Today's news you might've missed:

  • Christopher Meloni's baby blues have been off our TV for too long. Blessedly, the former "SVU" (and brief "True Blood") star has landed a role in a comedy pilot that's based on Justin Halpern's book, "I Suck at Girls." [New York Magazine's Vulture]
  • You know a trailer's going to be good when it starts out with "viewer discretion advised" - as does the new preview for NBC's upcoming series, "Hannibal":
