24 Is Low on Time

... 24's clock appears to be ticking away, with this season likely being its last. It's not exactly a surprise, as rumors that the show is concluding for good have been around for some time now. However, a film adaptation that would see Jack Bauer head over to Europe to kick some terrorist ass is still a possibility. [Variety]

... Those lovable guys and dolls from Jersey Shore won't be chilling in the Garden State next season. The second cycle of MTV's reality hit is destined for... Miami. And aside from the bikinis, I can't tell the difference between Miami and Jersey anyway. I'm not sure if that's more of an insult to Miami or New Jersey. But I assure you, it's definitely an insult to both. [Miami Herald]

... Actress Keri Russell, known for J.J. Abrams' spy drama sci-fi epic college drama Felicity, may be returning to television. She's in negotiations to star opposite Will Arnett in the comedy Wilde Kingdom. The show stars Arnett as a "Beverly Hills jackass who falls in love with a charitable tree-hugging woman (Russell)." Only on television! [THR]

... ABC is releasing its Lost Encyclopedia on August 24, which presumably will be filled with all sorts of knowledge related to the hit show. Important stuff like the dimensions of a Dharma jug of ranch dressing, where Charlie was seated on Oceanic 815, and lyrics to Jeronimo Jackson songs. Or you could just check out Lostpedia.com to get the same information. For free. [Amazon]

... My favorite funny lady, Judy Greer, might finally get a shot at her own show, as she's joined the Fox comedy pilot Tax Man. Greer's hilarious, it's as simple as that. I mean, she showed her boobs on Arrested Development and makes sex noises on Archer! Well, it's hilarious when she does it. [THR]

... Jerry O'Connell is actually choosing to star opposite Jim Belushi in the new CBS drama—I repeat, DRAMA—Defenders, about do-gooder lawyers in Las Vegas. This show is officially dead to me. [THR]

... Lie to Me is getting the afterthought treatment over at Fox, and will return this summer. It was initially slated to return this spring, like the rest of the grown-up shows, but the network decided to move it over to the kids' table. Look for it on June 7. [The Wrap]

... Numb3rs' Navi Rawat will be guest-starring on ABC's Castle in an early April episode. She'll play a sexy mummification expert who—wait a second, did I really need to say "sexy"? That's kind of redundant, as all mummification experts are sexy. Must be something about the smell of crusty old cadavers. [TV Guide]

... Conan O'Brien can't go on the air and talk about NBC and Jay Leno and the whole lying thing, but Andy Richter can. And he did. And guess what? He isn't really too fond of NBC or Leno. You go, Andy! [YouTube video below]
