The Golden Globes might get a whole lot more offensive... again.

After Ricky Gervais insulted virtually every celebrity in attendance and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at this year's awards and then talked about it nonstop afterwards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did the logical thing and asked him back. Although Gervais isn't sure if he's going to return, one thing's for sure: The shock value is over, and no one cares as much about this as Gervais does.

Elizabeth Moss will be taking a break from the '60s to star in the BBC Two miniseries Top of the Lake. The six-hour series is about a detective (Moss) who investigates the disappearance of a local drug lord's 12-year-old pregnant daughter. Ooh, is Pete Campbell the father?

In awesome news of the day, Ana Gasteyer is now a series regular on Surbugatory.

Mary Steenburgen is guest starring on 30 Rock as Charlotte, Avery's WASP mother who is guaranteed to drive everyone crazy. If you can't wait until midseason to see her, Steenburgen's four-episode arc on Bored to Death opposite her husband, Ted Danson, begins Monday.

Andrew Dice Clay is guest starring on Raising Hope as himself. Glad Jimmy will get some schoolin', but do we really need more ADC in our lives?

British actress Lucy Griffiths will play Eric's sister Nora on the upcoming season of True Blood. Nora, like Eric, is an ancient vampire who works as a double agent in the Vampire Authority. Wonder how that'll play out between the show's other 34,023,740 characters.

HBO's adaptation of The Corrections is officially official. Although two Oscar winners were already cast as the leads, the adaptation is only just now moving into production. About time, HBO!

Shocker: Fox canceled the sketch comedy show In the Flow with Affion Crockett, which was executive produced by Jaime Foxx and had a low-rated summer run.

The Bachelor will be returning January 2, 2012, with moptop Ben Flajnik. Get your tears ready!
