Syfy's Face Off Gets Renewed for Season 2

... Face Off, Syfy's reality competition show about special effects makeup, airs its finale tonight, and the network has conveniently decided to renew it for a second season on the same day. It's like the planets aligned perfectly, allowing Syfy to promote tonight's season finale with this great bit of news! How fortunate! [Syfy, via press release]

... Super-hottie Lauren Cohan will play the female lead in The CW's upcoming Heavenly. The drama centers on a young, smokin'-hot female attorney (Cohan) who teams up with a former angel to save clients asses and souls. Cohan is best known for her role in Supernatural's third season, where she played Bela. I hated Bela. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Handsome-man Scott Porter will star in The CW's Hart of Dixie opposite beautiful-girl Rachel Bilson. Dixie is a lighthearted drama about a woman (Bilson) who inherits a medical practice in a small Southern town that's populated by wacky individuals. Porter will play—*shocker!*—Bilson's romantic interest. [Deadline Hollywood]

... NBC has renewed Last Call with Carson Daly for an 11th season. There is so much wrong with that sentence that I don't know where to begin. [NBC]

... TV.com favorite Robert Knepper (Prison Break, Heroes) has joined the cast of the NBC pilot Reconstruction (formerly The Crossing). The drama is set just after the Civil War and centers on a soldier-turned-savior in a small town. Knepper will play the town's sheriff. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Netflix is getting into original programming with House of Cards, which has some serious star power behind it. The drama is about a man who's working his way up the political ladder and stars Kevin Spacey. It's directed by David Fincher, and both Spacey and Fincher are also producing. In other words, this show should be great. In other news, every single TV network out there just wet its pants. [Deadline Hollywood]

Why should the networks be wetting their pants over David Fincher producing a show for Netflix? That's essentially pay-per-view, and is Fincher any more likely to direct more than the pilot than Tobe Hooper directed any episodes of Dark Skies or Nowhere Man beyond their pilots. I doubt Robert Altman's Gun broke any ratings records either.

Oh, I loved Bela and Ruby! Damn fans made Eric Kripke kick both ladies out of the show.
@SawFan4Life: no offense, but you are wrong. It's all the other way around.

good to see cohan getting a regular role. I liked her on Vampire Diaries and she is pretty interesting on Chuck. The show sounds like it is fitting with the CW's formula of supernatural series targeting teens. If Supernatural gets a seventh season I could see this being its lead in or a lead in to Nikita if Vampire Diaries gets paired with Supernatural.

Urm, Burn Notice airs on USA (at least, the new episodes do), so that sinks the CW ship, I'd say.

Lauren Cohan is probably more well known for The Vampire Diaries than Supernatural. I don't even remember her in Supernatural.
