At long last, the Kepner family tree is complete. Or at least it will be this fall when Grey’s Anatomy formally introduces April’s mother.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Connie Ray (The Big C, The Torkelsons) has been cast as the Kepner clan’s matriarch, Karen. This is technically a recast, since the character appeared briefly (sans dialogue) at April’s wedding to Jackson last season played by a different actress (the first person to ID said mystery actress in the comments wins a 20% off coupon to Bed Bath & Beyond).

Kyle Buchanan offers Tina Fey five tips on becoming a movie star. Now that her Emmy-winning comedy series "30 Rock" is gone, he says the movies need her "more than she needs the movies," but she has not been provided with good projects yet. The recent release of "This Is Where I Leave You" along with "Muppets Most Wanted" and "Admission" have not been worthy. His suggestions include that she write her own projects, rewrite other projects, appeal to her base (young women and gay men), work with better directors, and finally make that movie with Meryl Streep she has been promising. Vulture -Break- Emmy-nominated actress Sarah Paulson calls her new double role as conjoined twins her "craziest" yet.

Ahead of the fourth season premiere next month, FX has unveiled a batch of new American Horror Story: Freak Show images. Ryan Murphy’s anthology series returns with a new setting, hook, and cast of characters, this time focusing on the carnies of a traveling freak show in 1952 Florida. These images give us a close-up look at Kathy Bates as the Bearded Lady, Michael Chiklis as the Strong Man, and plenty more additions to the ensemble. This anthology format has been a suitable outlet for Murphy, who tends to expend all of his creative energy in a short amount of time. Even so, portions of Ahs seasons in the past have felt too crowded and overloaded at times. My hope is that the Freak Show story will be a bit more streamlined this year, but regardless, seeing a bearded Kathy Bates and a two-headed Sarah Paulson should be quite entertaining. »

FX entered this summer with more programming inventory than it's ever had in a compressed period: "The Strain" on Sundays (the first time FX has had to put one of its dramas there), "Partners" on Mondays, "Tyrant" on Tuesdays, "The Bridge" on Wednesdays and "Married" and "You're the Worst" on Thursdays. Though "The Strain" has been a success and got renewed weeks ago, it's been a rough go for almost everything else. "Partners" failed to get the necessary ratings to trigger an automatic pick up of additional episodes, and FX boss John Landgraf has suggested that he's getting out of the 10/90 business that led to shows like that, "Anger Management" and "Saint George" airing on his network. "The Bridge" has been much improved in season 2, but the ratings are so low that I'm bracing myself for the series to end in two weeks. "You're the Worst" has turned out to »
