This will be the final season for Two And A Half Men.  Finally.  Although if Charlie Sheen does in fact come back for an episode, it would likely rate through the roof.  And yes, it's a possibility.

Here's more chatter about Fox's Mulaney "resembling Seinfeld."  Again, please stop with this already.

A Q&A with Mad Men's Ben Feldman.  And another, as if one wasn't enough.

A funny story from The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, who thought he was auditioning for Chuck Woolery, not Chuck Lorre:

The Goldbergs wrapped up its freshman season last night with another terrific episode.  I applaud ABC for recognizing this show is a hit and for bringing it back for another season.

Here's a link to three trailers for upcoming TBS shows (Angie TribecaBuzzy'sYour Family Or Mine?)  Not sure there's a mega hit amongst them, but I'm a sucker for most TBS comedies, if not all.

Evidently people are excited about the below "first look" at the upcoming season of The Walking Dead?

Sausage, Scott and Matti advanced to the finals of Ink Master making this by far the most competitive and compelling finale to date.  Their final tattoo is a 35-hour back piece.  The season wraps up next Tuesday on Spike.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, "SundanceTV is adding another scripted drama to its growing roster. 

"The cable network announced Wednesday that it is teaming with Oscar winner Danny Boyle to co-produce drama seriesBabylon with U.K. broadcaster Channel 4.

"Described as a workplace satire set inside a modern police force, Brit Marling (Another Earth) and James Nesbitt (The Hobbit) star in the drama from writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong (Peep Show).

"Babylon centers on an earnest executive who attempts to modernize the culture only to discover her certainties shattered and herself undermined in the murky realpolitik of contemporary policing."

"Sundance TV has been pushing further into original scripted dramas. The cable network's current roster includes the second season of Rectify and the recently renewed The Red Road as well as acquisition The Returned, upcoming mini The Honourable Woman and recently announced One Child."

The trailer for the upcoming Fox show Utopia was released and you can check it out below:

"HBO Sports and Mandalay Sports Media are developing a documentary about basketball legend Kareem Abdul-JabbarVariety has learned.

Directed by Ron Yassen and executive produced by Mike Tollin (Hank Aaron: Chasing The Dream), the project will follow the former L.A. Laker from his long run in the NBA and through his many controversial and landmark moments over the past 50 years.

"Tollin, co-chairman of Mandalay Sports Media, says the film will 'reveal the complexity and genius of Kareem both on and off the court. By his own admission, Abdul-Jabbar has had a complicated and occasionally hostile relationship with the media. This is a unique opportunity to tell all sides of his story.'

"Production and principal photography began this week in Los Angeles.

"The film is scheduled to debut in early 2015 on HBO."

If Kareem wasn't such an a-hole, MAYBE people would actually give a crap about a project like this.
