Chips off the ol' block
A year ago this month we first learned that Disney is planning a TV movie that will focus on the teenage children of some of the greatest Disney villains, in June we got our first look at the young cast of actors who will play these Disney villain kids as well as our first look at actress Kristin Chenoweth in character as Maleficent. Today we get to check out the first teaser trailer for Disney Descendants … which doesn’t really so much of anything but does work as an adequate tease. Check it out above, see what you think.

Prepare for the second half of season 2
Back in October we learned that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Michelle Trachtenberg had signed on to join the cast of Sleepy Hollow on Fox and today we get our first look at Michelle in character on the show. Trachtenberg plays First Lady Abigail Adams on the supernatural TV series in a part, I’m guessing, will be more of a guest spot rather than a full-on castmember. The other photos in the gallery are promos from the forthcoming new eps of the show which returns on January 5 for the second half of the second season. Have a look and get ready, Sleepy Hollow will be back among us soon.
I really need to start watching this show, right?
So, no, I haven’t watched a single episode of Hannibal… yet. But last year I edited all of the show’s reviews for Paste, and I was consistently like, WTF is this show, and when am I going to get my life in order and start watching it? Well, soon. And one name I remember from the reviews is Michael Pitt‘s, because our critic was really impressed with his performance as Mason Verger. But Pitt is bowing out of the role, and has already been replaced. Click inside for more!
A reality show depicting actual hard-working, intelligent women
How did this show real me in? Well, Diane Von Furstenberg‘s House of DVF has to be one of the only non-trashy, entertaining, women-based reality shows on television—and that is quite a feat. It seems like the method for a lot of these shows is very basic: let’s put a group of seemingly well-dressed women together in any scenario whatsoever because seemingly well-dressed women will always try to tear each other apart. House of DVF was one of the first reality shows where I felt like—while there was drama—it wasn’t violent, trashy, or cringe-worthy, and there was actually a lot to learn from the women on the show—especially those helping Diane Von Furstenberg choose her next Global Ambassador.

Before Ryan Adams took the stage at The Wiltern Theater last night to perform the final show of his 2014 tour, he joined his friend Jenny Lewis on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live for a performance of her song She’s Not Me from her new album The Voyager. Ryan and Jenny have been performing this song together on dates they’ve played together this tour and last night they bestowed their gift to the rest of the country on national TV. Click the embed above to see watch Jenny and Ryan in action. They make a really great duo. I hope they continue to make more beautiful music together.

From Here to Eternity
Back in April, we learned that Stephen Colbert was selected by CBS to replace David Letterman as the host of The Late Show when he retires next year — which meant that Colbert‘s own TV show, The Colbert Report, had to end. Last night, the final episode of The Colbert Report aired on Comedy Central and it went out with a massive bang. Stephen Colbert pulled together a massively impressive group of celebrities (like Bryan Cranston, Elijah Wood and Willie Nelson), politicians (like President Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger and Senator Cory Booker), luminaries (like Charlie Rose, Katie Couric and Smaug) and Big Bird for a live musical performance that is truly a must-see. Click below to watch the performance and Colbert‘s absolutely final gag/skit and see how The Colbert Report came to a final end. More »
Way back in July, we first heard rumblings that actor Neil Patrick Harris might be making a guest appearance on the current season of American Horror Story: Freak Show. In October, we learned that NPH officially signed on to appear on the show and earlier this month we learned he filmed his scenes. Today we get to see the new promo video for the next episode of Freak Show which will feature Neil‘s debut on the show. AHS won’t return with this new ep, titled Magical Thinking, until January 7 but this minute-long preview video gives us a nice taste of what to expect.
SPOILER ALERT WARNING
Back in August we got our first look at the season 29 cast of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water and last night, the sole surviving winner was revealed on live TV. After all these years, I am still a really big fan of the Surivor franchise and I watched every single episode of this season religiously. As per usual, this season entertained and annoyed me to no end but, thankfully, the most deserving players made it all the way to the end. I loved that the final 3 were all women because, truly, the ladies played the best game this season. And, of the last three ladies, only one truly stood apart as the ONLY player deserving of the million dollar prize. Click below to find out if Jaclyn, Natalie or Missy was voted the Sole Survivor of San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. More »
