Get your nostalgia on: 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' coming back as a superhero movie

’90s purists, get out your pitchforks: Sabrina the Teenage Witch is the latest Bush I/Clinton-era pop culture figure to get an “edgy” reboot. What’s next, a reworking of Teen Angel that stars Josh Hutcherson as a buff, moody cherub? (Wait, who am I kidding — I’d totally watch that.)

The good news: At least Michael Bay has nothing to do with it. According to a Deadline report, this new Sabrina will be a magical superhero who spends the movie “coming to terms with her remarkable powers.” The tone of the reboot, which will be produced by the team behind Real Steel,  is reportedly “edgier” than the old TGIF series — and certainly cooler than the 1960s Archie Comics where Sabrina made her debut.

The item doesn’t mention Sabrina’s kooky aunts Hilda and Zelda — but it does reveal that Salem, Sabrina’s wise-cracking cat, will now be a transformed prince who also serves as Sabrina’s love interest. So… no Harvey, then? Cue Nick Bakay’s trademark whimper.

Maybe I’m being too cynical here, PopWatchers. READ FULL STORY

Masters champ Bubba Watson not one to toot his own horn... but he owns the General Lee

Any time a guy named Bubba wins the most revered tournament in golf, it’s a big deal in the world of sports. That Bubba Watson won it in a sudden-death playoff was especially exciting, especially after his insane second shot from behind a tree on the second playoff hole put him position for victory. That he sobbed uncontrollably on the green after winning was touching and that his post-match interviews proved him such a genuine and sweet guy only endeared him more. But that’s not why I was pulling for Watson to edge the equally heroic Louis Oosthuizen… The dude owns the General Lee! And rides it around to tour events. Take a look, Dukes of Hazzard fans.

On the Scene at the GLAAD Media Awards: We were THIS close to seeing John Stamos and Cory Monteith kiss

Laughs, tears, high-kicks, and John Stamos: The Oscars should look to last night’s snappy GLAAD Media Awards in New York City to energize their own ceremony. A whole lot of high heels, patent leather, and sequins packed into the Marriott Marquis in Times Square to honor the people and projects that put forth “the most outstanding images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in the media” (see a full list of winners here).

Although the most tweeted moment of Saturday night’s ceremony was certainly Full House and Broadway star John Stamos bidding thousands of dollars to kiss Glee star Cory Monteith (more on that later), it’s hard to single out one moment as the most memorable. READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games' poll: Did you cry?

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen The Hunger Games, stop reading now. If you have, continue on and tell us how many times you teared up during the movie. We’ve made separate polls for people who’d read the book before seeing the film and people who hadn’t. Will it make a difference? READ FULL STORY

'American Idol': Scotty McCreery covers 'Please Remember Me' for season 11's goodbye song

Reigning American Idol Scotty McCreery never had to suffer an emotional public elimination, but he’s ready to help this year’s contestants through it! He’s recorded season 11′s “goodbye” song, a cover of country ballad “Please Remember Me,” first released by Rodney Crowell in 1995, and made a hit by Tim McGraw in 1999. Watch their videos for the song below. McCreery’s cut will debut on American Idol this Thursday as we watch a montage of the ousted contestant’s time on the show. He’ll perform live on Idol later this season. READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor': Does Courtney stand a chance of changing your mind? POLL!

Tonight is the episode Bachelor fans have been waiting for, The Women Tell All. Courtney — a model known for stealing time with Bachelor Ben on group dates and for after-hours skinny-dipping, and for twisting the knife verbally when she appears to be “winning” — faces her fellow contestants, who have now seen her full antics on TV and are angry that she’s made it into the Final Two. From the promo clips we’ve seen of the women’s equally unappealing pack mentality in action and Courtney being reduced to tears, they haven’t accepted her apology like Ben did. Can you imagine a scenario in which you’d forgive her behavior? Let’s take it to a vote below:  READ FULL STORY

Johnny Keyser and Schyler Dixon's eliminations may have been sad, but they served 'American Idol' well

Last night’s Las Vegas episode of American Idol was easily the most entertaining one of this season, right? For the first time in the last six weeks, I’m legitimately excited about this season’s crop of contestants!

While season 11′s audition rounds felt sloppy and unremarkable — and featured almost no judging! — and Hollywood Week focused much more on group drama than vocal ability, last night’s two-hour show, which winnowed the group down from 70 contestants to just 42, struck a much-needed balance of rehearsal footage, singing, judging, and heartbreaking cuts.

'Parenthood' poll: Max made a friend! Who cried?

On last night’s Parenthood, we watched Max and classmate Micah bond while sitting out gym class. I cheered and got a little misty. When Max, who has Asperger’s, invited Micah over to his house to play videogames, and Micah’s mother told Adam and Kristina that Micah, who has spina bifida, has never had a friend before, I teared up. Truly, it filled me with the amount of joy I usually get watching a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple finally get together after seasons of anticipation. I think I’m even happier for the parents than I am for the boys. I don’t have children, but on some level, having a late father who lost his ability to walk and communicate during a lengthy illness, I understand what it’s like to want so badly to bring joy into someone’s life and the power of the moment when you feel like it’s actually happening. Who else got misty? Poll below.  READ FULL STORY

'The Vow': I didn't cry, but I liked it when Channing Tatum did

What’s more shocking: The Vow‘s opening weekend exceeding expectations, or the fact that you didn’t cry watching it (or did you? poll below!)? I was fully prepared to tear up, but my eyes never got wet. I ended up seeing the film alone, so the only discussion I was privy to afterward was the one I eavesdropped on in the seats in front of me: One woman thought the film didn’t let you get to know the couple (Channing Tatum’s Leo and Rachel McAdams’s Paige) enough before she was thrown through the car windshield and lost her memory of him to get her emotional. Personally, I think I was just distracted thinking about their mutual stupidity: Did she honestly want to have sex in their car, at a stop sign, during a blizzard? That’s why she took off her seatbelt. It seems like she could have waited until he parked the somewhere. Why wouldn’t he have thought to bring in their wedding video as “proof” that she loved him before the accident — or any of the pictures an artist like her probably would have taken of them over the years? Why would he think inviting anyone over to their place on the night she comes home would be a good idea? Why did it take them so long to figure out they should go on a date to get to know each other again? READ FULL STORY
