David Rossi: I never could do that.
Emily Prentiss: Do what?
David Rossi: Take a nap. Never felt natural.
Dr. Spencer Reid: I’m actually wide awake, but for future reference, polyphasic sleep is completely natural, quite common in the animal world, and highly beneficial

Starz's 'Black Sails' to End With Season 4
By Denise Petski

The end of the road for Black Sails is in sight. Starz announced Wednesday that the previously announced fourth season of the pirate drama Treasure Island prequel series will be its last. The drama will return with a ten-episode fourth and final season in 2017.

“It’s a rare privilege in television to be given the kind of creative freedom we’ve enjoyed on this show over the last four years,” co-creator Jonathan E. Steinberg said. “While it was a difficult decision for us to make this season our last, we simply couldn’t imagine anything beyond it that would make for a better ending to the story nor a more natural handoff to Treasure Island.”

“Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, along with their crew and the phenomenal cast, have delivered a spectacular take on the most legendary pirate story in literature, and this final season will bring us to the shores of Treasure Island as was always intended,” Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik said. “Black Sails has been a tremendous success; from the loyal fan following and strong viewership numbers to awards recognition and the skill of our world-class production in Cape Town, we could not be more proud of this very special series.”

Hamilton is invading Comedy Central’s Drunk History.

Creator Derek Waters revealed Thursday during the show’s Comic-Con panel that Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda is set to narrate the rivalry between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr during season four.

You’re the Worst’s Allan McLeod will also explain how the divided dispute on whether British actor William Macready (Jack McBrayer) or American actor Edwin Forrest (David Koechner) was the better thespian.

Other guests set for the 10-episode season include Billie Joe Armstrong, Steve Berg, Rachel Bilson, Michael Cera, Josh Charles, Kat Dennings, Ben Folds, Dave Grohl, Tony Hale, Ed Helms, Thomas Middleditch, Elizabeth Olsen, Aubrey Plaza, Ronda Rousey, Liev Schreiber, Alia Shawkat, Duncan Trussell and more.
