Today's news you might've missed:
The History Channel didn't have to battle for viewers on Monday night, thanks to the feuding "Hatfields & McCoys."
The first part of the miniseries came out swinging Monday, with 13.9 million viewers tuning in. The network expressed its appreciation for the show of support on Twitter, noting that the huge turnout made it "the No. 1 non-sports telecast in ad-supported cable history!"
In a statement on TVLine, the network's president, Nancy Dubuc, said that the History Channel has "[owned] historical drama ... with guns a-blazin'!"
Although Christian Bale is happy with the way his character Bruce Wayne's story ends in this summer's "Dark Knight Rises," he is going to miss slipping into that snug Batman costume.
"You know, for all the kind of discomfort, and all the heat and the sweat and the headaches and everything from it, when you sit back and watch the movie at the end of the day you end up going, 'that's f*****g cool!'" Bale told Movies.com of his alter-ego's iconic outfit. "So I will. I will miss it."
As far as the extent of his interaction with Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Bale played coy, saying that fans will just have to wait to see the movie when it arrives in theaters July 20.
In the meantime, there's the latest "Dark Knight Rises" TV spot to view. It's only 30 seconds, but we'll take it!
The topic of race in Hollywood is a layered one, and it seems Idris Elba would like to take a break from sifting through it.
The “Luther” star, who has roles in the upcoming thrillers “Prometheus" and “No Good Deed” as well as the lead in the Nelson Mandela biopic, "Long Walk To Freedom," recently told New York magazine's Vulture that he's grown weary of discussing the opportunities for white actors versus actors of color.
“I’m so bored of answering that," said the 39-year-old, who rose to fame playing Stringer Bell in “The Wire." "Are there differences between black actors’ opportunities and white actors’ opportunities? Yes, there are. It’s been said. I’d rather a young black actor read about success as opposed to how tough it was. I get these roles because I can act and that’s it. Hopefully that’s it. The less I talk about being black, the better."
Justin Bieber’s not letting recent legal drama put a damper on his chart momentum.

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but Madonna's recent cover of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" might not be seen as such.
While rehearsing for her M.D.N.A. tour, the Material Mom made it a point to mashup her classic song “Express Yourself” with Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way."
When Gaga first dropped the single, music fans were quick to point out the similarity between the two tracks, something that hasn't been lost on Madge.
