ReelzChannel and Muse Entertainment are working on a sequel to The Kennedys, but pardon us if we aren't totes thrilled!!
You know we adore everything involving America's greatest family!
Heck, if they plastered President Kennedy and Jackie O's portraits on toilet paper, we'd start wiping with pine cones!
Neverthless, we aren't sure a return to Camelot is necessary!
The first miniseries was a friggin' flop!

Woo! Congrats Kevin Costner!
The oh-so-handsome actor just took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or Movie for his role as Devil in Hatfields & McCoys!!!
The mini-series, which premiered just this past May, drew in millions of viewers week after week… and we can only assume Kevin’s one of the reasons why!
The multi-talented distinguished actor also produces the show, so this is a bit of a double-win for him!
This award makes Kevin’s very FIRST Emmy and we think he’s more than deserving of the honor!
Way to go, Kev!

Move over Jersey Shore, Swamp People is the new king of reality television — all thanks to one $3.5 million gamble during this year's Super Bowl!
Since a pricey 30-second Super Bowl spot aired in February, the History Channel's series about Louisiana families who hunt alligators for a living has increased its viewership by over 1.2 million!
Episodes were already attracting 4 million people, but as of last week, the series had more viewers than NCAA basketball games AND the MTV hit with 5.2 million!
Have U watched Swamp People since the Giants beat the Patriots? If so, did the Super Bowl ad help get your attention?

Just in time for the 50th year anniversary of John F. Kennedy's inauguration into the White House.
ABC has announced it will premiere a primetime special this September featuring never-before-heard tapes of Jacqueline Kennedy talking about the JFK assassination and her years in the White House.
The tapes, recorded in 1964, surfaced when the History Channel announced the $25 million miniseries about the Kennedy family.
Mrs. Kennedy stipulated that the tapes can not be made public until after her passing. They consist of a long conversation she had with historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. shortly after her husbands assassination.
Although at first hesitant, the couples only surviving child Caroline Kennedy is said to be participating in the special.
There should definitely be something interesting insight and secrets revealed during the special, so we can't wait to hear these tapes!
Will U watch ABC's Jackie Kennedy special?
