This is the end. On May 8th, Meredith, Derek, and the rest of Seattle Grace will say goodbye to Christina Yang for good. Sandra Oh, who has played the sassy surgeon since 2005, announced last year that the show’s tenth season would be her last. Grab a box of Kleenex and watch this tribute to Oh’s best moments on the show. Then, ponder who will be your “person” now that she’s gone. [YouTube]

It’s the Roc! Though Rihanna has long been associated with Jay Z, and later managed by his Roc Nation imprint after it was established in 2009, the Bajan beauty has remained contractually bound to Def Jam (where Jay was once label president), since her 2005 debut. That was until yesterday when news broke that she is now signing with Roc Nation as an artist, extending her personal and professional link with the company. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Before Batman, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and the Riddler, there was Gotham. So promises the first trailer of Fox’s new drama following a young Commissioner James Gordon and an even younger Bruce Wayne. Starring Ben McKenzieDonal Logue, and Jada Pinkett Smith, the prequel will premiere this fall. [Variety]

Let the late-night talk show battle rage on. With Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers on NBC, and Stephen Colbert readying for CBS, ABC is keeping its commitment to Jimmy Kimmel through 2017. The network announced today that Kimmel’s contract has been extended for another two years; Jimmy Kimmel Live has been on-air since 2003 and has seen an increase in viewership each year for the last four years.

There’s a new guy on New GirlDamon Wayans Jr. Well… not really. After starring in the show’s pilot and landing a recurring season three spot, he’s being brought back as a series regular for season four. You can thank the demise of his other show, Happy Endings for his comeback kid moment. [Vulture]
