It's always an interesting feeling when people react to things completely differently than you do, and this is a great example — this newspaper account talks about how James Corden dedicated his Tony Award (for One Man, Two Guvnors) to his girlfriend, and calls it "cringeworthy." I was going to say "adorable." [The Telegraph]

I'm not entirely convinced people really watch Cake Boss for the cake, but in case you do, Buddy Valastro is rolling out a line of cakes you can buy at the grocery store. Presumably, he did not decorate them himself with the help of a bunch of loud relatives. [Bloomberg Businessweek]

Will publishers soon have oodles of information about you, and if they do, what might that mean? [Nieman Lab]

Tensions ran high at last week's BookExpo when it came to e-books and Amazon, to the point where somebody started quoting Henry V. Really. [Cleveland Plain Dealer]

Interesting story on radio royalties from The New York Times, which reports on a deal between Clear Channel and Taylor Swift's label. (Again: really.) [The New York Times]

Speaking of the NYT, the very sharp Brian Stelter has an intriguing story about what's become of daytime television in the post-Oprah age. [The New York Times]

I'm not sure anyone is going to cry any tears over the delay of the Dirty Dancing reboot, but it's been pushed off for another year. [Deadline]

It's always interesting to see what bubbles up when something on television is unexpectedly successful, and the A&E miniseries Hatfields & McCoys, which recently played to huge ratings, has set off just such a bubbling. The latest: a reality show about real Hatfields and real McCoys. [AP]
