It's odd to think that the cast of a show entering its third season has never shot more than six episodes at a time, but that's the case for TNT's Southland.
The gritty police drama debuted as a midseason replacement on NBC in 2009 and earned a 13-episode renewal for Season 2. Then, NBC canceled the show before it even premiered, allowing TNT to buy and air the six episodes NBC had in the can in early 2010.

So when TNT ordered a 10-episode third season, which begins Tuesday at 10/9c, the cast and crew were equally excited and cynical. "Well, the joke on set is...

Billy Miller, Ellen Greene
And baby makes three? That terrific character actress Ellen Greene of Little Shop of Horrors and Pushing Daisies fame joins The Young and the Restless for a five-episode stint starting January 7. Longtime fans of the soap will get a kick out of this: Greene will play Primrose DeVille, who is the niece of black market baby racketeer Rose DeVille, a notorious character played back in the '80s by the late, great Darlene Conley. Primrose will connect with Billy Abbott (Billy Miller) soon after he and wife Victoria (Amelia Heinle) get word from the doc that it'll be near impossible for them to conceive children. Y&R has Greene under gag order about plot details but, as you can see in the photo, Primrose does hand Billy a newborn. And Daisy (Yvonne Zima) gives birth to her baby this week and abandons it in a church. Are the bambinos one and the same? We'll leave it up to you to connect the dots. In the meantime, here's what Greene had to say to TV Guide Magazine about her trip to Genoa City!

Greene: Here's what happened: A long time ago when I was very young I played a nurse on one of the New York soaps — I can't even remember which one — and it just terrified me! The whole experience! I just hated it! [Laughs] So I swore ...
Piers Morgan says his new job replacing Larry King on CNN is akin to "following Frank Sinatra in Vegas." But the 45-year-old print journalist, America's Got Talent judge and British-TV talk-show fixture isn't hesitant to try to revive CNN's prime-time ratings with the January 17 premiere of Piers Morgan Tonight (9/8c). He gives TV Guide Magazine a preview of his plans.
TV Guide Magazine: If America's got talent, why did CNN have to hire a Brit to replace Larry King?
Morgan: For the same reason that NBC put a Brit on America's Got Talent. There's been a growing appetite for us probably since Simon Cowell arrived on the scene. There is kind of a belief amongst Americans, true or not, that the Brits are perhaps a little more blunt and more to the point, and we have a quirky humor that's grown in popularity in America. In Britain, I've done ...

Police want Lindsay Lohan charged with battery after determining that she violated her probation in her altercation with a Betty Ford Center staffer last month.
The Riverside County Sheriff's Department said in a news release that Lohan "violated several aspects of her probation, including the battery" during the Dec. 12 incident and will submit its investigation to the District Attorney's office later this week.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox told Lohan in October that she will face a mandatory 180-day jail sentence if she violates probation.
OK folks, Brad Womack is back and from what we saw in last night's Bachelor season premiere, the muscled do-over dude seems to have gotten himself some much-needed head shrinkage. From the multiple "what I have learned" voice-overs about his botched season — as well as his mea culpa to shunned exes Deanna and Jenni — the Georgia-born Texas resident made a good early impression of a man healed by time and therapy...
