Kristen Bell commands you to watch her new Showtime series, House of Lies!
In case you had a sleepless night from the news of Tina Fey's pregnancy yesterday, know it will not impact Liz Lemon on 30 Rock. The remainder of the season has already been filmed, so Fey will not be showing any belly on her show. Oh, if only Liz would have a baby with Carol Burnett... then they could name it Vicki Lawrence.
Katherine Heigl will make a comeback to television! This should be quite the spectacle, since the Emmy winner hasn't been on television since her last stint on Grey's Anatomy. Heigl will star in and produce HBO's original movie The Knitting Circle, based on Ann Hood's novel. Heigl's unique ability to sob on cue from Grey's Anatomy will come in handy here, as she will be playing a grief-stricken mother coming to terms with the passing of her daughter. This can go either way: epic win or epic fail.
Lord of the Rings fan-favorite Sean Bean has been cast in ABC's upcoming series Missing led by Ashley Judd. Bean will play Judd's husband. The series will follow Ashley Judd's character as she takes it upon herself to track down her missing son in Europe. More casting news includes James Pumphrey joining NBC's untitled comedy currently starring Christina Applegate. Cougar Town's Collette Wolfe will lead NBC's newest comedy pilot, Lovelives, replacing previously announced Amanda Loncar.
Showtime is picking up some of Hollywood's favorite ladies. Kristen Bell breaks into Showtime with her newest comedy, House of Lies co-starring Don Cheadle, and Claire Danes's drama Homeland has been greenlit for 12 episodes. With Weeds jumping the shark as much as it does these days, now we have something to look forward!
Rough waters ahead for Bravo. Things aren't looking for good after the cancellation of The Real Housewives of D.C.. With Andy Cohen confirming that The Real Housewives of Miami is the last pit stop for this money-making train, will the franchise last much longer? Probably, but at least Bravo's learned that not every city is ripe for the Housewives drama.
While the Housewives lose D.C., Jersey Shore is set to go for a fourth season, with a full cast. Will Sammi and Ronnie get back together? Will Mike get more play? Will Snooki's "Cousin It" hair-DON'T see an end? We'll see. Not only will Jersey Shore make a return, but The Ricky Gervais Show has been renewed by HBO for a third season.
What could be better than a new season of Jersey Shore? The Hulk coaching micro wrestling, of course! TruTV's newest reality show, Micro Wrestling, will explore "the world of wrestling on the scale of little people" with the Hulk by their side. If there was ever a doubt that reality TV is our generation's version of the Circus, this would be proof enough.
Joining My So Called Life in rerun heaven will be CBS' How I Met Your Mother, but on another channel. FX will now share rights with Lifetime in a nonexclusive deal to air reruns of HIMYM. Like the Energizer Bunny, this is the show that just keeps on going and going and going and going...
