While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • After all of the drama from the MTV VMAs, the network execs can at least sleep easy tonight. The show saw a 66 percent uptick in ratings over last year, pulling in 10.1 million viewers.

VMAs rewind: Whose performance came out on top?

Contrary to Internet buzz, there were other performers besides Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV VMAs.

For starters, she wasn't alone on stage last night, and we're not talking about those huge dancing bears - Robin Thicke, in a "Beetlejuice"-inspired striped suit, performed "Blurred Lines" before getting an assist on his new single, "Give It 2 U," from Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz.
