Bear Grylls is back on the air! THR reports on the comeback of his unscripted show Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel, which put the series back on the tube on Monday, re-edited of course.

The network added a disclaimer, THR says, to four episodes from the first season which featured not-so-natural actions by Grylls while “living in the wild.” Those acts included checking into a motel and assistance while building rafts or bridges. Read the full report here.

Gordon Finds 4-year Home at ABC
Producer Mark Gordon, known for his big-screen work on Saving Private Ryan and The Day After Tomorrow, continues his winning streak on the small-screen by signing a deal with ABC Studios.

Disney Jumps on Jonas Bros. Bandwagon
Speaking of the small-screen, the Disney Channel has set its sights on crowning another set of tween royalty by inking the Jonas Brothers, reports THR. The trio, Kevin, Joe and Nick, will star in the spy comedy series J.O.N.A.S. and the telefilm Camp Rock.
