Let's be real: There were a ton couplings on Gossip Girl (yet no Dan and a dude, which book lovers know all about), and many of them had (and actually still have) very vocal fans. Are you a Dair or a Chair? Regardless, you, like us, probably have strong feelings about all the Gossip Girl couples the show paraded out over the six-season run on The CW. To celebrate our love for all things posted by that sass monster voiced by Kristen Bell (who turned out to be Dan, which still gives us pause) during E! News' We ♥ TV Week, it's time to revisit these beloved couples, like Dan (Penn Badgley) and Serena (Blake Lively), Nate (Chace Crawford) and Serena, Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester), »
You know you still love it. Though it ended in 2012, the world is still obsessed with Gossip Girl, which launched the careers of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick and gave the TV world some of its most iconic couples (Chuck and Blair, anyone?). Given our recent nostalgia obsession, with revivals of Full House, Gilmore Girls and Boy Meets World nearly breaking the Internet, it wouldn't be too crazy for us to consider hailing a cab back to the Upper East Side, right? We have to be the bearer of less than great news, Gg fans, but executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage haven't really considered rebooting the CW hit series, which ran for six seasons.

Television is hooked on time travel. At this spring’s TV upfronts, every major network except CBS announced that it will air a show that involves time travel during the 2016-17 television season.
NBC will debut “Timeless,” a drama about a group of people who go back in time to alter history by stopping the Hindenburg disaster. Fox has set a midseason premiere for the time-travel comedy “Making History,” executive produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, co-starring Adam Pally and Leighton Meester.
ABC will air “Time After Time,” the television adaptation of a book that speculates over what would have happened had H.G. Wells — who is widely credited for popularizing the idea of time travel with his 1895 novel “The Time Machine” — actually had the ability to travel through time. And The CW has “Frequency,” an adaptation of the 2000 thriller about a father and son communicating across time with this use of a ham radio, »

Everything old is new again on Fox. Now that the network no longer has "American Idol," it's looking to new dramas and comedies to fill that ratings void.
Onetime Fox hits "24" and "Prison Break" return, the former with a new star and the latter as a limited series. Also on deck are adaptations of movies "Lethal Weapon" and "The Exorcist." And to capture the magic that "Empire" brought to Fox, the network has ordered another Lee Daniels' series in "Star."
Here are the trailers for Fox's new shows:
"24: Legacy," with Corey Hawkins as a new agent seeking to save the world from terrorists:

Produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), and written by Julius “Goldy” Sharpe (“The Grinder,” Family Guy), the new comedy Making History follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Two shows in one, it’s both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world. Dan Chambers (Adam Pally, “The Mindy Project,” “Happy Endings”), a computer science professor at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he’s fallen for. »

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.
Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.
Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. »

Upfront week continues with Fox's schedule announcement for next season. Technically, you need three for a trend, but based on Fox's plans and what NBC announced yesterday, it does seem as if we may be heading for a season where the broadcast nets save most of their new material for winter and spring, and lean heavily on returning series in the fall, when the attrition rate tends to be higher. Fox's fall schedule will only have a trio of newbies — two of them, Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist, adapting popular movie series — while the network plans to roll out nine different freshman series — including high-profile sequels to 24 and Prison Break, plus Lee Daniels' first new series since Empire — after the calendar turns to 2017, with both new and returning shows shuttling on and off the air between January and spring to avoid repeats wherever possible. The schedule, night-by-night: Monday: Status quo »

With the current TV season winding down, the networks are preparing for their upfront presentations next week, where they will announce the new fall lineups. In recent years, networks have been getting a jump on the upfronts by announcing their new shows early, and today Fox has revealed six programs that have been given series orders, including shows based on hit movies The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon. The other four shows are dramas Apb and Pitch, along with comedies Making History and The Mick.
The Exorcist series hails from 20th Century Fox Television and Morgan Creek Productions, with Jeremy Slater (The Lazarus Effect) writing the script for this psychological thriller. More than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film solidified itself as the greatest horror movie ever made, The Exorcist returns in series format as a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family's case of horrifying demonic possession. »

Spotted: Sebastian Stan getting Gossip Girl fans hopes up at the Captain America: Civil War special screening. Before he was Bucky Barnes (aka Winter Soldier), Stan was best known as Carter Baizen, one of the bad boys of the Upper East Side on Gossip Girl. And while on the show, he became close friends with many of his castmembers, including Chace Crawford (the duo also starred in the 2006 cult-male-witch film The Covenant together #neverforget), and dated Leighton Meester during the earlier seasons. While the CW hit ended its six-year run in 2012, Gg still has a loyal following, and with revival-fever at an all-time high (Fuller House! Gilmore Girls!), we wouldn't mind seeing a »
