Welcome to the jungle, folks. We've got fun and games. And today the first several come straight from Pop Candy, which has been full of interesting tidbits the last couple days:

Slate examines the success of the USA Network.

NBC is done super-sizing comedy episodes.

Speaking of NBC, David Hyde Pierce (Niles from Frasier) is gay.

Wired has a video interview with graphic novel/Lost writer Brian K. Vaughan.

To round out the blatant Candy ripping, a few more Lost notes: The Season 3 DVD seems to be set for Dec. 11 release, and Whitney compiled the 20 best comments from the sprawling finale discussion thread.

There are other sites and topics besides TV to discuss, and you can find all of that after the jump.

OK, a couple more TV things. EW shakes out what the NBC executive switcheroo means for your favorite shows. (Well, OK, the ones that barely any of you watch, but you should watch.)

And Stylus has a feature pitting The Office (UK) vs. The Office (USA).

Speaking of Stylus, My buddy David Holmes just started a movie writing gig there. Check out his take on Vacancy.
