"The Royals" marks E!'s first entry in the original scripted drama series game when it premieres Sunday, March 15, and as the network highlights the annual Christmas address by Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley), who says, "I'm supposed to tell you what a wonderful year it's been. I'm supposed to smile and stick to the script. But the truth is, as a family, as a monarchy, we're hanging on by a thread," we can't help but prepare to witness the next great soapy drama!
Millions of viewers have helped make "Game of Thrones," "The Walking Dead," "The Big Bang Theory," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Gotham" just a few of the most watched shows on TV, but according to TorrentFreak.com, they also top the list of the most downloaded (i.e. pirated) shows on BitTorrent sites.
Fans of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal" and "How to Get Away with Murder" are likely going through withdrawals while anticipating the return of their favorite TGIT dramas, as evidenced by a newly released promo from the network with stars from all three shows reminding viewers of the Thursday, January 29 return of each.
"General Hospital" is littered with talented individuals who can not only act circles around anyone who may appear next to them on screen, but they can also sing as well, as evidenced by the Nurses Balls and even ABC Daytime's now defunct Broadway Cares charity events. Jason Thompson, who portrays Patrick Drake on the daytime drama series, is no different.
Earlier this month we gave you your first look at "Days of our Lives" alum Casey Deidrick (ex-Chad DiMera) in MTV's upcoming suspense thriller, "Eye Candy," starring Victoria Justice ("Victorious"). The network has now released the official trailer of the series, which debuts Monday, January 12 at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
On Thursday, January 1, New Year's Day, spend a night with "Days of our Lives" alum Chandler Massey (ex-Will Horton), who is set to appear on the NBC comedy "Bad Judge," starring Kate Walsh as a “bad judge” who really isn't all that bad.
Scheduled to return from its midseason break on Wednesday, January 28 for the remaining six episodes of its fourth season, Soap Opera Network has learned that "General Hospital's" Billy Miller (Jason Morgan) will appear in the season finale episode of USA Network's "Suits."
When several major theater chains stated they wouldn't be showing "The Interview" upon its Christmas Day release, following threats by hackers who claimed responsibility for the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment last month, after it became abundantly clear that the film was at the center of a massive cyber attack on the studio, Sony Pictures reversed its decision to pull the film altogether and instead opted last week to release the film as planned. As a result, the film has raked in roughly $15 million in online sales and rentals, with more than 2 million downloads, and an estimated $2.8 million in ticket sales from smaller theater chains.
To kick off 2015 in style, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will air all-day marathons of several programs during the month of January including "Hart to Hart," "Diagnosis Murder" and "Murder, She Wrote." The network will also air marathons of its popular original mystery movies, including Kellie Martin's "Mystery Woman" series.

As it prepares to close out 2014, which included the series enders of such noteworthy programming as "True Blood," "The Newsroom" and "Empire," HBO has released its annual year-ender video that teases what's to come in 2015 to the premium cable network.
Now through Wednesday, December 24, viewers of CBS' "The Price is Right" can enter for a chance to win a Monogrammed Bathrobe from Linum Home Textiles courtesy of the popular game show.
Since leaving NBC's "Days of our Lives" earlier this year, actor James Scott (ex-EJ DiMera) reteamed with singer Roxanna for her music video "Here with Me," following their 2012 collaboration, "Unforgotten," and now the actor is one of several cast members in Audible's free 1 hour and 13 minute long audio dramatization that vividly imagines and reenacts the famous, impromptu World War I Christmas Eve truce declared by rank-and-file British and German soldiers in 1914. The release commemorates the 100th anniversary of said truce.
