ASK DISHER: "What do you think of online dating?"

Another MONK webisode starring Lt. Randy Disher.

Dr. Horrible vs. Batman

TV star Neil Patrick Harris clearly has musical talent, given his song-and-dance appearances on everything from The Emmys and Sesame Street to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and even the 100th episode of How I Met Your Mother. Last fall, Cartoon Network series Batman: The Brave and the Bold recruited NPH to play Music Meister, a bad guy whose hypnotic voice forces everyone around him to sing and dance to his whim -- including Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Black Canary, plus an assortment of familiar baddies. They even released a soundtrack album.

LAW & ORDER on its way to the record books

Businessweek reports that NBC plans to order a 21st season of Law & Order, which would make the legal drama the longest-running prime-time drama in TV history. (Of course, while it may break Gunsmoke's record of 20 years, L&O has a ways to go before it breaks Gunsmoke's record of 635 episodes.)

The network also revealed its ordering a whopping 18 pilots this spring, including a remake of Rockford Files from House creator David Shore and a new spy thriller from Fringe creator and Star Trek director J.J. Abrams.

Meanwhile, Abrams' Trek screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are working on a remake of Hawaii Five-O for CBS, while ABC is reportedly eyeing a new Charlie's Angels.
