The NFL later pulled singer Rihanna from the intro to its Thursday Night Football schedule last week. Instead of quieting things down, pulling Rihanna from the opening sequence stirred the pot, and now the “We Found Love” singer is speaking out about her treatment by the NFL.
In this excellent preview, viewers are ushered into Gotham’s world in the most immersive way possible, at least through a video clip. It helps if you splash water on your face while you’re watching. Trust me. I'm Batman.
While most networks are just now giving new projects pilot commitments, Netflix is not nearly as restricted as the networks and just signed on for two seasons of a brand new project this morning.

During last week's live Big Brother episode, Julie Chen laid out the next few episodes' worth of events. That includes two evictions this week, the first of which will air tomorrow night.

What's great is that the studio and filmmakers have found the perfect actor to play him.
