Kara DioGuardi, Platinum Hit
Bravo just can't get enough of Kara DioGuardi.
Mere days before the Memorial Day premiere of her new reality competition show, Platinum Hit, the network announced that they're developing a docu-series revolving around her life.
Kara (working title) will follow the former American Idol judge as she gives insight into her life as music producer and publisher, multi-platinum songwriter and record executive. No word if there will be bikinis involved.
Jon Hamm will be pulling double duty when Mad Men goes back into production in August. The actor, who stars as the hard-drinking advertising whiz Don Draper, will direct the Emmy-winning drama's fifth season premiere, TVLine reports.
"The wheels have officially been set in motion to make that happen," Hamm says. "It's a very exciting challenge that I'm looking forward to with a mixture of utter fear and excitement."
Actor Jeff Conaway, who's been comatose in a Los Angeles hospital, may be taken off life support, RadarOnline reports.
A source close to the situation says, "Doctors advised the family that Jeff has had no brain function since he was brought into the hospital. The feeding tube has already been removed. The ventilator which is breathing for Jeff, will be removed sometime this afternoon. Jeff is in no pain whatsoever."
Game of Thrones has faithfully added to its body count ever since premiering in April with several beheadings, but Sunday's episode featured what Harry Lloyd calls the "best death ever."
Spoiler alert! If you haven't watched Episode 6, "A Golden Crown," yet, you're really doing yourself a disservice if you continue reading.

After last week's Game of Thrones stayed firmly in Westeros, Sunday's episode (airing at 9/8c on HBO) returns to the land of the Dothraki, those nomadic warriors across the Narrow Sea who value a good piece of horseflesh for both riding and eating.
But we're not here to discuss Dothraki livestock recipes, as delicious as they may be. Instead, we shall delve into their language, a liquid-sounding tongue inspired by the limited Dothraki vocabulary, as seen in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels on which Thrones is based. Executive producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, with the help of the Language Creation Society's mononymous Sai, selected David J. Peterson to create and expand the Dothraki language, which now stands at 2,763 words at the last count, for the HBO series.
Supernatural's war in Heaven is upon us as the series airs its two-part finale on Friday (8/7c on The CW), and showrunner Sera Gamble promises some deaths, Sam's long-awaited breakdown and "a lot of Castiel" in both episodes.
Gamble wrote the night's first episode, "Let It Bleed," which introduces a new player -- at least historically -- into the series. Apparently, the late, real-life horror writer H.P. Lovecraft is somehow mixed up in the Winchesters' battle to keep Purgatory at bay. Anyone familiar with his Chthulu mythos will recognize that his terrifying creations fit right in with the Supernatural world.
Now that we're halfway into the Game of Thrones season, the action has really become meaty (much like the roast venison that graces King Robert's table). In Sunday's episode, everyone gets in on the killing (even The Imp!) and there's so much intrigue to be had, the action actually stayed in Westeros the entire time. To balance out the multiple deaths and brutality, we got a whimsical helping of grotesquery thanks to original scenes written specifically for the HBO series. Shall we delve into "The Wolf and the Lion"?
On a sunny day at the North Hollywood Medical Center, Chuck is shooting its Season 4 finale (airing Monday at 8/7c on NBC), in which spy and bride-to-be Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) is hospitalized — near death — after an attack by Vivian Volkoff (Lauren Cohan). Despite the subject matter, the mood on the set is anything but grim.
"It's a crazy roller coaster of love, and I'm gonna stand on that," star Zachary Levi tells reporters, describing the show's genre-spanning style. He might as well be referring to the cast and crew's camaraderie though.
