Short and sweet today. 

The Rock's new show premieres tonight on TNT.  It doesn't look all that interesting. 

FYI has two reality show premieres set for Tuesday, January 13. First is the much anticipated Married at First Sight: The First Year, following the two out of three couples still wed to the strangers they married, and Mikie Saves the Date, focused on event planner Mikie Russo. 

Colbert will not take over Dave Letterman's seat until next fall.  

Singer Rick Springfield has joined the cast of True Detective.

Per TheWrap, "Two And A Half Men star Ashton Kutcher dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday where he was giddily coy about the series finale of CBS's long-running Two and a Half Men.  He revealed that though they hadn't shot it yet, he knew how the show was going to end.

“'I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about it,' he said. 'I'm scared. Yeah, I'm a little terrified.'

"DeGeneres wasn't scared at all, asking pointedly if Charlie Sheen was coming back. Kutcher's mouth hung open and his arms flailed about, but no words came out for a few moments. Finally, he said, 'If you're working on the Warner Bros. lot, if there's sirens, come save me.'

“'So Charlie comes back,' DeGeneres concluded. Kutcher vehemently denied saying anything, but he gave a sheepish grin and giggle, indicating he may well have said everything."

"George Clooney, who shot to stardom in the 1990s, is headed back to the decade for a new TV project. The actor/producer/director, whose Smokehouse Pictures production company signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures Television last summer, has teamed up with Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller and Rescue Me creator Peter Tolan for a one-hour comedic drama that will explore the movie business of the early 1990s, Vulture has learned. Details of the project are scarce right now, but people familiar with the project call it a dark comedy looking at the movie business through the eyes of the studio executives running it. 

Though it’s likely the characters in the show will be fictional, Clooney’s experiences in the business at the time seem like a logical source of inspiration for Tolan, who will write the script and executive produce with Clooney and Smokehouse partner Grant Heslov. Tolan also has plenty of experience chronicling the craziness of Hollywood, having served as head writer (with Garry Shandling) on HBO’s iconic The Larry Sanders Show. Miller, whose directorial credits also include Moneyball and Capote, is set to direct the pilot. Not surprisingly, given the auspices involved, the project has drawn strong interest from network execs who’ve heard the pitch from Clooney and Tolan this week: Two people familiar with the potential series tell Vulture the only question now is where it will land and what sort of financial commitment it will generate. Sony has had meetings with basic and premium cable networks, as well as at least one streaming service. If and when the project goes to series, it won’t be the first time Clooney has put his name on a TV show about Hollywood: He, Heslov, and Stephen Soderbergh produced 2005’s Unscripted for HBO."
