Today's TWoP News: Friday, June 29, 2012

It's not just scripted shows that are being shaken up at NBC.

After Ann Curry said goodbye yesterday as co-anchor of Today, NBC announced that she would be replaced by the show's current third hour co-host, Savannah Guthrie. Matt Lauer couldn't hear the news, as he was buried in a giant pile of money.

USA has picked up Graceland, a new series from White Collar creator Jeff Eastin. Despite the title, the show is about government agents living together undercover in a California beach house. Half of the premiere's viewers will probably be confused Elvis fans.

After just four episodes, TNT's Dallas has been renewed for a second season to premiere in 2013. The original show lasted for 14 seasons, but no pressure.

There is a new reality show being developed that will follow a matchmaker who helps chefs find love. It's going to be called Chef Wants a Wife, because Flavor of Love was already taken.

The premiere of Charlie Sheen's new sitcom Anger Management was the highest rated premiere in FX's history. So I guess FX isn't run by trolls?

NBC plans to air a live broadcast of The Sound of Music, from the producers of Smash. So expect Maria to wear plenty of scarves.
