  • Let's talk first about Dan Harmon: The Community creator and showrunner, recently dumped by an ungrateful NBC who had had it with his ways, looks like he'll be hired by Fox. He'll be tasked with penning a pilot of a multi-camera sitcom, although details are sketchy. I'm sure part of the reason he was hired is because is an in-demand showrunner, and part of the reason is because Fox wanted to stick it to NBC. More of my thoughts on the hiring here.

  • What about that Dwight Shrute spin-off of The Office? According to an interview with NBC President Bob Greenblatt over on Hitfix, the assumption is that the spin-off will happen and, if Greg Daniels manages to resurrect The Office next season, both shows could co-exist. We've seen character sketches for the spin-off, and it looks fairly broad, which is in keeping with NBC's new "less sophistication, more monkey" strategy.

  • How crazy are Larry Hagman's eyebrows? EW did an entire interview with the makeup artist on Dallas just about those eyebrows. For Hagman's part, he is all about them: " I'm an older person now," he said. "And I can do whatever I damn well want to. So just let 'em grow out and become wild."

    I mention this only because 1) I'm still watching the terrible Dallas reboot, and 2) he's the only character worth watching on it, and 3) people don't give the man enough respect for his acting abilities. How crazy is it that the guy who once played a daffy, love-sick astronaut is now an evil oilman?

  • So, this is what it's like to live in Russia, huh? (The action arrives at the :13 second mark).

  • Sad news for old-school Doctor Who fans: Mary Tamm, the who played Romanadvoratrelundar, has passed away after a long battle with cancer.

  • Finally, I have no idea what to do with this, as I'm both equally parts proud and ashamed: The pull quote on the bottom of the DVD box for Jersey Shore Shark Attack comes from me. It's obviously a sarcastic, and they spelled my name wrong. But then again, JERSEY SHORE SHARK ATTACK. Awesome.
