For residents in many parts of the country, winter isn't simply coming. It's already here.

Therefore, what a perfect time for HBO to unveil the very first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5.

Released on Twitter, the brief footage focuses on Arya and is mostly a promotional tool that asks fans to “follow the three-eyed raven.”

The video calls attention ThreeEyedRaven.com, a site where Game of Thrones viewers can sign up to receive frequent updated from the drama's iconic animals.

Game of Thrones Season 5 won't premiere until the spring of 2015, but here is what we know about new episodes to come:

Allegations that Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted a number of women over the course of several decades resurfaced in recent weeks after comedian Hannibal Burress referenced the charges during a stand-up performance in San Francisco.

On Monday, a woman named Joan Tarshis accused Cosby of rape, claiming that the comedy legend sedated her and forced her to have oral sex with him in 1969.

Yesterday, model and former reality star Janice Dickinson made similar allegations, thus becoming the fifteenth woman to accuse Cosby of criminal abuse.

Prior to this latest scandal, Cosby was in the midst of a career comeback, with a Netflix special, stand-up tour, and NBC sitcom planned for the coming year.

While no venues on the tour have canceled Cosby's appearances, Netflix has opted not to proceed with the planned special, and NBC announced today that its terminated its contract with the 77-year-old comic.

The Ice Queen is about to melt away from Once Upon a Time Season 4.

It's been known since her debut that Elizabeth Mitchell would not stick around on this ABC drama past the calendar year, but producers have only just now confirmed who will take her place as the lead Once Upon a Time villain.

FIRST, Kristin Bauer van Straten will reprise her role as Maleficent, the Mistress of All Evil from Sleeping Beauty.

SECOND, Victoria Smurfit will portray Cruella de Vil, though we assume no real dalmatians will be harmed in the process of her role.

THIRD, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Merrin Dungey - best known for her role as Francie Calfo on Alias - will come on board as The Little Mermaid’s Ursula.

Today Show Shake-Up Alert! Today Show Shake-Up Alert!

Maybe.

About a week after rumors first surfaced that Natalie Morales was feuding with Tamron Hall and was unhappy with her role on the NBC morning program, insiders tell Us Weekly that both Morales and Willie Geist have been fired from Today.

Morales is already in negotiations with ABC, the tabloid adds, while Geist has lined up a gig at CBS.

HOWEVER, in a memo obtained by Us Weekly, NBC News' Deborah Turness writes that General Manager Jamie Horowitz was simply "not the right fit” and has also been let go from his job, which he only held for two months.

Horowitz was allegedly the executive in favor of removing Morales and Geist from their posts and, with him now gone (for certain), it remains unclear whether Today will go through with his proposed anchor change.

NeNe Leakes and company are back on Bravo, and if the ratings for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 1 are any indication, all the off-season drama has only helped to make the show more popular than ever.

The episode pulled in an estimated 3.8 million viewers, making it Bravo's most-watched season premiere ever.

The news isn't all that surprising, considering the turbulent lives of the ladies and their hot-headed beaus provided several months' worth of free advertising.

Highlights included Apollo Nida going to prison for a looooong time, and loose cannon Porsha Williams being demoted from series regular to "friend of the Housewives."

With all of the recent controversy surrounding Lena Dunham's comments about her sister, it's easy to forget that she's still the star, head writer and executive producer of a moderately popular HBO series.

But she is, and the show that's almost as divisive as its showrunner is soon to return for a new season of white people struggling to get by in spite of their dwindling trust funds.

Yes, the first trailer for season 4 of Girls hit YouTube today, and dare we say, it actually looks...funny?

Despite the show relocating much of its main action to Iowa (where Hannah's been accepted to the country's most prestigious creative writing MFA program), it ironically looks like Girls is returning to its roots.

She's not just the Duchess' little sister anymore! Pippa Middleton has reportedly inked a deal to be an on-air correspondent with NBC's Today Show.

It's an odd choice, considering Pippa was fired from her previous job as a newspaper columnist.

She's also notoriously press-shy.

Pippa avoided American interviews until June of 2014 when she finally sat down...with Matt Lauer of the Today show.

So yes, it's looking as though NBC is more infatuated with Pippa's famous name and royal connections than they are with Pippa herself, but hey - a job's a job!

Clay Aiken has come in second once again.

The artist-turned-politician, who finished second to Ruben Studdard on American Idol, lost his North Carolina Congressional race last night.

He was defeated by incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers, who claimed 56 percent of the district's vote and who was first elected in 2010 to the same office.

If he had pulled off the upset, Aiken would have become the first openly gay congressman elected from the South.

It was a tough campaign overall for the Democrat, who distanced himself as often as possible from President Obama and whose primary challenger (Keith Crisco) actually died in May.

Then, last night, Aiken’s bus broke down after leaving a polling station. The accident took place after he voted and police had to tow the vehicle off the road.
