  • NBC acquired a couple new pilots today.  First is "100 Questions for Charlotte Payne", a comedy about a young woman living and dating in NYC (where have I heard that before?) and second is "Community" which has been compared to "Stripes (the 80s flick where Bill Murray joins the Army as a gag) but set in a community college.
  • MTV just gave Snoop Dogg is own weekly variety show called "Dogg After Dark".  Each episode will have interviews, sketch comedy and musical guests.  The new series is set to premiere on February 17th at 9pm eastern.  source
  • Looks like more drama behind the scenes at "Grey's Anatomy".  Actor James Picken Jr. (Dr. Richard Webber on 'Grey's) says Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are definitely done with the show.  Apparently Katherine is ready to move to the big screen and T.R. just wants a place where he can get some more camera time.  Either way,  they'll finish out the season.  Still a contract to uphold after all. source
