Sedaris will play Stacie Hall, a lobbyist who starts stealing the clients of Alan Cumming's Eli Gold. "We love Amy. We sometimes have dreams of switching all the actors from The Wire and...
When Martha Plimpton woke up Thursday, she got two surprises: an Emmy nomination and a gift from her dog.
The poor pooch had "explosive diarrhea" but, as Plimpton tells TVGuide.com, was "very considerate" and did her business in the shower. "So I spent my morning feeling really good and cleaning up dog poop," Plimpton says. "I like to keep things in balance."

Watch What Happens: Live
Instead of a monologue, there's a Mazel (and Jackhole) of the Week. Instead of coffee or water, the guests get cocktails from the on-set bar. And rather than musical performances from chart-toppers and Grammy winners, the tunes come courtesy of acts such as Real Housewives stars Kim Zolciak and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps.
Yes, Bravo's Watch What Happens: Live is far from your typical late-night show.
"We're Wayne's World meets Playboy After Dark," Andy Cohen, series host and Bravo senior vice president of production and programming, tells TVGuide.com.

USA will air the second half of Royal Pains' Season 2 beginning January 20, so fans don't have to wait until summer to hit the Hamptons again with HankMed. TV Guide Magazine went in search of scoop at The Paley Center for Media's screening and panel discussion, held November 8 in Los Angeles.
The first January episode takes place at a three-day charity golf tournament benefiting the hospital. Jill is on a team with a boozy couple (the woman is played by Amy Sedaris) and a once-promising pro hindered by a degenerative muscular disorder in his hand (Tom Cavanagh). While Hank tries to fix him, he practices his game on Jill. "In the first episode back, one of our own actually gets sick and Hank has to work his diagnostic magic," Reshma Shetty (Divya) teases. The medication leads to a few loopy hospital bed confessions and makes Hank rethink a past love-life decision...

Amy Sedaris, The Closer
Is The Closer gaining its own mentalist? This week on the TNT series (Mondays at 9 pm/ET), Strangers with Candy's Amy Sedaris guest-stars as FBI agent Fritz's sister, Claire. His clairvoyant sister, that is. Will this self-appointed seer make Brenda a believer? Sedaris shared a look at what's to come.
TVGuide.com: How does Amy Sedaris come to be on The Closer? Who knows who?
Amy Sedaris: Can you believe it?! My agency in Los Angeles was like, "What shows do you like?" I said, "Well, I love The Closer," because I'm a Kyra Sedgwick fan. People always think that we look alike.
TVGuide.com: When your casting was announced, many of our readers wanted you to be Brenda's sister, not Fritz's.
Sedaris: That's what I thought, but she doesn't have a sister. But I think it's funny that Fritz ...
"Lost" amid the hubbub surrounding Amy Sedaris' sitcom deal with Fox may have been the juicy nugget that the Strangers with Candy alumna will be guesting on multiple episodes of TNT's The Closer. But rather than playing kin to Kyra Sedgwick, as some of you would have spec'd, Sedaris is coming on as Fritz's sister.
But make no mistake, you'll get plenty of Sedaris-Sedgwick action.
Read all about it, after the jump.
Strangers with Candy alum Amy Sedaris is set to bring her oh-so-special brand of funny back to television, having signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV to create, write and star in her own sitcom project, says the Hollywood Reporter. Hmm, Tina Fey 2.0?
The as-yet-untitled series is being fleshed out by Sedaris and writing partner Paul Dinello, but the premise is based on an idea Sedaris came up with six years ago. Dinello will direct the single-camera show, and no less than Sedaris BFF David Letterman's Worldwide Pants will co-produce.
But first, Sedaris will lens a two-episode arc on TNT's The Closer, playing Fritz's sister. (His psychic sister, TVGuide.com has learned.) Master interrogator Brenda Leigh might get a psychic for a sister-in-law? I smell a zany buddy comedy!

Denis Leary in Rescue Me by Barbara Nitke/FX
After Wednesdays formless, scattershot finale of Rescue Me, Im with Charles Durning. Almost. Head down, eyes closed, taking a long, long nap. For me, this respite will last until next summer, when Rescue Me returns for its fifth and what we have to hope will be a more satisfying season. For Durning, who played Tommys dad, theres no waking up. Will he in retrospect be seen as the lucky one?In a poignant though not entirely unpredictable moment, made more notable for a quiet tenderness one rarely sees on this raw and raucous show, Tommys dad slipped away into a final rest as he sat beside his son at a minor-league baseball game. He brushes something off his clothes and then hes gone. Just like that. Sure beats the violent end that has come to most people Tommy has lost during the run of this series. And yet: sad. Denis Leary played the reaction beautifully. Poor Tommy.I will try to resist using the most obvious baseball-as-life-metaphor analogy here...
Shrek the Third's Cinderella (Amy Sedaris), Snow White (Amy Poehler), Princess Fiona (Cameron Diaz), Rapunzel (Maya Rudolph) and Sleeping Beauty (Cheri Oteri)
Shrek the Third is about to jolt the fairy-tale world. In the third installment of the animated phenomenon (in theaters now), the women save the day.

That's when Fiona empowers gal pals Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Cinderella to take charge. TV Guide sat down at the W Hotel in Westwood, California, with Diaz, Amy Sedaris, and Saturday Night Live stars past and present Amy Poehler,
