Fall TV Preview
Mary J. Blige How to Get Away With Murder

TVLine Items: Mary J. Blige Visits HTGAWM, Bill Nye Talk Show and More

Mary J. Blige will learn How to Get Away With Murder this fall.

The Grammy-winning singer — who played the Wicked Witch of the West in NBC’s The Wiz Live! — will guest-star during Season 3 of the Shondaland series, our sister site Deadline reports.

As is often the case with HTGAWM, details about Blige’s character are being kept under wraps.

How to Get Away With Murder returns Thursday, Sept. 22, at 10/9c on ABC.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Netflix will premiere the talk show Bill Nye Saves the World in Spring 2017. In each episode, Nye will explore a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths and refuting anti-scientific claims.

* Jason Ritter (Parenthood) has landed a recurring role in executive producer David E. Kelley’s Amazon drama Goliath, Deadline reports. The actor will play wry-but-savvy FBI Special Agent Joe Farley in the series about the ultimate David vs. Goliath battle fought in the 21st century American legal system.

* Kristoffer Polaha (Ringer, Life Unexpected) will guest-star on Fox’s new drama Lethal Weapon as a special agent with the ATF who lends his expertise to Riggs and Murtaugh, per The Hollywood Reporter.

* Fox’s The Mick has undergone a slight tweak ahead of its midseason berth, tapping actor-comedian Scott MacArthur to take over the recurring role of Jimmy from Nat Faxon (who was not expected to continue with the half-hour comedy if it were ordered to series). Jimmy is the degenerate on-again, off-again boyfriend of Mickey (star Kaitlin Olson).

    Ugh I’m so tired of Bill Nye being considered a scientist.

    I’m betting that Mary J. Blige will be Annelise’s sister. Who probably knows lots of her secrets.

    God I love it. From the guy who says climate change deniers SHOULD BE PUT IN PRISON and actively participates in trying to destroy the life of true scientists who are simply trying to get the politicians (sorry scientific consensus). 4 different email frauds with admitted cooked data, temperatures decreasing since 1998, the inventor of the “temp rise” portion of the model spending years evaluating another scientist’s argument and refuting his findings (basically he was in the cult of global warming and just recently realized a fundamental error in the math of the model….so a doubling of CO2 (aka what humans and animals need to SURVIVE) results in a .5 degree rise in temp, not 3 degrees as previously reported. That’s not even mentioning the fact that they have tried this warming or cooling argument on America 8 different times in the 1900’s alone (only problem is people weren’t dumb enough to simply have faith and actually did their own research on things).

    Do you guys know that the UN VOTED that the sun doesn’t affect climate years ago? Look it up if you don’t believe me. Please just use a little logic and rational thought from time to time….PLEASE!

    Oh boy I can’t wait to see all the BS we get from this show.
