The same Internet that's always accused of killing ratings may actually be resurrecting cancelled shows.

Mourning the loss of Pan Am and desperate to find out what would've come of the cliffhanger-ish finale? You may be in luck. Amazon is in talks to continue ABC's cancelled show through its online streaming. Somewhere, a few vintage Playboy bunnies are getting very, very angry.

Apparently, American Idol is (finally) losing some steam. Last night's finale was its lowest rated ever, though it still pulled in 21.5 million viewers and beat the crap out of The Voice's finale.

In case American Horror Story wasn't terrifying enough for people, classic horror film The Exorcist is being turned into a TV show.

Don't worry Chuck fans, Zachary Levi is coming back to the silver screen. He and his aptly-named Nerd Machine will host All Access Live specials on Spike, with coverage of Comic-Con, the Electronic Entertainment Expo and the Consumer Electronics Show.

Sony's super upbeat memo to Community stars detailing how to discuss showrunner Dan Harmon's firing has been leaked, and now I feel like I've been hearing from the Dopple-deaner all this time.
