Her acting debut!
When The Mindy Project first came out a while back I remember watching the pilot episode, and thinking it looked good. But I didn’t stick with it, and now I must punish myself with a binge watch. Because I officially have to start watching this show. This fall Shonda Rhimes is bringing us Shondaland Thursdays (AKA TGIT) with Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder running back-to-back on ABC. And even with all that going on, she’s still making time to try out new things. The writer/director/creator/my hero will make her acting debut on Mindy Kaling‘s The Mindy Project.

Premiering September 24
We are just about a month away from the premiere of a new season of Survivor on CBS and today we get to meet the cast of 18 people who will compete on the new season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. As you may know, Survivor did a Blood vs. Water season before (pitting teams of loved ones against one another in the game) and because that season was so successful, they’re doing it again. As I understand it, there were supposed to be two same-sex couples in the mix this time but a pair of women had to pull out of the show due to a medical emergency (the pair of same-sex men are in the game). Click the embed above to meet the 9 teams of players this season and get ready, Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water will premiere on CBS on September 24.
What’s under the big top?
Earlier this week we got to see the first TWO video teasers for the upcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Today we get to see the just-released third teaser. In the same vein as the earlier teasers, this new video does a great job reminding us that the freak show world of American Horror Story is a disturbing one. Are you ready? AHS: Freak Show premieres on FX on October 8.
"How is he fitting in with his Rams teammates?"
Michael Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL, is currently hard at work training with his team the St. Louis Rams as they prepare for the forthcoming new football season and was the subject of a “news report” on ESPN‘s SportsCenter yesterday. For some reason, the folks at ESPN thought it would make a good “news report” to focus on Michael Sam‘s locker room showering habits. You see, as an openly gay man, it is important — ESPN believed — to let the world know if/how/when/etc. Michael Sam (a gay man) showers or doesn’t shower with his fellow teammates (presumably straight men). Click the embed above to watch the “news report” in full.
After the segment aired, ESPN was inundated with complaints over the “news report” to the point where ESPN decided to apologize today for airing the segment. You can read their apology below. More »
The First Full Trailer
NBC is really excited about the upcoming 7th season of The Voice and have today released a new trailer that gives us our first look at footage from the new season. As you may know, the upcoming new season of The Voice will feature new judges/coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell alongside long-time judges/coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and this new trailer gives us a taste of how this new panel will interact on the show. I love Pharrell, very much, but I’ll deffo be tuning in to watch Gwen Stefani on my TV every single week. The Voice hit the jackpot with this season’s new judges — they finally brought on people that make me want to watch. Check out the trailer above and get excited! The new season of The Voice premieres on NBC on September 22.

To be directed by Scorsese, and it sounds awesome.
If you watched last night’s 66th Emmy Awards, you probably caught all of the cracks about cable shows running the world. I thought Seth Meyers was really funny—and spot on about the “demise” of network television. Anyway, here’s more proof that HBO grew up to be the cool kid—Martin Scorsese‘s 2010 film Shutter Island will be the next big series to come to the network. Click inside for more!

He will play a "warped" character
A couple of days ago we got to check out the FIRST TWO official teasers for the forthcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show and today we learn a bit of exciting news about the season. Emmy Award-nominated actor Matt Bomer has been added to the cast of Freak Show in a role that creator Ryan Murphy describes as “very warped”. Earlier this month, we learned that Patti LaBelle has been added to the cast but I have to admit, I’m much more excited by the news that Matt Bomber is joining Freak Show. More »
