The set of Community is getting pretty tense for a sitcom that has a monkey named after a character's breasts.

Chevy Chase is leaving NBC's fan favorite, though he will only be missing from two episodes of the upcoming fourth season. Any chance we can call this a trade and get Dan Harmon back?

Downton Abbey has been renewed for a fourth season, which will also include another Christmas special. Whether you're a fan or not, it's time to accept the fact that Downton Abbey is going to last forever.

Though she's leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak will hold on to her scrap of fame for dear life with a second season of her spin-off show, Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding. The show will get a new name for this season, so be wary before you flip to Bravo.

The fifth season of BBC's Merlin will be its last, and is set to premiere in the U.S. on January 4. Maybe Arthur will find a sword to pull out of a stone (get it? like the movie? never mind).

For the first time, How I Met Your Mother will air an hour-long episode--a holiday episode to be exact. Great, that should give Ted time for three flashbacks, four flash-forwards and up to seven renditions of "we'll get back to that later."

Sienna Guillory of Resident Evil will join the third season of Luther. Of course that doesn't matter, as long as Idris Elba will be there, we're on board.

Fox Searchlight is developing an adaptation of the musical I Dreamed a Dream into a film telling the story of Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle. Let's hope the people behind America's Got Talent don't get any ideas.

In what should be a much more exciting and um, bootylicious, movie, Beyonce is directing a documentary about her life for HBO. And somewhere Kelly Rowland is clutching her Destiny's Child Grammys and crying.

Tyra Banks has announced that she is producing a sequel to her 2000 Disney Channel original movie Life-Size. The sequel will include a performace of "Be A Star," and anyone familiar with the movie should know that this is amazing news. Unfortunately, Lindsay Lohan isn't exactly in a position to return to Disney...

On a somber note, Dallas star Larry Hagman passed away on Friday following a battle with cancer. He was 81 years old.
