"Siri -- confirm that I really do have the moves like Jagger."

Lorne Michael has booked Mick Jagger to do two jobs for the price of one on the season finale of Saturday Night Live. The Rolling Stones frontman is set to both host and be the musical guest on the May 19 episode, which may be the last we see of Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis around Studio 8H. If Samberg does depart, here's hoping he wrangles Jagger and Justin Timberlake into one more digital short. After all, Jagger's probably been pulling that "dick in a box" stunt since the '60s.

In news that is one-third not bad, The CW has renewed Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and 90210.

Ex-Lost actor William Mapother will soon be able to answer the question we all want to know: What is Burn Notice? Mapother is joining the USA series for a Season 6 guest spot as a mercenary team leader that tangles with Barry Burkowski. John C. McGinley will also be stopping by the show as a CIA training officer. If we don't get at least one Point Break reference during his appearance, we'll be disappointed.

Take that Reese Witherspoon! Jewel will play June Carter Cash in a forthcoming Lifetime biopic based on her son John's memoir. Considering how little Joaquin Phoenix has worked since that I'm Still Here fiasco, he's probably available to reprise his role has Johnny.

Fingers crossed this isn't a harbinger of things to come. Two of Community's showrunners, Neil Goldman and Garret Donovan, have left the show to develop other projects at 20th Century Fox TV. Great, just what Dan Harmon needs -- fewer layers of defense between him and Chevy Chase.

Finally, may we direct your eyeballs to this terrific Lego-ized version of the Game of Thrones theme song. Hey, how is the Lego Ned Stark like the real guy? They both keep losing their heads.
