Apparently CBS doesn't even know how to make a show that's not a procedural anymore.

The network is adapting last summer's awful Cameron Diaz comedy Bad Teacher into a series. Because those 90 minutes just weren't enough.

Fox is also making a strange (and potentially "bad") decision by developing a show based on the video game Battlefield: Bad Company, which follows four soldiers in their life after the military, when their former commanding officer wants them killed. So instead of directly ripping off Last Resort, Fox can just blame a video game.

Syfy has ordered Opposite Worlds, a reality show that will let some contestants live in a utopian future where they get anything they want and others in a dangerous past. So Survivor vs. Real Housewives?

In an attempt to capitalize on the Olympics a few months too late, ABC has ordered a reality show where celebrities will compete in diving. So for any celebrity not even relevant enough to land a spot on Dancing with the Stars, there's this.

Bear Grylls will produce and host a reality competition for NBC, called Get Out Alive. Can't wait to see what memes this will spawn.

Morris Chestnut of V has been cast in a recurring role for the next season of Nurse Jackie. In much more exciting casting news, Brie Larson will appear on Community this season. If she cameos as Envy Adams, she will win the Internet that week.
