John Oliver thinks it would be “fantastic” if Community creator Dan Harmon returns to oversee the sitcom’s fifth season. On May 25, Harmon tweeted “Yes yes yes! I’m back I’m back I’m back. You can thank @joelmchale” in response to a fan requesting a “straight answer” as to his much rumored return. Oliver, who played recurring character Dr. Ian Duncan during Harmon’s original tenure at the show, said he hadn’t heard anything on the Community grapevine about the showrunner returning “but that would be fantastic.”

And baby makes … a whole new season of antics for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which returns for its eighth (!!!) season on June 2.
E! is obviously hoping any fresh intrigue over Kim’s life change will help launch a new series at 10 p.m. called The Wanted Life, which follows the U.K. band The Wanted as they live together in the Hollywood Hills and “take on all that LA has to offer.”
Here are sneak peeks of both shows: READ FULL STORY

'The Real Housewives of NYC': Season 6 salary dispute nearly over, conversations with cast moving toward deal
It seems the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York City are nearly back in business with cable network Bravo after a salary dispute that threatened to shut down the show as it heads into its sixth season.
Bravo won’t confirm that the deals are done, but sources told EW that the six-member cast — Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, LuAnn de Lesseps, Heather Thomson, Sonja Morgan, and Aviva Drescher — will likely sign a deal soon and “conversations are moving in that direction.” Us Weekly is reporting the women have “agreed to return for a sixth season,” while Deadline is reporting that they have signed their contracts.
Few details are available yet, but it’s likely the housewives received pay increases. Early reports from the negotiations hinted that Bravo would possibly more forward on the show without some — or all — of the castmembers, if a deal could not be worked out. The cast was set to begin production on the show’s sixth season last week, but they didn’t show up as a negotiation tactic.

CeeLo Green — last seen donning some crazy clothes and charming the ladies on The Voice in seasons one and two — will launch his own reality show on TBS.
The cable net ordered six episodes of The CeeLo Life, which will follow the performer as he produces, records and performs. It will also focus on his creative partnership with his longtime best friends – Big Gipp, Khujoand T-Mo – as they prepare to bring their hip-hop group Goodie Mob back to the world stage.
The unscripted show will premiere in 2014.
It’s likely NBC would work around CeeLo’s busy schedule, should he decide to return to The Voice next season.
“I’ve been on Conan O’Brien like 47 times, and you don’t know who I am, right?” asks Marc Maron in the premiere episode of Maron, a new IFC comedy that’s based on his real life as a comedian and podcast host. He’s talking to his veterinarian, which is kind of funny: What kind of self-important blowhard cares if his veterinarian knows who he is? But really, he’s talking to you and me and anyone else who might’ve caught his show while flipping through the channels. Because nothing is more important to Maron than making sure that everyone knows who he is.
Tom Chadwick is an affable British-Irish chap stuck in a bad patch. He’s reeling from a breakup, and he’s just been made redundant at his job. His longtime best friend keeps setting him up on disastrous dates with dim-witted women. Tom needs to Move Along, Please!, to borrow the title from his father’s favorite sitcom. Into Tom’s stultifying life drops a box of heirlooms bequeathed by a dead great-aunt. He begins investigating the knotty roots of his screwy family history, which takes this hangdog Homer on an absurdly funny odyssey into oddball quarters and pastimes (pantomime horse racing, anyone?). Tom, a product of his reality TV/self-documenting generation, allows a film crew to record his journey of discovery. Look, everybody! I’m interesting!
TNT is turning to action dude Michael Bay (Transformers) to produce 10 episodes of The Last Ship, a new drama that will star Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy) that’s based on William Brinkley’s novel of the same name.
The series, which will premiere in 2014, opens with a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoids falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now the crew and its captain must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.
McSteamy, aka Dane, will play Captain Tom Chandler, a career Navy man who is respected and loved by the men and women under his command. The Last Ship also stars Rhona Mitra (Strike Back) as Rachel Scott, a paleomicrobiologist assigned to the Nathan James to investigate the cause of billions of deaths worldwide. Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) is Slattery, the ship’s second-in-command who worries deeply about his family and occasionally clashes with Dane’s Captain Chandler over the best course of action. And Tracy Middendorf (Boardwalk Empire, Mission: Impossible III) plays Darien Chandler, the captain’s wife. READ FULL STORY
