The fifth episode of the upcoming season of Community may be the last time we hear Donald Glover’s Troy Barnes say, “Troy and Abed In The Morning!” with Danny Pudi’s Abed Nadir, but it won’t be the last time we hear Donald on TV.
Donald is set to write, executive produce and play the lead in FX’s Atlanta, a half-hour comedy set against the backdrop of Atlanta’s music scene, Deadline reports. It’s quite a fitting project, considering Glover is from Atlanta and is quite the musician. Read More
VH1 is celebrating the greatest girl group of all time with a biopic starring Lil’ Mama, Keke Palmer and Drew Sidora as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins.
The trailer for CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story is very promising. It showcases the leading ladies reenacting TLC’s most iconic videos. Despite the backlash, I don’t think the casting could have been better, and the production is impeccable. Read More
While Fox scrambles to find permanent judges for their talent shows, American Idol and The X Factor, NBC is rotating The Voice‘s judging panel with no drama included.
Usher filled Cee Lo‘s rotating chair while he was out releasing cheaply made videos, and Shakira sat in Christina Aguilera‘s warm chair while she was out running from Lotus. All that running paid off, though; Xtina lost a ton of weight.

Producer John Wells made the announcement during a TV Academy Emmy panel on Tuesday night. A Showtime rep followed up by telling THR that Justin Chatwin may return for one or two episodes. Read More
I know nothing about Downton Abbey. Had this post not been preceded by a little research, I probably would have spelled it “Downtown Abby.” Evidently, this likely blunder is synonymous to nails on a chalkboard for fans of the show. Diddy claiming to have joined the show is just as cringe-worthy, too.
Gary Carr was recently announced as the show’s first black cast member, but Diddy incited confusion by claiming he was the first black cast member. Stills of him in a classic suit and sitting with Professor McGonagall and some other lady only incited more confusion. Read More

Zoë Saldaña playing Nina Simone only makes sense to Zoë Saldaña and contrarians. In a recent interview, Aretha Franklin chimed in on the latina actress playing Nina.
AP: Some people are upset because Zoe Saldana is playing Nina Simone in that biopic and they don’t believe she resembles Simone.
Franklin: I did know Nina and I would have liked to see someone with a little more of a likeness and hopefully played the piano. But I don’t know Ms. Saldana’s work and Hollywood can do a lot of things in terms of changing your features and all of that. Read More
If you weren’t aware that 2010 blockbuster Iron Man 2 was a God-awful movie, Screen Junkies’ latest Honest Trailers episode will surely bring you to realization.
Sidebar: Honest Trailers are brazenly honest trailers of your favorite movies. Screen Junkies are a group of people set out to prove that a movie you consider is the best ever created is actually the worst and/or make you realize that you’re a dumbass. Whichever comes first is satisfactory for them. Read More
