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.
  • And if there's any lesson to take away from the event, it isn't that twerking with stuffed animals is probably a bad idea. (Although that's true.) It's that you should never, under any circumstances, sit in front of Rihanna. Things could get salty. [BuzzFeed]
  • The tree that Kanye West performed in front of at Sunday's show wasn't picked at random - but you likely knew that already, because this is Kanye we're talking about. Indeed, that tree has a far larger story than just appearing on the VMAs: [MTV]
  • "12 Monkeys" might become a Syfy drama, but the pilot order is cast-contingent - which we're hoping means that the network is somehow trying to land Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt for this. [Deadline]
  • Have you had time to fully digest the "Divergent" trailer yet? If not, here's the clip for further stewing:

    Syfy could never fund a show with Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt, I bet they could barely afford Tara Reid. Maybe CNN was mistaken and that it's actually Monkeynado.
