2020 has been such a blur, it’s easy to forget about things like award shows, but regardless if we’re in a pandemic or not, they’re coming at us in full swing.

Following the 2020 Emmy nominations, the full list of MTV VMA nominations was announced. 

Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga — who dueted on “Rain on Me” this year — are both in the lead with nine nominations each. 

Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, and Taylor Swift were also generously recognized. 

Fittingly, there’s a new category this year called “Best Quarantine Performance” because hey, we’ve all gotten a bit creative in quarantine. 

The show is set for Sunday, August 30 at New York City’s Barclays Center, which again, might seem a little odd to you considering we’re in the midst of a pandemic with numbers of infection surging.

For now, Gov. Cuomo said the event is set for a “limited or no audience.” However, MTV said in a statement, “we are working on several contingency plans to bring music’s biggest night to audiences everywhere.”

My guess is that it’ll be a mix of virtual, remote, and on-site performances that take into account social distancing. We’ll see. 

Check out the full list of nominees below:

Back to Bayside High means celebratory milkshakes at The Max on us!

NBC’s streaming service Peacock announced that it renewed the Saved by the Bell revival for a second season. Peacock TV confirmed the news on Instagram.

The upcoming installment will feature 10-episodes and comes after the initial season proved to be a hit nearly three decades later! 

“I’m thrilled that Saved by the Bell has been renewed,” executive producer Tracey Wigfield said in a statement.

“I’ve been blown away by all the love for the show and can’t wait to go back and make more episodes. Hopefully we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot,” she said. 

Both AC Slater (Mario Lopez) and Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) are back as series regulars, while Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Kelly Morris (Tiffani Thiessen) made recurring appearances.

Fans were even treated to surprise cameos from restaurant owner Max (Ed Alonzo) Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies). 

The only two characters yet to make an appearance are Principal Richard Belding (Dennis Haskins) and Samuel “Screech” Powers (Dustin Diamond).

The news comes after Diamond announced that he has stage 4 cancer. Mario Lopez, who reprised his role of AC Slater in the revival, reached out to Diamond following the news. 

“I connected with Dustin earlier this evening and although the news of his diagnosis is heartbreaking, we remain positive that he’ll overcome this. Praying for him & his family and for a speedy recovery. God Bless,” he wrote on Instagram.

‘This Is Us’ Not Airing Tonight – Here’s When New Episodes Will Return

Published

on

This Is Us a Hell of a Week Part 2 review

Sorry, This Is Us fans, but you won’t be tuning in for a new episode tonight!

NBC has pulled This Is Us Season 5 Episode 7 titled “There” from the schedule. 

The episode was set to be heavily focused on Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley), who was in a car accident while trekking cross-country to be by Madison’s side as she gave birth to their twins. 

The official synopsis reads: “Kevin embarks on a stressful road trip; Jack and young Kevin go to a football training camp.”

Google lists the new episode’s air date as Tuesday, February 2, but that has not been officially announced by the network!

In its place, NBC will air an encore of This Is Us Season 4 Episode 14 titled “The Cabin.”

The network did not provide a reason for the switch, but if we’re taking a wild guess, it either has to do with production reasons amid the coronavirus pandemic (many Los Angeles-based productions have been shutting down temporarily due to a surge in COVID cases) or because of pre-inauguration day coverage. 

If the reason is production-related, delaying the episode might allow the network the air all the episodes in one solid batch instead of spreading them out. 

All the #OneChicago shows – Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med – have also been delayed a week and will not air on Wednesday, January 20. The network will be covering president-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration instead. Episodes will return on Wednesday, January 27. 

However, if you’re looking for something to watch, The Resident will air a brand new episode tonight (January 19) at 8/7c while Nancy Drew and Riverdale will premiere their second and fifth season, respectively, on Wednesday, January 27. We’ll have reviews for all three shows available for you at CraveYouTV.com after each episode concludes!
