Pre-credit sequence. The division of tribes has been made by the quality the players most rely upon in life, whatever that means. The Brains Tribe has an average Iq of 130 which is, honestly, not all that impressive. I mean, they're smart, but they're not Geena Davis smart. Spencer tied for first in the World Open Chess Championship and says he's both diabolical and a genius. If you say so! David is the President of the Marlins, which means that if there's a challenge that requires salary dumping, he's going to be hard to top. Kass is a lawyer who boasts about being undefeated, which is the kind of thing John Grisham characters boast about, that and smart older secretaries who have forgotten more law than most of us will ever know. On to the Beauty Tribe, whose beauty can't be measured numerically. But Morgan was an NFL cheerleader and she's »

Bronx Bombers has just announced a closing date of March 2, proving yet again that sports fans and Broadway do not make good bedfellows. There’s already a whisper in the air that the soon-to-be-vacant Circle in the Square might see Audra McDonald in a production of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill a staple of regional theaters about Billie Holiday (not to be confused with last fall’s Off Broadway show Lady Day). That would complicate the Tony race for Best Actress in a Musical, which is already shaping up as a showdown between Sutton Foster (Violet), Idina Menzel »

Rob Riggle has joined the cast of The Pro. The NBC comedy pilot stars Rob Lowe as a fallen tennis doubles champion who reunites with his former partner (Riggle) after hitting hard times. I’m watching this one since it comes from out Emmy-winner Todd Holland as a director.
CNN is cutting back on Anderson Cooper. The news channel has pulled from the schedule AC360 Later a “more relaxed” companion series for Cooper’s regular news hour. If you’re not familiar with AC360 Later, that might be because it was infrequently scheduled and would sometimes disappear from the schedule for weeks. Did anyone catch it? Will you miss it?
Vulture talked with Sarah Paulson about the upcoming season of American Horror Story. (Yeah, we’re already talking about next season. Deal with it.) When asked if she’s preparing for her new role the same way Jessica Lange »

Exclusive: Entourage alumna Debi Mazar has been cast in Younger, TV Land‘s single-camera comedy pilot written and executive produced by Sex And The City creator Darren Star. Additionally, Mazar is the latest key Entourage player to join Doug Ellin’s upcoming movie, signing on to reprise her role as snappy uber-publicist Shauna.

In her real life, she's a suburban mom, though she needs a change after her husband leaves her and her only child heads off to college. Duff's character -- oblivious to the fact Liza is a decade older -- takes a liking to the firm newbie and "makes a concerted effort to integrate her into her social life. »

Talking to the Television Critics Association, the team behind The Americans promised the second season begins with a threeway sex scene between Elizabeth, Phillip and… someone to be revealed later.
FX announced that the next season of Justified, will be the final season. On one hand, I have to applaud a show for knowing when to go out on a high note (and it’s getting harder to understand what holds Raylan in Harlan). On the other, it’s tough to say goodbye, especially for a show that puts Timothy Olyphant on my TV screen.
That crow looks even more ominous now.

TVLand had already scooped up the illimitable Sutton Foster to star in Younger, a comedy from Satc's Darren Star about Liza, a 40-something single mom who reinvents herself as a 29-year-old at work. Now Hilary Duff has joined the cast as Kelsey, a 20-something friend of Liza unaware of their age difference, and who, if she learned the truth, would surely recoil from Liza as Nosferatu would from the burning light of day. »
