Another Downton Abbey resident departs the manor, though not with the Grim Reaper this time.

This one's gonna hurt. Siobhan Finneran has reportedly ended her scheming ways as Downton Abbey's resident mischief-maker, O'Brien. Thankfully, O'Brien's fate will be less... well, final than Downton's other two recent departures, so our fingers are crossed that she'll stop by the manor at some point to make everyone's lives a little more interesting.

Fall pilots are continuing to staff up, with Audra McDonald joining the CBS legal drama, Ordained. Meanwhile, Cult actress Marie Avgeropoulos leaves one sure-to-be cancelled CW show for another probably-will-be-cancelled CW show, The Hundred and Sophia Bush and Rebecca De Mornay are now part of NBC's modern-day Hatfields & McCoys-inspired series.

Taylor Kitsch is the latest addition to Ryan Murphy's made-for-HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's groundbreaking AIDS-related play, The Normal Heart. He joins a cast that already includes Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts. We imagine Cory Monteith probably lobbied hard for the part, but even Murphy realized that'd be a horrible idea.

Comedian Colin Mochrie Tweet-broke the news that Whose Line Is It Anyway will be coming back to the American airwaves, with Aisha Tyler stepping in for original host, Drew Carey. Expect the first improv game they play to be "Is Anyone Watching This"?
