Confession: I love Center Stage. A lot. Like “I downloaded Jamiroquai’s ‘Canned Heat’ for when I need to get pumped up” a lot. I even watched the sequel Turn It Up when it premiered (exclusively) on Oxygen.

I know the films aren’t high art. All I ask for is dance sequences. Lots of them. (Sorry, Starz’s Flesh and Bone — you needed 80 percent less drama and 100 percent more dancing.) So the opening minutes of Lifetime’s threequel movie On Pointe on Saturday were a promising start, »
17 years ago today, Trekkies said goodbye to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It was on June 2, 1999 that the series finale of DS9 aired. The series was a moderate success during the seven seasons it was on the air, and it didn’t win over every Star Trek fan. It was different in many key ways from Trek shows that came before it, and that made it divisive. Set on a space station instead of aboard a starship with more serialized rather than standalone storytelling, it was a darker show, dealing with flawed characters and moral complexity. Its influence on Battlestar Galactica is evident, and that shouldn’t be a surprise — BSG co-showrunner Ronald D. Moore got his start with three Star Trek series, including co-executive producing DS9. Also an alum of DS9: Bryan Fuller, who will be showrunning the new CBS Star Trek series premiering next year. (Yes, he »

It’s been a busy week in Hollywood! Check out some highlights below and then head off to see Deadpool again. We know you were at the Thursday previews … We all were, which is why Ryan Reynolds’ revamped superhero broke box-office records. The $12.7 million dollars it raked in Thursday night was more than any other R-rated movie had in the whole history of ever. Both fans and critics are in love with it. Even Last Golden Girl Standing Betty White raved about it! (Warning: Nsfw language, so listen with your earbuds!)

It's official: Trekkies and Trekkers across the net are over the moon about CBS's announcement Tuesday that Bryan Fuller will take up the mantle of showrunner on CBS's forthcoming Star Trek series. Indeed, the writer/producer's connections to the franchise run deep. Though best known for creating such cult TV shows as Pushing Daisies, Wonderfalls and the recently-canceled Hannibal, Fuller is not only a self-professed lifelong fan of the Gene Roddenberry-created franchise but wrote 22 episodes of Deep Space Nine and Voyager between 1997 and 2001. "I would say that there was an audible sigh of relief from the Star Trek fan community," said Joe Outlaw, spokesperson for the international Star Trek fan club The Federation. "In general, I say that having Bryan Fuller involved, because of his historical publicly stated involvement with Star Trek, his background, his commitment to the traditional Star Trek universe, and...the involvement of Alex Kurtzman, who »
