Spike Renews ‘Lip Sync Battle’

LSBIn news that should really surprise no one, Spike is renewing one of its newest shows.

According to Variety, the network will be bringing Lip Sync Battle back for another season after just a few outings. Battle has done relatively well for Spike and has done even better on their YouTube channel, which has amassed millions of views. Every week, two celebrities go head to head lip syncing two songs each. It’s up to the audience and commentator, Chrissy Teigen, to choose the winner. LL Cool J serves as host.

Lip Sync Battle is executive produced by John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant, who first introduced the idea as a segment on The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Are you excited for more Lip Sync Battle?

The Vampire Diaries
Because

Original Air Date: Apr 23, 2015

Last week, we ended with the revelation that Lily Salvatore’s traveling “companions” were actually hybrid vampire/witch abomination siphoners who were extremely dangerous. We also saw that Lily Salvatore had the ascendant that could possibly allow her to free her companions. This week, I am glad to report that for the time being, the doomsday hybrid witchpires are still trapped in the 1903 Gemini prison.

We start the episode off with Stefan having tracked down Caroline. He pretends that his mother hasn’t helped turn his humanity back on. Stefan attempts to seduce Caroline so that he can bring her humanity back. Damon arrives in what seems to be a surprise although it’s actually a plan concocted by Damon and Stefan to pretend that Damon has kidnapped both Stefan and Caroline.

With only three episodes left in the season, Scandal gave us a new mystery angle connected to B613 while keeping us dangling about Jake’s odds at survival and showing us how much more terrible Rowan could get. All the while, Mellie’s Senatorial campaign hits a snag as Sally Langston returns and offers her two cents.

Check out my top moments of the episode:

I have to admit that I’m confused. In the past, the Top 10 Idol contestants go on tour. Now it’s sounds as if it will be the Top Five.

Plus, the producers play out the tension with Quentin during last week’s episode. It’s way overplayed. But will it mean the end for Quentin?

The theme is Arena Anthems. Contestants also had a chance to tell their sob stories (single mothers play a huge role). Then they get a walk out on the Nokia Theatre stage, the place of the finale.

Here is how they did:

Along with the renewal also came news of a showrunner change, as Steven S. DeKnight is set to step down as showrunner of the Marvel series and two writers for season one, Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will be stepping up for season two.
