MTV delivered a double dose of major Awkward news today.

First, the good: this comedic drama has been picked up for a fifth season.

Now, the bad: said fifth season will mark the end of Awkward's successful run.

Awkward debuted in July 2011 to 1.72 million viewers. The series then picked up some momentum, growing into one of MTV’s signature programs, although it never rose above 2.3 million overall viewers per week.

For a few terrifying days over the summer, it looked as though the highly-anticipated Lena Headey nude scene might be cut from the fifth season of Game of Thrones.

"Why?!" the people shouted. "Lena Dunham is naked on HBO all the time and no one asked for that!"

GoT's King's Landing storylines film in Dubrovnik, Croatia a city where local church authorities apparently rule the land with a Joffrey-like contempt for all things awesome.

The Dubrovnikians nearly put the kibosh on Cersei's naked stroll through town for religious reasons, which would've forced us all to go back and watch 300 again if we wanted to see Lena Headey's boobs.

Fortunately, freedom and happiness prevailed, and producers were somehow able to convince the citizens of Dubrovnik to let the scene happen in a different part of town.

Twin Peaks is, shockingly, returning to the small screen.

The iconic, short-lived drama (which aired on ABC in 1990 and 1991 and which focused on a murder in a mysterious, fictional Washington town) will be revived by Showtime in 2016.

Co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost confirmed the news via joint statement today, while both will write all nine new episodes and Lynch will direct every episode.

"The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you," Lynch and Frost said. "It is not a remake. The story continues. The seeds of where we go were planted where we've been."

Even though Lindsay Lohan forgot her lines and got laughed at during her London stage debut, she showed up on time and didn't fall off the stage in a drunken stupor, so she's already counting step one of her comeback campaign as a success.

And of course, you can't have a Hollywood underdog story with a happy ending unless Oprah is somehow involved.

Lindsay Lohan and Oprah

You may have forgotten or blocked it out of your memory, but Lindsay had a reality show on Oprah's OWN network earlier this year.

It was widely believed to have been canceled, and there were countless tabloid stories about Lindsay pissing Oprah off, as she's wont to do (showing up late, getting wasted at inopportune times, being Lindsay Lohan).

Even so, as evidenced by the photo above, Lady O stopped by the West End to check out Lindsay's play and according to LiLo's latest interview, the dynamic duo of Lohan and Winfrey is ready to start saving the world once again:

(Jennifer) Love (Hewitt) was in the air on Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 1.

The former Ghost Whisperer and The Client List star made her debut on this CBS drama as Kate Callahan, a new member of the BAU team with extensive undercover experience.

We fist met the character as she laughed in the face of a child porn purveyor after he got hauled away in handcuffs.

We then saw her in the elevator with Reid and then in an interview with Hotch and then - Bam! - she had the job, taking the spot vacated by Blake when Jeanne Tripplehorn exited the series in May.

Hewitt was thrust right into a stomach-turning case on the Criminal Minds premiere, as the unit went after an UnSub who removed his victims’ arms, legs and head and then proceeded to leave the torso somewhere else entirely.

At the outset of Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Episode 2, Ichabod has a nightmare that Henry is attempting to sanctify the bond between Katrina and Abraham.

Meanwhile, Abbie is late to her first meeting with the Sheriff Reyes, a new authority figure who knew Abbie's mom because she referred to a few of the calls when Abbie was just a child.

Reyes does believe Sleepy Hollow has a problem, but not of the supernatural variety. She thinks citizens are scared and therefore being driven to do insane things.

When it comes to Ichabod, Abbie is worried that time spent seeking Katrina is time NOT spent on tracking major threats such as Moloch. But Ichabod assures his leftenant that he's trying to free Katrina for more than just personal reasons:

She's also a powerful witch who can help tip the scales in the favor of the good.

Judging by the colossal ratings for Once Upon a Time's season premiere last night, audiences are being sucked into the world of Disney's Frozen once again.

Ever since it was announced back in spring that the show would feature storylines based on the animated musical smash, fan interest in OUAT has been at an all-time high.

The casting of Georgiana Haig as Queen Elsa in June generated controversy. (Most fans approved, but some had been pushing for Elsa lookalike and Internet celeb Anna Faith Carlson).

But we doubt producers' decision to cast Tyler Jacob Moore's as Hans will provoke will be the subject of much debate.

Yes, People magazine provided us with our first look at Moore as Hans, and this dude certainly has the right look.

The Simpsons producers promised a major death to kick off Season 26 of this iconic animated sitcom and they delivered on Sunday night, as (SPOILER ALERT!) we said farewell to Krusty's father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofski.

Some would say they delivered, that is.

Others on Twitter, such as @joshgnosis, would say "much like the last few seasons," this revelation was "promising but ultimately disappointing."

You can watch The Simpsons online (click Play on the video above) and you can review The Simpsons quotes from the installment to formulate your own thoughts on the controversial premiere, but here's a look at what many other viewers are saying about it.

It was made very clear on Sunday evening:

Television fans chose not to watch TV online, especially not on ABC or Fox.

The Once Upon a Time Season 4 premiere, which brought the world of Frozen into the world of Storybrooke, saw a 31 percent increase in viewership compared to the Season 3 opener:

Overall, 9.4 million households tuned in, while the episode earned a strong 3.4 rating among 18-49-year olds.

Elsewhere, the Family Guy-Simpsons crossover shattered records for this animated hit, as 8.4 million people tuned in to the Season 13 premiere. That's a 73 percent uptick from last September's opener.
