North West is an angel, and more news to note

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Now that Kim Kardashian has officially come out of hiding, her daughter North is getting more camera time, too. "I missed waking up with my little angel," Kardashian shared on Instagram Friday, after returning from Paris. [Kim Kardashian's Instagram]
  • Gladiators, consider your mission accomplished: "Scandal's" season three premiere had the highest ratings the show has ever seen, while other debuts simply ate its dust. [THR]
  • Ratings have been particularly unlucky for ABC's "Lucky 7." The freshman drama, which has aired just two episodes, is the first new show of the fall season to be canceled. [EW]
  • May Walter White rest in peace: Some thoughtful "Breaking Bad" fans submitted a paid obituary to the Albuquerque Journal which we found via Twitter. He died on Sunday after "a long battle with lung cancer, and a gunshot wound," the obituary read. "He will be greatly missed." (But, guys, you do know he's still on Netflix, right?) [ABQ Journal]
  • Robin Thicke is 100 songs into his career, but it wasn't until "Blurred Lines" - and, more importantly, shaking it with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards this summer - that put him on the map with an entirely new audience. As a result, song of the summer "Blurred Lines" has "sold more, and the video was seen more, than everything else I’ve ever done combined." [VF]

For this Sunday's "Treehouse of Horror XXIV," del Toro is using nearly every horror reference in the book in a ghoulish couch gag, one that reinvents "The Simpsons'" opening credits.

Cory Monteith's memorial episode on 'Glee': Get the tissues

If you somehow didn't guess already, you will need Kleenex for next week's tribute to Cory Monteith on "Glee."

A new trailer offers plenty of fair warning, as it features Monteith's girlfriend and co-star, Lea Michele, singing "Make You Feel My Love" as the rest of the cast mournfully bids farewell to Monteith's character, Finn Hudson.

For Sinead O'Connor, the pen is truly mightier than the sword.

By now, the singer has written not one, not two, but three open letters to Miley Cyrus, with the latest threatening legal action against the pop star.

Cyrus hasn't been as verbal as O'Connor, but she hasn't been silent, either - it seems the last two open letters were crafted in response to some of Cyrus' tweets.
