Today's TWoP News: August 31, 2010

Big doings in TV land! Not the network, but the greater world in which TV is an all-encompassing concern. Show-castings, guest-starrings, show-namings, show-leavings and plot-spoilings! (Easily avoidable ones.)

The Dancing with the Stars cast has been confirmed, and it is pretty damn spectacular. Basically, everyone who was rumored? They're all in. Except wrestler Chris Jericho. He turned it down.

Bravo has announced a new Real Housewives show, this one set in Beverly Hills and starring Kelsey Grammer's ex, a Disney child star who's also Paris Hilton's aunt, and a woman with the last name "Vanderpump." Suddenly, Betthenny Frankel leaving the New York franchise doesn't make us so sad anymore.

In the wake of a limiting warning from the Conan the Barbarian people, Conan O'Brien will announce the name of his new show tomorrow. He probably can't use The Savage Sword of Conan, either, huh?

In awesome news, Eddie Izzard is joining The United States of Tara for a season, while on the same network, Joan Cusack will join William H. Macy's Shameless. Speaking of shameless, comic book legend Stan Lee will guest-star on Nikita for literally no reason I can see, aside from base pandering and blatant self-promotion. Which I suppose are reasons.

SPOILER ALERT! Do not toggle over these links unless you want to know who may come back to Mad Men and who's getting married on Grey's Anatomy. Both are squee-worthy, depending on your tastes.
