Ready for the rest of today’s TV dish? Well…

• This can’t be good: CBS has let go Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green, the creators of freshman cop-drama, Blue Bloods, per Deadline. The network and studio reportedly want to make Bloods “more procedural,” which is ironic because the series’ first showrunner Ken Sanzel exited nearly nine months ago amid reports that star Tom Selleck felt that scripts were becoming too procedural.

• After nearly a month of exit rumors, Katie Couric is expected to finally confirm her CBS Evening News departure following her coverage of this week’s royal wedding, says The New York Times. Current 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley will reportedly succeed her.

• Showtime has replaced all but one of the original Real L Word ladies for its second season, EW.com reports. The docu-series (launching Sunday, June 5) welcomes back Hollywood special effects badgirl Whitney, who will be joined by six new Los Angeles-based lesbians.

Survivor fan fave Robert “Boston Rob” Mariano is set to co-host Around the World in 80 Ways, a 10-part reality series on the History Channel, confirms EW.com.
