> Gray's Anatomy has lost T.R. Knight forever, but it's OK because he's in a better place now -- Broadway. Knight is set to star in a revival of Lend Me a Tenor opening in February 2010, in a role that once earned Victor Garber a Tony nomination. Actor Stanley Tucci will be making his directorial debut with the production, a comedy by Ken Ludwig about a night at the opera gone awry.
> TLC's T-Boz says there's a new TLC album in our future, though details are still sketchy about when it will happen and how the lost recordings of Left Eye will or won't figure in. Until then, we'll always have Shock Dat Monkey.
> Speaking of 1992, R.E.M. is dropping a new EP next Tuesday on iTunes, featuring live versions of four songs that were recorded at Dublin's Olympia Theatre in 2007. It'll be followed this fall by a two-disc album from the same session.
