiere on Fox on September 22 and today, courtesy of show creator Ryan Murphy, we get our first look at the “super-sized” main title sequence to the show. As you can see above, this opening title sequence is really stylized and, honestly, is very cool looking. Each of the main actors are introduces in between scenes of the show’s characters screaming alongside the villainous devil character who will torment them on the show. I still have my doubts about Scream Queens overall but I must admit that I do like this opening main title sequence for the show. Scream Queens premieres on September 22.

Yay Chaka, Nick & Tamar! Boo Paula, Everyone Else
A new television season means another round of the competitive reality TV show Dancing with the Stars is upon us and today we learn which stars will be competing for the Mirrorball Trophy for the forthcoming 21st season of the show. Earlier this week it was leaked that Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin), Nick Carter (of Backstreet Boys) and Paula Deen (noted racist) have been added to the DWTS season 21 cast. Today, on Good Morning America, the full cast line-up for the show was revealed which includes legendary singer Chaka Khan, reality TV star/singer Tamar Braxton, former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak and others. Honestly, Dancing with the Stars isn’t a show that I watch at all but as a pop culture fan, I can’t help but be interested in the folks they manage to dig up to feature on the show. Click below to see the full list of stars competing this season on DWTS and find out which professional dancers they have been partnered with. More »

'Sleepwalk' / 'Towhead' / 'Jeepers Peepers'
Just over a week ago, we got to see the first 2 promo videos for the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Hotel premiering on FX in October. Today we get to see 3 more promo videos, courtesy of show creator Ryan Murphy. The first of these 3 promos is embedded above and it is titled Sleepwalk. The other 2 promos are embedded below, Towhead and Jeepers Peepers. As you can see, each of these new promos is creepy as f*ck … as we’ve come to expect from AHS promo videos. We still have a few weeks to go before AHS: Hotel premieres on October 7 so we will likely get more promos in the near future. The lead up to new seasons of AHS is always fun … I just hope the pay off is worth it once the new season gets underway.
Back in mid-July, we learned the very exciting news that Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banshees was asked to compose a piece of music for the series finale episode of Hannibal. Over the weekend, that episode of Hannibal — The Wrath of the Lamb — aired here in the US and we finally got to hear this new piece of music. Siouxsie collaborated with Brian Reitzell on the song Love Crime and as you can hear above, it is a hauntingly beautiful song that not only speaks to the dark beauty of the show but also reminds us of Siouxsie‘s immeasurable talent. Click the embed above to hear the song in full and then click below to read the lyrics. More »
Have you all been watching HBO‘s new miniseries Show Me a Hero? If not, please get on that. Now, it may have taken me a minute to come to the conclusion that Oscar Isaac Hernández is hot, but I have now arrived. And damn. I was editing this interview one of our writers at Paste did with him, and I’m not gonna lie—when I read about his nationality (Guatemalan, Cuban and French… Lordt), a lightbulb went off and I was all, “Ohhh, is that what it is?” As in, “Is that why I’ve been trying to figure out where he came from and why I find him so ridiculously attractive, even when he’s playing former Yonkers mayor Nick Wasicsko?” So yes. Please enjoy this gallery of hotness featuring the incredibly hot Oscar Isaac. Who is hot.

"For you nor I can hold back time"
Back in March we learned that the forthcoming 6th season of the ITV series Downton Abbey will be the last season of the series and today we get our first look at the first trailer for the final season of the show. The 6th and final season of Downton Abbey will premiere in the UK on September 20 and as you can see in the very emotional trailer above, there will be a lot of goodbyes to come this final season. I must admit that I am not totally caught up with the series so I don’t know how the last season ended but I think I know where things are going. I’m not ready to say goodbye to Downton Abbey just yet so fortunately, I have a whole season of the show (plus the beloved Xmas special) to look forward to. The final season of Downton Abbey won’t air here in the US on PBS until next year but I know I can’t wait that long to watch. Come September 20, I’ll be tuning in with the lucky folks in the UK to watch the 6th and final season of Downton Abbey.

Whatever, I'm psyched
Yesterday I asked you all not to judge me RE my obsession with the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood super trailer. One of you has already publicly judged me, but that’s cool. It’s cool. You may be forced to judge me again, as there’s another reality show headed our way, and I confess that I’ll probably be tuning into this one as well. Amber Rose and her BFFL Blac Chyna are taking their wild antics and sexy sexified sexy party times to MTV in a new series I didn’t know I needed… but I think I kinda do. Click inside for more!

He's never even seen like one episode...
Listen. Sometimes people arrive late to the party. People like me, who are currently watching both The Sopranos and Six Feet Under. Don’t judge us! We’re fine. And then there are people like Robert De Niro, who still haven’t shown up to the party, and aren’t necessarily convinced that they need to make an appearance. De Niro shocked the world when he confessed recently that, after starring in all those gangster flicks, he has yet to watch the HBO series. Click inside for more!
Circoc bottles flying, endless cat fights and the first gay couple
I can feel it. I can feel you all judging me, but I promise you it’s not as harshly as I’m judging myself right now. But here’s the thing—you don’t know me, you don’t know my struggle! I have tried to quit this show before, I trieeeddd. I missed the entire last season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, but Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood was so horrifyingly bad/amazingly entertaining, that I can’t miss it. I CAN’T! I’m obsessed with Lil Fizz. I’m obsessed with Moniece. And it’s a mess. I’m a mess. Please watch this super trailer so that I’m not alone in this. Also, they have added the [incredibly hot] First Gay Couple of the series (although, technically, Kalenna of LHHATL was first… which shows I know way too much about this whole movement). Peep the video for more!
Reports of her 'AHS' retirement
have been greatly exaggerated are complete b.s.
Back in October of 2013, Jessica Lange revealed to the world her desire to “retire” from acting and give up her lead role on the FX drama American Horror Story. Then, we learned out that her retirement from acting wouldn’t be absolute, that she would take on acting roles that appealed to her from time to time. Then, we found out that Jessica has teamed up with AHS creator Ryan Murphy for a Broadway show. Then, we found out that Jessica has decided to remain open to appearing on AHS again. Today we learn that she will definitely be appearing in the new season of the show, American Horror Story: Hotel. The official Facebook page for the show made the announcement that Lange will be “checking in” this season … which really means that she never really retired from the show after all. More »
