Early last month we got our first look at a PAINFULLY short teaser video for the forthcoming 5th season of the ITV series Downton Abbey and earlier this month, we learned that some scenes for the new season were filmed at the site of the real castle that was used as Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter films. Today, at last, we get to check out the first batch of promo photos for Downton season 5 that give us our first look at the cast as they will appear this season. The photos are pretty standard, except for the last one in the gallery which is getting a lot of attention for being NOT period correct. Once you see it, you’ll understand why it’s making the rounds online. Personally, I enjoyed the set photos that we saw back in June much more than these posed promo photos but I’m not complaining. Downton Abbey season 5 will premiere on ITV in the UK in weeks … we, here in the US, have to wait until January to watch it on PBS. I can’t wait so I plan on watching right along with you lucky Brits as the show airs live so … I’m very excited to return to Downton Abbey.

Last month we got to check out the first, full-length trailer for the upcoming 4th season of Homeland on Showtime and today, courtesy of Buzzfeed, we get to check out the just-released new teaser trailer for the season. While the first trailer showed a bit of plot, this new teaser is all mood. I love Homeland a lot so I’m excited for the new season, even if I’ve yet to be wowed by any of the promo stuff we’ve seen thus far. All I really need is copious amounts of Claire Danes ugly crying and I’ll be all set, to be quite honest. The new season of Homeland premieres on Showtime on October 5.

Last week we learned that a petition had been created to try and get the National Football League to get Weird Al Yankovic, buoyed by his newfound success on the music charts, to perform the halftime show at the Super Bowl next year. Today we are hearing that it’s not Weird Al but American Idol winner Carrie Underwood has reportedly been selected to play the Super Bowl halftime show. As fun as it would be to get Weird Al to play the Super Bowl, I just don’t think he would ever be a serious contender for the gig. Country music star Carrie Underwood does sound like the way the NFL will go. More »

Last week, Ramona Singer of the Bravo reality TV series The Real Housewives of New York City announced on social media that her marriage to husband Mario Singer was dunzo due to his continued infidelity. Today we hear from Ramona again about the end of her marriage in a new interview she gave to People magazine. Altho she says that she was willing to forgive Mario‘s “mistake” when he cheated last year, she felt compelled to end her marriage after he continued to make the mistake of cheating on her this year. Sounds reasonable to me. Read on, learn more. More »
We already know that Lifetime TV is producing biopic made-for-TV movies on the lives of Aaliyah and Whitney Houston, an an unauthorized biopic of sorts about the cast of Saved By The Bell. But did you know that they are also releasing a biopic movie about the life of Brittany Murphy? ‘Tis true. The Brittany Murphy Story will star actress Amanda Fuller as Brittany and will premiere on Lifetime on September 6 … which is less than a month away. Clearly, Lifetime has the lock on the hastily put together made-for-TV biopic movie game. Dang. More »

Today I put on Hook for my boys (okay, mainly for me), and I thought we could keep the party going for #ThrowbackThursday. Click inside for more!
