Big News!

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

Hot in Cleveland
has a bunch of new guest stars coming up, including Susan Lucci, Peri Gilpin, Mary Tyler Moore, and Jimmy Kimmel. Similarly, Wendie Malick will appear in an episode of All My Children as a cross-promotion.

The History Channel was supposed to air the new eight-part miniseries The Kennedys this spring, but the channel decided it's not historically accurate enough for them. It will still air in Canada, and there's a chance that a different cable channel may pick it up for the US as well.

Mike Tyson has a new show coming to Animal Planet, a six-part documentary called, Taking on Tyson, which will focus on him training pigeons. No lie. It begins March 6th.

Katy Perry is going to play Jennifer Morrison's cousin on How I Met Your Mother, and yet another potential love interest. (This was all over the place, so no single source, LoL!)

TLC's Extreme Couponing did well in its first airing, and a 12-episode series has been ordered.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager comes back on Monday, March 28th at 8pm. It's also been renewed for Season 4 to show in the summer.

Raising Hope got renewed for a second season.

Terra Nova will preview May 23rd and 24th, 9-10pm ET each night. The FOX show will officially premiere in the fall.

Lots is going on with the cast of Teen Mom 2. Or, at least one girl in particular. Jenelle Evans signed the custody of her baby over to her mother in June, and goes to court over a breaking and entering AND marijuana possession charge before the show even premieres.

ABC and Salma Hayek are teaming up to do a miniseries of the Wicked book, not the Wicked musical.

The Big Bang Theory got a three-year renewal.

Another Wipeout-type game is in the works, this time featuring Pac-Man, and it is to be "the world's biggest game of tag on television."

Sarah Michelle Geller will be back on television next season in the CBS drama Ringer.

Regis Philbin has announced that this is his final year on Live with Regis & Kelly. He's been on that show longer than I've been alive, LoL. But... the man is about to turn 80, after all!
