Nickelodeon has given the unexpected axe to Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande.

The network announced yesterday that Sam & Cat will airs it "series finale" in a few weeks, canceling the popular sitcom after just one season.

It offered little in the way of explanation for the move, simply saying in a statement that "we are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best."

That cast is fronted by a pair of young, controversial stars.

FX aired what many consider to be its answer to The Walking Dead last night.

The Strain, a series based on the books of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan and written by those same authors, centers on a type of vampire that looks nothing like Robert Pattinson.

Instead, this type of vampirism wiggles its way into its host and infects him/her from the inside.

We started the hour with Regis Air flight 753 approaching JFK, with the flight landing in New York and only four passengers remaining alive.

True Detective was a surprise runaway hit for HBO, and the 2014 Emmy nominations indicate that the show is just as popular with the Academy as it was with viewers.

Naturally, there's a lot of pressure on showrunner Nic Pizzolatto to deliver again in season 2, and the show's one-and-done anthology format means that acclaimed stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson won't be returning for a second go-round.

So who will fill the (probably gritty, psychologically complex) voice in the show's second season?

Well, rumors that Jessica Chastain will join True Detective were shot down months ago, and no new casting information was leaked until today.

According to unconfirmed reports, it now looks as though Irish actor Colin Farrell will continue the show's tradition of transplanting big screen stars to the world of premium cable.

Forgive the obvious pun, but Dating Naked is coming to VH1.

The series (not to be confused with Naked and Afraid, though that will describe most contestants) will feature a man and a woman as they each date two different, birthday suit-wearing suitors.

At the end of the installment, each will decide whether or not to move forward with their matches.

Look for naked dining, naked swimming, naked horseback riding and even naked elimination ceremonies.

Sound too good to be true? Remember what Jerry Seinfeld says, fellas: there's good naked and there's bad naked.

Watch the first Dating Naked trailer now:

Dating Naked premieres on Thursday, July 17.

She's somehow pregnant.

The opening episode didn’t reveal much about Molly’s mission, except that we did learn communication went down for about 13 hours at one point.

Another day, another View casting rumor.

With Rosie O'Donnell almost definitely on board for a second stint as co-host, attention has now turned to who will be surrounding her and Whoopi Goldberg on ABC's table.

Might it be Andi Dorfman, an ABC staple? Sarah Palin, who has seemingly expressed some interest? Or perhaps... Meghan McCain?

Insiders tell E! News that John McCain's outspoken daughter is being considered for the gig, as Meghan has made numerous appearance on The View.

She also HATES Bristol Palin, so teaming her up wit Sarah Palin would bring in instant ratings. Do it, The View!

On A&E's Duck Dynasty Season 6 Episode 5, the gang seriously considered revamping the Duck Commander logo, crazy as that might sound to fans.

The motto "if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it," applies to many things in life, and the Robertson family certainly embraces it with its emphasis on family and tradition.

Yet CEO Willie put it in everybody's heads that he wants to hire someone to design a snazzy new Duck Commander symbol to reinvigorate the brand.

The flying duck has been the main image of the Robertson’s family business since 1972, when the Duck Commander himself, Phil Robertson, founded it.

Ultimately, despite Jase Robertson and the guys getting a little carried away in response to the idea, the logo change is scuttled and everyone is happy.
