Megan Hilty has lined up her first post-Smash television role.
Hilty will re-team with Sean Hayes, who guest-starred on Smash, for his upcoming NBC comedy Sean Saves the World, according to TVLine.
This week, a stadium crowd in London engaged in an impromptu singalong to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" while waiting for Green Day to take the stage, and NBC News anchor Brian Williams rapped Warren G's "Regulate" (sort of). NBA stars read mean tweets about themselves on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and PBS Digital Studios put together a compilation of late children's author Maurice Sendak talking about childhood. Oh, and the Tony Awards happened too. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:

Question: Along with Parenthood, The Good Wife is in my opinion still one of the best dramas on network TV. And the mock trial episode was, as you recently noted, the best so far of the season. However, I have recently been feeling that this show has been lacking, not necessarily in quality (with the exception of the whole Kalinda's husband debacle), but in freshness. For me the show has been very stagnant. A case here, a little Will/Alicia flirtation there, mixed in with Peter's campaign and/or Eli's troubles. Every week is pretty much the same thing with a different guest star. Nothing seems to be new or fresh. What's most frustrating about the lack of freshness is how easily they could remedy that. I would be extremely interested in watching what Cary proposed unfold, for he and Alicia to form their own firm. Watching Cary and Alicia go head to head with Will and Diane would be a welcome change to the same old same old.

Thanks for the Revolution scoop! Is there anything you can tease about the return episode? — James
NATALIE: Death! Yup, there will be a major casualty in the very first episode back. Executive producer Eric Kripke offered up this one tease: "I can say that it changes the dynamic wildly," he says. "It's a story that really kicks off the mythology for the rest of the season." Any guesses as to who's going to bite the dust? Hit the comments!
What have you heard about Bones' finale? Any chance we'll see an engagement for Brennan and Booth? — Britney

Things have taken quite a turn for esteemed Broadway director Derek Wills (Jack Davenport) on NBC's Smash (Tuesdays at 10/9c). Last season, he was behind one of the most of the buzzed-about upcoming musicals on Broadway while also romantically involved with his leading lady, Ivy (Megan Hilty). Unfortunately for poor Ivy, he even enjoyed a brief affair with Hollywood royalty, and Marilyn replacement, Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman).
Cut to one season later and Derek has already lost one job, a remake of The Wiz with Tony winner Ronnie Moore (Jennifer Hudson), his other gig, Bombshell, has been stalled for weeks, and he's been accused of sexual harassment by several stage actresses. Oh, and did we mention that he and Ivy are dunzo? "They almost do a role reversal at one point where she's completely in control and he's almost a little puppy dog for her," Hilty told TVGuide.com last month. "It's a...
