I hope everyone's Monday is off to a good start. I had an incredible weekend and now I have a super busy week ahead of me. But first, some headlines.
On Sunday it was announced that Peter Capaldi will be the 12th Doctor.
This teaser for the new season of Sherlock makes me even more impatient for the show to return:
It was only a matter of time until the big networks started adapting cable's split-season formats. ABC will implement the schedule this year for a number of their major shows.
Trophy Wife's title is meant to be ironic. You'd think ABC would stop being so careless with their titles (Cougar Town, anyone?). Regardless, this show looks really funny.
We could see a show from Nahnatchka Khan, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash on TV next year. The show has received a pilot commitment from Fox.
The Mindy Project could be in for some more big changes.
Male contestants on America's Next Top Model have helped the ratings.
I have Time Warner Cable so I'm experiencing the CBS/Showtime blackout. I wonder how long the two companies will let this go, but for the moment I'm doing alright without either network. Plus: CBS is losing a lot of money every day this continues.
The Simpsons are getting a Lego set.
James Franco wrote about one of my favorite movies, Stand By Me.
Interesting: an unknown sci-fi writer has sparked a bidding war for his high-concept spec script.
I can't believe The O.C. premiered a decade ago.
Sharknado bombed in the box office.
This interactive script for Shaun of the Dead is the best way you can spend your morning.
And for fun, watch the video/short film for Jay Z's "Picasso Baby":
