Could AMC's cancelled "The Killing" be rescued by Netflix or DirecTV? "A month after AMC pulled the plug on the whodunit, two potential suitors with experience bringing axed TV series back to life — Netflix and DirecTV — are in early talks with Fox TV Studios to pick up a third season of the show, multiple sources confirm to TVLine exclusively. A rep for Netflix declined to comment, while a DirecTV spokesperson said, 'We are constantly having conversations about bringing new shows to Audience Network, and we do take a look at everything that is available, but we haven’t made any decisions this summer in regards to new programming.'"

Who should host the Golden Globes if not Ricky Gervais? "Ricky Gervais has made friends and enemies these past three years hosting the Golden Globe Awards, with his penchant for feisty, frisky barbs and tongue-in-cheek British wit, but who else could fill the comedian’s shoes as host of the most fun awards show of the season? 'As of now, there are currently no plans for Ricky to host,' a rep from Gervais’ agent William Morris tells EW.com.

Daytime Emmys hope to secure a TV deal by November: "This year's TV deal for the Daytime Emmys didn't get signed until May 24, about a month before the ceremony. In no mood to repeat that experience, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences chairman Malachy Wienges told Variety today that he plans to have a deal for the 2013 Daytime Emmys closed by November. 'There’s no way that I could do what I did again last (time),' he said. Wienges said that he began work on the new set of TV negotiations last month and that he has had interest so far from one broadcast network, two cable networks and two production companies.  A possibility is going back to Turner-owned HLN for the second year in a row, though Wienges said TNT and TBS are also part of the Turner discussion."

Kathy Griffin tries to steal Kristin Chenoweth's Tony: "Hey! They say that laughter is the best medicine! And we bet that's exactly what Kathy Griffin brought her pal, Kristin Chenoweth, as she recovers from injuries sustained earlier this summer from a freak accident on the set of 'The Good Wife'! Although from the looks of it, the Broadway starlet might be returning the favor with a restraining order! LOLz! Ch-ch-check out one of the photos posted on Twitter, featuring the comedienne's attempt to steal Cheno's Tony Award right out of her hands!" PEREZ HILTON
