Jon Stewart confirms he was approached to host "Meet the Press," but he didn't take NBC's offer seriously "My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” Stewart tells Rolling Stone. "I'm sure part of them was thinking, 'Why don't we just make it a variety show?’” Stewart also says that he thinks Stephen Colbert might be even better when he takes over from Letterman. "Untethered from his character, I think he'll actually have more room and really be able to deliver in a way that's going to surprise people,” says Stewart. E! extends Joel McHale’s “The Soup” deal through 2016 McHale will continue hosting the weekly comedy show, while also coming up reality projects for the network.

There's no indication of a prenup, but there is evidence there are Millions at stake. Alex reportedly makes somewhere between $3-5 Million per season for voicing Peter's wife, Lois. »

Taylor Swift may be one of the last remaining pop artists on the planet to be able to sell a million albums in one week in the United States. The record industry has been hemorrhaging since the early aughts, but Swift has been adaptable, to say the least. She's a hustler, keeping her spirits and sounds current with the room temperature. She started in 2006 with country-core self-titled set, then worked her ass off through the gazillion-selling "Fearless," the Grammys on "Speak Now," the massive crossover of hits like "I Knew You Were Trouble" and novelty "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" off of "Red." The 24-year-old is firmly pop now for "1989," which will breed more certifiable radio staples than just "Shake It Off." "Blank Space" is apparently primed to be the official second single and it is an experiment to say the least (read the track-by-track below). "Welcome to New York" has legs because, »

Not much acting here! Matthew Perry and real-life ex-girlfriend Lauren Graham will play (how convenient!) exes in the upcoming CBS comedy The Odd Couple, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Graham, 47, will guest star as Gaby, the ex-wife of Matthew Perry's Oscar Madison in the reboot based off of Neil Simon's 1965 Broadway play and the subsequent TV series, which ran from 1970 to 1975. The characters have a "deep connection and affection between them" despite getting on each other's nerves. The Gilmore Girls alum and Perry, 45, [...] »
Lauren Graham and Matthew Perry will reunite on his new CBS comedy The Odd Couple, EW has learned. In this modern-day take on Neil Simon’s 1965 Broadway play, Perry stars as the easygoing Oscar Madison opposite Thomas Lennon as uptight neat freak Felix Unger. The Parenthood and Gilmore Girls actress will guest-star as Oscar’s ex-wife Gaby, who lived through a contentious marriage and an even more contentious divorce. But beneath all the bickering, there remains a deep connection and affection between them. Graham and Perry, who previously dated in real life, worked together on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. »

In a bit of meta casting, Graham will be playing Perry’s character Oscar Madison’s ex-wife in the modern retelling of Neil Simon’s 1965 play, reported Entertainment Weekly. As the story goes, Oscar and Gaby go through a rough divorce, but find a deep friendship and affection for one another following the end of their marriage. After the divorce, the laidback Oscar moves in with the ever-uptight Felix Unger, who will be played by Thomas Lennon (Night at the Museum, Reno 911!).
Graham and Perry, who dated after meeting in 2002, have previously worked together on Perry’s other sitcom efforts Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. Graham, who is best known for playing single mom Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, currently stars on Parenthood, »
In Gilmore Girls' first season finale, Lorelai explains to her boyfriend Max (Scott Cohen) what a proper proposal should look like: "There should be a thousand yellow daisies, and candles, and a horse, and I don't know what the horse is doing there unless you're riding it, which seems a little over-the-top..." Max takes Lorelai's words to heart—leading to one of the show's most romantic and visually arresting moments. Here's how it came together. First, the show had to bring Lorelai to the moment when she dreams up the daisies in the first place. Amy Sherman-palladino, Creator-director: One »

“It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes,” Gunn joked. “In really horribly brutal fashion.”
Jokes aside, Gunn confirmed that all five original Guardians will be back, along with unspecified other characters from the first film, and that fans may see the team adding members. Gunn also said the new film will uncover some secrets posed in the first.
“I spent all day on Aug. 1, the day the first movie was released, writing ‘Guardians 2,'” Gunn said. “I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”

A Nielsen software error created a disjointed start to the season for the networks and ratings crunchers, but things started to get back to normal this week.
The measurement service on Thursday afternoon issued the complete primetime ratings data for the third week of the TV season (Oct. 6-12) — more than two days later than its usual Tuesday morning release.
The first 17 nights of the TV season were affected by the software glitch that inaccurately credited some shows (mostly on ABC) with the viewing totals of others. Nielsen acknowledged its error late last week and re-issued program averages for premiere week (Sept. 22-28). A bunch of ABC series were revised downward in the updated nationals, while some shows on the competition (including Fox’s new “Gotham” and CBS veteran “The Big Bang Theory”) were revised upward.
Nielsen says data for every night since last Thursday has been accurate, and complete »

Though the way Gracepoint is set up to tell its murder mystery (through the course of one season instead of a new crime each week) is a refreshingly different turn for network dramas, there's something about it that just doesn't feel like essential viewing. For one, the town of Gracepoint, for all of its supposed charm, is actually more like how Emmett sees it (which is … not good). The portrayal of the town doesn't commit fully to being a sinister place (like say, Twin Peaks), nor is it quirky enough to draw in our interest to it as something unique (like Stars Hollow on Gilmore Girls). That disappointing lack of development is tempered by Beth (thanks to the excellent Virginia Kull), who keeps Gracepoint compelling, even when the show starts to slip. Hit the jump if you're really pretty on the outside, but a wreck on the inside. In most crime series, »

The streaming giant announced Wednesday that all 10 seasons of the NBC sitcom — including the “lost” episodes where Joey and Rachel become a thing — will be available beginning Jan. 1, 2015.
And in honor of this major shift in the cosmos, Netflix has put together a special musical announcement, featuring two familiar voices… and one familiar, platinum-haired barista.
So, Friends, which episodes »
