WILL MARIO LOPEZ HOST?

... The CW will air just about anything to lure in today's fickle, valuable youths, and come January 2015, those youths will gather 'round their television sets to watch the World Dog Awards. The event will celebrate pooches in entertainment, the military, and viral videos, and it will be watched by literally tens of people. I'm going to be so pissed if Bear from Person of Interest gets Tatiana Maslany'd! [CW via press release]


BUSINESS TIME

... TV Land has canceled Kirstie, which starred Kirstie Alley as a Broadway star whose life is turned upside-down and backwards when her long-lost son shows up looking to reconnect with his mother. Wow! Sounds wacky! Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards also starred, making Kirstie the Mt. Rushmore of second-fiddle '80s and '90s sitcom stars. [Deadline]

... In more positive TV Land news, the network has ordered 10 episodes of Jim Gaffigan's The Gaffigan Show, which was originally developed for CBS. The single-camera comedy stars Gaffigan as a man who's struggling to balance work and family in New York City, you know the drill. And in a somewhat unique dual-network set-up, episodes will air on Comedy Central within a week of their TV Land debut. Ashley Williams, Adam Goldberg, and Michael Ian Black will also star. [TV Land via press release]

... VH1 has ordered a third season of Hit the Floor, its original drama about basketball and apparently murder. The Season 2 finale will air Monday, August 11, so tune in then to find out whether the L.A. Devils win the championship and Olivia's killer is identified! This makes basketball sound dangerous, guys! [VH1 via press release]



CASTING NEWS

... The Originals' Claire Holt has landed one of the lead roles in NBC's Aquarius, the Charles Manson drama starring David Duchovny, with Game of Thrones' Renly Baratheon as the infamous serial killer. Holt will play a female cop, which means her main hang-up will likely be convincing people to take her seriously amid all the male-dominated cop chest-thumping. [Deadline]

... Kyra Sedgwick will drop by Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a couple episodes in Season 2. She'll play a deputy chief and longtime rival of Captain Holt's who makes life hard for Holt and his precinct. This sounds like a situation where Andy Samberg will make some funny faces in his underpants! [EW]

... Netflix's older-crowd comedy Grace and Frankie has added some young'uns. Some lady named Brooklyn Decker (super model) and Ethan Embry (Once Upon a TimeBrotherhood) will join Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda in the series about two women who find out that their husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) are gay and planning to marry each other. Decker will play Fonda's daughter, and Embry will play Tomlin's son. [TV Line]

... Syfy's upcoming 12 Monkeyredo (check out the first trailer here) has cast the role that was originally played by Brad Pitt in the Terry Gilliam film. And get this, the character will be a girl! Emily Hampshire (Rookie Blue) will play Jennifer Goines, an unstable mental patient. Also joining the cast is Tom Noonan (DamagesHell on Wheels), as a mysterious villain. [Syfy via press release]

... CSI has tapped chiseled action-star god Mark Valley (FringeHuman Target) for a recurring role in Season 15. He'll play a P.I. who works with Elisabeth Shue's Finlay to find his missing partner. And yes, they will probably boink. [EW]

... The Blacklist has tapped House of Cards' Mozhan Marno as a former Mossad agent and current spy who butts heads with Red Reddington. She'll be a series regular, so don't fall for all those near-death experiences she'll inevitably have in the first 21 episodes of Season 2. [THR]

... Nowwwwwww here's a little story I got to tell about one bad brother, you know sorta-well. It started way back in history and it might be coming soon to your TV. Ron Livingston (Swingers) has landed the role of Paul Revere in AMC's comedy pilot We Hate Paul Revere, about a pair of dudes who live in Colonial Boston and do not care for Mr. "The British Are Coming!" The project is written by and stars Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner. In related news, can you believe The Beastie Boys' Licensed to Ill came out almost 28 years ago? [Deadline]


REQUIRED DOME VIEWING

... Here is some very important information regarding Julia Shumway on Under the Dome:



RECENT STORIES YOU MAY HAVE MISSED ON TV.COM

... Here's Lily's take on last night's totally teary Bachelorette finale, in which two personality-free statues fell in love and one guy nearly killed himself on live TV.

... Price watched last night's Teen Wolf and did his typically hilarious thing with it!

... Last night's Under the Dome was so dumb that it's a wonder I'm still able to form full sentences. 

... Just when you thought internet lists couldn't get any sillier, I went and compiled the best shows on every network RIGHT NOW!

Man, I miss Human Target. There is a push for comic and super hero like shows, Fox should bring that back. It was a good show up until they ruined it.

Tim, how does one make faces in one's underpants? Does Samberg have a second face on his genitals or buttocks, or will he be wearing his underpants over his head and making faces behind them?

More dogs! Yay! Yahoo!

Prediction: Bear and Winston will split the best Actor vote, giving Trailer the first ever doggie Actor award.

Mark Valley guest starred once in CSI - somewhere in season one, he was trying to frame Nick for the murder he comitted ;P

It's not uncommon. Most of the main / popular cast on the regular "Law & Order" first appeared as some unrelated minor character. Then later got hired on as someone else.
Merkeson (VanBuren) and Orbach (Lennie Briscoe) are two such examples.

I wonder if they'll mention something, like "have we met?"

Or "you look kinda familiar" ;)

Try watching an old show like Mod Squad currently on MeTV. Sammy Davis Jr. in two separate roles, Lou Gossett Jr. in two roles, Daniel J. Travanti also in two separate roles and all in just two seasons. I did not know they did that back then and do not really see it today.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible, Hawaii Five-O also ;)

I was hoping "The CW's World Dog Awards" would have been about giving awards to the werewolves on all of their shows. Best growl, best bite, best concealing your nakedness after you turn back into a human....

honestly, I didn't even know Kirstie Alley had her own show...I mean, I was aware she had a thing w/ TVLand, but I just assumed she was on that Cleveland show, since that's the place where TV stars go for one last fling with the limelight before fading away

Omg, I loove the cast of the Gaffigan Show and should watch that. On Comedy Central.

and I like Tom Noonan. He can be creepy. (Except in the movie Manhunter, that was shit)

Wow, TV Land actually cancelled something? Here's hoping it's the start of a trend.

Did you really need to clarify what the World Dog Awards was for in the heading?

Good for Claire Holt, but I wish she was instead playing some new young hippie follower of Manson's because that would be so much more fun than the whole straightlaced cop who can't get no repect thing. Maybe she'll go undercover? Oh I hope she goes undercover. I'm in.

I think it's disappointing. She had an established, recognizable, fairly popular character to continue with on a fairly popular spin-off and she throws it away for something new, and likely not that great or believable for her, making The Originals more empty of Originals and a female co-lead to diversify it more. I think you're right about her possibly being a follower of Manson's, if they are casting such roles, as she might have been a better fit in something like that.

Yeah, she'll definitely be the tiniest, adorable-eat, least believable cop ever, but I guess it's a good career move to escape the CW. I mean, I love so many shows on the CW but actors do seem to get trapped there.
