While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "The Big Bang Theory" returned Thursday night with a ... boom, we'll go with boom: The CBS comedy netted its highest ever audience with 19 million tuning in. [EW]
  • While we're talking CBS comedies, Anna Faris has been tapped to play the single mom in Chuck Lorre's comedy pilot, "Mom." [Vulture]
  • We saw it coming on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," and now it's confirmed: NeNe Leakes and her ex-husband Gregg are engaged to tie the knot for a second time. If at first you don't succeed ... [E!]
  • The new A&E show based on "Psycho" - you know, the one called "Bates Motel" - now has a premiere date of March 18 at 10 p.m. [A&E]
  • Here's hoping "Skyfall" will get an Oscar nod to go along with the Academy's newly announced plan to celebrate the Bond franchise's 50th anniversary at this year's ceremony. [Movieline]
  • After Ashton Kutcher's "jOBS" premieres at Sundance this month, it'll make its way to theaters in April. [LAT]
  • Miley Cyrus seemed inconsolable when her pup Lila passed away recently - a death, it turns out, that was caused by another one of Miley's dogs that she ended up giving away - but the singer's spirits have been lifted with a new adoption. She introduced her Chihuahua mix, Bean, on Twitter. [Miley Cyrus' Twitter]
  • We hope you really are done working so that you can spend some time with this oral history of "Good Will Hunting" and the start of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's Hollywood takeover. It's lengthy, but engrossing: [Boston magazine]
  • Ashley Tisdale has signed up for the new Nicolas Cage-starring "Left Behind," and will portray Cage's daughter, Chloe. In the film, Chloe ends up wandering the country looking for the rest of her family after millions of people suddenly disappear. [Deadline]
  • With nine days till the Globes, Tina and Amy explain their reason for wanting to host the Globes (basically, because it's a "sloppy, loud party"):
