Season 4, Episode 3
Let’s not even get into the type of day I had, which involved an all-school picnic at the Nyack Montessori Center for my four year-old (and the three-bean chili I had to make/bring this morning), plus an interview with Niecy Nash (woot!), plus an after-school hangout with friends of my six year-old son, which I could not reschedule because my kids would have lost their minds = I’m lit’rally just now watching Scandal. BOOoooo! I let my kids take over my world for the day (we’ve all been there), and you guys have to pay for it with a totally late, totally mini Scandal recap. But it’s still happening, so click inside for more!

'Sharing the World'
Way back in July of 2011, I was lucky enough to see the world’s first hologram pop star, Hatsune Miku, live in concert in her first performance in the US. Last night, Hatsune Miku made her US television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. Miku is a completely digital performer and as you can see above, she does pretty well on TV. But, having seen her live in concert with my own eyes, I can assure you that video does NOT do her justice. She is an actual hologram and she is cool as Hell. Click above to watch video of Hatsune Miku performing her song Sharing the World on Letterman last night and behold the pop star of the future.

The new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show premiered on FX last night and it did NOT disappoint, not one bit. The premiere episode did a really good job of introducing most of the main characters and it provided us with a fun musical performance by Jessica Lange. Lange plays the freak show boss lady Elsa Mars and on last night’s ep, she performed a cover of the David Bowie song Life On Mars?. In case you missed it or just NEED to see it again, you can watch Elsa‘s performance in full above. I really enjoyed last night’s episode and am very anxious to watch the rest of the season unfold.

And so, it begins
Back in July we learned the very happy news that the brilliant BBC America series Orphan Black was renewed for a third season and today we learn that production of the new season has gotten underway. The official Facebook profile for the show was updated today with a photo from the first table read for the first new episode that will be filmed for Orphan Black season 3.

Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader returns to SNL this week as host of the show and today we get to see his just-released promo videos. Honestly, it sometimes feels like SNL is cheating when they bring back former castmembers to host the show but then I think about all the great old skits they can do again and I’m happy to forgive the “cheating”. It’s funny how I never seem to appreciate certain castmembers when they’re on the show and then I realize what I’ve been missing since they’ve been gone. This weekend’s ep with Bill as host will be fun, I can’t wait.
Yeah, I dunno ... just go with it
So, I guess Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys has a new VH1 reality TV series called I Heart Nick Carter and on the show, he was trying to figure out a way to lose weight … or something (honestly, I haven’t watched VH1 programming since the Flavor of Love days so I may get the details of the show a bit wrong in my description). THE POINT of this post is that in this particular episode, Nick entertains the idea of having the fat zapped off his body and for his consultation, he had to strip down to a tiny blue thong … which, of course, was the highlight of the episode. Have a look below and see what the self-avowed “Fatstreet Boy” looks like in a pair of thong underwear. More »
Alfonso finally does what he was cast on 'DWTS' to do
Back in September we learned that The Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Alfonso Ribiero was added to the cast of Dancing with the Stars and ever since, we have been patiently waiting for him to bust out his trademark dance The Carleton on the show. Last night, at long last, Alfonso and his partner Witney Carson performed a jazz dance to It’s Not Unusual by Tom Jones and FINALLY he danced The Carleton. Click the video above to watch Alfonso and Witney‘s full dance performance … The Carleton comes in at the 2:24 mark. From here on out, Ribiero can be cut from DWTS at any second so enjoy him on the show while you still can :D
The People vs. OJ Simpson
The much anticipated 4th season of American Horror Story will premiere on FX tomorrow night but today we learn that AHS creator Ryan Murphy has an entirely new story to tell. It was announced today that Murphy will produce a new TV series for FX titled American Crime Story. Instead of horror stories, American Crime Story will focus on real life crime cases … and the first season will focus on the trial of OJ Simpson. Read on to learn more. More »
Back in August we got to see the first teaser video for the upcoming Breaking Bad prequel spin-off series Better Call Saul that will debut on AMC next February. Today we get to see a new promo video for BCS that comes in the form of a music video for a song appropriately titled Better Call Saul: The Song. I am counting the seconds until this prequel series premieres on AMC and I’m hopeful we’ll get more promo gems like this for the show in the meantime. Wee!
Trying to get inside David Fincher's head
This past weekend may have been the first one in 50 years where there were NO Saturday Morning Cartoons on any of the major network channels but it was also a weekend where Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor appeared on a morning TV talk show. Reznor appeared on CBS This Morning to discuss the writing process for the score of Gone Girl and as you can see above, he can handle himself very well on bright, sunny morning TV just as well as he can handle himself on stage in front of a mass of sweaty, moshing music fans. It’s a really interesting interview, I think you will enjoy it.
