Caleb Kennedy out of American Idol after an old racist video surfaces with him
May 12th, 2021 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]

Caleb Kennedy made it to the top 5 on American Idol this past Sunday, but he will not be performing this week. That is because he was forced to leave the singing competition after an old video surfaced of him with a friend dressed in a KKK hood.

“Hey y’all, this is gonna be a bit of a surprise, but I am no longer gonna be on American Idol,” Kennedy wrote on social media. “There was a video that surfaced on the Internet and it displayed actions that were not meant to be taken in that way. I was younger and did not think about the actions, but that’s not an excuse. I wanna say sorry to all my fans and everyone who I have let down. I’ll be taking a little time off social media to better myself, but saying that, I know this has hurt and disappointed a lot of people and made people lose respect for me. I’m so sorry! I pray that I can one day regain your trust in who I am and have your respect! Thank you for supporting me.”

According to KABC’s George Pennacchio, the show will go on with only four contestants this Sunday. I guess that means no one will be eliminated this week.

ABC had no choice but to get rid of him after Roseanne sent a racist tweet, and this season’s Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell who was photographed at a party at a Plantation a few years ago. When Chris Harrison defended her, he was asked to take a break from the franchise. Therefore, any perception of racism by anyone on their network will lead to that person’s dismissal (unless all of their stuff was pretaped).

Back to Idol, Kennedy is the second person to leave the show this season who was not eliminated. Wyatt Pike asked to leave for personal reasons when he made the top 12.

The sun will come out this Christmas for NBC with Annie Live
May 12th, 2021 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC is getting back into the live musical business this holiday season by doing a production of Annie.

“There are few musicals like ‘Annie’ where you know the words to every song and the overriding message — especially in the trying times we live in — is optimism,” Executive Producer Neil Meron said. “The song ‘Tomorrow’ means more than ever now, and it’s not lost on us that even Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal are impacted by this little orphan who simply believes in the goodness of everyone!”

Casting is underway, but I have some suggestions. I think they should get Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Annie as a kid, to play Miss Hannigan. Adam Levine as her brother Rooster. Jane Levy could play Annie. She played her as a kid, she’s a redhead, and she is still the same size. Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen can play Daddy Warbucks and his right-hand woman Grace. Who do you want to see in those roles?

And are you as excited as I am to see their take on Annie? Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, I have loved this musical since I was even younger than Annie is supposed to be.

Is there a new Sharknado movie in the works?
May 12th, 2021 under Sharknado, Tara Reid. [ Comments: none ]

Ian Ziering shared a photo of himself with his telemovie wife Tara Reid on a plane going to the Bahamas and said, “Who wants more Sharknados?”

There is only one problem. Syfy said that the sixth movie would be the franchise’s last one. However, can you take anything anyone says seriously when it is related to a movie about sharks being hurled out of a tornado? Therefore, I say bring it on! I want and need more Sharknado!

Do I think they are doing another movie? Nope. I think they are probably doing a convention or a reunion thingy, but I hope I am wrong. Do want a seventh film? If Jason Vorhees can go to Space and Hell, why can’t Sharknado come back after being erased in time?

For years Executive Producer Dan Fogelman has said that This Is Us will end with season 6. Today, Variety confirmed that it is definitely happening.

Fogleman said that the show was mapped out for six seasons, and he meant it. As much as the fans want it to go on, it will not.

Are you crying as much about this news as the show makes you cry every week?

Chicago Med is going into its seventh season, and that means the contracts are up for the medical drama’s original cast members. As of today, we know that two of the actors have decided to leave the show. They are Yaya DaCosta and Torrey DeVitto.

DeCosta plays nurse April Sexton, and it looks like her character will leave the ED to go to med school. At the same time, DeVitto’s character Dr. Natalie Manning has been stealing experimental medicine to give to her mom.

Both actresses already have their next jobs lined up. DeCosta is joining Fox’s Our Kind of People, and DeVitto will star in the Independent film Skelly, according to Deadline.

S. Epatha Merkerson is said to have signed her contract, while Oliver Platt, Nick Gehlfuss, Brian Tee, and Marlyne Barrett are still working on their deals.

Back to the actresses, are you upset that they are leaving? I feel like the writers have done as much as they can with their characters, and there is nowhere else they can take them. I think the other roles still have some room for the producers to create some interesting storylines. Although, I feel like Gehlfuss’ character could be getting close to them running out of ideas for Dr. Will Halstead.
