The war between humans and vampires is bigger than ever, and of course, bloodier. In this new trailer for season 6 of True Blood, the government has gotten behind vampire hunters and is encouraging the public to protect themselves with as many wooden bullets as their wallets can buy. And then there are the rumors that a major character may not survive the season. With a tag line that says "No One Lives Forever" can you blame fans for getting a little worried?
True Blood returns with new episodes on June 16th.
Check out the video of the new trailer here:
It's finally happening. The Secret Life of the American Teenager is coming to an end. The back and forth of Amy's dramatic love life will finally have some closure. I really can't say I know how the series will end. Last I checked, Amy wanted to move to New York and completely leave her kid behind. She may be the star but she is perhaps the most unlikable character on the entire network.
Here we have an exclusive first look at the series finale "Thank You and Goodbye." I'm hoping their attire is for the graduation and not a funeral or anything. How do you think the series will end? Both Ken Baumann and Megan Park have shared that the finale may not be satisfying for fans of the show.
The series finale of The Secret Life of the American Teenager airs Monday, June 3rd on ABC Family.
The new season of Baby Daddy is already looking to be awesome, especially if you're a fan of the dearly departed mystery series on ABC Family Kyle XY. While the series was canceled a few years ago, the cast has remained friends. As a treat for fans of both shows, Matt Dallas, who originally starred as Kyle, will be guest starring on the upcoming new season of Baby Daddy alongside his former costar Jean-Luc Bilodeau. Matt will be playing Fitch Douglas, a love interest for Riley.
Baby Daddy is set to return to ABC Family's Comedy Wednesdays on May 29th.
This morning, E! News is reporting that Jennifer Hudson has signed on to judge season 13 of American Idol. She's set to be part of an all-alum panel. While Hudson wasn't my favorite contestant, it will be great to see what she can add to the show. Plus, she's definitely one of the more high profile artists to ever come from American Idol. After coming in seventh place, Hudson went on to win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Dreamgirls and a role in NBC's Smash. That's not all, she's also had commercial success as a singer. Any advice and critique Hudson can give the aspiring singers will obviously be greatly appreciated. Other former Idols considered for this all-alum panel are Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, and Adam Lambert. Can we replace Aiken and Lambert with Carrie Underwood? Either way, hopefully the idea of bringing back former contestants to judge can boost the ratings up to what they once were.

Is anyone else really looking forward to The Crazy Ones? It's been so long since I've seen Robin Williams on my TV in something that wasn't Mrs. Doubtfire. This will mark his first television series since Mork & Mindy. The Crazy Ones is set to star Robin alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar as father and daughter working together at ad advertising agency. The trailer features some hilarious scenes and even an appearance by Kelly Clarkson.
The Crazy Ones is set to premiere on CBS this Fall.
Check out the full trailer for the series here:
The 2013 Teen Choice Awards have been announced and nominations are starting to be released. The "first wave" of nominations have been announced and fans can begin voting online at www.teenchoiceawards.com immediately. Twilight has, no surprise, dominated the movie categories with seven nominations. Happily, however, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Logan Lerman have also received nominations. That movie was amazing and I'm happy it's getting some recognition. Over in the television categories, ABC Family score some nominations with Pretty Little Liars snagging three nominations. Switched at Birth, Glee, and pleasantly enough Hawaii Five-0 were also nominated for several categories.
The two hour even will air live on August 11th on FOX.

One of the most touching moments ever on The Voice came last night when Miranda Lambert performed her hit "Over You" with Blake Shelton. The song was dedicated to Oklahoma and all those who were affected by the tornado earlier this week. The country superstars urged those watching to donate money for victims at redcross.org or by calling 1-800 HELP NOW. Watch Lambert and Shelton's performance of "Over You" below:
During Monday night's episode of The Voice, Maroon 5 premiered their music video for their current single "Love Somebody". The great thing about this band is that you can always count on them to produce a video that tells a story and is completely unique from anything else out. This one is no different. Here, we have a shirtless Adam Levine covered in paint. Who doesn't love that? Not to mention, this song is quite the jam. Check out Maroon 5's music video for "Love Somebody" below:
Rumer Willis is headed to Rosewood. The actress is going to be guest starring in an upcoming episode of Pretty Little Liars. She will be playing a charity organizer "with a sense of humor." Her character is slated to appear in one episode with the option to appear in more. Her episode will air in July.
What do you think of this casting news? Is Pretty Little Liars resorting to semi-famous faces to help with ratings? Not sure that's the case here as it is one of ABC Family's top rated shows.
Pretty Little Liars returns for season 4 on June 11th on ABC Family.
We are 19 days away from the premiere of ABC Family's Pretty Twisted Tuesdays. The new Tuesday programming block will feature the season 4 premiere of Pretty Little Liars and the series premiere of the network's highly anticipated mystery thriller Twisted.
We've already seen the pilot episode of Twisted and I think this show will interest fans a lot more than recent duds like The Lying Game and Bunheads. The premiere episode was full of mystery and cliffhangers and perfectly set up fans to tune in for the rest of the season.
Twisted premiered June 11th on ABC Family.
Check out these sneak peeks of the pilot episode of Twisted here:
According to a new report from Vulture, FOX is considering a new twist on the judges for American Idol next year. In a bid to boost dwindling ratings, serious consideration is being given to the possibility of having former contestants on the judges panel. Their sources say Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have already been approached and Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken are also being considered.
I think this is a great idea. This show has gotten incredibly stale since the judges table has become a revolving door of overpaid celebrities who just want to boost or promote their careers. The meddling of the producers who seemed frantic this year to manipulate the results has become increasingly apparent and this could be the breath of fresh air we're looking for. If the show can get back to its roots and become genuine again, I might actually start watching again.
If I can't have Harry Connick Jr. (who seemed frustrated with the show's b.s.) I would love a panel of contestants. I might prefer to see Jordin Sparks instead of Hudson, who seems to be everywhere on my TV lately. If she's not warbling at me about Weight Watchers, she's taking over Smash. David Archuleta probably wouldn't be considered because he's just too nice. While his criticism wouldn't exactly be constructive, it would be hilarious to watch him attempt to be critical of someone with his smile and laugh. How would he have reacted to William Hung or any of the awful auditions? Think of the look on his face! Cutie pie.
Who would you like to see on the judges panel next season? Can American Idol be saved?

Tonight's the night. The final four couples on Dancing with the Stars are competing for the mirror ball trophy and the title of season 16 winner. This has been one of the strongest seasons, with both Kellie Pickler and Zendaya dominating the whole way through. You can't count athletes Aly Raisman and Jacoby Jones out though. Where did each team place? Who won Dancing with the Stars? Read the results below:
We're down to the final eight artists on The Voice. Like every week, tonight we had to say goodbye to two more talented contestants. It's so hard parting ways with any of these singers because each is so different from one another. They all bring something completely unique to the competition that whoever leaves will be greatly missed. Find out who went home on tonight's episode below:
On Wednesday, May 29th, the cast of ABC Family's hit comedy series Baby Daddy will be participating in a live chat via Twitter.

Beginning at 8:30 pm fans can watch as the cast members compete for new followers.
