They're Making A Batman TV Show...Uh, Without Batman
It was just announced today that FOX has purchased Gotham, a TV series chronicling the police force of Gotham City. Presumably inspired by the award-winning comic “Gotham Central,” the show would feature a young James “Jim” aka “The Commish” Gordon and the Gotham City villains we’ve come to know and fear. Noticeably absent? The caped crusader himself.
Other than the occasional kick-ass guest spot, there hasn’t been a great Gotham-centric TV show since the amazing animated series went off the air in 1995. If “Gotham Central” is indeed the inspiration for this new show, then we can expect The Joker, Two-Face, Mad Hatter and The Penguin etc. to join in on the fun. If, however, FOX’s track record with fantasy-based series is any indication, Gotham will be cancelled in under two seasons. And since that’s all we know for now, I’ll be spending the rest of the week thinking of all the viable, mustachioed young leading man I can. The front-runner in my mind? The dreamy and insanely talented Michael Raymond-James (True Blood, Terriers, Once Upon A Time). You can see it there under the denim, can’t you? Sure you can.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
