We'll take "The Future Is Now" for $1 million, Alex. In a stunt that pits man against machine, TV's smartest quiz show challenges two of its most celebrated champs — Ken Jennings of the longest winning streak (74 games) and biggest money earner Brad Rutter ($3.2 million) — to go up against the IBM supercomputer known as "Watson" (and the subject of a recent PBS Nova documentary).
It's not easy being green, as Discovery Communications has discovered.
Planet Green, the eco-friendly channel that Discovery launched with much ballyhoo in 2008, turned out to not be as viewer-friendly as the company had hoped. Now, Discovery is planning to either revamp or completely replace the channel all together.

Fan fave Elizabeth Mitchell, who was nominated for a 2010 Emmy for her portrayal of Lost's tragic Juliet Burke and is now kicking lizard butt on ABC's V, has been signed for a horrifying guest role on NBC's Law & Order: SVU.
She'll be starring alongside returning guest star Jeremy Irons, who appeared earlier this season as the colorful Dr. Cap Jackson. Elizabeth will play an unmarried piano teacher who was the last person to see one of her students alive.

NBC's new Wonder Woman pilot from David E. Kelley will put a new spin on the role Lynda Carter embodied from 1975-79 — three identities, each with her own love interest.

On Monday, NBC.com will premiere its second digital comic based on its struggling series, The Cape — with a cover designed by famed comic artist Alex Ross.
The story for the second novel picks up the saga launched in the first — further exploring the origins of The Cape, the fictional comic book character that inspired the TV character Vince Faraday (David Lyons) to assume the identity of his son's favorite crime fighting hero. We don't yet know this Cape's identity, but there is a little more back-story coming in this novel about who he is and what his relationship is with the mysterious Isabel.
The entire digital comic will be viewable on NBC.com this Monday as the network's valentine to its loyal Cape fans. Check out a sneak peek after the jump....
You mean there was a game on this week?
While TV history was made with the Super Bowl becoming once again the most-watched program ever — my thoughts on the game, the ads, the Glee episode can be found here — it was a pretty super week of February sweeps madness on all fronts. Some significant new shows arrived, including Fox's terrific The Chicago Code (read my review) and ABC's not-quite-there-yet Mr. Sunshine (my review also includes comments on the return of Justified and the farewell of Friday Night Lights).
