Lady Gaga has teamed up with those lovable Muppets for a holiday show.

The show, titled Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, will air on Thanksgiving night (November 28).

Gaga will be perform songs from ARTPOP.  She will also sing a special duet with Kermit. Some of the other Muppets will join her for a special rendition of “Applause.”

Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and RuPaul will also perform with Mother Monster. Actress Kristen Bell also appears in a special sketch with the Muppets and Gaga.

“I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year,” said Lady Gaga. “I knew it just wouldn’t be a complete night of laughter and memories without The Muppets! Can’t wait to see the gang again, and I hope Miss Piggy’s still not mad about Kermit. We’re just friends!”

“What an incredible opportunity!” said Kermit the Frog. “We have a long history with Ms. Gaga, so we jumped at the chance to do a holiday special with her. We won’t even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe-again.”

This special will air from 9:30-11pm ET on ABC.

Official Poster for Season 3 of ABC’s “Scandal”

Shonda Rimes delivers with the new poster for season 3 of Scandal!

After receiving 10,000 retweets, the Head Honchos over at Scandal revealed the poster, which features  Kerry Washington as ‘Olivia Pope.’

The poster has received mixed reviews, as some fans of the show expected to see President Fitz Grant (Tony Goldwyn) on the poster as well.

The caption on the poster, which says “The Secret is Out,” is very telling and it may very well be the reason why Goldwyn was left off.  It could be a foreshadowing of Ms. Pope being solo this season so she can focus on ‘fixing’ herself for a change.

Season 3 of Scandal premieres on Thursday, October 3 on ABC.

Jenny McCarthy in Talks to Join ‘The View’

jnnymcrthy

Jenny McCarthy is reportedly in talks to join the cast of The View next season.

Since announcing her departure from the show, Joy Behar has been absent from the panel quite often, and the ABC talk show has had a series of guest co-hosts with one of them being McCarthy.

The former MTV host has been one of the few guest co-hosts to appear more than once in a  given week and it seems as though the staff over at ABC adores her.

“The cast and crew get a kick out of Jenny,” a set source revealed to US Weekly. “She’s a good fit. She may not be able to carry a show, but she works well with a group ensemble.”

McCarthy is no stranger to hosting, as she has her own talk show on VH1 with comedian Michelle Buteau as her unofficial co-host. Both The View and The Jenny McCarthy show tape in NY, so it is quite possible for the blonde-bombshell to do both.
