Today's TWoP News: August 28, 2009

Today's TWoP news is brought to you by the letter S, for Showtime, which has decided to embrace the entertainment world's complete lack of creativity and originality and name shows exclusively using initials.

Laura Linney will be the star and executive producer of a new Showtime series called The C Word, a dark comedy about cancer. The title is a little too familiar, but we'll let it slide because it makes sense in context. And because Laura Linney is such a badass.

The roster of totally adorable and talented Idol guest judges (Hey, NPH!) just got a little bit longer as Kristin Chenoweth was added to the list for the Orlando auditions. Squeeee!

In other talent competition news, The Hoff is going to perform on the semifinal results show of America's Got Talent. If you don't understand how amazingly hilarious this is, just watch this little gem.

I don't know if any of us would have pegged Kim Kardashian as a behind-the-scenes kinda gal, but she seems to think she's found her calling with a new reality show that she's creating and executive producing. The series will follow her friends Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck of Command Public Relations, and will feature tons of celebrity cameos...including herself, of course.

We're typically pretty wary of actors (or reality stars, mostly) taking up the pen, but this one is so geeky and cute that it might just work. Mike McMillian (True Blood) is writing a comic book entitled Lucid, which he described as "James Bond meets Harry Potter."

Everyone has their reasons for watching Leverage, and next year fans will get the opportunity to find more, as TNT renewed the show for a third season.

Campbell Scott will be joining the cast of Damages as a series regular. No news yet on who his character is or what this means for his role on Royal Pains, but Boris's terminal illness could be an easy way to send him to that big German mafia hideout in the sky.
