WEtv has green-lit the docu-series The Lylas, which follows Grammy winner Bruno Mars' four sisters as they embark on their musical careers. The show centers on Tiara, Tahiti and Presley, who move from their home in Hawaii to join big sister Jaime in Los Angeles and work to record their first album together. The show will air Friday nights beginning in the fall and consist of eight hour long episodes.  Zzzzzzzzzzz.

More new shows from SyFy, including Unbreakable, a competition based on an extreme endurance race held annually in Vermont; The Jim Henson Creature Shop, in which aspiring puppeteers and even Muppeteers can win an apprenticeship with the fabled maker of Kermit the Frog; Meat Loaf Rocks the Paranormal, starring the musician, his two daughters and his son-in-law, Scott Ian of Anthrax, traveling to America’s most famous haunted locales; and Dead Famous, that sets out to answer questions about celebrities who died young by collecting personal items and holding a séance.  Double zzzzzzzzzz.

Brad Womack and AshLee Frazier are now a couple?  Another Bachelor lovefest that should end badly within the next 180 days.

I think I'd be all in on a Breaking Bad spinoff.  Wait, who am I kidding?  Of course I'd be all in.  Here's was Bob Odenkirk has to say about it.  He told Vulture that he and series boss Vince Gilligan have even discussed how it might work. “Oh yeah, we've talked about it,” he said cryptically a few days ago, just after finishing filming his final scene. “Vince is still really busy with the show so we haven’t talked very in-depth about it, but he clearly thinks it’s a possibility. And I've certainly told him that if there was some way to see more of Saul then I would be happy to do it. It would be fun.”  Fingers crossed.

I am all in on Marc Maron's new show premiering on May 3 on IFC.  Here's the trailer in the event you're still on the fence.

Here's the latest from the world of the future of late night television: "Last Call With Carson Daly has been renewed for a thirteenth season. "We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carson who has broken the mold, creating  his own unique late-night show format withLast Call," NBC said in a statement. "The show has become a platform for emerging artists — and Carson’s engaging interview style has made it the place for insightful conversations with an eclectic group of new stars as well as established icons and news makers." Alec Baldwin on Tuesday was rumored to be in the mix to join NBC's late-night programming, potentially taking over Daly's time slot. Now E! reports Baldwin "was mentioned as a possibility, but there were never any negotiations," and that the idea is now off the table."
