TNT Renews Three

... TNT has renewed The Closer, Rizzoli & Isles, and Leverage for new seasons. This is great news, I guess. The only thing I watch on TNT is Charles Barkley. [TNT via press release]

... NBC has confirmed that Rob Lowe will be a series regular, and not merely that guy who stops by and eats all the Kraft Service, on laugh-fest Parks and Recreation.

... NBC has also said that 30 Rock will be doing a live episode on October 14. Well, technically two, one for each coast. SUCK IT, MIDWEST! Anyway, this further confirms that 30 Rock really is just a long Saturday Night Live sketch. [E! Online]

... Oh man oh god oh man oh god that Law & Order: Los Angeles cast is getting pretty awesome, dude. First it was Skeet Ulrich, then it was Alfred Molina, and now it's Terrence Howard! Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit. Sweet cast, but I still won't watch it. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Terry O'Quinn has launched into the upper echelon of television actors, thanks to playing the destiny-fueled and sometimes dead John Locke on ABC's Lost. So now he has his pick of roles to play. Which is why I want to blow my brains out after seeing what his first post-Lost gig will be: a Lifetime made-for-TV movie. [NY Mag]

... Heidi Montag has filed for divor—OH WHO CARES. [People]

... Cougar Town has been looking for a new name that better reflects the show and strays from the "Cougar" stigma. They've finally decided, and it's... [EW]

... Jersey Shore news! Snooki got arrested and was seen beer-bonging Coke. Wow, she looks fantastic! [TMZ]

Why does Rob Lowe keep getting hired. The man is useless.
