Was LA just dethroned as the TV capital as the world? Maybe!
According to a new report, in the past 2013/2014 development cycle, 24 hour-long drama were shot in NYC (the number 24, not the show 24) while only 19 were taped in El Lay!
Looks like the city that never sleeps is hustling hard!
This is clearly a sign
of the Apocalypse that Los Angeles is losing more and more pilots to other cities!
In fact, last year LA's pilot production share was 52% for LA, which has since dropped to only 44%. Six years ago? It was at 82%!
Looks like the times they are a-changin'! Does this mean the West Coast will have to relinquish its "Best Coast" title?

By the old gods and the new, this news is AHmazing!
The United Kingdom may join the seven kingdoms of Westeros yet, as the British village of Kings Langley will officially change its name to the Game of Thrones capital, Kings Landing.
The re-naming day of the village will happen in February and last a week as part of a promotion for the show's season three DVD release!
We've GOT to give Kings Langley a hand (of the king…or Jaime Lannister) for being such loyal fans! Just like Davos, we give this alteration
two thumbs four fingers up!
We hope there's a ton of festivities planned, except maybe no weddings during that week?

Does Rita Ora know to have a good time or WHAT?!
As she should, given the fact that she returned to her hometown to film this!
Ch-ch-check out the music video for the pop star's new single, Shine Ya Light, off her debut album, ORA, which takes place in Kosovo's capital city Pristina (above)!
So COOL, right?!
It's almost like getting a small peek into her personal life!
Not to mention how STUNNING the scenery is! It goes so well with the anthemic feel of the track!
We LOVE watching you "set the world on fire" a little more every day!
Keep it up, gurl!

This is a story that is truly stranger than fiction.
A teenage boy named Ray wandered in the German capital of Berlin nine months ago and claimed that he had been living in the forest with his father for the last five years.
He told authorities in English that his father took him into the wilderness after

Alec and Hilaria sittin' in a tree! K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
Okay, there's no tree, but the recently engaged couple did spend the better part of their time in Rome this week getting all cute and cuddly.
The 30 Rock actor and his fiancée were in the Eternal City to promote Woody Allen's latest movie, To Rome With Love. When Alec wasn't getting down to business though, he was all about the pleasure!
The two were spotted strolling around Italy's capital on Thursday and they didn't hold back on the PDA.
Check out more adorable pics of the couple's Rome-antic getaway (below)!

Did Piper Palin just give a reporter a shoulder check!? LOL!!!
While boning up on American history during her bus tour stop in Philadelphia, PA, Sarah Palin was mobbed by reporters asking complicated questions like, "What are you doing here?"
Luckily, her 9-year-old daughter/undercover security guard has a sixth sense for these types of situations and swooped in to run interference while her mother avoided giving any kind of logical answer.
Unfortunately for Piper, the reporter's lengthy reach still allowed him to get his microphone close enough to Sarah's mouth to pick up her ramblings about history, family, and other things she thinks voters want to to hear.
Check out the video above to see Piper planting herself firmly between Sarah and a curious reporter during the Palin family's visit to one of the nation's most historic cities.
