Good thing we finally found out who killed Rosie Larsen.

AMC has cancelled The Killing, announcing that it will not return for a third season, though Fox Television Studios plans to shop the drama to other networks.

The cast of Dancing With the Stars: All Stars was announced, with past contestants including Pamela Anderson, Joey Fatone, Bristol Palin, Kirstie Alley and more returning. It's about time they did an All-Star edition; most of the previous "stars" went back to being has-beens pretty quickly.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong will be a mentor on Christina Aguilera's team this season on The Voice. Somehow, I think The X Factor will still have a more dramatic season.

Apparently the loss of The Killing is making room for a new scripted series on AMC, Area 51. The network just closed the deal, and conspiracy theorists everywhere screamed with glee.

The CW is considering turning the Japanese Hunger Games-ish film Battle Royale into a television show. That should fit right in with 90210.

Comedy Central ordered a pilot of D-Raw, a sketch comedy show starring comedian Deshawn Raw that will be produced by Chris Rock. Can someone from Comedy Central please just promise that we'll get to see Chris Rock in front of the camera too?

Eric Dane, better known as McSteamy, is leaving Grey's Anatomy, but not until after a few episodes into the upcoming ninth season. Hopefully by then they can find another Mc(attractive adjective) to replace him with.

In casting news, Laurence Fishburne of CSI has joined NBC's Hannibal as the head of the FBI's Behavioral Sciences Unit. Also, Once Upon A Time has booked yet another fairytale character, with Julian Morris of Pretty Little Liars set to play Prince Phillip. Maybe we should just start posting a daily Once Upon A Time news roundup.
