"How cute! Now pack your things and GET OUT!"

... You know how you meet someone and you can't get enough of them and you want to spend every moment of your life with them and you hype them up so much and can't wait to put them on your fall schedule then something changes and things go horribly wrong and you can't stand the sight of them and then you decide to burn them off in the summer and then you cancel them? Yeah, that's what happened between NBC and romance anthology Love Bites. The last episode airs Thursday. [THR]

... Proving that divorce trumps love, TV Land has renewed Fran Drescher's Happily Divorced for a second season because TV Land is just too nice to cancel any shows. [TV Land via press release]

... After a much publicized exit from the show after seven full seasons, Jorja Fox is officially back on CSI as a series regular. Fox, who plays the much-loved Sara Sidle on the CBS procedural, left the show and returned as a guest star, although you wouldn't know it since she appeared in almost every episode. Now she officially returns as a regular just as Ted Danson enters the picture as the show's new boss. What does this mean for you? Probably not that much. What does this mean for Jorja Fox's bank account? A lot! [TV Line]
