Population in Lochte Nation is Dwindling: Apparently, not that many people are interested in learning what Ryan Lochte would do, or has been doing, since the Olympics. Ratings for his new E! reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, were pretty abysmal. Only 807,000 people tuned in to the show’s Sunday premiere. Maybe they were just watching Game of Thrones instead — the HBO drama scored its highest ratings yet, pulling in 4.9 million viewers. [The Hollywood Reporter]

A Pitch Perfect Reunion: Following in the footsteps of the MTV Movie Awards’ big Pitch Perfect reunion, TBS is getting the cast back together in its new comedy pilot, Ground Floor. The a cappella comedy’s leading man, Skylar Astin, stars in the new TBS show, which has just cast one of The Bellas’ resident hotties in a supporting role. Alexis Knapp will play a party girl coworker of Astin’s love interest, Briga Heelan. [Deadline]

Storm’s a-Brewin’ in Malibu Country: The ABC comedy Malibu Country is on the bubble in terms of its renewal chances, and there’s even more trouble afoot for the freshman show. Nastaran Dibai, the sitcom’s second showrunner (who took over after the creator headed to rehab in November), will not return for Season 2. [Deadline]

Casting Couch: Nashville‘s faux country stars will mingle with a real-life superstar when “Accidental Racist” Brad Paisley guests on the ABC drama. Just how did the casting department land him? It could possibly have something to do with the fact that he’s married to Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who plays Peggy Kenter, the other woman in Rayna and Teddy’s crumbling marriage. [TVLine]
