While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • The countdown can now kick off in earnest for "Arrested Development's" return on Netflix, because we now have a premiere month. (No, not a date, but we'll take what we can get.) Fourth season and 14 episodes are coming in May! [Netflix's Twitter]
  • Bethenny Frankel's appearance on "Ellen" brought out the waterworks. "I've kind of had the best worst year ever," the newly separated reality star said. [E!]
  • "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham waxed and plucked her 3-year-old daughter's brows because she feared that her daughter would be subjected to bullying. Sigh. [ABC News]
  • "30 Rock" is going to say good-bye with the company of old friends. Both Will Arnett and Salma Hayek will be back before the comedy leaves the air - Arnett tomorrow night, and Hayek for the big farewell itself. [NBC/Vulture]
  • Did you miss Kimmel's "Celebs read mean tweets" segment last night? If so - or if you just want to relive the laughs - you're welcome:

Strong start for Kimmel in new timeslot

Jimmy Kimmel's surely hoping that this is a sign of things to come.

The late night host is off to a solid start in his new 11:35 p.m. timeslot. On Tuesday night, his debut in that competitive hour, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" saw its second largest audience with 3.1 million viewers tuning in, according to ABC. On average, the show would draw 1.9 million viewers when it aired at midnight.

But perhaps more important for Jay Leno and David Letterman was how well Kimmel performed against their competing programs.

In terms of total viewers, Leno narrowly edged out Kimmel with 3.27 million watching "The Tonight Show." Letterman's "Late Show," over on CBS, brought in 2.88 million.
