The Emmys are on tonight.  I won't waste your time or mine making predictions.

The VMAs were last night.  That's all I have to say about them.

I checked out the pilots for both Selfie and Red Band Society.  I'm definitely in on ed Band Society  and suspect that I'll watch Selfie just because.

I doubt many of you are watching Under The Dome, but it has actually gotten really good this season.  It's available on Amazon Prime if you're a subscriber.

Pivot is repackaging Mixtape by SoulPancake, the web series from Rainn Wilson (The Office), for episodes starting tonight at 8:30p. The SoulPancake channel on YouTube boasts 1.3 million subscribers.

Niecy Nash will recur on season three as a rival of Mindy Kaling’s character on The Mindy Project, reports TVLine. The Mindy Project returns Tuesday, September 16.

Per Deadline, "[a]s Aaron Paul prepares to take a final bow at the Emmys for his acclaimed performance on AMC’s Breaking Bad, the actor is staying in business withBreaking Bad producer Sony Pictures TV. Paul has signed a first-look deal with the studio to develop and produce new series projects. He will shepherd the projects through his newly launched production company, Lucid Road Productions. Starting a company marks the next step for Paul, who recently ventured into producing, executive producing and voicing a character in Netflix’s new animated series BoJack Horseman, which was released today, and co-executive producing the feature Hellion, which premiered at Sundance in January.

"This is Paul’s fifth Emmy nomination for his role as meth-kingpin-apprentice-seeking-moral-redemption Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad for the dark drama’s final episodes. He has won two times and is again considered a top contender for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series."  He had better win.

Another Better Call Saul teaser:

Here is a review of the aforementioned BoJack Horseman.  I will check it out and will report back.

You should be watching Dating Naked if for no other reason than it provides some comic relief. The couple who will be tying the not is Alika and Ashley from this past Thursday's episode.  Here's a recap for you.

Per EW, "[j]ust in time for the school year, ABC will celebrate groovy and educational jams withThe ABC’s of Schoolhouse Rock on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m.

"The Chandra Wilson-hosted special will feature interviews with the creators and writers of the Emmy-winning series. More importantly, it will seek to settle the age-old debate: Which is the best Schoolhouse Rock song of all time? Look, we all know the list is going to include I’m Just a Bill,  Conjunction Junction, and maybe even Interplanet Janet—but I’m telling you, people, if “Sufferin’ till Suffrage” does not make the top five, there is no justice."
