Today's news you might've missed:
The Will Ferrell-Nicole Kidman film version may have been a flop, but CBS wants to try a small screen remake of “Bewitched.”
The network has ordered a script from Sony Pictures Television for a potential TV remake of the hit ‘60s show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The producers behind the 2005 movie – spouses Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher - are lined up to produce the series.
Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York (and later Dick Sargent) starred in the original series, which ran from 1964 to 1972. The story, of course, followed a suburban witch (Montgomery) married to an advertising executive (York) who couldn't help using magic in her everyday life.
Who should play Samantha and Darrin this time around?
Fans of the 1987 film aren’t happy about the upcoming remake, but the movie’s original star is perfectly content with the idea of an update.
Jennifer Grey, who played Baby, the teenage girl falling in love at a Catskills camp, tweeted her response Tuesday: "I love @Kennyortega and trust that he will do something special #DirtyDancingRemake."
Grey has a good reason to have faith in Ortega: He was the choreographer on the original film.

Murphy described Sasha as a "fighter."

“TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of 'Lopez Tonight,'" the network said in a statement. "Thursday will be the final episode of the show. We are proud to have partnered with George Lopez, who is an immensely talented comedian and entertainer. TBS has valued its partnership with George and appreciates all of his work on behalf of the network, both on and off the air."
In November of 2010, "Lopez Tonight" was pushed back to midnight to accommodate Conan O'Brien's "Conan," a move Lopez was pleased with. FULL POST
