News of the Day:

It may not have soared at the box office, but there's hope yet for Cassandra Clare's bestselling YA series, The Mortal Instruments, to return to the screen. The fantasy novels are currently being adapted for television, to go into production next year. Could we be looking at the next Game of Thrones?

American Horror Story: Freak Show has delivered. The show broke all FX records with its premiere last Wednesday, and the series has been picked up for a 13-episode fifth season, to air next fall. We just can't get enough of this show, terrifying moments and all.

Tyra Banks is stepping into the cosmetics industry with her own line of easy-to-apply makeup.

Ever wish you could have a real, live person on hand to answer your questions instead of relying on Siri? There's an app for that.

Things are getting retro. Snag some fall and winter apparel from Levi's new Orange Tab collection, which features classic styles from the 60s and 70s that were offered back in the day.
