Today's TWoP News: April 13, 2011

As we all know the place for our most important political officials is on daytime television.

Because Ellen is apparently only for Green Partiers and only a libertarian would be caught on Maury, Obama only had one choice for a daytime talk show appearence: Oprah. The President will be on the May 2 episode of the show with his wife to chat about politics or book clubs or something.

Adding to its already impress list of politically incorrect shows, TLC has just acquired the rights to show the UK's Big Fat Gypsy Weddings. After running the UK version, TLC is also looking to make an American version of the show exploring the social dynamics of the US hobo population. Finally, having exploited all the people with blue collar jobs, TV has moved on to people who never had jobs to begin with.

It looks like A.J. Cook might just return to Criminal Minds next season. So all of you JJ lovers out there can finally sleep well knowing that your small but persistent cries for her to come back were probably actually supported by the focus groups CBS ran after she left.

Jessica Lange has been cast in Ryan Murphy's FX show American Horror Story. With Connie Britton already cast, this show might have the most talented set of female leads in cable history. Clearly this show isn't going to last more than one episode on FX.

ABC Family just picked up a show called Jane By Design for next season. The plot is about a teenager in the fashion industry, but more importantly Jane's boss will be played by Andie MacDowell! This means we don't have to go see the silly Footloose remake to see her in anything new this year!

It's only sort of worth mentioning, but Charlie Sheen thinks that he has an "85% chance" of getting his job back on Two and a Half Men. While it might seem that he's an even bigger and worse liar than Alec Baldwin, really it sounds like he's just desperate.
