Whoa, is it awards season again already?

Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, Homeland, Portlandia, and Treme were all recipients of the Peabody Award this year. For those of you keeping score, that's Hipsters & Geeks: 1 and Everyone Else: 0.

It's a bad time for Laurie Forman to be incarcerated. Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama will reunite for Fox's 25th Anniversary Special, which will air on April 22. Just as long as they keep the cast of That '80s Show out of it.

Bravo announced eleven new and eight returning unscripted series, along with two new scripted projects in development for 2013. My guess is that they're all either about a chef or someone with too much money to function. Maybe one of them is about rich chefs who double as housewives in Miami?

More Sorkin snark coming soon! Aaron Sorkin's drama The Newsroom will debut in June two weeks after the True Blood season premiere.

Oxygen just announced 14 new contestants for Season 2 of The Glee Project including a paraplegic contestant, a blind contestant and a 22-year-old contestant who wears a promise ring. Enter your own rejected first-string Warbler singer here.

Michelle Obama will return to The Colbert Report on Wednesday. Clearly, he enjoys discussing J.Crew and childhood obesity.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse will star in the CBS comedy pilot Friend Me as a Bloomington, Indiana native who moves to Los Angeles to work for Groupon. Somehow, I always imagined that's how McLovin would end up.

VH1 has an original pilot coming out that's not a reality show and kind of sounds... good? Unheard of! The network has greenlit its new pilot Bounce set in the world of professional basketball dancers. On second thought, this sounds like a TV adaptation of about ten different movies I can name off the top of my head.
