Next time you shoot a man with a paintball gun, Freckles, you better make sure they got paint on them.

We knew that the season finale of Community would see a return of the "Modern Warfare" paintball battle, but now we know that it'll be a Sergio Leone Western homage, with Josh Holloway playing the Man With No Name. I can't wait to see the Mexican standoffs that will surely result.

Spike has picked up the Shear Genius of tattoo artistry (but much more permanent), Inkmasters. Whoever volunteers to be tattooed on this show deserves what they get.

As you mourn the loss of your favorite soon-to-be-cancelled TV show, sleep warm and happy in the knowledge that Last Call With Carson Daly has been renewed for an 11th season.

True to his name, Kevin Spacey is exploring the final frontier... of TV distribution! His show House of Cards will be the first original series streaming on Netflix. Oh, brave new world, that has such viewing options in it!

All of you who were looking forward to Real Housewives of Dallas, don't hold your martinis -- Real Housewives of Miami might be the last one. No, please, don't.

Rango director Gore Verbinski is taking another crack at television with a supernatural crime series for Starz called The Brink, about an art therapist and a clairvoyant accused serial killer. Here's hoping there's a character in it named "Gore Verbinski." Sounds like a really talkative serial killer, right?

Pilot casting news!
- Lauren Cohan, a.k.a. Rose, a.k.a. Bela Talbot, a.k.a. Vivian Volkoff, will play a lawyer in the in the lawyers-and-angels CW drama Heavenly. Jeez, being on The CW is like being a made man.
- Madeleine Stowe will play the matriarch of a powerful family in ABC's Hamptons drama Revenge. Stay alive, Madeleine! Audiences will find you!
- Robert Knepper will take 'em to Missouri in NBC's post-Civil War drama Reconstruction. Did they even have teabags back then?
- Frances Conroy will play Jenna Elfman's grandchild-raising mom in the ABC comedy Bad Mom. So she's the bad grand-mom?

In case the Welcome Back Kotter reunion wasn't enough to make you watch the TV Land Awards, the cast of Facts of Life will also reunite. Curse you, TV Land!
