There aren’t a ton of original ideas out there in the land of fall TV, but that’s good news for those of you looking for more of the same.
We’ve compiled a list of new shows that sound a lot like… well, old shows, so you can see which match up to your TV tastes.
If you miss "Lost," then try out "The Event"
With an equally ambiguous title, “The Event” is looking to fill the void that “Lost” has left. The main character works to expose a big cover-up, which effects “an eclectic band of strangers” (can you say Jack, Hurley and Sawyer?). Also, this conspiracy could change the fate of mankind forever. (Premieres on NBC September 20 at 9 p.m.)
In an interview with Empire magazine, the three stars of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” – Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, who play Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, respectively – opened up about filming, friendships and finally finishing 10 years of hard work. (Oh, and that highly-anticipated kiss scene.)
“Deathly Hollows,” Watson explained to the U.K. publication, is a far cry from the first six movies in the series. First, it’s split into two parts and took 18 months to shoot. Second, it’s much more emotional.
“The emotional stuff is much harder,” Watson told Empire. “These last two films have been on a completely different level in terms of what they’ve demanded from me physically and emotionally.”
The pairings for “Dancing with the Stars” have been announced, and we’re eager to see which couples flourish and which couples flop. It’s now September, meaning we only have 20 days until the 11th season premiere. Time for these stars to start practicing!
Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower – We’re not sure if Bolton can salsa as well as he can sing, but Hightower was once told she danced so well that she “could make a mannequin look good.” Hightower has danced three seasons and was last paired with “The Bachelor’s” Jake Pavelka.
Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy – With bold moves and a big mouth, Chmerkovskiy can handle strong partners, as shown by season four partner Laila Ali. He’s come close to the trophy twice and will use his self-stated good looks to get there. Oh, and his partner.
Girl meets boy on reality show. Girl falls in love with boy(s). Girl wants to be married, like, “right now.”
At least, that seems to be how the love story goes for “The Bachelorette’s” Ali Fedotowsky. The 25-year-old reality TV star told People that she and winner Roberto Martinez, 26, would elope, if not for worries about disappointing their families.
“We just want to be married,” she said. “We’re just excited for that. We’re like, ‘Let’s be married - right now!’”
We won’t know for sure until Monday, but the Internet is ablaze with rumors about who will be on this season’s cast of "Dancing with the Stars."
The latest alleged dancer is none other than 19-year-old Bristol Palin, E! Online reports.
If that's true, she'd join David Hasselhoff, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Audrina Patridge, Brandy, Michael Bolton, Florence Henderson, Rick Fox, Jennifer Grey, Margaret Cho and Kurt Warner, according to EW.
Don’t let her good looks and charm fool you: Cameron Diaz is the most dangerous celebrity - on the Web, that is.
McAfee, a company that specializes in computer protection, released a report listing the Web’s most dangerous stars. Diaz knocked Jessica Biel, who's currently dating Diaz's ex Justin Timberlake, down to third place from last year’s top spot.
The McAfee Most Dangerous Celebrities study found that with each search for Cameron Diaz, the person searching has a one in ten chance of landing on a website that will infect his or her computer with spyware, viruses or other malware.
