You’ll find this post much meatier than the usual link dump. Enjoy. (image via Fashionista Puppies)

‘Party Down’ Is Dead. Long Live ‘Party Down’ — Rob Thomas, Jon Enbom, and Dan Etheridge — the creators of the brilliant and hilarious but little-watched “Party Down” — are developing a single-camera office comedy called “Temps” with the same executive producers as the defunct Starz comedy. NBC won an “aggressive” bidding war to develop the show. Yep, I’m gonna wanna see that. [Variety]

When people stop being polite, and start defusing bombs. G4 is making a docu-series inspired by The Hurt Locker called “Bomb Patrol: Afghanistan” that will follow a Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit throughout training and a deployment. EOD guys are probably my favorite people in the Navy: badasses who are less douchey than SEALs. [Cinematical]

Wait, that’s not the real poster? This subway poster for “She’s Got the Look” couldn’t be more perfectly defaced. [Best Week Ever]

Snooki: fashionably detested. I found this kind of fascinating: apparently, Snooki is getting free designer handbags — from designers’ competitors. [NY Observer]

Montel Williams: Professional Pot Dealer? Williams is looking to become “the celebrity face of the Bay Area medical marijuana business.” [SFist]

Vanilla Ice is a huge star. The man also known as Robert Van Winkle is already in talks to be in a new reality show before his current reality show — DIY’s “The Vanilla Ice Project” — has even begun to air. [Country Grind]

‘Always Sunny’ Meets The Replacements. The cast of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” is on the cover of the most recent Filter Magazine. Pretty cool. [Filter]

Yay? Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks TV, and the geek power team of Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci will bring the acclaimed comic Locke & Key to TV. Probably on Fox, where it will be quickly canceled in favor of another Seth MacFarlane series. [Gamma Squad]

Watch out for Triple Asian Flu. The five best moments from last night’s episode of “Hard Knocks.” [Kissing Suzy Kolber]

Hooray for artistic integrity! The scene in The Social Network where Justin Timberlake snorts coke off a woman’s boobs will NOT be edited out of the movie. [FilmDrunk]

I’m sorry, ma’am, but you’ll have to repeat Salinger 101. Elin Nordegren gave an interview to alert everyone that she won’t be giving interviews. [With Leather]

‘Does your religion have a deity that looks like the cover of an 80’s metal album?’ Six awesome deities you wish your religion had. [Uproxx]
