-Fox is going to stop reporting overnight ratings— which is a bold move. Personally, I still think they’re important for indicating people’s viewing priorities, but whatever.
-The trailer for Shameless season 6 is here. As much as I liked the last season I was going to drop this one because #peakTV, but then in the promo Dylan McDermott takes off a pair of panties with his teeth and goddamit I’m back in!
-Speaking of peak TV, I was following a Twitter convo between TV critics about all the shows they have to catch up on before compiling their year-end ‘best of’ lists, and one of them put it all in a Google doc. I think I watch too much TV, but I haven’t seen half of these.
–Jenny McCarthy will probably not return to The View next season because she’s horrible and the audience knows it.
-North Korea has threatened “merciless” retaliation if Seth Rogen and James Franco‘s new movie The Interview is released, calling the film “an act of terrorism” (which, frankly, could describe any of James Franco’s recent art projects.)
–Donnie Wahlberg deserves some serious brownie points. He helped Jenny McCarthy change the news surrounding her by popping the question.
-It’s not everyday that a celebrity’s suicide attempt involves a severed penis.
-You know, if I was going to trust anyone to whip Justin Bieber into shape, it’d be The Office’s Craig Robinson so I approve of this friendship.
-I just assumed that it was the work of a bored intern, but it turns out William Shatner really has been live-tweeting CW shows. He started doing it for Supernatural because he likes building up small sci-fi shows, and then it just snowballed. This explains why he and Sam Witwer are always tweeting at each other (adorably, I should add).
–Channing Tatum may play Gambit, which would be a lot more exciting if Gambit wasn’t THE WORST.
–Amy Schumer and Josh Charles did an Aaron Sorkin spoofset in a fast food restaurant and it’s perfection. If you’re in Canada you may have to Hola/Media Hint/TunnelBear/whatever to get around the geo-blocking, but it’s totally worth it.
-The cast of Roswell is reuniting at the ATX Television Festival and it makes me way more excited than what’s probably acceptable. If I find out that Katherine Heigl was intentionally not invited, my head might actually explode.
-Save the cheerleader, save the world? Not anymore. Hayden Panettiere was NOT asked to appear NBC’s Heroes reboot. (Their loss. She was the only reason I kept watching Nashville for way longer than I should have.)
