'My Generation' gets canned

We guess this is one "Generation" no one wanted to talk about.

ABC's "My Generation" has joined Fox's “Lone Star” in the fall 2010 new show graveyard, as the network has canceled the series after just two episodes.

Apparently the series - which followed the lives of nine high school graduates from Austin, Texas, 10 years after they tossed off their caps and entered the real world - wasn’t attracting an audience.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, ratings were down 31 percent following the poorly rated season opener, with only 3.9 million viewers tuning in for the second episode. As a result, production came to a halt on Friday.

“My Generation” had held the 8 p.m. slot on Thursdays, leading into “Grey’s Anatomy,” and it remains to be seen what will replace the show.

The return of Stevie on 'Eastbound & Down'

“Welcome to the resistance,” Stevie Janowski!

Yes, that’s right. Last night’s episode brought the return of Kenny Power’s most trusted sidekick, fan and man servant, Stevie. But before we get to that, let’s address an issue a few folks seem to be having with “Eastbound & Down” since last week’s premiere.

In the past seven days I’ve had the pleasure of chatting up a few devout followers of the KP gospel about their hopes for season two and their immediate reactions to last week’s first episode. The general consensus came down to two crucial elements: One, a Stevie-KP reunion was a must, and two, more obvious, laugh-out-loud hilarity was due.

Nicki Minaj snaps up three BET Hip-Hop awards

It was ladies night at Saturday’s BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, and Nicki Minaj went home with her hands full.

Along with Warren Buffett’s new best friend, Jay-Z, everybody’s favorite femcee took home three awards: Rookie of the Year, People’s Champ and Made You Look (a sure nod to her radical fashion sense).

A year after debuting at the BET Awards as part of the Cypher series, Minaj stood atop the hip-hop world, and as usual she had nothing but love for the ladies in her acceptance speech. “I’m paving the way for girls,” Minaj said. “I want to thank all the girls of hip-hop.”

The "NCIS" star, whose real name is James Todd Smith, was questioned on his favorite movie (“Star Wars”) and favorite Miley Cyrus song ("'Party in the USA.' It's a real fun song. I just wish my name were in it,” he said.)

Trailer Park gets gritty with Coen brothers' latest

The Oscar-winning Coen brothers, who were behind the acclaimed “No Country for Old Men,” are back with another dusty thriller, "True Grit."

Joel and Ethan Coen directed an all-star cast - including Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld - in the revenge tale of a 14-year-old girl determined to capture her father’s killer.

“True Grit” releases in theaters on Christmas Day, and incidentally, Bridges’ long awaited “Tron Legacy” hits theaters just days earlier on December 17th. Looks like he’ll be racing himself for box office gold!
