  • Ryan Murphy officially announced on "Watch What Happens Live" that Season 7 of "American Horror Story" will be about the 2016 election.
  • Archie Comics has come to an overall deal with Warner Brothers TV which means more of the characters and stories from that world will be coming to the small screen in new shows.
  • Ronald D Moore, Michael Dinner and Bryan Cranston have developed a new sci-fi anthology series for Amazon: “Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams”
  • Edward James Olmos has joined the cast of "Sons of Anarchy" spinoff series, "Mayans MC."
  • After 33 combined seasons of "The Bachelor"/"Bachelorette"/"Bachelor" in Paradise, the new "Bachelorette" will finally be black.
  • "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" is finally surging past Kimmel and Fallon in the ratings -- thanks to the return of his political edge.
  • Nick Cannon has left his hosting duties at "America’s Got Talent" after being punished by NBC for disparaging the network in his Showtime stand-up special. In the special, he said: NBC was deliberately making him tone down his swagger and making him “lose his black card.”
  • E! Is developing a TV series based on the movie "Jawbreaker" -- The movie starred Rose McGowan who was a high school student who tried to hide the murder best frenemy. The new series will apparently update that premise, centering on “a new clique whose world is rocked by an accidental killing at a bachelorette party.”
