Today's TWoP News: August 17, 2010

A ratings-machine Real Housewives series may lack a certain criminal factor next season, as the devious Danielle Staub may not be back to wreak havoc on New Jersey (well, at least not on-air). But there's better news for people with a grasp on reality in today's news...

Real Housewives of New Jersey instigator Danielle Staub has supposedly not been asked to return for Season 3 of the Bravo reality series. If this turns out to be true, I'm sure the ones most upset by this news are her convenient and constantly-changing group of "best friends" that she casts for every episode. We'll just be grateful if we don't have to see any more strip teases thong flashing deformed boobs unreasonable defense precautions flaunting of ex-cons ANYTHING from her.

HBO brings The Life and Times of Tim back to life for a third season after cancelling the series earlier this year. Along with promising only one more shortened season of their once-entertaining-but-now-just-annoying series Entourage and another Ricky Gervais comedy special (not to mention a documentary about Jersey's real prize, Bruce Springsteen), HBO is making better life decisions than Vincent Chase.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is going to Washington, D.C. for Congressional midterm elections, which as usual, they'll make sound less boring with their title "When Grizzlies Attack: The Daily Show Midterm Teapartyganza." Looking forward to some hilariously awkward encounters between Daily Show correspondents and ill-advised D.C. politicians.

In addition to his guest role on Emmy-nominated The Good Wife, Michael Ealy has been cast as one of the leads on USA's Common Law, a new "buddy police dramedy." Because the world really needs another one of those.

In other casting news, Mental's Chris Vance will appear on Dexter next season as a meticulous aide to a well-known businessman. See where being a psychiatric doctor on a failed Fox series gets you in TV life?

Lovable Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn is set to play himself in an episode of Gossip Girl in the upcoming season. I hope this means he'll give a much-needed fashion consultation to Jenny Humphrey and her tragic wardrobe.
