In case you needed a reason to cry this morning, check out this story from the Beekman website about a gay 12-year-old boy, Colin, whose mom wrote to Josh and Brent to tell them how inspiring it was for Colin to watch them compete on The Amazing Race every week.

TV on Tap: "The L.A. Complex" Gets the Axe, J.K. Rowling's "Casual Vacancy" Coming to the Small Screen and Howard Stern Will Stay with "America's Got Talent"

It's the last Christmas before breaking out the "Baby's First Christmas" ornament on The New Normal.


Canadian channel MuchMusic (or is it just Much now?) has decided to pass on a third season of the critically-acclaimed L.A. Complex.

As much as I'm saddened by this news, at least The L.A. Complex' last episode would make for a solid closing chapter.

Deadline breaks the word on a couple of amazing bits of recurring casting — S. Epatha Merkerson has joined Deception (that's NBC's upcoming soap where rich people suffer for ignoring the help) while Jere Burns will play a mysterious character on Bates Motel.
