Journalist and filmmaker Cameron Crowe was at the Television Critics Association's winter meetings Tuesday afternoon to talk about his upcoming series for Showtime, "Roadies," when someone asked him about any "memorable" experiences he might have had with David Bowie.

His answer was certainly memorable, and a reminder that Crowe might have had one of the coolest adolescences ever.

Here's what he had to say:

CBS' "Person of Interest" will return at some point this spring and its fate beyond that remains up in the air, but "Mike & Molly" is in its final season, CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller told reporters Tuesday during the Television Critics Association's winter meetings in Pasadena.

"Mike & Molly," which stars comedian Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy -- whose movie career appears to be doing just fine -- began its sixth season last week. It airs at 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays.

"These decisions are really challenging," Geller said, sounding like every other programmer who's ever canceled a show, and expressing respect for everyone connected with "Mike & Molly," from executive producer Chuck Lorre (producer of CBS' top-rated "The Big Bang Theory") to the cast.

James Corden will be driving (and harmonizing with) Adele when the latest edition of "Carpool Karaoke" debuts on Wednesday's "Late Late Show" on CBS.

And it was all perfectly safe, Corden insisted Monday.

Some reporters in Los Angeles for the Television Critics Association's winter meetings made up a chunk of the show's audience, hanging out afterward to chat with Corden on the set and getting a preview of the Adele spot, which runs about 13 minutes and shows the host executing maneuvers that would get most of us pulled over.

Mark your calendars, Westeros fans: The next installment of "Game of Thrones" arrives April 24.

The HBO version, anyway -- we'll have to wait an indeterminate amount of time longer for the George R.R. Martin one.

Still, time to place your bets on the fate of Jon Snow.

Chester County's M. Night Shyamalan will expand his TV footprint beyond Fox's Wayward Pines, with a new Tales from the Crypt horror block on TNT, TNT/TBS president Kevin Reilly announced Thursday.

"It is an umbrella for what I hopefully believe will be many shows," said  TNT/TBS president Kevin Reilly,"all united under the 'Tales from the Crypt' brand," and Shyamalan, he confirmed, would do some directing as well as curating the shows, which will feature hourlong episodes.

"This is a new genre for us in our series efforts and a great chance to partner with M. Night Shyamalan, whose blockbuster hit The Visit reminded movie audiences and critics this past summer that he truly is a master of horror," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT, in a prepared statement.

Comedy Central’s Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore has been all but quiet about his disdain for Bill Cosby.

Since the show’s debut in January of 2015, the allegations against Cosby have been a topic of discussion several times among his panels and he even dedicated an entire episode to dissecting the saga.

On December 30, 2015 the 78-year-old Philly-born comedian was charged with three charges of “aggravated indecent assault” from an incident in January 2004.
