[Disclosure: Grantland and Marvel are owned by the all-powerful Walt Disney Company, which did not pay for the placement of these items. Though they probably don’t hate that we did it. Wow, a new Tesla! Where did that come from? Gotta go!]

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has a release date. Wait, come back here! You definitely care about the Guy Ritchie reboot of a TV show nobody under the age of 50 has heard of!

Breaking Amish is getting a spinoff series. (They go back.)

Is Matt Lauer actually creepy around a young Olympian? Is Conan just editing him to be creepy? Unclear. (OK, maybe not that unclear.) But: #creepy.
