Beyoncé Has Been Added to the Super Bowl Halftime Show
If Coldplay felt a little too vanilla to headline the Super Bowl halftime show, well, things just got more fierce, Sasha Fierce! Yes, Beyoncé has officially been added. It’s unclear how much time she’ll get, but you’d have to think she’d at least join them for “Hymn on the Weekend” and “Up & Up” from their new album, “A Head Full of Dreams”, since she actually appears on those songs. “Entertainment Tonight” reports that Bruno Mars is expected to join too, and there may be another guest. Bruno was the headliner in 2014, and Beyoncé had the reins the year before that. Get more here.

M. Night Shyamalan is Bringing Back “Tales from the Crypt”
“Tales from the Crypt” is coming back to TV, but some people aren’t excited about it for two specific reasons: First, it’ll be on TNT, not HBO. And second, M. Night Shyamalan is helping bring it back. There’s no word if they’re bringing back the Crypt Keeper, but the show is going to anchor a two hour block of horror on TNT that Shyamalan will help develop. And to be fair, despite some pretty underwhelming movies over the past several years, Shyamalan came back BIG last year with “The Visit”. It’s a fantastic little horror movie, if you can get past the annoying kids. Get more here.
