Today's news you might've missed:
"House" star Hugh Laurie, along with fellow executive producers David Shore and Katie Jacobs, announced Wednesday that this season of "House" will be its last.
"The producers have always imagined 'House' as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party," a statement says. "How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air."
And so, the three EPs thank "the hundreds of dedicated artists and technicians who have given so generously of their energy and talent to make 'House' the show it has been"; Fox and Universal Television; and, last but not least, the audience.
Gary Busey has filed for bankruptcy, a move his rep calls a strategy to help the actor and reality star gain a fresh start.
According to documents filed in California on Tuesday, Busey, 67, has less than $50,000 in assets while owing creditors anywhere between $500,000 and $1 million in debts. The decision to file Chapter 7 is part of a larger strategy, Busey's rep said.
"As with many great American institutions, i.e., General Motors, American Airlines, and others who have utilized the strategic business plan of bankruptcy, Gary's filing is the final chapter in a process that began a few years ago of jettisoning the litter of past unfortunate choices, associations, circumstances, and events."
Such a move would enable the actor to head down "a new and clear path toward peace, happiness, and success with his career and his wonderful new soulmate, Steffanie, and their son, Luke."
What does DJ Pauly D do when he’s not logging hours at the Shore Store, styling his infamous blowout, or picking grenades up at Karma? We'll soon find out.
The reality star's "Jersey Shore" spin-off, “The Pauly D Project,” is set to air on MTV in March. The 12-episode series will follow Pauly D on his quest to find a place in the music industry.
As it documents Pauly D’s post-“Shore” accomplishments, viewers will get to witness the DJ sign a recording contract with 50 Cent’s G-Note Records and join Britney Spears on her “Femme Fatale” tour, MTV writes in a press release.
Between Nick and Jess almost getting it on and Schmidt getting pinned in a parking deck for appearing to assault his boss, "New Girl" was quite amusing last night, despite a lack of plot development.
To start things off, Jess “out-crazed a man with a gun” when the man almost collided with Nick while trying to steal his parking spot. That brings up the discussion of Nick's negative outlook.
When Jess wants to call the landlord to fix some of the things in their apartment and Nick is adamant about her not calling the landlord, Jess chalks it up to him being such a Debbie downer.
If season 1 of "The X Factor" was "basically an audition act," as Fox's president of alternative entertainment, Mike Darnell, has said, former "X Factor" mentor/judge Nicole Scherzinger gave that "audition" her all.
The singer speaks on her recent, sudden departure from the series in an interview with "Access Hollywood," although she doesn't articulate exactly what happened with her exit.
"What happened? Well, all I know is that I gave 110 percent to that show," Scherzinger says. "I know everybody's talking about it, they're saying good, bad, they love me, they hate me, but one thing you can't say is that I didn't give it my all."
