'Nurse Jackie' to end its run, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Edie Falco's Nurse Jackie is entering her final shift. Showtime has confirmed that season 7 will be the series' last.
  • It looks like Charlie Hunnam made the right call to focus on "Sons of Anarchy" instead of stretching himself thin with "Fifty Shades of Grey." The final season premiered to its biggest audience ever. [EW]
  • Khloe Kardashian might be back on the market, according to reports that the reality star is taking a break from her relationship with rapper French Montana. [Us Weekly]
  • Oof, this rumored Taylor Swift/Katy Perry feud is getting personal: rumor has it started over John Mayer. [Page Six]

'Homeland's' new trailer, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • What's up with all of the spoiler-rific teaser trailers lately? First ABC drops a "Scandal" bomb with Olivia Pope sipping wine on the beach, and then "Homeland" gives us a sneak peek at season four that made our eyes pop. Thankfully, though, both clips raise more questions than answers.


  • Kim Kardashian's ice bucket challenge is complete, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres:
  • On Taylor Swift's new album, there's a song called "Bad Blood," about a female artist with whom Swift doesn't exactly get along. She doesn't name names, of course, but everyone's thinking the track is really about Katy Perry: [HuffPost]
  • We think it's cute that Michelle Money and Cody Sattler from "The Bachelor: Paradise" want to get hitched. Maybe they'll be one of the few "Bachelor" couples who make it! [Us Weekly]
  • So, we take it that Jennifer Lopez's upcoming movie "The Boy Next Door" is a twisted version of "The Graduate"?

  • "Guardians of the Galaxy": No. 1, and for six weeekends in a row. [THR]
  • If this alternate ending to "How I Met Your Mother" that's been leaked online is in fact legitimate and included in the DVD box set, all is forgiven for what happened back in March. [BuzzFeed]

Jennifer Lawrence sets a new record, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Jennifer Lawrence could use some good news, no? In the midst of her photo drama, at least she can hold on to being the highest-grossing action movie heroine - a feat that puts her in the Guinness Book of World Records. [Guinness World Records]
  • While we're talking about "The Hunger Games," get a look at the first promo shot of Katniss from "Mockingjay - Part I." [EW]
  • Because she's Beyonce, the singer will be spending her 33rd birthday on September 4 in Corsica. [E!]
  • Both Scarlett Johansson and Alyssa Milano have welcomed newborn girls into their families. Johansson and her fiance, Romain Dauriac, confirmed the arrival of daughter Rose on September 4, the same day that Alyssa Milano and her husband, David Bugliari, welcomed daughter Elizabella Dylan. [MTV/Us Weekly]
  • GhostTunes may sound scary, but it's actually just Garth Brooks' new online music store. [NYT]

Allison Williams as Peter Pan, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • We know you have thoughts about Allison Williams as Peter Pan ... but all we're going to say is props to NBC's hair people on the wig. [Allison Williams' Instagram]
  • One person who won't be watching Lifetime's Brittany Murphy biopic? Murphy's dad, who's already said how much he hates it. [TV Guide]
  • Ariana Grande hasn't had a single "Problem" climbing to the top of the Billboard 200. "My Everything" is now a No. 1 album. [NYT]
  • Kaley Cuoco may or may not have just jokingly commented about that nude photo scandal. "What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico!" she captioned this photo on Instagram. "Feels like we forgot something?"
  • It's real, y'all: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is "Shazam's" Black Adam. [Variety]

'Magic Mike XXL' revs its engines, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

      • The likelihood that Emmy Rossum will be in the next nude photo leak is slim to none. The "Shameless" actress won't even send a text message to a guy, so we're pretty sure she's not offering sultry pictures. [Cosmopolitan]
      • Hearing two unreleased Adele songs just rubs salt in the "no new Adele album" wound, but we couldn't not share this with you. [NYMag's Vulture]
      • Kind of embarrassed that you keep binge-watching that same show? Netflix will now start keeping your secret. [EW]
      • Basically everyone skipped "The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story" on Lifetime in favor of more Labor Day noshing on Monday: the TV movie was watched by only 1.6 million. [THR]
