Updated and corrected: Ben Bailey, host of Discovery’s Cash Cab, won a daytime Emmy for best game show host last year, not this year. I regret the error. His show has still been cancelled. This year’s winner was Todd Newton, who hosts Family Game Night on Hub.

Not actually news: For some reason, my DVR continually records every episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, even though I’ve instructed it to record just new episodes, and it simultaneously promises me that it will record The Glee Project and then just does not.
