— 29% of TV shows get a ratings boost thanks to Twitter.

Dollhouse and Battlestar Galactica alum Tahmoh Penikett will guest star on a multi-episode arc of Supernatural.

Sam Rockwell will be added to the Poltergeist remake. He was amazing in The Way, Way Back, which I saw this past weekend. Come to think of it, he’s done some amazing movies (Moon!).

Sesame Street spoofed Sons of Anarchy with “Sons of Poetry.”

Community’s Donald Glover has signed a deal with FX to star, write and produce a half-house comedy pilot that focuses on Atlanta’s music scene.
