Get ready to spend a whole lot of time with Nancy Grace.

The Dancing with the Stars Season 13 Cast has been revealed. This year, we have the pleasure of spending time with Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Chaz Bono, Ricki Lake, Carson Kressley, David Arquette, Chynna Phillips, Elisabetta Canalis, Hope Solo, Ron Artest, Rob Kardashian and J.R. Martinez. Here's our predictions for the cast. Quick: How many of those people do you know without having to look up? If you said all 12: You're lying.

AMC is working on Watch What Happens Live-type talk show series, and it's hired the same production company behind the Bravo hit to make it. Apparently a pilot has been filmed and everything, and the pilot's host is Chris Hardwick. We'd prefer Jon Hamm, but he'll do.

Dreading the return of Two and a Half Men? Here's something to brighten your day: Judy Greer has signed on to play Ashton Kutcher's character's ex -- the good part of that of course being that Greer, as much as we like her, is a notorious showkiller.

In network pilot news, Chris Case and Joey Gutierrez are writing a comedy for CBS about a recently separated (and probably sexist and old-fashioned) father of two who attempts to move on with his life. CBS has also bought comedy script Malled, penned by Bill Kunstler (Accidentally On Purpose). about a down-on-her-luck journalist who takes a retail job at a mall.

Over at ABC, Detroit 1-8-7 writer Jason Richman has sold Wicked Good a project about family of witches living in the suburbs of Orange County, and Battlestar Galatica developer/executive producer Ron Moore and Caprica writer Matt Roberts have just sold the Western pitch Hangtown.

Showtime is currently working with Steven Spielberg and Stephen King to develop a drama series based on King's Under The Dome, the very story that completely didn't work for The Simpsons Movie, but what are you gonna do?
