Update: At Least Seven Bidders For Hulu
Update: The last time Hulu was in play, it was 2011 and an auction sale went nowhere. And before that, in 2010, an Ipo was contemplated but not pursued. So I’m somewhat skeptical about a successful outcome this time around. A myriad news reports are counting 7 named suitors (and an 8th unidentified pay TV outlet) who want the 6-year-old web video service outright or at least an equity stake. Most of the bids came in time for a soft Wednesday deadline set by co-owners Walt Disney Co, News Corp, and Comcast Corp without a formal M&A process. Yahoo came in Friday morning. More may follow.

Also, Fallon makes a very fetching Daenerys.
But the best part of the video came when the Late Night's Watch, played hilariously by The Roots, announced that "the real true 'Late Night' heir" is coming in February 2014. "Game of Desks" then cut to Seth Meyers prepping »
'Teen Wolf' Season 3 spoilers: 8 things to know about Scott, Stiles, Derek and more Beacon Hills faves
The "Teen Wolf" Season 3 tagline is "This might hurt." Well, we got a sneak peek at the first two new episodes, and we can definitely confirm that pain is in the cards for all the characters. And probably for the audience, too. The show returns June 3 at 10 p.m. Est, but in the meantime, here are eight teases to whet your appetite.
1. The hot identical Alpha twins get shirtless within the first few minutes of the premiere. You know, in case you aren't watching for the plot. Charlie Carver and Max Carver play the new kids at Beacon Hills High -- and just wait til you see them transform. They're different from any other werewolves, Alphas or not, that we've ever seen on the show before.
2. Beacon Hills is plagued by a series of murders. That's nothing new, of course, but this time, the slayings seem, oddly enough, not to »
