NBC is rather charmingly returning to the time-honored tradition of casting a female as the boy who never grew up. Girls' Allison Williams will take the lead role in Peter Pan Live!, NBC's next live musical which they are putting an official exclamation point at the end of. The studio is hoping to grab the same sort of numbers their Sound of Music Live! brought in, although they're probably hoping for better reviews. Good luck, Allison Williams. May your Peter Pan be an inspiration to anyone out there who has trouble with the thought of growing up ... Discuss

 

Comedian Jim Gaffigan is headed to TV Land. The cable network has ordered 10 episodes of The Gaffigan Show—which will re-air on Comedy Central a week after their TV Land debut. Based on his book Dad Is Fat, the single-camera sitcom follows “one man’s struggle in New York City to find a balance between fatherhood, stand-up comedy, and an insatiable appetite.” And by appetite, we can only assume they are referring to a diet consisting entirely of bacon ...

It’s true that Shark Week—Discovery Channel’s annual ode to shark-themed programming—likely jumped the shark last year with its fake Megalodon documentary, but at least this year, their not hiding the fact they’ve sold out. The network has teamed with Dunkin’ Donuts (because, why not?), to release this Shark Week-themed donut that slightly resembles a life preserver. As Adweek points out, “The partnership extends to the Dunkin' logo on the Shark Week page, too—it's mostly the same, except it's had a bite taken out of it, and the slogan at the bottom reads, ‘Shark Week runs on Dunkin'’ (rather than ‘America runs on Dunkin’’).” Get it? Get it?!

Also, because, you know, the kids are really into this social media thing, they’re launching a 'Take a Bite, Take a Pic,' campaign, and will share some of the Twitter images of people eating the donuts during Shark After Dark. In case you forgot, Shark After Dark is a program in which people who know nothing about sharks, discuss unfounded theories about sharks, because Shark Week is terrible now ... Discuss

 

Whatever your take on Keith Olbermann, he is capable of some of the best, most clear-headed rants in the business. In this blistering, brutal takedown, Olbermann compares the NFL's offensively pathetic two game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for viciously assaulting his wife with its five-game suspension of the Dallas Cowboys's Albert Haynesworth for an on-field stomp. It's sexist, it's sickening and Olbermann handles it well. Take note, NFL ... Discuss

 

What’s the deal with Seinfeld not being on Netflix? Well, just in case you are in need of one more show to spend countless hours repeat binge watching, one of the greatest sitcoms of all-time may soon be finally headed to the streaming outlet. During a Reddit AMA session yesterday, Jerry Seinfeld said this to a fan who asked if the show would ever be available on Netflix: "You are a very smart and progressive person. These conversations are presently taking place." Obviously, “conversations” doesn’t mean that a deal is a sure-thing, but just the prospect of being able to watch all 180 episodes back-to-back is enough to get our hopes up ... Discuss
