Olympics; Shawn Ryan; 'Hole in the Wall'

-- Dish Network is partnering with NBC to give viewers the option of watching Olympics coverage on six screens at once -- an enjoyably familiar viewing experience for James Bond villains and security guards alike.

-- Roger Catlin says Fox's plan to debut its wall-dodging game show "Hole in the Wall" on the anniversary of 9/11 is in poor taste. Just wait until the show's Dec. 7 episode where contestants dress as sailors and try to escape flooding compartments

-- Tim Goodman says insane gas prices may have helped summer TV ratings (hmm, though perhaps most broadcast viewers own hybrid cars).

-- The scoop on "The Shield" showrunner Shawn Ryan's next project at FX. And A&E. And Fox.

-- CBS considering the red pill: Lawrence Fishburne is CBS' top choice to play the serial-killer-DNA-havin' William Petersen non-replacement replacement.

-- Oprah delivered Barack Obama precisely 1 million votes in the primaries, say two University of Maryland economists who couldn't possibly know for certain what they're claiming

-- Here's which ABC comedy pilots are hot.

-- How cable nets are using the Olympics as an excuse to make use of their stockpile of China archival video footage.

-- Joss Stone is joining "The Tudors" ... "SNL" vet joins Fallon's "Late Night" ...  Lifetime orders pilot ... NBC will air preview of fall schedule ... NBC replaces "My Own Worst Enemy" showrunner.
