I'm behind on my viewing and my queue is loaded up with shows (e.g., Hell's Kitchen, Justified, Preachers Daughters, etc) so I'll hit you with some news and notes from around way:

Here's a recap of last night's premiere of Splash.  I was at the taping of episode 3 last night and I implore to stick with this show as last night was drama filled and entertaining.  Last night's premiere did a 2.6 (A18-49) which is a pretty good number and one that I think will only grow higher as the weeks move on.

HBO has canceled Enlightened after two seasons.  I was never into the show but for those of you who were, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I don't talk about Seinfeld enough on this blog, but it remains by all-time favorite program.  Here's a great list of 10 things that will forever conjure up Seinfeld.

Cedric The Entertainer has been named the new host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Two questions: 1) this show is still on the air??? and 2) what on Earth happened to It's Worth What?

Here's an interesting article with a theory about why networks have not been able to find true success in the reality space.

Royal Pains is back in production.  That show remains one of my guilty pleasure watches during the summer.  Speaking of which, Franklin & Bash should be coming back this summer as well.  We don't have a premiere date to the best of my knowledge, but the news of Breckin Meyer signing a development deal with Sony Pictures should not give you pause as Sony is involved with F&B.  No need to worry.

Check out the trailer for Christopher Guest's new HBO series Family Tree, which premieres in May.

A Party Down movie is still a possibility as Rob Thomas confirms that a script is in the works.  Keep your fingers crossed.
