While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • This just hasn't been Justin Bieber's week. After experiencing technical problems with his live stream on Grammys night and getting picked apart by critics who tuned in to "Saturday Night Live," the 18-year-old has also lost his No. 1 spot on the Billboard albums chart. The new king of the Billboard 200 is Josh Groban. [Billboard]
  • According to Netflix, "House of Cards" is a home run. The streaming service says its newest - and highly praised - original series is its most-watched offering. [THR]
  • Yet again, Eric Church is in a prime position to walk away as a big winner on an awards show honoring country music. The musician picked up seven nods on this year's list of Academy of Country Music Awards nominees. [USA Today]
  • We don't deal well with change, and we can imagine "Harry Potter" fans aren't thrilled about their beloved books getting a makeover, either. The first of seven new covers for the U.S. editions was unveiled today. [LAT]
  • Well, this is certainly one way to entice spurned viewers back to your show: "The Killing" has cast Peter Sarsgaard for its third season. [EW]
  • Even without Christina Applegate, "Up All Night" is moving on. The plan is for NBC to film one multi-camera episode, even as the future of the show is uncertain. [Deadline]
