Oh yeah!  It’s time to break out the oversized drinking vases and fill em’ high with your best red as TBS have announced that Cougar Town (why that name?!) will be back with an all-new season 5 on January 7th!

I can’t say when Channel 7 plan to air the show…we were lucky enough to get most of season 4 at like, 11pm on Thursday nights…that said, I suppose we should be oh-so-grateful it aired at all here.

Anyways, don’t listen to what the cul-de-sac crew ask you to do in the exclusive clip from EW.com.  I say don’t wait until Jan 7th, instead, drink everyday up-to and including Jan 7th to celebrate!

Angela Lansbury Lays Down The Law on Murder She Wrote Remake

Angela Lansbury.  God love her!  I think, like most actresses her age, she’s been there, done that and seen enough to comfortably tell it like it is without the worry of any form of backlash.  I guess it’s why she’s come out against NBC’s idea to remake the iconic classic 80’s murder mystery series Murder She Wrote that made her a household name.

While she’s not so much against the idea of a remake, calling it ‘Murder She Wrote‘ is a big mistake according to the legendary star who spoke recently with The Guardian.  “I suddenly became a worldwide-known character as Jessica Fletcher and really built an enormous audience, which I have to this day,” the 88-year-old said in a weekend telephone interview from her New York home. “That was the thing that really made me a star in the minds of everybody.”

Lansbury, who starred in the show from it’s start in 1984 to 1996, earned 12 consecutive Emmy nominations for her role as writer and sleuth Jessica Fletcher so it’s no surprise she’s somewhat sensitive when it comes to the talk of the shows ‘re-invention’.

I think it’s a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote,” Lansbury said, “because Murder, She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person

So I’m sorry that they have to use the title – even though they have access to it and it’s their right.”

Good on ya Angie!

Stevie Nicks Casts a Spell on American Horror Story: Coven

Stevie Nicks will appear on American Horror Story: Coven

Get out your tambourines, your shawls and beads because Fleetwood Mac lead singer Stevie Nicks has been confirmed to guest star on American Horror Story: Coven!

Coven co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted “Guess who’s visiting the coven?  The legendary Stevie Nicks!”

While no further details were revealed, the show has been referencing Nicks quite regularly with character Misty Day, played by Lily Rabe, obsessed with the singer and the classic song ‘Rhiannon’ in which she cites as being the inspiration for her witchy ways.

It’s not the first time a character on screen has been influenced by the ways of the legendary singer.  Back in 2001, an indie movie called Gypsy 83 saw Sara Rue as a young outcast obsessed with Nicks and had a dream to one day attend the ‘Night of 1000 Stevies’ in New York.

American Horror Story: Coven, airs Monday Nights, 9:30pm on 11.
