It's been a while since the last episode of "The Vampire Diaries" but fans can be assured that the long wait is going to be worth it. The return of the supernatural drama television series has a lot in store for those who have loyally followed the show through the ups and downs of six seasons.
Season 7 of TVD is going to be a lot different especially with the exit of Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert. According to International Business Times, the show is going to try a time shuffle that will see the characters in the future. The first few episodes will contain a lot of explaining with what Elena's friends have been doing since the events of season 6 finale. Julie Plec, executive producer, told Entertainment Weekly that they are picking up all over the place.
"We're picking up a little bit in the future, we're picking up a lot in the future, we're doing a little bit of a time shuffle as we launch into the season. One timeline is set very much in the future and the other timeline will catch us up to the events of the final scene of last season," said Plec. more >>
The second season of "Gotham" is still a month from now but fans are already given a generous heads up of what they should be expecting when the show returns.
The latest update is the one involving another iconic character from the Batman world, only this one isn't a person but rather a location that many are aware of. It can be fondly remembered that in the comics, Batman bases his vigilante operations from a secret underground headquarters known as the Batcave.
But the show "Gotham" is going to do a different take on it and is even careful not to refer to it as the Batcave. They are simply going to debut it as a cave that Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) discovered beneath the Wayne manor. The Season 1 finale left off with Bruce and Alfred discovering the secret entrance to the cave. more >>
With the two-hour season premiere of "Scream Queens" coming close to schedule, fans are already excited to catch it on TV especially since they know that the American horror-comedy is packed with a star-studded cast. From Emma Roberts to Ariana Grande to Jamie Lee Curtis, "Scream Queens" is going to be a different kind of TV series that both gals and guys will love.
But even before show co-creator Ryan Murphy got to include Curtis to the cast, reports say that the iconic actress initially declined to take the role of Dean Cathy Munsch. According to Cinema Blend, Murphy particularly wanted Curtis to be part of his new show on Fox. And when the actress said no, he didn't stop there and was determined enough to make her agree by arranging the shooting schedule in a way that would accommodate the actress' schedule. So instead of doing a long duration shooting, Curtis will only need to head out to New Orleans twice a month by lumping her schedule into four- or five-day periods.
"We gave her a deal that I thought was very cool," Murphy says. "She was totally worth it to me." more >>
Comedian John Oliver, who started his own parody "church" called Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption to highlight the predatory nature of some televangelists, recently revealed that the joke paid off in a big way.
Sunday on his show "Last Week Tonight," the British host revealed that viewers had already sent him thousands of dollars with their letters after he told them earlier this month to "sow a seed" — mocking the style of preachers like Robert Tilton and Kenneth Copeland.
"To be honest, slightly more of you responded than we were expecting," "Megareverend" Oliver said while surrounded by hundreds of letters, two bags of actual seeds, and beef jerky, among other things. more >>

A new report alleged Wednesday that former "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar stepped out on his wife, Anna, twice while she was pregnant with their fourth child to have "rough sex" with 28-year-old stripper and porn star Danica Dillon. His family also revealed in a statement that he has now checked himself into a treatment center.
Dillon, whose real name is Ashley Lewis, details her alleged encounters with Josh in an In Touch magazine report where she said she first met the young father at the Gold Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in mid-March. They reconnected a month later at Creekside Cabaret in Colmar, Pennsylvania.
