If you read this blog, you know how much I love the show Workaholics on Comedy Central.  Adam Devine is getting his own show.  According to the report, Comedy Central has yet to officially announce Adam DeVine's House Party, but they've begun advertising live tapings via Facebook that'll be taking place in LA over the next two weeks, beginning today. The show will be a mix of stand-up and narrative sketches hosted from a house party in the backyard of DeVine's mansion.

Reminder to check out my friend's show Ready For Love tonight on NBC at 9:00 PM.  After you watch Splash, switch on over. . . . 

I've touted this podcast before, but do yourself a favor and listen to Jeff Garlin interview Zack Galifianakis here.  

I see that there are people out there recapping Hell's Kitchen.  Is that for real?  Here's the recap, Chef Ramsay gives the chefs a challenge, they suck at it but one team wins and gets a random day of relaxation.  Both teams suck during dinner service, Chef Ramsay yells a lot, the chefs yell at each other and one chef goes home.  Next.

Here's an interesting interview with Michael J. Fox who will officially be returning to primetime television in the fall.  He'll be a new show on NBC that is loosely based on his own life and his battles with Parkinson's disease.

There seems to be a lot of hullabaloo about FOX possibly becoming a pay channel.  Quick background, "last week, that business was shaken after a federal appeals court issued a preliminary ruling siding with Aereo, which contends that it doesn't have to pay those fees because it relies on thousands of tiny antennas.

News Corp. Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey said that not being paid by Aereo jeopardizes the economics of broadcast TV, which relies on both retransmission fees and advertising."

Here is CBS' quasi-response if you're interested in following along.
