David Duchovny:

NBC has ordered 13 episodes of Aquarius, a series about a cop who tracks down Charles Manson.  It will star Duchovny.

Press Release:

"NBC has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order for the drama “Aquarius,” starring two-time Golden Globe Award winner David Duchovny in his return to broadcast television.

In this gripping drama series set in the late 1960s, Duchovny stars as a Los Angeles police sergeant with a complicated personal life who starts tracking a small-time criminal and budding cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his “cause.” The name of that man is Charles Manson. The twists and turns of a complicated undercover operation will lead Duchovny’s character and his young partner to the brink of Manson’s crimes that will eventually lead to the Tate-LaBianca murders in subsequent seasons."


Ink Master - Spike TV renewed the series for it's fifth season.


It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

If you're a fan of the show, you'll be happy to know that FXX has renewed the funny series for another two seasons.


Rake viewers: If you are following the show, be aware that FOX is moving the series to burn off whatever episodes are left.

They're moving it to Saturdays, beginning April 5th.  Though, oddly, there has been no confirmatio of when the final episode of the series will air.
