Deadline says that ABC is close to ordering a series from Bryan Singer and The L-Word creator (which I believe is when AfterEllen readers and contributors tell us to run). The Black Box follows a successful neuroscientist who hides her mental illness from the world.
I was able to go with season two as the “Our judges were smoking crack
when they aufed Anthony Ryan” season, I don’t know what they can offer this season.
Buzzeed asks if there are enough worthwhile Project Runway designers to justify a third season of Project Runway All Stars. Since their answer includes suggestions like Vincent Libbretti and Angela Keeslar (but my all-time fave Diana Eng only gets an honorable mention), I’d say the answer is no.

The show, now titled “Live With Kelly and Michael,” averaged 3.243 million viewers in the April 25-May 22 sweep period — up 8% from last year when it was a solo Kelly Ripa fronting “Live With Kelly.” It also drew a larger audience than the final two May sweeps of “Live!” hosted by Regis Philbin and Ripa, according to Nielsen.
The strong perf in its first year after Strahan become the permanent successor to Regis Philbin marks a big win for Disney’s syndie arm in successfully reinventing, for the second time, its lucrative daytime franchise. “Live” went into national syndication in 1989 with Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford as hosts; Ripa replaced Gifford in 2001.

Mariah Carey is all about sharing candid, intimate shots of her private life and yesterday was no different: The diva posted a photo to Twitter of herself cozying up to her mother, Patricia Hickey, while holding her daughter, Monroe.
Carey captioned the multi-generational shot with "So much love.. with my mommy and my daughter" and ended with three emoji hearts.
A couple of months ago, Carey celebrated her mother's 76th birthday in style as the two attended Broadway's "Phantom of the Opera" and then walked around Lincoln Center in New York.
The former "American Idol" judge has also been vocal about her love for her little girl, 2, and gushed about her on "Live with Kelly and Michael" in March. "[Monroe] tries to put my shoes on," she said. "She always chooses the most sparkly ones."

Howard Stern got Katie Couric during his Sirius Xm radio show to reveal that at some point there were “cautious overtures” from NBC about her returning to Today, where she spent 16 years. The morning show has had its share of troubles, from ratings declines to backlash over the ouster of Ann Curry. At one point before ABC signed Couric to their long-term deal, there had been discussions about her and her former Today cohort Matt Lauer reuniting for her syndicated talk show but never grew beyond that. »

The audience at "Live with Kelly and Michael" got a special treat Tuesday (May 28). Tyler Perry was the guest, he was there promoting his two new TV series, both of which are premiering on Own, Oprah Winfrey's network. At a certain point Perry tried to get Oprah on the phone for the two hosts, but the connection was bad.
Oprah solved that problem by walking onto the stage, much to the surprise of the audience and the hosts. Kelly Ripa repeatedly tried to give Oprah her chair, before Michael Strahan got on all fours to offer himself as a footrest for the former talk show queen.
Really, that actually happened on television. Strahan, a former NFL player and Super Bowl champion, got down on all fours to become a human footrest.
It was a very rare talk show appearance for Winfrey, who ended her own show in 2011, after 25 years. »
Oprah Winfrey is full of surprises. No, she didn't hand out any cars on Tuesday, but the former talk show queen did make an unexpected appearance (her first!) on Live With Kelly and Michael, thereby bringing joy to the entire studio audience and, of course, cohosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. The visit came thanks to Tyler Perry, who was there to chat up his new series, The Haves and the Have Nots, on Winfrey's Own Network. "There are so many things I've always wanted to ask you, but now that you're here, they're out of my head," a stunned Ripa told Winfrey. "I'm so delighted to be here," Winfrey replied before declaring that Strahan and Ripa are now »

Dancing With The Stars may have hit its lowest finale ever on Tuesday night, but it helped provide a nearly two-decade high to Good Morning America. With DWTS winners on the show on Wednesday, the ABC morning series continued its dominance over rival Today by beating the NBC show by 1.6 million viewers. That’s the largest single-day total viewership spread Gma has had in fast affiliate results over the NBC show since May 18, 1994. Good Morning America pulled in 6.1 million total viewers compared to Today’s 4.5 million. Back on that May day in 1994, Gma had 5.7 million viewers over Today’s 3.8 million. Until Wednesday, the biggest spread between the two was on November 28, 2012, when Gma’s 5.7 million viewers topped Today by 1.3 million. Gma had DWTS winners from last season on that day too. Over the month of May 2013, Gma was up 51% in the key 25-54 demo over last May while the Today »

In the sea of real celebrities at Cannes for the annual film festival, one fake found his way into the invite-only event, tricking organizers and partygoers alike.
At the onset of the festival, it appeared that Psy, the Korean singer famous for "Gangnam Style," was in attendance, hitting up festival parties and events and posing for pictures with festival attendees and other celebrities. But it's since been revealed that the man wasn't Psy at all. Instead, he's an impostor coasting on his similar appearance to the singer and a good costume.
"Seems like there's another Me at cannes ... say Hi to him," the real Psy tweeted on Wednesday (May 22). The musician has been otherwise occupied in the U.S., appearing at the Billboard Music Awards and visiting "Live with Kelly and Michael."
The impostor, wearing a blue blazer, white pants and Psy's signature sunglasses, was identified as the singer by »
Maybe blonds really do have more fun. After experimenting with a blond pixie cut last summer, Elisabeth Moss went back to brunette nearly two months after trying out her new 'do. And while the jury's still out on whether gentleman prefer blondes, it appears the Mad Men star definitely does, as she debuted lighter locks—yet again!—for an appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael on Monday. Her new hair color is not quite as platinum as her original dye job, but we think the slightly more toned down look suits her perfectly. We're also mad about the effortlessly breezy sideswept styling, as well as the soft pink lip the star sported with her new look. »
