According to Variety, Fox has pushed up the premieres for both “Glee” and “So You Think You Can Dance” to September 9, 2009. I think this is a smart move. This way “Glee” has a chance to establish itself on the prime time schedule (before the slew of season and series premieres start) and gain an audience. I know I am looking forward to “Glee” so I hope the show is as good as the preview episode that aired in May. 🙂

**UPDATE: It was announced during ABC’s “After the Final Rose” Special that Jillian and Ed plan to get married in a year.”
According to TV by the Numbers, TV viewers wanted to know who Jillian chose on last night’s finale of “The Bachelorette” as it garnered the highest ratings of the night. I must admit…I am glad that Jillian chose Ed. I hope they are still together. I guess we’ll find out in tonight’s “After the Final Rose Special” which is airing at 10 p.m. EST.
In other news according to People Magazine, Jillian’s ring cost $60,000. That’s absolutely insane (in a good way)! Read all about it here. Seriously, do you how much you can buy with the cost of that ring? Wow!
The last month of summer is approaching, yes I know, it went by very fast but hopefully that does not deter you from going to the movies. I know it doesn’t for me. 🙂 Looking at the month as the whole, I find it interesting that some suspense thriller/horror movies are premiering this month as oppose to around Halloween. The movies that fall into this genre include “The Perfect Getaway”, “Halloween II”, and “The Final Destination”. Also a few tween movies seemed to have been thrown in the mix for this month including “Bandslam” with Vanessa Hudgens (“High School Musical)”, and “Post Grad” with Alexis Bledel (“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”).
In my opinion the potential movie blockbusters for the month of August are “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and “District 9” which is produced by Academy Award winning Director Peter Jackson. Seems like the trend for the next year or two will be the return of the 80’s. There are a lot of 80’s movies that are getting remade (i.e. “Footloose” (2010), “Tron Legacy”) as well as 80’s cartoon characters and toys (i.e. “Voltron” (2011), “The Smurfs” (2010)) that are making it to the big screen. Who doesn’t love the 80’s? Although there comes a point where it is over kill. Where has all of the original material gone?
My spotlight picks for the month go to “Julie & Julia” and “The Paper Heart”. “Julie & Julia” stars Academy Award Winner Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Academy Award nominee Amy Adams plays Julie, a woman who decides to cook a recipe a day from Julia Child’s cookbooks for a whole year and write a blog about it. The movie is based on two true stories. “The Paper Heart” stars Michael Cera (“Juno”) and Charlyne Yi (“Knocked Up”) and the premise is Yi making a documentary (within a film) about what exactly “love” is. A possible sleeper hit may be “The Goods: Live Hard. Sell Hard” which stars Jeremy Piven.

Check out the teaser trailer for “Tron Legacy” which premiered at Comic-Con 2009. I have a feeling that this movie may be worth seeing for just the 3D aspect.
Looks like the chances of George O’Malley’s survival have been crushed. The season five finale of “Grey’s Anatomy” left us questioning if George and Izzie will survive and I hoped that both characters would survive, even with T.R. Knight’s departure from the show – now I’m saddened that the story line they were conjuring (for George) will not be seen. The idea was that we would see flashbacks of the moments leading up to George’s accident. Here is an excerpt from EW.com of what “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes envisioned:
In this fall’s season premiere, George will succumb to the injuries he sustained after getting mowed down by that bus in last May’s finale. But that wasn’t supposed to be the last we saw of him. Says Rhimes, the episode was then going to flash back to the hours during which George was missing, from when he left the hospital to when he returned later on as a disfigured John Doe.
“I wanted to see his last day [alive] really badly,” she says. “What I thought was interesting was the idea of, we now know it’s the last day of someone’s life, [so we’re] looking at it differently than [we] would any other time.”
