Guess who's coming to the Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D.

Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D. series has recruited its second team member. Ming-Na is onboard to play Agent Melinda May, a pilot and weapons guru who fights evil alongside the no-longer-dead Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg). Okay... so Joss is just making Amy Acker and Enver Gjokaj sweat a little bit before hiring them, right?

NBC has ordered five more scripts for Dick Wolf's Chicago Fire, which has somehow scored an uptick in ratings despite being a total bore. Maybe everyone watching it is drunk enough to confuse Jesse Spencer for a younger, buffer Denis Leary.

Chazz Palminteri will appear on an upcoming episode of Blue Bloods as New York's top mob lawyer. And that's the last time we'll have to worry about mentioning Blue Bloods for the next six months.

The ABC Family pilot Socio, about a 17-year-old who returns to his hometown after spending five years upriver for murdering his aunt has added Kathy Najimy and Grey Damon to its ensemble. Najimy is set to play a psychology teacher and Damon is onboard as the boyfriend of the girl the anti-hero left behind.

USA Network has ordered a reality series entitled Partners in Crime that chronicles the legal exploits of two D.A.'s. The channel has also given the greenlight to All In, in which sports handicapper (you mean, that's an actual job?) Brandon Lang helps families try to win big through gambling. And then he presumably helps them find local chapters of Gamblers Anonymous after the episode is over.

Finally, here's a suitably cryptic photo from Mad Men's upcoming sixth season, one that features a shirtless Jon Hamm and a bikini-clad Jessica Paré. In other words, it's got something for everyone.
