PREMIERE DATES FOR MAN'S BEST AND MAN's WORST FRIEND

... Lock up your teddy bears, FX has announced a premiere date for Wilfred's third season. Elijah Wood and Jason Gann return as a man and his best friend/a figment of his imagination/the devil on Thursday, June 20 at 10pm. Over the season's first two weeks (June 20 and June 27), Wilfred will air back-to-back new episodes. The show will then take July 4 off to go to the park and pee on things, returning the following week with single episodes for the rest of the season. Since Louie is taking the year off, it will be interesting to see how Wilfred does on its own. [FX via press release]

... Lock up your everything and stay inside with plenty of canned food, shotguns, and end-of-the-world apocalypse survival gear, TLC has announced the return of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The reality hit about a swamp troll will be back Wednesday, July 17 at 9pm. Imagine the possibilities if Honey Boo Boo and Duck Dynasty did a crossover episode. Preferably one where Honey Boo Boo dressed up in feathers and was thrown through the sky while quacking. [TLC via press release]

CASTING NEWS


... Television's worst-kept secret is out! Steve Carell will drop by The Office series finale, despite NBC vehemently denying such a thing. Carell's appearance will reportedly be fairly low key, but I don't believe that either. The Office shuts down May 16. [TV Line]

... The Pretty Little Liars spinoff Ravenswood has added two more to its cast, following last week's announcement of Tyler Blackburn as the show's first lead. Brett Dier (The L.A.
