I like this idea (per Deadline ): "TNT has ordered 10 episodes of On The Menu  (working title), billed as TV’s first cooking show ever to give viewers the chance to taste the winning dish after every episode. It’s slated to launch in 2014. Each episode of On the Menu will center on a different American food business – ranging from restaurant chains and stadium concession stands to amusement parks and cruise lines. Passionate home cooks, working in conjunction with professional chefs, will be challenged to create the business’ next signature menu item. The winning dish will immediately go on the menu, giving viewers at home the chance to go try the dish the very next day."

On the heels of On The Menu , here are 26 "truly thrilling" grilled cheese sandwiches.  I think I'd go with #21 or #23.

One more for you and this one is somewhat interesting.  It's a service that can be described as a peer-to-peer lasagna company.   Still some good ideas left out there.

I can't be right every time. TheWrap  reports that "[t]he Season 4 premiere of “The Walking Dead” scored an astonishing 16.1 million total viewers and 10.4 million viewers in the key 18-49 demographic, demolishing its former records and remaining television’s highest-rated series in the demo.

"The AMC zombie series is on track to remain the most watched non-NFL programming this season among 18-49-year-old viewers. Last year, The Walking Dead was the first cable series to be the top non-sports show in the demo. It was second only to NBC’s Sunday Night Football, in demo ratings. In total viewers, the show was also topped last season by CBS’s NCIS.

"The zombies beat NBC’s NFL coverage in the demo Sunday: It had an 8.2 rating to the 7.3 for “SNF.” But football won in total viewers with 19.7 million."  Wow.

Based on the cast so far, I'm all in on Fargo.  "FX has smartly grabbed a bit of Breaking Bad’s afterglow for its limited-series redo of Fargo, tapping  Bob Odenkirk  for a supporting role.

"Glenn Howerton of FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Kate Walsh and Oliver Platt are also joining Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks and Billy Bob Thornton in the adaptation of the Coen brothers’ 1996 pic.

"Production on the 10-episode skein from MGM TV and FX Prods. is set to begin next month in Calgary, for a spring bow."

Watching Vawn and Africa make out, literally made me queasy.   For your sake, I hope the first part of that last sentence meant absolutely nothing to you.

David Arquette talks about Sundance Channel's Dream School.  Show looks interesting.  I was contacted about it months ago, but nothing came to fruition.

TV's highest-paid actors?  Ashton Kutcher still reigns supreme. 

Daman Wayans, Jr. is returning to New Girl.  According to E! , "New Girl producers have devised a clever way to accommodate the return of Damon Wayans, who appeared in the pilot and will return next month, E! News can report exclusively.  Someone is moving out!

"One of New Girl's series regulars—Jess (Zooey Deschanel), Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) or Winston (Lamorne Morris)—will pack up and leave the apartment they all share in an upcoming episode. This departure will clear the way—and an empty room—for Coach's (Wayans) return.

"So who is leaving the loft?

"All we can say is that it's probably not who you think. And the twist is pretty great.

"Also worth noting: The cast member will not be leaving the show. But the character will be out of the loft."

There's an audio book that will give you answers and details about Homeland .  How did Brody get to Caracas, etc?
