'Grey's' Most TiVo'ed; Pitt Producing 'Normal Heart'

Brad pitt • The most TiVo'ed show currently on TV is "Grey's Anatomy," reported Entertainment Weekly. This title, however, matters little to ABC because "live ratings mean a lot more." Ouch.

• Hulu is launching in Japan, where the website will finally offer content from CBS. So far, CBS was the only one of the big four networks that had yet to strike a deal with Hulu. Read the story at Los Angeles Times.

New York Magazine analyzes thoroughly AMC and its troubles with success. Bottom line: No matter how talented the writing and the cast are, budgets will always be the main influence on a show's direction, especially in a recession.

• The future of "The Lone Ranger" is also up in the air due to budget concerns. It may come down to whether or not director Gore Verbinski's vision for the movie is within Disney's price range, according to Deadline. That's right: blockbuster films have artistic integrity.

• Ryan Murphy, creator and director of "Glee," will direct the film adaptation of "The Normal Heart." Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment will produce the film with Mark Ruffalo attached to star. Read the story at Playbill.
