Rosie O'Donnell, Maia Mitchell
Rosie O'Donnell is returning to The Fosters!
"I'm doing three episodes in the second half of this season," O'Donnell told TVGuide.com after the season premiere of The View. "ABC has been very nice in allowing me the time to go do that. When I took this job, I made sure I could still do The Fosters because I like being recognized by 12-year-olds at the mall. They call me [my character's name] Rita, but still I don't mind."

O'Donnell appeared in five episodes in Season 1 and reprised her role for two more earlier this season, guiding Callie as she found her birth father Robert (Kerr Smith). ABC Family declined to comment.

Finale Preview: Get scoop on 39 season-enders
As shown in the closing moments of last week's episode, E.J. Barrett (Sarah Jane Morris) and her team were on the wrong end of the Port-to-Port Killer's gun. Regardless of how that all works out, the deadly turns continue when P2P, aka Lt. Jonas Cobb (guest star Kerr Smith), gets his hands on Ziva (Cote de Pablo).

Exclusive: Meet NCIS' newest team members
Former Dawson's Creek star Kerr Smith has booked a season-ending, two-episode arc on the CBS crime drama, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively...
Although the CW's Life Unexpected has been all but canceled, creator Liz Tigelaar was tasked with writing a finale that could serve as a series-ender that would satisfy fans.
A show about two unlikely parents whose 16-year-old child enters their lives, Life Unexpected stars Shiri Appleby as Cate and Kristoffer Polaha as Baze, opposites who hooked up at the high school prom and subsequently produced a child. After giving her daughter up for adoption, Cate went on to become a successful radio host whose life with boyfriend Ryan (Kerr Smith) was rocked when said child, Lux (Britt Robertson), re-entered her life.
While the relationships between characters were messy in Life Unexpected's first season, things are about to get even messier: In Season 2, Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Ryan (Kerr Smith) will be navigating their new marriage, Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) will deal with rejection, and Lux (Britt Robertson) will dive head-first into a May-December relationship.
Shiri Appleby, Kristoffer Polaha
Are Cate and Baze over for good? Last viewers saw, Cate and Ryan tied the knot, but executive producer Liz Tigelaar says not to count Baze out yet. Tigelaar tells TVGuide.com about the upcoming second season of Life Unexpected, which she says will focus on how each character redefines themselves now that their family dynamics have changed.
Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Ryan (Kerr Smith) intend to walk down the aisle in tonight's season finale of the CW's Life Unexpected (8/7c). But will they make it through the nuptials?

Life Unexpected, Shiri Appleby
