Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Susan Sarandon has exited Epix’s upcoming comedy Graves due to artistic differences, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the project — which stars Nick Nolte as a former POTUS who tries to reverse his administration’s mistakes two decades after leaving office — Sarandon was poised to play Nolte’s wife, Margaret Graves, who begins to pursue her own political aspirations during her husband’s Don Quixote-like journey.

* VH1 has renewed Basketball Wives: LA for a fifth season, ahead of its Season 4 finale on Oct. 4.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that The Daily Show is still worth watching. I’ve watched Noah on TDS the few times he was on and didn’t find him funny. I’ve been following his interviews promoting the show, and still don’t find him funny. He’s young and good looking, which Comedy Central probably thought was important for younger viewers. But, unless Noah can bring it like Jon Stewart did, his good looks won’t matter. I’ll still be watching to see Jessica Williams and the rest of the correspondents, and hope that Noah will be worthy of being the anchor.

    They cancel Hindsight but renew Baketball Wives. Lame!

    Man, an interview with Chris Christie will can be a sink or swim moment. While not really the contender he was initially predicted to be a few years back he could still potentially eat a weak interviewer alive.

    Why did Susan Sarandon really exit Graves?
