DC Comics' Supergirl is coming to TV this November. Following the adventures of Kryptonian refugee, Kara Zor-El (Superman's cousin), Supergirl looks like a lot of TV shows combined into one. We have a Devil Wears Prada-esque tough female boss in Calista Flockhart's Cat Grant, and a secret government agency dealing with extraterrestrial threats! How much awesome cliches can one show have?

Supergirl better be strong if she's going to carry that many plotlines.

Careful here, Trekkies.

A lengthy and rumor-based report out of the Latino Review said that CBS is in the process of bringing Star Trek back to where it began. Namely, the small screen.

"GREAT news, Trekkers, CBS is looking to bring Star Trek back to TV...

We don't have too many details about the new Star Trek series CBS is going to get working on, but I spent some time filling you in on Federation, because it seems like the same people who made that pitch could be involved. Bryan Singer's name has been mentioned for the new CBS Trek as a possible Executive Producer through his Bad Hat Harry productions. While "Star Trek: Reboot the Universe" was invalidated by 2008's movie Trek, Star Trek: Federation still has a trio of enthusiastic producers, a script and a writer ready to go should CBS decide to give Singer the ahead to develop this new series.

Robert Burnett is rumored to be working on a non-Trek project with Skydance Productions (Skydance worked with Paramount, McQuarrie and Bad Robot on M:I 5) and simultaneously keeping one foot in the Trek world. He's currently producing (one of the producers) a project independent of all previously mentioned parties, Star Trek: Axanar, a 90-minute fan-made feature film about "The Four Years War," as mentioned in the TOS episode "Whom Gods Destroy."



Latin Review also mentions J. Michael Straczynski, of Babylon 5 fame, as a possible contributor.

If you've paid attention, this is not the first time we've heard it. Rumors clanged around the ol' Internet last year that growing original content maker Netlix wanted to take a stab at showing starfleet command.

CBS has made a five-year deal with Colbert, which was announced Thursday by CBS Corp. Letterman announced his pending 2015 retirement on April 3.

"Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career," Colbert said. "I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead. I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth."

Comedy Central released this statement: "Comedy Central is proud that the incredibly talented Stephen Colbert has been part of our family for nearly two decades. We look forward to the next eight months of the ground-breaking Colbert Report and wish Stephen the very best."
