HBO has given second season pickups to its trio of new fall series: fantasy drama “Westworld” and comedies “Insecure” and “Divorce.”
Aww, I’m sad he’s leaving but so happy for him. They need to get another Brit on the show when he leaves.
Arrested Development – NetFlix – This show returns 7 years after being cancelled by FOX and becoming a cult favorite. For season 4, each new episode is written from one character’s point-of-view. All 15 episodes will take place within the same timeframe, each episode will focus on one character. Catch up with the Bluth family today when all 15 episodes are put on Netflix Instant Watch.
Behind The Candlelabra – HBO 9/8c – Starring Michael Douglas (Wall Street, Solitary Man), Matt Damon (The Bourne Series, We Bought A Zoo). The movie is a behind-the-scenes look at the relationship between entertainer Liberace and Scott Thorson, his younger live-in lover.
Sundays just got even more jam packed with all of the Showtime and HBO’s mid-season lineup returning tonight.
Live From The Red Carpet (E!) – 5/4c Awards season is in high gear and I love a red carpet. E! happens to throw the best red carpet party with Ryan Seacrest and Giuliani Rancic. Tonight’s carpet is for the 70th annual Golden Globe awards.
70th Annual Golden Globe Awards (NBC) – 8/5p I love the Globes because they are always a nice booze filled party and not as stuffy as the Oscars. Everyone is sitting to dinner and by the end of it someone who is presenting or accepting an award is slurring their words in the funniest way. The awards usually hosted by Ricky Gervais are being turned over to funny ladies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
The weekend is ending so it’s time to unwind with some premieres tonight.
8/7c – VH1 – Rehab With Dr. Drew – Season 6 Premiere. This season instead of focusing on celebrities, Dr. Drew is going to take on everyday young adults who are going through the rehabilitation process. From heartbreak to hope, you will see Dr. Drew and his patients on their difficult and deeply emotional journey to sobriety.
9/8c – VH1 – Behind The Music – Season 15 premiere. The music documentary series returns with a season that premieres with the behind the scenes story of the group Train. I won’t watch this episode as I don’t really like Train — at least not since Drops of Jupiter. But I shall be checking out the other artists they will be featuring for the rest of the season like Ne-Yo, Gym Class Heroes, Toni Braxton, T.I. (updated), P!nk (updated) and Carrie Underwood. Nicole Scherzinger will also be featured but I won’t watch that one as I don’t like her.
9/8c – HBO – Boardwalk Empire – Season 3 premiere. The premiere is set more than a year after the events of the finale. Nucky is feeling some emotional conflicts with killing his former protegé. Despite this conflict, he refuses to slow down in business. He is going all out to fight his new rival, Gyp Rosetti played by Bobby Cannavale (Will & Grace, Third Watch), who challenges the corrupt politician for control of the bootleg business.
10/9c – Weeds – Showtime – This isn’t a premiere but it’s the series finale of the show. A show that has had more drama and laughs than a lot of other shows. There have been a lot of ups and downs for Nancy Botwin and her crazy crew and I’m sad to see them go. I hope the show goes out strong and with some resolution.
2012 Emmy nominations were announced this morning and there were shocking nominations at all. They were announced by Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel’s own Jimmy Kimmel and Scandal‘s Kerry Washington (chick looked specially fresh-faced for it being 5:30 in the morning L.A time). Kimmel showed up in his pajamas to read the noms because of the ungodly hour. He was his hilarious self as usual and brought a breath of fresh air to the usually stiff nomination reading.
AMC’s Mad Men and FX’s American Horror Story landed the most nominations with 17. Hatfield & McCoys (History), Breaking Bad (AMC), Game Change (HBO) and Modern Family (ABC) also earned multiple nominations. There were many first time nominees including Bill Hader (Supporting Actor Comedy, Saturday Night Live, NBC), Zooey Deschanel (Lead Actress Comedy, New Girl, FOX), Max Greenfield (Supporting Actor Comedy, New Girl, FOX),and Lena Dunham (Lead Actress Comedy; Writing For Comedy, Directing For Comedy , Girls, HBO).

The Great Gatsby
This trailer looks so good. Tobey McGuire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton and Leonardo DiCaprio all in one movie, yes please. The movie is directed by Baz Luhrmann, who did one of my favorite Nicole Kidman movies, Moulin Rouge. It is based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald book most of us had to read in middle school or high school about “writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.” The movie hits theaters Christmas Day, 2012.
Yesss my show is back. Season 4 was crazy and Season 5 looks even crazier. They had already released a trailer but that one was more of a teaser. This one finally shows who new cast member, Christopher Meloni (Stabler, Law & Order: SVU), will be playing. Last season ended with a blood bath. Jesus, Tara, Debbie, Marnie, Tommy, Nan and more were all taken out. Russell is going to be back (Yay love him). The new season is only 2 weeks away. It premieres June 10 at 9/8c.
Love Bond movies. All this trailer. It’s all fluff. Lots of things exploding and plenty of action scenes, plus it’s got the hot hot Daniel Craig in it. I will always watch Bond movies because I have watched them since I was a kid so they always have a special place in my heart. Skyfall hits theaters November 9, 2012.
Anchorman has to be one of Will Ferrell’s funniest movies and when I saw they were doing a sequel. I thought yes but ughh a sequel. After watching this teaser trailer, I can say that all my doubts have been removed. It was too funny. The movie hasn’t started shooting yet but it has a release date of sometime in 2013.
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
This movie is produced by Tim Burton and I like him so I will most definitely be seeing this movie. It is based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel by the same name about Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, who discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He then makes it his mission to end them. This trailer is the new red band trailer with lots of blood, gore and killing. The movie hits theaters June 22,2012.
A ton of trailers for different movies and shows came out in the past few days. Here are some of the big ones.
Tom Cruise in the musical Rock of Ages
The movie has a whole hell of a lot of people in it from Mary J Blige, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin to Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Malin Akerman. Its just looks like a huge disaster and I’m not sure how this is going to pan out especially with Julianne Hough in the mix. She’s just such a bad actress. See for yourself.
Rock of Ages opens June 15, 2012.
True Blood Teaser Clip
The residents of Bon Temps will be returning this summer and in order to whet your appetites before the premiere, HBO sent out this teaser clip. It looks even crazier than last season’s and last season was nuts. Hopefully it be a great one since it’ll be Alan Ball’s last one as showrunner.
Season 5 of True Blood premieres June 2012 on HBO Continue reading Trailers Galore
