Though she has always been lumped in with the Selena Gomez’s and Miley Cyrus’s of this era (both musically and artistically due to shared history) there has always been something different about Demi Lovato. Musically speaking, there has always been a sense of depth and maturity that her peers have lacked, and her latest release ‘Demi’ is certainly no exception.

CBS is the next network to reveal their upcoming Fall 2013-2014 schedule. Among the changes are a few shake ups in the lineup department. Thursday nights will become a comedy block with Person of Interest moving to Tuesdays at 10pm. Hawaii Five-0 will be leaving it's Monday night slot and taking over for CSI:NY on Friday nights. Additionally, Mike & Molly will be held to midseason.
I'm a little concerned about all of these changes, considering they involve two of my favorite CBS shows. The reactions for Person of Interest seem to be positive but with ratings as good as it was enjoying, I'm worried they will suffer if the series airs later on at night. As for Hawaii Five-0, I'm not sure Friday nights are ever good for a series.
Check out the full schedule here:
The full trailer for the Once Upon a Time spin-off series has been released! Once Upon A Time in Wonderland now has a full trailer to go along with its new timeslot on ABC's schedule. This is a very impressive trailer. It looks like something you would see for a blockbuster movie in theaters. On top of this highly anticipated series, EW is reporting that the first episode will actually be starting in Storybrooke, the fictional town of Once Upon A Time.
Once Upon A Time in Wonderland is coming to ABC Thursdays this Fall. The series stars Sophie Lowe and Peter Gadiot.
Check out the video of the trailer here:
Following the rumors that fans may have to worry that their favorites may not survive the new season, True Blood has given us a glimpse at the theme for season 6. HBO has released the key poster art for the new season that features the tag line "No one lives forever." Is this a hint that a vampire may be on the way out? And if not, then who?
True Blood returns to HBO on June 16th at 9pm.
Big casting news for Person of Interest. Samantha Shaw will not only be back in season 3, she'll be sticking around permanently. CBS has announced that Sarah Shahi will be made a series regular. Shahi originally appeared last season as a mysterious character tracking terrorists before they act. She slowly became integrated into the center of the group, gaining knowledge of the Machine and driving Reese around town in expensive sports cars.
This is not the only news to come out about the show this week. Upon announcing their new schedule, CBS revealed that Person of Interest would be moving to Tuesday nights at 10pm.
What do you think of these developments?
Fans of Emblem 3, we've got good news. This summer, the boy band will be hitting the road with Selena Gomez on her Stars Dance tour. Many know Emblem 3 from when they came in fourth place on The X Factor. It's great seeing them get so much well deserved recognition now that the reality competition is over. The tour will kick off August 14th in Vancouver, B.C. Maybe we'll get lucky and a collaboration will happen further down the road. One can hope. Are you excited about this?
That's right, the Backstreet Boys are back and better than ever. Yesterday the guys appeared on Good Morning America to premiere their new song "Permanent Stain" and make a huge announcement. Fans of BSB can expect a new album from them, titled In a World Like This, on July 30th. The first single, also named "In a World Like This" will come out on June 25th. That's not all though. Beginning on August 2nd, the Backstreet Boys are hitting the road for a summer tour. The In a World Like This tour will kick of in Chicago and then wrap up in San Francisco on September 8th. This album and tour marks the return of Kevin Richardson, who left the band in 2005. Check out the full list of tour dates below:
Oh no. Another American Idol judge is out. US Weekly is reporting that Nicki Minaj is leaving the reality show at the end of this season. Apparently the rap superstar wants to focus more of her time on her music, touring, and endorsements. This isn't the first bit of news to come out about next season. Randy Jackson has already confirmed that he's leaving the show. There's no word yet if Mariah Carey and Keith Urban are returning in the fall.

Big things could be ahead for CBS drama series Person of Interest. In a year where almost every series and network saw a slump in views, only Person of Interest and Scandal gained viewers. The New York Times is reporting that the CBS drama experienced nothing of a sophomore slump this year seeing ratings as high as 16.1 million. ABC's Scandal is also on fire.
The article goes on to say "Hit shows that gather momentum in their second seasons can create a cash cow that will produce revenue for years, even decades"
Sounds great to us! If Person of Interest could have a series run similar to NCIS that'd be amazing.
It may sound too good to be true but The CW really is reviving fan favorite comedy improv series Whose Line is it Anyway for an all new season. The new season is set to premiere this Summer on the network and already we have a glimpse at what to expect. In this new clip, the gang gets back together to play old favorites like Greatest Hits and Scenes From a Hit as a sort of tribute to 90210.
I'm so happy to see them back together again playing the games that once worked so well. They've tried and failed at other improv shows so here's hoping this one sticks around.
Let us know what you think of the video below! Do you miss Drew Carey and his giggle as much as we do?
ABC has announced the lineup for its upcoming Fall 2013-2014 season. Among the highlights is a new lineup on Tuesday nights featuring the new Marvel series S.H.I.E.L.D.

The clock is ticking for everyone in Storybrooke. Our heroes must find a solution before they are all destroyed by Regina's trigger, that Greg and Tamara have unceremoniously activated. What will save them? The Charmings? A magic bean?
Are we heading to Neverland?
Check out our recap of tonight's season finale of Once Upon A Time: "And Straight On 'Til Morning."
Well, it's official. Following the announcement that Jimmy Fallon would be replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, the news of who would be replacing Jimmy in his late night timeslot began circulating. Seth Meyers has officially been named to take over Jimmy Fallon's late night show at 12:35 on NBC. With his time now being pretty taken up over his new late night duties, who will be taking over as head writer of Saturday Night Live?
What do you think of this news? I don't know how much I like the idea. Sometimes Seth comes across like he thinks his own jokes are hilarious and he doesn't have a genuine quality like Jimmy does.

It's not exactly a surprise but the news we all expected has finally arrived. NBC has officially canceled their musical series Smash after two seasons. Even if the show was a mess lately, I'm going to be sad to see it go. The cast, well most of it, was so wonderful. I loved seeing them together. I haven't been able to catch up with the show since the network moved it to Saturday nights so I can't comment on how much of a mess the second season spiraled into.
Today has just been non-stop television news! Renewals, cancellations, and pick ups galore! One of the biggest standouts for us so far is the new CBS drama Intelligence. It will star LOST alum Josh Holloway. We are so thrilled to see him again on our screens. It's been a long time since Sawyer warmed our hearts. Josh will be playing an agent at US Cyber Command who has a microchip implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
Now I have no idea what that means. Didn't he get enough of magnets when he was on LOST? But with all of the cancellations in the air today (CSI:NY, Vegas) there's a void that needs to be filled. And with a star studded cast that includes Marg Helgenberger from CSI, and Meghan Ory from Once Upon A Time, this could be a break out hit! Does this mean we'll be seeing a lot less of Ruby on Once Upon A Time?
