Words cannot express the many ways I love this pic and this freaking show and cast. No I have to put on my Friday Night Lights dvds. RIP Friday Night Lights
YESSSSS A real promo for Scandal season 3 got released today on Entertainment Weekly. Ohhh It’s gonna be good. Season 3 of Scandal premieres on ABC Thursday, October 3rd.
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and the unofficial start of summer. Most of us will be out soaking up the sun and partaking in many libations. But for those that have nothing to do or are just too lazy to leave their homes there are a ton of marathons to watch. Entertainment Weekly has a list of all the marathons for the weekend. Some highlights are Adventure Time on Cartoon Network, Sex & The City, on Style Network and James Bond movies on G4.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Freaks and Geeks Reunion. OMG I loved this show so much. The entire cast has gone on to be quite successful. Excuse me while I go bring out my F&G DVD Box set for some winter break watching.
Tonight brings about the premieres of two of my favorite comedies on television: Happy Endings and Don’t Trust The B* In Apartment 23.
9/8c – ABC – Happy Endings. Season 3 Premiere. Dave and Alex start dating again, telling everyone they’re keeping it “cazsh.” When an unfortunate accident lands Penny in a full body cast, Max nurses her back to health. But after he meets her hot physical therapist, he starts “misery-ing” her so her fast recovery won’t put the brakes on his new crush; and Brad has a secret about his new unemployed status that he’s trying to keep from Jane. Jessica Shaw from Entertainment Weekly put it best when she said, “There are two types of people in this world: (a) those who have seen HAPPY ENDINGS and love it and (b) those who have never heard of HAPPY ENDINGS. Because to watch this show and dislike it is unfathomable. It’d be like hating puppies — sexy, sardonic, filthy-mouthed puppies.” Well said Jessica, well said. It’s the truth. No one I have turned on this show has ever regretted it. Season 1 was great, season 2 was even better and I’ll bet this season will be just as good and hopefully better.
9:30/8:30c – ABC – Don’t Trust The B* In Apartment 23. Season 2 Premiere. James goes against Chloe’s advice, succumbing to June’s urging and attempting the unimaginable – dare we dream? — a Dawson’s Creek reunion! Along the way, he makes some shocking discoveries, veers slightly off course and encounters some stars of television past. I didn’t think this show was that great in the beginning, but it got pretty hilarious as the season went on. It’s not as good as Happy Endings but it’s its own show and the cast is very funny.
No words for this.

Some entertainment headlines from the past week.
Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler both announced this week that they will be leaving the American Idol judging panel. There has been speculation for weeks about Lopez’s exit but Tyler’s came a little as a surprise. But not that surprising as there were rumors of major shake ups on Idol coming (Budget cuts, lots of firings). There are even some talks about Randy Jackson moving towards being a mentor towards contestants and not being a judge. Now that these two have left, who is going to take their place? Some of the names being tossed around as replacements are Adam Lambert (season 8 Idol runner-up), Celine Dion, Charlie Sheen, Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey. I love Mariah and I think she would be great. It still wouldn’t get me to watch the show though. I don’t think anything could. All these big names they want are expensive though and I don’t see any of them except Lambert taking less than $15 million for the gig. Just to put it into perspective Lopez made $20 million per year as a judge. That isn’t going to save them any money at all. I’m sure that in the coming weeks there will be more speculation and a ton more names thrown out there as replacements. It’s always funny watching the process unfold.
Get ready ladies. Another round of Magic Mike is on the way. Channing Tatum said “Yes, yes and yes!” during a Twitter interview with Glamour U.K when asked about a sequel to the his hit movie. “We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.” Hmmm I don’t know about a sequel to this movie. Granted I liked it and all but there is no need for a sequel. The movie was resolved. If there were to do a sequel Tatum’s character wouldn’t be in it because at the end of the first one **SPOILER** he quits stripping. I mean there is plenty of eye candy there to continue I guess but story-wise it just needs to end.
R&B singer and songwriter, Frank Ocean’s new album, Channel Orange was released a week early this past Monday on Itunes. And while that might not seem like a problem for most people, apparently Target took offense and has decided not to stock the physical album that will be released this coming Tuesday, July 17th. Ocean’s manager, Christian Clancy was not happy about this and tweeted, “Target has refused to carry Frank’s album because of iTunes exclusive. Interesting since they also donate to non-equal rights organizations.” This in reference to Target having made donations to anti-gay political organizations. Ocean essentially came out revealed the week before on his tumblr page and that seems to be the reason Clancy is bringing that up. Target has come out and said their reasoning for not carrying the album is because Ocean’s management team released the album online first and not for any other reason. I would believe Target except Jay-Z and Kanye West did the same thing when they released their joint album, Watch The Throne, last August and Target still carried their album. It doesn’t matter to me though. I was always going to get the album and it was always going to come from Best Buy who will surely reap all the benefits from carrying the album. Channel Orange is now available on iTunes and in stores this Tuesday. Check out his performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
There is a new Walking Dead trailer for season 3 that came from Comic Con this week. It shows the survivors working together to clear the undead from that ominous prison glimpsed at the end of the last season. The footage also shows a katana-wielding new character Michonne (Danai Gurira) slicing through zombies and teaming up with Andrea (Laurie Holden). The trailer ends with a shot of Michael Rooker’s scumbag character Merle, who escaped from a pair of handcuffs by slicing off his appendage back in the first season. In the third season footage, Merle sports a knife for a right arm. This looks crazy as hell. Can’t wait for it to start. The Walking Dead season 3 premieres October 14 on AMC.
Yay more Hunger Games news. Lionsgate has announced that they are going to be splitting up the third installment of the series, Mockingjay into 2 parts. They will start with Catching Fire hitting theaters on November 22, 2013, Mockingjay, Part 1on November 21, 2014, and Mockingjay, Part 2 on Nov. 20, 2015. This way, like the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises, every Thanksgiving families can head out to the theaters and see kids kill each other. Entertainment Weekly has a nice article on the possible places where they could split it up. There are many spoilers so if you haven’t read the book don’t even click on the link.
