"Earth doesn't have just one hero anymore"
Last month, CBS released the first trailer for their upcoming Supergirl TV series which will debut on the network this fall. Today we get to see a second, shorter international trailer for the series that is far superior to the first trailer, IMHO. This second trailer is shorter and more concise than the first trailer and as you can hear in the embed above, it features much more exciting and non-sappy romcom music. Many people were turned off by the first trailer’s use of schmaltzy music which they felt made Supergirl seem weak or not serious. The music featured in this second trailer is very exciting and much better suited to a superhero series. Have a look above and see what you think. I think you’re really gonna love what you see here.

"You ever get the feeling that you were meant to do something extraordinary?"
Earlier this week we got to see a new teaser for the upcoming sequel series Heroes Reborn coming to NBC this September and today we get to see the just-released first full trailer for the show. As you may already be aware, Heroes Reborn will star members from the original cast of Heroes alongside a new group of actors. This trailer gives us our first look at many of the characters that we will get to know when the series returns on September 24. Check out this trailer for Heroes Reborn and get your first sense of what we can expect this fall. Does this look like a Heroes series that you will watch from week to week?

Amy Poehler made a special appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to participate in the beloved Saturday Night Live bit Really? With Seth & Amy … and you can watch video of her appearance in full above. Really? With Seth & Amy was a regular staple on SNL when Seth and Amy co-hosted Weekend Update together and it was one of my fave bits on the show. This time around Seth and Amy were inspired by one Sports Illustrated magazine writer’s dig at all women’s sports to revive Really? With Seth & Amy for laughs. As fun as this video is, I wish the two would’ve skewered more things than just one SI writer’s idiocy. Now that Seth and Amy have done this once … maybe we can count on more installments of Really? With Seth & Amy in the future ;)
"I've written the book and it’s a jukebox musical"
The iconic 1995 film Clueless is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year which was marked back in April by the special edition release of the soundtrack on vinyl. We learn today that Clueless is being adapted into a stage musical and that director Amy Heckerling has written the book for the show. OMG. Heckerling sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight to dish a bit about the forthcoming Clueless: The Musical and as you can see below, she seems very excited to help bring this “jukebox musical” to life on the musical theater stage. OMG. Clueless: The Musical … couldn’t you just die?! More »
Cordelia Chase grows up
Last month we got our first look at Ryan Murphy‘s new Fox TV series Scream Queens, which looks like a mix between the Scream movie and the Pretty Little Liars TV series, debuting on the network this fall. Today we learn that former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel actress Charisma Carpenter has been added to the cast in the role of Ariana Grande‘s character’s mother. As a longtime BtVS fan, I am LOVING that Charisma is finding new work on network television. Altho it will be a bit strange for some (me included) to see the former Cordelia Chase as the mother of a grown young woman, I have to admit … her casting does make the prospect of watching Scream Queens much more enticing.

But, "All suitors are welcome."
Just a few days ago, we learned the upsetting news that NBC has decided to cancel their brilliant series Hannibal at the conclusion of the third season, which is airing through August on the network now. As soon as news of Hannibal‘s cancellation broke, fans of the show (Fannibals, if you will) have been hoping aloud that the series might find continued life on another network … possibly online … with Netflix being the company being bandied about most often. Today we hear from Hannibal show creator Bryan Fuller about the future of the series and he happily informs us that there has been interest from multiple interested parties in picking up Hannibal for future seasons. Because the show is already partnered with Amazon for online streaming rights, Fuller suggests that Hannibal might live on there … BUT, because other companies are interested in the show as well, all offers are being considered. THIS is amazing news. More »

"Nothing Else Matters"
Back in February we got to check out the first teaser trailer for the forthcoming new season of Heroes Reborn, set to premiere on NBC this fall. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the series that features a beautiful rendition of Metallica‘s song Nothing Else Matters. None of the Heroes characters, either old or new, are seen in this video promo … just scenes from a world wondering Where Are The Heroes? The answer to that question will come when Heroes Reborn airs on NBC this coming TV season. Are you ready?

Live from 'Late Night'
It’s a shame that Saturday Night Live season 40 ended back in May because we, the people, have really missed out on the opportunity for SNL to spoof the story of Rachel Dolezal. But, after almost 2 weeks of the Dolezal craziness, we finally get what we’ve been waiting for. Former SNL writer Seth Meyers invited former SNL castmember Maya Rudolph to appear as a guest on his late night talk show and she busted out the Rachel Dolezal impersonation that has been severely lacking in our popular culture. It’s not a SNL skit but this bit will do, watch the embed above and enjoy.
When the shizz hits the fan
Earlier this month we got to see a bunch of promo photos from the forthcoming premiere season of the Walking Dead spin-off series Fear The Walking Dead, which will air on AMC this summer. Today we get to see a new promo video for the show which is creepy … even tho it doesn’t really show anything. As you may recall, in March we got to see the first promo video for Fear The Walking Dead and that, too, didn’t show much of anything really scary … so it looks like the promo plan is to tease, tease, tease. AMC is also teasing the premiere date of Fear The Walking Dead, telling us only that it will start in August. Still, I’m excited for this new series … it’ll be fun to see how the zombie apocalypse affects Los Angeles, don’t you think?
Season 3 will be the last :(
Even tho I’m still reeling from the news that Britney Spears may have broken up with Charlie Ebersol, now I have to deal with the reality that NBC has decided to cancel their absolutely brilliant TV series Hannibal. I just wrote a post this weekend about how well this new season 3 is going and today we learn that the show will end at the conclusion of this season. You know, I had a feeling that Hannibal‘s days were numbered on NBC. The fact that we got a season 3 was a miracle in and of itself. So, altho it SUCKS really bad that Hannibal has been cancelled, at least we can still savor the current season that will air through August. More »
