"I'm very excited"
Last week we learned that there was talk of extending Britney Spears‘s concert residency at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV, titled Britney: Piece of Me, for two more years due to very successful ticket sales and today we learn that the residency extension has OFFICIALLY been confirmed. Britney made an appearance on Good Morning Britain this week, while she was promoting the launch of her lingerie line The Intimate Collection by Britney Spears, and in her interview she confirmed the happy news!

Season Four, Episode One
It feels good to be back in the arms of Shonda Rhimes, am I right? Last night Shondaland Thursdays kicked off, and I had a blast. I hadn’t thought much about how this Season Four premiere for Scandal would go, but I was pleasantly surprised by some things… aaand disappointed by others. I’ve always loved this show, but I find myself getting more and more critical with each season. But I critique out of love! I hope you guys have had a chance to watch it, and I can’t wait to recap with you all. Click inside for more!

But where are the LULz?
Earlier this week we got to see a bunch of really funny promo videos that feature actor Chris Pratt as host of the 40th season premiere of Saturday Night Live this weekend. Today we get to see the just-released promo videos that feature Chris alongside this weekend’s musical guest Ariana Grande and, sadly, there ain’t a lot of funny to be had. It should be a fun episode, tho … I hope.
JHUD is the Truth
All day I’ve been in Scandal-ville (a gallery here, another one here), but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Throwback Thursday! Jennifer Hudson‘s new album JHUD is getting ready to drop, and sometimes I forget how much I’m kind of obsessed with her. J-Hud is amazing. And the whole world realized that when Dreamgirls came out back in 2006, and she had movie-goers on their feet with that epic I Am Telling You scene. CHILLLLllllls. And the rest of the soundtrack was pretty incredible too. Click inside for more!
Everything old is new again
Netflix has announced that they are going into production of a new animated series based on the ’80s toy-line the Popples … which is kinda cool and totally random. There have been many ’80s TV shows/toy lines that have been rebooted for this new generation but bringing back the Popples seems so out of left field to me. Popples, as you may recall, were stuffed animals that could be folded up into fluffy balls and they already had their own animated cartoon back in the mid-80s. I guess Netflix believes the time is right for Popples to make a comeback. Click below to see what the new Popples will look like and find out when the new series will debut on Netflix. More »

DON'T FORGET 'SCANDAL' SEASON 4 PREMIERES TONIGHT
In case you are unaware, the 4th season of Scandal premieres on ABC TONIGHT and to promote the show’s return, three of the show’s biggest stars made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn and Scott Foley sat down to chat with Ellen about the awkwardness of all the kissing they have to engage in to not-so-subtly remind us that there will be LOTS OF KISSING when Scandal returns tonight. Check out the video above to see our fave Scandal threesome doing great promo on Ellen and DON’T FORGET TO TUNE IN TO WATCH THE SEASON 4 PREMIERE OF SCANDAL TONIGHT!
I have no words for the amount of nail-biting, live-tweeting, and screen-shotting madness that will be going down tonight. As we impatiently await the Scandal finale, I relive last year’s magic—and the magic that was me interviewing some cast members (Guillermo, Darby, Jeff, George, and Josh FTW). The only other way to get ready for tonight is with this amazing gallery of photos from the cast, compiled by the even amazing-er PITNBr Iris. THANK YOU IRIS, YOU STAY GIVING ME LIIIiiiife. And, everyone, peep the gallery for more!
P.S. You’ll see a new face in the gallery. Asante Jones now has a recurring role on Scandal. He’s also MY FRIGGEN COUSIN. But like, the special kind of cousin, where our Moms are twins so, it’s a REALLY big deal. #NBD #ReallyBigDeal
Rumor has it, it's almost a done deal
Last week we learned that E! has made the decision to move forward with their show Fashion Police without Joan Rivers and today we learn that Joan‘s BFF Kathy Griffin may be closing in on a deal to take her place on the show. Even tho the casting hasn’t yet been taken up officially, The Hollywood Reporter magazine is reporting that Kathy is high on the list of replacements. Honestly, I can’t think of anyone better to step into Joan‘s Fashion Police shoes than Kathy Griffin. More »
PRATT IS GOING TO RULE!
Earlier this month we learned that actor, and everyone’s favorite Hollywood “It” Guy, Chris Pratt has been tapped to host the season premiere episode of Saturday Night Live and today, ahead of this weekend’s 40th season premiere, we get to see Chris‘s just released SNL promos. The video embedded above is over 6 minutes long but, for the most part, it’s hilarious and worth watching in full. Not only is Chris Pratt adorably funny in these promos but you can tell from just this video clip that he will do an EXCELLENT job as host of SNL this weekend. Check out the video above and laugh … and lurve.
It's Back to Back, actually
It’s been a few days since we’ve seen a new video teaser for the upcoming new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show but after we were terrorized with that video featuring Twisty the Clown, well, I guess we deserved a few days off. Today, tho, we get to see the newest teaser video for Freak Show which, thankfully, isn’t as horrifying as that clown video STILL is. Click above to watch the latest teaser and be reminded, the new season of AHS: Freak Show premieres on October 8.
