Happy Flag Day. 

Here are 25 pretty useless facts about a very vanilla Bachelorette .  For example, "I wear sunscreen daily."  Or "[p]enguins are my favorite animal."  Or this gem, "[f]ave number: four."  It's shocking the ratings aren't higher this season!

Jason Alexander will join his fellow Seinfeld star Michael Richards on a new TV Land comedy in the works that will star Kirstie Alley as a Broadway actress.  Alexander will guest star as Alley’s agent in Kirstie, a new sitcom that will debut this fall. Richards plays Alley’s eccentric driver.

Speaking of Seinfeld , Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee  season 2 premiered yesterday.  Episode 1 featured Sarah Silverman and you can watch it in its entirety here.

According to Entertainment Weekly, "NBC is set to announce the contestant teams for its upcoming reality competition Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls.

The final season of Intervention  premiered this week.  I've been a fan of the show since day 1 and will be sad to see it go.  In the meantime, Vulture  put it's list of the 5 most unforgettable episodes of the series.  It goes without saying that Allison, who was abused spray duster as an inhalant, topped the list.

The New York Times ran a pretty fascinating piece about some of what goes on after the credits roll on Shark Tank .  The article hones in on Verbalize.it and is definitely worth the read presuming you watch the show.
