PLUNGE FOR DISTANCE, DENIED: Following up from our June 2015 post, IOC sportocrats have added for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games the sports of skateboarding, surfing, "climbing," karate, and baseball/softball. (Squash, bowling, and wushu: denied.)
I renew my request that the modern pentathlon be reformed to include the five disciplines essential to Back to the Future: skateboarding, running, boxing, guitar-playing, and auto racing.

REACTIVATE THE UNNECESSARY REBOOTS BOT: Steven Bochco wants to reboot L.A. Law. With Good Wife having ended, there's not a good network show set in a law firm (as opposed to a DA's office) running, and Suits is about it on the cable side, and I think there's potential here--kick it off with McKenzie dying (a la Chaney's death in the original pilot), and Brackman finding it uncomfortable as the firm's central figure.
