Twenty-five years after he starred as Valentine McKee, Philly's Kevin Bacon is working on  a TV reboot of  the sci-fi franchise "Tremors," reports Entertainment Weekly. 

 Before anyone gets too excited, this is a show that's so far only in development and is still being shopped to networks. Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions are involved and Andrew Miller will write the script. Bacon would star and be an executive producer.

It if it pans out, it would mean a return to television for Bacon, whose grisly Kevin Williamson drama "The Following" never developed into quite the hit Fox had anticipated.

Ted Danson co-stars in the current season of FX's "Fargo"

With four episodes to go in the current season, FX has ordered a third edition of its critically adored anthology series "Fargo," and, yes, creator Noah Hawley is still on board.

No word yet on whether any of the cast will return -- the first two seasons haven't just had a high body count, but they've taken place in different eras, so that while there's been some character overlap, different actors have played those characters.

Inspired by the film by Joel and Ethan Coen -- who remain executive producers on the series -- "Fargo" purports to tell a true crime story in which "at the request of the survivors, the names have been changed. Out of respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred."

Republican front-runner Donald Trump has come under fire for comments he made about requiring Muslims in the United States to register in a national database, telling a reporter, “I would certainly like to implement it. Absolutely.”

Trump tried to back away from those comments on Friday, suggesting on Twitter that “I didn’t suggest a database - a reporter did.” But that didn’t stop Bill Maher from blasting the outspoken presidential nominee on his HBO show.

“He floated the idea of closing down mosques, but he’s going to do it his way: he’s going to buy them, turn them into casinos, and then slide them into bankruptcy,” Maher said during Friday night's "Real Time." “He’s kind of walking this back, but he was talking about this yesterday—setting up different places across the country for every Muslim to register so they can be tracked. This is going to take a lot of manpower. It sounds like we’re going to have to hire Mexicans!”

December is looking pretty hot for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

Bill Maher talks about the deadly terrorist attacks on Paris during a live broadcast of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on (HBO)

Friday night, ISIS terrorists launched a coordinated attack in Paris that massacred at least 127 people, and injured more than 200 more.

During a live broadcast, “Real Time with Bill Maher” host Bill Maher asked a panel, consisting of Dylan Ratigan, Michael Steele and Jay Leno, “I’m going to ask you this question that people asked after 9/11, because I don’t think we still know the answer: Why do they hate us?”

Ratigan, the only panelist to speak up, brought up the United States’ ties with Saudi Arabia as one reason Islamic Terrorists are angry with western countries.

Another crime show is coming to a living room near you. This time Wilmington, Delaware will be the set for “Murder Town,” reports

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the small city has been pinned with that term. In December 2014, Newsweek published an article titled, “Murder Town USA (aka Wilmington Delaware)” which extensively detailed the crime and violence in the city.

ABC has only ordered a pilot, which Jada Pinkett Smith will star as a district attorney in the drama.

Michael Keaton appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, Nov. 9.

Maybe Michael Keaton was a bit perturbed that the gentleman waiting on him at the cellphone store would rather watch “Spider-Man” than notice that he was standing in front of Batman for heaven’s sake!

Whatever the reason, that cellphone cashier may have sparked the next great battle of the superheroes.

While on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Keaton recalled that rather than helping fix his shattered screen, the worker looking at Keaton’s phone was more enthralled with the movie on the screen across the store, an installment of “Spider-Man,” than waiting on his equally super customer.

Rydal’s own Bradley Cooper appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night, discussing everything from some of his first Philly-area jobs to his grandmother, who apparently had a pretty stellar physique.

Well, kind of.

“She was a very big, small woman, who had arms like Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Cooper told Kimmel. “She was like an Ewok who had, like, Schwarzenegger arms.”
