TV Land is saying farewell to airing reruns of decades-old sitcoms and is now pursuing a different demographic to broaden their audience. With their first hit original series, Hot In Cleveland, ending next month, TV Land executives are looking for new ways to reach a broader spectrum of viewers, as well as reinventing their image. This includes stepping away from the multi-camera sitcom medium and nudging their way into single-camera comedy territory, their first venture being a new series called Younger.

Growing Up

As children, the idea of growing up seems like the most exciting thing in the world. We were always told things like “you’ll understand when you’re older” and bombarded by images of fun activities that we were told only grown ups could do. We thought Peter Pan was out of his mind for never wanting to grow up. But as every year passes by and we get older and older, we start to understand where Peter was coming from, never wanting to grow up.

Music Monday: Zedd (feat. Selena Gomez) – “I Want You To Know”

Over the course of the past few months, European music producer Zedd and Selena Gomez have been teasing the media on many fronts: their rumored budding relationship, and their upcoming music ventures.

Since marking her departure from Hollywood Records with her greatest hits album, For You, and signing on with Interscope Records, Gomez’s musical comeback has been greatly anticipated.

Los Angeles Through a Sacramento Native’s Eyes

Last weekend, in order to escape the pressure and anxiety that school has brought to my life, I decided to treat myself to a little LA adventure. I got coffee from one of my favorite coffee shops, and got lunch from a cafe that I’ve been meaning to try for awhile. I suddenly found myself walking down Melrose Avenue, soy Americano in one hand and cell phone in the other, with the sun beating down on me with my Aldo shades on, walking past lines of parked Mercedes Benzes and BMW’s and passing by the Kardashian’s boutique. It was then that it hit me: I am literally a walking epitome of Los Angeles right now, and the best part is that I didn’t even see it coming. I then became very aware of my surroundings, realizing things I’d hardly given a second thought about before, and realizing that Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley are characters in themselves.

The TrackR: Finding Things Just Got Easier

Music Monday: Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Other than the actual game, one of the things that people look forward to the most about the Super Bowl is the halftime show. Just before this past Thanksgiving, it was announced that Katy Perry would take on the task of performing during Super Bowl halftime. I, myself, am completely indifferent towards the singer, but I’m sure all of her fans (Katy Cats, I think they’re called) were thrilled at the announcement. I wasn’t planning on watching the Super Bowl this year, but curiosity got in the way, and so I tuned in just before halftime to see what Katy Perry came up with.
