Is Aaron Sorkin trying make everyone hate him? If so: Mission (on the verge of) Accomplished.

Sorkin fired most of the writers from The Newsroom, which only had a team of ten to begin with. It seems that the only writer kept on staff was Sorkin's ex-girlfriend. How very Will McAvoy of him. Let's just hope his ex knows how to properly send an email.

Fox has been contacting past American Idol contestants, including Clay Aiken, Carrie Underwood and Adam Lambert, to see if they are interested in returning to the show in any way. Maybe if they're so desperate they should consider giving one of the judges a white cat?

After ten days, Viacom and DirecTV have found a solution to their contract dispute, returning service to customers who had been missing Viacom channels. Spoiler Alert: on the Teen Mom you missed, Farrah fought with her mom and Amber behaved horribly.

Last night was the season finale of Duets, but you probably wouldn't know that because it had the worst ratings of the series. How could anyone stop watching when Robin Thicke was such a delight?

Jennifer Jason Leigh of Weeds has been cast for the second season of Revenge. Going from a drug-dealing family to a murdering one, clearly she's interested in more serious crimes. Meanwhile, Clea DuVall was cast for Season 2 of American Horror Story. Going from not much recently to this, clearly she's interested in an Emmy snub.
