Sara Gilbert will return to acting in the new Bad Teacher pilot for CBS. The comedy is based on the film starring Cameron Diaz but Ari Graynor will play the lead role (love her!!!) and Sara will play "Irene, a shy, introverted drama and English teacher who, when activated, can be a bit intense." If the show is picked up, she'll still host The Talk, too. Phew!

David Steinberg sits down with comedian Louis C.K. in the season two premiere of Showtime’s Inside Comedy (airing Monday, February 11 at 11 p.m.). During their wide-ranging interview, C.K. talks fame and fans, and he issues a warning: Do not ask him to pose for a picture with you. He won’t do it. He would rather have a lovely conversation with you instead, provided you weren’t a total jerk about not getting the photo. And he kind of revels in the way it pisses some people off. Watch: »

Good morning, Brewbies.
President Obama has issued an official message to the National Conference on Lgbt Equality, praising them for their history of grassroots political activism and encouraging them to continue to fight the good fight.
The White House also said on Friday that the issue of same-sex military benefits has the president's attention:
The president is absolutely focused on and aware of the need to further implement Dadt [repeal], and to ensure that proper benefits are provided … You know, for more details, I would point you to the Defense Department, but this is an issue the president is aware of and it has his attention.
And speaking of same-sex military spouses, Fort Bragg named lesbian military wife Ashley Broadway as the "spouse of the year." She's now in the running to be the Army's national spouse of the year.

Looks like we wont have to wait as long to see the return of Dexter! Showtime has announced that the series will return to TV earlier than normal. Season 8 will premiere on June 30th at 9pm, and will serve as a lead-in for the cable networks new crime drama Ray Donovan. It was previously a lead in to Homeland. I've also heard that Season 8 will in also be the last season of the show, which is sad, but we knew it would eventually have to come to an end.
The early return of the series has not affected production on Dexter. Showtime entertainment president David Nevins said, “There is no less production time, just a little less vacation time between the seasons.” He also said that the drama’s producers and cast had received enough lead time to adjust to the scheduling changes.
Here's a rundown of the rest of Showtimes 2013 schedule thanks to Deadline. »
