... Larry King has died. Oh wait, what? He just retired? Oh. Okay. Larry King has retired as host of Larry King Live, the long-running program that began 25 years ago. King will still hang around the CNN offices occasionally, hosting various specials and stealing pens, but he's done with his nightly show. [CNN]

... and who will replace THE KING!? Piers Morgan! Who? Piers Morgan, that British dude who judges America's Got Talent! We're still waiting on something official official, but it's looking like a done deal. [Radar Online]

... The Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi is quickly becoming my least favorite person on Earth. The tramp is telling Star that she's going to be on the cover of Playboy and pose nude for the mag, but Playboy has said "What? That bitch crazayyyyy!" Anyway, I'm not really a fan of her, so here's a picture of her being stupid. [OK!]

... Elijah Wood and his weird self will be starring in FX's adaptation of the incredibly weird Australian sitcom Wilfred. If you'll recall, Wilfred is the show about a man (Wood) who dates a girl with a talking man-dog that drinks and rides the Ganja train. Heck yeah, I'm watching. [EW]

... All three Kardashian sisters will play themselves in the Season 3e premiere of 90210. The episode airs on September 13, so make sure you take your TV to an STD specialist on the 14th. [People]

... You want more CW premiere dates? It's a little early, but okay. The Vampire Diaries begins Season 2 on September 9, followed by the series premiere of Nikita. Gossip Girl returns September 13, One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected come back September 14, and Smallville and Supernatural (yay!) arrive on on September 24. More dates in the link --> [Variety]

... Nestor Carbonell (aka Lost's Richard Alpert) will be joining Psych for a multi-episode arc as Shawn's rival. I officially declare this "radical." [Fancast]

... RUMOR ALERT! Johnny Depp is going to play The Doctor in a Doctor Who movie adaptation! /Rumor. [Tor]

... Marvel continues to try to rule the world, this time by invading the television space. The company has formed a division that specifically concentrates on television, and leading the team will be former Heroes writer Jeph Loeb. Loeb is also an accomplished comic writer and even worked on Lost and Smallville. But of greatest importance, he wrote Teen Wolf! [io9]
