Connie Britton was on Ora TV’s Larry King Now and he wanted to know what is coming up during the new season of Nashville. At first she said she wouldn’t reveal any spoilers, but then she told him that someone is going to die. That wasn’t good enough for him, so he wanted to know if it is someone we should care about. At that point she told him it was someone prominent.
So who could it be? Could it be her, because she is here in LA doing press and not filming the show in Nashville with everyone else. When King asked her that question, she motioned maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. But they wouldn’t kill off Rayna because she’s the star of the nighttime soap. So who else could it be? Deacon sounds like he would be the logical choice since he was getting a transplant during the season finale, but I don’t want him to die. Teddy’s character is becoming useless, so maybe it is time for the Mayor to join his lover. I know no one would miss Scarlett, so maybe the producers finally listened to all the viewer complaints. What about Jeff Fordham? Oliver Hudson is starring in Scream Queens, so can he do two shows at once? And finally there’s Layla, Aubrey Peeples is starring as Jem and fans of the cartoon series want to see her have a horrible outcome somewhere.
So who dies? We will just have to tune into ABC on September 23rd to find out. Who do you think it is?
Castle is going into its 8th season and you would think that the show has acquired a fan or two by now? And you would be right. Nathan Fillion shared a photo of his co-stars, Seamus Dever and Jon Huertas, with some of their biggest fans and I was impressed by how big they are. Although, Esposito is that anyway to hold a fan? You should handle her more delicately, like your partner.
NBC had huge numbers doing crossovers with all of their Dick Wolf shows, CBS enjoyed the same success when they did it with the NCIS and CSI franchises and CW has seen a rating increase when they’ve done it with the Vampire Diaries and the DC Comic shows but ABC hasn’t done one since Private Practice was on the air. ABC did something today that makes me wonder if they planning on bringing them back this season. The reason why I am questioning that is today they posted 6 one-minute mash-ups with 12 of their shows. They mashed up How to Get Away with Murder and Fresh Off the Boat, The Goldbergs and Scandal, Modern Family and Castle, Once Upon a Time and General Hospital, Grey’s Anatomy and Black-ish, and The Middle and Whispers. After seeing how much symmetry there is between the shows that they put together, I would love to see full episodes dedicated to them working together like Seth MacFarlane did when he created a crossover episode for Family Guy and The Simpsons. If those two shows can do it, then any 2 shows can.
I mean wouldn’t you like to see Castle investigate a murder on Modern Family? Or what about the kids on Fresh Off the Boat learning how to get away with murdering their mom when she sends them to Chinese school? Once Upon a Time has turned into a Soap Opera, so why not send them to Port Charles and have Rumpelstiltskin and Sonny work together on committing the perfect crime on General Hospital? Beverly is such a good snoop on The Goldbergs, why wouldn’t Olivia hire to be part of her team on Scandal. Oh yeah, because The Goldbergs happens when Olivia was just a child. And Keating was just starting out when Fresh Off the Boat takes place. But when it comes to the other shows, why can’t it happen? I think it should happen. Don’t you?

Ashton Kutcher didn’t only play a tech mogul on Two and a Half Men, he is one in real life. So when one of the Sharks needed some time off from Shark Tank, the producers thought he would be the perfect Shark to swim in their water. That’s right, he going to sit on the panel and offer up his own money if he likes what he hears from the entrepreneurs.
In case you don’t know how successful he is outside of acting, here are some of the companies he as invested in in the past. Ron Burkle, Guy Oseary and him created the venture fund A-Grade investments in 2011 and invested in Airbnb, Spotify, Uber, Flipboard, SoundCloud, Foursquare, Shazam and Houzz. Then last year Oseary and him founded Sound Ventures and helped to fund Pager, Handy, Meerkat, Zenefits, Classpass and more. I don’t know about you, but I think that proves he is more than qualified for the job,
In fact, I hope that Mark Burnett is auditioning Kutcher for another show he does called The Celebrity Apprentice. How amazing would he be to replace The Donald? I’d tune in every week. Plus, imagine the celebrities that would jump at the chance to be in his boardroom?
Back to Shark Tank, Ashton is not the only guest Shark who is going to appear on the show this season. Chris Sacca, Former Google Exec, Venture Capitalist and Tech Veteran, and Troy Carter, Entertainment Mogul, Branding Expert and Investor, are also slated to appear on the show.
Hot off of the huge success of Celebrity Family Feud, ABC announced today that they are working on a new game show. Actually, it is old one because they are bringing back To Tell The Truth but modernizing it.
The show has three contestants all of whom claim to be same person, but only one of them truly is that person. Four celebrity panelists, including Betty White and NeNe Leakes, will ask them questions and then have to guess who is the real person.
To Tell The Truth will be hosted by Anthony Anderson and his hilarious mother, Doris, is going to be the scorekeeper. ABC says, she will be making fun of her son whenever she can.
The 6 TTTT episodes do not have a launch date, but ABC says it is coming soon. Personally, I am hoping ABC gets rid of their current Sunday dramas and instead does a night of game shows. The huge success of CFF proves it is worthy of being a fall show and I think TTTT has the potential to be a good fit with it.
In 1959, 7 men were chosen to be the first people to go into space and they became instant stars. Not only did they become famous, so did their wives. And tonight for the next 10 weeks their story will be told on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club.
The 7 men and their wives didn’t know each other before they were selected for the space program and now they are a team and a support system. The women will be there for each other when their husband’s go into space. Remember, they were the first ones to do it, so they are scared that their husband’s might not come back from their groundbreaking flights. Besides that pressure, they also have to deal with the press wanting to know more about them. As they press finds out more about them, so do we. Their lives aren’t as perfect as they look, so it helps that they have each other to be there for them.
