Well, this is just a bit of a slap in the face to anyone who wants to work in television.

Starz is developing a drama called Power that will be executive produced by 50 Cent. Yes, 50 Cent. Although, the series does center on a nightclub, so it is within his area of expertise.

As children (okay and some adults) still mourn the series finale of iCarly, Nickelodeon has picked up a spin-off, Sam & Cat, in which Sam becomes roommates with Victorious character Cat Valentine. Unfortunately, Spencer will not be their guardian.

On January 1, TLC will premiere The Sisterhood a reality show that follows a group of wives of Atlanta preachers. What doesn't qualify for a TLC reality series?

Seth MacFarlane will guest voice on an episode of The Simpsons, for a night that Fox executives have been dreaming about for years. MacFarlane also revealed that there will definitely be a Family Guy movie in the near future--unless someone at The Simpsons can talk him out of it.

Mob Wives Chicago was cancelled by VH1 and will not have a second season. But watch out for another Big Ang show, because VH1 can't give good news without immediately ruining it.

NBC announced that the hour-long series finale of 30 Rock will air on January 31. Excuse us, we have to go talk to some food about this.

Manu Bennett of Spartacus was cast on Arrow as a major character from the comic. By the end of this season, Arrow will essentially be a TV version of Magic Mike... bring it on.

Home Improvement's Richard Karn will appear on Tim Allen's current show, Last Man Standing. This is a very good week for the '90s.

Carrie Underwood will star in NBC's live broadcast of The Sound of Music as Maria von Trapp. Because if any movie is long overdue to be ruined, it's The Sound of Music.
