• Law & Order: SVU has cast Mike Tyson and Ed Asner in an upcoming episode, per Deadline. The infamous boxer will play a murderer on death row, while Mary Tyler Moore‘s former boss visits as someone involved in his investigation.

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night drew its best numbers yet since moving to 11:35 pm: a total of 3.17 million viewers, with 1.24 mil landing in the 18-49 sweet spot (besting both Jay Leno and David Letterman in the demo).

Meredith Vieira is stepping down as host of Who Wants to be a Millionaire after 11 seasons, Reuters confirms. She’ll remain on the air through May, with a new host stepping in this fall.

TBS has given the green light to two new unscripted series: Deal With It, a hidden-camera prank show from exec producer Howie Mandel; and Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host, a comedic game show from producer Mark Burnett.

• CBS has given a pilot order to a new single-camera comedy from Jim Gaffigan (My Boys). The potential series would star the comedian as a happily married (and harried) New York father of five — just as he is in real life.

    I can’t wait anymore for GoT to come back. Bring it back now. Today. Right now. Thank you.

    • Russ says:

      I want it too but I’m already nervous about the red wedding.

      • MJ says:

        Me too, I don’t think I’m ready to watch that. Just listening to The rains of Castemere gives me the chills.

      • Jay2013 says:

        Got a feeling the Red Wedding will be in Season 4, could be wrong

        • Ryan says:

          Not specific, but SPOILERS just in case someone wants to read into this:

          Knowing how they did the pilot, I believe the red wedding and the subsequent follow up of what happens to members of said wedding will close out season three.

          • Chuck Finley (AJ) says:

            Agreed. Although the red wedding is past the middle of the third book I think it will be the season finale of season 3. They have already said book 3 will be two seasons. There isn’t a lot of major stuff leading up to that event, but so much of what happens after will need an entire season of it’s own.

    I wonder why the casting Agents got Tyson to come onto SVU, considering he raped someone.. It’s odd

  3. Eric says:

    Wait, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is still on the air?!
    I am pretty excited for the Jim Gaffigan sitcom. Single-camera on CBS? Wow! Color me impressed.

  4. Miss says:

    I can’t wait to see the feminists wank over Mike Tyson on SVU.

  5. Jess says:

    gosh this promo is confusing. hopefully non-book readers wouldn’t think the setting’s actually coming to “our world.” ugh… BUT I absolutely adore the rains of castamere song! so haunting!!!
