Performance and Acting video ahead
Last month we got to see the first promo video that featured pop star and sometimes actress Christina Aguilera making her guest appearance on the ABC drama Nashville. Today we get to see actual footage from her appearance on the show, which gets started next Wednesday night. ABC released video of one of Xtina‘s performances on the show … where she plays a pop star trying to break into the world of Country Music. Xtina also shares video from one of her acting scenes. Click below to see Xtina in action on Nashville before she makes her proper debut on the show next week. More »
Friday April, 24
Earlier this week we learned that ABC has set an air date for Diane Sawyer‘s interview with Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner, where he is expected to reveal his gender transition for the first time publicly. Today we get to see the first video promo for the interview, which was premiered on Entertainment Tonight last night. This video promo is short and it only shows Jenner in shadow but it does make it increasingly clear that the expectation is that Bruce will share his personal gender transition story. Bruce Jenner — The Interview will air on Friday April, 24 for a 2-hour period. IMHO, this interview will be historic and is definitely worth watching.
She also did stand-up comedy, but let's not talk about that right now
Madonna made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night to do a little promo for her new album Rebel Heart and her world tour that will follow later this year. In addition to a short sit down interview (and embarrassingly disastrous and wholly unwatchable stand up comedy routine — which we’ll discuss later today), Madonna delivered a pair of live performances on the show. First up, Madonna teamed up with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to perform her classic song Holiday with classroom instruments … you can watch that performance in the embed above. Below, you can watch Madonna‘s very extravagant performance of Bitch I’m Madonna. Folks, if you watch anything today, it must be the performance video below. More »
"The world is better in black and white ... and Red"
Early last month we learned that the upcoming third season of Orange is the new Black will premiere on Netflix on June 12 and today, at LONG last, we finally get to see the first trailer for the new series. Netflix released this first trailer for OITNB season 3 just moments ago and you can click the embed above to watch it. All of our fave characters are featured in this first trailer … along with the introduction of the new character Stella (played by Ruby Rose). We still have 2 months of waiting to go but this first look at season 3 of Orange is the new Black is an excellent tease. Check it out.
"Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like ..."
Earlier this week we learned the sad news that creator David Lynch has pulled out of having any involvement with the rebooted sequel Twin Peaks series that is (presumably still) headed for Showtime after financial negotiations reached an impasse. Today we get to see a video that features many of the original Twin Peaks castmembers lamenting the loss of David Lynch from the new Twin Peaks project. Each of the cast members — from Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer) to Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson) to Catherine E. Coulson (The Log Lady) and even Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch‘s daughter) — included in this video complete the sentence, Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like … Click below to watch it in full.

Up until today, in all of the promo photos and promo videos that we have seen from the Netflix original series Marvel’s Daredevil, it was presumed that the superhero would be wearing the simple black costume that we’ve been seeing in all of the promo materials. Today, Netflix reveals/spoils that Daredevil will, in fact, wear a more traditional red costume at some point in the series. My guess is that we will see an evolution of the Daredevil character that will start out with his more homemade-looking black costume and will eventually end up with his more comic book classic-looking costume. Click below to see the video that reveals for the first time Daredevil‘s new red suit. More »
Empire star Taraji P. Henson will be the guest host on Saturday Night Live this weekend and as you can see in the promo videos above, she is planning to BRING her fabulousness to the SNL stage. Expect to see a fun Empire skit, natch, but also expect to see Taraji slay the world as host. Mumford & Sons will be the musical guest but I’m so not trying to hear that. SNL will be all about La Henson and I cannot wait!

Happy 4 8 15 16 23 42 Day
Remember those curious numbers that played a huge role in the now defunct ABC drama Lost? Well today, for a split second, those numbers will align for the first time ever at precisely 4:23:42. April 8, 2015 at 4:23:42 translates into 4 8 15 16 23 42. It is extremely likely that absolutely nothing will happen at the stroke of 4:23:42 this afternoon or, then again, it might be a magical moment in time. We still have a few hours to go before we find out (the magic time will hit the east coast first, here in the US, followed by the central, mountain and pacific areas of the country). Click below to learn more about this Lost numbers convergence and get ready … you never know what may happen (tho probably nothing will happen at all). More »

Earlier this week we learned that ABC has set an air-date for Diane Sawyer‘s 2-hour interview with Bruce Jenner where he will reportedly open up publicly for the first time about his gender transition. Today we learn a few reported details about the interview from sources speaking to TMZ. As always, we must consider all news reports about this interview as conjecture until we hear from Jenner himself. According to this new report from TMZ, Jenner is looking at this interview with Diane Sawyer as his “farewell” to Bruce and plans to present his new self to the world. Click below to read this report from TMZ about what we may expect when this interview airs on ABC later this month. More »
