Last month we learned that HBO was producing a new Sex and the City-type show that features gay men and today we learn that the show has officially been picked up by the network. Broadway-turned-TV star Jonthan Groff will be the lead character on this new as-yet untitled TV show … which sounds really good to me. I’ve enjoyed Groff‘s work on both Broadway and on TV so I’m really looking forward to his attempt at starring on a show of his own. Click below to learn more about this new series. More »

Man, I Hope This Show Doesn't Suck
Earlier this week we got our first look at promo images from NBC‘s new Dracula TV series, which will premiere this Fall and will star Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Today we get our first look at the first trailer for the new limited series. As you can see in the embed above, a few liberties have been taken with the original source material, written by Bram Stoker. Based on this first look, I am not only intrigued … I am excited to see more. I’ve been a big fan of Rhys Meyers for some time now so I have no doubt that he will make an excellent Dracula. The fact that this series was produced by the same folks responsible for Downton Abbey makes me quite comfortable that this new incarnation of Dracula will do very well. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. Does this look like a vampire show that you would watch weekly?

Blink And You Miss It
On Sunday we learned that Justin Bieber was scheduled to make his animated debut on The Simpsons later that night and today, in case you missed it (and honestly, if you blinked at the right moment you probably did miss it) you can watch his Simpsons debut below. JB‘s appearance on the show was short … very short. As you can see in the screencaps and video below, Bieber was turned away from Bart Simpson‘s 10-and-Below Talent Show because, of course, The Biebs is over 10 years old. That was the gag, seriously. Click below to see Bieber in animated action … I mean, let’s be real, you know you want to see. More »

Season 2, Episodes 21 & 22
You know. There was some point mid-season in Revenge where I was like, ‘Hmmm, I dunno that I’m gonna watch the third season.‘ I think many of us felt like things had kinda fallen off a bit, storylines were less revenge-y and even though it was still fun, it just wasn’t the same as season one (it never is!). Well, last night the two hour season premiere went down and any plans I might have had for not watching the show in the fall got totally shut down. Last night was insaaaannnnneeeee! The deaths! The lies! And friggen Patrick! Click inside for more!
