Ninth time's the charm!

Shortly after yesterday's announcement that Brian Grazer will be producing the Oscars, Billy Crystal announced he will replace Eddie Murphy as host via Twitter. After this many times as host, Billy, no one is going to forget your name.

Turns out we will find out who lives and who died in the season finale of Weeds after all. Showtime renewed it for an eighth season, with production beginning next year.

In the surprise news of the day, Howard Stern is in talks to replace Piers Morgan as a judge on America's Got Talent, which would earn him $15 million a year. Good luck with that one, Stern.

Dick Casablancas strikes again! Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars, Party Down) will guest star on an upcoming episode of Happy Endings as a love interest Penny "revamps" to make more interesting. At least he won't be a caterer anymore.

Are You There, Chelsea? will be host a That '70s Show reunion (minus Kelso, fortunately). Wilmer Valderrama will guest star as a baseball player that dates Chelsea, who is played by Laura Prepon. Hopefully he's gotten his hormones in control since the '70s.

Starz is developing Harem, a six-hour series about the rise and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Based on an idea by Gina Gershon, the show focuses on Roxelana, a slave girl whose marriage to Sultan Suleyman results in "The Reign of Women." Girl power!

Anderson Cooper is about to get some competition. Jeff Probst's syndicated talk show, Jeff Probst (they couldn't come up with a better title?) was picked up by NBC Stations for a fall 2012 launch. No need to worry about his hosting duties, Survivor fans -- there's no scheduling conflicts, surprisingly.

Teen Mom 2, MTV's second 16 and Pregnant spinoff, is returning for a second season on December 6, so grab some snacks and prepare to sit on your couch for the inevitable six-hour mama drama-filled marathon.
