If Hot in Cleveland’s fifth season didn’t already have your attention — what with Melanie’s pregnancy and all — the show has enlisted a rather attractive guest star to sweeten the deal. EW has learned exclusively that Jason Priestley is joining the show as Corey Chambers, a handsome movie star Melanie had a crush on back in high school. (Hmm, a high school heartthrob? Sounds a lot like Priestley’s Beverly Hills, 90210 past.)
And Chambers might turn into more than just a thing of the past when Victoria asks for her friends’ help with increasing her chances in the Oscar race. »

Last week, Idw released a new X-Files comic, “X-Files Season 10.” Like the Buffy series from Dark Horse, as well as continuations of Jericho, Smallville, Charmed and Farscape, comics are increasingly becoming home to cancelled television shows. Most of these shows have a cult following, so continued runs in comic form suits them well. I asked the comics team at Sound on Sight to think about what cancelled TV shows they would most like to see completed via comics. Here’s what we came up with…

When the cancellation of Daniel Knauf’s Carnivale was announced, I can’t say that I was completely surprised. I can tell you though; I was pissed! HBO’s Carnivale was one of the most bizarre, subtext-filled supernatural dramas ever on television. Twin Peaks was and is my favorite television series of all time. That series ended after two seasons (like »

Chicago – Just as there are tiers of animation in the United States, there are varying degrees of quality in our imported product as well. In the States, we know not everything can be Pixar. I suppose the French equivalent is not everything can be “The Illusionist” or “Triplets of Belleville”. And so we shouldn’t approach the recently imported 3D family film, “A Monster in Paris” with that standard of movie magic. The script for this fantasy is a bit thin and the visuals can be disappointing but it has a pleasant spirit, bouncy energy, and air of romance that allow it to work well for a rental. And it’s not weighed down with the gross-out jokes and pop culture references that often sink Hollywood 3D animated productions.

In a surprising development, Lifetime has cancelled Drop Dead Diva. Deadline speculates, that the decision might have come out of a desire to pursue more "edgy" fare at Lifetime — you know, like The Client List. Wait, does "edgy" mean getting hot male guest-stars undressed under flimsy excuses? That's a pretty compelling argument for Lifetime getting more "edgy." Too bad we won't find out where Drop Dead Diva would go from where it left off.
Mad Men and Desperate Housewives alum Mark Moses will appear on Blue Bloods, TV Guide reports. Moses will play a bigoted talk radio host who challenges the police's commitment to protecting the first amendment. »

Fox has officially passed on Greg Berlanti's pilot Guilty, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The one-hour drama project, initially developed for series consideration for the 2012-13 season before being mulled for a possible fall 2013 addition, centered on a smart, ethically questionable defense attorney who used his unique methods to solve cases he's been banned from handling after being stripped of his law license. Cuba Gooding Jr., Jay Harrington, Eva Amurri Martino and Julian Morris starred in the project from Warner Bros. TV, Bonanza Productions, Berlanti Productions and Wonderland Sound and Vision. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim penned the

Cuba Gooding Jr. is back on the casting market just in time for pilot season. Exactly a year after Fox picked up legal drama Guilty to pilot, the network has officially passed on the project. Guilty was a strong contenter for a series pickup last season, with star Gooding Jr. testing very high. After missing the cut in May, Fox kept Guilty in consideration, and the studio behind it, Warner Bros. TV, in June extended the options on actors Gooding Jr., Jay Harrington, Eva Amurri Martino and Julian Morris. In an unusual twist, Fox eyed Guilty not for midseason but fall 2013. Guilty, from Wbtv, Berlanti Prods. and Wonderland Sound and Vision, centered on a brilliant, morally questionable defense attorney (Gooding Jr.) who, after being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his legal license, uses his unorthodox methods to solve the cases he’s been prohibited from handling and to »
