"Days of Our Lives" hopes a reboot will keep it alive on NBC: "The producers have been promising to 'reset' the daytime drama this fall to include 'more contemporary stories based on the solid foundation of the 'Days' history of family, romance, and drama.' Translation: They’re trying to keep 'Days' as relevant as possible to ensure that soaps continue to have a place in daytime for as long as possible. Getting [Deidre] Hall and [Drake] Hogestyn back was definitely a step in the right direction." EW.COM

Adele has reconciled with the ex who inspired her album "21": "She still hasn't identified her old boyfriend, whose departure inspired 'Rolling in the Deep,' 'Someone Like You' and much of the rest of Adele's breakout second album, '21.' 'He changed my life, I can't deny that,' the singer told [UK's the Independent]. 'The album helped me get over splitting up with my boyfriend. It helped me forgive and I hope that he has forgiven himself.'" ROLLING STONE

Nirvana's landmark grunge album "Nevermind" turns 20 today: "With their untucked flannel shirts, messy hair and laid-back air, the three members of Nirvana projected pure slackerdom when they burst onto the cultural scene in 1991. But that look was deceiving. As an expansive new multi-disc re-release of 'Nevermind' reveals, the band worked incessantly for more than a year to craft an album that went on to rock the foundation of the music business in the same way that the Sex Pistols' (similarly titled) 'Never Mind the Bollocks' caused a punk explosion in the disco age." USA TODAY

Lady Gaga will unveil a new short film at Paris Fashion Week: "The film was directed by "Yoü and I" fashion-film directors and fashion photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti, Mugler's creative director and Gaga's stylist. The film will feature a previously-unreleased remix of one of Gaga's songs. For those not lucky enough to attend, a special edit of the film will drop the following day online." MTV

Eccentric, Oscar-nominated director David Lynch directs a trailer for the Vienna Film Festival: "The Vienna International Film Festival, aka the Viennale, scored a coup for its latest promotional festival trailer: This year’s comes from none other than David Lynch. Titled 'The 3 Rs,' it serves as a very brief return to film while Lynch preps the release of his blues album. The Viennale, set for Oct. 20-Nov. 2, has a tradition of seeking out high-profile directors for these shorts, and because 2006′s 'Inland Empire' was the last Lynch has been seen, this one’s sure to attract a lot of eyeballs."

The police drama "Rampart" has been pikced up by Millennium Entertainment: "Millennium Entertainment has picked up U.S. rights to Oren Moverman’s 'Rampart,' in which Woody Harrelson plays a cop patrolling the Rampart precinct of Los Angeles. Moverman, who previously collaborated with Harrelson on 'The Messenger,' co-wrote the screenplay with crime writer James Ellroy. In addition to Harrelson, the movie stars Ben Foster, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, Steve Buscemi, Anne Heche, Cynthia Nixon, Ice Cube, Brie Larson and Ned Beatty." HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Friday-night dramas "A Gifted Man" and "Fringe" get off to a slow ratings start: "In its premiere last night, 'A Gifted Man' (1.4/5) matched the season debut in the hour of 'Medium' last year. ('Medium' was cancelled a couple of months later.) That was down 39% from the season opener of 'Ghost Whisperer' the year before ... Fox’s 'Fringe' (1.5/5) and its lead-in, 'Kitchen Nightmares' (1.6/6) were both down from January when the network first paired them together on Friday and the 2 series debuted with a 1.9/6 each. Still, a 1.5 and 1.6  was good enough for Fox to post its highest-rated premiere Friday in 6 years and finish second for the night in 18-49, tied with NBC." DEADLINE
