Charlie Sheen is not making idle threats, y'all.

As promised, Charlie Sheen has followed through on his erratic threats and filed a $100 million lawsuit (plus punitives) against CBS for the eight canceled Two and a Half Men episodes this season. The suit is also apparently on behalf of the crew, which is a suspiciously lucid PR move for someone so allegedly cuh-raaaaazy. Just saying.

Michael Scott's final episode will air on April 28, the first night of May sweeps. Also, Will Ferrell is guest starring. It's... kind of a big deal.

This fall, TeenNick will begin airing all their '90s greatest hits in a new midnight to two A.M. slot. They are as follows: Clarissa Explains It All, All That, Pete & Pete, Kenan & Kel and The Amanda Show. If you get your nostalgia all over this post you're going to have to clean it up yourself.

Julianne Moore will play Sarah Palin in an HBO movie about the 2008 elections. You're never going to believe this, but the film will portray Palin as an "unstable ignoramus." Ladies and germs, I do believe we've found next awards season's Temple Grandin.

And now, for today's pilot casting news! Jordana Spiro will play an NYC party girl who is sought out by the 18-year-old she gave up for adoption as a teen in ABC's Lost & Found (a sitcom version of Life Unexpected? Oh, here go hell come); Michael Chiklis will star in Vince Uncensored for CBS, a sitcom about a man who decides to be more honest in his life (bye, No Ordinary Family!); Jennifer Morrison will star in ABC's Once Upon a Time, that dreadful sounding fairy-tales-are-real garbage; and Terry O'Quinn and Donal Logue will square off on Marc Cherry's Hallelujah on ABC, which is sounding more and more watchable every day. Yay for pilots! They sound so exciting until they don't get picked up, or they end up on the air and turn out to be The Cape.