There’s Alan Shepard (Desmond Harrington), whose the first to go into space, and his wife, Louise (Dominique McElligott), who is the toughest one of them all. She is the woman they strive to be. Gus Grissom and his wife, Betty (JoAnna Garcia), who is sweet and wears her emotions on her sleeve. John Glenn (Sam Reid) and his wife, Annie (Azure Parsons), and she stutters. Because of that she is afraid to face the press and that will cause problems for them. Scott Carpenter (Wilson Bethel) and his wife, Rene (Yvonne Strahovski) and she is the prettiest one of them all. Not only is she pretty, she has a secret that will make the press turn against her. Wally Schirra (Aaron McCusker) and his wife, Jo (Zoe Boyle) whose very supportive of her husband. Gordo Cooper (Bret Harrison) and his “wife” Trudy (Odette Annabell). I put wife in quotes because they are actually separated because he cheated on her, but they don’t want anyone to know. Deke Slayton (Kenneth Mitchell) and his wife, Marge (Erin Cummings) who is always by side. Tonight we get to know them and starting next week each of their husbands will go into space one by one.
It isn’t only their stories that makes this period drama so hypnotizing to watch, it is how perfectly they nailed that era. I couldn’t recognize some of the actors because their appearance changed so much for that time period. All of them looked better in that style than they their current look. Some period pieces don’t feel authentic, but this one does.
Plus, it makes you want to learn more about the Mercury 7. When we think about the space program, it normally starts with man landing on the moon. But those astronauts were not even the first 7 to go into space.
So starting tonight learn about their journey on a show that is as stunning to watch as it is to look at.
I can’t say enough great things about the show that debuts tonight at 8p on ABC.
Nathan Fillion is on a break from Castle, so he decided to take a shower and share a photo of himself doing it. You know what, that is the sexiest I have ever seen him look. Not because he is naked in the shower (not that hurts), but because that hiatus beard really works on him. Maybe ABC will let him keep it because I know I need a shower after seeing him in the shower with it.
ABC announced today when their old shows are coming back and when their news one will be coming. Dancing with the Stars starts it off, a week before all of their other shows. But come September 21st, it is back to normal. While their season/series debuts are pretty standard, I am surprised by their decision to hold Dr Ken until October. That will hurt the comedies chances. Hopefully not, but historically yes.
MONDAY, SEPT. 14
8:00-10:00 p.m. “Dancing with the Stars”
MONDAY, SEPT. 21
10:00-11:00 p.m. “Castle”
TUESDAY, SEPT. 22

We know that Nathan Fillion is cute, but did you know he is even cuter swimming with 4 (he says 4, but I only see 3) otters in his shirt? Well, now you know. Castle spent the day at Nurtured by Nature and he got to play with the mammals. Looking at his face, he really enjoyed second of it. Kind of like how much we are enjoying seeing him play with them! Too precious for words.
We know that Jon Jonas and Ciara can sing, Cheryl Burke can dance and Jeff Dye can do comedy, but can they spin a basketball like the Harlem Globetrotters? We will find out tonight and every Tuesday this summer at 10p on NBC’s I Can Do That.
Each week Cheryl Burke, Ciara, Jeff Dye, Joe Jonas, Alan Ritchinson and Nicole Scherzinger will have to chose whether or not they can do an act that was just offered to them. If they think they can do it, they have one week to master it and perform it for us. What do they get? There is no prize, but Jeff Dye says getting out his comfort zone is reward enough.
Now back to the choosing, 4 acts demonstrate their talents one at a time. After each act one celebrity locks in that talent for their own and brings one of the other contestants to join them. Sounds easy, but it isn’t. Dye explained at the NBC Summer Press Day, “Sometimes when you commit to an act, you get all upset. You know you got the first act and then something will come out after it and you’re like, I’m already locked in with this act because they’ve gotten such good acts.” Then he added, “Then other times you sleep on something, you wait and you’re like I don’t know if I want to do that. I don’t know if I want to do that. Then you’re just stuck with the third one, and you’re like, oh, now I’ve got a week of doing this. So there’s a lot of thinking going on, which I’m not used to.” Burke chimed in, “Or if there’s an act that we may already know how to do, we wouldn’t run up and get the act because it wouldn’t be fair.” Then she added, “So the whole point of the show is to really try and step out of your comfort zone and see us at our most vulnerable state. I think that’s the beauty of the show, is you get to see us. We’re all amazing at what we do, but can we do something else? To see our personalities shine through in a whole different light is why the show is amazing, honestly.”
Joe Jonas explained why he agreed to do it, “This show is something that I think a lot of us were kind of wondering what the concept would be, how it would work out, and we’re all thrilled we did it.” Adding, “I mean, for us as creative people, it’s amazing to get up and be put in a challenge where you can’t back down. You have to just give it your all for a week. It can be anything from the Blue Man Group to the Jabbawockeezs and the Harlem Globetrotters, of course. If you’re not giving your all, it can really be a funny outcome.” But if you give it your all, there can be consequences as Burke divulged, “I mean, I thought ballroom dancing was hard. I have never been sore like this in my life.”
So what type of approach do you take when you sign up for this show? Scherzinger said, “Balls to the wall.” Then she added, “In our first show, we were all looking at each other, we’re like what are we doing? We didn’t know but we were just going with it and going full throttle. So I was really excited. I’m like let’s do it.”
So find out if they can do it on I Can Do That!
