Dan Harmon off Community
NBC dealt another one of its notorious blows to Community creator and showrunner Dan Harmon, by firing him without, Harmon claims, contacting him before the decision was announced. "Why'd Sony want me gone? I can't answer that because I've been in as much contact with them as you have," Harmon wrote on his blog on Saturday. "They literally haven't called me since the season four pickup, so their reasons for replacing me are clearly none of my business." Fans of the series, which has a notable cult following, have taken their outrage over NBC's decision viral, rallying campaigns to have Harmon re-hired or, at the very least, kept on as a writer. Time will only tell how NBC -- still reeling from 2010's Leno vs Conan debacle -- plays this one.
Mark Zuckerberg Weds
Facebook CEO and Silicon Valley wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg wed his longtime partner, Priscilla Chan, on Saturday. The couple met in 2004 when Zuckerberg, 28, was in the early stages of developing Facebook, while Chan studied to become a pediatrician. The marriage took place only days before Facebook shares dropped nearly 14 percent. That's $2.2 billion in terms of Zuckerberg's fortune.
Ryan Seacrest has purchased Ellen Degeneres' 8,500-square-foot estate for $37 million. This comes after several years of real estate woes for Seacrest.

It is now priced at $12 million, and we can bet the E! correspondent is eager to settle into Degeneres' four luxurious bedrooms and six bathrooms. Don't worry -- Portia and Ellen are moving just down the "street," staying put in Beverly Hills.
Wiig's Weepy Exit

Dog 'The Bounty Hunter' Chapman is looking for a new home after A&E decided to cancel his long-running reality series after eight seasons. The show's bizarre action (mostly involving Dog dragging criminals into his car and driving off into the sunset) is only matched by Chapman's personal life, which took center stage over the last few years, notably when his daughter and business partner Lyssa, 24, was arrested for assaulting a police officer.
