While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • If you know where to look, you can have Drake's "Take Care" ahead of its actual release. The artist tweeted that he didn't know if the album had leaked or not, but did add to those who may have it, "Listen, enjoy it, buy it if you like it...and take care until next time." [PopDust; Twitter]
  • Say it ain't so, Ebert! The famed film critic writes that unless "we find an angel, our television program will go off the air at the end of the season." [Chicago Sun Times]
  • But while one series threatens to end, another is given life: "Spartacus" has already received a third season, according to a statement from Starz. Season 2, starring Australian actor Liam McIntyre (who is now in the lead role following the death of Andy Whitfield) begins January 27.
  • Matthew Fox is taking the lawsuit that alleges he punched a woman in her vagina and is raising it one counter-suit - the actor claims that he's not only lost work because of the allegations, which he denies, but that he's also been the subject of "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and shame." [GossipCop]
  • One thing we all - including Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian - can agree on: Kristen Wiig as Kris Jenner was pretty much the best thing about "SNL's" fairy tale divorce Kardashian spoof. [Us Weekly]
