Caleb McGillvary, also known as Kai, the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker of “Smash, smash, SUH-MASH!” fame, was arrested in Philadelphia on a New Jersey warrant in a slaying case, authorities said. McGillvary, 24, was arrested without incident at a Greyhound Bus stop about 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Authorities in Union County, New Jersey, named the animated, couch-crashing drifter as a suspect in the death of New Jersey attorney Joseph Galfy. Galfy was found dead Monday inside his home on Starlite Drive when officers made a welfare check, Union County prosecutors spokesman John Holl said.

Don't call it a trend just yet, but it seems the movie industry is taking a liking to Instagram's new video feature. Last month, Facebook introduced 15-second video recording for Instagram as a response to rival Twitter's Vine service, which allows videos of up to six seconds. There may only be a nine-second difference, but those few extra moments are starting to make movie magic. This week, the Ashton Kutcher-led Steve Jobs biopic, titled "Jobs," was the first to roll out a movie trailer using the Instagram tool.

Oprah Winfrey's cable network is in trouble, entertainment business reporter Joe Flint says in this video. Created 15 months ago in partnership with cable television giant Discovery Communications, the Oprah Winfrey Network was expected to get off to a good start by tapping the 6 million fans who were watching Winfrey's talk show in syndication. Instead, OWN is averaging just 259,000 viewers in prime time, according to Nielsen. Winfrey said on "CBS This Morning" that the channel has been much harder to get off the ground than she expected, reporter Meg James writes today on our sister blog, Company Town.
