Everybody's "favorite" TV doc is in high demand!

And it's so much so that he has reportedly put Celebrity Rehab on hiatus. Dr. Drew is said to be too busy with other TV jobs to do another season at the moment, so he's taking a break from the VH1 reality show. (Or Bai Ling trying to jump off of a roof was just the straw that broke the camel's back.)

Some sad news -- Sherwood Schwartz, creator of two of TV's most famous sitcoms -- Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch -- passed away this morning. He was 94 years old.

The first promo for TNT's Dallas was released last night, and it was dramatic.

A&E will premiere Thom Beers' American Hoggers, about a real-life Texas hog-hunting family, August 16 at 10 PM. Apparently they hunt those abnormally large feral hogs, the ones that look like the Rodents of Unusual Size from The Princess Bride. So good for you, I guess, if you can stomach watching this kind of thing.

Casting news: Michelle Krusiec of Dirty Sexy Money and Secret Life of the American Teenager has landed a recurring role on Fringe... Dylan Baker, who recently appeared on Burn Notice, will guest star on White Collar... Juliette Lewis and Alphas' Callum Keith Rennie have both joined the cast of The Firm... Supernatural's Alona Tal has joined the FX Powers pilot... True Blood's Mariana Klaveno has been tapped to play a recurring role on Dexter... and Harry's Law has promoted Christopher McDonald to series regular.

Four new shows have been added to the LOGO network line-up, including a reality series that follows Lisa Lampanelli and her husband. Because we all desperately wanted a Lisa Lampanelli reality show!

Tori Spelling and Jenny McCarthy will both serve as advisers on the upcoming season of Millionaire Matchmaker. Hopefully they'll be more exciting advisers than Patti's current goth couple employees?

Parks & Recreation is giving Ron Swanson's facial hair "its own arc." Thank. God.

Fuel TV has ordered the series Master Debaters with Jay Mohr, which will feature a panel of celebrities talking about the latest entertainment and sports news. Joining Mohr every week will be ex-baseball player Eric Byrnes and comic Na'im Lynn. This is exciting! Mohr is always fantastic on Watch What Happens Live, and I've written before about how much I love his impressions. I never thought I'd say this, but here's hoping Tracy Morgan keeps screwing up so Mohr can put that impression to good use come fall.
