John Barrowman heads to The CW, Hilary Duff is coming to your television, and Kate Hudson joins Glee, most likely to make Rachel cry. We're all very excited.

Captain Jack Harkness is traveling all the way to The CW. John Barrowman will join the cast of The CW's superhero-y Arrow as a mysterious, wealthy man. With those credentials he'll either be a convenient ally or a super villain. Only time will tell...

Abby Elliot, one of SNL's youngest-ever cast members will not return to the show for the new season. Unless she's planning to launch The Abby Elliot Show, we're thinking this was a really bad career move.

It's official -- Kate Hudson will guest star on Glee this fall. She'll be playing a NYADA instructor who challenges Rachel and has been described as the "anti-Will Schuester," which probably means she'll prepare in advance for show choir competitions, can speak Spanish, and doesn't sleep with half of her co-workers.

Despite his desire to be on every reality TV program out there, Ryan Lochte's first post Olympic TV debut won't be unscripted. Lochte will guest star on the new season of 90210 as a patron of the resort where Naomi and her boyfriend Max are staying.

Rachel Dratch will guest star on Up All Night as a fan of her SNL co-star Maya Rudolph's character Ava. We're already picturing Dratch as an obsessed fan girl, and it is delightful.

Tommy Dewey will join The Mindy Project as an OB/GYN who romances Mindy. Let's hope that this show lasts longer than Dewey's last show, the short-lived WB soap The Mountain.

CSI: Miami's Emily Procter will guest star on White Collar as a Special Agent who attempts to keep Peter and Neal in line.

Hilary Duff is headed to TV, and thankfully it's not to reprise her role on Gossip Girl. Duff has signed a deal with 20th Century Fox, which will have the network develop a half-hour comedy vehicle for the actress. Let's cross our fingers and hope it's not anything like that other former teen actress's show Melissa & Joey.

Michael J. Fox will create a single camera comedy project that will be developed by Sony Pictures Television for 2013. No word yet on which networks will get the show on their lineup, but we're thinking this one might be fought harder for than Hilary Duff's (sorry, Hil).

The creators of Big Love are adapting the British series Getting On. The comedy takes place in a women's geriatric wing and will show the ups and downs that the medical professionals face when taking care of elderly patients.

Sadly, Ron Palillo of Welcome Back Kotter died this week at age 63. Our thoughts go out to his family.
