Apparently craving a generous studio audience more than a good script, Lindsay Lohan has landed a guest role on CBS' "2 Broke Girls." CBS announced on Wednesday (March 5) that Lohan will be appearing on the Monday, April 14 episode of Monday 8:30 comedy. After playing herself on "Glee" and "Anger Management," as well as in "Scary Movie 5," Lohan at least theoretically has a character to play on "2 Broke Girls." CBS says that Lohan will be playing Claire Guinness, "a soon-to-be-bride who asks Max and Caroline to make her wedding cake." As Max and Caroline are about to discover, Claire is really indecisive. One thing Lohan can guarantee is that she'll be greeted with prolonged applause when she first appears on-screen. The "2 Broke Girls" audience has been giving Jennifer Coolidge the Fonz treatment for over a year, roaring at her every initial appearance as if Sophie Kachinsky's arrival offers hope of humor. »

On Monday's installment (8/7c, ABC Family), dance scenes fill every act as Daphne (Katie LeClerc) and Bay (Vanessa Marano) both wonder about their futures. From Lea Thompson's Broadway act and Gilles Marini and Marlee Matlin's Waltz to LeClerc's salsa dance with Rj Mitte and David Casteneda, almost every style is covered.
"[My] dance is especially fun because of the love triangle," LeClerc recently told us. "I'm a pretty good dancer, I learn choreography pretty easily, and I took tap in college. But Vanessa Marano is the most adorable thing in the world -- she has no rhythm!"

On Tuesday's (March. 3) episode of "Switched at Birth," everyone's strapping on their dancing shoes.
The ABC Family hit is taking another artistic risk on par with last season's all-sign language episode, though this time around, they're getting a little footloose and fancy free. In a special dance-themed episode, each act will feature dancing scenes, including one very sultry Viennese waltz between Melody (Marlee Matlin) and Angelo (Gilles Marini).
Zap2it had the opportunity with speak with Matlin (through e-mail) about the performance between the two "Dancing With the Stars" alums, previewed in the exclusive photos above and below, and what risks she'd like to see the daring show take next.
Zap2it: How excited were you and Gilles to have the opportunity to touch back on your "Dancing With the Stars" experience for the special dance-themed episode? Did either of you find you'd gotten a little rusty?
Matlin: In the »
Thanks to her sitcom's success, Beth Behrs hardly is broke.
She and Kat Dennings are two of television's most recognizable actresses as the stars of "2 Broke Girls," Mondays on CBS, to the degree they were enlisted as hosts of the network's telecast of the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards recently. (Their series had two nominations, after winning favorite new TV comedy honors its first year.)
In the show's third season, which has seen it return to its original slot after a move to a later time, the lively Behrs still feels good about the weekly misadventures of waitresses, roommates and cupcake-selling entrepreneurs Caroline and Max. "We got shifted around, but I think it's all working out from what I can tell," Behrs, aka "Caroline," tells Zap2it.
The biggest change? Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) are entering into their senior year at Carlton, which is undergoing some change of its own. After surviving the threat of closure thanks to the protest in Season 2, Carlton and its students are forced to face the reality of the slight victory and accept the plethora of new hearing students bused in after their under-performing schools were shut down. Things quickly escalate to "Dangerous Minds" territory when Daphne's English class erupts into a fight over reading aloud. It could veer into ridiculous and over-the-top territory, but it mostly worked in the premiere.
Carlton isn't the only place of change. There's a palpable shift in the Kennish-Vasquez home following Daphne getting caught blackmailing Senator Coto. John (D.W. Moffett »
Changes are ahead for Switched at Birth's Bay, who this season will deal with new schoolmates, a new art class, a new attitude and an unexpected ally.
Marching to the beat of her own drum since Season 1, Bay Kennish (Vanessa Marano) finally found her place after getting to know her birth parents Regina (Constance Marie) and Angelo (Gilles Marini), building a solid friendship with Daphne (Katie LeClerc) and leaving her privileged private school for Carlton School for the Deaf, which she fought to keep open. But when the third season premieres (Monday at 8/7c, ABC Family), Bay will feel somewhat lost again as she recovers from believing she was cheated on (a lie Blair Redford's Ty told her so she'd get over him while deployed in Afghanistan) and starts her senior year alongside some of Kansas City's toughest inner city kids.
