"Everyone wears a mask"
In December of 2012 I blogged about the upcoming debut of a new Fox TV series titled The Following, which I fell in love with after watching the first 4 episodes. As the debut season unfolded, I was gripped by the drama that took place and I came to expect the surprise twist that would inevitably come at the end of each episode. Altho there were some problems with the show (it’s rare for a new show to be perfect right off the bat), I became a big fan of the show. The season 1 finale episode SEEMED to bring the story to a conclusion but, naturally, we were given some insight as to what we might expect in season 2. The Following will return on Fox on January 19th with its season 2 premiere episode followed by the show’s second episode the following night on January 20. I can’t wait to see where the story will take us in season 2 (I’m curious to see how seemingly “dead” characters will appear in the new season). Click thru the gallery presented here to check out promo photos of the season 2 characters and then click below to see a just-released promo video for The Following. More »

"If you piss me off I'm really competitive"
Entertainment Tonight managed to get an on-camera sit down interview with our dear Britney Spears which will air on the show next week (possibly on multiple episodes). ET released a teaser commercial for the interview and as you can see in the embed above, Britney talks love and life … and answers some pretty interesting questions. The promo claims that Britney is sitting down with “only one show” before her new album Britney Jean is released in a couple of weeks so … this is it, y’all. Check out the commercial and keep your peepers peeped for the full interview to air on ET next week.
"It's really liberating to say 'No' to shit you hate"
Lena Dunham and her madcap of hipster co-stars is coming BACK with a third season of their hit HBO series Girls and today we get to check out the just-released first trailer for the new season. Personally, I find the show very hit or miss … there are things about Girls that I like and there are things about Girls that I hate with a fiery passion. But, any show that can elicit that kind of reaction is probably worth paying attention to, at the very least. Girls season 2 started to irritate me but I watched to the end. I’m invested. This first look at season 3 looks good enough that I will tune in to watch the new season when it debuts in January. The show will return with 2 back-to-back episodes on Sunday January 12. Any Girls fans out there? Are you excited for the show’s return?

Jimmy will host, Justin as musical guest
Saturday Night Live has been delivering pretty killer episodes this season … Kerry Washington slayed, Lady Gaga kicked butt and tonight Josh Hutcherson will bring the LULz. We learn today that BFFs Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon will take over SNL together with Jimmy (a returning SNL alum) will host and Justin will perform as musical guest. BUT, considering how much JT loves to participate in skits whenever he appears on the show (as host, as musical guest or as surprise unannounced guest), I think it’s safe to assume that we will see a lot of Jimmy and JT interaction on their upcoming episode of SNL.

Season 3, Episode 8
I have to say, this has been a pretty excellent week in television. Between Revenge, The Good Wife and Love And Hip Hop: New York (yes, I know… judge me if you will) there has been more drama than I can handle. Then you throw in last night’s Scandal and — whoooo! So. Many. Awesome. Things. It’s as if the media gods are out there trying to apologize for that Kimye video. LMAO… No but seriously. Enough with the small talk, we’ve got to get to this recap.

Miley Cyrus has enjoyed a lot of attention, which resulted in a lot of success this year largely due to her collaborations with MTV in the past few months. First, she became the talk of the planet after she performed on the MTV Video Music Awards. Then she extended her grip on pop culture by releasing attention-grabbing music videos (that aired, I’m sure, on MTV at some point) and a documentary film to coincide with the release of her #1 album BANGERZ. With her 21st birthday tomorrow, Miley decided to team up with MTV one more time so that they can celebrate her adulthood together. Miley will be taking over MTV all day tomorrow and she wants YOU to be a part of her special day. Click below to watch a video message from Miley and find out how you can participate and help celebrate her birthday. More »

FIRST LOOK at Britney's new concert stage
Our dear Britney Spears teamed up with The Ellen DeGeneres Show to let Ellen darlings Sophia Grace and Rosie pay a visit to her rehearsal space last week so that the little girls could hang out with Britney ON her Britney: Piece of Me concert stage. As you can see in the cute video clip above, we get our first look at Britney‘s stage as rehearsals take place for her upcoming Las Vegas concert residency, set to get started at the end of next month. The little girls also brought along an early birthday party in celebration of Britney‘s upcoming Birthday on December 2 … complete with cake and a present! Check out the video above to see all the cuteness go down. And Happy Early Birthday, Britney!
Further hints are on the way!
Earlier this month we learned that American Horror Story has been renewed for a 4th season to air next year but at the time, show creator Ryan Murphy wasn’t ready yet to reveal when and where the next season will take place. Today, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine (which is featuring the current season of American Horror Story: Coven on this week’s cover), Murphy spills the beans … kind of. Read on to find out where the next season will be set (or filmed, at least) and find out when the action will take place. More »
'Dexter Down Under'
Back in April, before the final season of Dexter aired on Showtime last summer, we learned that author Jeff Lindsay teamed up with Marvel Comics to publish a 5 issue run of Dexter comic books. Today, we learn that Marvel and Lindsay want to continue their collaboration with a new comic book series that will pick up where the Dexter TV series left off. Titled Dexter Down Under, this comic book series will tell the tale of Dexter Morgan (and his serial killer killing ways) as he finds new life outside of his usual Miami, FL setting. More »
Josh Hutcherson, who stars in the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (which opens in theaters this Friday), will host this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live and today we get to check out the just-released promo videos for his appearance. Now, I gotta admit … Lady Gaga kinda killed it as host last weekend (tho, her role as musical guest left a LOT to be desired) so Josh is going to have to bring it hardcore this weekend. As I’m sure you can guess, there are a couple of Hunger Games-related jokes featured in the promos above but they’re actually kinda funny. In fact, Josh is kinda funny thruout the video so I think he’ll do a great job on the show. Check out the video above and see if you think he’ll bring the LULz this weekend when he guest hosts Saturday Night Live this Saturday night with musical guest HIAM.
