Details for the 24th annual Shark Week — kicking off July 31 — are emerging. Today, Discovery announced that this year’s “Chief Shark Officer” Andy Samberg will host his own special with the working title Shark City. Per the network, ”Samberg travels to the Bahamas and takes the plunge — literally jumping into the shark-filled waters to introduce viewers to a specific group of sharks that live off the shores of Nassau. They each have their own distinct personalities, quirks and feeding patterns. Learn how they size each other up, what they like to eat and what scares THEM.” That’s all the info I have, but if this is something like Shark Week regular Stuart Cove introducing Samberg to individual Caribbean reef sharks and revealing what he’s come to know about them over the years he’s led his underwater adventures, that could be totally fun. If you’re going to swim with relatively non-threatening sharks like that, you’ve got to give us something different, and finding out that this shark responds more to women in bikinis and has therefore earned whatever nickname is acceptable.

It happened: Just six days ahead of Friday’s Royal Wedding, I found myself flipping channels Saturday night at my parents’ house, landing on Lifetime’s William & Kate right as Kate Middleton fled Prince William’s 21st birthday party. (He had invited another young woman up to help him blow out the candles.) “I’m the girl he hangs out with, not the one he brings home,” Kate said to her trailing friends, echoing the snooty mean girl who’d just assured her that William wouldn’t have time to socialize with his flatmate (who he was secretly sleeping with) at this public event. And with that, I was sucked in — not only to the rest of the movie but also to the repeat so I could see what I’d missed. You can watch William & Kate, “inspired by true events,” online now. SPOILER ALERT! The most ridiculous plot points make our poll below. READ FULL STORY
If you missed last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries and intend to watch it, stop reading now. SPOILERS FOLLOW. If you’re good to go, I’ve got to know: Are you suddenly hoping Klaus succeeds with the sacrifice, becomes a werevamp (or vampolf? it’s more European?), and tries to start his own hybrid race in season 3? I am. READ FULL STORY
When Justified exec producer Graham Yost teased that something horrific would happen at the end of season 2′s eleventh episode that would have Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan Givens “ready to explode,” we should have guessed he meant the (presumed) death of his Aunt Helen, but I didn’t see it coming until Dickie and his new Coover (Noover?) showed up in her kitchen. Watch the scene below. I hate to see a strong woman like Helen go, but if it was her on the stretcher shown in next week’s kickass promo (also embedded below), I like that she went out shotgun in hand. (We know from her gasp she was hit, but there were two shots fired.) I also like how it instantly made everything more complicated: Raylan already hates his father, whose new partnership with outlaw Boyd is to blame for Helen taking a bullet, but does he hate Dickie more? Will Raylan, who had no problem going rogue this episode, use his always-loaded guns on Dickie for revenge, or will he control himself and bring him in by the book? Will Mags turn on Dickie, who she’s already all but disowned, after what he did to Givens-Bennett peacekeeper Helen, or will she not want to lose another son to Raylan? And where does this leave Raylan and Boyd, who’s shown alongside Ava raising guns at Raylan in the promo? (Really, Ava?) READ FULL STORY
Today, Discovery announced that Saturday Night Live‘s Andy Samberg will host the cable channel’s 24th annual Shark Week this July. Samberg’s official title is Chief Shark Officer and comes with obligations to film on-air wraps for the week-long event and host a Shark Week special during which he may dive with the apex predators. He has to swim with sharks, right? I mean, we want to see the music video we assume he’ll shoot, too, but the host of Shark Week must get wet.
Samberg has big flippers to fill: Last year’s Shark Week, hosted by known enthusiast Craig Ferguson, was watched by almost 31 million people, making it Discovery’s highest rated to date. Ferguson swam with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas during his special and his fear produced some great moments. READ FULL STORY
Am I the only one who got a little nervous reading the detailed schedule for the Royal Wedding posted on the official site? Can you imagine American celebrities announcing what time they will leave and arrive, which entrance will be used, and where the bride will be staying the night before the ceremony? I understand this is an internationally televised wedding on an entirely different scale, but I still find it fascinating (and optimistic). Below is the schedule, copied and pasted with local times. The marriage service will being at 6 a.m. ET, the carriage procession of the bride and bridegroom with a Captain’s Escort of the Household Cavalry at 7:15 a.m. ET, the Buckingham Palace balcony photo op at 8:25 a.m. ET, and the “fly past” by the Royal Air Force and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Last night, Paramount and director J.J. Abrams presented a 20-minute sneak peek at two scenes from Super 8 to a small audience in New York. They were centered around moments we’ve all seen in the trailer: A group of 14-year-olds (including Elle Fanning and newcomer Joel Courtney, pictured) shooting their own Super 8 movie by the railroad tracks when a train derails and an unseen “thing” escapes, and that “thing” starts terrorizing a gas station attendant. Abrams asked writers not to spoil anything, so we won’t talk specifics. But I think it’s fair to discuss the conversations being had as we all filed out of the theater. READ FULL STORY
With Katie Couric’s contract with CBS Evening News due to expire June 4, rumors are again circulating that Couric may choose to leave the anchor desk. And David Letterman is having none of it. During a Late Show appearance Tuesday night, Couric told Letterman she is still figuring out what she wants to do. ”Once you take the anchor chair, that’s what you do,” Letterman said. “Is that a CBS law?” Couric laughed. “No, but it’s not like it’s a temp gig.” Evoking names like Walter Cronkite and Peter Jennings, he said anchors, “get in it, they saddle up and they ride into the sunset. Into the sunset!” He told her flat-out she should not leave. ”There’s a period of adjustment to get accustomed to the trust and build up faith in the character of the person presenting the news. And then you can’t just pull the rug out from under the viewers.”
“Okay,” Couric said sheepishly. “Okay, Dave.” Then they both laughed.
A rep for CBS Evening News had no comment on when the network expects a decision from Couric. Couric’s personal rep tells EW, “As Katie said, she is proud of the award-winning accomplishments of her team at CBS, but has not made a decision on her future.” When rumors circulated last October that Couric may leave CBS, 24 percent of readers responding to a PopWatch poll on her next move said she should stay with CBS Evening News, 19 percent suggested she return to Today, and 57 percent said she should do something entirely different.
