Being Mary Jane scores big for BET, BB15 firings, Veronica Mars/Vinnie Van Lowe set pic and more


Gabrielle Union‘s Being Mary Jane pilot scored huge for BET last nigh. The series, which officially premieres in 2014, is a drama about a successful anchorwoman who’s struggling with love, contemplating motherhood and dealing with her family.

Fred Armisen has confirmed his Saturday Night Live exit. Jason Sudeikis on the other hand, isn’t spilling whether or not he’ll be back next season.

— While CBS didn’t bother showing the vile behaviour of racist house guests in last night’s episode, Aaryn has been dropped by her modeling agency while GinaMarie has also lost her job.

— Meanwhile, CBS sent out a statement to Buzzfeed about the racist, homophobic and sexist comments:

“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in person commentary by a Houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”

Sure, CBS…why not actually air the offensive stuff so that non-Internet viewers can see just how ugly some of these contestants are?

— The success of ABC Family’s Twisted and The Fosters may signal the end of Amy Sherman-Palladino‘s Bunheads.

— Edgar from 24 (Louis Lombardi) is joining Frank Darabont‘s new mobster drama.

— In case any other report didn’t send the message, Christian Bale has ruled out returning as Batman in the Justice League movie.

Prince Charles and his wife visited the set of Doctor Who.

Entertainment Weekly got their hands on this Veronica Mars movie production still of Kristen Bell and Ken Marino‘s Vinnie Van Lowe.
