Demi Lovato to Star in NBC Comedy Series 'Hungry'

Demi Lovato is heading back to television!

The 28-year-old entertainer, who previously starred in the Disney Channel series Sonny with a Chance, will be leading the upcoming NBC comedy series Hungry.

The network has given the project a put pilot commitment, which means that if they decide not to air it, the network will have to pay a penalty. That means it’s likely that the show will get picked up!

THR reports that Hungry will follow a group of friends who belong to a food issues group and help each other as they look for love, success and that one thing in the refrigerator that will make it all better.

Demi most recently appeared in a guest starring role on the final season of Will & Grace.

HBO Max Denies 'Harry Potter' TV Show Reports, But It's Seemingly Still Happening

Don’t get too excited yet about the Harry Potter television series because HBO Max and Warner Bros. have denied the rumors are true.

It was reported that a live-action series based on the Harry Potter world is in the works for the streaming service and that “broad ideas have been discussed,” according to THR.

Warner Bros. and HBO Max released a joint statement saying, “There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform.”

Variety is now reporting that despite the statement, “multiple sources have confirmed that the project is in the very early stages.”

It’s not clear what the focus of the show would be, but we’re pretty sure that fans will be interested in anything that is made. The franchise’s eight movies grossed nearly $8 billion at the worldwide box office and the two movies in the Fantastic Beasts spinoff series have grossed nearly $1.5 billion combined.

ABC Moves 'Grey's Anatomy's Return Back A Week in March

The return of Grey’s Anatomy has been delayed.

The long running show, which is currently in its 17th season, was originally slated to return on March 4. Now though, the show is set to return just one week later on March 11.

The show took its mid-season break in the the middle of December, and just as the season hit the climax with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) battling COVID-19 and slipping in and out of her medically induced coma.

“It’s not something that we take lightly and we don’t want to feel like Meredith is being let off the hook too easily,” executive producer Andy Reaser shared. “The virus keeps everyone guessing and it’s relentless, so it’s going to take relentlessness to fight it.”

Grey’s Anatomy will return on Thursday, March 11 at 8/7c on ABC.

Food Network Has Removed New Season of 'Worst Cooks In America' For This Reason

Food Network has decided to pull all the content relating to the most recent season of its popular competition series, Worst Cooks In America.

The decision came after it was revealed that the champion, Ariel Robinson, was charged with the homicide of her three-year-old adopted child.

Ariel, or Ari as she went by on the show, won the $25,000 during last year’s season 20 that aired just a few months ago.

She and her husband, Jerry, were formally charged with homicide by child abuse. According to reports, it revealed that the couple had inflicted a “series of blunt force injuries” on the child.

After her win, Ariel and Jerry added three children to their family in March 2020. However, it’s not clear if one of them was the child in question.

Food Network has yet to comment on the situation, but has pulled all content related to Season 20 of the show. It is also not available on streamers Discovery+ or Hulu or their YouTube page.

One of the biggest Food Network stars just recently passed away.

The record was previously held by DC Legends of Tomorrow, which debuted in 2016.

“With its 2.43 million viewers, Walker also pulled in the largest audience of any premiere on the network since The Flash‘s season 4 debut in 2017,” the outlet added.

“Standing in Supernatural‘s old time slot, Walker scored the CW’s best total viewership in the Thursday 8 p.m. time period since 2016. And with the Legacies season 3 premiere following in the 9 p.m. slot, the CW landed its most-watched Thursday in almost three years. (It also marked Legacies‘ best total audience in nearly a year.) Walker goes down as the single most-watched episode of any show on the CW network since Jan. 1, 2018.”
